BBL: One Cat says he is staying while one is told to go

The two hot UK topics for today’s Big Blue Links are the one player who said he is staying, though few may believe him, and the one player who is unexpectedly leaving.

Almost as big as Kentucky clinching its 45th SEC title over the weekend was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s comment to a question in which the freshman said he was definitely returning for his sophomore season. MKG later threw some water on that with a tweet. Then John Calipari on Monday (rightly) indicated that there’s a long time between now and the time players must declare for the draft in June.

On the football front, key linebacker/defensive end Ridge Wilson saw his UK playing career come to an end when he was arrested on a felony drug charge early Sunday morning in Louisville. Wilson had been in trouble before, for allegedly striking his ex-girlfriend in the face two years ago. He had run out of second chances, though not sure a felony drug arrest on its own merit is worthy of a second chance.

One more thing: Shabazz Muhammad’s father says Kansas has a legitimate shot to land his son.
