    You do know that there is another meaning of lost besides meaning they died. We did loose these guys but Drew never even came close to meaning that they died so why is it disprespectful? This was a good video about all the good people that have come through kentucky. GO CATS!

    This isn’t disrespectful at all. It is awesome. I loved it. It took a lot of time to make and it is a great video.

    Get over yourselves people and every critical bone in your bodies. If you don’t get this and get upset, you don’t need to be on this site. Honestly. Good post Drew.

    I lost it when Richie Farmer popped up. Richie jokes never fail to make me giggle like an idiot.

    Nice video. Don’t really think the Farmer footage should’ve been in there though.

    I wish they’d take every negative comment off, good riddance to the trolls, rival sites and crabs in general. Go KSR!

    If If you don’t like the posts on this site, you can do it I do…..don’t pay for it. Really – Lazy-ass b****** complaining about free stuff.

    I was doing a tour of duty- could someone catch me up in regards to Beisner being referenced in video?

    Great video Drew.
    Those who complain just don’t like themselves.

    Great job Drew on looking back on 2012. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Our 2012 team will eventually be considered one of the best teams ever in basketball.

    Damn Drew that was good !! Seeing last year team always reminds me to appreciate the greatness of that team.

    Great job, Drew. Good blend of humor, melancholy, and joy. I miss all seven of the guys who left last year but none more than Darius.

    Man I’m gonna miss that team, incredibly awesome. Good work on the video.

    The reason we miss them so much is not just for what they achieved but for how they went about it. Something this year’s team has yet to demonstrate.

    literally had to stop watching once it got to the basketball part. too depressing.

    Literally teared up once last years team was shown. What an amazing group of players. Excellent memorium video once again Mr. Franklin!

    Hats off to Drew. I have a request. If I ever leave my childhood behind, I’d want Drew to make an In Memoriam of what I leave behind. On second thought, a 15 second video is not much use.

    love it! thanks!

    Good video but KSR just doesn’t have the power to avoid the left wing political stuff. It lessened an otherwise great video.

    Good video Drew. All joking aside, I really can’t help but think those football players could have been so much more had they had a different coaching staff. King, Fields, Neloms… they were all great players with a bad staff and a mediocre QB. Miss those BB players though. tear

    Great video!!!! Good work Drew!!!!! Is Beiser gone from KSR forever?? I’m sure it’s a touchy subject, but it would be awesome to hear him on your next Gillespie podcast.
