Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Did UofL fans listen to Strong’s advice?

That’s quite a nice blue shirt, Chuck

In early December, Louisville’s head football coach Charlie Strong was the center of a ton of controversy. For one, Strong told UofL fans that they needed to be more like UK fans:

“Kentucky can travel with the Big Blue Nation, they go take over. We should have that same passion here.”

This struck a chord with Card Nation State City Neighborhood (I kid, I kid). The best thing to happen to their football program since Brian Brohm goes public saying that the Cardinal faithful aren’t faithful enough, and that they need to take some notes from their hated brothers in blue. If there is one group of people that UofL fans claim they are ‘so different’ from, it would be us Cat fans.

Next thing you know, Coach Strong is rumored to be taken the Tennessee coaching position. The bird-lovers probably felt slighted and disrespected after his recent comments and worried that Strong would leave them high and dry. However, ol’ Chuck metaphorically bent over the entire UofL administration and had his way with them – he played his cards (no pun intended) better than anyone has in a while, and got absolutely PAID for it. I can’t blame him, as capitalism and the cut-throat sporting world force people to strike when the iron is hot and get their money while they still can. I applaud him for that, but also understand the fans’ perspective.

The point of this rambling is this: Recent events show that UofL fans may have truly taken Strong’s advice to heart and are trying to be more like UK fans. Big Blue Nation does set the example nationally, but you won’t find a Louisville fan who will admit that they need to be just like Cat fans – but after their coach said they ought to mimic us, there has been a newfound enthusiasm and excitement about the Cardinal lovers. Here are a few examples:

– After keeping Strong and joining the ACC, UofL fans have amped up their football excitement and embraced the idea of supporting your conference, as we do with the SEC. To be fair, it was pretty hard to get excited about Big East football.

– I did some tactical espionage with friends this past week in New Orleans (aka taking advantage of no open container laws), and I witnessed UofL fans totally outnumbers Florida fans in NOLA. However, they were also much bigger a-holes than the Florida fans.

– Yesterday, James Quick committed to Louisville and he was quickly trending worldwide. Well played, Cards fans. I’ll give you that.

This fall/winter has been to good to the red and black team. Combined with the UK basketball loss to UofL (damnit, that still stings), this all could be construed as signs of the apocalypse. Or at least evidence that we’ve moved into a parallel universe.

All in all, having both fanbases being as passionate as possible is great for the for college sports and for the commonwealth as a whole. I’d like to thank the Cards fans for realizing that Chuck was right – you need to be more like UK fans. So don’t get this post twisted:  I don’t mean to make this seem too nice or congratulatory – just to remind everyone that “imitation is the highest form of flattery.”

    New low. Why write this? Please don’t write anymore. I’d rather go without a post than to see this. They want to be like us. There coaches want them to be like us. They just had the lowest attended BCS game in the history of the BCS, and they had to have Papa Johns pay for tickets to get those fans down there.

    You are falling into their trap, you celebrate mediocrity. We have 3 receivers rated higher than Quick on their short list. We just got an outstanding 4-star corner back. And remember, we have a ton of fans in their arena when we play them. Please don’t write again.

    You guys tried as hard as you could to not mention the most newsworthy sporting event for the whole state of Kentucky (UofL’s sugar bowl win) so they wouldn’t get the satisfaction of acknowledgement, but try as you may you can’t help but be obsessed with the fact that your “little brother” has grown up into the more successful one in the family

    #6 what r u talking about? Ever hear a bird in the hand beats 2 in the bush? Talk to me when a kid rated ahead of quick actually commits to uk. Who cares if 25 5 star receivers have uk “on their short list”? Absurd.
    #20 hate to say it, but uofl has a more certain bright fb future than uk. Yes, we r looking better with a new coach, but still. Uofl not belonging in the sugar bowl is irrelevant. They stomped a team uk has barely even competed with for 25+ years. I rooted for FL (ugh), but all credit to the cards. Anybody denying they would trade fb programs with them right now is in, well, denial.

Like I said should these 2 teams play in march Louisville will be brought back down to reality. Life would probably be easier If you accepted louis upped place as forever being number 2 rather than hold out hope that you can somehow pass UK. Oh and once again congrats on winning the football big east, that schedule was especially grueling lol

    31 I don’t like this article either and am also upset with the quality of writing as of late, but you are a poor excuse for a human being and a waste of sperm. Using the term “retard” illustrates just how stupid you really are. I also find your questioning of people’s intelligence as ironic, as you have a hard time producing a coherent sentence. I also find your claim that you shit 80% of the UK fan base as unbelievable. I usually don’t condone drinking and driving down a windy road, but please do!

    Look, I am huge UK fan… But this post is absolutely stupid and unecessary. This makes the writer look jealous, almost a desperate attempt at trying to turn UL success into a negative. They won a game, they traveled well….good for them. For the writer to try and turn this into a “UK thing” is absolutely ridiculous. I love my Wildcats, and I look forward to where Stoops is guiding us. But really, to post what you did is narcissistic and dumb. UK fans are better than this. Quit trying to plague on what others are doing and stick to UK business, this post made US look desperate for validation.

    Apocolyptic? More like an alignment of planets. UL was able to beat a team with 1 player with UK/UL rivalry experience and true freshman, by 3 pts. They then played a team that thought all they had to do was show up in town to win, and beat them. To say they are the greatest thing since sliced bread is going a little to far. UL should be counting their lucky stars.

    Looks like the writer of this article (Chris Thomas) just needed something to “jab” at the Cards since he probably can’t stand that they just won the Sugar Bowl and beat an SEC foe in the process. Sounds like a little jealously Mr. Thomas. It’s kind of sad when you have to toot your horn about the UK fan base because you certainly can’t do it for the football team itself. Just give the Cards credit and move on.

    Since the 80’s, UK and U of L both have 1 win against Florida (U of L has played UF 3 times during this period)……Meanwhile, UK has 31 losses to UF…… for a winning percentage of just above .03…again 3%……as in UK would win three out of one hundred games against Florida.

    ha ha 87…difference was U of L was playing in a minor league baseball stadium as an independent with no support….. while UK was reaping SEC riches, as the state flagship school and 10x better facilities….. with not a thing to show for it. U of L “moves up” into the mighty C-USA–and is competitive with the Wildcats of the mighty SEC. Cards move into Big East and finally get some semblance of resources and a stadium while UK reaps the SEC $$ and exposure with 0 to show for it.

    Now that U of L is in the ACC (and we are finally on an almost level-playing field) and Strong is bringing in the studs, we will have fond memories of you guys…..in our rear-view mirror. Just a matter of time before Mitch cancels the series……..

    Personally, I don’t see the problem with a pat on the back, letting UofL fans enjoy a little taste of success. Lord knows they’ve had plenty of disappointments over the years in both sports. At least we have basketball as a consistent winner.

    #90 agree w some if what u say but also realize that we are the northern most school in the toughest conf year in and out of football and where the most prized recruits come from the states of our rivals in confrence. Just as the case w Quick and Couch and bush and brohm its hard to get guys like that to leave thier home state even if the instate school is not great, with that being said these southern states such as georgia and fl produce prob 20 or 30 times the amount of primere athletes as our state. Last year UL had one of its best classes in history ranking 31st in the nation, good for 1st in the big east that class would have been only better than 2 teams in the SEC, 6 of the top 10 schools were SEC and be willing to bet 90 percent of those guys came from the deep south, at the end of the day, with the excetion of a couple guys schools like UK and UL get the scraps from these states. Its hard to climb out, just as in basketball the programs that are dominant are the one s that always have, you get flashes in the pan but name the last school in either sport that hasnt been a powerhouse for over 30 years that is now

    Explain Stoops pulling several 4 stars in a month on the job? 😉 UK can compete. They just need a man in there to do the job.

    Maybe y’all have found him. Good luck!

    Matt could care less about the quality of the writing on KSR, as long as the sponsors $ keeps rolling in. Every good writer KSR has had is gone and has nothing positive to say about M.Jones (sans Drew Franklin)
