As Archie Goodwin Plays Poorly; Big Blue Nation’s Face Gets Even Bluer

Little Rock native Archie Goodwin, two-time Arkansas high school player of the year and projected lottery pick, isn’t playing so well during his season of pro apprenticeship at Kentucky.

Indeed, last night he likely had the worst game of his career to date, shooting 2 for 12 for 7 points while turning it over three times. By the time the dust cleared, Kentucky had lost to Alabama 59-55 on Tuesday night and the 18-year-old, unfairly or not, received much of the blame as Big Blue Nation turned red-faced.

Below is the ugly underbelly of all the attention and celebrity afforded the modern high profile college athlete.  You’ll find a few messages of support among enough flak to down a Stealth Bomber:

  1. Why didn’t Archie just straight up tell Cal at the recruitment meeting that his last name was an ironic joke? #goodwin #psh

  2. Archie Goodwin is like Russell Westbrook on his bad day if you blind folded him as well.

  3. I hear that when Archie Goodwin is asked to sign a basketball he keeps it for himself… That’s a lie… Who would ask him to sign anything?
