Alex Poythress Gets it Done at Wendy’s

The very first recruiting interview I ever did was with Micah Johnson, who had to take a break from a shift working at Hardee’s in order to talk to me. I thought of the KSR podcast crew waiting on Micah to finish his orders today when I saw on Twitter this picture of future Cat Alex Poythress at his job at Wendy’s. Any time some opposing team fan says nonsense about World Wide Wes or other Cal allegations, show them this picture of a kid working a part-time job before he comes to the greatest college basketball program in the country. Tall, humble and about to be a star…fans are going to like Alex Poythress.

    IMO, everybody should have to work fast food for a stint.

    It’s like social boot camp at half the pay.

    Does this make him ineligible to be a McDonald’s All-American?

    Poythress is Terence Jones with a natural attitude. Not the fake one Jones gives us.

    Guys, knowing the power of the BIG BLUE NATION on voting polls, I thought that I would try this. My army buddy that I served with overseas has a daughter. I am her godfather. They live in Worcester, Massachusetts. She is trying for some spot on a TV program there. I would appreciate anyone who would take the time to vote for her. Her name is Kayla Daly. You can just copy the link and place your vote. Thanks in advance for anyone who would take the time to do this. GO BIG BLUE.http://www.facebook.com/questions/174199872680703/

    Thanks to everyone who has voted so far. She is now in second place.

    Indiana University is the greatest college basketball program in the country. Our fans actually cheer, unlike those at coRUPPt.

    He can’t be a McDonalds All-American but he has an inside track to be named a Wendy’s Highschool Heismann…if he played any Football.

    27, I am a Kentucky fan and HATE IUsedtobe largely due to the fact that they think everybody cheats but them!
    It’s like when other fans would call Rupp a racist, I always say so Rupp was a racist and still has four national titles! It’s like the dog that catches the car.
    It’s crazy to try to defend Kentucky against the endless accusations of cheating, being racist, etc…
    Ok, you say we cheat. The Ncaa is still going to hand us that National Title and everyone is going to have to live with it!

    #5- “Fake attitude”? Are you a Shrink or what? Perhaps just negative. Let’s take a positive article about a recruit and turn it into a slam against a current player. Well-played…
