Aaron Harrison says “Kentucky” is nickname enough

High School Basketball: McDonald's All American Games
Courtesy of McDonald’s…we’re lovin’ it.

Excuse Aaron Harrison if he scoffs at the nicknames being doled out to UK’s incoming freshmen class. While “The Magnicificent Seven,” “The Unbeatables,” etc. may roll off the tongue, but he’s got something even better:

We’re Kentucky, that’s all we are. We don’t need any nicknames. We’re just going to go out there and prove that we’re the best. We like all of it (pressure). Great players thrive in great moments. Just wait and see.”

They’re making it really hard for me to pick a favorite.

    The Magnificent Seven doesn’t even make sense unless we land Wiggins anyways. Sorry, Derek 🙁

    And some of you said that the three sign wasn’t just a Kentucky thing. Second photo I’ve seen with them all throwing it up.

    We’ve done a complete 180 in mentality. I’m already convinced that we will be hanging 9 easily next season. These freshmen have the biggest set of confidence I’ve ever seen. They talk like seniors in college.

    Those uniforms are so bad they “almost” make the tight, ultra shorts from the 70’s look good! LOL

    The personality is just oozing from these players. We are going to have an absolute BLAST watching them next year! Go Cats!

    In about 40 minutes, you gonna see why Ryan & Archie left. And, why poythress will not start. If wiggins comes, he should probably transfer. Hawkins…..no

    Would you rather have Wiggins sign with the Cats, or have Nerlens come back for another season?

    BBN loves the Harrisons. Cal will never have to scream this coming year with these guys on the team!

    #8 … maybe they are hinting at Wiggins committing to UK on the “3”rd of April.

    @31, Seriously? I have to admit, Ive grown accustomed to being able to hear Cal’s yelling crystal clear through my surround sound.

    Granted, I think its probably safe to say that he won’t have to yell as much at the twin combo as he did Harrow/Goodwin. But then again, thats not really saying much.

    those look like terrible UL uniforms

    those uniforms are just absolutely atrocious.

    What is wrong with Addidas? Anyone that has anything to do with this baby t-shirt fake camo crap should be fired. Send them to Harlan County.

    Cal should not have to coach UK to give effort, and “playing with the will to win” next year.
