    i only wish he would have asked if the ncaa felt it was setting a dangerous precident by saying kids can accept all the inproper benefits they want as long as the source isn’t a “professional team”

    I heard when the camera turned off, Drew chased Olga down and got her number.

    36 – 3 year old what? Trolls don’t get laid. Therefore, you couldn’t possibly breed. Thank God for that.

    I would like see an investigation to determine if there is any connection between Euro Professional Basketball and the NCAA. Sometimes as they say you can “Just Follow the Money”!

    You guys have me confused. So, KSR, (this site) is hype for this tv channel?

    Somewhere there is the KSR post about how KSR would NEVER be about money.
    I enjoy the vids, but it confusing about what your principles are.
    Reminds me of a certain college sports org.

    Nice, really do appreciate KSR going to Indy and letting the NCAA know how the common Ky fan feels. Kudos to Drew Franklin. #40 MM quit being a fu_king hater.Get some balls and do something like this if not shut the f_ck up ,you smart ass prick!!!

    Has anyone noticed that Drew looks like a younger version of Mitch Barnhart?

    Nice first attempt, but please don’t consider it a success. Improve on it.

    I’m sorry. Could you have at least started this bit without Drew typing on a computer that isn’t even turned on. Where in the hell did you find that background music? Hopefully you didn’t pay for it. Is this some German avant garde bulls**t? If it is, I’ve seen it done better.

    /Last two sentences stolen from Patton Oswalt
    /you would have more money if you fired the video editor
    /use that money to buy “Yakety Sax” rights and have Drew run away from security .

    KSR- love the site and probably check it 10 x/ day. Having said that this enes Kanter situation has been taken well beyond far enough. Drop it guys, you are making all uk fans look weak, immature and more obsessed then we all are. Grow up and move on.

    ok the old man was defiantly a dick head, makes it look worse for the NCAA that they couldnt even talk to Drew in a nice way. THE NCAA BLOWS

    5:29 am January 21, 2011 Permalink

    The ncaa spokesman kept stressing that Enes was paid by a pro team. Didn’t matter that he was underage, just that he was paid by a pro. My question is this, if the $33k was above the ALLOWABLE limit, who paid the allowable part? Wasn’t that the pro team too?

    KSR,
    I thought it was great, typical KSR that we all love.
    To the complainers that it wasnt professsional,etc. If we had a newspaper that wasnt so anti UK fans and the attitude that all things wrong with Kentucky is caused by the basketball team , then maybe they could have done a follow up. I think it was wonderful Tipton didnt get the answer he wanted from Terence’s aunt. At least the low-life still printed it.

    10:15 am January 21, 2011 Permalink

    That actual interview was terrible. Just let them off the hook, why don’t you. What about asking them about why they changed the rules to begin with. It is not like UK just went to get a foreign pro player. The NCAA changed the rules and then came back and declared the first player to petition ineligible. I have not seen an answer to that

    26 and 65, you are both on the mark. They have set very dangerous precedents lately. Allowable and un-allowable expenses by a pro team? how does that make any sense? If it is more than allowable, return the rest. Before, if you hired an agent, you were not eligible. Now, if you get money from them, you are. BS!

    10:21 am January 21, 2011 Permalink

    Wow. Just got a mention on KSR! I love ya Matt, but you have to get some thicker skin. THIS IS TV man.

    You hyped this thing up and it wasn’t good. It wasn’t that funny, and good questions were not asked. I’m simply saying it was a good idea that wasn’t executed well.

    Cheers.

    The first guy that talked to Drew in the waiting area was a first class dirtbag. So arrogant. Why would a male secretary act like his poop doesn’t stink? I bet he takes it in the rear with zest.

    I also agree with Matt, that no one else has the guts to go to Indy and ask questions. Kudos for that.

    Guys enough of the bashing Drew already. He took a chance and it made for some very funny journalism. It took major stones to do what he did. You know what doesn’t take stones……sitting behind a computer and bashing a guy that’s just doing his job and adding something commendable to a free TV show and Internet site. If you want hard hitting journalism go watch CNN or Fox News. Better yet go get a life d-bags! Good job Drew keep up the good work!

    HEY DREW… I LIKE THE WAY YOU WENT INTO THE OFFICE’S OF THE NCAA TO GET SOME CLOSER ON THE ENES KANTER DECISION BUT, THE WAY YOU APPROUCH THE INTERVIEW WITH THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATION’S OF THE NCAA WAS A JOKE. YOU DIDN’T EVEN ASK HIM REAL QUESTION’S. ALL YOU DID WAS SMILE, AND PLAY WITH HIM LIKE YOU WANTED A DATE OR SOMETHING. YOU ARE A JOKE, DUDE….. AND THAT JACKET AND YOUR HAIR WAS RIDICULOUS. I WATCH CN2 KENTUCKY SPORTS TV EVERY WEEK NIGHT 7:00 AND I LOVE MATT JONES.. HE’S CRAZY!!! BUT, THEY NEED TO FIND SOMEONE ELSE WHO CAN CONDUCT HIM OR HERSELF AS A REAL FIELD REPORTER.
