Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Are Pigs About to Fly?

 

 

I’ve been sick this week, y’all. Real sick. Averaging-two-crying-phone-calls-a-day-to-my-mom sick. So you’ll forgive me if, in my haze of antibiotics and prescription strength nasal spray, I saw the above screenshot on KSR and thought I was hallucinating until a solid twelve hours later.

 

I will fully cop to being a rather unoptimistic (very different from pessimistic) Kentucky football fan. Sure, I’ve been excited about Stoops and the new blood coming through, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see Kentucky land the number three recruiting class in the nation- with room to grow. In fact, there are many things I expected to see happen way before that. Such as…

 

Flying cars.

A DePaul University football BCS championship.

Matt Jones speechless.

Jose Canseco running for president.

Coach Calipari riding a Vespa (to be fair, I have yet to actually see this in person)

The Cubs winning a World Series

Brian Long appreciating something (fine art, perhaps)

LeBron James finally going completely bald

Seeing Linda from the Live Blog in real life (Linda? Are you out there?)

My mom at Bonnaroo

A girl wearing high-waisted jeans and actually looking decent

A Doron Lamb tweet that I don’t immediately retweet and favorite

A Gamecock beating a Commodore in an SEC Mascot fight to the death

Kyle Wiltjer running a 4.5 40 yard dash

Ally Tucker wearing a fedora

A line beard that I find attractive

An tentless line to get Big Blue Madness tickets

A Chicago winter without snow and/or wind that blows me over at least once

Billy Gillispie refusing to celebrate National Bourbon Day

 

Your turn.

    Can we all just take a minute to realize that this will not be the final ranking? All of the top 75 or so recruits have yet to commit and we’re not getting any of them. This is great don’t get me wrong but, by this time next summer we’ll be ranked anywhere from 18-30. That’s still a huge step in the right direction from the last staff but, let’s hold back our over the top elation until next April.

    9… How many 5 star recruits does UL have? That’s what I thought. Btw there are only 18 5 star recruits on rivals, so really it’s not even that big of a deal. Also, is UL currently ranked in the top ten in recruits? No… And they won’t ever be. You better hope your cards win this year, cause after this year, for the foreseeable future, UK will be the better program. All of you UL fans must come from the same dumb mom or something

    Reality… The reality is that this class WILL be ranked in AT LEAST the top 15 when it is all said and done. So get the stick outta your ass you dumb little biotch

    13, Why pee on the parade? I don’t get it. The first time in our football history we are making noise like never before. We aren’t naïve and we know we are a long way before the recruiting is over and hell we may fall out of the top 15-20. OK..we get that. But why analyze what the future will or won’t do in a period of happieness and excitement that has BBN (well most of BBN) on top of the world like never before.

    13… The reality is that 33 of the top 75 on rivals have already committed to a school. So I guess you’re wrong about that too. Fuggin moron. Do us all a favor and shoot yourself in the face

    I say like never before but I do understand the great success Bear Bryant had and I am not diminishing that. But most of us (even my old self) wasn’t around then and certainly the recruiting wasn’t like it is now.

    I just don’t get those who may not be trolls (Ya never really know) who want to try and bring stuff up that we all certainly know. It has to be one hell of a life to live like that. Debby-Downing all the time. weird.

    sorry you’d have to be a god d*** moron to think we’ll beat any 3 of these 5: tosu, nd, bama, lsu, texas this year.(that doesnt include mich, uf, usc, tenn, tamu) stoops is doing a phenomenal job, but let’s not pretend we’re getting the top 3 class. top 12-20 would be outstanding, and who knows about the future.
    i know you gotta post something/anything, but post hot chicks rather than this.

    The facts are 1) Stoops has gotten a lot of great players to “commit” to the 2014 class. 2) None of them have signed. 3) One kid “committed” then “decommitted” then “committed” again. 4) DerP is a loser that lives in his moms basement.
