The anti-Kentucky Wildcats bias

It’s one thing to read an article on a national website relating to the Kentucky Wildcats but it’s another to read one that is so blatantly biased to the point that it is not even funny.


Since when was getting an education frowned upon? A few years ago, it seemed that everyone was tired of one and done and saying how it’s bad for college basketball and the NBA–and that players should be getting an education.

A funny thing happened on the way to this discussion. One first round pick returned to Kentucky for his junior season after not playing in the Final Four or the championship game.

Then a few more players in a highly touted freshman class opted to come back for their sophomore season.

It does not mean that the One and Done system failed for these players. Maybe some of them never intended on being one and done. I don’t know.

But to see a headline with the following phrase is absolutely baffling: “The Harrison twins didn’t come back to Kentucky; they were rejected by the NBA (and that’s John Calipari’s problem, not just the Harrisons’)”

To see it on USA Today is just as mind-baffling and such articles need to stop displaying such an anti-Kentucky Wildcats bias.
