    Does Matt sound like a cyborg to everyone else?

    1. RealCatsFan

      He has been abducted by aliens. Watch out for that probe!

    2. Realme

      They will absolutely throw him back when he won’t stop telling them how to do their job.

    3. cats646


    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      lol @ Realme! There was an episode of The Simpsons where aliens kidnapped the baby and brought her back when they couldn’t handle her.

    5. J-Dub421

      He got kidnaped by pod-people.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Invasion of the Body Snatchers, two good cult movies.

    7. J-Dub421

      If we take one of our cats to the vet, when we bring it home the other two hiss and act like we brought home a pod-kitty. It’s weird.

    8. Realme

      Ours just smell each other and look confused.

    9. RealCatsFan

      J-Dub, they are just pissed that the other kitty came back. They were hoping that meant more food for them. 😉

  2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Beat the Racers! I usually pull for all Kentucky teams when they aren’t playing UK, or my alma mater which plays several KY teams in the NAIA.

  3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Wasn’t Sacha supposedly thinking about playing for UNCheat? I can’t imagine their fans would be much different. Maybe that’s why he didn’t go there.

    1. Realme

      I’m a little skeptical that our fans were that excited to see him in public. I think it was criticism that bothered him more, but he didn’t want to make us look bad. We’re fine, good for him if he can be happier there, and good for us that we don’t have to hate him for going to the school with no classes.

    2. J-Dub421

      UNC fans are way more low key than UK fans, but there would have been some of the “fish bowl” life but it wouldn’t have been as intense.

    3. RealCatsFan

      The year before he came to UK he was at a game that I attended, and he stood down there on the court after the game and signed autographs for probably 150 people. I even got my picture taken with him. Seemed like a nice kid, and he seemed to be basking in the glow of BBN at the time. But I can see where all that attention could wear thin after a while, especially if you start to struggle in games.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I do wish him luck though as long as they don’t play us. I’ll be more than happy if I see him dunking all over the cheaters.

    5. J-Dub421

      The negative nellies tend to turn on our players as soon as they have a bad game, or if they aren’t world-beaters right out of the gate. It happened to SKJ a little (though not as badly as some other players have gotten it, see: Harrison twins, Briscoe, Skal) and some guys handle the negativity and criticism better than others. I feel bad that a few schmucks ruin the experience for some players.

  4. J-Dub421

    Will Harris can suck it. We weren’t ranked and knocked off the #25 team on the road and ended a 31 year losing streak. Don’t rain on my parade, jerk.

    1. Realme

      Yeah. His premise that we all think we’re now championship bound was dumb to start with, so he was arguing with a side that didn’t exist.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Let them keep dissing us…I like it; it fires up the team.

    3. ClutchCargo

      I feel bad bashing a guy who shares a name with my builder, who is a good dude and bleeds blue. lol But I agree with this.

    4. J-Dub421

      We’re just happy to have finally beaten Florida, and on the road no less. Just let us enjoy it for a week for crap sakes; it was 31 years coming.

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      J-Dub FTW! UF was only like 4-8 last year, yet they’re still ranked 25th, all anyone can talk about is the streak, and we’re not supposed to be happy?

      Plus, SC gets love every year and we beat their pants off every year (well, it’s close sometimes and they did lost Deebo in our game last year I think). Muschamp. Pffftttt!!!!!!! What a joke of a HC.

      Sorry, I know I’ve posted that 2nd paragraph 100 times.

  5. secrick

    Think that’s just sour grapes coming from Sacha or is Ky fans that bad.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Some are that bad; I’m sure you see some of the comments on KSR.

    2. ClutchCargo

      I don’t think it matters. It wasn’t a good fit, so he moved on, as he probably should have.

    3. J-Dub421

      I figure that about 10% (give or take) of every fanbase is made up of jerks. Because our fanbase is so huge, we have a larger portion of jerks.

  6. runningunnin.454

    Have to get this guy to every game.

  7. Realme

    This guy Beatty is awesome. Living the dream.

    1. runningunnin.454

      And he is a former UK athlete; that is awesome.

  8. ClutchCargo

    I wish he was a regular part of the show. Really like hearing him talk.

  9. runningunnin.454

    I was shocked yesterday to learn that the guy that murdered the UK football player only served 6 years.
    Really? Cold blooded sniper with a deer rifle? What has our justice system become?

    1. RealCatsFan

      His daddy is rich and well connected. Got him a good lawyer and used his political connections to get him off easy. Karma came calling for him later with the DUI accident.

    2. Realme

      People do more time for things that are barely crimes. I’m furious because I saw that one of Elizabeth Smart’s kidnappers is getting out.

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      You beat me to it Realme:

      Spoiler alert (I may as well include the text because it’s short…and totally egregious):

      “The Utah woman who was kidnapped and sexually abused as a 14-year-old says she is shocked that one of her captors is set to be released from jail. Elizabeth Smart today urged the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole to reconsider releasing Wanda Barzee next week. Barzee was sentenced in 2010 to 15 years in prison for helping abduct Smart from her Salt Lake City bedroom and then standing by and watching as her husband, Brian Mitchell, raped her daily. The parole board announced this week that the 72-year-old Barzee will be released on Wednesday under terms that include supervision.”

    4. CATandMONKEY

      This make me physically ill.

    5. Realme


    6. J-Dub421

      Brock Turner got caught in the act of raping a girl by 2 witnesses and only served 3 months.

    7. Realme

      Hate that guy too! Our system hopefully gets it right a lot, but fails hard on a lot of levels.

  10. RealCatsFan

    I think the deer were actually scared off by the sound of Matt’s nose whistle blasting over the radio. 😀

    1. CATandMONKEY

      …All the way from Connecticut.

    2. ClutchCargo

      Maybe it’s the nose whistle, like those deer whistles people mount on their car bumpers.

    3. RealCatsFan

      Can someone make a car hood ornament that is shaped like Matt’s head with a nose whistle that I can mount on the front of my car? The deer are pretty thick out in the boonies where I live! 😀

  11. CATandMONKEY

    We CAN beat Misssshisshippi State!

    1. runningunnin.454

      Definitely, just need to limit Nick Fitzgerald’s running game.

    2. CATandMONKEY

      Barring injuries to the front line and linebackers,(God Forbid) we can do it. If our backfield continues to excel, that may force more runs and we should be able to scheme effectively.

      To be fair, I have no idea what I am talking about.

    3. ClutchCargo

      I thought it was spelled Missippi, based on how a lot of people say it when they try to talk too fast.

    4. RealCatsFan

      Clutch, I think this guy can help you with the proper pronunciation. 🙂

    5. J-Dub421

      It’s Messessebi according to helmet guy.

    6. CATandMONKEY

      Helmet Guy. Pleasantly yet totally polluted.

      One of the True KSR classic videos. Glad I never saw a camera when in the shape he was.

  12. CATandMONKEY

    This is a surprisingly great call.
    Kudos to Darryl for Manning up.

  13. Realme

    We’re not going to win by 40. Stoops doesn’t run up a score (except maybe if the other team / coaching staff are jerks).

    1. runningunnin.454

      Exactly, we’re not Tennessee rolling up 59-3 over little ETSU.

    2. ClutchCargo

      Not that I want to see Murray get embarrassed, but it would be nice if the “guarantee game” teams felt like that’s what they had coming when they play at Kroger Field. To me, it’s a sign that the team is focused on playing their game, and doesn’t play down to the competition.

    3. ClutchCargo

      ^ Part of that is putting in the 3rd string when you’re up big, but still running your offense and defense the best you can.
