So UK started a run. They have kept it going.....I have been nauseous ever sense. But also I have tried to look on the bright side and if the worst case scenario happens and that silly school in Lexington actually wins it all than it means we have a chance, and a very good one I believe, to go into Rupp next year and beat the defending national champs on their court.... just sayin.
I also think if they don't win than some of the players, like Terrance Jones, might come back next year to try again since they were so close. (to a much lesser extent Knight, though I am 95% sure he will go to the NBA regardless). which will cause chaos with Cal's recruiting and could cause him to lose credibility with future recruits and immediately cause issues with PT for the kids coming in next year. Especially if kids WANT to come back and Cal tells them no you CAN'T..... isn't the education supposed to be the most important thing? - - serious loss of credibility if anything like this happens, and I am pretty sure ESPN and NCAA would be all over that. The emergence of players like Derrick Williams, Jimmer, Shelvin Mack, VCU's Rodriguez, etc. has definitely hurt the draft stock of a kids like Jones, Lamb, and Poole - who didn't really even play this year - compared to what it was coming out of high school and could cause them to consider coming back to chase a title again.
(Note: I know that people knew of Jimmer and Mack and others but I didn't really here about them being NBA talent as they are now considered, which fills up a potential draft board.....which is the core of my argument.... am I making sense?..... its Monday)
