What Happens When Kyle Witljer is Interviewed by a Playboy Playmate


Yesterday was a surreal day at Rupp Arena for a number of reasons. It was of course a great UK victory, in which the Cats won by 15 and Terrence Jones made positive steps towards regaining his old offensive form. You also had the bizarre #OccupyKroger movement, that got the Big Blue Nation in full attack mode and led to some of the quickest success of any spontaneous revolution in history. Then outside of the arena, you had the sight of a gun show taking place, leading to scenes such as this one outside Rupp Arena before the game, chronicled by Rob Dauster:

Thus with all the absurdity, it was the perfect day for the boys from the great college basketball blog to make their first appearance in Rupp Arena. Rob Dauster and Troy Machir are doing a trip similar to the one the KSR crew embarked on two years ago, spending three weeks traveling the country attending college basketball games and writing a diary of their experiences. We spent the day with them yesterday and had a great time showing them around Lexington. It is always interesting to hear an outsider’s view of what goes on at a UK game and thus their journal entry of the day in Lexington is a must read for all UK fans.

Most interesting to me is their chronicle of an interaction between former Playboy model Megan Dills and Kyle Wiltjer in the media room. Dills (pictured above) was covering the game for another UK website, an ambitious move that may force the Herald Leader to counter by attempting to make @KentuckyBadgirl the new football beat writer. While there, she decided to interview the players, and BallinisaHabit chronicled her interaction with Kyle Wiltjer thusly:

After the game, when the players came out for interviews, there wasn’t a single person that wanted to interview Kyle Wiltjer, so this girl — whose name is Megan Dills — went over to interview him. The conversation went like this:

Dills: “My name is Megan, I guess I’ll interview you. What do you like to do besides basketball?”

Wiltjer: “I don’t know. Hang out with friends.”

Dills: “Do you have a girlfriend?”

Wiltjer: “No. I’m done.”

As he walked out, one of UK’s SIDs said to Wiltjer “you better hurry up.”

I did not witness this interaction, but I can only imagine the awkwardness. While there, Dills took pictures with many media members and became a good addition to the overall absurdity of the day. If there was ever a day for a set of national bloggers to make their way through Lexington, yesterday was it. And they have chronicled the entirety of their day here. Make sure and check it out and follow them on Twitter as a sign of BBN love: @BallinisaHabit @biahtroymachir

    FIRST!

    Matt Jones did you see this link: http://espn.go.com/nba/team/roster/_/name/orl/orlando-magic

    The link reports the 2011-12 salaries of the Orlando Magic. Your old buddy Daniel Orton is getting paid over a million dollars this year. Again: OVER. ONE. MILLION. DOLLARS!!

    I wonder how many dollars that will break down to per goaltend he has this year.

    Also great to see my man Liggins earn $473,604 this year. He deserves every penny, but I selfishly would have loved to see him on the same team as MKG and Davis. The three of them would have absolutely locked down every opponent.

  3. dill pickle

    can we all agree that megan dills is kind of a butterface; as far as playboy models go;

  4. Mr Schwump

    2, yep and he’s making more than you and Jones combined many times over.

  5. SexnNursinHomes

    3- you know you’d tap it.

  6. Glenn Pakulak

    Eww… woodland camo went out with disco… and that was about a decade after her boots went out.

    Mirrors and fashion mags, people. Use them.

  7. nlk

    So, Kyle don’t like girls? smh

    Youth is so wasted on the young

  8. Daniel

    She’s calling you out on Twitter.

  9. JMT

    #2. I believe that is one dollar per goal tend

  10. CatFan22

    That goofy girl should not have been allowed back there. Kyle Wiltjer has a strong faith and didn’t want to answer stupid personal questions. I don’t blame the kid one bit. Episodes like this will limit who is in the media room in the future.

  11. abby Watson

    Will someone please explain to me the significance of the exchange between Kyle and the butterfaced girl? I don’t get it.

  12. Rick

    Its just KSR making fun of a white kid again

  13. Dave in Kabul

    Playboy does wonders with makeup and CGI. lol If they can make that chic into a Playboy Playmate. F*CK! They could probably make Oprah Winfrey into a Model for one of the Womens magazines. HF&JFC!

  14. schwing

    i don’t get it. what’s good or bad about asking kyle that question?

  15. KidCody

    I’m not saying she has a butterface, but I’ve heard she’s sponsored by Paula Deen.

  16. Dave in Kabul

    Why do people get so defensive when someone makes fun of the White Kids? Are they a protected class? Do they need protection?

    It was a humorous anecdote about media interaction with a UK Baller.

    Hypersensitive bunch of freakin’ panzies!!!

  17. The Cheese

    It is probably difficult to speak when you are sportin wood.

  18. Mike

    When Kyle was accosted by the playmate he simply had no DEFENSE.

  19. bbn4ever

    What did the sid mean bye telling wiltjer u better hurry up?? That went right over my head, i didnt understand that at all

  20. dude

    That’s a pretty sweet AR.

  21. Angry Boys

    I really lost respect for Playboy tonight.

  22. Mike

    19. He knew that Kyle had to get to Porcino’s.

  23. Shot Calla

    19. I agree, I have no clue what that transcript was suppose to mean.

  24. bbn4ever

    For all who is tryin to crack on miss dill, do yourself a huge favor and just stop!! We all know the girl is smokin hot, dont be mad at her cause your girl takes a back seat in comparison

  25. Angry Boys

    24. Look at the pictures from her twitter account. Respectfully.

  26. Calipari'sInYourEar

    Why are people still calling her a playmate? She wasn’t.

    Playmates are selected for the centerfold of each magazine. She was one of a half dozen girls from around schools to participate in a hot “college” girls article.

    BUTTERFACE IS NOT A PLAYMATE!

    #BUTTERFACEISNOTAPLAYMATE

  27. Calipari'sInYourEar

    Why does Matt keep calling her that? Because you peckerwoods will click the link more if he does.

    #PECKERWOODSHELPBUTTERFACEGETCLICKS

  28. wicked

    Nasty

  29. Calipari'sInYourEar

    Also, thanks Matt for:

    1. Using this girl to get clicks during the Indiana post game fallout (and taking her word for it or fabricating her actual association with Playboy).
    2. Now that you made her a household name, we get to see more of her (but only the part that actually no one wants to see).

  30. #butterface

    Rick Pitino would tap that

  31. big tim

    what did matt do to her she was on twitter calling him a cry baby and everything else

  32. Newtintheville

    She claimed Matt was talking to someone at Rupp about why she was in the media room since she was not actually media. She said she was there “working” with a media outlet (I don’t know for sure but suspect it was WildcatWorld.com).

    She met that guy at Bungalo Joes a few weeks back after her infamous issues at Assembly Hall garnered media attention. She was there to do an interview on 1450 radio that evening and they all tweeted out photos.

    I guess she took exception to Matt questioning her presence in the media room. He probably shouldn’t have bothered with it (if he did) but this story is likely a direct result of her public attacks on him & KSR.

    She’s been trying to call him out again tonight on Twitter (unsuccessfully). It probably only gets worse for her on the radio tomorrow.

  33. Locker Room Spy

    She was lost wandering around the media room. She had no clue what she was doing. Wiltjer clearly realized this and blew her off. As for “no one wanting to interview him,” the bloggers are wrong and clearly do not know how it works with post-game interviews. Media move from player to player. But that’s why they are bloggers and not real journalists. Fact-checking is a nice thing now and then…

  34. REALinBBN

    Butterface does not represent the true blue women in Big Blue Nation. The attention she receives is absurd. The “incident” at IU, this joke of an experience “working with a media outlet” & her repeated claim to fame as a playmate (which is NOT accurate, bc she was not featured in a spread, but as a “girl of the SEC” 4 years ago) needs to be put to rest. It’s January; the beginning of SEC play, during another season in which we have an excellent shot at winning the national title. We have games & competition to focus on, people. If readers need naked girls to pass time between games, might I suggest you buy this month’s issue of Playboy, which I’m positive will showcase MUCH prettier girls than this attention-seeking almost has-been.

    P.S. Those of you saying “you know you’d hit it” need to raise their standards. Seriously.

  35. REALinBBN

    Correction: Raise *your standards. Unless you’re really THAT desperate.

  36. Calipari'sInYourEar

    I love to see Matt edit the post and change “Playmate” to “model”.

    Too bad you didn’t indicate that an edit was made.

  37. SexnNursinHomes

    34- I raise mny hand. I’d eat it in a ny second. but i’m a trashy scumbag tho

  38. Hoss

    20- not really. Looks pretty stock to me. Like, right off the shelf-stock. In fact, if that is a real ACOG on top of it, the optic is worth more than the entire rifle.

  39. REALinBBN

    37. I pity your tongue.

  40. SexnNursinHomes

    39- yeah, me too. but hey, I’ve tasted worse.

  41. Derek

    I find it odd that the picture of the guy carrying the gun is weird enough to people to post it. What is the country coming too?

  42. TheNewOriginal

    “I’m Done”? Already, after only one question? At least Pitino made it through the small talk and for a few seconds.

  43. NBA league pass

    I would LOVE to see pictures of all you fat hill jacks that are saying this girl is not hot. Seriously. And who cares if she is a “playmate” or a “model”, does it really make that much of a difference…she was in Playboy.

  44. two times

    I hit it two times!!

  45. uncertain

    sounds like Kyle isn’t impressed by pretty women…

  46. Calipari'sInYourEar

    #43 – NBA league pass – Playboy Playmates are of an elite class.

    I could find 5 girls at any Hooters that are hotter than ButterFace Dills.

    Jennifer Walcott was a Playboy Playmate

    If you can’t see the difference, then your a buffoon. It’s never too late to stop being a buffoon. You decide when you’ll stop.
