    KC probably called up Kroger to see they could give him a coupon for House. Cheapskates.

    1. ClutchCargo

      Wonder how many Kroger fuel points KC got for paying that $150k?

    2. StillBP

      lol better hurry, they expire at the end of next month!

    3. RealCatsFan

      I’m a little bummed that we are losing him. But not as bummed as I was yesterday after hearing that we lost a top 5 recruit to Dwight Schrute. Still can’t believe that crap – the Wiseman/Hardaway connection was somewhat understandable – this one just baffles me.

    4. StillBP

      Hate to see him go but don’t blame him. I’d be insulted if I were him after they had to spend days deciding whether or not he was worth $150,000 buyout with all the money they have in KC. But that’s no reason to pass on a great opportunity.

    5. J-Dub421

      I am pissed that KC didn’t want to pay House’s buyout, then went on a smear campaign against UK saying we wouldn’t release him to try to pressure us and make us look bad. Then finally decided to just pay the buyout, because I’m pretty sure that’s what happened. Eff Kansas City.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Ob-la-di Ob-la-da…life goes on.

    7. StillBP

      Agree, J-Dub. Sounds like they wanted to bully Mitch and Mitch wasn’t having it! No backing down.

    8. ClutchCargo

      Losing House was bound to happen eventually, and that kid was never ours anyway. I’m more anxious about how the football staff fills out after White presumably steps up to DC.

  2. Realme

    Weird spin to now act like House would have been the “unhappy person on the boat” if he’d stayed. UK couldn’t force him to stay here, they could just enforce the buyout which was a reasonable position, not stopping him from leaving. He was more likely torn between staying and going and the Chiefs deciding to pay was the tipping point.

  3. runningunnin.454

    Watched Kansa$$ vs TCU last night; never saw TCU’s home court before…thought I was going blind.
    Never saw a white basketball court before.

    1. ukbradstith

      Yeah, I hadn’t seen it before either. It was awesome, wish more teams would use custom courts like that.

    2. RealCatsFan

      I always kind of wished that UK would use the blue turf on our football field like Boise St does. Would be fitting since we are after all “The Bluegrass State”. πŸ˜‰

    3. StillBP

      RCF we would do checkerboard before all blue πŸ™‚ fans would lose their minds!

    4. ClutchCargo

      That court makes my eyes hurt to watch it on TV. Kind of like the contrast is turned way up on one of those old tube TV’s.

    5. J-Dub421

      I thought Kansas was going to choke and lose, but they pulled the win out. UNC went down to Virginia.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Speaking of Kansa$$, on the Wiki “Winningest College Basketball Programs” it looks like the Jaybirds entire basketball history has been, umm…vacated.

    7. Realme


    8. Iamheasyouarehe

      Who would do such a dastardly deed?

    9. runningunnin.454

      Not me. Not me.

    10. RealCatsFan

      HaHa, if you follow the link for most vacated wins, University-6 is at the top of the list. πŸ˜€

    11. Iamheasyouarehe

      Dirty deeds down dirt cheap…

  4. Realme

    I still find myself more annoyed with KSR and the other media when a back and forth like this happens than I do the individual waffling. They could report possibilities without acting like they’re a huge done deal. You know how we would have known for sure that he was staying or leaving? When the University officially announces it.

    1. ClutchCargo

      Agree. Being first to throw something out there is not the same thing as good journalism. Not that I expect a blog to meet that standard, but still.

  5. StillBP

    So do we wish for a giant sinkhole to swallow Yum tonight, or do we hope Duke loses? If they lose,they’ll just go from 2 to 3 lol But I don’t think they’re gonna lose.

    1. Realme

      Lose lose. I guess I’ll just pretend it’s not happening.

    2. StillBP

      I doubt I stay up for that one. Y’all know I’m not a “late” night person on weekdays!

    3. runningunnin.454

      I would have to laugh if UL were to beat Dook…ESPN would implode.

    4. Realme

      So if we beat Louisville, and they beat Duke, does that cancel out when Duke beat us?

    5. RealCatsFan

      I don’t know Realme, but that giant sinkhole better be ready. Hey, it has rained a lot over the past few days…

    6. RealCatsFan

      In a way I want Louisville to beat dook because I actually dislike dook much more. But if that happens, we will have to listen to all the crowing by the University 6 fans, and that will be hard to take. So let’s just say if UL loses, then I want it to be more than 34 points. πŸ˜‰

    7. runningunnin.454

      Saw Dook had another “hit everything they threw up there” game against Virginia…can’t be beaten when they do that.

    8. ClutchCargo

      Most people probably don’t realize that there is a ginormous tunnel under the riverfront in Louisville to filter the river water. So the sinkhole thing might not be out of the realm of possibillity. But I will definitely be pulling for Duke to lose. Notice how I worded that. ;).

    9. J-Dub421

      And my innocuous comments get moderated again.

    10. RealCatsFan

      It’s one of those deals where I wish they could both lose. Clutch, maybe the sinkhole will open up and they will all get to take a scenic trip down the river. πŸ™‚

    11. RealCatsFan

      HaHa, J-Dub just seems to have a talent to tango with the modbot. πŸ™‚

    12. J-Dub421

      I really just want to know what the modbot algorithm is.

    13. RealCatsFan

      Breaking news! Exclusive photo of the modbot algorithm:

    14. ClutchCargo

      I wonder if the trolls ever get moderated?

  6. runningunnin.454

    LOL, they WERE whispering…thought I was going deaf, too.

    1. RealCatsFan

      He can whisper all he likes, but the nose whistle is still there. πŸ™‚

  7. Realme

    Oh GET OVER YOURSELF, Matt. You’ve done way worse to him.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Can dish it out…can’t take it. Ha ha.

    2. Realme

      I just texted him that he should have proposed this weekend anyways.

    3. J-Dub421

      Matt did do a Rumor that Drew got engaged.

    4. Realme

      And he’s ruined Amanda’s day several times.

    5. J-Dub421

      Matt does encourage Ryan to get into shenanigans.

    6. cats646

      I’ve never met him, but I know I would hate being friends with Matt.

    7. Iamheasyouarehe

      I can’t see myself ever being able to call Matt a friend if we met. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. I’m gonna have to shower now ha ha ha.

  8. ukbradstith

    No way anyone with any common sense would hear that yesterday and think Matt was honestly married. You could tell by the tone, response, everything.

  9. jimmer

    Matt can’t take it. Can’t be made fun of or joked on. Has to have upper hand at all times.

    1. Realme

      Maybe it’s an only child thing. He never had siblings to get the best of him growing up.

    2. RealCatsFan

      Yeah, most of us in that situation would jokingly say “what goes around comes around” and then basically forget about it. But Matt is actively plotting his revenge – he will probably be up all night scheming. πŸ™‚

    3. RealCatsFan

      Realme, what Matt needs is a good old fashioned Dutch Rub, and maybe a wedgie to top it off.

    4. Realme

      I have two older brothers. The meanest thing the ever did to me was when I was in Kindergarten, they told me when I came to the elementary school I and all the other first graders would have to stand up before the whole school in an assembly and sing a solo. I worried about that for so long. πŸ™‚

    5. ClutchCargo

      RCF, and top it off with the “dope slap” to the back of the head.

  10. RealCatsFan

    I had to have the nasal scope like Shannon had one time, and it was one of the most uncomfortable things I ever had to tolerate. Not fun.

    1. Realme

      I found the terror before it happened to be worse than the actual thing, lol.

    2. J-Dub421

      Try going to the gynecologist.

    3. Iamheasyouarehe

      Lol! One good thing about not being a female.

    4. RealCatsFan

      Yeah, living with three females I have learned never to whine about physical afflictions or procedures in their presence.

    5. Realme

      Yes, you guys are lucky to avoid a regularly scheduled horror show from your body. πŸ™‚

  11. Realme

    I had to have that awful nose scope last year. The creepy doctor tried to force me to watch the screen when I said I wasn’t interested.

  12. Realme

    At least the LSU guy doesn’t gather his shorts in a way that makes him look like he’s wearing a diaper, the way Brad did.

    1. J-Dub421

      I still say he should just have his shorts hemmed properly.

  13. runningunnin.454

    “We wear short shorts” was written by Bob Gaudio of the Four Seasons when he was 15 years old.
    They look dumb on male basketball players, though. OK for the girls’ teams…my opinion.

    1. ClutchCargo

      I hope we’re not trending toward another short shorts era in basketball uniforms.

    2. RealCatsFan

      That would lead to a lot of loose balls on the court.

  14. Realme

    Everybody now! Ah- Whooooo, werewolves of London…

    1. runningunnin.454

      Houston, we have a problem.

  15. J-Dub421

    Reid Travis gets all of the rebounds.
