    None of the 3 end up at UK.

  2. Not Dan Issel

    Since most of UK’s current roster will be back next year, Hurt and Herro would make a wonderful combo, don’t you think?

      Just like last year they were all coming back. Uk isnt winning title this or next year. Cal is gonna go 20 years 1 title

    3. J. Did

      I was suspicious. Watched a video or two. Kid legit. I am on board.


      Their nicknames would be “White & Whiter”

    Why does Calipari continue to recruit against Duke when he knows he’ll lose? Kentucky is seen as a has-been now.

    1. bigblue98

      You’re probably right. We should just stop playing basketball and concede everything to Duke. They will get every recruit in the country and have 25 players on the team. They will also win every championship till the end of time. Thanks for your expertise – maybe Cal and the coaches can get out while they still have time since you’ve determined we’re a has-been. Either you’re one of the most pessimistic fans in the world or a troll. Hopefully the latter as UK doesn’t need piss poor fans like you supporting.

      To steal from another poster: congratulations bigblue98, you’re now the proud owner of a cahillscrossingnt!

    Hurt and Herro running the pick and pop would be DEADLY

    Haters out in full force today

  6. Cmart0907

    In other news. Texas A&M just beat Alabama.

    I think it is less about “haters out in full force” than frustration with our inability to attract the best of the best. We have been swinging and missing a lot lately. It reminds me of erstwhile Charlie Brown, attempting to kick a football only to have it pulled away at the last second. We get excited about a “Kentucky lean,” only to find that we were never under serious consideration. I would love to have Hurt at Kentucky, but recent history says that it is unlikely to happen. We need to get our recruiting mojo back or adapt to the new realty. Since the former is unlikely since Duke is scooping up elite recruits, we need to change our approach. We are still getting high quality recruits, but not the caliber who will dominate and make an immediate impact. So lets keep our players long enough for them to reach their college potential while providing continuity for the program. Otherwise, it will be the same broken record every year. The OAD system is a long shot that seldom pays off and has not been Kentucky’s friend in recent years.

    Memphis has sucked this year so what is the facination with Penny hardlycoach.

  9. rlburd2

    going to duke. I mean look at him.

  10. BigolBlue

    Hes only not going to duke if coack k doesnt show interest. Cal has to beg these elite kids to come now while K just looks in their direction and steal them from Cal

    1. Skooms

      Not true… Jeff Capel only had to look their direction. K will still get top talent, but not like he did with Capel on staff. Have you noticed that everything changed once Coach O left us? The assistants play a HUGE role in recruiting.

    2. mcp157

      Coach O leaving us was huge. We need a clone of him to get back where we were!

    that hurt guy couldnt guard anybody in the sec. too awkward athletically to keep up with guards and too weak to guard anyone in the paint

  12. Kat4Life

    Would love to get this kid, but he just SCREAMS Duke when you look at him……hope I’m wrong; we could really use him.
