As Chitown boy I am proud of A.D. he reminds me of Scottie PIppen by his third year in the NBA. The fact that he is this good already blows me away. Micheal is licking his chops down at Charlotte. Sure wish he would have gone to U of I.

You don't seem to be aware that playing at Bloomington is about the worst place in the entire USA to play.  They cheat like crazy there despite your obvious lack of awareness.  I predicted exactly what would happen in that game.  I have witnesses.  I said Davis would get 2 first half fouls and a quick second half foul.  It happens EVERY time UK goes to play in that cracker box gym.  IU is well known as one of the worst places to play anywhere.  You like to think that's not true but I have the videos to back up what I say.  Phantom fouls are a thing of the past in most places but not in Bloomington.  The only reason UK lost that game is that Davis got in foul trouble which he has only done one other time this season.  But the exact same thing happens every time UK goes to Bloomington.  That's why it's so predictable.  The last time UK went to that crap hole gym (and it is a gym, not an arena like actual college programs) Demarcus Cousins got 4 fouls.  He got to play a grand total of 16 minutes.  The time before that Ramel Bradley fouled out playing only 23 minutes.  He was the leading scorer on that team.  Are you noticing a pattern yet?  The game before that at Indianapolis (like that's not a home game for IU) a guy named Rondo got 4 fouls and was limited to 28 minutes.   I can document this stuff dating back since the beginning of the IU - UK series.  IU cheats.  It's a well known fact.  It happens EVERY time UK plays IU anywhere in that state.  The game before Rondo played Gerald Fitch, a key UK guard, got 3 fouls and was limited to 24 minutes.  If you don't see a pattern yet it's because you aren't trying.  Fitch was the glue guy for UK that year.  In fact he was captain of SI's glue guy team at the end of the season.  Do you really think these are all just coincidences?  If you do you're the only one.  IU cheats.  I can keep going BTW.  The time before that All American Keith Bogans fouled out and only played 27 minutes.  Tayshaun Prince, All American, got 3 key fouls and only played 28 minutes the game before that in Indianapolis.  Prince played almost every minute of every game just like Bogans, Fitch, Rondo, and Davis.  Cousins always played far more than 16 minutes.  This streak goes as far back as I want to document.  You don't have a leg to stand on.  IU cheats pure and simple.  I just gave you a ton of evidence to prove that and I could go back another 20 years easy.  Let's just jump back 20 years befoe Prince and see what we have.  Fred Cowan, Lavon Williams, Dwight Anderson, Chuck Verderber, and Clarence Tillman all fouled out.  Chuck Aleksinas and Jay Shidler had 4 fouls each.  IU won by one point in OT.  I'm telling you I've been watching this series for 40 years and it's been that way every single time UK plays in Indiana.  If you think IU doesn't cheat you don't have a clue.

If Davis dosen't win it, It has to be because of the board and thier hate of Calipari and UK, He is the obvious choice, He has like 175 less FG att's than Robinson and still competes with TRob.
Nothing against Robinson he is extremely talented but Davis is once in a decade and everyone knows it whether they want to admit it or not (Looking at you Bobby Knight)


GO CATS!!!!!

"UK would be undefeated if he (Davis) played more in the Indiana game and the refs didn't call those cheap fouls on him." Sad that you have to blame the Refs for your one loss, Bluebullet! NC fans aren't crying because UK beat them by 1 point. Like I've said before UK is a great team and could win it all this year. Stop crying over the 1 loss!

jhawkkfrk>> Well Davis is 7 foot 90 pounds.

Maybe thats how he is able to blocks all those shots so he can get up in the air.
300 hundred pounds doesn't help much unless your in football.

asschill > Davis was the best player a school could buy.

The NCAA does not support payments to get players in college sports.
If you have been investagating UK you should provide your proof and evidence for us all to see.
Or unless you just want to slander someone ?

UnderTow > I also know that Calipari turns a blind eye to potential scandals on the premise of putting the best team on the floor (this is empirical evidence, not just my opinion

You know ? Do you hang out with Capipari daily from no mans land Nebraska ?
It is all coaches jobs in all sports to put out the best team they can.
Have you ever played any sports ?

Anthony Davis wins hands down !
UK would be undefeated if he played more the Indiana game and the refs didn't call those cheap fouls on him.
