Terrence Jones isn't going to spontaneously change this season into some unstoppable, basketball-like robot, capable of turning his arms into mechanical scoring machines like some Hollywood blockbuster (although his new biceps might lead some to believe otherwise). But this is undoubtedly a different Terrence Jones. Something about him is not quite the same. Underneath the same laidback exterior and teenage grin is a different type of beast unlike anything Kentucky fans saw last season. Jones has gone through a transformation.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
