BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Think Dan Wolken Will Admit When He’s Wrong?

You know my favorite moment of the sports year so far?  When Demarcus Cousins saved that tweet from Clay Travis from way back when just for the moment to prove him wrong.  Because in today’s day and age it doesn’t seem anybody has any accountability for when they make predictions that won’t happen until years later.  Hunting through the KSR archives, I found this little nugget from Dan Wolken.  Remember him?  He was a former Memphis media guy who seemed a little bitter when Cal left Memphis for UK.  He made these comments to The Big Lead back in 2011:

Q: As someone familiar with John Calipari, how’s this scenario: He wins 
a title at Kentucky – the Wildcats will probably open No. 2 in the 
rankings – and the Knicks underwhelm in the playoffs. Could you see 
New York firing Mike D’Antoni and Calipari giving the NBA another 
shot? I can’t see him coming back to the NBA if the job isn’t right, 
but the Knicks – who have two stars – would certainly be right.

WOLKEN: Whether he wins a title at Kentucky or not, there’s no question in my mind that coaching the Knicks is his true dream job. I know Kentucky fans will say that he failed in the NBA before, so why would he want to go back? The truth is that’s why he’d want to go back. Cal doesn’t like the idea he’s perceived as a failure in the NBA (which is actually a bit unfair, though an entirely different can of worms), and it’s probably inevitable that he gives it one more shot before he retires. Who knows how it plays out, but if D’Antoni isn’t there and the Knicks have Amare and Carmelo with the possibility to add Chris Paul, there isn’t a job in all of basketball with more upside. Is Cal going to leave Kentucky to go coach the Raptors or the Bobcats? No, but I think he’ll be in the NBA again at some point. And the nature of the Kentucky job is such that he’ll see the NBA as a bit of an escape. The Kentucky job, especially the pace he’s trying to maintain, is impossible to sustain forever. In Memphis he and his family were able to live fairly normally. He was a celebrity, but Memphis is a bigger city with an NBA team and more going on. In Lexington, it’s just suffocating. I think he knows he can’t do that for eight or 10 years.

Cal is now 6 years completed with the Cats and now with Cleveland in the Finals, it becomes pretty unlikely David Blatt will be fired. Plus, that whole contract extension. Point being, Calipari likely will be at Kentucky AT LEAST 8 years, if the not the 10 also mentioned. Will Dan Wolken be asked about those comments? Probably not.

BBN in the Sahara Desert wants Tuesday Night News and Views

BBN, you’ve outdone yourselves. Over the years, I’ve seen pictures of Kentucky fans in some crazy places, but this one of a Cats fan in a John Wall (or Twany Beckham) jersey in the Sahara Desert may take the cake.

Sir, you and your camel have earned yourselves some news and views. Please drink a little bit of water because you must be parched.

UK announced the signing of Mychal Mulder

The JuCo shooting guard signed his letter of intent a while back, but UK made the addition official today in a press release:

“I’m so excited to be coaching Mychal,” John Calipari said. “He’s been in a great program the last two years and been pushed hard by a terrific coach. His teams have won and he’s shared, yet he was still rewarded as a First Team All-American. He fits our program.”

I’m not sure what the delay was in announcing Mulder. Maybe UK just wanted to toss some bread crumbs the media’s way during the worst of the summer news drought.

The SEC Meetings are underway in Destin, Florida

…and I’m a little bummed KSR didn’t send me. The meetings, which run through Friday, are pretty much just an excuse for the league’s coaches to hang out in Florida for a week and call it “work,” but a little bit of news is already trickling out. Here are some items that are on the agenda:

  • An early signing period: Outgoing SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said today that the SEC is against the proposed early signing period in mid-December. In February, Mark Stoops became one of the few league coaches to speak out in favor of the early signing period, which would help put an end to big boy programs swooping in and stealing commits from smaller programs late in the game. The SEC is pretty much the big boy league, so the conference coming out against the early signing period isn’t surprising.
  • Graduate transfers: Another hot topic in college football right now is graduate transfers. Currently, the SEC does not allow graduate transfers in football unless the player has a hardship waiver or meets certain criteria. Meanwhile, the ACC doesn’t have any restrictions on graduate transfers. This topic has been in the news a lot lately after former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson decided to transfer to Florida State after visiting Florida and Georgia.
  • Satellite Camps: The NCAA doesn’t allow coaches to host football camps outside of their state, but there’s a loophole in which coaches can be “guest instructors” at satellite camps anywhere they’d like. The SEC is the only conference that doesn’t allow this practice, and with Penn State’s James Franklin and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh capitalizing on the loophole with satellite camps in hot recruiting areas, there is growing discontent. Today, Slive said the SEC will propose legislation to the NCAA to prohibit satellite camps. Good luck with that.
  • Cost of attendance: Kentucky currently has the lowest cost of attendance (COA) in the conference at $2,284, while Tennessee has the highest at $5,666. The Power 5 conferences are pushing for an annual stipend for student-athletes to pay the COA, but the discrepancies between each school’s COA have some coaches, including Nick Saban, complaining that schools with higher COAs will have an unfair recruiting advantage. If anyone has a good suggestion on how to fix this, please get in your car and drive to Destin right now.

All of those issues are obviously very important, but I’m much more interested in the following:

  • Which SEC coach breaks out the cargo shorts first (my money’s on Bret Bielema)
  • Which media member gets a Periscope of Steve Spurrier on the beach
  • If Nick Saban wears this stupid hat again:

  • What SPF Mark Stoops ends up using because you know it’s got to be crazy high
  • Rookie initiation for Jim McElwain
  • The ratio of media members talking to basketball coaches to media members talking to football coaches
  • Late night snapchats of Spurrier and Les Miles doing something crazy because you know they will

What else?

Matt will emcee of the Fancy Farm Picnic

One bit of exciting news broke tonight when we found out that our own Matt Jones will emcee the annual Fancy Farm Picnic on Saturday, August 1. The Fancy Farm Picnic has become the inaugural event for the statewide fall political season, and being named the emcee is a huge honor for Matt and it also speaks volumes about the popularity of KSR. For more information, check out the press release from earlier.

Willie, Karl, Dakari, and Devin hung out at the “Call of Duty” headquarters today

The four Cats spent their day at Treyarch Studios in Santa Monica, California, where they tested out the new Blacks Ops III. As a video game noob (who, albeit, knows that word), I don’t really know what that means, but I would imagine it’s heaven for an 18-year-old boy.

Surprisingly, Karl Towns wins most interesting outfit of the day.

Eric Bledsoe hung out with Montrezl Harrell and DeSean Jackson at the Cavs/Hawks game

First Trey Lyles, now Eric Bledsoe? Montrezl is buddying up with a lot of La Familia.

Our own Matt Jones will emcee the Fancy Farm picnic this summer

Congrats to our own Matt Jones, who will emcee the annual Fancy Farm Picnic on Saturday, August 1. Here’s the news release, which hit the wires tonight:

Kentucky’s Premier Political Event Announces Major Kentucky Media Member to Emcee 2015 Political Speaking

Matt Jones, founder of Kentucky Sports Radio, to Emcee Fancy Farm Political Speaking

(Fancy Farm, KY) When the political world descends upon Fancy Farm, KY on August 1st, one of Kentucky’s most well-known sports commentators will be wrangling the political rodeo that has become a must–attend event for Kentucky politicians. Matt Jones, founder of Kentucky Sports Radio, has been selected to serve as the emcee for the 135th annual St. Jerome Catholic Church Picnic’s political speaking. Jones is currently host to Kentucky Sports Radio that has over 30 affiliates across Kentucky and West Virginia, making Jones
the most listened to local voice on Kentucky airwaves.

“We are delighted to have Matt join us for the 2015 Fancy Farm picnic,” said Mark Wilson, chair of the political speaking at the picnic. “While many Kentuckians know about our famous picnic, we think having someone with the reach of Matt’s radio program and website will bring expanded awareness and enhancement to our festivities and political speaking event.”

This year’s picnic will feature candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Auditor of Public Accounts, State Treasurer, and Commissioner of Agriculture. Invitations to speak are also extended to current office holders being the local state legislators, statewide office holders along with the local U.S. Representative and both U.S. Senators.

“It is a tremendous honor and I am very excited to be a part of Fancy Farm this year,” said Matt Jones. “I look forward to helping bring the uniqueness of Fancy Farm to a new audience.”

Jones recently hosted a gubernatorial debate on his radio show, which has become a go-to-stop for major political candidates.

“Kentuckians love their sports and politics. Having Matt serve as our emcee is bringing two Kentucky traditions together and will only heighten the interest in our beloved picnic. We can’t wait for the first Saturday in August to get things going,” remarked Wilson.

The Fancy Farm Picnic, which serves as a charitable fundraiser for the sponsor, St. Jerome Catholic Church, has quickly transformed into Kentucky’s inaugural event for the statewide fall political season. Some of the nation’s most prominent politicians have addressed the crowds from the speakers’ stand, including U.S. Vice-President Alben W. Barkley, former Governor and U.S. Senator A.B. “Happy” Chandler, Vice-President Al Gore and Vice-Presidential candidate Lloyd Bentson, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The picnic, also known as the world’s largest one day barbeque, annually attracts over 10,000 visitors each year.

This is a huge honor. Bring it in the most ridiculous manner possible, Matt.

8 Things UK can do with the Kirwan and Blanding Towers

UK recently announced plans to keep the Kirwan and Blanding dormitory towers vacant for the upcoming school year. The 23-story towers have been a fixture on UK’s campus since they were built in 1963, but over the years, have fallen more and more into disrepair. Demolishing or renovating the towers would apparently cost more than $10 million, so there is no long-term plan for them yet. Until the administration decides what to do with them, they’ll remain vacant.

Well, just letting the towers sit there sounds pretty boring to me, so I spent the day coming up with some ideas on what the university can do with them. Shoutout to Fake Barney for his contributions.

1. Use them for the ultimate basketball walk-on try out

Sam Malone, Brian Long, and Tod Lanter are gone, and while UK has already added one walk-on for next year’s team in Jonny David, there are still a few spots open. Being a UK walk-on is the dream of a million kids across the Commonwealth and it isn’t for the faint of heart, so why not hold a Hunger Games-style competition to find the cream of the crop? Each floor could have a different UK basketball-related obstacle, such as:

  • Basketball drills (obviously)
  • Dodging jersey chasers
  • Who can post the most interesting behind-the-scenes Instagram/tweets
  • Racing the stairs against Alan Cutler
  • Answering stupid questions from the media while still being polite
  • real life Super Smash Brothers Tournament
  • Turning one floor into a giant cold tub to see who stays in the longest
  • Reciting the entire first chapter of “Players First”
  • Clapping/cheering competition
  • Middle of the huddle hype dance-offs

To make things interesting, release a live wildcat in the tower to eliminate the weakest competitors. Whoever comes out first/alive makes the team.

1

2. Let them decompose for 25 years then use them as a zombie apocalypse training center

The towers are already in pretty bad shape, so why not let nature take them over for a while and then use them as a training ground for a future zombie apocalypse ala “The Walking Dead”? Willie Cauley-Stein is a huge fan of the show and often told reporters that one day, he wants to learn to fight zombies. Once Willie’s done with basketball, invite him to run the “Willie Cauley-Stein Center for Fighting Zombies and Making Cool Graffiti.”

3. Put all of the UK fraternities in one and the sororities in the other

Think of how fun this would be. Frat houses are gross anyways, so put all of the frats in one building, one per floor, and sororities in the other. Install zip lines so people can go between the two for parties. Put in cameras and make it the ultimate college reality show.

4

4. Turn them into a Crazy UK Fan Rehabilitation Center

The Kentucky fan base is the best in all of sports, but we definitely have our share of crazies. To help the crazies “see the light,” lock them in the towers for “rehab.” What qualifies as “crazy”?

  • People who email Matt more than three times per week
  • People who call into Calipari’s radio show to complain or tell him how to coach
  • Anyone who complains about autograph tours
  • Actually, anyone who still writes letters to the editor
  • KSR comment section trolls
  • Anyone who wants to “FARRRR CAL”

To give the crazies perspective, put TVs in each room and play all of the Billy Gillispie games on loop.

2

5. Sell them to KSR for our new headquarters

Sure, they’d need some major renovations, but our sponsors can help us out with that, right? Wendy’s, Boone’s Butcher Shop, and Sleep Outfitters could all open up shop, and we could make at least one of the towers into an entertainment complex for fans. Fake Barney can run the daycare, Shannon could host booty-shaking contests, Drew could open a bar, Ally and Fake David Beckham could give soccer lessons, Josephine could run a chicken and dumplings restaurant, I could finally have an apartment to stay in when I come in for games…the possibilities are endless.

6. Give one floor to each UK player in the pros

In the Calipari Era, former players returning to campus has become an annual tradition. As a way to say thank you, why not give each UK player drafted a floor of the towers? There are 23 floors in each, 46 total. If all seven players are drafted this summer, there will be 25 UK basketball players in the pros, so give some to the NFL Cats as well. Renovations shouldn’t be a problem since they all make pretty good money.

Doron Lamb may not be in the NBA anymore, but he was part of a National Championship team and he’s hilarious, so give him a penthouse.  Can you imagine the parties? Who up? Doron up, up in the penthouse, girl.

7. Turn them into Haunted Towers

Between the football and basketball programs, we have enough ghosts to fill up more than two towers. Billy Gillispie probably needs something to do, so invite him to be the resident ghost. Not spooky enough? Play Kentucky Joe over the intercom 24/7.

8. Win #9 and burn them down

Couch fires are so 2012.


2017 Georgia QB picks up UK offer

Chase Brice from Loganville, Georgia received a scholarship offer to play football at the University of Kentucky today. The 6-foot-3, pro-style quarterback also has offers from Louisville and Miami, among others.

Kentucky does not have any commitments from the 2017 class. The Cats have one QB commitment in 2016 in Gunnar Hoak.


You need to see J.D. Harmon’s one-handed backflip catch

jd-harmon

Kentucky cornerback J.D. Harmon made an incredible one-handed catch while doing a backflip at the UK football practice facility, and shared it on his Instagram today. I didn’t think it was possible to top Javess Blue’s backflip catch earlier this month, but Harmon managed to do that by using only one hand.

Messing around with my dawg @loso_onetre the other day

A video posted by JD (@badboyprince11) on

Now let’s see how he defends the pass next season. That’s what matters.


Cal and Jamal Murray in the Alltech Herald

Alltech Herald

Alltech Herald

In a Behind The Scenes feature on pg. 22 of the latest edition of the Alltech Herald, there’s this photo of John Calipari and Jamal Murray on the Alltech Rebelation stage during Murray’s official visit to UK. As the caption points out, Cal is previewing his talk the next day, the one that blew up with the mention of last season’s goal being eight players in the NBA Draft.

Murray looks comfortable listening to Coach Cal. He should probably go ahead and commit to Kentucky.


Two weeks of guest hosts to take over KSR

One week from today, Matt Jones will take his two-week summer vacation, leaving behind Kentucky Sports Radio radio to a list of special guest hosts. The schedule for those two weeks is now finalized — with the exception of one open date — beginning with Will T. Scott on Monday, June 1.

Here’s the entire schedule:

Monday, June 1: Will T. Scott
Tuesday, June 2: Sklar Brothers
Wednesday, June 3: Jay Bilas
Thursday, June 4: UK Football Coaching Staff
Friday, June 5: Tim Couch and Jared Lorenzen

Monday, June 8: Jon Rothstein
Tuesday, June 9: Matthew Mitchell
Wednesday, June 10: Josh Hopkins
Thursday, June 11: Seth Greenberg
Friday, June 12: OPEN (Finebaum, hopefully)

It’s going to be a very fun two weeks of KSR. (No offense, Matt.)


Coach Cal to Thon Maker: “When you’re ready to be recruited, call me”

Only John Calipari has the swagger to tell a five-star recruit to call him when he’s ready to be recruited, and that’s exactly what Calipari told Thon Maker recently.

In a story that got lost over Memorial Day weekend, Maker’s guardian, Ed Smith, told Zagsblog, “Like Cal said, when you’re ready to be recruited, call me.”

Indiana and Arizona State have had the most contact with Maker lately, but Calipari and Kentucky are still in the mix without wearing out the phone lines. To simply tell Maker to initiate the contact when he’s ready is pretty ballsy, and that’s why Cal is Cal.

The plan is still for Maker to join a college basketball program in December with immediate eligibility for the back half of the season.

[Zagsblog]


UK officially introduces Mychal Mulder

Today UK officially announced the signing of Mychal Mulder to the 2015 class, joining incoming freshmen Skal Labissiere, Isaiah Briscoe and Charles Matthews for the No. 2 recruiting class in college basketball. Mulder signed his Letter of Intent earlier this month, becoming John Calipari’s first JUCO transfer at Kentucky since your boy Eloy Vargas.

“I’m so excited to be coaching Mychal,” John Calipari said. “He’s been in a great program the last two years and been pushed hard by a terrific coach. His teams have won and he’s shared, yet he was still rewarded as a First Team All-American. He fits our program.”

Mulder is scheduled to arrive on campus on June 11.

 


John Calipari giving away his used Drake tickets is so John Calipari

For fans interested in owning two used tickets to an Eastern Conference Quarterfinals game in Toronto, boy do I have some good news for you. John Calipari is giving away his used tickets, given to him by Drake, in a random drawing through the CoachCal.com Twitter account. Calipari signed the tickets to the April 18th game, a 93-86 Wizards win.

Because John Calipari is always a step ahead and every little thing he does is a calculated move toward something bigger, I’m going to overthink this and say he is doing this to show off his friendship with Drake and that he sat courtside for a Raptors game. He’s playing it cool in case someone out there from Toronto notices. Someone like, oh, Jamal Murray, maybe.

Anyway, you can enter to win the tickets through @CoachCalDotCom on Twitter. I don’t know why anyone would want two used Toronto Raptors tickets but they’re up for grabs.

 


Landon Young picks up an offer from Florida

Landon Young picked up an offer from Auburn a couple weeks ago and I warned the school to stay away from UK’s prized commitment. Well today, Young picked up an offer from Florida and now we can officially worry because his stock is climbing.

The Lexington native, ranked as the No. 15 offensive tackle, committed to Kentucky almost two years ago. He is a longtime fan of the Cats, but with new offers from Florida and Auburn and interest from other major programs like Alabama, Mark Stoops might have to put in some extra work to keep him around.


Malik Newman explains why Mississippi State

maliknewman

There’s really no reasonable explanation within the NCAA rules for an elite recruit to choose Mississippi State over Kentucky. None. That shouldn’t happen. Ever.

But it did happen when Malik Newman chose the Bulldogs over the Cats last month, a decision he explained today in his blog over at USA Today.

Newman writes, “Everyone knows that my dad played at Mississippi State back in the day and it’s cool to me to be able to play at the same school. I won’t be wearing his number or anything like that because I’m my own person and my own man. I want to create my own legacy there. He just drew out the blueprint for me playing there!”

The five-star combo guard also says he was hit with vulgar tweets from upset fans (you’re better than that, BBN) and he didn’t sleep the night before announcing his decision.

Read more here.

Then go back to your life without Malik Newman in it. Forget him all over again.
