Behind the Scenes: The Harrison Twins’ Announcement

Remember that time the Harrison twins announced they were going to Kentucky?  That was pretty sweet, right?  But if 30 seconds of announcement was pretty good, how great would 17+ minutes of behind-the-scenes footage be?  Well that’s exactly what High School Hopefuls has provided for us.

Highlights include their down-to-earth parents, who legitimately have pretty great grammar by the way, to some guy at the end saying that their announcement “wasn’t one commit, it was two. At the same time. Like the song says.”

I don’t know what song he’s talking about, but I know I’m on board.  But check out the above video and get excited for the Harrisons all over again.

Six months until Big Blue Madness.

    Probably want to take the comment about the grammar down. It doesn’t bother me at all cause I know you were just joking, but someone being way too sensitive will call you racist.

    I’m a high and mighty sports blogger on KSR!! I determine whose grammar is good, bad, and “pretty great.” I’m sorry not everyone on this planet has had the opportunities you’ve had to learn proper grammar.. Truly insensitive.

    Wow, Corey, that “legitimately” comment is WAY out of line. Joking or not.

    And, as I said yesterday on another thread, this “all access” stuff bothers me. It got us off to such a great start last year. These are 18 and 19 year old kids, not rock stars or NBA players yet.

    The only way you can get anyone to ever comment on your crap is if it’s truly shit. I seriously think your terrible posts are on purpose because you know it will drum up a lot of comments. That being said, you’re a racist POS. I would love to see what the twins and their parents think of that comment.

    Yeah that comment needs to go. It doesn’t offend me and I’m sure corey meant nothing by it but there’s no reason for it to be on the site.

    Hey everybody, try calming down. I was referring to the sentence where he says that a dirty room “is something with with I can deal.” Who goes out of their way to make sure they don’t end sentences in a preposition? I refuse to take it down, or change it. Any inferences you make, racial or otherwise, are your own, and if you view it that way, you should honestly be ashamed of yourself.

    Ahhh…the ol’ backhanded compliment served with tinge of racism. I love KSR but this comment is way out of line. I wonder if the writer of the post would be so surprised if Wiltjer or Polson’s parents “legitimately have pretty great grammar.” Just awful and way below KSR’s standards.

    How much $ will the “Twins” see from all of these ‘Keep Calm’ t-shirts being sold? Not a penny. For a site that seems more progressive as of late for benefits/secruity/stipends or whatever you want to call it for student althletes, then turning around and advertising those shirts…now THAT is what I find offensive.

    Knowing Corey’s way of writing I watched the video (before I read the comments) and paid extra attention to the parents to see what made him include that comment. After watching it, how would you expect anybody to know thats what the comment was referrencing? At best I would say it was a failed joke but I thought Coreys comment twlking down to the commenters was much worse than the original post. Corey in the future please come down from your high horse and mingle with us normal fans.
