It’s been way too long for a new WBN podcast and since we last talked, UK Athletics has undergone something of a reversal of fortune. Kentucky football is on the rise and Kentucky basketball, well, not so much. Mark Stoops and company are coming off perhaps the best recruiting weekend in recent Kentucky Wildcatfootball history and have landed four commitments in a week. The basketball team is reeling after a horrible first week in the SEC. But there is hope. So we had plenty to talk about for our first podcast of 2013. I was joined by James Streble, Jason Marcum, Daniel Solzman, Wayne Hunter, and football guys Darren Durham and Kyle.
Among the topics discussed:
- Let’s meet the new football commitments
- How many silent verbals are there out there?
- Can Mark Stoops deliver a Top 25 class?
- Jason Hatcher, Asiantii Woulward, and Jeff Badet
- Can UK basketball miss the NCAA Tournament or are they NIT bound?
- UK’s NCAA resume
- Is it time to panic?
- Is getting UK back on track as simple as “flipping a switch”
- UK/Tennessee predictions
- Is this the dark side of “one and done” recruiting?
- Having to pick between UL, IU, or Duke to win title
- and more
