#61 Kentucky Wildcats: College Football 77 in 77

ashley_judd_UK

With a coach’s name like Joker Phillips, you know the Kentucky Wildcats are going to have a ton of players on the all name team (my favorite feature of the 77 in 77) and they don’t disappoint with DTs Mister Cobble and Donte Rumph. Both of which also star players. All of UK’s talent is on defense, for the most part. As their offense was EXTREMELY ATROCIOUS last season.

Remember this is a college basketball hotbed in a college football land. You won’t see 6 draft picks in the first two rounds like you did in hoops.By the way, have I ever mentioned just how unfortunate looking Anthony Davis really is?

Let’s get to it!

More Kentucky Wildcats tourney wins=more emphasis on one-and-done prospects

kentucky-cheerleader

There aren’t many songs about Kentucky. However, Elvis (Presley, not Costello, Grbac or Dumervil) did sing about “the cold Kentucky rain.” But with the way Kentucky’s college basketball team whipped Baylor today, and how convincing they look as the favorite to cut down the nets in New Orleans, and it’ll be “Kentucky reign.”

And Kentucky reign is based on John Calipari buying recruiting the top-of-the-line prospects; the one-and-done to the NBA guys. Big Blue has become the destination for blue-chip recruits, year-in and year-out, they keep replenishing them. And if UK wins it all this year, expect more teams to copy their style.

The watch list for the Naismith Award, honoring the nation’s top college basketball player, was release today. The Kentucky Wildcats and North Carolina Tar Heels lead the way, as each school had four players make the short list. For UK, three of them are freshmen from their soon-to-be-legendary recruiting class: Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Marquis Teague.

All three are McDonald’s All-Americans and they have a fourth MAA Kyle Wiltjer, who just missed making the watch list. Go here (A Sea of Blue) to learn more about their talented freshmen class.

Locally, John Shurna of Northwestern has also earned the recognition. He is also on the watch list for the Wooden Award for the second consecutive season, which is a similar award.
