07:07 AM ET 05.08 | As the clock ticks on Andrew Wiggins, and four fan bases -- in Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State -- wait, what if he just picked Louisville? Well, calm down, because the nation's top basketball recruit is almost certainly not going to pick Louisville. But if the woman who has put a roof over his head for the past two years had any say, she would point Wiggins toward the Cardinals. "If it was my choice, I'd say he should go to Louisville," said Lesley Thomas, who has been Wiggins' host mom in West Virginia since he enrolled at Huntington Prep. "Yes, I would have, because I love Coach Pitino's program." Of course, it's not Thomas' choice, and she doesn't really have any say.

Wait, if Wiggins is Canadian, then, his parents are??? Floridians who just happen to be in Canada when he was born? Maple-leafed snowbirds who just decided to matriculate at Florida's "other university?" Bloody liberals who chose FSU because of its friendly agreement with the Seminoles (a "tribe" made up of refuges from other southeastern "tribes" decimated by unscrupulous, evil, European invaders) and chose to live in Canada because of it's a socialist haven for liberal-minded whimps?

Too bad his folks are FSU grads... Most say its between UK and them.. UNC is in the mix though

Ok. That explains it. Looking at this kid's short list, I was wondering how the hell FSU got into the mix. I love FSU, but our hoops program isn't exactly on the same level as his other choices.

As a 'Nole, I wanted to post some smart-**** response, but I can't. I'm laughing too hard. Nice post. Freakin' hilarious! :-)
