    The one with Poythress and MKG makes me smile. The look on Cal’s face is one that my father had given me numerous times as a kid.

    The crazy thing is that Boogie could be a Senior this year and MKG a Sophomore.. Just think what this team could look like if none of them went to the NBA yet..

    Who is the blonde headed guy sitting in the chair to the right of boogie?

    Imagine MKG and Poythress on the court at the same time…damn.

    Cauley is at least a full inch taller than Cousins.

    That is one tall dude. And he can run a deep route ? Wow.

    See how tall Willie is and Cal says he’s almost always first in sprints…scary thought

    I bet he could go to the NFL before the NBA that’s just how good he is.

    Very unlikely, but what about this: Willie Cauley-Stein, Power Forwadr/Center/……….Wide Receiver for the Kentucky Wildcats in 2013/14. season…

    Is that the 3 amigos in the 1st pic? Cauley is really tall. He is towering over Cousins. All great photos! keep em coming!

    These pics are almost surreal. Cousins, and Cauley; Walker and Noel; Poythress and MKG. It’s just…almost brings a tear to your eye and gives you goosebumps.

    What a great collection of “student athletes” Calipari has there…

    I love how Boogie looks at Cal. You can just tell the love and respect he has for dad, errrr, Cal.

    Any kid that questions Cal’s sincerity, just needs to look at the Boogie / Cal relationship.

    Alex and MKG both were/are listed at 6’7, Poythress looks taller.

    The rest of the basketball should get down on their knees and thank Calipari for the One-n-Done. Otherwise they would be staring down the barrel at:

    Sr: Wall
    Sr: Cousins
    Sr: Bledsoe
    Jr: Knight
    Jr: Lamb
    Jr: Jones
    Soph: Teague
    Soph: MKG
    Soph: Davis
    Fresh: Noel
    Fresh: Goodwin
    Fresh: Poythress
    Fresh: Cauley

    Not a bad 13 man roster..any questions???

    #25…WOW!! And you didn’t even list Orton 🙂

    Youre a bit delusional to think that would be the lineup…. if everyone stayed 4 years then your lineup would look more like this:

    Sr: Wall
    Sr: Cousins
    Sr: Bledsoe
    Jr: Lamb
    Jr: Jones
    Soph: MKG
    Soph: AD
    Fr: Goodwin

    No way if JW stays they get Teague or Knight.
    Fr: and 1 of Noel/Poythress/Cauley

    Noel and Cauley also dont Come if you have a front line of Davis,Jones,MKG,Boogie

    Lamb still comes because the need for a pure shooter and Archie fits the bill for that Hybrid player.

    Any room for Wiltjer in that hypothetical team?

    Always enjoy coming to this site and seeing the pictures, sure wish Drew would start identifying the individuals in the pictures. Does EVERYONE always know who everyone is in all of these photos or is it just me? Please Drew, if it is not impossible, you’ve seen it done before… “pictured L-R…”. Sure would lower my frustration level!

    What’s the word on Brandon Knight? Is he going to be at this game? His “connection” with the program doesn’t get as much play on here as Wall, Cousins, or any of the National Champs.

    Poythress is jacked… I can’t wait to watch him drive to the basket. And I used to think Cousins was the biggest bodied player we’d see for a long while, but WCS looks to already disprove that. If he moves like they say…

    Poythress is a freakin MAN!!!

    29 – Sounds like a personal problem to me. Willing to guess thar most people that visit this site know everybody in those pics.

    Just take a look at Poythress’ right arm in that last photo….Hey, Azubuike’s bicep, might wanna change that name soon.

    I recruited WCS to play safety…errr….wide receiver at USC.

    Awesome. Just awesome to see all these guys together; and in an informal situation. Very glad to see Antoine getting his life together. He had to learn some very hard lessons about finances and ‘families’; ie. who is and who is NOT really part of your ‘family.’ GO KATS!!!

    Been busy all day and first chance to check KSR…
    scrolled down page of all the posts and pics of the day…
    maybe I’m the only one, but I have goosebumps and a tear in my eye.

    Love these pics. Awesome to see Cal do this.
    I wonder if Nerlens grew up a huge AWalker fan since he is form Boston and tweeted about the Celtics all season long.

    Why is Noel going to shoot so many 3s this year?
