Knew it was serious when he started yelling
Heard this kids a real asshole from someone I know who goes to Uk, but after 3 knee surgeries I could never wish this upon anyone. As long as he keeps his athleticism this might be the end of the world, that rehab time will be a great time for him to add some mass.
hate to hear that
He was always extremely nice on the recruiting trail, talked with him a few times. That's certainly not always true for guys of his profile in high school.
Dang. Pray for Nerlens & big Will Y for full & speedy recovery. Two of the SEC's best big men. Just knew NN was in trouble when I saw the look on his face as his team mates carried him off the floor last nite. God bless him.
Sucks, never wish this on anybody. Maybe KY will get lucky and have him back next year, but hopefully not. He will still be a lottery pick and probably Top 3.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
Just awful really feel for the kid. Really liked the class and concern Billy displayed toward Nerlens.
This is why I do not like the one and done rule.
It's a dumb rule. Imo it should be either you go directly or have to stay in college 3 years.
Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga
I bump one back, but agree.
I think the option to go straight, or stay 2 in college.

I agree with this. Forcing a player to go to school for 1 year is ridiculous, what do they get out of that? Make them eligible to get drafted right out of high school or be in college for a minimum of 2 year.

I'll go ahead and be the dickhead that points out that our game in Rupp just got a lot easier.
If prospects were able to directly go, college bball would suck.
I think it would be better. You take out the guys that don't want to be there and have guys that are going to be there 3 or 4 years. Nothing is worse then 1 and dones in my opinion.
I think baseball does it right.
Only problem is that recruiting would be VERY tough for coaches.
You do realize that rule has only been around for 6 drafts right?
hate that for the kid...especially making a hustle play...hopefully he comes back fully healthy and has a successful career...
I disagree I think it would be a lot better. You would find out who the better coaches are and see players develope and it would be a lot more competitive.
I like this idea as well. Three is probably too much for basketball.
it doesnt already? past few years talent has been so lackluster compared to early 2000's
I went on Rupp Rafters (Rivals) to see what their posters were reporting on NN. Damn, they are trashing the heck out of the Gators saying we didn't offer him any help getting him off the floor, no assistance, drove him to Shands in a truck, no x-ray equip in the O, ect....These Cats are crazy!!
I can see why Tubby got the heck out of Dodge when he did & why Billy G. is half insane now. Also understand why Billy D rejected them 2-3 times!!
You would think by reading their posts we threw him in the back of a pick up truck, drove him to Shands & tossed him out on the curb!!! Cal won't last there much longer. What a whacked out fan base! Check it out!!
He was taken to Shands in a pickup truck, for what it's worth.
That comes across real good! Is that the best we can do for a kid that just blew his knee out??
I don't know why or how all that stuff works. But there was a black pickup truck parked in the O'Dome near the locker room waiting to take him out of the arena after the game. He was taken out in a wheelchair, so maybe they needed the pickup to get a ramp to wheel him up in there? I don't know.
