hearing from a lot of people that Blakeney is on campus, and in the city, really enjoying it.  I don't know if he will commit during the visit, but it would be awesome!

They said in the paper he was planning on going to the football game, so he must be in for the entire weekend

You only get 48 hours on an official visit, so if he is here already, then he will have to leave before the football game starts. If he got here on his own then he is fine to stay, if UL paid for his travel, then his clock starts ticking when he steps off the plane.

I don't think the 48 hour clock starts when he gets off the plane but when he gets on campus and the when he leaves campus.

He could fly in yesterday and hang out in Louisville and then show up for official Sunday at noon and leave campus Tuesday at noon and then fly out a couple days later and that is fine.

I certainly hope we get a commitment this weekend, but also realize until there is a signed LOI the kid can always flip to another school. It seems to happen regularly, not just to us. But no doubt, I hope we get him.
ACC, ready or not, here we come! Old 41-9 is back! Rick Pitino Hall of Fame. What a great time to be a Louisville Cardinal fan!  Go Cards!

Kids got game and already plays our uptempo pressing style. Coach will make him a pro. We are the smart choice but playing with his buddy and likely being guaranteed a starter could be attractive.

That works both ways

Quentin Snyder for example - both ways

Its not necessarily obsession over a kids visit but obsessing over how good UofL will be if they get that recruit on the team.

Obsessing?

Really?  How many posts do you have 17-18K and you are talking 'obsessing'?

He's scheduled to attend Big Blue Madness. If that happens we have no chance because $$$$ will exchange hands. We're the most valuable college basketball program, maybe we need to start paying people too!

Um ... People are taking photos on airplanes and posting itineraries on message boards. That's obsessing.

Saw the tweet and thought it germane to Card topics.  Didn't take the picture.  Didn't go looking for a picture.  Didn't know anything about an itinerary.

You must have enough interest in the recruiting process and this kid.  You posted to it.

Such a reaction on "obsession" seems very peculiar from a guy with 18K posts  to this board or from someone who doesn't understand social media, one or the other.  Or both.

I understand everything. I post on here because I obsess over cards hoops. Fair enough. But I draw the line with following day to day hour to hour of 17 year old lives. It's creepy and weird.

I am not singleing you out. I understand why you posted it and that you didn't take it. I just find the whole process strange.
