Bill Walton had a message to future Kentucky recruits during last night's Utah-Cal game on ESPN. Following his colleague Dave Pasch's recollection of the two broadcasters calling the Kentucky-Utah game out in Las Vegas together last season, Walton took the liberty of telling potential Wildcats to consider the schools of the Pac-12 instead. "With Kentucky up against it now with their fans turning on them because they were expressing their opinions," Walton said, "I just want the players who are considering going to Kentucky (to know) that we'll welcome you out here in the conference of champions."

However, Kentucky matched both of those titles the following season and added another in 2012, bringing the score to Pac-12 Conference 2, Kentucky 3 in the modern era.
