News that hits home
How did UK do in the tourney this yr with all those Mickey D's AA's?
Oh thats right...drive on with your bad self now.
I'm not saying there isn't some guy out there named Keith Jenkins. I'm just saying one doesn't work for ESPN. You can't just add those letters on to your name and make yourself credible. Do you trust anyone's tweets who claims he works for a company he doesn't actually work for?
Welcome the new generation of domination.
I never said the ESPN stuff was legit. I don't know either way. But "Derek" said the entire Linked In page was a fraud & I was providing evidence that wasn't an accurate statement.
Follow me on Twitter - @CMD_77
Not as good as the previous three years when MCDonald's AA's led Kentucky to an Elite 8, Final 4, & National Title. How did that three year run work out for us?
Florida State sucks. Everyone knows this. Including Wiggins.
He's probably laughing about the idea of playing for Hamilton and that crappy program.
If you go look at the Kentucky whatever articles there's nobody in the picture that looks like this dude. This is all fraudulent.
You have a unicorn for your picture. That is all.
I've seen this Twitter response on several message boards now. Like many have pointed out, Jenkins doesn't appear to be a known commodity with ESPN journalists. Not to mention, he is very vague about when this announcement will occur, "...now through mid-May." Either he just got the break of a lifetime with finding a legitimate source to advance his status with ESPN or he is just trying to get hits with an educated guess since FSU has always been in the picture. Who knows with Wiggins since he's been pretty good at keeping tight-lipped about where he's going? He may very well end up at FSU, but my point is I'm somewhat cautious of taking this Jenkins guy's informational leak as the gospel.
The mods said this type of "news" was going to happen. As usual, they are right. Expect more "news".
All I know is other fanbases sure do have a short memory considering 3 of the last 4 years those all Americans have only have sent UK to three straight elite eights, two straight final fours and that's right a national title. Plus people forget or chose to forget our best player got hurt and had he stayed healthy who knows how far Kentucky goes.
Tell you what FSU fan or KU fan I can guarantee you will once again find out that Kentucky is one of if not the best program going next year.
LOL. So some guy posts some random articles on a site no one has ever heard of and you've provided "evidence" of what exactly? Yes, the entire Linkedin page is a fraud. It gives credits of being a producer and reporter for ESPN news for the past several years. No one by that name has worked at ESPN. I.e. fraud.
Not sure why you're defending him though "CMD77" (see, I can randomly put your user name in quotation marks too for no apparent reason).
I have never said Kentucky isn't a great basketball program. You said FSU wouldn't make the tourney next year if we land Wiggins, and I said we would. We missed out on the tourney this past year just like you guys so why act like we suck so bad for missing out when you did the same thing? I realize Kentucky is a great basketball school and am not arguing that Kentucky won't go deep in the tourney next year. I'm just stating that if FSU lands Wiggins, we will at least make the tourney where you said we wouldn't

That's not unreasonable at all. And I agree that they'll most likely make the tourney. But the odds are against them to accomplish anything meaningful once they get there.
Wildcatfan, I can't see what you posted if you're replying back to me
I say, let's not all turn this into an FSU vs. UK argument. There's way too much of that going on in this thread. It's nearly impossible to predict what will happen in a basketball season. Look at our squad this year. We should have been a tournament team and we weren't. Wichita State should not have been a Final Four team but they were. Anything can happen. In the meantime, both our schools will be sitting around like a chubby girl at the prom... hoping Wiggins picks us to dance with
Just wanted to say that I and many in BBN like and respect FSU and its fans. Apologies if this did not come through here clearly enough.
To be honest I do too. I apologize for the other comment I made in this thread. I shouldn't have responded to the troll. We like that fans of other programs feel they can come here and have a rational discussion.
The dumbiest person in the world. He knows nothing, got cut down by Wiggins himself, told the guy that he's not family and doesn't know crap. Minter you have to find people with better backgrounds so when they make a stupid twitter posts you will know it. He's already taken his account down, probably a troll media guy who hates us.
Wow, the late great florida shoes university over here bad mouthing our basketball program when fla shoes u, hasn't been relevent since the seventies in basketball. You must in your 50's to remember that. lol
Well lets see. UK had what 3 MC D Allamericans who played the last what 8 games of the yr with no upper class talent to help them and to bolt no PG to leeeeeeeeed them. UK will not have that prob next yr. With or without Wiggs UK will have a great shot to win it all. Wiggs must choose this does he want to win it all in Coll b4 he goes to the NBA. Or not.
He will have yrs to win it all at the next stop, but only a few have a NCAA trophy when they retire from the NBA.
Ha. Nice catch Uklaw82. I've been saying over and over this guy was a fraud and yet "some people" want to defend a ghost. Looks like putting out info about Wiggins caught the attention of the real guys at ESPN and they forced him to remove the fake Twitter.
The defense, as they say, rests.
In this case it would be, "the prosecution rests your honor"... "Your honor, your honor"
People are actually replying seriously to a guy with a unicorn as his avatar. Now thats funny.
