Dr. Saturday: Darrell Scott jumps Colorado's sinking ship, leaves the hype behind
The Ralphie Report: Darrell Scott Transfers, One Could Guess It's Just the Beginning
What today's events also shows is that it isn't as rosy in the Buffs' locker room as Dan Hawkins tries to make it out to be. It isn't all peachy like a few select players make it out to be. The program isn't going in the right direction like Mike Bohn thinks it is. Overall, it is a mess and the people running the ship are not capable. The perspective of Colorado football is out of focus right now where the goal is not winning. It isn't. Argue it all you want but winning isn't the goal and that is the problem. It can't be because you don't lose players for no apparent reason when they believe the ship is being steered in the right direction.
Symbolically, this is a bad day. I can only imagine the negative perspective this news will have on a national level. Think about potential recruits now. They will be saying, "if they can't keep Darrell Scott happy, can they keep me happy?" The ramifications of this is big and once again, on a national level, Colorado is a laughing stock. Every single coach the Buffs go up against in a recruiting battle will only have to utter two words to the kid to get his attention about the red flags in going to Colorado: Darrell Scott.

ESPN.com: Missouri-bound point guard Phil Pressey is ready to take his game to new heights
When Phil Pressey chose Missouri over Arizona, Baylor, UCLA and other schools, it didn't make sense to some outsiders. It made perfect sense to the insiders.
Missouri coach Mike Anderson was Paul Pressey's college roommate at Tulsa.
"I think that Phillip had a connection in that our kids grew up together for seven or eight years, though it was kind of a distant relationship, like an uncle," Paul Pressey said. "Me and Coach Anderson were teammates in college, and during the summer when I was playing pro we would spend our summers together with our kids.
"When our season was over, we'd drive from Milwaukee, and they'd drive up from Arkansas [where Anderson was an assistant]. We'd meet in Branson, Mo., and we'd do the Bass Pro shop, Silver Dollar City, float down the river with our kids, barbecue outside, go antique shopping, to music shops. We had five or six families."
Said Phil, who doesn't always say a lot, "I had a good connection with the head coach, and I thought it was the best fit for me."
Dad said, "I know coach Anderson is going to take care of him, help him be a young man."

Senator Blutarsky: Irrefutable means never having to say you're sorry
Open-ended standards inconsistently applied from conference to conference and an overall lack of transparency in the review process make for a bad system. Unfortunately, I’m not sure where the motivation to change things for the better would come from.
