    I have heard that Lamb is not going to class and may pull an Orton. Can anyone confirm this? My buddy heard it from a banker in Lexington.

    The latest I've heard on that issue was that Cal put him back in line basicly telling him that if he wasn't going to go to his classes that Cal would kick him off the team.

    Article in LH today said the he stated in the locker room after making the first statement..."righ now". Sorry don't have time for a link...going to church.
    Looks like he is trying to take back the first statement of he was staying.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in what any kid says right now.

    I look for Knight to return as well. He puts emphasis on academics as well as basketball. This season Knight became a sophomore academically and I think that I heard he was going to summer classes. Knight could possibly be a junior academically next season. I could be wrong but imo he will stay at least one more season and work on graduating early, something along the lines of P. Patterson.
    I also believe that Jones will go out after this season. Jones could get drafted on potential and I just don't think that he wants to play college basketball. jmo

    That is what my post meant. He isn't ready to find someone willing to take a chance on him.

    That's what I was thinking... I didn't even know that was a possibility for Lamb.

    IMO it's dumb for any kid that doesn't have a top 20 guarantee from multiple teams to leave. A 2nd round contract is not worth it, the thing isn't even guaranteed. If you are a first rounder you get 3 years automatically with a team option for year 4.
