Rumors alleged to have come from Calipari and current players including Cousins and others, Daniel Orton gainsaying his own father -- it's just a bloody mess around here.
In my opinion, even the kids likely don't know what they are going to do, and if they do, they'll probably change their mind tomorrow morning. These are 18-21 year-old kids hashing out the rest of their lives right now, and the best thing for us to do is wait until we hear it from a representative of UK or the player/person making the decision.
For the record, here is some of the stuff that has been floating around. Don't sweat any of it, it will all take care of itself. It always does.
The Jon Hood Transfer Rumor Can Stop Now
Hood is not leaving, according to his father.
Kentucky reserve big man Daniel Orton will enter the NBA Draft, his father, Larry, said Wednesday. His son will not hire an agent so he can retain the option of returning to UK next season, the elder Orton said.
Daniel has since come out and declared this rumor to be false, at least as of this moment. There are all sorts of rumors about Orton around town, few of which make any sense.
Former Bishop McGuinness High School basketball standout and current Kentucky center Daniel Orton said reports of him declaring for the NBA Draft are premature.
Premature, but I do believe Orton will "test the waters." Too many comments from him suggest that as a likely outcome.
Dodson? Heh. I think Cousins, if he really said this, might be having a little fun with some overzealous reporters. But who knows?
