Listen to James Young’s KSR interview


Stand up, Ryan.

James Young stopped by the Kentucky Sports Radio Lexington studio today to tell KSR all about his time at Kentucky. The highlight of the interview was Young admitting to being successful with the ladies on campus.

“I had some girls.”

“Some? Under 10?”

“Nah, like three.”

Private life aside, Young said his favorite moment at UK was his dunk against UConn in the national championship game. He also walked us through his shot against Wichita State, admitting the play wasn’t for him but he took it anyway. “Coach Cal knows I don’t listen sometimes.”

Have a listen to Young’s interview below:

    1. who cares

      this isn’t a yankees fan page

    Is it weird that I want him to read me bedtime stories?

    1. MakeMineKyBlue

      LOLOLOL!!!! He could just read a menu and it would sound GOOD!!!!

  4. King Kelly Coleman

    just for fun, with Derby weekend coming up can you post the video of Ryan getting body slammed in the mud puddle? Please!!!!

    I love (actually, not) that you think this is the ‘highlight’ of the interview. The language implies that women are assets to accumulate or to conquer. I ‘had’ (possessive) some girls. We really need to change the way we talk about women.

    1. BlueintheLou

      Lighten up Francis

    2. hell cat

      I’m surprised he only accumulated and conquered 3, actually.

    3. Some girl

      Who cares, I had me some James Young.

    4. how so?

      i had some girls

      girls –> girlfriends

      i had some girlfriends

      plural –> singular

      i had a girlfriend

      this statement implies nothing you just said… it is a perfectly reasonable statement… quit being an obnoxious man hater, get back in the kitchen, and make me a sammich

    5. Sammich Maker

      how so….should I add bologna today or do you just prefer to stick to plain ol mayonnaise sammiches?

    Moderator, you allow a post like #1 above but you don’t allow mine that only mentions how sick Young’s dunk was but that I still hate that we didn’t win? I didn’t say anything against him or the team at all. In fact I don’t know how many times I have said I’m proud of the team for the run. Is the moderator actually an automated thing, like a robot system? If so the algorithms need to change. I NEVER post anything that is not clean, so I don’t get it.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      It’s still awaiting moderation. Hmmm. Maybe it’s a bug in the server.

    Chris G., and everybody else who has been butt-hurt by an ‘awaiting moderation’, including me: This seems to be a random thing, it was nothing in your post that caused it, you’re just the unlucky 100th passenger who was randomly pulled aside by TSA for that extra-special second pat-down. If you’ve read some of the posts that get thru, you’ll realize ni KSR staffer is reading these for proper content.

    1. Rixter

      or spelling!

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I think you are correct sir!

    Well, Matt slammed the “Pikeville Hillbillies” with Julius the other day, and then today he tried to do the same with James even though James isn’t going to Pikeville. I am from the area, but have been gone for 45 years, but I still respect the fine people there. Julius, those people in Pikeville may talk a little different, and many may not have Matt’s money, but they will shower you with admiration, and treat you like a king. One can’t pay much attention to Matt since he’s from the ‘Ville, and was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. I can see how he has a hard time relating to those people, and would rather laugh and make fun of them. Go ahead Matt, ban me. I’ll just make the same statements on the OTHER site.

    1. Gman

      Chip on your shoulder much? I don’t know Matt personally, but I’m willing to bet he worked his ass off for everything he has. He made a light hearted joke, get your head out of your ass.

    2. ukjaybrat

      When some of these kids get here from bigger cities, the perceptions of the stereotypical “hick” or “hillbilly” are softened a bit because they never leave Lexington. I don’t think he was slamming them so much as he was warning a kid from Dallas and a kid from Rochester that there are places in KY that are completely different once you venture outside of Lexington or Louisville.

      Nothing wrong with that. Besides, most hardcore rednecks I know are damn proud of that fact.

    3. Duh

      You must not listen to Matt very much or read this site very much because if you did you would know he is from Middlesboro, not Louisville and stands up for the folks of Eastern KY all the time. He didn’t live in Louisville until he was hired by a law firm there. What in the world makes you think he was born with a silver spoon? The reason he has a great education is because he worked hard and got full scholarships to college and law school. If you are an honorable person at least know what you are talking about before you go around spreading falsehoods. Or are you just a hater bound and determined to hate?
      BTW, if you haven’t noticed, Matt makes fun of himself and pretty much everything else that isn’t a sad tragedy. It is all part of the “University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.”

    I like the way JY is standing in that picture, haha. Funny kid.

  10. Randy #1VolsFan Jenkins

    I’m a Vol Fan in Kentucky and I have to say that James Young is one of the most overrated players, could not pass and his athleticism was the only thing that kept him doing what he did. He’ll be a decent NBDL player and then a nice career in Europe. Can’t wait to see what Coach Tyndall has in store for the Rupp Runts next season. #Vol4Lyfe #WeBothHateFlorida

    1. Tommythompson

      Won’t you get you vol lovin butt outta here! Fn troll! This is a UK page dedicate to the greatest team in the history of sports! Go cry in a hole around Knoxville with all them gang bangin criminals you call student athletes!

    2. South Park mall cop

      Move along sir

    3. Moose

      please tell me that Vols fan post is a joke. You don’t honestly think you can even come close to beating UK next year, do you? I’m going to assume it’s a joke, no one is that dumb.

  11. NineForNerlens

    Does anyone remember before the season started Matt Jones stating that he is 6’4 and he is taller than the 6’7 James Young. I know he’s leaning but James is still a couple inches taller than Matt

    1. SleptwithYoMama

      Your mama remembers last n

    2. NineForNerlens

  12. mothy

  14. blue baller

    matt really wanted to james to tell him all about his sexual encounters with his very deep voice.
