Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Today on KSR: We want more Sergio Dipp!

Last night as I was trying to doze off to the sweet sounds of Beth Moins (she did well) and Rex Ryan (he did not) on the second of two Monday Night Football broadcasts, I, like everyone else watching at home, was introduced to the legend that is Sergio Dipp.

In case you missed it, Dipp was the sideline reporter for the Broncos-Chargers game and his first live report from the field immediately went viral.

Take a look and you’ll know why:

The internet destroyed Dipp — search his name; it’s good — which led to a very dramatic follow-up video from Dipp in his hotel room:

ESPN now has a decision on its hands as to what it should do with Dipp moving forward, but I say he should do every MNF game. Fans were craving more Dipp last night.

Now for some UK stuff…

John Calipari was up early to see Simi Shittu.

UK target Simi Shittu hosted 37 coaches at an open gym at Vermont Academy at 6:00 am this morning, and John Calipari was among those in attendance. Shittu does not have a confirmed offer from Kentucky, but he is high on Calipari’s board in the Class of 2018. Shittu has named Kentucky as one of the schools pursuing him the hardest at this stage in his recruitment.

Eddie Gran to talk about the offense this afternoon.

We’ll get some football updates out of Eddie Gran following Tuesday’s practice, per usual. He’ll likely be talking quarterbacks, Benny Snell’s health and the Wildcat formation. Remember, after Saturday’s game, Gran said, “We might not ever run the Wildcat again. Some years it’s good for you, some years it’s not.”

We’ll see if his attitude has changed after a couple days to digest the EKU game.

Did you Booger McFarland’s tweet about Matt Elam?

McFarland joined his colleague Greg McElroy in calling UK defensive lineman Matt Elam “lazy.”

Booger McFarland: “(Matt) Elam is (as) lazy as I’ve ever seen.”

I don’t think Matt Elam is inviting the SEC Network crew over for dinner anytime soon.

KSR Football Podcast on hold until tomorrow.

Due to some scheduling conflicts, the KSR Football Podcast will have to wait another day before it hits the internet. Normally we record it on Tuesdays, but this week’s show is on hold until tomorrow morning. We’ll release immediately.

Also from the KSR podcast world, Matt and I are recording the third edition of our Free Money Podcast tomorrow afternoon. Plan accordingly.

The line for Kentucky-South Carolina is all over the place. 

It got down to -4.5 and as high as -7.5, but now the line sits at -6.5. I wish I could’ve gotten a bite of the money line when it was up over a touchdown, but then again, I don’t bet on my own team. (Wink, wink)

KSR radio on the way.

More Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond coming up at 10 am…

    Male sideline reporters are like male stewardesses and male weather girls: there’s no point to them and most guys end up feeling shorted.

    1. BBNDan7

      Those “male weather girls” are quite disappointing………

  2. Ben

    Dude is like a Mexican Captain Kirk with that cadence.

  3. Duuuuuude

    Good F___ing God! Can we not just watch a football game and let it be a f___ing football game? All the side shows is ruining the sport. This guy deserves a second chance but I don’t want to hear any more sideline reporters talk about anything but football.

    ESPN will definitely give him another shot since he’s played the bull crap minority card over a damn football game. No matter how much I/we try to escape political bs, it seems to be poisoning every damn aspect of everyday life. Dude needs to just laugh at his obvious stage fright moment(we all have had them) and do better next time.

    1. Eazy

      He was criticized for talking about Joseph being a minority. That’s the whole point, I guess you missed it. Also, if you don’t think it’s tough to be a minority especially now you are lying to yourself.

    2. AirRaid98

      I wouldn’t know. Also, ESPN is garbage

    3. UK Big Board Update

      Well, we know who AirRaid98 voted for….

  5. ClutchCargo

    NFL is already borderline unwatchable. NFL on ESPN is garbage.

    (Sigh). When did we all decide to get offended at everything ? Who cares.

    1. AirRaid98

      *quietly retreats to my triggered safe space*

    2. Luether

      Democrats decided…

  7. Chagan02

    Yeah, real tough. Free college, entitlements, and apparently picked to do a MNF game only because you are a minority. Tough life. Please, this ain’t the 60s.

    1. UK Big Board Update

      Right Power!

  8. Chagan02

    And yes, ESPN is garbage. Sports are becoming increasingly intolerable.

  9. BigBlueBass

    So I’m assuming Jones is trying to the “cool guy” with this “story”…. no one friggin Cares!!! Just play the Game!!!

    1. UK Big Board Update
