UK Fan of the Day Didn’t Like That Call, Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast


(Photo by Michael Huang)

Manny, a good friend of KSR, doesn’t agree with every call in Rupp Arena and he’s not shy in letting the crew know when he is less than satisfied with their officiating. But he always agrees that you need your afternoon notes and podcast. So here you go…

— Should we be worried about UK sitting at No. 1 in the polls? The last two times our Cats were on top, they lost their very next road game. John Wall and friends lost at South Carolina back in 2010 and this team lost earlier this season at Indiana. UK is on the road against Georgia tomorrow night, you worried?

— On the SEC teleconference this morning, Cal said the conference is better than it has been since he’s been here. “The SEC is by far the best it’s been in the last three seasons,” he said. Just as he said a few weeks ago, he again predicted four of the top five teams in the conference will make the Sweet 16 this year.

— Calipari called Georgia’s Kentavious Caldwell-Pope one of the best in the league. “Forget about class,” he added. The Bulldogs’ freshman guard is averaging just under 15 points and five rebounds per game. He scored a career-high 25 points last time out against Ole Miss.

— KSRCollege.com, your second favorite website on this here Internet, has complete coverage from the pizza eating contest at Raniero’s in Cold Spring. Jared Lorenzen and Patrick Towles lost to KSTV Casting Call legend Will Chambers and Mark Collier of the Fort Thomas Matters. The final score was all but 8 ounces to all but 12 ounces.

— Did you see Terrell Suggs call Skip Bayless a douchebag on First Take this morning? Here…

“Skip, once again, stop it. Be an analyst. Don’t be a douchebag.”

— On a personal note, I’m going up against a 92-year old woman this week in a college basketball handicapping contest for BeyondTheBets.com. We’ll each pick three games a day and whoever has the best record on Sunday will be declared the winner. BTB says she is “a former high school basketball player who could have played at the collegiate level if not for suffering a severe back injury in the late 1930s. However, the grandma – an avid newspaper reader – still keeps up with the game, studying box scores in between watching Soap Operas and solving word puzzles.” I’m about to get humiliated. See our picks for tonight here. This is going to be so embarrassing.

    I am glad someone will call Skip Bayless a douchebag to his face on the air because that is exactly what he is. The worst person in the media of all time. That is the worst show in history because of the people they have on it. And when Stephen A. Smith comes on. I will just stop now before I get myself upset.

    Suggs demonstrated his complete lack of class. When the man had no rational argument, he turned to name calling. I wish he would have used some of that aggression in the game yesterday. Did he even play.

    Looking at the Rupp picture it appears there are at least 3 to 1 young people to ‘bluehairs’. Why was it so quiet?

    6. I’d bet $1000 you’re a Bengals fan. I’d bet $1,000,000 they didn’t have a game yesterday. Suggs called him out for what he is…well, at least for one of the things Bayless is.

    I can’t stand Bayless, but Suggs is a thug also. Poor Flacco is like Carson Palmer on that team, has nothing but thugs to play with.

    Man, I love that Suggs called Bayless about about being an a-hole. Wonder if Doug Gottlieb would ever have the balls to interview Suggs…maybe he could shut that douchebag up too.



  32. Is there an IT Department??

    Can somebody there please fix the freaking Podcast links? I mean, there’s no issue making sure the ads are in front of our faces 24/7… I’d LOVE to listen to the show using an embedded link… How hard can this be?

    suggs is a big gummed idiot. i’m glad the ravens lost because hes a jack. let’s see if ed reed, t suggs and whoever call out lee evans for blowin the game, nah prolly still flaccos fault. and no i’m not blaiming the kicker because they do not exist to me. i hate kickers and refuse to watch the game come down to a 12 yr old who has been makin sand castles for 2 and a half hrs

    #28…Poor Carson. What are you talking about? Palmer was the biggest thug on the team. He pulled a straight jack me, “trade me or I am going home”. Things are so much better for him now in all place, Oakland. That trade is best thing to happen to the Bengals. Oh yeah Bayless is a D-bag.

    Ravens players (esp. the defense) are all trash. Ray Lewis could easily be in jail right now. So glad the Pats put their asses out.

    41 The reason the Bengals are better is because there is no Chad Johnson or T.O to yell at Palmer all through the game, Palmer wanted to be traded because he was sick of them crying all the time.

    50.. The reason he wanted to be traded is b/c Mike Brown is an cheapass idiot with no desire to win. He knows that they will never be serious contenders as long as Mike Brown is the owner. They may create a perfect storm where they have a good season or two, but it will never be sustainable with Mike Brown at the helm. Palmer was at the age that if he didn’t get out now, he would be past his prime by the time he could play for anyone else. Unfortunately for him, he was out of the frying pan into the fire by going to Oakland. And I’m a Raiders and Bengals fan.
