Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Being Satisfied About the Cats

The young gentleman above was a KSR follower on Twitter until this morning, when he tweeted to us:

Feeling pretty good about unfollowing @KySportsRadio, ready to follow my CATS w/o cheesy, annoying commentary from Matt Jones #BYE!LOSERDORK

For the man with the 2 dollar moustache, cocky head nod and pink wallpaper, annoying commentary from a dorky blogger is not acceptable and keeping up with the Cats in a cooler, more Ed Hardy fashion will make him much happier. Getting KSR commentary in the most ridiculous manner possible was not satisfactory, but now he has found inner peace.

I hope a similar peace can be found in the UK fanbase. After most games this season, there has been a feeling of discontent in the Big Blue Nation. I sense it most heavily on my postgame radio show, where callers usually take to dissecting the game by initially saying what the Cats did wrong and noting that if “they do that in March, we can’t win a title.” It isn’t that such observations are not true…they often are. But they are also incomplete and generally do not focus on what the team has done well. After the Arkansas game, the mood was much better, as the Cats had produced a complete effort, with no obvious letdowns. It might have been the best game the Cats have played since North Carolina, and fans treated it as such.

But unfortunately, that view has been an outlier for basically every game since Indiana. With six top players taking the majority of minutes, it seems that we all too often focus on the player that didn’t play well, rather than the ones that did. At various times this season, Marquis Teague, Terrence Jones and Darius Miller have all taken criticism, not necessarily for playing terribly, but just for not reaching the heights that their vaunted teammates have in a game. In some ways, it is the downside to having a team in which anyone of six players can lead you in scoring every night. While praising the one who ended up being the top point scorer, you then ask why the other five could not have done it as well.

At the beginning of the season, I thought it was very important for fans to “enjoy the ride” of what would be a special season. It has been different than what I initially expected as there have not been quite as many signature moments as we experienced in 2009-2010. But nevertheless, Kentucky is still 18-1, with the only loss coming on a buzzer beater in the most hostile environment I have ever experienced. Anthony Davis has set the all-time single season block record, MKG has become a fan favorite for all time and we have seen the development of maybe the best six man rotation in a decade. All of us, myself included, want this team to reach its next gear and become special…and there is nothing wrong with that. But it is important to remember that even if Kentucky hasn’t hit the turbo button to become other-worldly just yet, they still are damn good right now.

    What a dumbass. I can follow the Cats my own way. I can choose to read KSR or not read KSR. I can read some of what’s on KSR and not read other portions. I can follow on twitter or not follow. I can watch KSTV on or not watch KSTV. All for no additional cost over what I already pay for cellular data, cable tv and my broadband connection. I feel pretty comfortable following my Cats without Matt Jones but if he and the rest of the KSR crew are spending the time and effort to search out and share news on everything UK sports related so that I don’t have to… GREAT. Thanks guys (and gals) for making the information available for free in a manner that allows so many choices.

    Name the last team that was on top of it’s game for the entirety of the season? It’s not possible.. every team is going to peak at some point of the season, and play somewhere below that level for the majority. Would you rather have this team follow the path of the 2010-11 squad, or would you rather they follow a louisville-esque path, where you play your best ball in December?

    It’s guys or people in general like him that never get it, they never get the memo that they aren’t very smart, that they aren’t the man, they aren’t important, and that no one cares what they think especially when they pose like he is in that picture. The only thing he could have done dumber was put up his scissor gang mafia/peace sign. To the guy in the photo; here is your official memo of notification: you are a douche. Now go update your Facebook

    this site has been a huge source of negativity throughout this season. You can pin it on radio callers, but you guys have bashed this team and exemplified the dumb uk fan. Everyone was certainly worried about Teague, but you guys kill the team constantly. On the live blog for TN game Jones said within the first 10 minutes of the first half that he didnt see how UK could win the game. And lets not get into the criticism of TJ who has battled through an injury and rounding back into form.

    You guys did a great job in creating this site for UK fans, but you might need to step back and look at some of the stuff going on because you guys might have gotten a little too big for your britches

    In other news, Indiana losing again absolutely cracks me up.

    What’s all the fuss about? You may love the Cats and KSR but how can anyone argue if Matt Jones is a loser dork? I mean, come one, the guy is about the most annoying person ever. He always yells on the radio and TV, has no stage presence, provides “decent” analysis, is extremely touchy (meaning – he slams other writers/sites/reporters constantly, but gets his panties bunched if anyone says one word about him – uhhh… case in point above), was an ambulance chaser lawyer (nice job!) and went to Transy and Duke…. so this is the guy you all defend when it comes to Kentucky sports reporting? Really? I think more people should point out what a dork the guy is….

    Wow Matt, the sad thing is posting this says more about you than it does him. Not to mention he probably has more friends in Lexington than you and I’m sure they will no longer be reading your blog. Good call trying to embarrass and ridicule the very people who put you in the position you are in today. You are obviously a genius. You must be proud.

    Anyway, Matt, I love the site and the radio show (never seen the TV show because I live out of state), but you should be above posting peoples’ pictures just to call them out, no matter how lame or mean or stupid their comments about you are. Ultimately, their comments are inconsequential. The popularity of KSR as a whole proves that. When you put yourself in the public eye, not everyone is going to like you. Such is life and you should know by now that haters gon’ hate. F ’em!

    #102, Petty — Tom Petty or Richard Petty? The guy looks a little like Tom Petty. But Richard has a ‘stache.

    Matt, isn’t that your duke law school buddy Tucker Max?

    I know the guy in the photo, and his tweet is not surprising. He’s a douchebag on a daily basis. He also thinks he is way important than he really is, which is why we generally laugh at him behind his back.

    Keepin’ it Real – Why don’t you do what your name says and laugh at him to his face?

    I bet he’d stuff your face so full of junk that you couldn’t laugh without choking on teste.

    Interesting that “keepin’ it Real” posts anonymously and admits that he laughs at people behind their back rather than face another person. I don’t even know the kid in the picture, I just love a good wuss when I see one. Yes, Keepin’ it Real, John Tummelson called you a “wuss.” I might be worried, but there is no way you’ll ever do anything except hide behind a moniker on a blog.

    While you sad homophobes are busy reading this blog and all related comments, Duke fans (and joey too) are running through Lex-town charming all your ladies. Suck on them apples!

    Yeah what Byers said (minus the duke fans part). I bet Keepin it Real hasn’t kept it real a day in his life

    Dude, if you thought he was cheesy and annoying, why did you start following KSR in the first place? For the record, I love the radio show and try to listen to it on podcast every afternoon/evening. I don’t agree with every single thing Jones says, but most of the time he is on-target. By the way, being aware that the guys on this team are KIDS and are destined to make mistakes is not equal to “accepting mediocrity”.

    #117 I’d never heard of Matt Jones before I saw this and never listened to his show. Doesn’t look like he has much to say. Transy and Duke law grad. who does nothing but blog and talk shit? Not a perspective I care to hear.
    UK fans are alright with some mistakes but we’re going to need a championship or hope of one on a regular basis. Matt Jones’ telling people to calm down is a moot point. The discontent he’s talking about is nothing new. How recently did you become a fan?

    Smooth. The whole point is: Doesn’t Matt Jones have better things to do with his time and this forum than put a former listener out to a bunch of rednecks to make fun of a picture he got on Twitter? Doesn’t he have a job to do?

    Dude’s got junk for days… Nothing wrong with that.
    Seriously, it’s the new millenium let’s chill with the homophobia. A little bromance here and there never hurt anyone

    @#118 (Uncle TT)

    I’ve been a UK fan for more than half my life, and I’m not that young. Expectations for UK basketball have always been high, and they always will be. But sometimes, for whatever reason, things don’t pan out despite having all of the top players in your fold. There have been MANY times where the best team in the nation didn’t even make it to the Final Four. There are a lot of future pros on this squad, but fans want it to be 1996 all over again and it simply isn’t going to happen. Yet they are still 18-1, #2 in the country, and a strong bet for a #1 seed. As Jones said, let’s enjoy the ride and see where it takes us.

    As for the Twitter war, in my view the guy in the picture instigated it. If you start something, don’t be surprised when you experience retaliation. I don’t fault Jones whatsoever.

    Eff that. Let’s get a championship.

    You and Matt Jones remind me of school on a Sunday.
