    I watched the McD game, didn’t see any drama?

    Isn’t Drama too old to play in a high school basketball game??

  3. Didn’t MJ already say a year or 2 ago that Coach Nesferatu beating us for Bagley & Bolden had already made Cal step up his recruiting?

      They’re talking like Cal didn’t really try to recruit the last couple of years; not buying that, just some we tried to get picked Puke…for whatever reason.

      Thank you, rg. It’s not like Cal just woke up one morning and decided to suddenly start kicking ass again. Maybe it looks like that to us on the outside, but I’m pretty sure recruiting doesn’t work that way.

      I do think Cal had let off the intensity a bit the last few years in recruiting though. He has really been hitting the recruiting trail with a vengeance lately.

    Marquis Bolden immediately comes to mind as one we missed and were relieved.

    So are we playing Puke, UNCheat, and UofHell next season? LOL, the Atlantic Cheaters Conference.

  6. So which station is KSR on in Cincy?

    I really hate to think about Wenyen leaving but I understand.

      I hope he’ll stay; that kid is a ray of sunshine. If he goes in order to help provide for his family, then I totally understand though.

      Me, too. Really wanted him to get his degree before he left.

    A controversial topic that will divide the fanbase? Uh oh, it’s going to be is a hotdog a sandwich all over again.

    I can’t believe I have Karl that low.

    I was pondering guards still and missed the power forward list.

    Those are my rankings, feel free to debate. Point guard is the hardest for me to rank.

      I know some will argue with your ranking of Andrew but when I examine the objective body of work, I am on board.

      WCS over KAT?
      Based on defensive swats? I could see it

    • J-Dub421
      11:45 am April 17, 2018 Permalink

      WCS was a unanimous all american. He’s also the only player I’ve ever seen who could guard every position on the floor and did so on the same possession.

      How do you rank our bigs based on their body of work in the NBA?

    • J-Dub421
      12:13 pm April 17, 2018 Permalink

      NBA is totally different, but Matt said to go only on what they did at UK.

    Briscoe was a point guard who was asked to play small forward for us for two years, and he did so. He also never whined about it and took a lot of abuse from our fanbase. People need to lay off Briscoe.

    What was the McDonalds AA drama?

      Apparently Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett didn’t exactly make any friends and may have rubbed people the wrong way. May have pushed EJ Montgomery right to us.

      Excellent. Thanks.
