Saying goodbye to Anthony Bennett (Monday Show Thread)

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard Anthony Bennett is staying out west. The nation’s top uncommitted recruit dropped Kentucky and Florida from contention, leaving only UNLV and Oregon as potential college destinations. The news stung at first, but it could end up being a blessing in disguise if some of the talk around his eligibility and attitude are true. Matt will talk about those issues and many other topics from around the world of Kentucky on this morning’s radio show on Talk Radio 1080 AM in Louisville and 630 AM in Lexington. Give him a call at (502) 571-1080 or send a text to the TEXTING MACHINE at (317) 385-5148

Topics include:

— Where do we go from here?

— Cal’s top priority

— Random celebrities at the KY Derby

— It was hot outside over the weekend

    Did UK and UF get used by UNLV via AB to manufacture some hype around their program?

    I’d venture to say yes. Yes they did.

    First- of many to say we didn’t want him anyway. Too much trouble. He didn’t want to play team ball. He couldn’t make it at UK anyway. UK’s not for everyone (oops sorry #1). Recruiting violation waiting to happen. He’s not that good anyway. Shall I continue. Howie Lindsey’s belly is smiling.

    I think that Bennett would have been a good fit. Just like with Shabazz, we shouldn’t have a sour grapes mentality just because we didn’t get him, because the majority of us wanted him. I wish him well, but just as #1 states, UK isn’t for everyone.

    I hope Mr. Bennett has made a good decision for himself. Playing at Ore. or UNLV is not going to be on a stage like UK, or even UF for that matter. But if he is happy we should all support him and his decision.

    Here’s the thing…when a recruit wants to take an official visit, they have to produce a transcript. The fact that Bennett hasn’t taken an official at this stage in the process, combined with the fact that the major programs (UK and UF) have been “eliminated” (i.e., backed off), is very telling with regard to his chance of being eligible.

    Please don’t start saying we “didn’t want to kid anyways.” We wanted him, but he didn’t want to (or couldn’t) come here so let’s not act like “attitude issues” are the reason we aren’t pursuing him any longer. If it’s an academic issue so be it, but UK fans acting like we didn’t want him anyways are kidding themselves. We want anyone that can play ball at the highest level and it didn’t work out. Good luck to him and UK will be fine.

    Isn’t there still eligibilty concerns on Bennett? I am not sure it would have been good on him coming to UK even though it would have been nice. Seems the NCAA already has hawkeyes on us as it is. I say Jefferson is the man to concentrate on now. Without either I think we still have a Final Four team as it is.

    Matt, at this point I don’t think UK gets enough recruits to be as good next season as they were this past season. However, that has nothing to do with whether or not they are an “elite” team in the 2013 tournament. They only have to be better than the other teams in the 2013 tournament and if UL and IU are the best you can offer up then the chances of UK being “elite” are very good. We still have great players coming in and Calipari is the coach. That is a proven combination.

    Apple Cider Vinegar will just make you pee alot. Fish oil is great for your heart, but will not cause you lose weight…the only thing is good diet and excercise…quit eating bread and pasta (carbs a plenty)…eat low carb (less than 80 day), stay under 1800 cal…quit eating so much fruit, high carbs….and get off your lazy Hoosier Ass!

    256- First off I hate real Barney, But I in no way hate real Barney as much as I hate Fake Barney. Reasons? Maybe the nasially voice, the moaning, the fact that he calls so often. I mean come on, this makes our fan base looks even worse. I just don’t understand why a grown man feals the need to call a talk show in a fake Barney voice. Next call please, I have about quit listening because of this guy. Love John Short (he’s authentic), love Big Brother, Love Da truth (authentic). Please bring something to the show besides a bad nasilly purple dinosaur impression. Stop it…..

    No running or walking in the cemetery. It is a solemn place. No running up and down church aisles either.



  305. HugoCabrera
    11:46 am May 7, 2012 Permalink

    NO – Not OK to exercise there unless it’s completely empty. I know when visiting my brother, I’d feel a little put off by someone trouncing through (even on a path) disrespecting a personal, emotional, and private moment. There are plenty of places to run/ride bikes that are less invasive.

    Run all you want, Matt. Cemetaries are some of our best public spaces (Lexington’s is especially nice), and going IN to do something that will ultimately keep you OUT seems like a great use. Appreciating the beauty of the landscape is respectful in and of itself.

    As an update to my comment about riding my bike in the cemetery…

    We would always stay away when there was a graveside service or something like that going on. It was really close to my grandmothers house and traffic was low/non existent so it was a safe place for us.



  317. FaninCarlisle

    This is why I love this site and the people that hang out here.

    Last week: “Once we get Bennett we’ll have the #1 class and on the way to #9!”

    Today: “We really don’t need Bennett; he’s got an attitude problem and his transcript issues; we are better off without him.”

    My guess is that his transcript and attitude really didn’t change too much in the last couple of months.
