Things to do as you wait for players to decide

Watch all other schools fall apart
as their only good players declare for the draft. Yeah, Kentucky might have a few players leaving, but we will still be stocked up for next year. Other teams will fall off the radar as their ringer goes straight for the NBA without even looking back.



Watch Cal’s press tour
as he continues to defend grandmothers and hip-hop. Buy his book to follow along with as well so you don’t get loss,  since you will be only watching Cal non-stop with all of the appearances he has been making.



Watch Jeff Goodman
downplay Willie’s return like there are other seven foot first round picks growing on trees.  Better yet, as a Goodman protest go out and buy that awesome Willie shirt and Snapchat him a picture.



Laugh at Chad Ford
and his analysis of players. Don’t forget to listen to the opposite of what he
says. It can be like a fun game of opposite day. At least his errors can bring us
joy in some sort of way, right?



Start getting yourself ready
for football mode as the spring game is right around the corner. Yes. Kentucky still has a football program. I know it got lost a little as Kentucky did well in the tournament. But with the spring game approaching next week, it’s time to get ready for tailgating and watching guys knock each other out.



Go and see Draft Day.
Just kidding. You can always wait until the real life NFL draft in May. Sorry,    Roger. I know you really wanted that money.



Send thank you letters
to Indiana’s school of journalism for promoting UK alumni in their brochure. That was so nice of them to promote our basketball  program and we should let them know how happy we are about it.


Take your significant other somewhere nice
to make up for ignoring her for the past 6 months during basketball season. You have been putting that person off for a while now and it’s time to show them how much you appreciate them…when it isn’t basketball season.



Cancel plans with your significant other
as you realize the NBA season is still going on and you have other Cats to watch. It’s just one date, they can wait a little bit longer right?



Thank the players
for all the heart attacks and joy they gave us throughout the season and especially March. Let them know you appreciate them for joining BBN and leaving everything on the court no matter what decision they make.

    As far as your statement … “for ignoring her for the last 6 months” ??? Come on! You have to know half of the readers on your site are female. As I was watching all the games, ESPN, and following KSR for any and all stories about my Wildcats, my significant other (husband) was playing games/watching videos on his I-pad. Obviously,he’s not from a basketball state/family and just doesn’t “get it”!!!

      That was a pretty stupid thing to say. A lot of us ladies are die hards too.

    Will rex be acting as spokesman for any of the players announcements, or is he just Coach Cal’s self appointed spokesman?

    I read this and scrolled down immediately to leave a comment about the same thing! Glad you beat me to it! Women are just as big if not bigger Cats fans!

    I think there’s going to be a big press conference and Cal will announce that no ones going pro. All of them are coming back to win a championship. Maybe, just maybe, shooting for that undefeated season. A man can dream, right? So don’t stomp on my dreams ya hear! Maybe if I asked Santa for an early Christmas present… #FINGERSCROSSED #Theresstillhope
