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.

    maybe when they get to the nba some olders will smack em around and make them play as a TEAM

  • johnnie whitfield

    It sure is hard to argue Noel shouldn’t go with his stats the last couple of games… WOW Stat Sheet Stuffer as old Dickey V would say!! Poythress and Goodwin staying another year would be the “Jones/Lamb” combo we’re missing this year that would help lock down another championship. IMHO

  • Adam Treviño

    That’s great…so why aren’t we in the top 25 then?

  • travis madden

    No one on this ready to.go to the NBA the and he has to get better offensively

  • Frames Janco

    None of them are ready.
    Nerlens has played well thus far but needs an offensive game.
    Alex has untapped potential, but needs away to bring it out.
    Archie is getting close to something good, if Alex hits his stride, it will bring Archie out with him.
    Willie has all the right intangibles and a good sense of the game, just needs some polishing.

  • Tracy Whitaker

    Lamb was told the same thing last year and look where he went.If any of these guts want to leave early they should talk to Jones,Lamb,and teague and get their thoughts.

  • Russ

    I think WCS may not go. The other three almost certainly will, although I thought TJ was going for sure and we hung #8 when he came back for another year.

  • Andrew Chavarria

    Don’t leave us. Give us one more year.

  • Bryan Mills

    I bet they all go and id say by the end of the year WCS will be a top 10 pick.. Hes gonna be great! I used to hate seeing our players leave but it is gonna happen so Ive learned to embrace it … Now days I love watching Coach try to pull them together each year… It doesnt matter if they leave or not, we’ll be fine.

  • Rick Sawyers

    WCS will be another Daniel “don’t call me Randy” Orton ” if he leaves early. Hate to see any of these fellas in the “D” league.

  • Sharon Bays

    4 in the top 25 and lose to Baylor and Texas A/M ? Am I missing something here?

  • Melvyn Younger

    Noel is the only player on this team that can MAKE an NBA team. The rest are D league bound. Noel kind of reminds me of a young Pat Ewing. He’ll develop a decent low post game. The rest of these guys need to get their heads outta their…..
