Where there's smoke there is fire...Eric Bledsoe may still get in trouble...

We first told you about this back in May read it RIGHT HERE.

The story, about one of Kentucky's "One and Done's" from this past season in basketball. The player is former Kentucky basketball player Eric Bledsoe.

Bledsoe, though not the lynchpin of the 2009-10 team, contributed and was thought of highly enough to be drafted in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Now comes word that the story in May, may have been on to something. It appears, in a published report today, that there is a rather large question about what...and how Bledsoe acquired a grade he needed in order to qualify at Kentucky.

If we are a part of the Kentucky basketball program, we might be worried right now. It may turn out to be much ado about nothing. But it may not.

There seems to be a pretty big discrepancy about just how Bledsoe finished his time in high school. There also seems to be a strong effort by the people involved at the high school level to not discuss this at any length.

While it is plausible that he made the intellectual leap between his junior and senior years in high school, we, quite honestly don't buy it. If we are John Calipari and the "Big Blue Nation", we'd also be very concerned. There have been several mentions over the years about making deals with the devil, they could very easily come back to haunt you.

Here is what qualifies as big news in Lexington, Bledsoe's agreement to play for Kentucky. Thanks YouTube:
