BTI's Rants and Ramblings: 2011 Recruits Comparison (This season sucks)

Honestly, I can not discuss last night for fear of saying things that Beisner would have to pull off this website.  (Last second play drawn up was the worst I have seen in 25 years of UK watching) So, I will simply do what many UK fans are doing and that is looking ahead to the 2011-12 season. (How many times does Knight have to bumrush the lane with a wild drive at the end of games before we realize it doesn't work) Just how good can these incoming players be? (Seriously, Eloy was a Top 50 recruit.  Evan Daniels will never gain that credibility back) Well, I compared the 2011 recruits by their position ranking in their class and compared them to the players at the same position rank in the previous classes. (For god's sake, let Harrellson shoot when open.) *All Rankings from MARQUIS TEAGUE (#1 PG) 2010: Kyrie Irving (Duke) 2009: John Wall (Kentucky) 2008: Brandon Jennings (Arizona) 2007: OJ Mayo (USC) 2006: Ty Lawson (North Carolina) 2005: Greg Paulus (Duke) 2004: Shaun Livingston (NBA) 2003: Chris Paul (Wake Forest) 2002: Raymond Felton (North Carolina) MICHAEL GILCHRIST (#1 SF) 2010: Harrison Barnes (North Carolina) 2009: Lance Stephenson (Cincinnati) 2008: Demar Derozan (USC) 2007: Kyle Singler (Duke) 2006: Kevin Durant (Texas) 2005: Julian Wright (Kansas) 2004: Rudy Gay (UCONN) 2003: Luol Deng (Duke) 2002: Carmelo Anthony (Syracuse) ANTHONY DAVIS (#1 PF) 2010: Tobias Harris (Tennessee) 2009: John Henson (North Carolina) 2008: Samardo Samuels (Louisville) 2007: Michael Beasley (Kansas State) 2006: Brandan Wright (North Carolina) 2005: Josh McRoberts (Duke) 2004: Al Jefferson (NBA) 2003: Ndubi Ebi (Arizona) 2002: Paul Davis (Michigan State) KYLE WILTJER (#6 PF) 2010: Deshaun Thomas (Ohio State) 2009: Mason Plumlee (Duke) 2008: Jamychal Green (Alabama) 2007: Anthony Rudolph (LSU) 2006: Stanley Robinson (UCONN) 2005: Brandon Costner (NC State) 2004: Marquise Gray (Michigan State) 2003: Alexander Johnson (Florida State) 2002: Shavlik Randolph (Duke) OK, dissect it if you want.  I just don't have the energy for my pointless analysis today. (Cal stinks worse at drawing up plays than Billy Gillispie.  There, I said it.) (Deandre Liggins is not as good a defender as people think.  Plus, YOU'RE A JUNIOR!!!!  Stop acting like a spoiled 4 year old brat every time they call a foul on you.)
