Can You Steal a Kansas Player from Kansas?

perry

John Calipari has produced a number of coups in his time as a college basketball coach. Getting Derrick Rose to make the trip to Memphis, Wall and Cousins to come to Kentucky within moments of arriving on campus and taking Terrence Jones out of the Pacific Northwest were all impressive. However, if Calipari can get Perry Ellis out of Kansas, it might be his biggest accomplishment yet. The state of Kansas produces virtually no Division I talent and thus the idea of a top-notch player coming from the state is bizarre. Add to that the fact that the two in-state programs include one historic power and one of the better recruiters in the country, and the idea of taking him out of state would seem crazy. However, Ellis said this weekend that Kentucky is in his final four with Kansas, Kansas State and Duke, so you don’t want to count him out just yet. And as an added bonus, if Calipari can make it happen we know Larry Vaught and his Droid will be in absolute elation. Here is a video of what he brings to the table.

    look guys the player is very restless, and anxious about his college career. he needs to be stilled by cal so he can focus on the right decision for his future, jeez.

    Guess how many comments there would have been without this misspelling? Probaby 3-5. Matt’s not stupid; this was surely done on purpose, as evidenced by the fact that it still hasn’t been corrected.

    UK fan, a Duke fan, and a Tennessee fan are standing atop a mountain outcrop arguing over who loves their team the most. Finally the Tennessee fan says, “My love for the Vols runs so deep, I will prove it by jumping off this mountain!” As the UK and Duke fan watch, the Tennessee fan hurls himself off to his death with a “Goooo Vooooollllls!” Not wanting to be outdone, the UK fan walks to the edge and says, “There’s no way that Tennessee fan or you loves your team as much as I love my Wildcats, and I’m going to prove it!”…so he pushes the Duke fan off the mountain to his death with a “Go Bog Blue!”

    oh wait. They’ve already been deleted them to remove all evidence of the gaffe! Didn’t Bruce Pearl teach you anything? The cover-up’s always worse than screwing it up to begin with.

    Nice. Most of the first comments that mentioned the fact it said “still” instead of “steal” have been deleted. Come on, KSR. If you’re going to make a mistake, don’t hide behind the power of acting like it never happened by deleting it. WEAK! #wrongonpurpose
