    That's the one thing you don't have to worry about with Cal.

    As long as he's here, the recruit train will keep rolling and picking up steam.

    Yeah, I think I've heard that somewhere before.

    So you expect to win zero National Championships under The Great One?

    Secondly, I'd take Nolan Dennis all day every day over Bledsoe. Dennis is MUCH taller (6'5") and is a combo guard who can do it all.

    I would say that Bledsoe is a player that Cal looks at only as a back-up plan. He would also almost certainly recruit over him with a bigger guard who is just as--if not more--talented by his second year.
    The only problem is that from everything I have read, Dennis is more of a SG/SF rather than a SG/PG. He would do a lot better on the wing. Kinda reminds me of Antonio Anderson in a way.

    MM and others who have seen him play have said that he can easily be a lead guard/PG if that's what is needed.

    I know. Just giving wmr some static. Though think how far we have come from faking excitement about Tucker. At least now we can be excited about dudes people have heard of.

    There was no "faking" of excitement for Tucker...or Harrellson for that matter.

    As for the Wall/Bledsoe question, I take the better player 10 times out of 10. Maybe he goes to the NBA, who really cares? Nothing is written in stone. Like WMR said, hopefully the recruiting chain is never ending. Maybe Bledsoe tears it up and leaves after 2 years. Too many variables to choose a lesser player IMO. Plus, being able to say you have produced Player X Y and Z who all were drafted top 5 is another recruiting tool.

    Maybe. The danger is that you go into Ohio State's current pattern. They pretty much expected Oden to leave, but Conley surprised them and they still haven't been able to replace him. You are going to have major holes on your team which you won't always be able to replace year in and year out.

    The key to becoming Carolina is getting the those top recruits AND convincing them to play more than one year.

    I wonder if "Ole Roy" is still paying out the bonus rewards?
