"Let's double these..." he said. Obviously Cal knows what Kentucky fans want. The question is, will the man commit himself to delivering?
Look at the layups, the 10 foot jumpers, the free throws. We won over 30 games last season with freshmen, and stand to win around 25 this year with more freshmen. Barring a lockout, we can only guess the number of wins we'll accrue next year with - you guessed it - freshmen. We'll get highlight reel slam dunks but no 3's. We want the April 3 - the kielbasa, the salami, The Banner.
Listen John my man - Kentucky fans, come early April, don't care if they have 30 victories so long as they finished the season with a victory in that week. The Banner, John! You won't double up on the rafters at Rupp with freshmen, and believe it or not, Kentucky is the place where you'll find that 30 wins don't count for a hill of beans without that banner.
Whatever your long term strategy is, if it doesn't include you keeping the promise to try and double the banners, you'll find what Bush#41 found out - "no new taxes" indeed!
