    He's definitely leapfrogging Jericho Sims on their depth chart if he commits.

    he isn't going to michigan, pretty sure beilein wasn't even recruiting him until bambas camp reached out to them. I think texas is a good blend of academics + familiarity with smart and coleman the pg, but how does he fit with jarret allen and banks? UConn is also a good fit because of familiarity (players on the team, coach) and we have an abundance of PT.

    @AntG168 Yes. The same way Texas signing coleman would help them.

    No I remember reading that too, think it was either Zags or Brian Snow but I could be wrong about where it came from. Listed something like 4 officials and a guess at the 5th that wasn't us

    Edit: From Bossi on Rivals on Dec 18, link won't work but Google "

    Bamba would be amazing. But I refuse to allow myself to believe it's possible. For my sanity lol

    Kentucky has absolutely no room for Bamba. I can't seem him wanting to go there. Last I checked Texas seemed like the most likely option for him.
     
  21. We're not getting Bamba. We would have to beat out Duke and Kentucky for him and that ain't happening right now. He has been linked to Matt Coleman who is down to Duke and Texas.

    Kentucky has to completely rebuild their team next year. They may have only three scholly players returning. They have room.

    Rebuild, that's hilarious. Team usually rebuild after NC's and such, why do you guys have to? Oh that's right those one and done's, how's that working? They are good everywhere and as we stand now, I can appreciate that. If they keep winning NC's like they should be I'd get it, but you fans who are actually buying into Squids "we're an NBA draft program" like Hami and others, well that must be getting sickening. Eventually with the country's best talent year after year on the the court you'd love to pull another NC banner up to the rafters on occasion?

    He's been to 4 Final Fours in 6 years. If not for UConn he'd have 3 NCAA titles in 6 years. On top of that, he was 2 games from a perfect season. Has a legitimate Final Four contending team this year. Hate reading garbage like this.
