    In reading the article, it seems like Harrison "Benedict Arnold" Barnes will be there.
    Sounds like Austin has a new love and can't figure out how to leave the old one.

    Come on, Austin, there must be 50 ways to leave your lover.

    A simple, "see ya' later, alligator" should do just fine.

    There is nothing that U of F could offer Rivers that we dont have. With the talent coming we can only go up. Only a matter of time!

    The chance to break a streak of four straight years of missing the NCAA tournament?

    Do you want to play for a team that might have a chance to get into the NCAA or play for a chance to win the NC as well as a much better conference. Rivers gets really frustrated when he team mates struggle and there seems to be a fair share of that at U of F.

    I watched that game too. Watching what Florida is doing right now, and looking at the situation he would have with the Devils, I think there is a good chance he comes here. He would be perfect with Kyrie... Him and Kyrie in the backcourt. Take a look at what our lineup could be:

    PG: Irving/ Thronton
    SG: Rivers/ Curry/Dawkins
    SF: Dawkins/ Felix
    PF: Miller/Hairston/Plumlee
    C: Mason/ Marshall/ Aziz/ Miles

    That's assuming we get Marshall and Miller which is up in the air right now, but I think there is a chance we do pry them due to with Plumlee family connections with Mason and Miles.

    Could you just imange??

    You're also assuming that we get Felix. And that we don't get whatever prospects are out there but haven't yet surfaced. A lot can happen between now and 2011... but regardless things are definitely looking good for us.

    Actually, that's assuming quite a lot. In addition to Miller and the youngest Plumlee, we don't yet have Felix, we don't yet have N'Diaye (I don't even think he's gotten an official offer), and we don't have Rivers (who is still committed to UF). And we don't know for certain that all of the players we currently have will still be there in 2011 (it is conceivable that Mason and Irving could be good enough to go very early).

    It's a nice picture, but a lot of dominoes would still have to fall our way.

    Things just never work out like this. It's nice to contemplate, but the odds of this falling into place are quite long.

    Rivers is an elite talent for sure and wif Duke lands him ... this one has a little ways to go yet.

    There are too many variables involved here. First and foremost, does Irving go pro? And do we get Quinn Cook class of 2011 to replace him? If so, replace Irving with Cook. If we don't get Cook, maybe Seth Curry runs the point? Also, the odds of us landing both Rivers and Miller are pretty low. I feel optimistic on both, but I was optimistic on Prince Harry too, and look how that turned out. Lastly, Mason may go pro before that year, though I hope he doesn't. The only thing I feel truly confident about is landing Felix. I don't think he's going to turn us down for ASU.

    Plus, do we really need 3 superstars of Irving, Rivers and Curry in the backcourt? I would almost call that too crowded. As a Duke fan I would love it, but it's a long shot.

    EDIT: And where is Kelly in that equation? Ryan Kelly will be a very, very good player for Duke. He is a multitalented big man, with excellent shooting and passing. His on court intelligence is superb. He is definitely a Coach K type player.
