    Re: 2009 UK Basketball Thread - Part III

    The back and forth between UK and Louisville fans is quite entertaining. Truthfully, I don't see how much of an effect one has on the other. They're not in the same conference, and they can both be successful at the same time. It's not like Cal going to UK is going to cripple Pitino's program, and it's not like the presence of Pitino is going to hinder Cal. So one might, just MIGHT, lose a recruit they would have nabbed otherwise. However, they'll just replace that one recruit with another 4 or 5 star recruit and move on.

    I hope so. Tijan Jobe can't do it all by himself next year.

    Agreed. They didn't recruit against each other when Cal was at Memphis so it is unlikely that they will overlap much now. Both are great recruiters and coaches. In the past Cal has pushed hard for the top guys regardless of how long or whether they stay in school. After getting burned several years in a row (Telfair, Donta Smith, Amir Johnson) Pitino has mostly stuck to recruiting top players that will stick around for a few years (Clark, Samuels, Siva). Although, he did flirt with Tyreke Evans before giving up on him his senior year when he started to look like a one year player (and Memphis had him locked up).

    Both programs will be great. This just intensifies the fan hatred even more.

    Jeez you should work for the National Enquirer the way you twist statements to mean something totally different than what was implied/meant.
    Geez, you mean like you were doing to me in the first Kentucky thread?

    Sucks when it isn't you doing he twisting, eh??

    What do you insiders know about LeBron's, err...I mean Xavier's, brother and his transfer request? There was a KC Star article that claims they are free to talk to other schools now. I assume this means C.J. can transfer with sitting out a year?

    Kansas recruit Xavier Henry received a release from his signed letter of intent to Memphis on Tuesday, according to Rivals.com.

    The site also reported that Henry’s brother, a freshman at Memphis, has received permission to transfer in the aftermath of John Calipari’s move to Kentucky.

    The Henrys are now free to talk to other schools. Kansas and Kentucky appear to be the main options.

    I've never intentionally twisted anything you've typed.

    You made it sound like Roy didn't want/wouldn't take John Wall and that was/is utter bunk.

    I will be excited when these guys are actually in uniforms and on the practice court. Til then, it's baseball season. All this recruiting stuff is too gray for me.

    Which I never said - thats how you interpreted it. Just like BRM and Joshnky interpreted your "5 stars" line incorrectly.

    But kept posting that garbage. If you knew the history of Roy and Brian Clifton and if you knew that only recently Wall has been distancing himself from Clifton (at least from afar) then you would understand what changed and why Roy now might be talking to Wall.

    And again, its me who doesn't want Wall, not Roy. But we have no chance, cause according to you Coach Cal gets his pick of 5-stars and whatever is left over the rest of us basketball inferiors gets to choose from.

    I just hope Cal has the decency to let us know when he is done eating so the rest of us can get to the table early enough to know our rosters!

    I interpreted something incorrectly? That's impossible.

    We still could have a strong frontline "if" PP comes back.
    Then you would be looking at Patterson/Cousins/Stevenson/Pilgrim.
    I think alot are going to be surprised at Pilgrim's play.
