I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.

    I’m surprised Nerlens Noel wasn’t at least a projected 3rd teamer, but whatever

    • Anthony Vicars

      That is hard to believe…


    wow one one cat wat the heck is peyton siva doing in there he is so far from a first -third teamer wowwwww nerlens needs to be at least second by far

      Siva is good, but her really gets on my nerves.

    So SN thinks Siva is tied for the second best pg in the country when in fact the only reason they beat Florida in the NCAA finals was siva was in foul trouble and had to sit the final minutes.

      Siva is good, but he’s definitely not worth all the press he gets. Just my opinion.
