Five Questions That Need Answers

It’s Thursday at noon o’clock and there are five burning questions on my mind that need answers. I assume you’re in the same boat on these.

Can anyone help us out in solving these mysteries?


What’s up with the Jarred Vanderbilt injury?

Is he okay? Is it short term? Is it long term? Was his foot amputated?

It has been almost three weeks since Vanderbilt went down in the closing seconds of the Jordan Brand Classic, clutching his right food and writhing in pain. We were told he underwent X-rays back in Houston the following day, but there hasn’t been an update on the extent of the injury since. What’s up with the foot?

What’s up with this Texas noise for Mohamed Bamba?

Where is it coming from? Is Duke peddling it around? I’ve been told the folks down in Austin like their own chances for Bamba, but I don’t see how the recruitment is trending that direction because the folks in Lexington are confident too.

Is he going to Texas? Why would he go to Texas? He’s not going to Texas, is he? That’s stupid.

Does Kentucky have a shot at Kevin Knox?

I’ve heard stuff behind the scenes on the Mohamed Bamba recruitment, but I haven’t heard one word about Kevin Knox. Is Coach Cal in the hunt or is Knox headed to the ACC? Should we stay by our phones and computers this weekend? Will he actually announce this weekend or push it back again? I don’t have the slightest clue about any of it.

Has Jon Toth signed with an NFL team yet?

Reports that Toth signed with the 49ers after going undrafted have since been retracted and we haven’t heard a word about Toth’s NFL future since then. Is he still weighing his options? Did he sign with a team? Is he hanging out at the Versailles Kroger with in Freddie Maggard? Where is Jon Toth?

What is going on in Hamidou Diallo’s brain?

To quote one Isaiah Briscoe on Instagram, “Where you going, Hami????”

    I read this post in Andy Rooney’s voice – so many questions that we don’t know the answers to!

    …….I have all of these on my mind as well…… are your answers: (1) Vanderbilt is likely fine for 2017-18 UK basketball purposes, (2) Bamba is NOT going to Texas……he’ll be the next Big Thing in Lexington, (3) No…UK has no shot at Knox…..he’s a Dookie, (4) Toth has not signed with a team yet, but will likely do so soon and we’ll be among the first to know, (5) Hami has his head screwed on exactly right, he’s going to test his draft status. He’ll be designated a borderline 1st round pic and play one season at UK before becoming a lottery pick in 2018…….

      I think you hit the nail on the head. I agree with your 5 question assessment 🙂

      Agree with the assessment, nice job. I would only add one thing. If Bamba goes to Texas it’s because he NEEDS to be the man. Perhaps he would have been a problem here anyway if that’s the case.

      I can get on board with all that Kat4life.

      The only detail I disagree with is Knox’s destination, but I do agree that he isn’t coming here. For whatever reason, I see him going to UNC.

    How do you know your consciousness is the same as others who experience consciousness?

      “… everything’s much clearer now, we live within a dream and never wake…”

      Bet you will never know what rock and roll song that line is from.

      RCF, I’m just a child of innocence, and I really have no idea what song that would be.

      Either Google is your friend, or you grew up in the 70’s like I did. 😉

    Can we get someone to post up outside Vanderbilt’s house and see how he’s getting around? Walking? Crutches? Knee scooter? iWalk? Wheelchair?
