If so many of these guys want minutes above all else, and they don't care if it's on a worse team, then why don't we steal 5* players from Kentucky? I swear our fans have a built-in excuse for everything. Not to mention that Hicks could get minutes here. And he could start getting them next year if he's any good. Excuses, excuses, excuses.

We're not talking about 5 star players.

I mean we have seen players pick much lesser schools than Cincinnati for the sole reason of more minutes. And with a coach that tends to favor older players, it isn't crazy for fans to get nervous and make that excuse. It has happened before and will continue to happen. Kentucky turns over their roster nearly every year. They have minutes to offer every year. That's apples to oranges. It isn't unusual for a freshman to be skeptical of whether he can unseat a senior for playing time.

We needed someone like Quadri Moore to play in the NCAA Tournament as a FR and SO. I'm pretty sure we have minutes.

Oh for God's sake, stop taking everything so literally.

A player choosing Tulane over UC would be like a player choosing UC over Kentucky. Just a hypothetical for the sake of an example.

We've now built an ironclad excuse for losing any recruit. If they go to a better school, blame the conference, arena, etc. If they go to a worse school, even if it's in the AAC, blame it on playing time. Poor us. So many disadvantages! Can't recruit with the Kentucky's or the SE Louisiana's of the world!
