Why should the NCAA care if a player spends his own independently earned money on his friends and teammates?
I agree. I get that it's pretty shady Miller just took the guys out, but is there really anything Floyd did wrong? Although it's kind of implied that Miller was going to spend his own money on them, for all Floyd knows he took them to his dorm and they played video games or something. Beyond that, if he does say something to Miller that implies he's going to be spending his own money like suggesting he doesn't do that then that makes it even more sticky. And Miller volunteered to take the guys out, it's not like Floyd called him over and said hey get me these two recruits and pointed across the room to them. So although it's shady I'm not sure there's anything Floyd did wrong, and I'm not sure how he could have handled the situation much differently without getting into trouble.
I really don't see this team winning it all. I understand that they are the best team on paper, but I just don't think they have a top-scoring threat like most other teams in the country (and I don't believe Hansbrough is a scoring threat).
yeah give Roy the best team in the country and he'll find a way to blow it(see 1997 KU team) that team never should have lost to Arizona
UK's first exhibition is tomorrow night, I have a test that I'm going to slaughter so I don't miss any of it.
I'm extremely pumped about the team, I haven't seen a UK team together like this in forever. Patterson has a good shot at all-american and SEC POY honors, Jodie Meeks is going to surprise a lot of people. They had the blue/white scrimmage last night and he put up 32. I'd say he'll be our leading scorer over even Patterson.
I cannot believe Florida is ranked over us, they couldn't even make the tournament and they lost Speights. I think they'll be improved but not enough to make them ranked.
I'm expecting UK (health provided) to be top 15 by the end of the season, right now I'd put us mid to upper 20's.
