    Good, that is a good spot for him. Should make college BB very interesting next year. At least it wasn’t UNC.

    He’ll regret it



  23. Oh Well
    12:14 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    My least favorite choice for him by far. At least at FSU/UNC we’d get to see 2-3 games against Parker. Like an earlier post said, Kansas just seems second best at everything. He’ll certainly get plenty of star time but it won’t be as entertaining from our end.



  24. Han
    12:14 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Good luck to him, but if he really wanted the title, UK would’ve been a better choice.



  25. what?

    WTH? Unbelievable!

    23) Silver lining? Kansas plays Duke in the Champions Classic this year. If we can’t have him, at least he’ll have a chance to dunk all over the flopping Dukies.

    31) Really makes you wonder if Self isn’t worried about them or if Wiggins just doesn’t realize there’s a chance they’re coming.



  41. no sources
    12:17 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Well, I was wrong. I said I would come back and own it. Here i am. That said, good luck Wiggins. Good luck watching us win it all next year, and Randle being the #1 pick in the draft next year.

    Too much star power at UK. Too much attention. It’s not for everybody.



  47. UK fan
    12:17 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Not to be a typical detractor but it might be best that AW didn’t choose UK, not that he’s not a good kid or anything, but he appears to have an element of indecisiveness and afraid of hurting others’ feelings. To thrive you must be confident in your decisions and not worry about others because you can’t please everyone. Plus the talent already at UK is already overwhelming and I’m not sure how well they would group up.

    Kansas makes sense. He can be more of a standout and be on a team with legitimate title hopes.

    His dad is going to be on the coaching staff there, They have been talking about it for weeks on the Kansas board. It was obvious.

    Surprising, but what the heck.

    Bill Self has to win a recruiting battle once in a while.



  61. Bobbaloo
    12:19 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Well, I was hoping we could pad our slim all time wins lead over Kansas next season. That won’t happen because no team in the Big 12 can beat Kansas now.



  62. kybigblue
    12:19 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Since his brother plays just over two hours away at Wichita St. I never disounted Kansas. It, also, makes it easier for his parents to watch them play. I wish him the best. We will be okay with Young a top 10 recruit and Poytress at SF.



  63. tn

    No really.
    I think UK is better off with out him.
    I think Wiggins is better off this way also.

    I just was getting a bad vib that we’d have some issues if he came.

    Still the best recruiting class ever in College basketball.

    2014 nation title = UK.

    12:22 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Here we go. Everyone saying if he wants a title UK was only choice. Based on what? We will have a team of 18-20 year old young men, most of whom have never played this level of competition. We saw how it worked last year, remember losing in NIT. I like the potential of this years team but lets all wait till February before we know how good this group can be. Last years team played their best game of the year in game 2 and got much worse as the season went on. We have no experience back to speak of. Like I said before I was sick of hearing Wiggins name. We are UK. This school was great long before Wiggins was born and will be great long after he is gone from this earth. UK is bigger than any recruit.

    The first and last time I EVER listen to this radio program. What a load of crap. A bunch of lying douchebags. They promised to be back live at 12:15 for the announcement. Instead they have had commercials for the last 15 F*CKING MINUTES! It is now 12:25 and still nothing. A bunch of liars. No other way to spin it. Shameful.

    Well, Kansas has a pretty good darn class down with Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Wayne Seldon, Conner Frankamp, and, Brannen Greene. Still not even close to what UK has though. Those are the number 1, 6, 14, 46, and 47 ranked recruits in the nation. We still have the number 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 25 ranked recruits in the ESPN 100.

    He’d been a great addition to this UK class, but our incoming freshmen are awesome; and we got the recruit I wanted most (a football player – not a basketball player). Great week and also football recruiting season that will only get better.

    I was hoping if it wasn’t us it would be FSU and my next choice was Kansas. Think UNC would have been a bigger threat with him than KU. Kansas is going to be good…really good, but we are going to be good and very very deep. Think Young and Poythress will do a great job at the 3. Definitely would have loved to have Wiggins though.

    To be honest what team were we not going to beat with James Young/Poythress at the 3 that suddenly becomes beatable with Wiggins. We’ve got an embarrassment of talent and our bench would beat Knight’s group that made it to the Final Four 7 times out of 10.

    I understand the comparisons to Shabazz and CJ Leslie. Top recruits that chose the road less traveled and then disappeared for 9 months. A better comparison is Harrison Barnes. The hype was almost equal to this Wiggins hype. Luckily for UK, Barnes had a less-than-stellar career at UNC.

    12:26 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Coming from a die hard UK fan, this is honestly the best pick he could have made. We can be selfish and say that it’s not but it is. He is the type of rare talent that it didn’t matter where he went in terms of who would better prepare him for the NBA (obviously Cal and the Cats). He didn’t go to a school (UK) where he possibly wouldn’t be the “star” game in and game out, he didn’t go to a school where he would be living in someone else’s shadow in terms of leaving his mark (UNC-Jordan) and he didn’t go to a school where he had the least likely chance to win as many games. He went to a school where he will win, be able to leave his mark, and wait his time until being drafted #1 next year. With him or without him we are getting #9, so I look at it as his loss not ours, but wish him the best of luck.

    Wiggins didn’t have chemistry on the court with anyone. He’ll contine that trend @ Kansas and continue to be the island that he is.

    Instead of learning to break this habit in college by playing with the best talent possible he’ll have to hold a pro team back for a few seasons in order to be a team player. And you never know, sometimes when players stay that way for too long they can’t reverse it and become a Carmelo Anthony – being good, but never being a great.

    UK dealt with that memtality this past season.

    According to Kansas media, the difference was proximity to his brother. When his brother tweeted a month ago,”he is going to shock the world” this is what he meant. This is also why AW asked Kansas to recruit him last year. It will be easier for his parents to support both their sons when they are in the same state. This all makes perfect sense to me.

    Where did the rest of their championships go? Surely they can’t have just 3, right? Oh, they do have only 3? Oh, well then, what a truly elite program…

    Wiggins addition to Kansas will make them a really solid team, but, I see the Cats destroying them in the tournament, all of us that patiently anticipated his decision will have our revenge. I wish him the best and a long career, but I hope this dude gets banged on by Randle to lose the title game, yea, I think that would suffice. I agree with many on here, I don’t hate the kid, I just wanna beat Jayhawks into pieces next year. The Harrison Twins are gonna go ham on everybody, this class is much better than last years. Oh yea, everyone go easy on Matt and the guys, Matt was also highly pissed about the long commercial break and he let it be known. 2014=REVENGE.

    This is the absolute best thing that could have happened to UK. We don’t need another player that is all about themselves and doesn’t focus on their team. This guy was all about himself from the start. I’ll take a good team that meshs as brothers over one guy that thinks hes all that anyday. This group of guys are going to show what teamwork is all about. Gonna be a great group of guys, looking forward to it. GO BIG BLUE.

    C’mon…he’s gonna suck now just because he chose KU? Don’t get me wrong, I frigging hate Bill Self and Kansas but Wiggins is still going to be really good. But we are going to be a great team next year and all you trolls commenting about the NIT this year and how all that talent next season will take us back to the NIT…please. That team next year is still going to beat some teams down.

    It’s fine that he goes somewhere else. Just makes #9 that much sweeter. I’m personally glad this recruitment is over even though we didn’t get him. Harrison to randle says bring it.

    I genuinely think he made the worst possible choice. If he wanted to win a title, he had a better shot with the pieces in place at either Carolina or here. You don’t win a title after losing 5 starters, it just doesn’t happen, even with some returning talent and a guy like Wiggins. If he wanted to go rogue and do it mainly on his own, FSU was probably a better choice. Oh well. Best of luck to him, and I hope he enjoys watching the Cats cut down the nets next season from Lawrence after their usual Sweet 16 exit as a 1 seed.

    Its over….now its time to take care of our team and get them ready to perform and reach their potential. Last year was an embarrasment, any way that you cut it…. and there’s no guarentee that all of these high school stars are going to perform at the next level. That includes EVERYONE’S incoming freshman.

    You guys are funny, saying he’s the next Xavier Henry or Josh Selby, claiming that he’ll be “just another loser” by picking somewhere else. You DO realize that you guys were predicting back-to-back championships, undefeated seasons, etc – with LAST year’s #1 class, right? It’s funny how you don’t let anything like a crushing dose of reality stymie your childlike sense of entitlement and infallibility.

    he will be a flash in the pan at Kansas or anywhere else he may go! It’s all about him and he gives a shit less about anyone but himself! He would not have played a day in college if he did not have too! Good luck to him and his ego!

    Ah, the Noel excuse. The one that falls flat once you realize UK was already tanking and on the bubble when Noel got hurt. The one that falls flat once you realize that Noel wasn’t the only supposed NBA-ready one-and-doner on the roster. Anyone who gives out the Noel excuse is the freaking moron, not me.

    It will be fun to see Wiggins vs. Jabari Parker when KU plays Duke in the Champions Classic in Game 2 for each team.

    I suppose every fan base has it’s share of goofballs, so that would explain a lot of these silly comments. To say Kansas is the worst of the 4 choices means you really aren’t paying much attention to what’s going on in college basketball. Self is an excellent coach and Wiggins will get a HUGE benefit from the Kansas strength and conditioning program that is light years ahead of what every other college team has to offer. Add in that KU has the toughest non-con schedule of his 4 finalists, the best in-game atmosphere of the 4 finalists and that his brother will be 2 hours away and the benefits are pretty clear.

    Doubt KU all you want, they will be a serious contender next year.

    Funny to see all you clowns fawning all over him for months now only to find out he doesn’t care. He’ll have a decent season. They won’t make past the Sweet 16 and he’ll get to watch us win another Championship and wish he was a part of it.

    I predicted Kansas after the McD AA game. Even put on a thread here the day after the game. Anybody at the game that could see the bench should agree it was obvious that Selden and Wiggins were a good match. Wiggins got along fine with the two future Cats, but he was leaning Kansas back then. If we didn’t have 6 McD AA, Kansas recruiting class would be big news with top forward, top center, and Selden.

    Took pics at the McD AA game, and I swear Selden was weasling in on every one when Wiggins was standing beside Dakari or Randell. If KSR wants one, hit me up, you’ve got my e-mail. I may still have one on my phone.

    Kentucky Fans Prove Classless in Attacking Andrew Wiggins, and Confused in Responding

    Written on May 14, 2013 by kentsterling

    56 Comments – Leave a comment!

    by Kent Sterling

    They are the most predictable fans in all of sports, and have the least class. The University of Kentucky has many reasons to feel shame, but the behavior of their fans toward a kid who did nothing but choose to attend Kansas today shows why teenage basketball players who decide to attend UK make a massive mistake.

    A sampling of tweets to top ranked recruit Andrew Wiggins account are below, courtesy of kentuckysportsradio.com:

    tweet5They outed these idiots as not being representative of Kentucky fans, who refer to themselves as Big Blue Nation. Any group of fans who are compelled to refer to themselves as a “nation” are endemic of the dingbats whose self-image is way too closely tied to the success or failure of teenagers playing college.

    Kentucky fans are the worst of them, but certainly not the only pack of ornery sycophants who follow a college basketball or football program. The loon who poisoned the two iconic oak trees at Toomer’s Corner where fans gathered for generations after Auburn football games comes to mind, but as a group Kentucky fans are rabid — and not in a good way.

    tweet6Threatening the lives of kids who choose to study and play elsewhere is so far outside the parameters of decent behavior that they border of the mob mentality that causes riots.

    I also recall the petulant and boorish behavior Illinois fans and coach Bruce Weber showed Eric Gordon during his year at Indiana after backing off his verbal commitment to the Illini once Mike Davis was fired at Indiana. It was a heinous example of how unchecked self-immersion can turn good people into idiots.

    tweet31Andrew Wiggins is going to Kansas, and reasonable people could care less. There are fewer and fewer reasonable people among Kentucky fans. That’s what the school gets for doing a deal with the devil and welcoming a coach who is paid only to win. Coaches should be hired for their ability to do a lot of different things — teach, lead, mentor, insist on academic excellence, and serve as the public face of the university. They are fired for not winning.

    Oddly, here are an additional comment or two to the Kentucky Sports Radio post that chastised the author of the tweets:

    tweet2NotFirst Says:

    “These idiots need to die in a fire.”

    Hoptownsbeast Says:

    [email protected]#% these guys! We still BBN! Good luck Wiggins! Go Cats, Go Wiggins!”

    Otis Says:

    “UK has 10,000,000 fans with we’ll say 5% that are complete idiots; or 500,000 fans UL has 500,000 fans but only 100,000 of those fans are complete idiots. Which is better?”

    tweet1Otis Says:

    Wiggins did to UK what Trae Golden did to Jenny Wright

    There are nearly 100 comments, and the conversation is amusing if not enlightening. Some are pleased that the five tweet authors have been outed. Others are disappointed they are getting publicity. Some belief that most of the idiots are from other schools. Many are exceptionally critical of people in Louisville, and others are critical of the anti-Louisville crowd.

    The Kentucky fanbase — even those who are trying to congratulate Wiggins are becoming more and more baffled by the source of their anger. Are they upset because Wiggins opted to go to Kansas, at the morons who blasted Wiggins, the people who published the offending tweets, those who are angry, everyone who lives in Louisville, or a combination of the five subsets.

    Reading kentuckysportsradio.com comments is like watching Curly Howard take the SAT. You can see the steam rise from their skulls, and finally their heads are going to explode.

    By the way, congratulations to Wiggins for making a tough decision.
