Baylor’s Isaiah Austin Runs His Mouth about Kentucky

Baylor center Isaiah Austin has filled the Kentucky Basketball locker room with enough bulletin board material that Jerry Jones might have to put another one.

Check this out:

“Coming out of high school, everyone wants to go with the hype,” he said. “Kentucky was the hype. … I made the best decision for me coming here. Coach [Scott] Drew is just as great a coach as coach [John] Calipari. We have just as great as faculty and staff. … Kentucky is not better than us in any way, shape or form.”

Welp, I guess we will all find out the answer to this Friday night.

    I am wondering what prompted him to respond in this manner. Was he replying to a question from a reporter? While I have absolutely no issue with a young man attending another school because he feels it is in his best interest, I do feel the young man may be a bit biased in comparing Calipari to Drew and saying it is a draw. Drew is a fabulous recruiter, but is showing to be a suspect X and O coach.

  • Jason Bolton

    No need to get all upset BBN,it’s just another case of standing up for your own and being proud of your program. No one has better players, coaches or facilities than UK, but I would never expect another player to say “Yeah, this place is a crap hole, I wish I went to college X”

  • Allan Taylor

    You Mr. Austin and the rest of your teammates had better play the game of your life to beat this team. Coach Ed Cooley of Providence said the same thing last week and you see what the end result of that was. They played their best game and still got beat badly. When you play Kentucky this year, you have to play your absolute best to have a chance. If you play average or have an off shooting nigh, your chances of victory are slim and none and slim just left the country. Have fun getting humbled!

  • Craig Elstun

    Can somebody tell this jackwagon that Kentucky has 8 more National Championships than his team does and Calipari has 4 times the number Final Fours as his coach does!? Not to mention, UK has more WINS than any other team in the history of College Basketball! Yes, we are UK and we are better than your school! Take off your rose colored glasses you idiot! BTW, thanks for the bulletin board material! We’re gonna show you what that “hype” is all about!

  • Sue Payton

    I’m glad our team and coach don’t brag and carry on the way other teams do. Sometimes that can come back and bite you in the butt. Go Cats. Win or lose your the best.
