    When you’re watching cable and can’t find nothing to watch you get bored.  When you get bored you play basketball for Billy Gillispie.  When you play basketball for Billy Gillispie you get multiple head trauma’s.  When you get multiple head Traumas you stop playing basketball at Kentucky.  When you stop playing basketball at Kentucky you decide to write a book and then decide to sexually abuse people and then go to prison and then get all of your stuff stolen by Richie Farmer while in Prison.  Don’t get all of your stuff stolen by Richie Farmer while in prison. Get rid of cable, switch to DIRECTV.

    Let’s start on a good note today. Can you explain the Santa Claus picture at the bottom of the page? I’ve been coming hear for 3+ years and I’ve always wondered if there was a story behind it.

    Don’t let UK player become Jesus Freaks. It leads Michael Porter to chase 15 Y.O.s & Cameron Mills to get fatter than Ryan Lemond.

    #2 – That is a ridiculous photo of Kige Ramsey taken back in the day when Kige was a You Tube sensation. The photo follows the ridiculous portion of the site’s mission statement would be my take.

    For those of you needing an excuse to quit playing the lottery, just think about Matts football %s from yesterday. Based on the percentages from all 12 games, UK would have a .000056% chance of going undefeated in football this coming season. However, that still equates to a 1 in 1,796,824 chance of going undefeated, which is STILL about 100 times better than your chances of hitting the powerball jackpot.

    So before you go wasting your money on powerball tickets, just know that UK has a 100 times better shot of going undefeated in football than you winning millions of dollars 🙂

    We’ll learn something about the national media from this story. This is a total non-national story with any other program in the country. We’ll see how the national writers treat our program by how they respond to this story. It’s an opportunity to write something bad about Kentucky, so we’ll see what happens. Either way, it’s a sad set of circumstances for all involved.

    Very sad news. Michael Porter was obviously not a UK caliber player but I thought when he was at UK he was a nice young man. When he left he did it with class. I pray for the sake of the victims that it’s not true and also for the sake of his wife and child.

    Matt, on the Kris Humphries note, he had is offer at Kansas pulled because the returning players told Roy Boy Hump was too much of a douche and they didn’t want to play with him. As you can see that personality carried right on through. I think he was just a cancer and that is how he ended up a Minny

    I feel like Jefferson has the same plan as Wiltjer. He wants to go to play with the best players. The only thing is, this year he can do that at NC State with their current players and recruits coming in. Wouldn’t be that surprising, or dumb to go join the Wolfpack.

    I am an Architect in Louisville, and have within the past year have done 2 major renovation projects in which we took a 25,000 square foot building and demolished everything but the foundation and structure and renovated it to where it is 99% a new building with all the bells and whistles. You hardly ever notice the structure, and you NEVER see the foundation. A full on renovation can be just as good, and given the GREAT location of RUPP now, I think it is ideal.

    I dont expect one every year, but with Cal the expectations have been raised like never before. A title every 5 years is what we should expect with the players that we have been bringing in. We have had the best team in the land twice under Cal and were the favorites in the Final Four two years ago and we won it once. It takes a lot of luck to win it all and this year we happened to have it on our side.

    KY state politics like most states is a power trip. Not all politicians but most, are guys who need their ego, among other things stroked, and love having power over people. Love having people talk about them and love the perks they get with the power. David Williams is definitely like this.

    There are no other “answers” as that recent caller tried to say. It is the FACILITIES and the facilities alone. If we upgrade the facilities, we can attract coaches, which Mitch has already said he would be willing to pay. THEN we can hope to compete. Everyone in their right mind knows what the problem is. So why are people still trying to find other reasons.



  153. JayCee
    10:59 am May 15, 2012 Permalink

    If you want to start to fix this problem, the good people of Ky need to stop funneling every single male child toward a basketball court and line them up on a FB field somewhere instead.

    Heck, even a Pop Warner league would be a start. CHange the mentality from the ground up, not the other way around.



  154. Head Bussa

  156. Jax Teller
    11:03 am May 15, 2012 Permalink

    The whole football argument boils down to chicken/egg: Do you build facilities first, which leads to winning? Do you win before you pour $ into the program? Do you hire a big name coach and watch him turn it around? That’s why Mitch gets paid the big bucks, he’ll decide what he thinks is best.

    The reason UK football doesn’t generate more income than it currently does is because they have put a losing product on the field for decades. The fanbase would be doubled if we were a consistent winning program over the years which in turn would lead to more income which in turn would lead to better facilities.

    Couchsurfing is an old and time-honored tradition. It is pretty common in more bohemian circles. As a musician, I’ve stayed in lots of folks’ homes. But as a host and as a surfer, I can tell you that, generally speaking, the kind of person open to participating in this activity is respectful and community-minded. It’s not really a suburbanite value.

    I am a student at Auburn. Last summer me and two buddies from Atlanta (braves fans) took a road trip to Cinnci to catch a Reds game (big win at Turner field last night btw, I was there). Anyways, we used Couch Surfer and had an awesome time. The guy was in his mid 20’s and had a glass eye! It was really a great experience, basically it was just a weekend long party. We also had the pleasure of couch surfing with two others for the first night (2 sisters from NJ). So the glass eyed man hosted 5 of us one night, then just us three the next. I highly recommend using this at least once because it is something new that turned out to be a very pleasant surprise!

    The more the state bonds the more risk there is the more they will have to pay for bonding. Williams is trying to not balloon the amount of debt tied to the state to keep our borrowing costs low. If you careless how much debt our State carries then they could fund everything from roads and bridges to dorms and stadiums. The problem is stadiums are just last on the list.

    I have a pretty low opinion on Williams. His father ran over a friend of mine crossing the street in a crosswalk when she was 13 yrs old. Williams used his political weight to make sure his dad wasn’t held liable and to make it difficult for her to get any compensation for her injuries. In fact, she was still in court 15 yrs later trying to get all her medical bills paid for. I know for a fact that she was not seeking a large sum of money- under $50,000

    What if we could figure a way to get John Gruden to be our football coach. Joker could stay on as an assistant. Maybe Gruden would take the challenge of rebuilding our program and it could become a reality TV show:)
