Pretty impressive list for Big Blue Madness:
Aaron and Andrew Harrison
The amount of talent that's going to be at BBM this season, across several classes, is just unreal. We are in sooo good with 2013 and on kids. (Not that we've been struggling so far in recruiting, LOL)
I think 2012 is going to be a down class due to uncertainty. For all we know Davis, Teague, Wiltjer, and MKG could all return if the NBA enacts a two and done rule. I doubt a Shabazz Muhammad would come in to ride the pine to Gilchrist or Lamb (if he returns).
2013 looks so much more promising. The Harrison twins, Walker, Noel if he doesnt commit early, etc.
Guess who posted this today...
Just got done hooping at UK with the team, and alum Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins. Great run! Big Blue Nation!
In other words, that snake charmer, liar, shady coach for the Kentucky Wildcats just broke a NCAA rule:
Does anybody else think probation is coming?
I have a buddy who works as a high school talent evaluator that I lean on from time to time.
He says, next to Shabazz, he'd rather have Goodwin than anyone. Athletic, can handle, will be a dead-eye shooter with work, attacks the rim with reckless abandon, and utterly fearless. He's also willing to play defense and has some defensive aptitude.
Of course, this guy also insists the time of the big center is gone and everyone should stack their team with athletic 6'7" guys who can handle, so he may be a little biased.
Does this put Kentucky out of the running for Shabazz, or will the two coexist? I realize the 2 and 3 spots are interchangeable in Calipari's system, but Goodwin's 6'5", a 'tweener SF/SG and Shabazz, by all accounts, wants to play out front as a SG.
Does it all boil down to semantics?
And what does this do with the Perry Ellis decision today? Is he likely KU-bound, as he's been rumored to be since the get-go? (Probably, IMO.) I think Ellis is underrated, personally, as he simply does what it takes. He's a gamer and a winner. Those are two traits often overlooked by AAU scouts.

Looks like Ricky Three Stacks and Cal are going at it again:
