(2019) SF Keion Brooks Jr. to Kentucky

Recommended Posts

We sure do have a lot to say about a KENTUCKY recruit. I was hoping this thread wouldn’t be on the front page anymore. 

5 stages of grief. We are dug in on stage 4 for some. Stage 5 might take a while for those guys.

I felt this one was over when his dad said "time to make a selfish decision" or something along those lines. Dad wanted him at UK all along and got what he wished for.
Obviously dad thinks kentucky is going to make him a lottery pick.

A minor setback for them, a highlight of the decade for us.

Never said anything about it being a setback or highlight. It was just odd, being an IU fan and all, that he’d forget that tourney game. However, I’m not really that surprised.

NCAA Championships over the last 20 years.
Kensucky: 1
Kansas: 1

For having top 5 recruiting classes almost every year I'd expect better results.

As it's been said before, nobody remembers who came in second.

Maybe not specifically 2nd but people generally remember which teams have post season success and runs and which don’t.

We don’t have to hang another banner to make me happy.

I just want annual top 5 or 6 seed in the NCAA. Eventually an annual top 4 seed would be my goal. Winning the whole thing requires a lot of luck and I understand that part.

Again, if my teams loaded every year with 5*'s, I'm expecting more. Luck or not.

Myself, I'm looking for more than a participation trophy. The O&D rule has killed college basketball.

It may have coincided with our extending down time but I think college basketball proves every spring that it is healthy and one of the great events.

Indiana 0. How about Final Fours and Elite 8’s? Sweet sixteens since this fan base loves those? Tourney appearances in general?

Agreed, need to get in better graces with Adidas and agents so we can become a pro prep team without a salary cap.

The way I see it, there are two groups of champions. The first group is the teams who have a strong class that peaks at the right time, everything comes together, the stars align, they get good matchups and they cash in. The second group is the ones who plug away year after year until they finally get one. The other bluebloods (except maybe UCLA for the time being) are in the second group. For the last two decades, we've been in the first. Every three or four years we have a team that can make noise, but the years in between, we usually suck.
