    I bet I know why there aren’t many comments. It’s silly, but hear me out. You recently switched from putting the show link from iheartradio (which automatically opened in a new window) to this one which opens up in the KSR screen. If you don’t right click to open it in a new window, every time you submit a comment, the page refreshes and stops your radio streaming, so I bet people are hesitant to submit comments so they’re streaming isn’t interrupted. I know this could easily be remedied by opening the show stream in a new window/tab, but I bet this has something to do with the stunted comments recently.

    It’s because you are wrong Matt Jones, it was 8 grams. 8 ounces of weed would have got him a felony intent to distribute charge.

    11:35 am August 2, 2011 Permalink

    Matt, that’s what I have always thought about UK football. UK can’t line up and run a pro style offense and play a base 4-3 defense. They don’t have the talent to and the recruiting base to. For UK to succeed in football, they MUST think outside the box. Spread offense, attacking defense, go for it coaching decisions(not punting on 4th down vs UT), etc. That’s why my confidence in Joker is low. He coaches at UK, what does he have to lose? A BCS bid? The SEC title? There is no need to be conservative when you haven’t beat a team in 26 years.
