Afternoon News Update

Calipari has spoken, according to multiple sources on Twitter. Your new starting point guard, for now, is Archie Goodwin:

I have two observations:

  1. Goodwin may be learning the spot, but he's learning it fast, and;
  2. There is no harder player for an opposing point guard to defend than Goodwin. In fact, as far as I can tell, he's indefensible by any current college player.
  • I think this is stupid. I just do. Your mileage may vary.

Alan Cutler reports that Harrow did not consider leaving UK:

So all that Stacey Poole talk we kept hearing was just Wildcats fans being typically paranoid. That's not a criticism, just a fact. "He's probably just saying that" in 3-2-1 ...

But he does bring up some interesting points -- not terribly convincing, but not completely looney, either.
  • Heh II:
  • I'm for it, if only because it makes opposing fans so mad.
  • Heh III:

I just have to say it's nice that the coaching search is over, and we can sit back and thumb our nose at everyone else, if only for a little while.
