    He probably did realize it but Justus was bringing some solid talent into the program. So it wasn't like Justus was a total bust. Those relationships he built with several players was essential and even with those flaws Jones mentions, Justus had a good run here.

    I think Cal got to the point though where he clearly felt like the Justus Era was not on the same level as the Antigua Era, and so he's gone for a program reboot.

    • I think the glaring difference was even though we were bringing in top 2 classes, it was more decent recruits, instead of top 3 guys. To me that is what has been lacking because when you miss on the Cade Cunningham's, Anthony Edwards, and Zions of the world(I'm leaving Wiseman out because that was no ones fault) it can make a big difference.

      We all know that this last season does a complete 180 if we have Cunningham running the show.

Matt Jones just told a story of seeing the look on Cal's face when they told him that Zion Williamson was going to Duke. He said Cal prides himself on knowing what was gonna happen with these kids, and he kept getting blindsided and left to scramble.
            Zion ended up winning the lawsuit and didn’t have to repay his original representative agency for breaking his contract with them when he decided to go with another firm. But can you even imagine the NCAA repercussions at UK (or anywhere other than Duke) if an agency/bunch of lawyers went on record they had a contract and had provided benefits to a player while in college if he had come to UK? But at Duke...wasn’t even looked at. Still we dodged a bullet as we would not have gotten that treatment.

                Something else for the rules committee to ignore.

                  Kyle Tucker claims that Cal is going after this kid hard. And directly. A zoom yesterday and a follow up today.

                    Saw that.

                    To me TyTy to Kentucky would explain a lot about what happened with Hickman.

                    • I won’t be surprised if we land TyTy and C.J. in pretty quick succession.

                      One more PG after that, then we’re ready to roll. Maybe top things off with another big to replace Jackson (perhaps the Syracuse guy).

                        Fredrick today, Tyty on the 15th and I'm pretty happy.

                        If they could get Jose Alvarado too, things are back on track.

                          Um, what? Had no idea this guy was even an option, or if I did I forgot about it.

                          Heck yeah you take that. If TyTy is legit and you got Alvarado along with what we have, that's huge. I don't even know where Frederick fits in that scenario because Alvarado is a considerably better player.

                            Travis Graf said that IF he goes in the portal, which has been speculated, he'd go to UK because of Antigua.

                              That's huge. That guy can really play. I think he'd start immediately for UK if he came.

                                Yep, a Tyty, Alvarado, Fredrick, Grady, Allen rotation at the 1-3 is.... Good lol
