Nobody in College Basketball has had a Better Offseason than Kentucky


The 2017 season didn’t end well, but since the buzzer-beating loss, finding good news about Kentucky basketball has been easy.  The latest and greatest news was Saturday night’s surprise commitment from Kevin Knox.

The Worldwide Leader in Sports looked around college basketball to find who has had the best and who has had the worst offseason.  Of course, Myron Medcalf started by discussing Calipari’s success.

John Calipari is the buddy you no longer invite on group trips to Las Vegas because you hate to come back broke while he gloats about another big weekend at the blackjack table.

He acknowledged that Calipari’s rebuild is difficult, maybe his most difficult so far, but he’s still going to be jut fine.

Just when it appeared Calipari would endure perhaps his most difficult reset, he made a few moves in April (and early May with Knox) to temper any concern of a decline. The roster is not set yet, but the Wildcats have another intriguing beast in Lexington.

So how did Kentucky navigate another uncertain, disruptive April? With the same ease the program has enjoyed since Calipari arrived in 2009. This young team has as much talent as any program in the country.

    This pic reminded me how turrrrible the NCAA really is. Kentucky placed a cease-and-desist order on Drake after self-reported violations, due to pictures with players/recruits and hanging around the program. Common knowledge told me that Duke player Lance Thomas had 30 large in college and was given 70,000 worth of jewelry that he never paid back. Hookers don’t have to cease or desist on campus at Louisville and the program stays away from class on top of Chapel Hill.

      Yeah, NC won a title; but, they should lose two…and they would if the NCAA had any cojones.

      This was not meant to praise UNC, I sat in the FedEx Forum next to the most obnoxious UNC fan imaginable and had to stifle vomit after Maye hit that shot. I’m just saying, we need to be real here…

    We should t be content until diallo says he is coming back, and Bamba and Johnson commit. Only then can we say, all is well.
