With today being “Andrew Wiggins Day”, AKA the day that the No. 1 overall high school basketball recruit will make his collegiate decision, Twitter has been abuzz with predictions, analysis and straight-up hate. The majority of the disdain, of course, is focused on John Calipari and his Kentucky program. With five of the top nine prospects secured as Wildcats for the class of 2013, the addition of Wiggins would surely take Kentucky from an NIT participant to the favorite to win the NCAA Tournament.
Naturally, fans of almost every other program in the country are pulling for Wiggins to choose any of the three other schools – North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State. That’s right, fans are actually rooting for UNC and KU – two of the most storied programs in the history of college basketball – to land Wiggins and stop Calipari’s insane recruiting streak.
Don’t believe me? Check out Twitter this morning – it’s been a riot. Fans of #BBN are obviously pulling for Coach Cal, but pretty much everyone else would be happy with Wiggins choosing any of the other options.
