    Good morning all my fellow ksr family. So I have been in contact with my nephew and he will be coming to my home in a few weeks to help me get started on the new website. What website you ask? Well due to my overwhelming popularity amongst all of my fellow ksr commenters and bbn I have decided that I am going to launch my own website. Website name you ask? It will be I will touch on mostly UK related sports, but heck we can talk about anything going if you want. The only thing that I ask is that since I got my start here that you continue to use ksr like you always did. I do not want to take away from them. All of the ksr people are fine people and I don’t want to take away from them and their fine website. I look forward to each and every one of you visiting the site, and look forward to many future conversations. Go cats, and go future!!

    1. Realme

      I can think of a few commenters that you can take with you and keep.

    2. weneedpitino

      Haha, I bet I know the ones. I have a few critics on here. But that’s to be expected with me being so popular and all. They might be a little jealous. Go cats, and go people who are jealous of weneedpitino!!

    3. RealCatsFan

      Those will be his guest writers, Realme.

    4. RealCatsFan

      Which Pitino do you need, big ricky or little ricky?

    5. Realme

      I think he wants both. Not sure who’s the head coach and who’s the assistant though.

    6. runningunnin.454

      Little Ricky gets his chance in the first round. UL fans none too happy.

    7. weneedpitino

      Realcatsfan, I’ll take rick as the head and Richard as assistant. That is an idea I guess I will need some writers. I’ve been so excited that I never thought of that. My short list so far for writers is stillbp, realme, mrgettelfinger, realcatsfan, and big Johnson. I just recently started liking big Johnson he has got a heck of a head on him. Go cats, and go future writers of!!

    8. RealCatsFan

      I heard bigjohnson’s other nickname is “Mr Microphone”.

    9. StillBP

      wnp, I am so honored. Someone must be slicing onions near my office, my eyes have water coming from them.

    10. weneedpitino

      Realcats fan so what are you supposed to do talk into big Johnsons microphone? Stillbp it’s a long time coming I understand. If I had to guess i would say you have been waiting for this opportunity for a while. Go cats!!

    11. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      WNP, are you the same guy that’s been on here promoting his new blog for about a month?

    12. StillBP

      yes, I’ve been waiting for this opportunity ever since my Booby Petrino screen name days. I’ve come a long way thanks to KSR. But still so far to go, and maybe wnp can get me there. With writers like me and the others you mentioned bringing on board, we’ll get our own TV show before you know it. Maybe it will be on after Hey Kentucky. I know, slow my roll, we’ve got a ways to go.

    13. weneedpitino

      Oh no Mr. Gettelfinger sir that’s not me. I can see where you might make that connection though. He wouldn’t even be able to get his silly site off the ground. is gonna be a huge hit I can feel it. Go cats!!

    14. weneedpitino

      I’m so thankful that I am the one who is going to be responsible for your future success as a writer stillbp. Oh me oh my, stillbp I love it. But you’re right let’s take it slow, but i think you may be right. I think if we stick together we might do just that. You are an overachiever like i stillbp. Go cats, and go possible future TV show!!

    15. Realme

      I’m just glad we’ll have a backup plan if KSR ever tries to take the show thread away from us again.

    16. weneedpitino

      Oh no realme, that was well before I ever decided to grace you all with my presence. Did they really do that? Go cats, and boo to whoever took the show thread away some time back!!

    17. Realme

      They did, it was awful. We just picked the closest to 10 am post and made our own until they gave it back.

    18. RealCatsFan

      Can I put writing on the KSR show thread on my resume?

    19. RealCatsFan

      On a side note, my older daughter is a very talented writer. She has expressed an interest in pursuing a career in journalism, but part of me doesn’t want her to go down that road. With the advent of all the internet bloggers, it is pretty tough to make a living in that field these days.

  2. Realme

    Good job keeping your germs to yourself, Matt.

  3. wes720

    Is there a radio station Am/Fm that I can pick up in Nashville?

    1. J-Dub421

      Maybe try the Bowling Green stations, or you can stream most of them on the iHeart Radio app.

    2. Realme

      I don’t know, but you appear to be online. Can you stream it? (iheart 630 wlap or 1080 wkjk).

    3. ClutchCargo

      If wes is at work, streaming may or may not be an option. I would try the Bowling Green stations.

    4. Realme

      I’m glad my work has never blocked KSR or Iheart. Might be a deal breaker.

  4. RealCatsFan

    Still SMDH that Kansas has the potential for a de facto home game in Kansas City. Self must have pulled some more magic out from under that hairpiece. Green magic.

  5. runningunnin.454

    I didn’t know MIddlesboro was a hole in the ground.

  6. J-Dub421

    Tennessee blew their wad to beat us in the semi-finals, then crapped out against Auburn.

    1. runningunnin.454

      Did you notice Auburn on run outs with a completely uncontested layup, they threw out to a 3 shooter?
      That wouldn’t be in my playbook; but, it worked in that game.

    2. RealCatsFan

      They needed some help from one of the boner medicine radio advertisers in the Auburn game.

    3. RealCatsFan

      rg, that’s some swag for your 3-pt shooters right there. Kind of like giving UT the middle finger.

    4. StillBP

      J-Dub, you are not weneedpitino, are you? His comment on the morning post: I believe that UT will lose to Cincinnati, I think they have blown their wad already.

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      RG, that is in their “strategery” from what I hear on local radio, at least when the 3s are falling.

    6. J-Dub421

      No ma’am.

    7. Realme

      I do wonder of wnp is one of us, and I have a theory, but I’m not ready to put my guess out there yet. Let’s just say I’m looking for all lower case named posters that aren’t in the same place at the same time!

    8. weneedpitino

      Oh the mystery deepens. Come on realme when are you gonna reveal? Go cats, and go ksr internet sleuths!!

    9. weneedpitino

      Let’s just say I’m not one of you guys or gals like realme is thinking. If I’m not we should all grab a coffee and some donut sticks one morning at speedway. Go cats, and go speedway coffee!!

    10. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      It isn’t me. The only reason I did all lower case was so I didn’t have to remember to cap, especially when I kind of stupidly went with such a long name. At least on Chrome on PC it automatically populates when I type a “c”. Other browsers and devices, nah, and it takes like 5 minutes to log in. lol

    11. weneedpitino

      Ok so speedway coffee and donut sticks it is. Go cats, and go donut sticks!!

    12. Realme

      I bet we actually would have met up by now if we weren’t pretty spread out geographically.

    13. StillBP

      wnp Thornton’s has the best donuts when it comes to gas station donuts. You should try them some time.

    14. weneedpitino

      Stillbp a couple of years ago the thornton’s in Versailles had a bourbon ball donut, it was to die for. Go cats, and go bourbon ball donuts!!

  7. RealCatsFan

    Lynyrd Skynyrd was mainly from Gainesville, not Jacksonville.

    1. RealCatsFan

      Oops – I stand corrected. Not sure why I had it in my head that they were from Gainsville. Maybe because of Steve and Cassie Gaines? (Coffee needs to kick in…)

    2. J-Dub421

      I feel you. I am dragging today. Come on coffee, work your magic.

    3. weneedpitino

      Oh hey jdub sorry I forgot to mention you earlier. How would you like to be a writer for the new up and coming You’re very knowledgable and nice and I like you. Go cats, and go jdub!!

    4. RealCatsFan

      Little known fact about Skynyrd – their drummer, Artimus Pyle, was born in Louisville. So the band has a Kentucky connection.

    5. StillBP

      wnp you two actually used the phrase “blown their wad” when talking about UT this morning, at practically the same time. I think that’s a sign she definitely needs to write for your site.

    6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      A band from FL singing “Sweet Home Alabama”.

    7. weneedpitino

      Indeed stillbp. Jdub, so are you on board? We seem to be a whole lot alike. We have great minds. Go cats!!

  8. RealCatsFan

    Older daughter played a tournament at New Albany HS over the weekend – they had a little shrine dedicated to Romeo Langford up on the wall.

  9. RealCatsFan

    STD is rocking some awesome southern rock today. Love “Midnight Rider” by the Allman’s, but I actually prefer the slower, bluesy version a little more.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      That is a GREAT song.

    2. cats646

      Have any of y’all heard Greta Van Fleet?? There making classic rock great again!

    3. cats646

      And they’re all like 20 years old

    4. runningunnin.454

      Skydog is No.2 on Rolling Stone’s list of guitar players. I love the Gibson Les Paul; I hate motorcycles.

  10. Realme

    That thing where they have cameras to show live reactions is silly. If your team gets gathered into a room, where CBS has cameras pointed on you, you probably figure out that you’re in ahead of time.

    1. ClutchCargo

      I have always wondered about that. Do they have a few teams that aren’t going to make it and they just don’t show those?

    2. Realme

      I hope not, that would be mean.

  11. mikeintn

    Just a random though guys, how many would take us [ KY ] losing in the elite eight if duke would lose first game?

    1. StillBP

      no thanks. I’ll take KY going all the way and beating Duke if they have to.

    2. mikeintn


    3. runningunnin.454


    4. cats646

      Not me. I wanna play Duke in the championship. Lose to them the first game of the year, but kick their ass on the last to hang #9!!!!

    5. ClutchCargo

      Pass. I want to advance as far as possible, and it wouldn’t be worth losing in the elite 8 to see dook implode. Although, that would somewhat ease the pain.

    6. Realme

      Ditto what Clutch said.

    7. secrick

      No way , i want to play Duke again, win or lose.

    8. J-Dub421

      No, I think we are capable of winning the title and I want a shot at it.

  12. kybred1

    Are you dumb or something?
    Negative on losing at all. Who cares about Duke? I only care about UK!

    1. mikeintn

      I’ve been called worse, but I guess you’re right, it would be so good to see duke and K to blow up early with all the hap they get.

    2. RealCatsFan

      I do agree with mike – if the Cats can’t win #9, then I want to see dook and UNCheat go down in flames in spectacular fashion. That would not make up for the Cats losing, but it would make the bitter pill easier to swallow – kind of like wrapping it in bacon to give to the dog. 🙂 (side note – it is SO much easier to give a pill to a dog than it is to give one to a cat.)

  13. J-Dub421

    Great news for CJ. He’s such a great dude; he really deserves the opportunity to get a shot at his dream of playing in the NFL.

  14. Realme

    I’m so happy for CJ. Will this have hurt his draft stock? They’ll do a CJ only pro day, but still…

    1. J-Dub421

      Are they doing a CJ only pro-day, or is he participating in UK’s pro-day?

    2. Realme

      I thought he already missed UK’s and they were going to do something for just him, but I could be wrong.

    3. secrick

      Can you give me a update on CJ, can’t listen to the show.

    4. J-Dub421

      I think UK’s pro-day is April 8th, but I could be wrong.

    5. Realme

      He’s cleared to play football again!

    6. J-Dub421

      CJ is okay and has been cleared for football. He can go to the NFL draft.

    7. Realme

      Okay, good, Jdub.

    8. Realme

      No one would ever think Jdub and I are the same person. We agree on a lot, but we also post simultaneously on a regular basis. 🙂

    9. J-Dub421
    10. runningunnin.454

      I see that AutoMac was 5 for 5 for Memphis. The Chicago Bears win the NFL Stupidity Trophy.

    11. Realme

      Yes, RG! At least Austin is playing somewhere.

  15. J-Dub421

    RM, great minds think alike, and so do we. 😉

    1. secrick

      Thanks for the update my friends, that is great news.

  16. Realme

    I’m serious. If you get a song stuck in your head, singing Vote For Wanda Baker will fix it.

    1. RealCatsFan

      That’s a little bit like my suggestion to our friend wenee to put gasoline on his itchy crab bites and lighting it to stop the itching. 🙂

  17. runningunnin.454

    Never want to go to Des Moines; and, I don’t even know the way to San Jose.

    1. J-Dub421

      My husband had to go to Tulsa for work last year. He said it sucked.

    2. RealCatsFan

      Kyle Tucker and Tom Leach were actually talking about Des Moines like they were pleasantly surprised.

  18. runningunnin.454

    Well, MJ going out on a limb? Kansas State can’t win without Dean Wade.

  19. runningunnin.454

    WKU was a semi-finalist in the NIT last year; and, not invited this year winning 20 games? Outrageous.
