    You guys must have had ESPN muted. Vitale said during the game that Cal would be there.

    And look what you missed.

    I'll never be a member of the Dick Vitale Hate Club. He earned quite a bit of goodwill with me when, while discussing the brackets with the ESPN analysts prior to the 2015 NCAA Tournament, he said "You can have the entire field, as long as I get Kentucky."

    I mute every game, usually not because of the announcers but because I find it lessens the stress

    Williamson reminds me more of Barkley than anyone I have ever seen...he may be better than Charles

    Agree. Barkley is usually remembered late in his NBA career but when he was young he was quick as a cat,

    Nobody said they were watching him play. They did say Cal was watching him play. So I guess Cal = glutton for punishment?

    As for THE player I wanted at UK more than anyone else, I would lean towards Wiggins. You put Wiggins in that lineup instead of Young (with Young being first off the bench for the 2/3 spots), UK would've been monstrous. Yeah, I firmly believe they would've taken losses, but I also feel we would've won the championship.

    If Cal thought he had zero shot at Zion then I don’t think he wastes his time going to watch him. Just food for thought.

    Zion has serious basketball skills, love to have him, but we will be ok without him. Basketball skills are seriously lacking with our team this year.

    Zion likes a big time football atmosphere that eliminates us

    I'm telling you guys, this Clemson assumption was way too early to think it's the automatic call. I'm still not fully buying it, and recruiting is a tough business to follow. I've seen enough to know that closing the book this early could just as easily be misdirection for amusement.

    It's because Cal still thinks there's a reason to be there.

    But he doesn’t play football. And he should go to Bama since they made Clemson look like a bunch of frauds.

    He wouldn’t go see a guy he has no shot at on a sat after a road win: it’s not being a douche it’s doing what he can. If zion isn’t coming to UK why would cal waste his time??? Must think there’s a shot

    [laughing] @ basketball star wants to be at a big time football program.

    Earlier today it was because of his mom.

    Earlier than that, today, Clemson "has a good basketball program".

    I'm loving this.
