    …or it may be that attending the draft is a higher priority for him.

      You like being Debbie Downer all the time? Or just when you post here? Cause I’d hate to be that negative all the time.

    2. 4everUKblue

      I would expect no less for VACat.

    3. calcat

      Yeah. Because kids achieving their dreams is a bad thing.

      It is a priority for him. And, there is no reason to be ashamed of that. He cares about these kids not to mention it is marketing for UK basketball. Would I have liked an EE win in 2017 and 2019? Yep. Am I still supportive of him at UK? Yep! There are plenty of folks against him that also probably loved new coke until it came out. A classic becomes a classic when “you don’t know what you got till it’s gone!”

      When will we know for sure? I don’t think Cal would have left without an answer.#9 #BBN

    It’s great that Blackshear already hates Duke.

  3. TOMCATS1990

    Trust CAL he will seal the deal

  4. KYjellyRoll

    I know that walk… blackshear is a wildcat folks. I don’t see cal just taking off without some news

  5. KYjellyRoll

    I was also analyzing his walk lol. And number 2 sounds like it could be the way it went down. Good job


    That’s Swaggy Cal! DAMN STRAIGHT HELL YEAH!

    Facts are indeed optional.

      Yes facts are indeed optional in an OPINION pieces.

    I like to think that first conversation with blackshear went like this:
    Blackshear: Coach, i want to come to Kentucky for my last year.
    Cal: we’d love to have you, but are you sure? You know Kentucky isn’t for everyone…?
    Blackshear: I’m pretty sure…
    Cal: ok, but you should look at some other schools to make sure you are making the best decision for you. Why don’t you do that? Go see the other options on your list, then come visit Lexington if you are still interested after that and we’ll put the paperwork together.
    A few visits later….
    Blackshear: ok coach, I’m ready to come see Lexington and do some paperwork…..

      I like it!

    2. mashman 93

      You’re spot on.

    3. justgettingstartedbro

      Ya…. that must have been how it went

  9. mashman 93

    We know national titles are damn hard to win,but if we get Blackshear is it final four or bust? Title or bust? I know what our expectations are every year. If we don’t end up in final four is it failure? Sorry about saying “we” so much it’s in my blood. GO BIG BLUE!!!!

    1. StuckinLville

      If we get him and dont win it with this mix of veterans and freshmen, we just arent ever winning again. This team will not have any weakness. It’s title or bust.

    Everyone knows the draft is his 2nd priority to developing the players who make it there. He said that day one. Accept it or not, it is what has made UK the most dominant team in one decade since ucla.

    You want to talk about over analyzing his walk? I counted his steps in the video. All 9 of them.
