    I hope he enters the draft and never plays for those scumbags.

    Unlimited cash Cal strikes again. I'm really turned off to the whole recruiting scene. IMO it's dirtier than ever and NCAA is a joke who turns a blind eye to it but will nail programs who commit minor "infractions" that have no bearing on recruiting or a kid choosing a school. All the top 25 kids end up at the same 5 schools -- UK, Duke, Arizona, Kansas, UNC. The rest of the pack fight each other viciously to try to get one kid in the 26-35 range.

    Guys - for those who didn't follow the Diallo saga - this is LITERALLY the same story we had with Quade. The whole situation is eerily similar.

    I should clarify. Once Quade committed to UK we had no chance. I meant that Quade to us = Diallo to UConn.

    Now I feel better, that we weren't even that close, and that Uconn fans can feel even more miserable for a few days.

    Writing was on the wall with this kid -- surprised some Uconn fans are shocked at this. Should have learned from the Quade situation.

    No doubt. Once we didn't get Quade, we weren't gonna get Hami, no chance. And us missing on Quade is a similar to hurt to what UConn will feel losing Hami.

    Yeah and on draft night they'll announce him as being from Kentucky and Pay Pal Cal will be sitting there with him, hugging him and his family, saying how much he loves Hami, and then put another name on his wall that he "got" into the league...blah blah blah.

    So sick of these 5 stars going just down the road to UK. I did get to thoroughly enjoy, however, UofL beat UK this year. Was at that game and it was a rockin.

    So what? It works. Sucks for us but his method clearly works.

    Ironic thing is he could have gone to Storrs and probably got 30 minutes a game starting tomorrow and still declare for the draft in the summer. He'd rather practice against UK than play against the AAC.
