  1. Realme

    No thanks to anything Facebook.

    1. 4everUKblue

      Yep I don’t do anything facebook.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Hi, I thought not a creature was stirring, not even a troll. Even more showed up last night, and they had quite the food fight.

    3. 4everUKblue

      It’s becoming unbearable. I wish there was a troll block app.

    4. Realme

      Well, they will scurry back into the sewer drains if UK wins tonight.

    5. ClutchCargo

      The comments on literally any post now are about as bad as those on a public Facebook post.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Probably just one person; seems to have a problem with Brad and Tyler Herro. Also seems to be obsessed with trailer parks, inbreeding, and failure to finish high school…maybe just write an autobiography.

    7. cats646

      I think the trolls are a group of thirteen year old kids being douche bags.

    8. Booby Petrino

      I saw those comments last night, looks like a lot of them have been removed. I wasn’t stepping into that mess! The comment section on KSR has become a real train wreck lately.

    9. Realme

      I think they enjoy the attention they get from aggravating the rest of us. Should probably completely ignore them from now on.

    10. cats646

      Yea I got drawn into it last night. I probably was the reason they kept on talkin. I’ll take the blame on that one. Ha. I’m just gonna ignore them from now on though

    11. J-Dub421

      I’m torn. I sometimes try to ignore the trolls, then other times I engage with them if they say something particularly stupid.

    12. RealCatsFan

      Darn, I must have missed the troll fest. Can we just add the “idiot button” that I mentioned earlier?

    13. ClutchCargo

      My rule, which I break daily, is to just not even look at the comments anywhere but the show thread. It’s easier on the weekends because I can be certain that there is nothing but garbage in there.

    14. 4everUKblue

      When do they not say something particularly stupid? I vote yes to add the “idiot button”

    15. Booby Petrino

      work can get really slow at times in my office, so I partake out of boredom mostly. I’ll try to do better about ignoring them, though. Wait…can you give up arguing with trolls for Lent? lol

    16. J-Dub421

      Booby, maybe we should just adopt that old southern lady’s standby and tell them “Bless your little heart.” We all know what that really means. 🙂

    17. Booby Petrino

      I like it J-Dub. I’ll try to stick to that.

    18. J-Dub421


  2. secrick

    Ky is suppose to lose tonight ,so if we win it will be an upset. I think Auburn has the better team and if we lose in a close one there is no reason to start complaining about this team. Here’s hoping we pull the upset. GO CATS

    1. J-Dub421

      We’re at Auburn, and I think they’re ranked 10th, so it would definitely be an upset.

  3. Realme

    I liked the UK BBall Twitter’s response to Auburn’s plan for a white out tonight: “White goes well with blue”.

  4. 4everUKblue

    Just looking at the rankings, Oklahoma is ranked 23 with nine losses, several to unranked teams. That makes sense.

    1. Realme

      That’s fine. Leave us out of it and under the radar. Then when we finally get our stuff together, it will blow all the experts’ minds.

    2. J-Dub421

      Oklahoma is a one trick pony (Trae Young).

    3. runningunnin.454

      Oklahoma will be in the tournament…got to have Trae Young, even tho’ they were down four last night in the last minute, and he dribbled the ball off his foot out of bounds.

    4. 4everUKblue

      But Cal let him get away, he’s lost his mojo. Whatever.

    5. J-Dub421

      Other teams have figured out how to stop, or at least slow down Trae Young.

    6. J-Dub421

      Young is 0-9 from the three his last three games. He had 19 points last night, but 11 of them came at the free throw line. Young’s stats are now getting propped up by the refs.

    7. Laker Cat 18

      Oklahoma will get in because they won’t lose more than 10 or 11 games, not because of Young specifically. Kentucky on the other hand, could still lose up to 13 or 14 games before the end of the season. Ben Simmons couldn’t get in with 14 losses for LSU. I think OU is all but guaranteed, UK is not. I think it’s unfair to compare OU to UK.

  5. runningunnin.454

    Texas A&M lost to Missouri last night; of course, they’re not going to get up for Mizzou like they do for us.

    1. ClutchCargo

      Probably true about the mental letdown, but I tend to think Missouri is just better than TAM.

    2. RealCatsFan

      See my “shot their wad” comment from yesterday’s show thread. After all, it is Valentines Day. 😉

    3. 4everUKblue

      I actually lol’ed at that comment.

  6. 4everUKblue

    Mitchell Robinson was the WKU player Matt was talking about.

    1. J-Dub421

      Is he even playing?

    2. 4everUKblue

      No he left to prepare for the NBA

  7. runningunnin.454

    Um, “When Will I Be Loved” is actually an old Everly Brothers’ song.

    1. Realme

      I like that when a song is originally from one of his terrible country singers it’s “stolen” by another artist, but if they do someone else’s song it’s a cover.

    2. RealCatsFan

      Years ago I was driving with my then eleven year old nephew in the car when Queen’s “Under Pressure” came on the radio. When the familiar base riff started up, he announced “hey, they stole that from Vanilla Ice!” I nearly threw him from the moving car.

    3. J-Dub421

      Didn’t Bowie guest on that with Queen?

    4. 4everUKblue


  8. classof68

    Matt doesn’t even know who the Stonemans were. Some country music buff. The girl with the gap in her teeth on Hee Haw was Roni Stoneman.

  9. RealCatsFan

    I’m waiting for Hami to say that it’s going to be a great story. Then I might get excited for the post season. 🙂

    1. ClutchCargo

      Right! We haven’t even got a full blown “tweak” announcement from Cal, really. Just kind of hinted around about it.

  10. J-Dub421

    Hami is this year’s whipping boy. Last couple of years it was Briscoe, and before that it was Skal, and before that it was the Harrison twins.

    1. Realme

      Yep. I hate that about our fan base.

    2. secrick

      Hami is about to kick some ass tonight. Wait and see.

    3. J-Dub421

      There’s always that one guy who constantly gets dumped on by “fans” taking out their frustration.

    4. secrick

      I’ll bet you a dollar he gets at least 10 points and 10 rebounds tonight and if i lose i will pay you the next time i see you.

    5. J-Dub421

      Ha! I like Haami. If anything, I think he’s trying too hard sometimes. He just needs to relax and get out of his own head.

    6. Realme

      Many are predisposed to hate him for testing draft waters last Spring.

    7. J-Dub421

      There are “fans” who in one sentence say Diallo sucks and is terrible, then turn around and call him selfish for not playing last year, and act like we’d have won the title if he’d played. It makes no sense.

    8. 4everUKblue

      Then there are those who hate the one and dones but don’t want any of this year’s players to come back. Also makes no sense.

    9. J-Dub421

      Which is why I always say there is a portion of our fanbase that is miserable and delusional and cannot be pleased ever. It is impossible to make those people happy. They even complain when we win.

    10. Realme

      I still find myself defending the twins to this day. Add Archie to the list. Mental train wreck of a point guard, and lost our best player to injury, but no, the NIT appearance is all Archie’s fault.

    11. J-Dub421

      Archie always got a bad wrap. He was on a dysfunctional team, with not a lot of talent (especially after Noel went down). They would just hand him the ball with 10 seconds left on the shot clock and leave it entirely to Archie to try to make something happen.

  11. runningunnin.454

    Why would Chris Mack leave Xavier to jump into that mess in Louisville?

    1. J-Dub421


      Although, I wonder how much Louisville can legitimately afford to pay anyone now, after all the embezzlement.

    2. RealCatsFan

      If they do indeed get hit with a $15million fine, they won’t be able to afford a high school coach.

  12. RealCatsFan

    Can we get John Wall, Cuz, AD and KAT to start recruiting for us against the vampire? Dook is just a copycat program with a lot of money and no inventiveness of their own. So annoying.

    1. J-Dub421

      They all sing the praises of Coach Cal and UK all the time. Most of our guys do. How often do you see Cal at NBA games taking pictures with his former players? It seems pretty frequent. I never see K do that sort of thing. (Maybe he does and I just don’t see it.)

    2. ClutchCargo

      Imagine the duffel bags those guys could pack!

    3. RealCatsFan

      K has his personal devil do it for him. I am convinced that dook’s pitch that players will be “set for life” is a thinly veiled reference to paying players, and I am dead serious about that.

    4. J-Dub421

      We already know they (or boosters at least) pay players. See Thomas, Lance.

    5. RealCatsFan

      J-Dub, and the fact that it was swept under the rug proves that their cheating is sanctioned by the NCAA. How big of a kickback is Emmert getting from them?

    6. 4everUKblue

      Also Maggette admitted to taking payments, not directly from dUKe supposedly but no action was taken.

  13. Realme

    This song is so horrible, I’m shocked Matt doesn’t love it.

  14. secrick

    Pearl is probably going to make me mad tonight but you know the guy is good for the Sec.

    1. 4everUKblue

      He’s a good coach when he’s not in trouble.

  15. Realme

    I didn’t think Shaun White was going to beat the other guy. That was so good.

  16. Realme

    Listening to Matt describe ice dancing is Ryan level creeping me out.
