An Evening With KSR and Dari Nowkhah

We’ve talked about it, written about it, tweeted about it, read about it, Instagrammed it, and dreamed about it — and now it is finally here. Today is the spring 2012 edition of National Signing Day and your boy Dari Nowkhah will be leading us through the festivities later on tonight. The ESPNU television special airs at 7:30 ET, in case you somehow forgot.

But if you’re looking to skip all the fluff and time-fillers during the Signing Day Special, Evan Daniels said this morning that Shabazz Muhammad is expected to announce at 7:45 ET and Nerlens Noel will follow an hour later at 8:45 ET. An interview with Calipari will be in there somewhere.

Also, KSR will be live blogging the whole thing tonight so stop by and join us. A group discussion will hopefully ease those nerves.

We’re all in this together.

    I’m with #2, I don’t have a good feeling about either one of these guys. Nerlens would be compared to AD and Shabazz will be compared to Wall and some of the other guards Cal has had in the past. Don’t think either guys wants this to happen. I’ll keep hoping though. Go Cats!!!!

    #4…what?? Did AD worry about being compared to Cousins? Did Wall worry about being compared to Rose or Evans? Did Knight worry about being compared to Wall? Did Teague worry about comparisons to Wall/Knight? For that matter, did Bledsoe worry about coming to UK with Wall? I could go on forever. The truth is if a kid has the skills, and the swagger, then he is not going to worry about who is on the roster now, or who was on the roster in the past. He thinks he is going to make his own history. Noel and Shabazz may indeed go elsewhere, but quit worrying about “comparisons”. Its baloney.

    Either we are getting put on probation and or Cal is leaving for the NBA or other teams have starting paying better than we do!

    It was a nice three year run though. Can’t have the top class every year!

    I say this every time a top recruit is set to announce but it always bears repeating. Any kid who has the chance to come to Kentucky and chooses not to makes me wonder about either their intelligence, maturity, or character.

    If they think they are so good that they have nothing to gain from a year under Coach Cal on the biggest stage in basketball, then good luck to them. Not everyone has what it takes to be a Wildcat.

    Also, if a player is concerned about not getting enough shots or playing time and how that will effect their draft status, then they are either lacking confidence or trying to hide flaws in their game.

    GYERO = Richard. They are happy they’re getting Rozier. But sometime around December they will begin to talk about his lack of skill, Ricky will put him down in press conferences, and Vanetti’s head will explode while talking about him on the radio.

    10- if someone picks duke or unc or michst over us that doesn’t automatically equate to something wrong with their intelligence or character.
    UK isnt for everyone. why be a dick?
