    Hello Sports Fans, it is nasty in West Ky….freezing rain, sleet, turning to snow later.
    Brace yourself, Eastern Ky and be careful.

  2. ClutchCargo

    I’m bracing myself by working from home today, just because I can. I have no interest in getting hung up in traffic today with all the bread and milk buyers.

    1. J-Dub421

      I went to Kroger last night because I needed a few things for my trip. It was a madhouse. I forgot it was going to be like that due to the impending storm.

    2. RealCatsFan

      I am well stocked with beer and frozen pizza. Let it snow!

    3. runningunnin.454

      I remember left over pizza was the cornerstone of every college students’ nutritious breakfast.

  3. Stuck on Blue

    This is why I love living in Florida during the winter. I HATE cold weather.

    1. ClutchCargo

      I love winter weather, I just prefer to not share the roads with knuckleheads if it can be avoided.

    2. Stuck on Blue

      Believe me, there are plenty of knuckle heads here, snow or no snow. I often wonder how some people get their driver’s license’s.

    3. Realme

      I often use Lextran, just so that I can relax and let someone else deal with the knuckleheads.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Warm and hmid in my neck of the woods the last couple days. Warm and rain this morning, with clearing this afternoon and temp dropping to 27 tonight.

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door


    6. J-Dub421

      At least you all can spell knuckleheads correctly.

    7. Realme

      I thought about leaving off the K just for you.

    8. J-Dub421

      Lol RealMe, that would just be mean. 🙂

  4. secrick

    At work just rain so far. Big game at Vandy Tomm.

  5. Realme

    I thought LT was doing a decent job, and I liked him, but I guess Stoops has good reasons.

  6. runningunnin.454

    I’m with Drew; you don’t fraternize with the enemy like Thomas did…no tears here.

    1. Realme

      I don’t like what he did either, it just didn’t make me want to see him fired.

    2. ClutchCargo

      If the way he acted created a problem in the locker room, and I suspect it did, he needed to go. UofL fans weren’t too broken up about him leaving there, either. Don’t take that to mean I think their opinions are valid. Ha!

    3. Realme

      You may be right, Clutch. I was expecting to see his players complain on Twitter, but they didn’t, as far as I saw.

    4. J-Dub421

      I heard it was more to do with lack of recruiting, as opposed to just job performance.

  7. runningunnin.454

    I loved that Mr. Barnhart basically called that official, Coyote or whatever, a liar. I could not have been as civil; but, that’s the nature of his job.
    Incompetent egomaniacal bum would have been included in my missive.

    1. ClutchCargo

      Add “he lowdown, he dirty, he a snitch,” and it would be nearly complete.

    2. J-Dub421

      Barnhart basically said that stuff, just in a polite/professional manner. Kind of like when us southern ladies say, “Bless your little heart…”

  8. 4everUKblue

    The Kardashians are all stars too. We are sucked into watching people with no shame make @sses of themselves and Kim K has made a big @ss of herself….literally.

    1. RealCatsFan

      I couldn’t ever give two chits about the Kardashians. Never understood the infatuation some in society have with them.

    2. 4everUKblue

      I totally agree!

    3. 4everUKblue

      I only brought that up because of Matt saying Lavar Ball is a star which I also don’t understand the infatuation with.

    4. ClutchCargo

      I get what you’re saying, but we have a choice whether to be sucked into it or not. I choose to ignore it as much as possible. No reality TV for me.

    5. 4everUKblue

      I watch very little TV and absolutely NO reality TV.

    6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I used to dig Dog the Bounty Hunter, and I like Pawn Stars and American Pickers, but for the most part, yeah, (not really) reality TV is trash.

    7. RealCatsFan

      I like to watch gearhead shows like Graveyard Cars, but the “plots” that they try to weave into the shows get annoying. Just talk about the subject, and forget the cute stuff. If you want a plot, write a fictional show with real actors.

    8. J-Dub421

      I usually only watch cooking reality shows like Top Chef and Chopped, etc. Although I also love Face Off, where they do movie make-up and creatures, etc.

    9. Realme

      I like the competition ones, Top Chef, Project Runway, etc., but I fast forward through the obnoxious bickering the producers love to highlight.

  9. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    In meetings all morning. Keep me posted. Give me a play by play! 😄


    1. Realme

      The show’s about as lively as the show thread today. You haven’t missed anything yet, unless you’re into lame caller stories.

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I hear ya!

  10. secrick

    It’s about time for some one to call in or post Tomm. is a must win.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Definitely be embarrassing to lose to a 6-10 team.

    2. secrick

      I think the spread will surprise you.

  11. KYcats11

    Couldn’t go in today because of the “possibilty” for some really bad conditions. Decided I’d try out this show, and show thread stuff.

    1. Realme

      Kind of a slow day, but welcome.

    2. J-Dub421


    3. RealCatsFan

      Yeah, we need some new blood on the show thread. Have at it! 🙂

  12. J-Dub421

    Please shout this to the rooftops Matt!!! I am so sick of the constant negativity from miserable people. Do not tweet players!!! You are the idiots hurting our recruiting!! I keep seeing people saying Cal is slipping in recruiting. He’s not. The idiots in our fan base are ruining it for the rest of us.

    1. Realme

      Agree. Those people are the worst, and I think the players should re-tweet them all, to shame them. I’m sure there’s some moron right now planning to tweet about JV for exposing the first idiot though, because of what Matt just said.

    2. RealCatsFan

      Trouble is, Matt can shout it from the rooftops with a megaphone, but the dumbasses who need to hear it have peanut butter in their ears.

    3. runningunnin.454

      What was that about a tweet…missed that?

    4. Realme

      Matt said UK is telling him negative social media fans are hurting recruiting, and pointed out the guy that recently got retweeted by Jared Vanderbilt when he said “F him until he plays”.

    5. Stuck on Blue

      Realme, I totally agree, call these jerks out. Too many keyboard warriors out there.

    6. runningunnin.454


    7. 4everUKblue


  13. RealCatsFan

    I know some people would think that the players would be smart enough to take the comments and reactions of some of the fans with a grain of salt when being recruited, but keep in mind that these are teenagers, so they may be more easily influenced by stuff like this. In any case, an adult directly tweeting or otherwise contacting a teenage kid that he does not know personally is crossing the line, IMO. I realize that a lot of this crap may be coming from other college-age kids, maybe even fans of other schools. Still doesn’t make it right.

    1. J-Dub421

      Unfortunately a fair chunk of it comes from our fans. There are some people who think it’s reasonable to expect us to go 40-0 and win a title every single year. Anything less and we suck and Cal can’t coach. Even if we did manage to accomplish such a feat, and they would still find reasons to complain. Some people are miserable and love to spread their misery.

    2. Stuck on Blue

      Social media has some good things, but it seem’s to me that for the most part, it’s just a bunch of self-important people who, because they now have this platform, must let everyone know what they think about every single subject under the sun (because they’re SO important). Twitter is a cesspool filled twits.

  14. RealCatsFan

    What about the teacher who was arrested at a school board meeting for complaining about the superintendent getting a $30k/year raise while teachers and support people have not had one for years. She did not create a scene, just calmly stated her position. They proceeded to throw her out of the room, pushed her to the floor, cuffed her and put her in jail. Pathetic! I hope that superintendent ends up delivering pizzas.

    1. Realme

      The cops who do something like that probably have Rooferee and Coyote level authoritarian egos.

    2. J-Dub421

      The teachers in that district hadn’t received a raise in over a decade.

  15. J-Dub421

    Wow, just look at what this jerk wrote. What a terrible person.

    They can eat a dick honestly haha it’s pretty hypocritical seeing as my opinion of Vanderbilt is the same as @KySportsRadio was 2 weeks ago, but naturally KSR will now suck him off with the talks of him playing, I’ll take the credit for getting Vanderbilt to play tho.

    1. Realme

      Usually someone this awful gets embarrassed and deletes their tweet, and sometimes even their account. This creep is clearly enjoying the attention. Gross.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Gutter language and vulgarity are indications of a minuscule brain.

    3. Stuck on Blue

      I wish some our reasonable fans on twitter would blast him so hard his account shuts down.

    4. KYcats11

      Wow, what a jerk. Our fans can be the best, but can also be the absolute worst.

    5. ClutchCargo

      The bad thing about having a huge fanbase is that the small percentage of morons ends up being still a large number.

    6. BluKudzu

      It is amazing to me that anyone believes coarseness, and vulgarity is an adequate substitute for either wit or masculinity. As often is the case, your vocabulary defines you. This is why immature, 12 year old children, screaming for attention, should not be given free reign, with a hand held device.
