    As a Cleveland Browns fan, I am excited about Noel possibly going to Cleveland… although the reason I am a Browns fan is because they drafted a UK player 1st in 1999… I hope this works out a little differently. Can’t wait for the show on Friday, I just hope we get The Truth to call in to talk to Charles Ramsey…or that Charles reveals he, Dave, and Kige are cousins.

    Hey Matthew Jones! How awesome would it have been to have Charles Ramsey as the Cleveland representative last night during the NBA Lottery?

    Also, do you think Charles Ramsey has anything to do with the Cavs winning the rights to draft Nerlens #1?

    Looking forward to hearing your answer!

    OK, so I gave football stats that compared Joker to Mark Stoops recruiting wise that were misleading. The rivals rating system changed in 2012 so the results were skewed. I did update them according to the new system though and here is how it broke down:

    2009 — UK totaled 1500pts (41st ranked)
    2010 — UK totaled 1455pts (50th ranked)
    2011- UK totaled 1500 pts (61st ranked)
    2012- UK totaled 1410pts (62nd ranked)

    In this span of time UK’s avg star rating was never above 3. Joker had a total of 9 four star players. Of 80 players over the span of those years the majority of the class was at a rivals 5.5 rating or lower (Scale is 5.2 — 6.1) so the lower half of the rating scale. Out of 80 players, 68 of them were at that level or below, a whopping 85%.

    2013 — When Stoops took over UK’s Class was 72nd in team rankings. They are now 29th. Average star rating of 3.05. 3 four star players. OF that 1 class, 15 of the 20 players that count towards the rating system were a rivals rating of 5.6 or higher.

    2014- UK with who they have now has 727pts. (16th in the nation)(Avg Star 3.43)

    UK with Edwards, West and Kief- 1043pts (tied for 7th +or- 1)(Avg Star 3.5)

    UK with Elam, Berrios and Ware — 1358pts with 7 more spots that are allowed in the rivals ranking system. ( Right now that’s good for 3rd in the nation but more teams will add more players too) (Avg star 3.53).

    With just those guys, Stoops will have totaled 10 four star players in 2 years, cracked the top 30 with a strong possibility of cracking the top 15 in 2014. PLUS HE STILL HAS 7 SPOTS TO FILL WITH POINTS. Say he only gets 3-star players for those next 7 spots. That’s nearly 600 more points which would put us at 1958 total points. In 2012 1958 was good enough for the 15th best class in the nation.I still think UK gets a couple more 4 star guys which can push it to around 2100pts which was good enough to be just outside the top 10.

    WTF WAS JOKER DOING WHILE HE WAS HERE????

    Dan Gilbert’s son at the lottery is getting a little gimmicky and annoying, but I’m not sure I’d go on calling him a twerp and say he gets beat up at school all the time, especially given his condition.

    Matt, you’re gonna get slammed on the Nick Gilber comments.

    He has Neurofibromatosis and it causes tumors to come up all over his body. He’s had surgery that has cost him part of his vision and he’s been through Chemo a few times.

    I can’t tell if he is a little a$$hole on top of that, or if he is just off because of all of the medical issues.

    I follow the NBA plenty… Lebron isn’t going back to the cavs.

    He may leave Miami, but not for the Heat. He hates the owner and trashed him publicly when he left and he still has a pretty bad taste in his mouth from watching fans burn his jersey on ESPN

    The only people saying he’ll go back to the cavs are people who think he will leave Miami and have zero imagination in regards to possible destinations.

    The draft is rigged. Last year the nba took owner of the New Orleans hornets last year and miraculously they get the #1 pick weeks after they found a buyer. And now more lebron pitty. They give them the number 1’pick the year after the decision and another 2 years later. The team with the best odds has only won 3 times in 20+ years

    Here u go Matt..
    It’s actually a neat little story, as Gilbert’s son Nick will be in Secaucus next week to see if he can bring Cleveland some badly-needed luck. The Akron Beacon Journal reports: “Nick Gilbert, the 14-year-old son of Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, will represent the Cavs on stage at the NBA Draft lottery Tuesday in Secaucus, N.J. Nick is the 2011 National Children’s Tumor Foundation Ambassador. The CTF is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of more than one in 3,000 children born with Neurofibromatosis, a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body at any time. Nick was born with NF and has endured brain surgery, the loss of vision in one eye and four rounds of chemotherapy. ‘We talk a lot about heroes in sports, but sometimes we overlook the heroes that are in front of us every day,’ Dan Gilbert said. ‘Nick has never complained a single time about the bad card he was dealt, and instead, chooses to focus on all that is good and exciting around him. He is an example of perseverance, determination and life the way it should be lived. Nick is my personal hero.’ Next Tuesday is also NF Awareness Day. Fans can donate $10 to support the fight against NF by texting CTF to 20222. The Cavs and Dan Gilbert will match dollar for dollar all funds raised for CTF from now through the lottery.”

    IF Lebron leaves the Heat when his contract is up, he’s not going to go back to Cleveland after everything that happened when he left.

    If he leaves, he will go to the place that gives him the best chance to win more titles. Why not go to a place like the Clips, or the Knicks, or a place like that that should have good players for a while and still be good in 2 years. Heck, could you imagine if he teamed up with OKC? My God, they could own the NBA for 10 years with Durant, Lebron, and Westbrook.

    Against us tyranny’s
    Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)
    In the countryside, do you hear
    The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
    They come right to our arms
    To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!

    Matt are you being serious with the Anthem talk? I thought you were smarter than this…

    The flag represents the country. The song/poem is about a fort being shelled mercilessly but during each explosion the light showed that our flag was still there waving proudly and it inspired all who saw it. It represents that no matter what happens the flag/America and all they represent will survive.

    Using the opinion of the words being hard to understand or saying it is outdated as reasons to change it is completely unfounded. Shakespeare is hard to understand and the language is outdated. Should we stop teaching it in favor of a book by Larry the cable guy because its easier to read and people can relate to it more? Of course not. How about we challenge people to think instead of discarding our past.

    You’re very smart so I’m a little lost as to your opinion on this matter

    114 how so? There are countless things that we know exists, which couldn’t be proved hundreds of years ago. By that logic, they were all statistically improbable. And how is it any more statistically probable that the universe came from nothing. Science says matter can’t be created or destroyed does it not? Same problem for both, either God or the universe came from nothing.

    Random question about transfers: Under what authority can a coach or a school keep a player from transferring from one school to certain other schools? You hear about players being prevented from transferring to schools within the same conference or on their old school’s schedule. Where does their old school get this power? Does it have to do with signing the scholarship for the next year? Does this have something to do with the distinction between single year and multi-year scholarships?

    Mike- What was statistically improbable hundreds of years ago that we now know exists? It’s improbable simply because its such a remarkable claim. We know life on earth was improbable and required the accidental binding of certain self replicating molecules. Since god would necessarily be more complex than earthly life, we can assume the existence of such a complex entity would be more improbable than life on earth. And you should read Lawrence krauss’s book “why there is something rather than nothing.” Empty space is demonstrably unstable and can spontaneously create particulate matter.

    Stanville KY is the home of former Wildcat basketballer Dan Hall. In fact the Eric C Conn law office is within ‘spittin’ distance from his childhood home.

    For all athiests, if I am wrong for knowing GOD exists, so what? What if you are wrong????? I hope you like BIG CAMPFIRES, you know, when you are the marshmellow. “EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, EVERY TOUNGUE WILL CONFESS, THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!!! It is in history books that Jesus is real! Why would you not believe? I would really hate to live life thinking that people were the most intelligent beings in the universe. How sad… humans are terrible by nature… I guess it is really an awful concept for athiests, it would be horrible to teach people not to kill, steal, cheat, and lie. You have seen what has happened first hand when prayer is taken out of school…

    I’m still angry with the city of Cleveland for their gross mishandling of Tom Couch. If he ever even had a competent O Line I’m sure he would have been UK’s first QB star in the NFL. If the Cabs ruin Nerlens, I will forever hold a grudge against the city. Petty? Maybe
