A star is born.
FANTASTIC! GO CATS!
Yea….phewwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!! TG..it is over with.
first cals trophy case says biiiiiotch!
Do I get extra credit because I am still at work and was still “First”!!
I knew that kid was smarter than Shabazz.
GG next year everyone else.
Really great pickup. We could afford to lose Muhammad but we definitely needed Noel. Look to hear a lot of talk about attempting to get Pollard and Jefferson
now all of you should go back to the live blog and see how stupid you look. you are all in your upper 20’s and 30’s. it’s time to grow up. when you thought nerlens would go to g-town you would complain that you didn’t like flat tops. next time try to not be a tool
I hope all of you feel better now that you are all “first”
From the Uni-brow to the Flat-top!
We didn’t need Shabazz, he would’ve just been icing on the cake. We HAD to get NN. Now, if we add a Bennett or a Jefferson? We’re in GREAT shape!!
Suck it Richard..
The brow spoke last season…,now the hair speaks loud and clear! UK
All the way again baby!!! GBB!
We got the FLAT TOP FELLER!!! Turley Curd rejoices!
The fences were just raised on all 3 bridges in Louisville
Can’t wait to see Cal
And the new trophy tomorrow.
Bringing back the Flat top to UK!
As Jerry Reed would say… SAAAAAWWWWWNNNNNNN!!!
Im pretty sure he picked UK because georgetown was too difficult to shave on his head?
Cats cats cats!
Poor Shabazz…first Nerlens re-classifies and steals his glory, and now on signing day he does it again. #secondfiddle
Bennett is still are #1 target, but now the heat will turn up on Pollard and Jefferson
Back 2 Back?
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noooeeelllll!
Chasing UCLA….bring on 9!
10. Then what the hell are you doing on this site? Hater…
BANG BISCUIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Merry Christmas. Noel in Kentucky
I’m getting a flat top! Live action!!!!
incredible…now let’s get bennett and oriaki. that would be one hell of a frontline.
go big blue!
FLAT. TOP. FELLER.
“Can’t stop the Flat Top” ???
National Champions back to back???? i think YES!!!!!
I told you fools not to worry. Big daddy is in control. Sit back and enjoy #9.
What does this do to our preseason rankings
From BROW DOWN to TOP DOWN! Could be fun at on campus parties?
Shock the world! welcome aboard wildcat!
I was convinced that Nerlens was picking Georgetown when he had the Georgetown snapback with the generic Kentucky and Syracuse hats lol.
Nine will be FINE
LETS BURN SOME SHIT!!!!
uk mom…we gotta be #1 now
Kid n play in tha house
championship #8? make it 9, im not drivin
YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!! WELCOME TO THE BIG BLUE NATION N3! C! A! T! S! CATS! CATS! CATS!
Burn couches for the box 2nite!
In Cal we Trust!!!
We are #1 again….. lets get Amile Jefferson and start working on 2013 with the Harrison twins
32) We’re done with Oriakhi now… unless we miss on Bennett. Oriakhi can’t really play the 4 and he wants to get 30 plus minutes a game. He really has trouble defending the 4 and Cal wants a guys that can do that. We got Cauley as a back up center… a great back up center at that.
we really just wanted Oriakhi because if we didn’t get Noel we would be SUPER thin at C. Now you can almost pencil in Oriakhi to Mizzou
Nerlens No el oh el… #realtalk
i shit my pants
Number one player in the class again…..yawn
Number one recruiting class again……yawn
Sooooooooo, assuming we lost 6 players, we got these guys for next year:
We will be fine!
51) We want Bennett the most. He can very effectively play the 3 or 4. Amile is a very small 4 but I would still love to have him cause of his Motor. We’re all out after Bennett now and we’ll probably hope to land 1 out of the Pollard/Jefferson mix
The First Noel!!! (At UK)
I love this kid, Nerlens.
Thought CAL’s Christmas surprise was our first Noel.
He will Rock!
I am STOKED!!!!
Get hype with me big blue nation!!!!
You are correct Mr. Darling, we got the Flat Top Feller. What about it Turley, Fake Barney, etc.? Maybe Matt won”t be so negative tomorrow. I say we ain”t finished.
Where is that big mouth prick Richard
Nerlens Noel = Nine
So will it be fear the flat top now. I am going to hang up my brow shirt and wait for my flat top shirt. GO BIG BLUE
Nerlens Noel: #BBN yall ready to get #9 ?!?!
this Nerlens kid ain’t a liberal commie, is he?
YES!!! I love it when them colored boys do crazy stuff with their hair!!
#42, I was thinking the same thing. Glad we were wrong!
WOOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BBN IS GONNA LOVE THIS GUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OOPS!!! ALREADY DO!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Do you know how much better Will Cauley will develop having to play Nerlens in practice? Davis and Nerlens have affected us 105%!
Exactly what I wished for!!! No disrespect to Bazz…but I hope y’all know what I mean.
hood will make us forget bazz…welcome nerlens…
TEEEEEEEEEEE HEEEEEEEEEEE !!! Suck it G town! Nanny nanny boo boo stick your head in doo doo! Ok im done
Where you at Richard tell us about louisvilles 3 star recruits
Flat Top Feller! @turleycurd1
Hey RICHARD!!! Louisville Shots Gettin’ Blocked…..By Mr. Flat Top!!!
Noel’s hair is called the box…. Fear the box!!!
If Indiana and Louisville are really our biggest competition next year, this is going to be as easy as Jurken your Peter!
Someone please photoshop Nerlens with a unibrow and Anthony with a flatop.
Ill have a #9 please…hold the vacate…Ucle MMMMMBAHAHAHAHA!!
Kentucky won the Nerlens Noel contest but Matt has decided to give him to someone else….
Who cares about some high school boys? It’s baseball season!
81) That means sumpin else too
I’m confused, does Nerlens block shots with this hands or his hair? If Kidd-G comes back, you’ll see that undefeated season. And wasn’t it nice to have a BBall event where that guy with the short erotic attention span wasn’t mentioned?
Almost worth watching that 90 minute anal probing called a selection show….. like paint drying. I blame Lebron, 30 minute would have been plenty.
NN just tweeted, “BBN–yall ready to go get #9?!?!” it’s going to be another GREAT BASKETBALL season!!!!!!!!!!
WELCOME……….. to BBN Nerlens Noel… can’t wait till the opening of opening night in the Rupp.. 🙂
Stop being a Richard …Richard
See Block City.
Richard….meet da flat top feller on your way out!
86- That’s usually what the fourth place basketball team says.
Welcome to the family Nerlens! Unlike Shabazz, you will soon realize that there is simply nothing else in college basketball that compares to being a Kentucky Wildcat!
Those poor high school kids had a lot of pressure on them and looked a little uncomfortable in front of the camera….but none as uncomfortable as Dave Telep.
GUESS HE SHOCKED THE WORLD!!!!!!
I’m here, and I have Swop’s di** in my mouth.
can’t wait to see the CAT mascot with the Flat Top
65 Hes got a mouth full of big prick..
Hey Nerlens!!! Nice job on the back of the head. You can put #9 on the sides because it is coming. Jefferson and Bennett next. Teague comes back(hope). WORLD DOMINATION!!!
Nerlens for Nine baby!!!
BANG BISCUIT GOOD NIGHT
#13: Love it!!
The intelligent guy announces UCLA and the other guy is ‘taking his talents’ with UK shaved into his head.
Flat Top Feller!!!
Ke NN Tucky !!!!!!!!!
Chris Fisher called Shabazz to UCLA and Noel to UK 6 weeks ago. Chris has the best sources of all the UK sites. Good job Chris.
#65, #78, #80 hahaha Richard is conspicuously absent. Man, it must really suck to be a cardianal fan. All they have to look forward to is the same ol shit, mediocrity.
The ‘intelligent guy’? Didn’t you hear him? He’s going to UCLA?
2011 = Year of the Unibrow
2012 = Year of the Hi-Top
everyone unfollow shabazz on twitter!!!
thank you nerlins…..you legitimized us in one swift move. i hope you enjoy your time in lexington. you are dearly loved
Can’t stop the top
I wanted Noel over Shabazz!! I was concerned about the NCAA warnings from a month ago about him. Good luck to Shabazz though, wish him the best, SO LONG AS IT DOESNT GET IN THE WAY OF UK AND NOEL!!!
His hair style is called a box or a high top fade…. Not a flat top!
My first tweet in forever this morning:
@NerlensNoel3 18th birthday is tomorrow… Pick UK for me?
Dang it! We have to wait 7 months!!!! I heard a lot of “I” with Shabazz, I heard a lot of we when they interviewed three of the new UK players! Cal does not get enough credit for the “WE”, that is what won this years championship. Also, it is easier to teach a big man offense than it is to teach him defense, Noel already has the defense down! I still think we are going to get one nice suprise from this years team, one of the guys will be back! Approximately 210 days to wait! I was also impressed with Bennett when they interviewed him, he may come if all of this years team goes! WOW!
Welcome to the family!!!!!!!!
Saw Nerlins at Pazzo’s back on feb.12. People knew who he was, yet largely restrained themselves. Gotta give give these guys some room.
#9 is as close as Anthony Davis’ eye brows.
MKG just tweeted Nerlens welcome to BBN Ha Ha 9 is fine!!
Pretty brave kid to come to UK and immediately get compared to Anthony Davis.
Nerlens, welcome to without a doubt the most exciting place for college basketball on the planet. You are going to learn more, develop more and increase you opportunities more here then you could have possibly imagined. Be smart listen to what coach Cal tells you, trust your teammates and most of all have fun kid. You just made everyone’s day in the BBN!!!
Demarcus said it best: This isn’t a spelling bee.
@114 Show some class man. He made his decision. Time will tell if he was right or not, and likely either way he’ll be fine. Either place was just a layover to his NBA career. Would have loved to have him, but all the same Kentucky isn’t for everybody.
MKG sported a small flat-top in the B&W game in the pre-season :)….
I understand that Nerlens suppressed the tsunami that took place in Indonesia today.
I’m going to have to order more hats for next year.
OK, fine. But who was MVP of the Derbylcious classic? Huh?
HEY !!! don’t forget that we will have Jon Hood next year .
I saw Nerlens in Nawlins (La.)…walking down the street…said hello to him as he past by….at the time was walking beside some Buckeye fans…they said, “who was that”…i said “see, that’s the difference between us (BBN) and everyone else….we know who that is…he’s the number one prospect in the nation” and that is likely why he will be at Kentucky next year”.
FEAR THE BROW FOR #8
FEAR THE FADE FOR #9
Aww how cute, the little boi got a 5 dolla cut on his 2 dolla fade. Can’t Wait…..to watch my boi CZ 40 tear.him.up. He gonna be overhyyyyypppped. HypeSquad Out!
I have said it from the start, Jon Hood will be a factor before he leaves UK. Next year would be a good time to start contributing.
I think this will seal the deal with Oriakhi. He will be a cat. Any guards left at this point or may be Teague will come bake
We need Lamb…and we’re set
121-was also impressed with the 3 UK guys and Bennett when interviewed. They all seemed like good kids and we will get Bennett, just MO.
#137 Incase you missed it we got number 8.And took the IU team to the woodshed.
@81 You can call it the box, you can call it the high top fade, Turly Curd from Nonesuch is gonna call him that flat top fellar…
HEY 137….WHY DON’T YOU TAKE YOUR OVER RATED HOOSIERS AND STICK THEM WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE…AND I’LL EVEN HELP YOU IF YOU NEED ANY HELP.
#46 nice old school reference. Bring on Bennet or Oriaki now. Sorry for Shabazz, he’s going to miss out on a title run, and rarely make prime time playing on the left coast. GO CATS!
HEY HOOSIER HYPE SQUAD…TWO FOUR SIX EIGHT TELL US HOW OUR A$$ TASTES
Ey 146…three five seven nine..wildcat puss’s know how to whine! Y’all a buncha cheaters and can Neva be pure like Waterfords buzza beata! Ya dig?? #hypesquad!
147- You know your team is good when the only thing you can brag about is beating UK in the regular season, while watching them win number 8 this 8pril. Stay hyped, we’ll just keep winning championships. Go Big Blue!
147: …says the guy who’s team just got off sanctions for cheating. Lmao
Watford got it handed to him when it really mattered. Cheaters? The only reason you guys are where you are is because Adidas is funneling through Indiana elite right to you.
You made a sweet 16. Whoopty doo! and you barely pulled that off. it is so rare for you to beat us that you rush the floor. win something that matters and then come talk trash to a school with 3 straight elite eights, 2 straight final 4s, and reigning national champs.
P.s. We won the game that mattered…. By 12, and hung triple digits on ya
So Noel is going to be a threat of breaking Davis’s shot blocking record. Does it count if his flat-top blocks a shot? That seems very likely. Nerlens Noel averages 3 blocks per game, Nerlens Noel’s flat-top averages 1.6 blocks per game. Winner, winner chicken dinner!
matt what is going to be John Hoods status next year?
