    Nothing short of Diallo is coming back will live up to the hype of advertising “breaking news” yesterday for today. Just kidding. But that would be great. Probably more like a football commitment / re-commitment.

    1. J-Dub421

      Jarren Williams re-committment? *fingers crossed*

    2. Realme

      Seems like the best guess to me.

    3. J-Dub421

      BOOM! I called it!

    4. RealCatsFan

      Nailed it!

    5. Realme

      Good thing the super negative portion of the fan base didn’t make him decide to stay away. Some of them seemed to be trying (online).

    6. RealCatsFan

      So how good is this kid? Is he a program altering type recruit?

    7. RealCatsFan

      The bird singing in the background seems happy that he recommitted. πŸ™‚

    8. Realme

      Matt says he’s that level. Haven’t heard what Freddie and the gang think.

    9. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Again I say, this is JUST…TOO…Suh_WEET!!!

    10. Booby Petrino

      Way to go J-Dub, you nailed it

    11. J-Dub421

      I watched some of the video from his spring game and he looked really good. (Though it’s hard to tell against high school competition.) He’s a dual threat QB. You know how we like to judge based on their other offers? Well this kid has offers from Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Alabama, LSU, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, and a bunch of other schools.

    12. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Now can we get a video of Stoops and Marrow riding hoverboards?

      Way to go J-“Nostradamus”Dub421!!!

    13. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      And their wives dabbing? I didn’t notice Ellen semi-dabbing until a commenter mentioned it.

    14. J-Dub421

      I bet Mac Jones just breathed a sigh of relief.

  2. runningunnin.454

    Can’t be really big news…you didn’t say “Holy Crap”.

  3. bennyd113

    If it is not anything to do with diallo or bamba i am going to be really disappointed. You cant mess with my head like this hahahaha

  4. DrSayre

    I dont think this has anything to do with recruitment, because other people would be tweeting about it

  5. Shagaris Sock Puppet

    If its not something to do with basketball recruiting someobody (Fans) might be jumping off a building….

  6. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Para bailar Mo Bamba???

    1. runningunnin.454

      That would get three “Holy Craps”.

  7. TBW3011

    Matt got a haircut.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      A girlfriend. πŸ˜‰

  8. ukblue22

    I use the online version instead of the app because every time you click on something you have to see an Add. It’s way to much.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Yeah, and it uses data.

  9. RealCatsFan

    Matt’s out creepin’ on the neighbors again! πŸ˜€

    1. RealCatsFan

      Now there are going to be 264 UK fans surrounding that back yard for a peek at boobies. πŸ˜‰

    2. J-Dub421

      Sounds like this chick is an exhibitionist.

    3. RealCatsFan

      Doesn’t Matt know that looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun? You don’t stare at it, it’s too risky. You get a sense of it then you look away.

      -Seinfeld reference of the day. πŸ™‚

    4. J-Dub421

      Lol! πŸ™‚

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I was returning a rental car (traveling for my job) the other day, and they had no car for a customer who had made a reservation. Of course he started into the “But what good is a reservation?” speech. I felt bad for the guy because I agreed with him, but I had to suppress a laugh.

      “I don’t think you do. If you did, I’d have a car. See, you know how to *TAKE* the reservation, you just don’t know how to *HOLD* the reservation, and that’s really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Aaaaaaaaanybody can just take them!”

  10. RealCatsFan

    So, are the boobies the “breaking news”?

  11. Shagaris Sock Puppet

    I heard the breaking news was Walmart bought out Kroger

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Oh my, wouldn’t that be a kick in the head! “Wal-Mart Black Friday Special Field”? Yeesh.

  12. Shagaris Sock Puppet

    Look at Mark Stoops getting a re commitment from a big time QB!

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door


  13. Realme

    “Is this one stick?”

  14. CATandMONKEY

    Potentially program changing news. I will drink to that!

  15. J-Dub421

    That Lamar Jackson fumble, the gift that keeps on giving.

    1. RealCatsFan

      They seem to have a rash of gifts that keep on giving at that school. (Pun absolutely intended!) πŸ˜€

    2. Realme

      LOL RCF.

  16. RealCatsFan

    De’Aaron Fox, KAT, Brandon Knight, Nerlens Noel… I could go on. All of these are high level recruits that Cal brought in who also proved to be extremely intelligent, articulate, genuinely great young men. Remember when the trolls were telling us about all of the thugs that Cal was going to bring in?

    1. J-Dub421

      Devin Booker is taking a Special Olympics kid with him to the NBA draft to rep the Suns.

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Yes, and there are several you could add to that list. Devin is taking a sick kid to the lottery.

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      You beat me J-Dub!

    4. J-Dub421

      I’ve said it a thousand times. Cal brings in the nicest kids.

    5. Realme

      So right, RCF. I think Booker makes friends with special needs kids because his sister is special needs, so he really know how to identify with them. It’s more than a superficial do-goody thing with him.

    6. runningunnin.454

      The announcers were talking about Booker and his friend during the Warriors game yesterday. Everybody appreciates that kind of gesture.

  17. RogerW

    Doesn’t Cal already have that feather in his cap? Kanter?

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I guess this is considered even more dramatic because Hami was only there 1 semester if he leaves this year.

  18. Realme

    I personally would rather not see my neighbors nude.

    1. J-Dub421

      I’ve been to nude beaches in Europe. The people you see nude are not anyone you would EVER want to see nude.

    2. Realme

      Some things you can’t un-see.

    3. RealCatsFan

      Two elderly women that reside in a retirement home decide to liven the usually dull place up by taking off their clothes and streak down the hall. They disrobe and proceed to run down the hallway in only their B-day suits.

      They pass two elderly gentlemen who are sitting in the hallway. One man looks to the other one and asks “what were those two women wearing?” The other gentleman replies “I don’t know, but it sure did need ironing!”

    4. runningunnin.454

      Now that’s funny.

  19. RealCatsFan

    Kind of nice to get a football recruit that ‘Bama was also after, and not have them steal him away. (Although I still want to see us keep a highly rated in-state recruit that they want. IMO, when we start keeping kids like that, then we have REALLY arrived in recruiting.)

  20. J-Dub421

    No, it wasn’t. However a portion of our fan base hates Briscoe and will pounce on any reason to bash him.

    1. Realme

      I purposely avoided reading any comments on that, knew it would be a harsh reaction from many. Could he have said it better? Yes. Do we need to lose our minds over it? No.

    2. J-Dub421

      He said that after about the 10th question in a row about other players!!!

    3. Realme

      Oh good, Matt’s going to make it worse. Nothing some people like more than an excuse to bash the twins or Briscoe.

    4. RealCatsFan

      Matt is kind of trashing Briscoe on the radio right now. I did see a little backtalk from him towards Cal at times, what kind of “problems” did he cause for the coaching staff?

    5. J-Dub421

      I don’t remember Briscoe ever getting into trouble of any kind.

    6. Realme

      Basically, you either have to be an extremely good player, or have a superhumanly flawless attitude at all times. Otherwise, you will be highly criticized as a UK player. God forbid they be human beings (as teenagers!) and let it show.

    7. runningunnin.454

      Briscoe just has that natural Northeast acerbic personality. I have cousins in N.Y. that are the same way…they don’t mean anything by it.

  21. ukjaybrat

    Called the recommit last night. It was pretty obvious since they were just down there for his spring game. Probably won’t be here for a week or so. At the hospital now welcoming my second baby to the world. Hold down the fort guys. See you next week most likely

    1. Realme

      Congrats Jay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. J-Dub421


    3. RealCatsFan

      Congrats, and hoping that everything goes smoothly for mom and baby. Missed Mother’s Day by a matter of hours. πŸ™‚

    4. runningunnin.454

      New BBN member….great. Congrats!

    5. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      That is AWESOME news Jay! Congrats to infinity!

  22. runningunnin.454

    Fox > Ball is a no brainer; I’ve said all year he was the best PG in the country. I think now we’re hearing from NBA insiders instead of “expert” talking heads just buying into the Ball hype.

  23. Realme

    Did we figure out who Matt meant when he said 2 players didn’t finish class at UK under Cal? Orton and ?

    1. J-Dub421

      I don’t know who the other is. If I had to guess I would say Lamb or Young because both seem to lack a work ethic.

    2. Realme

      It just seems like he always said Orton only, until this year.

    3. J-Dub421

      We’ve had a 1000 APR score for a while. Maybe Matt misspoke?

    4. Realme

      Good thinking.

  24. J-Dub421

    Is this woman secretly the Cookie Monster?

  25. Realme

    As a former girl scout, I feel like I can admit something. Those cookies are overpriced and not any better than the average cookie off the grocery store shelf.

    1. J-Dub421

      They really aren’t any more expensive than most cookies at the grocery store though.

    2. Realme

      I don’t know, for the amount of cookies in the package I think they might be. Not that I think about cookies too much or anything. πŸ™‚

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Those thin mints though. Addictive, and I’ve never seen another cookie like them at the store.

    4. Realme

      I think the Keebler Elves make a copycat of those. Again, I’m not all about cookies. Okay, I am.

    5. J-Dub421

      Samoas are my weakness.

    6. RealCatsFan

      There is nothing so tempting as a batch of chocolate chip cookies when they are still warm and gooey from the oven. In fact, I often can’t wait for that. I am all-in for chocolate chip cookie dough. My mom used to have to run me out of the kitchen when she was cooking them, or I would eat them all before they even hit the oven. I recall my sister was upset after a relationship breakup one time, and instead of ice cream, she said she consoled herself by eating an entire roll of raw cookie dough – so I guess it runs in the family!

  26. Ranger492

    Seems like everyone might have forgotten about Darnell Dodson on the list of most trouble in Cal area? He liked to “hang out” a little too much according to Cal.

  27. RealCatsFan

    Re Scary NASCAR crashes – often the ones that look the worst are easier on the drivers than the relatively “normal” looking ones. Earnhardt’s crash is a case in point. Didn’t look that bad when it happened, but it’s all about the G-forces that the body sustains.

  28. runningunnin.454

    The worst nascar wreck I remember was the one that killed Fireball Roberts, and it led to safety improvements like flame retardant suits and the foam backed fuel cell.

    1. RealCatsFan

      There have been some pretty horrific wrecks in NHRA drag racing as well. Don Garlits pioneered the rear engine dragster after getting cooked like a marshmallow when his engine caught fire and he had 200 mph winds fanning the flames back at him.

    2. runningunnin.454

      The fires are especially horrifying. Roberts was known as Fireball, and he was killed in a “fireball”.
      Actually he was called that from his college pitching days, I think at U. of Florida.

  29. Realme

    If you can’t “get to know” freshmen basketball players in 2017 with the internet, that’s on you. I hate that argument.

    1. J-Dub421

      I know. Players are way more accessible now due to social media.
