Julius Randle’s iPhone case will make you forget all about Robert Morris

randle-phone
(via @JayJayUSAToday)

Kansas websites, fans, and some recruiting “experts” suggest something happened late in the process that flipped Randle to UK.  If that’s so, please tell all of us here in Kentucky how to overnight custom iPhone cases.

The fact of the matter is Randle knew he would play for Kentucky after he took his official visit back in September and Calipari sat back with his feet propped up over the past two weeks, knowing it was a done deal.

Welcome aboard.

    That is not a case, that is actually stenciled/engraved into the back of the iPhone 5. Awesome!!

    How did he get it blue like that? And I love the old style skinny logo. I like your style Julius.

    Looks like a sticker and both schools are blue, but I do think Randle to UK was decided a while ago.

    OK, BBN, let’s come up with a nickname. He can’t be Uncle Julius–that’s already taken. How about Julius the Kid? Julius Caesar? Suggestions?!

    Looks to be a little scratched so that means its not new. He’s been a Cat for a while. Just like momma, the Shiver was wrong again!

    That pic of Randel’s iPhone case needs to be photoshopped with the pic from Men in Black. (The one where they zap all previous memories)It would make the perfect pic for KSR.

    That phone is big time. Like this kid’s style already.

    Looks like a customized skin cover you order pretty easily. .

    7 it’s not a sticker. In the article, under this pic the caption reads: Julius Randle’s custom-stenciled iPhone. Crap, now I’m arguing about a sticker vs custom phone.

    This season will be worth the aggravation watching the best recruiting class in HISTORY next year. Beatdowns coming for all who oppose the BBN

    8 – I think his personality / play will dictate any nicknames. A little too early at this point. Plus “the Kid” is already taken (MKG) and I’m sure he’s never heard that last one before.

    You can get this done at the mall for about $100 it takes all of 30-45 minutes at the iExpert stand. It is literally just a glass plating replacing the clear one that comes standard on the iphone. Could easily the scratches at the top are probably from breaking the glass and having it replaced once before, it’s really not that special. My guess is that 1,000 people across the state are on their way to the mall to get this done right now.

    Does Marc Maggard still have a site? If so, what did he say would happen? Oh wait, he’s irrelevant now…

    12 why would he get all that crap under the 30 customized on a skin cover? it isn’t a skin cover.

    On April 8 a new national champion will be crowned. On April 9 Kentucky will be ranked number one in the country again.

    KU Fans: “But…but…how about World Wide Wes? Calipari is ruining the college game….he had to have promised Randle something….how about that SOB Drake? He had to be involved somehow…something’s amiss here…no way does Calipari sign this kind of class otherwise.”

    Well, all those people are wrong. He committed to UK over 2 weeks ago. UK and ESPN arranged the press conference and set the date. Timing wasn’t an accident either. Cal knew they’d be on the bubble and if they made NIT they’d need a pick-me-up but wouldn’t schedule anything during the actual NCAA tourney. Also, didn’t want his players to think he was more concerned with recruiting for next year when they needed to buckle down for this year.

    Cal gets it.

    Last time I say it….you all are just blind fools that know ZERO about basketball.. Smarts win games, not streetballers. All this undefeated season talk makes you look like pure fools! What did our talent get us this year? How are the lakers doing with all that talent? How is Wisconsin doing with all those 3 star players this year? Smarts and talent equal championships, but smarts beats athleticism alone every time.

    Who cares about his iPhone. Can he put the ball in the hole? Can he hit a free throw. Can he pass to his teammates. Can he listen to his coach. Can he hit an open jump shot. Can he play defense? Is he tough on the glass? Can he take us to the promise land? That’s all I care about.

    Watching some tapes of Julius, and being a lefty he reminds me a lot of TJ. Julius seems to have a more powerful build already, and you can probably expect to see him get even stronger by the time he makes it to campus. Sounds like the missing piece to the puzzle!

    #26 Yes across the board. Randle reminds me of Wayman Tisdale….. GO CATS!!

    Haha.. UofL boards are MELTING DOWN over UK’s recruiting class for next year — all while they are the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tourney which starts TOMORROW.

    Call me crazy, but last year when we were in their position, I don’t recall giving a crap about their recruiting class. Go North Carolina A&T! Go Cats!

    If Cal don’t get Wiggins we should fire him. After all, what has he done lately?

    You can get cut vinyl at any sign shop pretty cheap. Its not that big of a deal. It takes all of 5 minutes to do that, and definitely costs under 10 bucks. You can even get a home setup for just over $200.

    Jason Jordan has already nicknamed him Hollywood.



  45. Randle Nickname
    11:15 pm March 20, 2013 Permalink

    He’s the most Mashburn like 6’9″ player we’ve seen.

    Solid, and scores and one’s in the heart of the paint sitting on peoples foreheads.

    ‘The’ Dr. J was a Julius. I don’t know if Randle has earned that name yet, but he’s definitely a doctor to the BBN’s hearts ATM.

    From the eraser memory iphone case, to the perfect timing of his announcement (future recruits – take a page out of Randle’s book here).

    He’s Dr. J to me.
