How the F*** does the state of TEXAS miss out on the Harrison bros?
 
GOT DAMN Im still mad about them going to Kentucky.... how does this happen??

Theres absolutely no reason why the University of Texas should be missing out on top talent from Texas.. Rick Barnes should be held accountable ..

But damn what about Baylor or A&M?? Couldnt they step up and recruit the fukk out of these guys and match whatever Kentucky was offering?

depends, do those coaches want players who are there for a pit stop, or there to try and win something legitimate?

Kentucky is the most appealing destination for players who are just trying to do their "one year sentence" and get out. Baylor is not really a high profile school, and we wont even discuss A&M in that regard.

They are trying to get as much exposure before they enter the draft next year, playing for UK is as exposed as it gets.

This.

Add in that Texas is now and will always be football-first and I imagine it wasn't much of a contest for Cal.

Easy....they might not find the home state appealing in terms of getting them NBA ready. Texas is nice but not Kentucky. Or UNC or Kansas.

because what kinda idiot wants to play for Rick Barnes? with the amount of money and in state talent at that school I have no clue why they aren't rioting over both Barnes and Mack Brown. Brown especially, I don't care how good he is at jerking off boosters, eventually somebody has to be held accountable.
