    Matt, can you talk about the problems the team had towards the end of the season? You sorta teased us about it a few times saying you wanted to wait til the season is over before you talk about it on air. Come on Syracuse! Get a win tonight!

    I am glad Judd isn’t going to run for the senate. She hates coal and coleslaw.

    When I worked for a comic book publisher we were submitted a proposal from the wrestler The Ultimate Warrior. His character was a super hero called Warrior and he coined the word destrucity and he said it was when truth and reality meets your destiny. So I think I am going to change my twitter to destrucity_kidnut1212

    Hey guys I just looked on Willie’s twitter and noticed that there is some guy tweeting him saying he needs to go on to the NBA. Just like a few minutes ago Willie said he was going to take a quiz and that guy tweeted him and said “No quizzes in the NBA” I hope this dude doesn’t effect Willie’s decision.

    Wow, now Matt wants to bash WCS because he wants to go to the NBA. He is 7-1 and runs like a deer, thats his NBA skill. What exactly can Samuel Dalembert do? And he has been in the league for a decade.



  36. Kidnut
    10:19 am March 28, 2013 Permalink

    I just did a search on Destrucity and apparently it has been updated and given an even greater backstory…

    Tri-fold in its definition, therefore meaning…
    1. The name of the Galaxy in WARRIOR wherein the “Terrain of Testament” lies.
    2. The Living of one’s life in the Way of a Warrior according to a Warrior’s 8 Disciplines. Those are as follows: 1)Physical, 2)Beliefs, 3)Moment of Mastery, 4)Attitude, 5)Commitment, 6)Association, 7)Integrity, 8)Wisdom.
    3: The creating of a truce between one’s Destiny and one’s Reality. Promising to stay true to what one is destined to be, yet accepting what is the now… one’s reality.

    I am totally in it now. We also had a proposal for ninja peanuts which I though was funny.

    You have to strike while the iron is hot. His sotck may never get any higher than it is now. In fact if he doesn’t improve his stock could actually fall. To much money to take a chance on. The smart move would be to go.

    I love Willie and hope and pray he sticks around for a while for his own good and BBN’s. That said, the way some fans(?) are harrassing and criticizing the kid on Twitter, I definitely would understand if the wants to clear the heck out of here. Really wish some people would grow up and remember these are kids. Social media eats its own sometimes it seems.

    Everybody has been talking about how we really needed experience on this year’s team but many are now trying to run off everyone who would have a little experience for next year. What’s up with that? Can’t have it both ways. We need leadership.

    I’ll be cheering for him next year no matter where he plays.

    See here’s the thing with WCS. He openly mocks and argues back with fans on Twitter. If you do that, people are going to respond to that. It’s just the nature of Twitter. It’s like when your friends are giving you sh*t, if you let it get to you, it’s going to increase tenfold.

    Fans should never write these guys, but Twitter isn’t the place to talk back to the fans. It brings out the worst in people.

    I think what most see is the D league “USUALLY” isn’t just to get a guy some minutes. They wouldn’t need those minutes if they were good enough to get minutes in the league.

    IF they NEED more work in the D league, why not stay with Cal and get your work done here? Cal knows what it takes and I feel like they’ll get more one on one work here and when they become pro, it’s all about them to get it done. Everyone already refers to UK as the NBA minor league team, so why not stay around here instead of being a player known to go in and out of the D-League?

    With my Basketball Knowledge, here are evaluations:

    Willie Cauley: Has tremendous upside, can run and jump like no other big man, but has NO MOVES on the post. He isnt the force Nerlens is on defense and essentially on offense he can only do what others creat for him. Essentially he isnt a threat at all on Offense. Has no jumper. He has a ton he needs to work on and can learn alot from Dakari who is a big man that has a great low post game.

    Alex Poythress: Physically looks like he is ready. However his size is that “tweener” size and he doesnt have the post game to play the 4 but doesnt have the handle to play the 3. A year going up against Randle changes everything.

    Archie: Needs to develop basketball IQ. Bottom line.

    Nerlens: Good as Gone!

    #57 Agree with most of that. The problem with thinking, oh I’ll just go to the D League and be back in the NBA in a year, is that it won’t be the case for WCS. You’re 100% correct that he has NO moves on the offense. No 10 footer. No post move. Can’t back the defender down. He’d struggle just in the D League at this point. Come back for a year and make sure you don’t burn out of the D League, which I feel he would if he leaves this year.

    #59 UofL and Duke both can’t be in the Final Four.

    If Wiggins commits it really dont matter what WCS does.

    BUT, man I want WCS to come back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He blows away the GM’s next year he will be a top 5 pick and TRIPLE the $$$ he would make. It’s a finacial decision, I hope he uses his brain rather than his emotions.

    Yeah money is good but like Jesus sais, “Dont touch it cause I have something better for you”

    Here is what happened:

    1) Randle committed to UK long before Wiggins Visited
    2) During Wiggins visit his main concern was chemistry so Cal said let me make a call
    3) Cal figured a way to switch the Jordan Brand rosters to get Wiggins to play with the Harrisons and company to get a “feel” for the chemistry

    ——
    Here is what will happen:
    4) Wiggins spends McD’s and Nike with guys and LOVES IT
    5) Wiggins committs to UK

    Mercer was #2 to Kevin Garnett. Bogans was top 10. I believe his high school teammate Joe Forte was ranked higher than him. The Dukie who Franklin pissed off is Dante Jones.

    South Carolina has been on him for a looong time. I think he was favoring them before the new staff came to UK, but things are changing. He likes Stoops and the rest of the staff.

    I don’t want to sound like one of “those people” but my uncle is the AD at Conner and my cousin is a former QB for them. I’m a little more tuned in than most. Do with that what you wish.

    Good for Joker that he’s getting on with his life and is embracing his new role as an assistant. That stated, good for UK that he’s gone because he was downright terrible.
