My goal here is one thing to try and report some things that others fail to report with an open and fair mind. Of coarse i have my own opinions but at the same time will try and be fair to all fan bases.
In case you write about the Dawgs for any reason, I wanted to make sure to tell you that I am almost 100% positive that Isaiah Thomas is not a JR as his dads name is not Isaiah. He is not the son of the Legendary NBA player Isaiah Thomas. His dad actually made a bet with a close friend and lost. What he had to do was name his kid Isaiah. He was not a Pistons fan, didnt like Isaiah Thomas, and hated losing the bet, but followed through with it and named his kid Isaiah, of course his last name had been Thomas no matter what. Funny story though huh?
I imagine he had been talking with Terrence Ross about possibly picking Kentucky, Ross probably asked him to take one more visit to UW with him in an attempt to sway his decision. Just a guess but seeing as they said he had an individual about rosses height walking with him and Romarr at UW. Jones certainly needs to develope some maturity before entering the NBA. without it he could end up as many NBA players do Broke 5 years after retireing.
Definitely Wash is in my Opinion one of the top 25 programs in college ball at this time. They have deffinitely outshined Arizona in the past 5 years and have proven to be better then GOnzaga in tournament time. Unlike USC you dont have the scandall with football and BBall that resulted in the bball couch takeing the heat to save trojan Football at Wash. Just as you are aware the University of Kentucky has the NAtional exposure washington just isnt given currently. I feel in the future though more exposure is being given to these less historic programs. I would GO out on a limb and say Wash IMO is the best team on the western half of the United States. Butler Proved last year you cant count any team out.
I absolutely agree with you. The reason I left that message is because, unlike you, a lot of Kentucky fans think there is no good programs beyond their own, especially Washington. I do believe, however that I wrote that post the day or after he picked the hat. I never had a problem with Kentucky and don't blame Jones for wanting to go there, BUT I do wish that he would have conducted himself better. Even after he took the hat, he could have said "Im not committed to anyone, instead of saying he was still committed to Wash. He then did not need to take a trip up here the day before he makes his decision to go to Kentucky. I would have had no problem if he just chose Kentucky, but the way this all went down was absolutely ridiculous. With that said, I believe that Wroten will go to Kentucky because he believes that his signing is the biggest things to EVER happen in NCAA History. If that is his attitude, no way he comes to Wash. Just being realistic.
However, I do appreciate the nice words about Wash. I got into a debate with some Kentucky fans on their board, where Kentucky fans were saying Kentucky was a winning program but Wash was not. I kept saying we may not have the history that Kentucky does, but we are a winning program too, especially over the last 8 years. They refused to say anything positive about Wash, saying that they were all that mattered, so with all that explanation, I hope you understand that I am serious when I say thanks for the recognition/words about our program.
The question now is what do we do till football and basketball season starts???? LOL! Take care.
Now I forget are you a Dawg fan or a Kentucky fan?
No, UW should not give up on TW. He is a guy that Romar has been all over for a long long time. While I think he will go to Kentucky, unless Calipari leaves or gets in trouble, by no means do you give up on a guy of that calliber. The guy I am more stoked about is actually Jabari Brown. I would rather have him I think and Angelo Chol.
I'll admit I focused to much on Wall and strayed away from the point I was trying to make. Like I said only my 2nd article and I still have a lot to learn.
I just believe we are human and we all need help with the facts. You don't have to be a fan of mine I just know I need comments like yours to help with the facts. Things can be missed.
I really am honest about the truth being most important. I want to go after the corrupt but I need comments like yours to help me with the facts so stick with me and keep those comments coming.
