... in 2010, events happened making two years ago today the Greatest Day in the History of Kentucky Basketball. Card carrying members of the Big Blue Nation were informed that Kentucky Basketball's future would be put in the hands of children born in 1992 and 1993 respectively. Both Brandon Knight and Michael Gilchrist committed to play basketball in Lexington for John Calipari. Knight, the #1 player in 2010 at the time according Rivals, would ultimately take over for the #1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Michael Gilchrist, the #1 player in 2011 according to everyone at the time, had been rumored to be a Calipari lean since birth. It's almost as if Coach Cal had these two pieces of news waiting for the perfect time to release it to the world. And after failing to make the Final Four in 2010, Coach Cal decided the perfect time was April 14, 2010. So for that, we salute you.
