    I was looking for the UL players drafted. I just couldn't find any after a long search.

    Here's the video of Kanters interview after he was drafted. All UK fans should love this.

    Kanter's praise of UK's fans and dedicating the season for them should make Calipari's next recruiting DVD. He couldn't have ask any more from him.
    Knight had to be squirming a bit when saw some guys go ahead of him. If he had fallen to 10th or lower I would say there would have been some serious 2nd guessing going on about being in the draft.
    I was happy to see Liggins drafted. I didn't think he would be and hopefully he can stick.
    I read that teams passed on Knight because of his refusal to work out against Kemba Walker, but I think it has more to do with the foreign players.

    Kanter will probably be the only international player from this draft to take the court THIS season. The rest are more likely "draft and stash" players who have teams who hold their rights until the buyout becomes more manageable.

    Case in point with the Bulls and Mirotic. He will likely be overseas for four years and when Carlos Boozer's contract is up, his replacement is ready to step in.

    Nine players have been drafted in the past two season from Kentucky.

    Four players have been drafted in the past nine seasons by Louisville.

    If you want the definition of "Players first", look at the University of Kentucky.

    I read that about UL. Another nice recruiting fact to use.

    Coach Cal signed a 2 year extension this week.

    Hope we keep adding years in perpetuity.

    Did the NCAA rule that it was actually 1 year and 360 days?

    So Who's Your Red, should IU fans rush the court if they beat UK this season in Bloomington? Read that from an IU fan on Peegs...

    I figure if you rush for Illinois, you gotta rush for Kentucky.

    I'm not a rushing the court snob. I say they rush the court if they happen to beat SE Maryland State Tech. For Kentucky, they'll burn down the town.

    Jeff Goodman predicts UK will get Shabazz Muhammad... Would be a hell of a pick up.

    Will have to beat out AZ and UCLA.

    Supposedly brand loyalty is the question for Muhammad. He is an Adidas guy which is why people are speculating UCLA.

    I think we get at least one of Muhammad, Ricky Ledo, and Archie Goodwin.

    Kids now base choice of college on what type shoe they wear there? Wow.

    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

    I think that shoe stuff is wayyyy overplayed.

    Who does John Wall rep and where did he go to college?
