Cal says Harrow “better bring it”


After fishing for hits stirring up Kentucky fans with his best college coaching jobs rankings, Mike DeCourcy plays nice and gives us an article about one of the newest Wildcats, Ryan Harrow. Once you get past the subtle “one-and-done” digs, there are some good quotes from Cal:

“The year off is going to do him good in all ways — physically, maturity,” Calipari told Sporting News. “We’ll be getting a guy stepping in who has played college basketball before and will know how we play.

“I think he’s a terrific player.”

Calipari said one reason he wanted to recruit another point guard at this stage is rooted in the NBA’s collective bargaining discussions. Originally he was convinced the draft age limit would be raised to 20 years.

The biggest fear I have is they’re going to stay at one year,” Calipari said. “If they do that, you and I know I’m losing a bunch of guys. I’d have a kid that’s good, plays bigger than his size, has great skills with the ball and is a point guard.

“Now, if they go to two years, it’s OK. I can play two point guards at one time if I need to.”

Calipari’s first Kentucky team was designed that way, with Wall and Eric Bledsoe sharing the backcourt. Calipari told Harrow he would be challenged at a high level if he were to choose Kentucky.

“I told him: Do you understand what you’re stepping into, the point guards and what they’ve been able to do? You better bring it. That was the conversation I had. I didn’t beg him. You come here, you’ve got to be totally both feet sold with what’s going on.

“I feel very comfortable that he’s in there.”

Now, Ryan, please stop posting twitpics of yourself in black and red. Not so fly.

    Cal has this program rolling so strong he doesn’t even beg for recruits, he tells them how hard they need to work and how it won’t be easy yet they still fight over each other to get here.

    We all love what you KSR writers do for us and the time you spend -seriously.

    But when ya see the same picture more than once in your posts, it takes away from your effort a little. just a suggestion, but may want to keep a historical file of photo’s you use to avoid duplication.

    Personally it doesn’t bother me in the least to see the same pics. I have family pictures on the wall and I don’t put new ones up just because someone came over and seen them once.

    The only thing more stupid than Twitter, is all of the pathetic fools on Twitter tryin to get a teenage kid to respond to their flattery. “Can I get a RT for kissing your ass with some uninspired, ignorant comment?” No wonder these teenage athletes have so mug trouble staying grounded. And what does it say about our fanbase that they beg for the attention of a teenager? Get a life people! And have some self respect.
