Exactly you have a kid who

Exactly you have a kid who probably has fans and friends saying the same thing of what HE should do even if its not something he really wants to do. People telling him what his aim should be. yeah thats no pressure at all to some kids

It's actually not that bad.

It's actually not that bad. It's not like I'm a 35 year old man who called someone who's acting like a loser a loser. I'm probably the exact same age as Terrence Jones is.

I wouldnt call him a loser,

I wouldnt call him a loser, its just a case of being immature, loyalty is huge in basketball if he doesnt really know what school he wants to go to, and flip, flops, like this i have a hard time thinking hes gonna be a team player.

^^^ exactly on the point of

^^^ exactly on the point of not calling him a loser. Not sure why you would find it hard to think hes a team player though when his on the court play suggests other wise. lets not get this incident mixed with what he does on the court. if we did that then we have to question so many players on the court decisions with what they have done in there personal life..example..jason kidd on the court vs things he has done in his marriage off the court

I have no idea what the two

I have no idea what the two schools are saying to terence, but i hope that both cal and lorenzo romar are taking the high road and allowing him the freedom to make his own mind and change his mind if he wants. From what i read, cal is telling jones how he is letting down a bunch of people after he already made his choice, which is pretty bush league coming from a millionaire coach. He can continue to recruit all he wants, but if he is trying to guilt trip terence like he owes him and the kentucky fans something, that's wrong.

He told him(from what i read)

He told him(from what i read) that hes making alot of people happy and sad. This is something that most of the top coachs that we love do when a player just has a verbal and not a written. its not a written nor unwritten rule in the coaching circles although any coach that gets that verbal likes it. People may not like it and think that recruiting is just so nice and neat but its very cut throat. these coach's go into the grey all the time and bend the rules as much as they can in order to get a player because as much as some like to argue about it its a business. its sad that its gotten to that point but once you bring in so much money thats exactly what it becomes and when you have coach's jobs on the line it gets closer and closer to a death match in a way..lol

Some examples of the things

Some examples of the things some very respectable coachs have done(wont name names) while ive played at Abca camp,vegas and while in vegas watching aau games

Magically go into the bathroom at the exact same time a recruit they want is in there when there is a no contact rule

have a friend of the school talk to the recruit when theres a no contact

Tell a recruit that another coach is about to have his school on probation even when they arent after the recruit has already verbally committed

Had a Freshmans family get a 50percent decrease on there house from a booster

Trip and fall in front of a recruit so the recruit will help them up and talk to them a lil

I heard Josh Huestis has

I heard Josh Huestis has decided to not go to Stanford, and rather go to Montana because he wants to be near his family. Josh Huestis told me this.

He actually said he is doing this because he felt like he disappointed his uncle Quincy Hodges for not going with his heart.

Knicksfan7 had on a Montana

Knicksfan7 had on a Montana throwback with Huestis on it. And he had it on backwards so the Huestis could be seen easily.

I had on a Stanford jersey, jean shorts, and some Sperry's. As I looked on in disappointment, as our star recruit took his skills elsewhere. :/
