Whether it’s a good or bad thing is up for debate, but there’s no denying Willie Cauley-Stein is getting the most out of his Twitter account and making news by doing so. Since the season ended a little over a week ago, the Kentucky big man has been tweeting about his millionaire dreams, excitement about next year’s class, episodes of Prison Break, and a girl at Panda Express. It’s clear he isn’t shy about throwing his thoughts out there for Big Blue Nation to consume and dissect — which we’re all guilty of. It happens. We just want to know if he’ll be back.
Earlier today Willie sent out another newsworthy tweet for us to devour when he said he already told everyone what he plans to do:
In all seriousness tho lol I thought I already told everyone my answer if I’m staying or going! #notsatisfied

A quick trip down memory lane will lead you to these quotes after the loss to Robert Morris:
“I’ve got this empty feeling in my gut and I want to fill it.”
“It just depends what my situation is. I want to win a national championship. Could be next year. Could be the year after. But I never won a ring before and I really want a ring before I leave college.”
“I’ve just gotta look out for me and my family. If it comes down to it, if my family needs me, then I’ll go. But if not, I’ll stay and get a couple more years of education and develop.”
Now it’s up to us to interpret what he means in the tweet.
Is he suggesting that he’ll return to win that ring? Or that he’s waiting to see “what his situation is”?
My advice: Don’t put a lot of stock into any of his tweets. We’ll get the definitive answer from UK soon.
