    Does Cal have any idea how bad he make joker look. Cal gets more 5* players in one week (last week, in one day) than joker will get in his whole career. There is no way joker turns into a gooda nuf coach to ever land a 5*

    He looks like Winston Guy when we were recruiting him.

    This ride we are on as UK fans is a journey that will never be topped again. We are flat out SPOILED with Coach Cal at the throne. It’s almost as if we don’t even want four star recruits, which is obviously silly to feel that way. With that being said, what coach in their right mind would want to follow in Cals footsteps whenever he decides to step down and move on. This run of signing 5 star after 5 star can not go forever without Cal as King of the Bluegrass, so who out there would even want to give it a shot being head coach at UK knowing what we have been accustomed to with Cal as our leader. He needs to start recruiting Kentucky as the place to go rather than recruiting himself the coach to play for. We should all enjoy it while it lasts!!

    Hearing Nerlens will likely miss 10 to 15 games. Issue goes deeper than official visits. One of his handlers went to the NCAA. The handler wanted him to go to syracuse and was very upset when he announced for UK. This will not be resolved anytime soon.

    11) Heard same thing. FYI not everybody who posts something you don’t believe is a Cards fan. It’s become the thing to do on here though.

    8 – I think you’re right… In a best case scenario he missed 10-15. Worst case he’s another Enes. The handler is former Providence Assistant Chris Driscoll. I’m not sure which school might be associated with the violations. Hopefully the one Driscoll worked with and not us.

    9- I told you folks a few days ago that it was between Texas and Florida for Julius Randle. Texas most likely having the edge as of today. I guess Evan Daniels tweeting the same news I reported should tell you that I am not making this stuff up but some will deny it anyway. Randle isn’t coming to UK. Not playing with the Harrison twins. End of story. Now move on to another recruit and forget about him. Congrats on getting Young.

    #7 I think a coach that wants to become and instant multimillionaire would want to come here…

    16 – I haven’t heard anything about number of games, but the scummy people who tried attaching themselves to Nerlens, keeping him in the class of ’13 and delivering him to Cuse are the culprits.

    They tried “owning” him – Well, now you have to do what I want you to because I’ve committed violations and will tell on you if you don’t. It’s really a shame how much scum is out there trying to take advantage of kids for themselves.

    GoG8ors: You are such an idiot. You have NEVER been right when it came down to a recruit. “Anthony Bennett is Florida bound. Take it to the bank.” As he proceeds to cut you all first. Have fun getting our leftovers. Walker BEGGED for an offer from UK, and Cal never gave him one. Give me a break. Randle will go to Kentucky. I will put money on it. Randle already came out and said that the Twins Rivalry rumors are extremely false, as did his mother. Says they talk all the time, would EASILY play together.

    20- I explained what happened in the Bennett situation so not going to rehash that again. There is truth to the rumor about Randle not wanting to play with the Doublemint twins. Do you think he wants to air this out in public and the media make a huge deal over it? No, he is gonna deny it and take the high road as if there is nothing to it. It is in fact true. As for leftovers, Calipari offered Kasey Hill a scholarship way before he offered the Doublemint twins so who is getting the leftovers? Walker indeed wanted a UK offer and will use that snub as a big chip on his shoulder when he goes off whenever the teams meet.



  22. When?
    8:13 pm October 11, 2012 Permalink

    The bigger question is when will Florida be relevant in the national picture, much less the SEC…

    If #8 & 13 are right, and Nerlens is partially ineligible due to what one of his handler’s did, then the NCAA should not punish the kid. I’d say that no matter what school he played for. If the NCAA is so ignorant (and it is) to believe that a 12-18 year old has ANY concept of where “the money” comes from, then God help them. Most kids that age think that there’s some kind of magic money tree in their parents’ backyard.

    And if one of the handlers who was at fault for paying for the visit then tipped off the NCAA because he was pissed about the recruit not going to his school of choice, then the NCAA should eloquently tell him to “F Off.”

    The argument that these “top recruits” should be aware of any potential violations also does not hold any weight. 95% of the people who work for the NCAA and most college coaches can’t even keep up with what exactly is a violation. How is a 15 year old supposed to?

    Randle is a cat for sure. The only reason why Daniels thinks that is because young committed. We will get randle

    17 makes no sense, the Harrisons have always been Cals top priority, its two for one,not to mention the top two guards, and Young commiting has nothing to do with Randle, Young is a sg, Randle is a pf, florida already has signed a top 10 pf, walker, and lets be honest when Randle went on his trip tu UF 90% of the pics he tweeted were football related, so unless youre recruiting him for a TE he will not be playin for Florida it dosent make sense, its like picking UK in football over Florida.

    21 – Your story is very accurate if it was still May or June. Randle may very well still not choose the Cats, but he’s 1000x more open to playing with the Harrisons now. Maybe if Billy the Kid could get Patric Young to the NBA he’d have a more likely chance with Randle.

    #21, was at City of Palms tourney and Donovan followed Mr. Hill around. No UK coach was there for him so I don’t think UK was making him a priority. And why would they when they were clearly going for the Harrisons even then?

    #8 You would think with all that illegal benefit money thrown at Nerlens he could afford a decent haircut.A good pair of wool shears would do that head some good!!

    UF fans need to go back to their own boards. Not interested in the garbage they bring to this forum.
