What the Twitter world was saying

Jarrod Polson was the man of the hour(s) last night in Brooklyn. And if Big Blue Nation didn’t already have a soft spot for the former walk-on, they do now. Polson was trending on Twitter in the United States through most of the game. Afterward in the locker room when he was told by our fearless leader that his name was trending all night, Polson’s eyes light up, and he said, “Whoa, that’s awesome.”

Here is some of what was said.

    Does Polson now deserve to start?

    Maybe is will light a fire under Harrow. I’d give Polson the starting role based on what I saw in the two exhibition games and last night. Always love to see a KY kid do well.

    Kudos to Polson… A state championship ring, a Mr. Basketball award and a head-to-head win say not so fast on Jarrod Polson > Elisha Justice…

    A Terps fan was heard to say ‘I can’t believe it, we’re getting beat by Luke Perry’

    #6 – If you watched that WJHS v. Shelby Valley game, you’ll know that Polson performed, at the very least, to Justice’s level, and perhaps had a better all-around game, especially considering that Justice’s team was far and away better than Polson’s. In fact, Polson led WJHS to the Final Four in Rupp the year prior, only to lose by four points to eventual champs Louisville Central. Justice is a better shooter, but that’s the only demonstrable advantage he has in the comparison.

    I don’t care how corny it sounds, one of my bluegrass brethren needs to write a song called “The Ballad of Jarrod Polson.” It is guaranteed to sell. #start’emagainstDuke

    “Polson has earned his PT”. Indeed.

    A state championship ring? Wow! Polson has a National Championship ring.

    Am I the only one that has considered the possibility of Polson making the turnaround, and becoming the kind of story Jort’s was two years ago? From a kid who heard echo’s of “SHHHOOOOOOOOOOTTTT” every time he touched the ball in garbage time of blowout games, to a guy who saved BBN’s collective butts last night in a big game. No one saw Harrellson coming when Kanter was ruled ineligible, and Jort’s filled a big void left there to be one of the biggest reasons that team, in essence, overachieved and made the Final Four. I know it’s only one game but if Polson keeps this up, that will be 2 players under Cal that have come from nowhere and become key players on a team full of pros, it’s hard to argue there’s another coach that could do that.

    I’m not overly surprised by Jarrod’s play last night. He has played a couple short spurts in a couple big games over the last two seasons. He never has messed up and I can specifically remember him making a nice play @ Florida a couple years ago when he got in for like a minute when Cal was mad at Wall and/or Bledsoe (can’t remember exactly). I just know he is plenty capable and have never understood why Cal has always relegated him to the end of the bench. You could tell the kid was very poised and solid in the blue-white game. All that stated, I can honestly say that I was very impressed by the fact he did NOTHING wrong last night and made big plays. He wasn’t just a guy who came in to be a warm body on the floor, but he showed an ability to be one of the better players on the floor.

    Cal knows what Polson has to offer and will us it until Harrow decides to get his head out of his backside. I realize Harrow is sick and this may be why he underperformed last night. However, he has been put on notice by Cal/Polson, play up to your potential or have a seat by me(Cal). Something else I saw when watching game over was Cal pulling Pothress after a non-block out and pulling WCS after not going hard on a rebound. Put your trust in Cal he will get these guys where they need to be. Until then Polson may be “the guy” he goes with for now. Go Cats!!
