Bledsoe sat out maybe two games.

Other than those two instances (which Orton was already here when Cal came), UK is consistently on top of the SEC per the APR.

Truth hurts.

some old shit lol.

I just think it's funny when people are like COACH CAL DOING IT WITH FRESHMEN. That's the only facepalm moment anymore. I got over the possible shade and I don't think he's going to get vacated this time. He's finally 'made it.'

But to act like he's doing some great work to succeed with these guys is luls.

The criticism leveled at LBJ whenever his GM does his job (teams are supposed to gather as much talent as possible) shouldn't leak into NCAA analysis. You are supposed to grab all the talent you can. If you don't, someone else will and they will beat you. That's just how it works.
