So anyone therefore who comes in under Calipari will automatically be worth more than a guy who averages a mere 25 points per game.
    It's spelled GILLISPIE.

    Don't blow a gasket WMR. No one is questioning the ability of Xavier Henry. I'm just not ready to annoint him a much better player than the best scorer in the SEC before he ever plays a game against a D1 team.

    Jodie Meeks is the best player in the SEC?

    I'm guessing he was waiting to see if Cousins was going to come or not.
    I read the other day he would consider de-committing if Cousins signed. Where is looking to go now? Do you know who is on his short list?

    I said "scorer", not "player".

    Kansas and Oklahoma State. Also a decent chance he could still end up at UK.

    You said "player" with Henry and "scorer" with Jodie. Which is it?

    Given that Cousins is coming and Patterson may stay, how big of a loss is Orton? I don't ask that out of disrespect, but rather because I really would like to hear your opinions.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of him filling the massive crater size hole in Norman, Oklahoma that was left when Blake Griffin declared.

    Yeah, I guess I did. Poor choice of wording, wasn't it? It doesn't matter anyway. Lebron...err, I mean Xavier...will end up at Kansas anyway.

    *IF* we end up losing him it would be a significant loss, usually...

    however, with Coach Cal, and with the bigs that we're going to have next season, it's not that big of a deal.

    It's going to be a matter of Cal choosing which 5 star recruits he wants at Kentucky moving forward.

    BTW: I think that Calathes and Patterson are both better SEC players than JM.

    To be continued...

    That is the best way I look at it. Patterson could still go pro and Cousins could possibly be this years Brandon Jennings if he doesn't qualify.

    Orton could be a big loss long term, I was hoping he would play a decent role this year coming off the bench and be a major contributor his sophomore year when Cousins and Patterson would likely be gone. Guess that isn't the case.
