University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The hats are out!

BG25gbWCUAA2tAt.jpg_large

We are approximately 25 minutes away from Aaron Gordon’s college announcement. Evan Daniels tweeted the picture above of the hats Gordon will choose from, which I’m sure you’ll evaluate the heck out of below (for what it’s worth, they’re in alphabetical order and Gordon is right-handed). The announcement will not be televised, so keep your finger on the refresh button.

Before you get out the bubbly, he’s not expected to pick the Cats. But, never say never, especially when John Calipari’s involved.

    None of these hats have been put on or tested the way they were with Randall, my guesses in order of likelihood, Arizona, Oregon, Kentucky, Washington.

    If we are using the Julius Randle logic again, the Oregon bill is the most bent.

    Based on Randle’s decision the hat gave it all away.
    My gut says Arizona, but the Arizona and the Oregon hat are the most generic, while Washington’s is the most unique (still ugly).
    Despite all this, I still say Arizona.

    Dude plays basketball better than he chooses hats. My guess is Washington, though the UK hat isn’t as bad as the rest, it’s still awful.

    I feel like if we get Gordon we will not get Wiggins. I would much rather have Wiggins.

    By the looks of those hats, I’m expecting a total shocker…he will pull a remotely decent looking hat from under the table and announce his commitment to Florida Gulf Coast.

    No way he chooses UofK. He obviously makes bad decisions based on the most horrible array of hats I have ever seen.



  24. B-man

    Hmmm…a power forward from out west has UK and Washington in the mix. I say he picks the Huskies, then switches to the Cats (assuming history truly does repeat itself).

    The center mic cord is closest to the UK hat, we got this.

    #18 – Even if that WERE true, their coach just left for USC last night.. You couldn’t have picked a different team?

    18 – You do know FGCU doesn’t have a coach anymore don’t you? Their coach just got hired by USC. He’s heading to Lala land.

    Listen to me!! It’s UK. He wants to the NBA, and he knows UK gives the best exposure. Daniel Orton being taken in the first round sold him.

    Is Gordon left or right handed. You want to make the pick fluid. So if he is left handed he is picking UK. If he is right handed he is picking Oregon. 50-50..Lets hoping he is a southpaw

    27 & 31 – I’m aware that Enfield went to USC. It was just joke. I honestly do not believe he is picking FGC. My gut tells me Washington. That hat is so damn ugly that he almost HAS to pick it.

    No way he chooses UK. How crowded of a front-court would we have? Unless he can play guard or SF there aren’t enough minutes. My guess is when Randle knew 6 weeks ago, Cal told Gordon, then ironically Gordon has known his choice for about 4-5 weeks.

    I was hoping Wiggins would dunk yesterday and put a UK sticker on the backboard. How cool would that have been for him to announce during a dunk?



  42. Wooo

    Looks like wiggins and randle are becoming very good friends. They have been hangin with each other all weekend. Everytime I see one, I see the other. #2manwolfpack

    If he doesn’t pick up the Kentucky hat, he should just give it to Wiggins to wear around.

    We’re trying to decipher this hat placement, and it’s likely that Aaron Gordon wasn’t even the person that put them there. But…it is fun.

    I’m really hoping Zona since I don’t really think he’s coming here and it’s my alma mater. Since he said he made his decision a month ago and let the coach know then I think Matt would have had some kind of indication before now that he was coming here.

    Kentucky
    UW
    Arizona
    Oregon

    Arizona and Oregon only had success this year. UW was down this year but better than Arizona and Oregon in previous few years. And Kentucky is Kentucky.

    The Zona and Ducks hats he got from the same place in the last couple days, the Wash hat he got at some gas station or thrift store around where they are having the McDee’s game, the UK hat he got from the UK staff.



  81. Peoplewhowork
    12:37 pm April 2, 2013 Permalink

    His choice is UK and be a part of the greatest collection of talent to ever touch the hard wood. People will look back at the 2013-2014 team and be astounded at how much NBA power that UK team had. His historic rise on the national stage of basketball begins now when he choses UK. Option 2, he picks any of the other schools and struggles to keep his name relevant until he moves onto the NBA. He has talent he is going to the NBA eventually, does he start the Aaron Gordon publicity train rolling today, or in a few years?

    He’ll either pick Washington or UK. The Oregon and AZ hats are the exact same and they generally buy a hat they like for the pictures, so their choice of hat is a little different than the others. Unless Gordon has caught on to that fact and is using reverse psychology.
