Dude has it figured out, thought it was a great hire initially and now it looks like a legacy like hire for the AD there.
    Everyone said the same **** this past season and we all saw what happened.

    Freshman are exactly that, this class isn't as good as the Davis/MKG one and no senior leadership.

    UK will be really good but hardly unbeatable by any stretch.

    Lot of people said the same exact **** last year.

    Fact remains freshman are exactly that.

    Proven upperclassman > unproven freshman.

    I really abhor Calipari and his practices, but he and they are a product of the stupid system the NBA and NCAA has colluded into place.

    So, do you want to bet that Kentucky will be a lot better than last year?

    I'd hope they will, not sure what that has to do with anything.

    It remains to be seen whether UK will have someone the caliber of MKG or Anthony Davis but the one thing I do know is that they've certainly got plenty of talent to make up for not having one of those superstar caliber players. As Calipari has shown before, age is just a number. If I have a choice between a good upperclassman and a great freshman, I'd rather have the great freshman any day of the week.

    Cal gets his teams to play defense and play unselfishly, I see no reason why he won't be able to do that again.

    isn't Randle supposed to be as talented as Davis & MKG?

    He's supposed to be better offensively, not sure if he will be as great as either of those two defensively. I look forward to watching him play as much as I do Wiggins and Parker. I hate that Heyward makes me seem like a UK fan, it makes me want to vomit.

    Should probably have the best player in the country at 3 or 4 positions.

    The NCAA can be hypocritical scumbags at times. http://hamptonroads.com/2013/08/odu-...-appeal-denied

    This is one of the best student athletes in the county (at least academically). He's a team captain, just embodies what college athletics is designed to be about.

    He goes to Clemson and as a freshman plays in 23 games.

    As a soph he plays 8 mins in a closed door scrimmage at the beginning of the year and decides he wants to go back home and be with his family. (No medical hardship sent)

    He then transferred that year to ODU and sat out

    The kid then played 2 seasons at ODU.

    But, the NCAA ruled his 8 mins scrimmage counts as a full year of eligibility despite granting a player at Notre Dame in a similar situation another year.

    If it was UNC, I'm sure the player would get the extra year. (which by the way I called Hairston playing this year)

    I'm sure UK will be pretty formidable, but that is a pretty ridiculous statement
