Buzz Baker and Kara Lawson to call tomorrow’s game

Our good friend Dave “Buzz” Baker will be calling tomorrow’s game against Auburn, with a little help from Kara Lawson.  The Baker/Lawson duo will be on the microphones for the SEC Network.  That’s WKYT, HD channel 912, on your Insight cable boxes.

Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

We’ll have notes from Cal’s pre-Auburn press conference in a few minutes.

    She may know basketball but, looking at her has ALWAYS made me shudder.

    good gawd. why do we have to listen to these women doing men’s bball games? they’re awful. i’d almost rather listen to fingernails on a blackboard, or even dookie vitale, or snark kellogg

    Women need to cover their own sports that no one watches.

    Kara is a big upgrade over Doris Burke.

    I like Kara. She knows her stuff. I would much rather listen to her than most of the “experts.”

    #4..Jim Tom…give the afternoon crowd a good moonshine story from back in the day.

    Women have no business commentating on major mens sports.

    So another game of no sound on the TV. Women can’t play basketball and no woman should be allowed to announce a men’s basketball game. I, for one, refuse to listen to them.

    Even as a liberated woman who would LOVE to be a color commentator for football & basketball games, I couldn’t agree more! I am just not a fan of female commentators. I like them interviewing coaches on sidelines & during halftime, etc. but female announcers calling games drives me insane, no matter how great their knowledge of the game is.

    I don’t mind Kara Lawson so much. At least she knows what she’s talking about and does her homework. I’ll take her over Doris Burke any day of the week. Besides, I can count the number of color commentators that i actually like on one hand, and one of them, Jay Bilas, is a damn dookie!

    Who cares? It’s the Cayts, ain’t it? Just watch it and enjoy all that is Cayts. People will complain about anything and everything.

    LSU just hired me as the OC. Kragthorpe didn’t work out?

    Who is the commentator who calls the backboard the banky board? He called a game with Joe Dean a few Saturdays ago. Maybe it was Joe Dean.

    Why can’t women stick to covering women sports? I am sorry but listening to female commentators do mens games is beyond annoying. Not saying they don’t know the game, just their terrible attempt at changing their voice to sound more manly is obscure. There is no way all women have that annoying fake deeper voice.

    People need to stop complaining, turn the sound off and listen to the UK basketball radio network while watching on TV. Been doing that since Cawood was calling it!

    #7 u just made me cry laughing. Well done

    I will be the commentator for free and I sound a lot better than kara

    Um, you don’t have to be hot to be a good female reporter, folks. We’re listening, not watching, anyway. I would take her over Doris Burke, Bobby Knight, Dan Jockitch, Jimmy Dykes, Bill Raftery, or even Dick Vitale in a heartbeat.

    Shouldnt she be cooking or something or like sweeping up? I like chics but just not calling the game. Actually i hate it when they do! I can barely watch the game. I think I will mute it.

    What kind of iron is that she’s holding?

    To Kara calling the game. This is UK Mens Basketball for godsake. This is not the wba, or womens team playing. I just do not understand it. I would rather buzz do the game by himself.

    10*bill, one time i had to take a quart over to beattyville. i’d never been there before so i stopped to ask an old man selling corn by the roadside. i said “son can you tell me how you get to beattyville?” he looked down the road, then to the other direction, and spit some ambere on the ground, then looked at me and said “well, sometimes, my brother he takes me.”

    I would actually rather listen to her than pompous ass Buzz Baker. If he was any fuller of himself, he would explode.

    Who cares, the Cats are playing…..just drink a little more beer and you wouldn’t care if Elmer Fudd was calling it

    Hey… At least she sounds like a man. were watching for UK basketball not her(or him) commentating.

    Though I do agree it is weird hearing her and Dorris try to sound like men when they speak

    What the hell is with the trend of women calling men’s games?! First Doris Burke and now this. They are not good. They don’t even measure up to Jimmy Dykes. Well, name-wise I guess they do.

    Reading these comments, I’m glad that my only link to the state of Kentucky is the university itself. The people are archaic backwoods fools!

    What 36 said….

    Also – 18 – Kragthorpe stepped down as LSU’s OC over a year ago because of a health issue (Parkinson’s, I believe). Last I heard he was still the QB coach.



  38. Go cats

    I don’t care what people think of it. I hate it when women do the games. It completely ruins them.

    Yes, you Goegia Cats fans are so very sophisticated and cultured. Dueling banjos much?

    Why are people acting like SHE is the weak link in that chain?

    no offense but female announcers do not do very good on mens basketball games. They either try to hard to show they know about the game and over analyze – or else they just don’t have the same type of personality needed for the mens’ game.

    I’ll pass. Baker’s just terrible and I don’t suffer listening to women call any sport.

    Looks like its wlap with muted tv again.

    Maybe if your team got it’s head out of its a**, you would have “better” people calling your games!
