...Deshawn Painter (3 star, 126 overall via Rivals).

Say good-bye to John Wall because this was our last scholarship. However, we have the 7th ranked PG coming in this year and a 5 star point guard for next year in Ryan Harrow (plus Gonzalez, Mays, and an experienced Degand). Besides, these rankings don't mean much and it isn't necessarily going to bring anyone a championship. That being said, John Wall, while he may improve another team's chances, isn't the end all be all. Painter is a powerful big man that can compliment NBA bound (yes, he is) Tracy Smith with that Australian kid that's comin' in too. Oh, and btw, the basketball team recieved 995 pts out of a possible 1,000 in the Academic Progress Rate (APR) which is phenomenal. Sorry to say, with Calipari, UK's scholarships might dwindle down. Anywho, i'm feeling perrty good right now.

Go Pack!

probably better that the Pack just leave Wall alone.......too much drama for any team, especially one that is rebuilding

I'm happy even though I won't be able to goto NC State since I'll be at UNC-Charlotte

man, this thread's on the verge of a hi-jack...i can feel it. Oh, and Ncstatefan, Lutz has a great program in Charlotte. Should be a lot of fun. The gym they play in, while nothing like the mecca, is a dominant place to play and go nuts. Anyways, good luck with your college education.

4 star, 89th overall via Scout.com as a PF, whereas Rivals has him listed as a C

Either way, he gives us another big body that will be able to contribute next year, unlike Australian center Jordan Vandenberg who will probably need a year before he will be ready to contribute more than garbage time for the team.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
