    Lol probably the hair or something that makes him seem a little off. I could get that, even going to school here. He's just too clean cut and there aren't really any faults you can put your finger on, so you have to figure something's up somewhere. Dude's pretty straight up with recruits though, I both love and hate that about him...

      He just seems really sneaky. Knowing that Coach Cal is a total snake, I cant help but wonder.

      • Eric Bledsoe's coach says he's down to UK and Memphis, visiting both this weekend.

        John Wall is still a man of mystery.

        And man did Gillispie do some bizarre things here. He really blasted Meeks apparently and I have no clue why, no wonder Meeks slowed down towards the end of the season. He still lives in Lexington and frequents events lol.

        There was also a booster luncheon today in which Calipari said he recruits 'givers and not takers' and that there is a 'taker' begging to come here but we won't take him. Lance Stephenson I'm guessing...

          • I'm wondering if the coach is right, I don't know why he'd cut Florida so quickly. May have been turned off that they started recruiting John Wall while Calipari went and visited his home. There's apparently a decent chance we could get Wall and Bledsoe which would be insane. Bledsoe also has a grades question, not sure if that's cleared up yet. He was apparently going to play here if Gillispie stayed.

              They're totally different dudes that bring in different players as far as I know. Look how Tyreke Evans' recruiting went. Wright told him if he wanted to be one and done to go to Memphis, and if he wanted to be part of a family to come to Villanova.

              Now I have no idea what things are like behind the scenes, and the Villanova program is so squeaky clean seeming I could see why somebody thinks something is up. But as far as I know all Wright does is sell the family atmosphere here, solid academics, and hard work gets you play time. That and the fact that we were the first people to really be on a lot of the players we get (Kennedy, Yarou, and Cheek I all remember saying that, I think Armwood too). And he doesn't like to bring in one and dones.

              • I think the Italian coaches get tagged with the 'snake oil salesman' line. Rightfully so really, the guys are good in front of a mic and can sell their programs. See Wright, Calipari and Pitino for starters. Pitino is the biggest used car salesman of the group, worked out pretty well when he was at UK though so I'm not complaining :D

                I'm fine with Cal bringing in one and dones, it's no problem to me since they'll be top 10 guys. They just need to fall in the framework of the team or not be here, it's encouraging to know he won't go after Stephenson. Gillispie had started to and I was never a fan.

                  Got my fingers crossed lol.

                  Jarvis will probably return if he does not get a lottery guarantee, so it looks good for us.

                    He'd be a good get for you, but do you really want to set your program back a couple of years? USC&UCLA could really use him and that fact that they want nothing to do with him now is a giant red flag, especially since USC coach Tim Floyd had no problems with Mayo's shady partners, but won't touch sidney.

                    He's talented as hell though. One and done'r but he'll perform.

                    • From what I read, Sidney's father didn't want him caught up in the Mayo/Bush circus and his son becoming the scapegoat. I think USC is better off without him. That's too bad that Bledsoe won't be coming to Duke because I don't see us getting Wall. Bledsoe may not even qualify so it won't be that big of a loss.

                      • I think if Wall cuts it to 3 it would be UK, Miami (FL) and Duke (maybe Florida). Should happen today or tomorrow hopefully.

                          The other reason that it's not a problem is Cal is just going to bring in more top 10 guys the next year. He should be able to reload year after year. I see no problem bringing in one and done guys if you can continue to do so like Cal can.

                          Lance needs to make up his mind. The guy's just all over the place and really milking this decision for way more than it's worth. Especially given he's just going to stay at his school for a year and then play in the NBA anyway, it's not like he has to make the huge "where am I going to spend the next four years of my life?" decision. Still think he should go to SJU where he can just do his thing for a year and get out.

                            Lance is going to declare last. The whole reason he's been delaying is because when he first annouced his declare date at Mcdonalds he thought everyone especially Wall would have declared by then, he wants to be the last guy to declare so there is no one after him to talk about.
