UConn is instantly a NC contender again because Drummond should be eligible immediately.

it makes the Hogs job going there a lot more difficult. Oh well it can only help prepare us for the SEC schedule.

sorry Gm you're wrong, he will be playing this year for the Huskies. It was kind of hard to miss the part about he'll be PLAYING THIS YEAR.

my bad, i am wrong there. wasnt he in the 2012 class? how the hell did he skip a year like that? usually that takes some notice. interesting. i would not be surprised if UConn is just going balls to the wall with their cheating now LOL i had not read the article so i was wrong.

He was. He could have chosen UK just as easily. My understanding he is a manchild. I think by going this route he gets in the NBA one year sooner.

His actions put Shabazz as the #1 2012 recruit. I know UK wants him, but I hear he is really considering UNLV.

UCLA is probably the slight fave.

I'm hearing that Shabazz has some irregularities and teams are backing off him.

I've not heard any of that. UK seems to be still recruiting him heavy. Archie Goodwin said he spoke to him after he committed in fact. What kind of irregularities are you talking about?

i was pissed we lost Kyle Anderson to UCLA. how would he and Shabazz even play together?

Muhammad wants to be a 2 and Anderson can play anywhere from the 1-4, but I think he'll play 3 at UCLA. They'll coexist easily.

Anderson is a 3 that wants to play 1. That is one thing I don't get. His NBA payday is as a 3.

agent involement, what is this Archie Goodwin you talk about? Hopefully his career is as successful a charlie sheen concert.

Archie is a 2 or 3 that wants to play 1. That is one thing I don't get. His NBA payday is as a 2 or 3.


And this is exactly what he was told by Mike Anderson up front. We didn't dilly-dally the kid around... CMA told him exactly what was going to happen, and the kid decided to go along with the 'smoke and mirrors' approach instead. To take it a step further, Ky Madden might've even played the 3-position the entire time KY was in our program (meaning a year or two if'n Anderson was dead-set on being a 2-guard)... Archie just straight up "SOLD OUT" his own instate program! And yes... "Sold Out", is definitely the correct term. :facepalm:

Sold out? Think you're laying it a little thick?

I actually think Anderson can play the 1 in college and the NBA. Think Penny Hardaway.
