    WF Reeves
    WF/PF Livingston
    F Collins
    F Toppin
    F/C Broome/Miller (?)
    C Ware
    C Tshiebwe

    Who else? Need another guard IMO.
    Broome isn’t coming now that Oscar’s back.

      I read that somewhere.

            Even without Sharpe, I don't feel like Arkansas has a decidedly better roster than we do.

              Felt so bad for Walker. Great book though.

                Nice roster EXCEPT I don't see anyone capable of taking control of the game in the last 5 minutes. TyTy was our man last year until his injury. I see no one in this list unless, possibly, Wallace. This is concerning.

                  Oscar has the ability to take over a game strictly by rebounding but that's easily countered so I agree. I feel like Toppin has the potential to take over games from an energy and defensive perspective. But we definitely need a shot maker.

                  • I don’t get Cal trying to convince everyone the Sharpe deal is not over yet. Has getting played by Sharpe combined with the season ending loss have him a bit embarrassed? He would never admit anything like that. But why else would he be going against his entire point of being at UK? Is he actually attempting to convince a likely top 7 and guaranteed lottery pick to stay in school rather than go change his life?
                    We are a players first program Cal! Winning games is secondary. Kiss him goodbye. Pat yourself on the back for making him rich. You were as much a part of that as you were with Wall and Davis. Then try to find a replacement.

                          The logical explanation is trying to talk to the parents through the media to get them to cut out the advisor.

                            Yes but I think you’re missing my point. The only reason to cut out the advisor would be to try to get Sharpe to play at UK. Thereby delaying a bunch of millions of $ for just a couple million. This is NOT Cal’s reason for coaching. Is he trying to keep up appearances for the fans and his employer? He’s never cared about that before. Something has changed. He may feel left at the altar by this guy but would that make him try to get him to sacrifice “chaanging his life?”
