Kennedy Meeks guarantees UNC will beat UK next season

kennedy-meeks
Courtesy of McDonald’s, Meeks’ favorite part about being an All-American

North Carolina commit Kennedy Meeks is a little tired of all of this 40-0 talk from the future Kentucky players at the McDonald’s All-American festivities. Meeks, a four-star center whose listed weight of 285 is incredibly kind, said that one team will stand in the way of Kentucky’s dreams of going undefeated: his Tarheels.

“Well, the best [Kentucky] will be able to do is 39-1.”

Aww, it’s been a while since we’ve had a UNC player trash talk with us. See you in December, Kennedy.

    Maybe we’ll see him in December, I’m not sure he’ll fit through the Dean Dome doors

    UK should hand out double bacon cheeseburger fatheads for that game.

    Will he be crossing half-court while our guys are throwing down dunks?

    So he’s saying that UNC will beat UK at the dean dome, but won’t get to the final four. Not Smart Meeks.

    I like his bravado. Reminds me of Behanan right before we beat them twice last year. He’s a kid with confidence. Fun. That being said, it’s only been a few weeks and the 40-0 talk is actually getting a little stressful now. That’s a lot of pressure for these guys. I was spouting that talk as much as anyone, but now I wish we could kinda surprise people with how good we are, but there’s no way that happens next season. We all expect domination, and I hope we get it…but we’ll have so much time to think about it and so will the kids. Anyway…no way UNC pulls it off anyway. They might not even come within 25…

    Somebody will most likely beat us next year but it won’t be UNC. Look at their returnees and class coming in. Pretty weak.

    11) remember 2010 in the Dean Dome? I think 3 starters were fouled out at the 4 minute mark. And the other 2 had 4. Never say never. I mean, Doug Shows could show up to officiate.



  17. MemphisCat
    4:45 pm April 2, 2013 Permalink

    The only thing Meeks can guarantee is that his weight is not 285lbs. The only reason he threw Wiggins a oop yesterday is that he can’t dunk it himself.



  18. Jackson Purchase
    4:46 pm April 2, 2013 Permalink

    @11 They have Hairston, Bulluck, McAdoo coming back. So wouldn’t say they are that weak, should be a good game.

    Sorry, but I don’t like to jaw about 40-0 either. Makes us look arrogant, unrealistic, and sets us up for failure. It’s ok to say your GOAL is 40-0, but to say you’re definitely going 40-0 is a stretch and it makes me nervous.

    What is all this crap about going 40-0? Lets 1st win enough games to get into the NCAA. 2nd win more games to earn a high seed. Then focus on wining the last 6 games we play. I will take 35-5 33-7 if means winning a championship.

    Id take 39-1 with a December loss at UNC, that means we would have finished the season by hanging banner number 9

    Kennedy is just upset because when he found out he was invited to the McDonald’s game, he thought they were actually going to be taking a trip to McDonald’s.

    So by his talk: does UNC lose to UK in the regular season and win in the tourney or UNC win in the regular season and lose in the tourney.
    Based on the to get to 39 wins equation, UNC wins in the regular season but loses in the tourney.

    This is so confusing.

    CSI experts agree: UNC will get their Asses kicked by UK next season.

    What’s he suppose to say? “Yes, as a matter of fact they will beat us and roll on to a 40-0 season.” He’s wrong, but cut him a break

    What if Wiggins goes to UNC, then that is a great game. Meeks is one of his best friends too. He might know something we don’t know.

    I still think AW to UK. He would be dumb to go to UNC see Harrison Barnes. #1 recruit and ended up being a 2 year player. Mcadooo top 10 still there also

Only thing any of yall know is what you read on a damn scouting website. Big Blue Nation AKA Big Bandwagon Nation. With Wiggins, UNC has the best squad in the nation next year.
