  1. Realme

    Crean is going to be so amped to play UK again. This will be a put down the Twitter and just watch the game night.

    1. runningunnin.454

      I started to have some respect for Crean as an analyst on TV…he was pretty good at that. As a coach, he is decent; but generally his teams are weak defensively.

    2. ClutchCargo

      Crean and Pearl were good analysts. I miss them being on there. Also, Steve Lavin was really good.

    3. runningunnin.454

      Lavin was good; Pearl was annoying.

  2. Realme

    Whew, Matt is pleasant already today.

  3. RealCatsFan

    Is that Crean’s new look? Is he trying to not look like Dwight from The Office? (So UGA switched from having George Costanza as their coach to Dwight from The Office.)

  4. RealCatsFan

    Hey Hey, any time dook loses it’s a glorious day!


    1. J-Dub421

      My dad sent me a text to tell me last night, and I had a good laugh. 🙂

    2. RealCatsFan

      J-Dub, was it maniacal laughter like mine? 😀

    3. J-Dub421


  5. RealCatsFan

    Have you all seen the Adam Gase flying taco meme with his crazy eyes? Hilarious! What was up with those eyes – was he channeling Marty Feldman?

    1. runningunnin.454

      That’s funny. If you watch Frank Martin, he does the same thing….scary.

    2. ClutchCargo

      Hahaha! What the hell is wrong with that guy??

    3. Realme

      Ha ha ha! It was already funny, but with the taco it’s hilarious.

    4. J-Dub421

      Except Frank Martin shoots fire from his eyes.

    5. Realme

      We need a Martin / Gase staring contest.

    6. ClutchCargo

      I think Frank Martin actually does shoot fire from his eyes, but he tries to keep it in check during games.

    7. runningunnin.454

      I always watched the Kansas State games…just to watch Martin on the sidelines.

    8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Ocasio-Cortez also has crazy eyes.

      Martin doesn’t have crazy eyes…he has a psycho face altogether when he’s raging…which is most of the time on the sideline (Cal rages constantly too, to be fair…he just doesn’t have near the face or eyes some of these folks have).

      Well, that was my lone comment today. Too busy with the Penske file to listen/comment (okay, that joke is stale…sorry).

    9. ClutchCargo

      Cal doesn’t have the crazy eyes, but it’s awesome how you can read his lips a mile away.

    10. RealCatsFan

      I would pay extra for a dedicated mic feed from Cal so I could hear everything he is yelling. OF course, for me, it would be interesting to hear what any of the coaches are saying, since I am involved with coaching too (albeit at a completely different level in a different sport.)

  6. ClutchCargo

    Totally agree that the sad dook students are one of the best parts of a dook home loss!

    1. Iamheasyouarehe

      Anytime Duke looses I celebrate and on their home court doubles the pleasure for me.

  7. ClutchCargo

    Matt, it’s not a frivolous lawsuit when the neighbor attacked the guy and got arrested.

    1. Realme

      Matt’s (slanted) position is that they had a fight. Not that one guy was blindsided by another and had to be hospitalized.

    2. runningunnin.454

      That trial will be SRO…get there early.

    3. michaelb

      That’s exactly why matt completely made that news up . It’s obvious now . He usually screams “I’m not mad about it ” lol . He didn’t think people could fact check him down the line . That sours my opinion about him / ksr . Someone should start doing the same thing radio tv etc . Go for it clutch cargo

  8. ClutchCargo

    So defensive about the Eddie Gran/UGA thing. Weird.

    1. Realme


    2. J-Dub421

      Yes, but why does the obsessed Georgia dude keep calling to try to tell Matt he’s wrong? That’s at least the second time the guy has called.

    3. ClutchCargo

      Well, he’s an obsessed Georgia fan just doing what obsessed fans do. If Matt is so secure in his belief that his source is correct, there no need for him to get all butthurt about it. I think the fan calls in just to get him riled up, honestly.

    4. Realme

      Yeah, that’s weird too Jdub.

    5. runningunnin.454

      The guy’s just still upset Kirby Smart gave away the SEC championship.

    6. J-Dub421

      I can’t imagine having so little to do with my time that I would call opposing fans radio shows to try to start crap. How lame. Find a better hobby dude.

  9. secrick

    What ever happen to the Georgia coach that one the Sec trnt. back when the tornado hit. Can’t think of his name.

    1. ClutchCargo

      I think Dennis Felton was still there at the time. No idea what he is up to now. I think I disliked him more than any other coach of a just ok team ever.

    2. michaelb

      I hated Patrick swansy , he hit that lucky shot that eventually beat us . Like 3 bulldogs had career highs vs us that game

    3. runningunnin.454

      Dennis Felton? I think he’s at Cleveland State.

    4. runningunnin.454

      He also coached at Western Ky.

    5. RealCatsFan

      He looked even more like the devil than Capel does. 🙂

  10. Iamheasyouarehe

    Are the Bahamas really considered overseas?

  11. RealCatsFan

    Maybe the biggest laugh I got this morning was hearing about Clemson’s visit to the White House for the smorgasbord of fast food. The only thing that could make that better would be for someone to make it look like Trump was saying grace before they started eating along the lines of Will Ferrell in “Talladega Nights”:

    “Dear Lord Baby Jesus, or as our brothers to the south call you, Jesús, we thank you so much for this bountiful harvest of Domino’s, KFC, and the always delicious Taco Bell…”

    1. J-Dub421

      “I’m on fire!!! Help me Oprah Winfrey!! Help me Tom Cruise!!!”

  12. RealCatsFan

    Since Cal seems to be struggling on the recruiting trail, and Pelfrey is deemed to be a good recruiter at ‘Bama, it would be intriguing for me to see him come home to UK as our head recruiter.

  13. Iamheasyouarehe

    How about Mark Pope as a former Wildcat as a coach?

  14. Iamheasyouarehe

    Leonard Hamilton is 70, too old.

    1. RealCatsFan

      Well, the vampire in Durham is about that old and it isn’t slowing him down any. 🙂

    2. Iamheasyouarehe

      True but I think he’s getting his blood swapped out ala Keith Richards.

    3. J-Dub421

      I think Keith Richards just went ahead and embalmed himself while still alive. Or maybe I should say he pickled himself?

    4. RealCatsFan

      Keith goes in for an annual fluid and filter change – blood transfusion and a liver transplant. Count K is immortal as long as he stays out of direct sunlight and avoids pointy wooden objects.

    5. Iamheasyouarehe

      Don’t forget garlic and crosses.

  15. RealCatsFan

    Matt mentions John Prine – I have always liked his music. I was not aware of the battle he had with squamous cell cancer until recently. Prine nearly lost his ability to sing and speak, and it changed his vocal style, but he is still going. A friend of mine had to deal with that, and it nearly killed him. Started as a small bump under his tongue, and not long after that he had a huge bulging tumor the size of a lemon on his neck. Had to have a feeding tube put in and wore a Clive Barker looking mask for his radiation treatments, which baked him from the inside out. But he beat it! Toughest dude I know.

  16. runningunnin.454

    Hate it when I see someone that reminds me of somebody, and I can’t think of whom it is.
    I watched a rerun of the old Route 66 TV show Sunday; and there were two guys, and it bugged me.
    Turned out they were actually the guys…James Caan and Martin Sheen when they couldn’t have been over 20 yrs old.

    1. RealCatsFan

      When I was out at a bar one night I was next to a guy who looked just like a guy I was aquainted with from HS. Couldn’t remember his name, but I started a friendly conversation with him since he seemed to recognize me as well. Two minutes into the conversation both of us realized that we had no idea who the other one was and had never met each other. We had a good laugh and a clink of our beer glasses.

  17. RealCatsFan

    Matt has a point – if the WH kitchen is shut down, where is Trump’s food coming from? Seems like he would have been bellyaching about it before now. Hell, what he spent on 300 burger’s, etc., is probably less than he spends on an average day on the golf course.

    1. Realme

      He probably has his own chef anyways.

    2. J-Dub421

      He eats fast food constantly, so he probably just gets McDonald’s same as usual.

    3. Realme

      I was puzzled why he thought offering them cold fast food burgers was a good idea, but if that’s what he likes to eat I guess he thought it was a nice thing to do.

    4. RealCatsFan

      Maybe he just thought that college students would be used to cold fast food.

  18. michaelb

    The food , I’m not gonna lie , looked delicious . I’d love a gratuitous amount of mcds right now
