She has a cake made.

Now isn’t that precious.

    If Calipari got a cake every time he signed a top 10 player he’d be 300+ pounds.

    Does that break a NCAA rule for talking about unsigned recruits?

    How many top 20 commitments from the 2013 class has Calipari secured? I am watching closely so I do not overlook anyone from his monster 2013 recruiting class…

    Every time a rule is broken (except by us) we should demand the Penn State penalty!

    2) UK fans talking about breaking NCAA Rules? Oh, the irony…

    I’d have to imagine Calipari celebrates with a yawn and a good nights sleep. I guess its okay to make a big deal about your first 8 or 10 in your career, but Cal’s lost count so its no biggie.

    This has to be a violation right??

    1) maybe that explains why he looked like he was pregnant with Jon & Kate plus 8 babies last season.

    will stien, what do you mean uk fans talking about breaking ncaa rules, clint hurt takes recruits to boosters houses and boats, rogers and bridgewater were both in that report this week, so how did they end up at louisville? i mean louisville football, really?

    I’m sure this is being taken to the right people.

    Seriously, though, you’d think they’d know better than to celebrate their good fortune too early after they lost Rivers.

    Also, she should have made waffles.

    11 you’re wasting your time…Will is a Duke homer. He just loves to come here bc no other Duke fans want to talk to him.

    Coach Cal is going to need a bigger cake.

    12) lollllllllllll

    I see the irony Will speaks of. It’s similar to the irony of a Duke fan talking smack to the National Champions when their team finished the season with a loss to Lehigh.

    Not sure I would hate on Billy D and UF right now. He has two top 8 players signed for 2013. All UK and Cal have are the thoughts that 2013 will be a monster class. We’ll see but I have a feeling 2013 isn’t going to be all everyone has hyped it up to.

    Florida won’t be a joke 2013-2014. I mean, UK will be better, but Florida might be able to take 1 of 3 or 4. Just hope it’s not the wrong 1.

    also, ncaa violation….walker and hill haven’t signed loi’s yet. (this is a joke, if that’s not clear)

    Seriously though, she did a good job with the cake.



  29. Duke is a crock
    5:32 pm July 23, 2012 Permalink

    Duke fans got no room to talk. Besides UCLA of the Wooden era, never has one college basketball team been given so many “benefits of the doubt”. Corey Maggette anyone?

    Really ????? I thought that was about the poorest looking Gator I have ever seen. Bet the cake is good. Give the Gator fans their due,,,,,they needed some good news.

    5:52 pm July 23, 2012 Permalink

    Say what you want, but Billy D is always a class act. We can’t say that about other rival schools’ coaches. I wish UF the best as long as they always finish behind us.

    C’mon Mama Donovan! How about you send me the cake for never offering Walker?

    I have no problem with Billy D, good for him. I am glad he will be able to at least be competitive with UK in 2013.

    There are too many players for Calipari to get them all. Five a year will be ok.



  36. Billy D
    6:47 pm July 23, 2012 Permalink

    That damn Calapairi. I remember when 2 of the top 8 was the best in the country now it’s #2 in the SEC. This isn’t fair anymore. It sure is bad when Cals leftovers gets you top 10 players



  37. gog8ors
    7:19 pm July 23, 2012 Permalink

    Billy’s wife, Christine baked the cake herself, she didn’t go out and buy it. The Gators aren’t finished with the 2013 class just yet, along with Walker and Hill, Coach D is planning on signing at least two more players.

    #20 are u gonna recognise whos number 1 right now, chump? and are you gonna recognise when uk beats louisville for the unprecidented 5th time in a row, chump?

    “Isn’t that precious?” Smart Ass Remark by a Smart Ass, I suppose. I take nothing you say seriously, besides recruits probably read your drivel and must think you to be a real douche’. Your sense of humor is antagonistic and crude. No talent required, no class exists. I want good talent across the board in the SEC. Good for Florida.

    Who are we kidding….Cal would celebrate at Orange Leaf and tweet it out to all of us.

    That cake should go to Matt McCall who ran point on both of the Hill and Walker recruitments!

    37. That changes everything. There should be a coach’s wives bake-off.



  44. Duke Sucks
    10:38 pm July 23, 2012 Permalink

    The SEC could very well have 7 of the top 10 players. Not to bad for a football conference. With the additions to the ACC I think it will hurt Duke a UNC who have carried the conference like UK and Flordia have the SEC. The SEC has been down as a whole the last 5 years. Now that we are back up to we’re we belong the SEC could be the strongest from top to bottom.

    Did Mrs Calipari make him a cake when he won his second title. Oh, John only has one? Maybe someday he will be on Billy Ds level.

    Matt I know it hurts. UK has a bright future and a glorious past. (see Rupps rafters) UF only has somewhat of a past. Come see us in a few years. Oh yeah and bring plenty of cake beeeyotch!!!

    # 41,,,,damn you are right. Thats bad when Billy D’s mother can’t even get the Gator right on a cake. Maybe the Gator is trying to moonwalk off the cake.

    I think it’s a little petty to poke fun at Mrs. Donovan for making this cake. C’mon KSR, don’t act like a Louisville site.

    I don’t think these two are signed yet. I know coaches are not allowed to comment on recruits until they are “signed” I guess that does not apply to coaches wives.
