I'm sorry but this is bull. I know I am extremely biased because I went to UK, but honestly I hated what was happening at first when Calipari arrived. I was not a fan of kids coming in and leaving, especially when it seemed like every recruit that came in left right away. But in reality we don't employ a One and Done system. Why did we the title in 2012? Because kids came back. Not really the definition of a one and done system. This is the worst year anyone can make this statement about UK. Cauley-Stein and Poythress (Juniors), Harrison Twins, Johnson, and Lee all came back. Not really the definition of one and done...When the draft arrives this summer, I expect only one Kentucky freshman to be drafted. Why would Towns not leave when he is almost guaranteed to be a top 2 pick? His stock will never be higher. One and dones are not ruining the game and after all, Kentucky isn't the only one doing this...Duke will have more one and dones this year but it's okay for them to do that because it's not Kentucky. I do wish the NBAPA would change their rules but it is what it is. The game has changed, and I'm sorry that Calipari recruits better than anyone else. Last night sucked, it was a tough loss to take but this team was 38-0. No one had ever done that before. Last time I checked this was great for college basketball, more eyes had been on this tournament than ever before.
Sorry rant over.
In pre-game one analyst called out Devin Booker's weak defense and I have to be honest, I never noticed it before but the Badgers did seem to take it to Booker.
It is hard to get a true feel for the personalities of celebrities and athletes. but I've never liked the Harrison brothers and I think Andrew showed his true colors after the game skipping the handshake and his press conferences comments when he thought the mic was off. Not to be completely anti-Kentucky, I really like Willie Cauley Stein and Karl Anthony Towns.
Agreed, Devin Booker was awful and I couldn't figure out why they kept him in so long. He had been okay throughout the season, but Wisconsin had too many great offensive options and really exposed his weakness. I also am very disappointed with Andrew, there is no need for that crap. I know you're upset but that was unnecessary and I lost a lot of respect for him. I wouldn't mind seeing him leave now.
Wisconsin wanted it more last night and they are to be congratulated on a great victory. UK had the chance to seal the victory up but those THREE straight shot clock violations were just pathetic. And the officiating didn't matter, yes that was a shot clock violation and would have changed how the rest of the game would have been played out but UK didn't make the shots it needed to when they had the chance. It was a great season, still love my Cats.
