(1) What will Jodie Meeks do? The Kentucky junior has until June 15 to decide whether or not to remain in the NBA Draft. For now, Meeks is still testing the waters and trying to determine his future. Your guess is as good as mine as to whether or not he will return.
The guess is here that Meeks is taking a hard look at the possibilities and hasn’t made up his mind whether to remain in the draft or return back to Kentucky.
If he returns, Kentucky will be one of the favorites to contend for a national title. If he decides to make the jump to the next level, Kentucky should be in good hands. One would also wonder of Meeks is considering what it would be like to play for John Calipari,
(2) I know the NCAA has rules and regulations that apply to all student-athletes, but Jeremy Jarmon deserved another season at Kentucky. Not all players have the same heart and guts as Jarmon did when he held a press conference on Memorial Day weekend. He’s a great football player and an even better person.
Jarmon is a first-class individual all the way. He will go down as one of my all-time favorite football players at Kentucky. I am of the belief that Jarmon made an honest mistake.
(3) Here’s my question: How in the world was John Calipari or the University of Memphis for that matter, suppose to know that an unnamed player allegedly cheated on an entrance exam before enrolling in school? The player in question wasn’t in Calipari or the university’s care until he stepped foot on campus.
(4) Former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie needs to take what Kentucky has to offer and be satisfied with a settlement regarding his brief tenure at Kentucky. Nolan Richardson won a national championship, but failed to prove his case when he went after the University of Arkansas. Sometimes it’s better not to make things any more complicated.
(5) Calipari can recruit and do it well.
