    He has a baby??

    1. Kentuckybbnfan01

      It was his brothers I believe

    2. StillBP

      yeah, from a UGA blog: Edwards’ prop of choice as he made his announcement at a commitment ceremony at Holy Spirit Prep was his little, bitty nephew, Jace, son of his sister Antoinette. When it came time for the big announcement, Edwards simply unzipped the 4-month-old’s tiny hoodie to reveal a Georgia Bulldogs’ T-shirt underneath.

    We need another guard to come in unless Hagans stays or herro or even a grad we need to go get a couple of big guys it would be nice to get Todd but we should focus on McDaniel’s and hurt for right now let’s move on from Anthony Edwards anyone who wants to play for Georgia is a waste of our time

    1. Skooms

      Whew, I passed out twice trying to read your comment. Commas and periods work wonders buddy.

  3. Bigblue7982

    Seems like we’ll never get another top 5 recruit.

    1. StillBP

      yeah never ever in the history of ever. smh

  4. Duuuuuude

    I don’t think Cal recruited him hard. He does not seem like a Calipari type of kid.

  5. ClutchCargo

    If Edwards took in all of that, listened to UGA, watched UK closely, etc. and still came to that conclusion… I don’t get it, but whatever.

  6. Headhurts

    Who ever Cal gets I trust no matter what their ranking is, look at some of the guys we did’nt get but ended up with better fit, no matter what a players ranking is if he does‘ nt buy in to the system it won’t work, In Cal I trust.

    1. RealCatsFan

      Yep, it turns out that some of the kids we missed on were really blessings in disguise. Now don’t get me wrong, Zion would have been a huge get for the program, but a lot of the other “misses” just gave us the opportunity to get a player who was a better fit.

  7. Booher

    That was his kid why would he want to leave his son in Georgia and come to Kentucky

    1. StillBP

      That is his sister’s kid. From a UGA site: Edwards’ prop of choice as he made his announcement at a commitment ceremony at Holy Spirit Prep was his little, bitty nephew, Jace, son of his sister Antoinette. When it came time for the big announcement, Edwards simply unzipped the 4-month-old’s tiny hoodie to reveal a Georgia Bulldogs’ T-shirt underneath.

      Yet another person whom DIDN’T read the entire article.

    I really don’t see a need for complete rundowns on players until they commit. I like knowing who UK is offering but it seems like we learn so much about these kids now that we get disappointed when they commit elsewhere. KSR was writing months ago that UK had no shot with Edwards, and I know he visited and he “considered” UK but KSR hyped it up like UK was the favorite when that was never the case.

    1. MontyCats

      I agree, it feels like were getting smashed on the recruiting trail. It makes me wonder if somethings wrong or theres just an increased coverage of players we never really had a shot at in the first place?

  9. UK Fan In Nashville

    What’s next? A 20-10 season, an 11-seed, and a first round loss in the tourney. Have fun with that Edwards.

    1. RealCatsFan

      He will get doubleteamed and shut down at UGA. No supporting cast to draw attention away from him.

    2. beskag2

      That’s a really good point RealCatsFan, I hadn’t thought about that…but you’re absolutely right.

  10. UK Fan In Nashville

    I wonder if he knows he is not committing to play football there…

    1. runningunnin.454

      Big man on campus, right after the QB, couple of RB’s, and a FG kicker.

  11. No more excuses cal

    What’s next .cal need to win it all this year or resign mitch Can hire any coach that can loose kids to Georgia. Get beat by k state seton hall. For half the money he is paying cal and his staff

    1. runningunnin.454

      Ha ha ha, you’re a comical fool.

    2. RealCatsFan

      Who should we hire, Einstein? Did you get beamed down from the moronosphere?

    3. StillBP

      this account isn’t funny anymore. You keep saying the same stuff. At first it was funny to think you’re this stupid, but now it’s obvious you’re just writing the dumbest crap you can and repeating it over and over. Come up with a new shtick.

    4. Realme

      Agree with BP. It used to be fun to entertain the idea that a real person was this stupid, but it’s just repetitive now, like a weird bot that can’t be turned off. Come up with a new gimmick besides dumbest fan in the state.

    5. henderblue

      Dude has “loosed” his mind…

    6. bigbluebanana

      “So me think, why waste time say lot word, when few word do trick”

    7. No more excuses cal

      Players first

  12. bigblue2284

    Another day another swing and miss.Cal will miss on all the elite talent and bring us some more want to be one and done outside of the top ten talent. I guess technically Whitley is number 9 but he isn’t elite. In fact Cal hasn’t gotten a top ten guy except Montgomery and Whitley the past two years. This incoming class will be a record bad class.

    1. ukbradstith

      A record bad class? We could easily have the number one class when it’s all said and done.

    2. bigblue2284

      A record bad for Cal. Here is a list of his classes and tell me what you notice:

      Cal is trending downward in recruiting, he hasn’t had a stud player since Fox and Monk. Next year will be the third straight year void of an elite player on the court. The fact is he has struggled with elite talent since the platoon season. UK is no longer the it school Duke is.

    3. bigbluebanana

      So other bigblue, you’re bitching because Cal set such a high bar all by himself and he’s not keeping up with his own standards? Number 1 or 2 class every single year he’s been here, I’ll take that all day, every day. My only advice to you and your line is to get used to this horrible time in UK’s history, because Cal will be here until he decides to leave. Most of us wouldn’t have it any other way. Edwards is just another in a long line of kids who want to be the focal point, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But go ask the schools where Fultz, Simmons, Young and the like played at how many banners they’ve hung.

    4. RealCatsFan

      I think when you factor in that Duke is now playing the one-and-done game, and other programs are starting to go after these type players, Cal is still doing a pretty decent job with recruiting. Yeah, last year it was disappointing to lose to Kansas St, but the year before they were literally a last second 3-pointer from going to another FF. I want another championship as much as anyone, but we sure as hell are not going to get one by firing Cal and then hoping that we can lure another top coach on the heels of what he has done. You guys want to throw a couple names out there of really good coaches who are up to the task of winning a championship at UK? Oh, and it would be a little like following Rupp or Pitino after epic runs in UK history. Or would you all prefer to just bitch and complain and wallow in your misery?

  13. truetotheblue

    Man alive what the heck! Cal is one of the best 3 coaches in country if not the best at getting kids to develops in to really doesn’t matter of a kid is consider the 3rd best player or 17th best player coming out of high school it’s all about the fire in them and are they coachable and want to get better and if they have that attitude cal can take them places.look at Tennessee how may give stars are on that great team.I think there highest tank kid was in mid 30’s coming out of high school the rest was in 50’s.but they are coachable kids willing to give it all and the most important part play together for the can have the 5 best kids out of high school and if they all want to be the man and do there on thing they not going very far.just my thought!

  14. shelby

    Edwards is a punk for posting a pic of himself in a UK uni when he knew he was going to UGA. If Todd reclassifies and signs with UK, AND EJ and Nick return—next year gonna be another good one.
