OK, since it is sports and video day at PB figured I’d let out a virtual holler about something I’m a bit excited about: The resurgence of Kentucky basketball to it’s proper place. No more football schools doing the roundball thing. Expect the universe to go back to it’s previous configuration of Big Blue dominance. Beginning…uh…now. Time for the rat bastards to be reunited with the land of the also-rans. I give you Billy Clyde:
Billy Clyde. There really is no better name for a Kentucky coach, really. If his last name was Thompson, you could mark us down for the win right now. Kids are gonna start flocking to the Bluegrass State again. From Texas even. 4 days out he already has Gerry Vilarino headed this way. GJ is a 4 star ’09 guard 14th rated in his class. Huge pickup. Getting word also that we may well land top junior Willie Warren, and top-5 freshman KC Miller. If that wasn’t enough good news, we also hear that DeAndre Jordan, who committed to TexasA&M, will likely try to get out of his National LOI and follow Gillispie to Kentucky. Jordan would be a straight up coup! Then there is Jai Lucas and Pat Patterson (Patterson is way iffy, but Lucas is a possibility – though they are rumored to be a package deal). I’m also hoping we’ll pick up the just named KY Mr. Basketball Stephon Pettigrew. Kid grew up in my stomping grounds of Elizabethtown.
Ah. All feels right with the world.
