    You people are ridiculous...Cal goes and gets the BEST players. He doesn't just go for the one and dones, and he doesn't just go for kids that will stay a few years. He goes for the best! It's up to them to decide whether or not they'll stay. You people are hypocrites..if you had the chance to be drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft and make millions of dollars at age 19 or 20 you would jump at the chance. And how is Cal hurting UK's tradition? If anything, he is helping it by bringing us back from Billy G's horrible days to being the top program in the country. Just ridiculous, you're jealous.

    Big deal. Just another future NBA camp wanna-be. MAKE 'em graduate, then go on to NBA. Why should the taxpayers support the NBA camp?

    Wow, how do alot of people get up to just make it through everyday life? most comments on any board people slam Kentucky Basketball, unless of coarse you're a Cats fan (which i am), You outsiders slam Calipari for coaching success, but hey everyone is entitled there opinions,, I hear alot that Kentucky wont win a title with Coach Cal and the one and dones, Maybe they will Maybe they wont,, my money is on they will (more than one), but even if not I can live with 30 win seasons, SEC titles, final fours, even elite eights,, More than likely that is much more than the outsiders teams are accomplishing. (GO CATS)

    Skeeter, I believe I am detecting a little sarcasm in your post. I really have no clue what you mean by the comment, "I was worried that he wouldn't be a godly." However, because you felt strong enough about this topic to mock Jesus by pretending He would be even remotely interested in UK sports, I will assume you are taking a jab at those who are interested. Why do people even get on here and post comments about topics they couldn't care less about? Why don't you just stick with the stories on the main page instead of reviewing the sports section? You have to know when you click on sports that much of the news will refer to UK sports! Stick with your main page stories that focus on pillheads getting arrested and drunk drivers killing innocent people. For some people, sports is an outlet away from all of the negative news topics out of eastern Kentucky.

    Anon nailed it. Once again, just as you did with Pitino, UK sold it's soul for a coach with zero personal commitment to the tradition. You may as well get used to what you got last year, at least until Cal's ego gets the best of him and he just "KNOWS" he can get it right in the NBA this time ! Then you'll get to spend a couple of years on probation when all the dirt starts popping up. If UK really has this great tradition, are you telling me there isn't ONE alumni out there who could come in and dedicate his life to the program he loves ? Sad.

    Praise Jesus that he's coming to UK!! I was so worried that he wouldn't be a godly. Thanks WKYT for keeping us appraised of the important news.

    I just hope some of them can actually shoot the ball instead of just make flashy moves.

    I love my big blue basketball. It was fun and exciting last year but hopefully this class will have some players who might stay more than one year so we can enjoy them longer, Dont get me wrong I dont blame those kids for one second for going because I would probably leave my job for a huge contract like they will get. I hope the best for all of them and will be watching their progress in the bigs. I hope they do as well as Rhondo, who is a superstar. I hope things stay clean here and we get that championship soon.

    Another ONE AND GONE. Already been in two schools. Why waste UKs time? Another NBA training camp for Cal, who is making LOADS off the NBA. Yea, he's a #1 coach, for the NBA. Stupid of Kentucky to pay money like this and the idiots can't fininsh school. Quit offering scholarships and give the money to deserving students, not basketball training campers who quickly move on. Yea, UK will be a TOP 20 school, in the NBA.
