    Williams Blog: Catching up

    Here are some thoughts on the MBB events that took place last week. I'll have more on these stories later on this week hopefully. Hope all is well Fanatics.

    Congrats Chris on your marriage and hope you had a great honeymoon. Besides the obvious risks and upside to getting White, I like the idea of getting him if we can with a one strike you're out condition. He could be a kid that has grown up some from his troubles and needs a 2nd chance to get his life going in a good direction, and imo Fred would be the perfect coach for that. But obviously this decision is up to Fred and I'll trust his judgment.

    You're right. I think that a fresh start will do Anderson and Babb well. Hopefully the same would be for White too. I guess we'll see. With a kid as talented as White, I'd be all for it. He is a team changer on the floor.

    Do you know when White would be eligible to play?

    Re: Williams Blog: Catching up

    i think the risk is definitely worth the reward, worst case scenario he screws up and we have to kick him off the team, and were back to the same position we are in now. He is most likely the most talented player we could possibly get at this time and could drastically improve our team.

    I heard UConn was also involved with White.

    Fred can point at Boozer and say look, I really want you to come play here, but I am not going to put up with any nonsense

    If White isn't ok with that, then I don't want him here.

    Calipari must not think his New Fab Five Freshmen are that good or he is just a greedy gut.

    No question White is worth the risk. We don't have 5 star talent lining up at the door to play at Iowa State. If we have a chance we take it.

    Re: Williams Blog: Catching up

    From what I understand, Kentucky was in pursuit of Terrance Jones (the 5* who committed there last week) or Royce White. I'm guessing since they got Jones, they may be cooling off of White. The last I had heard about Kentucky pursuing White was before Jones committed.

    I've heard that Cal is sniffing around White but I'm not sure the level of actual interest. This happens a lot in MBB recruiting. My gut says that Cal is just being Cal right now...but I don't know that for sure. I haven't heard anything about UCONN but that wouldn't surprise me.

    Also while you were gone, we took up a collection to send you on vacation the next time we need a string of good luck....I was only half joking, Is there a half pirate face?
