Terrence Williams sticking around for his senior season, according to Rick Bozich’s blog today. That’s great for T-Will and equally fantastic for U of L fans who want nothing better than to see him become a major force on the college scene.
There are two T-Wills, in case you haven’t noticed the past two seasons:
First, there’s the Pre-Conference Play T-Will missing shots from every angle on the floor and blowing wide open layups around the rim while still managing to look sensational and making fans wonder whether he would have been a better football player.
Then there’s the T-Will who shows up for Conference Play (and the UK game), directing traffic getting his teammates in position, thriving on passing the ball and placing great value on high percentage shots. This is the T-Will who will be indispensable with seven or eight unseasoned college players coming aboard next year.

The news about T-Will is offset by the announcement by junior Lamar Myles of the football Cards that he will enter the National Football League draft. He was the most dependable player on the defensive team, recording 128 tackles — 74 more than the next closest player.
His departure poses an immediate challenge for new defensive coordinator Ron English, who inherits a unit that was 85th in the country in total defense. Things had to get worse before they get better.
