    I hope the RV guy takes the day off work tomorrow and heads to West Virginia tomorrow to park the Big Blue RV in the school’s parking lot! Come on Wiggins! UK is the only school you can take a ride in the Big Blue Canoe with Ryan Lemond!

    So glad Barker picked UK! I did ask Alan Cutler if any SC TV stations were actually there and he said no, but then again this is KSR. Fakes are optional lol.

    I wonder with Wiggins tomorrow will have a magic hat will just draw the schools out of the hat? Flip a coin? Does he even really know?

    Saul S – I hope my grammar is okay for you today.

    Ryan is a diva. But let me say this, I’ve noticed everytime the “media” do a poll, and we are involved, most the time they are wrong. Look at Randle, Barker…. I noticed the most of them picked FSU and 4 picked UK, but the 4 were associated with UK Sports, so I would expect them to pick UK. If he does NOT chose UK, I would want him to pick FSU because I would NOT see them as a threat, UNC & Kansas would be a threat.

    In 2010, Bill Murray walked in a bar with RZA and GZA of Wu Tang and started bartending. No matter what drink was ordered by a customer, he gave them tequila shots. #FactsAndChicks

    Do you think Wiggins is doing a private press conference for the same reason Barker had an open press conference? Wiggins Knows he’ll get boos if he does not go to Kentucky because It’s so close to Lexington there would be tons of Kentucky fans there.

    Wiggins may end up at FSU where Hamilton will take them to the tournament and promptly lose in the first round to South Carolina State A.T at Pewtersburg. He can recruit, but can’t coach his way out of a wet paper bag.

    10:19 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    I can agree with that too Matt. I LOVE UK, I BLEED BLUE, but our fans can act like a LITTLE BABY sometimes and start tweeting the kids and giving their 2 cents like ANYONE cares and it makes us ALL LOOK BAD. That is the 1 thing over my life that has ALMOST drawn me away from routing for UK anymore, but I can’t change my blood type, I just bleed blue. It will never change, but I HOPE noone does this, but you know someone will.

  39. Matt
    10:21 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    Matt, couldn’t that person have meant IF Wiggins doesn’t pick us?



  40. UKAllTheWay
    10:21 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    My guess is that Wiggins not opening it to media or public means he’s not selecting UK. Also, his coach mentioned on the show a while back, he was waiting until the end of the school year to avoid the awkwardness of seeing his friend that’s going to FSU. So maybe not FSU. That leaves two schools, KU and UNC. I don’t even think it’s 50/50 with those two. UNC gives him the better chance to win a title or at least compete for one and surrounds himself with a better level of talent. I REALLY dislike both UNC and KU, but that’s unfortunately how it looks to me.



  41. RUPPS_rhetoric

    If he picks another school I sure hope its FSU… Have you heard anything about what the other commits think about AW?

  47. loyal listener
    10:24 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    Smitty, I will lose a little respect for AW if he chooses FSU (although best pick for us other than UK) because he has been quoted several times as saying I want to win a championship and play with the best players.

    How realistic is that at FSU?

    10:25 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    Please, not a bunch of calls saying we don’t want him. We are class, wish the young man good luck. Once he picks for sure, then you can call in and talk about his decision, but it is his decision. Agree or not, it is his life. Go Big Blue!

    It would be nice to get Wiggins, but I’m not going to waste one second being depressed if he picks another school. We already have absolute ballers coming and we’ll be awesome with or without him. Regardless, he is a terrible outside shooter and until that improves I don’t see him being such a dominating presence next season.

    I just don’t get the Wiggins to FSU talk. Why why why would he go there. That actually makes less sense then us, UNC, or KU. Players of that caliber just don’t go to FSU. I know his parents went there and all that- but really FSU?? I just don’t see it. My heart and head tell me otherwise.



  61. Matt Jones Logic
    10:28 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    Do people really believe that after keeping things so quiet this whole recruitment, that Wiggins would run to tell people of his decision a day before he is set to announce? My goodness. Shame on Matt. Sometimes it seems like he TRIES to get everyone to freak out.

    Seems to me if that he wants to be surrounded by other all star caliber players so he doesn’t have to be “the guy,” FSU would be last, Kentucky first, and UNC second. That said, I don’t think he’s coming to UK.

Also my best friend and I got a scholarship offers at the same school and neither of us went even though the coach was close to both of us.

    #75, Paul has been wrong lots of times but never called out on it. Certain we were getting Xavier and Shabazz, and tried convincing everyone we weren’t getting Randle although it was obvious to any1 who followed the recruitment and actually read between the lines. He’s gone silent since last week and I think it’s because last time he told everyone to “giddy up” he made an arse of himself.

    Matt, Tyler T, Cory, who ever……. please please today and again tomorrow morning post proper fan etiquette in handling a rejection by Wiggins should that happen. I am speaking about rejected fans getting on twitter delivering negative messages to an 18 year old, like what we did with Anthony Bennett. In the long run, this behavior hurts our ability to recruit because players don’t want to play for a low class fan base. This is a message that needs repeating again and again.

    Matt… Don’t get me wrong, I want Wiggins but it is at least worth asking a question with his apparent shyness. Does he have the DOG!! I’m not sure he does, eitherway I want him but it will be interesting to see him in the future and how the lack of the assertivness will play out.

    Matt dont blame the fanbase for not hiding something that was public, blame the idiot who posted it to begin with, only the guy who posted it should be blamed because thats what happens when you put that info out there like that, blaming the fanbase is a cheap shot.

    It would seem to me that if we believe what Wiggins says (as opposed to recruiting expert opinions), that FSU couldn’t be his choice. He said he wants to win, play at a place with good facilities and be surrounded by good players. In my opinion, that makes FSU last.

    With that being said, that’s why I think he wants his decision to be closed to the media. I think he’ll choose FSU, but he doesn’t want to answer the, “I thought you said you these other factors were key in your decision” questions.

    As far as Im concerned we ALREADY HAVE the best player in the nation. Julius Randle stood out in the all star games more than Andrew Wiggins. Its was evident Wiggins needs to be on his own for his game to shine. He didnt really excel with other talent on the same team.

    Matt, the only real credible things we know for certain through this whole thing is the very things that have come from Wiggins own mouth. Come on Matt. Wiggins couldn’t have been completely honest about his biggest factors and pick FSU. The most in depth we have seen is the Jason Jordan article. Read that article and tell me it isnt UK. Come on Matt.

    I think Wiggins is milking it. He can do what he likes, hope it works out. But he should be honest: he is weak and doesnt really want to compete. If he picks FSU, he is hiding out and bowing to his family. Weak. The NBA is high profile, kid. You play with professionals…better be ready…better to go to UK and get aclimated

    Wiggins should pick UK because there will be ex-UK players / team mates on multiple NBA rosters (maybe his team too). He will have a LARGE peer support group in the NBA if he picks UK.

    Wiggins has something to offer all of the schools, but UK is the only one that can offer him something. If he’s not a fan of the spotlight, the only school that can take the pressure off is UK and the rest of the guys on the team. Anywhere else he is all but alone in the spotlight. Add that with UK’s track record of delivering top prospects to the #1 draft pick and the ability to actually improve his game against the competition…His pick has gotta be UK, unless Mom and Dad are making his decision, a la Shabazz Muhammad, in which case good luck!



  168. msd353
    11:31 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    I sort of think he feels 95% of the country is going to hate his decision to go to KY so he doesn’t want to flaunt the fact. The whole country outside of BBN will see this day as the end for their team next year, and he feels bad about that. I think Fulford reminded him about the absolute dominance and fun he will bring to UK and to no other team.

    Matt, any chance you’re hedging your bets with your prediction/thoughts on Wiggins like you’ve done in the past (i.e., Louisville winning the title)? If Wiggins comes, that makes your book have that much more potential, and that possibility far outweighs that chance you could be wrong/leaning the other way on Wiggins’ decision. Maybe some kind of reverse psychology?

And I agree with you defending the fans being hyped. Its probably the most hyped recruit since Wall so it is a big deal. Thanks for your show, you do a great job.



  179. KentuckyRosie
    11:38 am May 13, 2013 Permalink

    If Wiggins doesn’t want to gain huge attention, it seems like this would be the year for him to choose UK. He is going to be on a whole team of superstars to share the burden of the media onslaught, whereas he is going to be the center of the hype at a school like FSU. I think it is not great for our chances that he is announcing so privately, but I also think there is a point to be made about how much superstar attention he will get here vs. another school (especially this year).
