Evan Daniels of 247 Sports answered the question many Kentucky fans are wondering… “What is wrong with Cal?”
Here is what Daniels had to say in his #AskEvan mailbag:
I think some of this is overreaction. Here’s why: The expectations for this year’s Kentucky team were high. They were to be a title contender and a dominant one at that. While Kentucky sits at 7-2, they certainly haven’t been dominant. But it’s early. To throw fuel on the fire, the team Kentucky fans hate the most (outside of Louisville) right now is Duke. Duke blasted Kentucky the first game of the season and is the current media darling, and rightfully so. Then throw in the fact that Kentucky lost out on James Wiseman and the natives are restless.
Mind you Kentucky still has two top 10 recruits – Kahlil Whitney and Tyrese Maxey – committed, plus another potential good college player in Dontaie Allen in their 2019 class. I’ve seen claims that Kentucky isn’t recruiting well enough. I’m not entertaining that.
This is not the same Calipari we are used to. That is clear. So, do you agree with Daniels? Are fans and the media overreacting? Considering the three recruits Kentucky has right now and the ones Kentucky can potentially still land, Kentucky can still end up with a very good recruiting class.
