WWE Smackdown and yesterday’s tell-all podcast will be two of the hot topics on today’s show when Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond tee it up for another edition of Kentucky Sports Radio radio.
Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.
Listen to Kentucky Sports Radio
Hey Kentucky needs to have a tell all segment or… did you know segment. Hmmm
Within certain guidelines of course…
I’m almost finished with the behind the scenes podcast, and it’s all it promised to be. I thought Ryan’s Rob Bromley story would be the best, but then there’s the caller to Oscar story and Karl’s “shots”. This is an absolute must listen.
Agreed (Karl’s shots).. outstanding
I’m in the middle of the podcast. Had to pause to listen to today’s show.
Bahamas story has been told before, just not in detail. I think it was Matt on periscope.
I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but probably will today. Just not ’til after the show. 🙂
Isn’t Shaq’s son only a junior? We’ll see if he actually end up at Arizona….
Would have been cool to have Shaq’s son on our team, but things usually work out for the best in recruiting in hindsight, so oh well. But yeah, that’s a long time to stay committed when you’re a teenager.
And I got moderated for something completely innocuous.
Don’t know why they have the moderation; vile comments get through, and completely innocent things go into the deep dark hole. Just get rid of it; we’re all adults here….well, most of us.
I just pointed out that Baker originally committed to California but is now coming to UK.
Well, they found Richard Simmons….we can all breathe now.
Guess I don’t need to listen to the podcast then.
Stephen Johnson is our QB and should be. He wasn’t allowed to run in the Spring Game which is a huge aspect of his game. SJ is a gamer in games. The rest of the team responds well to him and plays better with him at the helm; his calmness rubs off on the rest of the team. SJ is the guy. Case closed.
Agree. There should be a competition, but for the backup.
You’re right. It was like a different team when Johnson got the job…the change was immediate.
It would only affect morale negatively if he loses the job.
I am steadfastly on the same wagon as all of you.
A former football coach was not the family man that he was purported to be, Barnhart knew, and he kept his job
The rumors about BCG and women were NOT exaggerated and the stories of public drunkenness were definitely not exaggerated. I witnessed it on multiple occasions. Ask Coach Mitchell’s wife about it too. She used to work at the restaurant where a lot of it happened.
That triple play was amazing….and rare.
The announcers nearly fell out of their chairs.
I watched the replay 3 times. Beautiful. THAT is the stuff that makes me miss my former love and obsession with baseball.
I don’t like baseball, but that triple play was kind of badass.
That and the last UL out was when we trapped their baserunner between first and second base, and tagged him in a rundown….oops, most embarrassing play in baseball.
No highlight of that one ended up on my Twitter timeline, but I would have enjoyed that too, especially against the Cards.
I don’t watch baseball, but the triple play was super cool.
Aaron Hernandez’ attorney, Jose Baez (former Casey Anthony’s attorney), says that his suicide could actually be a murder by inmates or prison officials.
My first thought also. I am no fan of Hernandez and think he was guilty of the single murder. The timing of this “suicide” is indeed odd.
Hernandez had a dream life and threw it all away. He was likely staring down life in prison. That would make a lot of people end things.
The fact that he had “hope” in his appeal for the first conviction makes me question the whole suicide thing. I agree that the odds are he stays behind bars for life. I’m simply saying that there was a shot and a little hope there. Very odd timing after his acquittal.
If it was murder, then there will be some kind of physical evidence. He was a big dude and would have to have been manhandled by several people if he was killed. There will be bruising of some kind or scratches, something.
With dirty prison officials as a possible scenario, we shouldn’t be blinded by the fact of how easy it would be to stage something like this behind the walls. Prison is a different game where things can be easily altered if the higher-ups are part of it. Likely scenario? No. However, I do think there is a small possibility.
The public thinks Shawshank-like scenarios are in the past. I have never been in prison but would argue that those situations are still far more common than any of us dare believe.
I picture prisons being less corrupt and dangerous nowadays, because surely they all have cameras everywhere. But then I might just be watching too much 60 Days In. 🙂
We want to keep drugs from coming across a 2000 mile border and can’t keep them out of the most secure facilities in the country.
We want to protect the general public outside of prison but can’t keep many prisoners from being stabbed, raped or beat to death. Houston we have a problem.
That feeling when you are in jail for the murder you committed to get away with a different murder, that you end up acquitted for.
And they got that Cleveland Facebook guy that killed that old man for no reason…well, he killed himself.
Just as well…no trial. I can’t believe that guy was allowed to mentor teens…insane.
Way to save the taxpayers some money. No need to waste $ on a trial now.
The whole thing about the Cleveland murder was just tragic, sad, and senseless. I read a number of accounts that the shooter had no previous criminal record, and many people spoke highly of him as a really nice guy – even his ex. It’s just scary to think that someone could snap like that, or that they could walk around with such evil thoughts in their mind and appear normal to most of us. I agree that the way it ended is probably for the best – it would have been that much worse if police or innocent bystanders had been injured or killed in a shootout. Still, very tragic for all involved, including the families of the victim and the perpetrator.
Follow up on the Podcast: With how well Harrow played during the year he had to sit out do you think this affected Marquis Teague’s decision to leave and go to the draft?
The NCAA tournament is a crap shoot. The best team rarely wins. Cal is a great coach and has not underachieved.
With the tourney paths he’s had, the officials that have affected some games, and the random luck aspects of a one and done tournament, I don’t see how anyone could say Cal has underachieved. It’s not like UK has the ONLY talent every year.
Look at Duke this season. All that talent and lost in the second round. Kansas always has a lot of talent and routinely loses early. You cannot convince me that you could give any other coach our teams and that they would do better with them than Cal does.
Yep. Critics don’t give Cal credit for never losing to lesser teams in the tourney. That’s what underachieving would look like.
Not to mention, Cal gets nice kids who go to class and rarely get in trouble.
I wonder how many games Andy Kennedy has coached while under the influence of alcohol.
I would say Cal has simply achieved. I only say that because we have been the overall favorite at least 4 of the years he’s been here with only 1 title. I say that to say this. He has also taken some average teams and made deep runs when he probably shouldn’t have.
I was amused at all the people on here last night went berserk about the football team rings. Especially the part about the Governor’s Cup.
All schools do that for bowl games; and rivalry games are a big deal.
There’s the Iron Bowl, the Old Oaken Bucket, the Little Brown Jug, and the Paul Bunyan Trophy.
Even Ole Miss and Miss State have the Egg Bowl, and Wash vs Wash State have the Apply Cup.
That’s part of the fun and tradition of college football.
I didn’t have any problem with the rings.
Agree. Louisville has referenced UK on their rings before.
Nor do I. Also the comparisons to IU basketball are stupid. Everyone gets rings for bowl games in football, all teams do it. No blue blood programs in basketball hang banners for a sweet 16, none.
Oops, make that last one the Apple Cup.
People forget that other coaches have attempted to build rosters on one and dones. It’s not as easy as Cal makes it seem. Check out some of the benchmarks:
Ben Howland 12-13: Shabazz Muhammad, Kyle Anderson, Tony Parker, and Jordan Adams
Steve Alford 15-16: Lonzo Ball, TJ Leaf, Akibogu
Bill Self 13-14: Wiggins, Selden, Embiid, Frank Mason
Thad Matta 10-11: Sullinger, DeShaun Thomas, Aaron Craft
Lorenzo Romar….this doesn’t require explanation
Johnny Jones 14-15: Ben Simmons and Blakeney
Coach K: Great success in 2014-15, slightly lower achievement than UK the past two seasons.
Coaches like Howland, Johnny Jones, and Romar attempted to go the one and done route, and not only did they fare worse than Cal, they failed so badly it got them fired. Cal is killing it.
People are underestimating Cal’s ability to manage egos and high level talent. In that aspect of X’s and O’s he is superior. Tubby is a great in-game coach- better than Cal IMHO but his inability to be flexible in style to best coach the high level talent is the major reason he didn’t have more success here. How would Cal have handled Rondo? I see Rondo being a much better team player under Cal and that team being more succesful.
Tubby pulled back on Rondo’s reigns a lot. Cal would have let him run. We didn’t see the best of Rondo in college. Unfortunately, I feel the speed of the game is passing up the style Tubby likes to play. Even Memphis is not a place where that style of play will be welcomed very long. He needs to be at a Wisconsin, Virginia, Marquette-type school.
I agree that Cal coaching Rondo would have been on another level.
I have always been a Tubby supporter but I think his inflexible persona hampers his ability to progress with the game. He likely didn’t even go after super-high level recruits simply because he didn’t want to play the new game. Tubby needs a younger (not Saul) recruiting coordinator to bring in and handle the better talent. Someone to be a go- between. Tubby would have to swallow some pride and accept some loss of control but the stuff at Memphis is indicative of him being out of touch.
To be fair to Tubby and Memphis, I’m not sure the Lawson brothers would be a “joy” to coach for anyone. At least the one seems to have a massive ego.
Don’t know how we got on Andy Kennedy; but didn’t he settle an arrest and law suit in which he was accused of punching a cab driver and using racial slurs? Then he counter sued the guy because he couldn’t perform in bed. Ha Ha Ha, real classy …and all man.
Sword & Scale is my podcast of choice right now. That one tops my list at the moment. Some crazy stories on there.
I used to listen to that, but I feel like the host needs some boundaries when the true crime victims are children. I don’t know how far back you go, but there was one horrific story he did and then the next episode kind of spoofed it. Plus he gets on my nerves being overly dramatic. But yes, great stories.
Great cast. Some really disturbing but entertaining stories.
My Favorite Murder is my top crime podcast now, but you have to enjoy the 2 ladies’ personalities, they go on a lot of random tangents.
Cannot lie, True Crime Garage with the beer reviews has some good shows. I can overlook some of The Captain’s Tom-foolery and some of the less informed speculation; at least on most episodes.
I agree with S&S. Very, very graphic. To be fair to the host, the depth in which he goes is why that podcast is so successful. Others don’t go that far into details. I’m only 4 episodes in right now.
I’ll need to try the others mentioned.
Speaking on the graphic details in the podcasts, I’m sure common courtesy would be to let the families of the victims review the cast prior to release. You know the families have to give them the green light to proceed with production & release of these. I wonder if there is some sort of law to enforce that confirmation.
Another one y’all might want to try is Last Podcast on the Left. Extremely nsfw, but some really great episodes.
Agree with this caller. See my reply under #18.
Lol, that’s a “fair” question.
Banks, RealEstate, local Businesses, Kroger, Sponsorships often provide up-front money for performances/appearances.
The 76’s shopped Okafor when they were shopping Noel. There was zero interest from other teams in Okafor.
