While some of you are performing the old rituals of weeping and gnashing of the teeth, the H-L’s Jerry Tipton got a few comments from Jodie:
“It was a very tough decision,” Meeks said. “I know coach Calipari is a great coach. I’m confidant Kentucky will still do well but in the long run. I had to do what’s best for me after three years.”
Of his three years at UK, Meeks said, “I accomplished a lot.
“It was kind of a roller coaster; a really good freshman year; sophomore year was frustrating because I was injured. The junior year, I just focused on getting healthy and getting in shape. It ended up being one of the best years in Kentucky history.”
Overall, he called the period, “some of the best times of my life.”
Of course, when Jodie says, ‘one of the best years in Kentucky history’, he means he had one of the best individual season-long performances in Kentucky history. Its very, very sad that Jodie’s efforts was not rewarded properly in the wins column. Of course, its hard to win when you’re telling your best shooter to stop being selfish.
