Which, by the way, is the OFFICIAL ladder of March Madness! A quick post before talking way too much about game 1 of the ECF:
Many people out there were skeptical when Kentucky hired John Calipari away from Memphis to make their program relevant again. He kind of seems like a shady guy and a snake oil salesman who lives his life in a moral and ethical gray area. But let me tell you something, joy-boy...
UK is going to the Final Four next year. Mark it down. You heard it here first. Shit, how about this, if Jodie Meeks returns (which he probably will since he isn't a first round pick eventhough he can shoot the lights out of Rupp Arena) the Cats will win it all next year. I'm sticking my neck out on the line here and I don't give a fuck if you point and laugh.
Calipari already returns a dominant scorer in Meeks (again, I think he comes back) and a decent PF in Patrick Patterson. He brings in two of the best big men in the country with DeMarcus Cousins and Daniel Orton. And the big coup for UK was landing PG John Wall from Tobacco Road. Wall is being compared to Derrick Rose. Calipari, in less than TWO MONTHS, has put together the best recruiting class in the country. Amazing. And the guy can flat out coach. The dribble drive motion offense is fantastic and he already has the players to run it.
Sure, Kentucky will be young but I don't care. These guys are loaded and cranky commenter, Seal, is going to get a boner watching these kids dominate the SEC this winter. College hoops talk in May, you ask? Fuck yeah we're talking college hoops. Any time I can shoot off some weirdo prediction, you better believe that I'm going to. College hoops is just better when Kentucky is good and I think that that we're back to that again. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to googling, "ashley judd topless". Thank you.
