    Don’t forget S. Illinois; have to regroup, refocus, and move on.
    Beat Salukis and beat Vols!

    1. Realme

      Yes we need 2 wins this weekend to fend off negativity and sadness.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Need a repeat of ’74-’75 season. Indiana beat us by 24 in December, and we beat them in the March ’75 NCAA Mideast Regional Final, ended their undefeated season, and sent them home.
      And, Duke could be undefeated the next time we see them.

    3. Iamheasyouarehe

      Seems even winning both games will not be enough for some trolls.

    4. ClutchCargo

      Great point, rg. Old IU fans still hate us for supposedly breaking Scott May’s arm in that tournament game. Getting over stuff isn’t in the IU fanbase’s DNA.

    5. runningunnin.454

      Indiana lost one game in two years, and it was to UK.

    6. ClutchCargo

      I can’t necessarily blame them for being mad about that. We were their Wisconsin in ’75.

  2. Realme

    My coworkers are at it again y’all. Blue hair has actually been positive about the Duke loss, Eeyore said the same nonsense he always says, and Bobby Knight is thankfully no longer in Kentucky. But there’s a new character on the scene. Before the game they were proclaiming a championship was a done deal, after, that it’s time for Cal to leave. Sigh.

    1. CATandMONKEY

      Your workplace sounds to be a reflection of the hyperbolic fear often seen in these threads. . . Usually posted by folks who have previously never posted.

      Can only wish you luck and peace for your daily ordeal.
      Got a feeling this team could quiet them by February.

    2. Realme

      It’s much lest aggravating since the biggest Cal hater moved away.

    3. J-Dub421

      I always ask the Cal haters to name a coach (that we could actually get) who’s better than Cal. They never can. Never.

    4. Realme

      Ha ha BK named Bill Self and the said he had 4, no wait 3, championships. WRONG!

    5. J-Dub421

      Self has 2 titles and Kansas often loses early in the tournament to teams they have no business losing to.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Self has to go; I was in the Twilight Zone Tuesday night, having to root for Michigan State…Ugh.

    7. Realme

      He wasn’t one to bring facts.

    8. J-Dub421

      Well, this is KSR so facts are optional…

  3. Realme

    I don’t know how much blue we’ll get into Neyland, but we better take over the stadium formerly known as Papa John’s in a few weeks.

    1. runningunnin.454

      UL may not have a team by then; something like 20 football players requesting transfer…wow.

    2. Iamheasyouarehe
    3. Realme

      Surprised they don’t go ahead and fire Bobby to stop the bleeding.

    4. ClutchCargo

      There’$ lot$ of rea$on$ they haven’t $ent him packing just yet.

    5. J-Dub421

      U of L has paid a lot of money in contract buy-outs and lawsuits lately, and their big donors have been bailing on them. U of L is probably a bit strapped for cash at the moment and Petrino has a $13 million buy-out.


    The offer does not state a date for payment- if it were after the season and the kid had then declared, would it be permissible?

    If the money came prior to-or during the college season;that would be a different story.

    1. Realme

      That’s what I wondered about the Bam situation, there were conflicting reports on the timing.

      I’m not worried. The programs with coach involvement should be afraid. Our unlikely worst case scenario would be vacating games, but no final fours or anything important, and I don’t think even that is 10% likely.

  5. runningunnin.454

    Master coin flippers? How much does that pay?

  6. Realme

    I don’t agree about Grippos. They taste weird.

    1. J-Dub421

      I don’t think I’ve ever had them.

    2. Realme

      I think I had plain, not bbq. Can’t even describe what they tasted like. Just odd.

    3. Iamheasyouarehe

      The Grippo’s Horseradish and Cheddar are really good, got a little kick to them. Sounds nasty I know but they’re pretty good.

  7. Realme

    I’m sorry, but predicting the Barr / McGrath numbers would change as results came in from outside Lexington was not an act of political genius.

  8. runningunnin.454

    Watched Cincinnati vs Ohio State last night; the announcers said UK looked like a JV team Tue night.
    How long will we have to hear about this, ya think?

    1. Realme

      At least Duke won’t put it on popcorn boxes years later. Hopefully.

    2. J-Dub421

      Yet we could totally beat OSU or Cincy.

    3. ClutchCargo

      You can bet your asses we will be seeing highlights from this game all season long, though. ESPN is going to be insufferable.

    4. RealCatsFan

      The thing I am hoping for now is

      A. That our kids didn’t get their confidence crushed to the point where it will affect them the rest of the season.

      B. That Dook will start getting the big head from a possible 40-0 season, buy into the hype, and lose an early round game in the NCAA Tournament to a Wisconsin-like team.

      C. That after the season wraps up, it comes out that Dooks bag man dropped a $250K duffel bag on Zion’s front porch and their program goes down in flames.

      D. UK catches fire at the end of the season and goes on a run to #9!

    5. J-Dub421

      I’ll take all of those RCF. Cal will help our team bounce back, so I don’t worry too much about that.

    6. Stuck on Blue

      RCF, I have a theory…Zion was going to Kansas for some $$$$$…something happened, & he went to pUKE…I think it is possible that he knew if he went to pUKe, all investigations would dry up. Pure speculation on my part, of course.

    7. runningunnin.454

      Yep, I remember the picture of Zion at his official visit to Duke, and he looked miserable. There was G. Allen dancing on the floor like the biggest nerd in the world.
      Yep, Sumpin happened.

  9. runningunnin.454

    We have two games coming up; why are we talking about potato chips and Mr Pibb?

    1. ClutchCargo

      Even if it was the middle of summer and no games this week, why ever talk about Mr. Pibb? Blech!!!

    2. J-Dub421

      Dr. Pepper all the way!! I don’t need a Mr.

  10. runningunnin.454

    Used to watch Southern Illinois play Ky Wesleyan in Owensboro. They had Walt (Clyde) Frazier, and he was one silky smooth player.

  11. RealCatsFan

    Not sports related, but the past two weeks have been a blur. Buried my dad yesterday. I was amazed at how many people came to his visitation and wake. It is a testament to how you lived your life when they have to open the auxiliary parking lot at the funeral home.

    Now this morning, I wake up to the news of yet another shooting. They are becoming as routine as fender benders on the interstate. Something is wrong with our nation. Too much hate.

    1. Realme

      Your mom handling things okay?

    2. J-Dub421

      The shootings will continue. This is America now. Get used to it.

    3. RealCatsFan

      Mom is doing remarkably well. Tired and overwhelmed, and a little confused at times, but doing OK. We will make sure she is taken care of. That’s what family does.

    4. RealCatsFan

      My daughter had me sit sown with her the other night and watch “The Purge – Election Year”. Her fear is that America is going to become like that someday. Hope she’s wrong.

    5. J-Dub421

      Glad your mom is doing as well as can be expected.

    6. Stuck on Blue

      Prayers to you and your family RCF, losing someone you love, even if expected is hard.

  12. runningunnin.454

    Georgia ran on us because our LB’s were playing with one hand. I’ll take a bowl game with Ohio State, Penn State, or West Virginia; don’t want UCF, that’s a no win situation.

  13. Realme

    “Duke’s cool.” Blaaaaarrrghhhh, bleeeech, wretch, vomit, gag.

    1. J-Dub421

      No, Duke is not cool.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Industrial strength projectile vomiting.

    3. RealCatsFan

      They have a friggin’ vampire as their coach. DEFINITELY NOT COOL!

  14. J-Dub421

    What is this dude on about?

  15. J-Dub421

    I read an article on Dr. Death. The dude was such a horrible doctor that he literally went to jail because he killed multiple patients, and mained many others. They found him criminally negligent. It was the first ever case of its kind.

    1. J-Dub421

      *maimed, not mained. Sigh.

    2. RealCatsFan

      At the same time, when my dad was laying there for 36 hours with the death rattle going on, it would have been nice for him to just have a way to slip away quietly and quickly instead of having it drag on like that. I know that he was almost certainly unaware of what was going on at the time and in no pain, but at the very least it was disconcerting and upsetting for my mom and the rest of my family. I can certainly see why assisted suicide would be attractive to those who have terminal illnesses and can see the end approaching quickly.
