U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-of-K! U-of-K!
We’re in the middle of taping a commercial for KSTV so let’s run through this…
— Ken McDonald is out at Western Kentucky after the Hilltoppers’ home loss to Louisiana Lafayette last night. Apparently, counting to six is a major requirement for the head coaching job in Bowling Green, and McDonald just couldn’t do it. Former Kentucky Wesleyan coach Ray Harper will serve as interim head coach in his place. John Pelphrey is rumored to be a strong candidate for the job and I’ll give you two reasons why Western would be a great place for him to land back on his feet: (1) It’s a mid-major job in the state that loves him. (2) The opportunity for “Big Red” slogans. Do the right thing, Western.
— Thomas Boswell of The Washington Post isn’t impressed by John Wall. Boswell says he needs to work on his game before he can lead.
— Like I mentioned before, we’re taping a TV commercial today at the KSTV studio with Radio Ron and it has the potential to be hilarious. If not hilarious, it will be incredibly awkward and embarrassing. We’re ready for either but there’s no way it falls anywhere in between the two categories. It’s all or nothing and we’re excited. Look for it on your televisions soon.
— The leading scorer for Ole Miss was dismissed from the team yesterday after an unfortunate pizza delivery/drug bust. Police were knocking on the door where Dundrecous Nelson lives but couldn’t get a response from Nelson inside. When the officer turned to leave, he passed a pizza delivery guy who was heading for the same address. Nelson answered the door for the pizza and was confronted by a large pepperoni pie and Oxford’s finest.
— Calipari is meeting with the media right now. We’ll have more at 4:00 when our KSR intern returns from the presser.
