    Sad to hear about the explosion, prayers for West, Texas. Should be a big show with Wiggins’ High School coach coming on the show. Do you like ‘I heard it from this guy, who heard it from this guy’ type rumors? If so, I got one for you (if not, skip down to JB’s post). I go to church with a guy who plays basketball with one of the trainers at UK and he says, that the trainer says ‘Wiggins is in the bag’. I don’t necessarily put a lot of stock into it, and neither did my friend at church, but I know some people like reading that type of stuff. When is Sting coming on the show?

    Dr Sayre is #1!

    So uncle Matt, did you have a chat with Chris Cross?

    Are you going to Cal’s pro camp thing? You need to be writing that book!

    showed up 3 minutes early and DrSayre still had the first post and a long one at that. Must have had that pretyped and copied and pasted (pretty clever)

    Here’s a question. I know Matt has said in the past that a book would have an effect on the show. I’m just curious what that would be. I’m excited for the book and this season but just wondering how it may change things.

    Do you guys not remember when Matt let it slip that Wiggins was coming? It was in a conversation with Ryan, he let it slip and then went, “SHHHH” and you could tell Matt was smiling when he said it. Happened a week or 2 ago, I think he knows more than he can say.

    I actually think this whole recruiting process helps add to the mystique about Wiggins. If he’d just came out and said I’m going to this school 6 months ago, we wouldn’t be talking about him. But right now, after the season ended and things, he’s dominating the conversation. He may legitimately not know where he’s going, but I think it’s helping to hype him up the longer it’s dragged out.

    #7/Real JD, Wiggins may have told Cal he’s coming, but until he signs the LOI and is on campus I won’t say anything’s 100%. Remember Shabazz committed to UK and Duke and ended up at UCLA.

    @11 point taken, had forgot Shabazz actually committed to us.

    I just thought it was kinda funny Matt let it slip then went “SHHH” and Ryan said “Freudian slip”!

    Someone please explain this to me:

    Karl Towns Rankings:
    ESPN-5
    RIVALS- 11
    SCOUT- 9
    24/7 – 12

    HOW IS HE THAT LOW? The kid is a LEGIT 7foot. Has a polished low post game, is extremely mobile for his size, has good handles, excellent vision and passing ability, and can step out and fill it up from outside…. the ONLY thing you can say is he needs to bulk up a lil more but you can say that for EVERY high school kid. Show me Okafor or Cliff Alexander stepping out and going 18 for 25 from NBA Range? I just dont get it….

    I dont think people realize how good Karl Towns is…

    There was chatter that Rick Pitino might hang it up after last year if UofL won the title. Pitino will not retire as long as Calipari is coching. Pition has coached 8 more years than Cal and has only 138 more wins (taking away the vacated years). Pitino knows that Cal would likely tie, or pass him, in titles and would pass him in wins.

    I’ve got a bridge I’d like to talk to Brandon Knight about selling to him. Interest rates are basically 0, so anyone guaranteeing over 10% (in this case it was 11-26%) is a scam or going to end poorly. No real investment professional will guarantee any return.

    As UK Fans, we always give our beloved teams nicknames, some good, some lame.

    I think it’s a worthy exercise to give a nickname to LAST YEAR’s team…I humbly submit my suggestion:

    “The Indecipherables” -> Because I spent 1/2 of last year yelling “What the hell was THAT?!?!” while watching that team.

    Was it me, or was the UNC quote at the end a throw away? It seemed like he seemed to almost forget UNC after talking about the other schools and realized he needed to say something. If one was a clairvoyant, you could probably read the current order as: UK, FSU, KU and UNC.
