I can't help but believe that had he stayed at UK for one more year he'd be in a much much better position other than eating at Burger King with his pops.

    Disagree. He blew his knee out. He does that at UK, how is he better off?

    To me, it's not at all unreasonable to criticize a coach for individual games or even a season. EVERY coach can be criticized in that manner.

    But Anderson, while referencing the UCONN game, is talking about Cal's overall body of work. And that is stupid.

    He'd be better off simply because he'd actually have a network of support behind him now. He's pretty much blackballed by UK now for not going to class once he declared for the draft and cost UK a scholarship. Now that he isn't playing the game what happens if he never plays again? I know somewhere he won't get any love and that is in Lexington, KY. The support of BBN is phenomenal when you are loved by BBN. Dudes are taken care of for forever. He won't be. That alone is huge for a guy with no degree and is done playing basketball.

    If he stays at UK who says he blows out his knee? Whole different set of circumstances takes place had he stayed.

    This is off topic but are we still pretending like your a different poster or is PP gone for good? I can never keep up with these things.

    Orton is one player I feel like probably should have stayed, but I have a hard time believing that Calipari also pushed him out the door.

    DA loses me on the criticism of the one and done. If that rule wasn't in place most of these guys would have gone straight to the NBA out of high school.

    [QUOTE=Randy Parker;5502715]If I was a first round pick or if my son was, I'd most likely encourage them to leave early if the opportunity was there.

    They do, and therein lies the problem.
