    Tonight is the last episode of The Office…I’m going to miss that show! Matt ask Cal if that post on his website about Bob Wiggins a few weeks ago had anything to do with Andrew.

    Yay! Coach Cal time! Ask him what would he do for 12 hour law free? I have a feeling he would stay in Orange Leaf for 12 hours or maybe at Boones Butcher Shop.

    I would sneak in to the new UK’s locker room.

    Matt, it was the 28ft club. They went to Breathitt High School.



  12. Dante Exum
    10:08 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Can you ask call if Exum is a target? He can discuss international recruits per NCAA rules.

  14. The Real JD

    22ft club, Sorry. The school system wouldnt let them play in the coliseum so they are now going to Wolfe County Schools now, I think.

    My uncle is a superintendent there in Jackson at Jackson City… There isn’t an academy there that I am aware of. Hazel Green Academy?

    10:11 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Matt, one time you said something about how you wish you could manage the clock for coaches at the end of a game…your recent struggles with time management might keep you from getting that job.



  17. Dante Exum
    10:11 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Dante Exum could join the team in December per NCAA rules.

    Matt, question(s) for Cal:

    How would a Julius Randle (in raw form right now) play against a MKG level defender? Would he hold his own or does he have great strides to make?

    Just trying to guage where Randle is at.



  23. Gus Chiggins
    10:12 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Question for Cal: What is the one thing he would do differently last year if given another chance?

    Coach Cal coming up right after this commercial break:

    (20 mins of AA commercials)

    Thanks Cal it’s been great to have you on the show.

  25. Egg white McMuffin? No thank you. Even the book of Job says egg white has no flavor.

  28. The Real JD
    10:13 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Nah, no academy. It was a private donor paying Breathitt school system to let these kids come to school in the US. The president of the “club” got mad when the school system wouldn’t let them play in the schools coliseum so, last time I heard they were going to school in Wolfe County.

    Probably a lot of that had to do with the state coming in and running the administration in Breathitt Co.



  29. bluemanchew

    everything in moderation even egg whites



  30. IMPORTANT QUESTION

    Hypothetically, If Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor choose Duke and Sulaimon / Jabari stay another year…… Duke’s lineup of Tyus, Sulaimon, Jabari, Amile, Jahlil will sound like a starting lineup for Al Qaeda? lol

  33. Captain Wildcat

    Matt, James Young will be starting at the 3, Alex will be backing up him or Randle.



  34. Jack Nicklaus
    10:16 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    I believe James Young will start over Poythress. Young has that dog in him.



  35. CATS
    10:17 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    Ask Coach Cal about WIllie playing the three in the Andy Katz article. Was that a mistake or a real possibility? WCS, Randle, and Dakari is a huge frontcout…

  44. Captain Wildcat

    Matt, can you ask Coach Cal, Do you still watch games and coaches and try to learn new plays and ways to do things?



  45. Kidnut
    10:20 am May 16, 2013 Permalink

    I bought the Deep Blue Something CD because of that song. I was listening to the CD one day and realized how bad it was and threw it away. The only other CD I did that to was The Escape Club Wild Wild West.

    This show should play in English classes all over the state just so kids can hear Slap Nuts. That way they can see why you need to pay attention in class.

    I see that Matt’s hometown radio station delays his show for about 10 hours. They know him there, so they must need that time for fact checking.
