If true...wow...he definitely has talent, so if the rumor is true, WWW may be delivering the proverbial truckload of cash soon

Love that he's leaving Pitt, hate that (if true) he's going to Kentucky.

I really don't understand why any McDs AA would commit to Pitt? That is one of the last schools I would go to if I wanted to shine and develop to play in the NBA

So odd, how does this happen in the middle of the season like this? Where does he have time to be in contact with Kentucky staff?

Maybe he just doesn't like playing basketball. No more minutes this year, sit out a year (does he sit out the full year?), get buried on the bench next to some other 5 stars who aren't one and done.

He would be eligible second semester next year, I think.

Too bad. I was looking forward to seeing him and Drummond go at it.

I'm not sure if he has to sit out two years if the school doesn't give him his release. Maybe someone knows for sure.

I read recently that Kentucky doesn't have any available scholarships this season. One player transferred before the season started but once you renew the scholarship in June it's taken up for the rest of the year even if it's not being used. So Birch would have to pay his own way 2nd semester this year before going on scholarship next year.

Some kids really do expect everything to be handed to them I guess. I hope he does leave for Kentucky - does he think Calipari will stop recruiting 5 star big men just because he's there?

The clusterfu*k that is the Pitt Athletic Department over the last 72 hours makes me smile.

I know he was a McD's All American and all... but I saw this kid play last year and he's not very good.

Obviously there's some potential there, and maybe he becomes a very good player, but I think his ceiling is limited.

Also, maybe he didn't want to play in a conference that has 4 good teams and a bunch of D2 schools

I guess he couldn't handle the departure of Coach Graham either. I'm smiling as a write this.

actually it was the departure of Coach Skerry that started this in motion.

CBS reporting friday that he is on his way home to Toronto and he is officially done at Pitt. He hasn't said where he is headed next year.

The Curse of the ACC strikes again! Couldn't happen to a more deserving school either.

The Pitt board is hillarious. There are two threads - one that he goes to WVU which is unlikely as he would have to sit two years (unless WVU can get out of the BE fast enough and then he wouldn't) and the second that he is going to Kentucky. They think the NCAA should take scholorships away from UK if that happens and that the NCAA should immediately investigage Calipari if he commits there. Funny stuff.
