WE GOT NERLENS!!!
Congrats on the recruit. Hope the qualification isn't as difficult as I've seen reported.
Amused by the IU fans who are offended by the shameful affront to the fine university experience of the One and Done's at Kentucky.
It's shameful alright, except when it was Eric Gordon, or when it will be Hanner Perea, or when it will be Gary Harris who IU went after hard.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
I haven't heard anything about a difficult qualification. He wouldn't have reclassified otherwise. You can always count on Thameltoe trying to be a wet blanket, however. Especially when it doesn't involve Syraccused.

The CatsPause is reporting Bennett is very close to joining the fun.
Flipped by it as they were showing some Noel highlights.
ESPN moron: "Noel is the best shot blocking high schooler since Greg Oden."
My wife: "I thought Anthony Davis... Guess he's old news isn't he?"
When all is said and done more is said than done.
It's a Nerlens Noel Thursday....

Funny twitter stuff:
At 5pm EST, Bazz has 32.7k followers and Noel has 24k.
Nerlens - 40,971
Bazz - 29,222
Noel's wingspan = 7'4" per draft express (same as Davis FWIW)
Looking at who we have and who may commit, still seems to lack a second point guard in case Harrow gets in foul trouble or whenever he needs a break. Is this correct or am I forgetting someone ?
Makes me wonder if Cal thinks/knows one of either Lamb or Teague is returning....(last year Lamb ran the point when Teague on bench)
Kentucky has only one shooter-- if you assume all five starters are indeed gone.
And, while he may be among the best shooters in America, Wiltjer can't do it alone. Look for shooters to sign or stay, one of the two.

I keep hoping Lamb gets a 2nd round projection and stays... hoping in vain, I'm guessing.
Goodwin and Poythress are both underrated shooters, esp. Poythress, IMO.
I think Poythress is better than Terrence Jones right now.
I've heard Harrow's shooting is much improved.
