    No way. They beat us on Bolden, we beat them on Gabriel. Do you know how badly Duke wanted Wenyen? He even admitted that himself in a tweet Thursday.

    You don't think K wanted Anthony Davis, KAT, John Wall, etc..?

    I know it wasn't head-to-head with Duke -- but you know NO ONE gave us a chance with Bam, right? NO ONE.

    Now Cal is angry. Would YOU want to recruit against an angry and even MORE motivated Cal?

    Think about this: K claims he wants to coach for 5 more years. Cal claims he wants to coach for maybe 15 more. That could be 10 years with no K. You think Cal is scared of Capel if he replaces K? Please. Who would you rather be? We're still competing with Duke and WE have a coach who can go (if he wants to) for another 15+ years. They don't.

    Agree,but I would add the advantage of being head coach of USA Basketball as well. That's unfair to every competitor imo.

    OK you're a Duke fan. It's OK - but just admit it.

    It happens, I'm sure Washington thought Terrance played them big-time, Maryland got hurt over the twins, Patterson waited to the last second to pick us over Florida...it happens. The TCU shirt Bolden wore was punk-ass though.

    We are not Washington, Maryland, nor Florida. We are UK and we should not have to beg a guy to make a decision to come here nor should Cal allow the program to be held hostage waiting on kids who want to build up a buzz. If playing for UK is not enough of a attention builder for them they can go elsewhere and we can chose kids that are still 5 starts that are ranked a bit lower.
    Nobody likes to admit we got played again, it happened with Wiggins, Zimmerman, Brown, Swanigan. It's 3 years in a row we have ended up a player short of having a championship team because we passed waiting for kids that basically were just leading us on.

    The life of a troll is a lonely road. UK has the #1 class and we got some douche telling Cal how to recruit. We were 38-1 in 2015 but evidently that's not good enough. We've probably gone 50-50 or better against Duke and their built advantages with being ESPN's and the NCAA's darling.

    wah wah wah poor little baby got his feewings hurt cause Cal don't accept his phone calls no more for his recruiting prowess.

    Go play in traffic, take a long walk off a short pier, or whatever other analogy gets the message through your primitive skull.

    Typical Cal jock snuffer answer, we get recruiting titles while Duke gets real titles. Cal recruits by ranking and K recruits by skillset to have a team that can actually hit free throws, while we get guys who shoot 40%. Free throws alone have cost Cal 2 titles.
    Bottom line is the failures of Skal, Lee, and poy have definitely hurt our recruiting.

    In Cal's time here even with all the recruiting success Duke and UConn have won 2 titles to our 1. So either Cal is not coaching these guys up very well or he is a bit off in his recruiting.
    Duke in 2015 smoked a Wisconsin team that we could not seem to get a shot off against for 3 trips down the floor.
    Getting the number 1 class every and not winning is getting old as well as you can be sure other schools are telling recruits about it.

    I'm glad everybody sees this asshat for what he is. I was arguing with him yesterday not understanding that's what he wanted me to do so he could continue his anti-Cal, ratface love fest. Ignorant are ignored.

    You tell em Bungalow Bill. Hope you are still a "Cal Pal" next April when Duke will most likely be winning another title.
