University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

And another one…

James Young, the No. 5 overall player in ESPN’s Top 100, just gave his verbal commitment to play at Kentucky. John Calipari has now reeled in 60% of the ESPN’s top five players for the class of 2013.

Young said, “Kentucky has always been my dream school.”

    Recruiting has become boring because we never lose one which is great. I just don’t worry or fret about who will be playing at UK.

    It must really be sad to be as pathetic as you are.

    Jealousy is such a bad trait.

    Just because you:

    1.)Are a virgin
    2.)Weigh 425 pounds
    3.)Have never seen a naked woman except your momma
    4.)Never finished your GED
    5.)Have a 2 inch johnson

    Randle and Wiggins will finish out the class. With the 3 already committed plus the handfull coming back just mail us 3 in a row. Still think we would be better if Wiggins stays in HS for 1 more year. If we can get Randle that will be pleanty for ’13. Will take him when ever he wants to come though.

    How funny to read all these UofL losers on here….you know this is killing them. There program sucks and UK rocks!! Had he gone to UofL instead, he wouldn’t have played until his sophomore season…then injury…then Pitino would kick him off the team to make room for a new recruit.

    Cal by the numbers:
    1 – National Championship,
    2 – straight FFs,
    4 – straight # 1 recruiting classes,
    15 – number of first round draft picks,
    $1,000,000 – amount he pays his players
    0 – people smart enough to CATCH HIM cheating!!!!!!!!

    45. He doesn’t need to cheat. Your first four bullet points speak for themselves, plus the fan base and nice dorm and other little things. Especially your fourth bullet point.

    Never once has anyone come out and proven he pays his players. Camby hired his own agent and was even reported by Cal. Rose’s issue had to do with academics. It is a simple matter of waving something shiny in front of recruits’ faces. And it works. Sorry UL has 26 years of rust.

    This season is Fifteeno’s last chance to beat UK. I bet he cracks under such high expectations. He’ll blow after a couple of road losses. If the Cats beat him in Yum, watch out.

    I really love this kids game… He reminds me of a cross between DeAndre Liggins and Doron Lamb… Has the dead eye shooter ability and floater that Lamb had, and has the superior size and length DeAndre had but is more athletic than both. His game is just soo smooth.

    Also from what I’m following out here in LA it sounds like Lee and Gordon are more than likely be a package deal and apparently UK is high on Aaron Gordon’s list… higher than many expected. Heres my thing. Say Cal gets Aaron Gordon, Andrew Wiggins, Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison… talk about some confusing practices lol.

    Cal: Andrew Come here!
    Both Andrew’s: Which one coach?
    Cal: The Canadian
    Andrew Wiggins: What’d you want?

    lol

    This is going to get interesting… very interesting…

    Committed:

    PG: Harrison
    SG: Harrison,Young
    Wing: Willis

    Prospects:

    Randle
    Lee
    Gordon
    Wiggins

    I think if Lee was to pull the trigger so does Aaron Gordon and that I think Chases Wiggins and possibly Randle off. You are looking at Harrison, Harrison, Young, Lee, Gordon, Willis…. I like that class but if they hold off on Gordon, and just land Lee i think they can land both Randle and Wiggins… but if Gordon committs as well as Lee I just dont see Randle AND Wiggins coming too. I may be wrong but who knows… Now it would be AMAZING if we somehow got Harrison, Harrison, Young, Lee, Gordon, Randle, Wiggins, Willis but that isnt happening. You also got a player out there in Noah Vonleh. I think this might force Randle into committing sooner to ensure a spot. It is just going to be interesting to see how this plays out. If Wiggins doesnt reclassify then that changes the dynamic a ton as well. A lot of talent is looking at UK and I just wonder when it all settles who is in and who is out… Nice problem to have though! GO CATS!

    11:39 pm October 11, 2012 Permalink

    Morons they are not going to get 6 top tens. Guys that good don’t want to have to risk not being a starter. Most likely scenario to me is that they get Randle and one other top 10 or they get Lee and Gordon but not Randle. Wiggins shouldn’t be in the discussion unless he reclassifies.



  62. Duke Sucks
    3:01 am October 12, 2012 Permalink

    #61 your right and wrong. I agree no way Gordon and Randle both come. We will get one or the other not both. Lee I have no idea what he will do or if he affects anyone else or not.
    Your wrong about not getting them because of PT. Today Young kinda shot that down he has signed on will Harrison already here. Plus I might be totally of base here. But Goodwin hasn’t played a minute yet and everyone is assuming he’s gone after this year. He may very well go. I’m sure he will if he can,but he may not have a great season. He very well might not be a first rounder and return fos anther year. We have been spoiled a little. The NBA wanting them after a year is the exception not the norm.
