Senior Day, again... But with a different spin!


   Don't know how many of you have seen this, but Mark Story has an interesting piece on the LHL about Senior Day.  What's different from what has been discussed around here after the jump...

Here's what I found different in this article than what we've discussed here on ASoB:

If mega-star freshmen Wall and Cousins already know they are going to put their names in the NBA Draft, it would actually be smart for UK and John Calipari to announce that in advance of Sunday's game.

The reason is that the NCAA Tournament brings with it both heavy national media presence and an open-locker room policy. So the UK star freshmen are going to get asked the "are you turning pro?" question one gazillion times during the NCAAs if they haven't cleared it up before March Madness.

So if they know the answer is yes, saying so now would both allow Kentucky to honor them Sunday and would ultimately help keep the focus on the Cats' bid to win the national title by removing all the pros speculation

I had never really thought about this from this perspective...  I don't agree with it, but it's interesting nonetheless!  Personally I think it's really way too early for the guys to make this type of monumental decision that will affect the rest of their lives.  That decision is going to be "pressure" enough, let alone having to make it while trying to win ballgames too...

Your thoughts??
