Many UK fans told WKYT they're not surprised Coach Cal's starters decided to go pro. They still hate to see them leave!
If you walked into any bar near campus Tuesday evening, you saw five athletes on all the television screens. Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, and Marquis Teague sat in solidarity as their coach announced their plans to enter the draft.
"Not surprised at all. They didn't really come out and say it. I was kinda surprised at how anticlimactic it was," explained Local Taco server Julia Myers, "I have total faith in Coach Cal that he'll get us just as good a team as he has the past two years, so the games will definitely be just as fun."
"I thought Teague might come back, that was the only guy I thought for sure maybe we could have for another year," remarked fan Nate Johnson.
All five starters are already some of the most wanted players in the upcoming draft. UK fans though, are ready to welcome their next team to the Big Blue Nation.
"They're gone and we're all about Nerlens now," shouted fan Buster Worsham.
