Harrison Twins announcement LIVE THREAD

Unfortunately, Matt and Drew are en route to West Virginia, so there will be no live blog this evening. However, we encourage you to use this thread to discuss the Harrison Twins’ announcement, which will air on ESPNU. You can also view the announcement live on WatchESPN.com if your cable provider says so.

We got this.

    #BBN! Harrison Twins smart to go to UK, or we just move on and reload…

    I need to know whether I am justifying my drinking to celebrating, or to disappointment.

    I really cannot fathom them going to Maryland of all places? Why on Earth would they? Duke, NC, or even NCstate would be better than the Turtles. What could being a Turtle do for ones future?

    Reload? With what? Cal has not recruited another guard for 2013.

    #4. Seriously? You are doubting the ability of Calipari to recruit? Have you heard of the possibilities of the other 1 and 2 position players he is recruiting?

    So are they announcing at 5? Or will it be more like 530? I get off work at 5, and cant make it home by 530, so i guess I’m outta luck. I ain’t sticking around here till 530.
