    Now that Andrew Wiggins has made his choice without fanfare, Rick Pitino has his tattoo, Orb has moved to Pimlico and John Calipari manages to keep his name in the news (inviting Bill Clinton to his fantasy camp), the next big thing in Kentucky has to be Drew Barker.
    Connor High School’s splendid 6-feet-3, 215-pound quarterback is GI Joe clean-cut, tall enough to see over crowds at the mall, has no tattoos that we know about, and is the latest prize grease-penciled onto Mark Stoops’ board in the war room in Lexington.

    A Bullitt East base runner beats a throw to second base that Spencer County shortstop Allie Sharp is fielding as second baseman Elisabeth Huckleberry backs her up on the play.

    Our theme for the week.
    • Jarrod Polson, Jon Hood and Twany Beckham received their undergraduate degrees at the University of Kentucky on Sunday. A momentous achievement. Then an Internet site hoisted a photo of Polson and Hood in their robes posing with John Calipari.
    The image prompted one viewer to quip: “What a rare eBay item that is. A picture of graduating basketball players with John Calipari in it.”
    My God, that guy said exactly what I was thinking.
