    University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition

    Let's keep it going! There is no off-season when it comes to UK basketball.

    A good way to get this thread started:

    Who is the "impending commitment"?

    So tough to say... you would think either Uchebo or Lacey??? Perhaps DeAndre Daniels?

    Can't see Daniels since he has scratched Kentucky off the list. Lacey is supposedly going to visit Kansas and there is concern with grades.

    I don't know much about Uchebo but he would be a post presence we need.

    I think it's somebody for 2012 possibly. Hoping for Shabazz Muhammad.

    I'd kill for Jones and Liggins to come back. If all 3 decided to it'd be incredible. It's just a little depressing because of the fact that other schools have been able to return their studs.

    WMR Buckeye fans (still angry about the Tournament obviously) pointing fingers about one and dones is rich indeed. Shall we start counting the One and Dones from OSU over the past several seasons? Where were all the Buckeye fans whining about One and Dones when they were playing for the National Championship?
    My statement earlier about the OSU one and dones is that they were required to attend class because their 2nd quarter grades were due right as the tournament was starting. If they were not attending class they would have been ruled ineligible just prior to the NCAA tournament.

    As for OSU's one and dones I don't like it either. The only player that truly was ready to turn pro after his freshman season was Oden. You can teach that kind of size as well as defensive knowledge. Guys like Connely, Cook, Mullins, Kufos all could have benefited from staying.

    One and dones along and their class attendance is an issue in college basketball today. If someone enters the draft they don't really have the time the go through all the pre-draft combines, interviews, camps, etc. You would be hard pressed to find any underclassmen that is able to attend class with all that going on.

    Half-assed "non-apology" apology which is, of course, exactly what I expected from Bob Knight.

    Bob, apology not accepted. We know you still loathe Kentucky and don't worry the feelings are reciprocated fully.

    I still think Knight's instructional golf videos are the best!

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition

    The Kentucky Combine was in Lexington the past two days, and from the looks of things:

    Brandon Knight is gone. He was getting confrimation from teams to stay in the draft.

    Terrence Jones is borderline. I think it comes down to similar to what happened last year with UW-UK. Now its UK-NCAA and to be fair, he can do a lot by coming back and improving his draft stock. He could be 9-12 this year or possibly a top 3 next if he comes back.

    Liggins will probably be back. I don't think he can get any team to guarantee to take him late in the first round.

    On a side note, I did hear something about other teams wanting to send their players to the Kentucky Combine and Cal said no. I doubt Louisville would have with Terrence Jennings but I would feel bad if Kenneth Faried from Morehead State was turned away by Cal. I would have opened it up to any Kentucky school but Louisville, mainly because Pitino has the resources to do it himself.

    I think Terrence Jones could be CRAZY good next year.

    He could, but he really has a decision to make.

    Right now he is projected to go toward the end of the lottery. By coming back and putting together a consistent season and becoming a top option for this team, he could be a top 5 pick next year. He showed great potential early in the season to do just that, but once SEC play rolled around, he hit a wall.

    If he comes back and doesn't improve (doubtful), then he is in the mix with a whole slew of forwards coming out. His stock could really take a hit, especially if he is going up against Anthony Davis, Jared Sullinger, and Perry Jones.

    And the labor situation could be added to that mix as well.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
