    The Louisville moron said that Andre Woodson lost his first start 28-0 to Louisville? Get your facts straight jack-offs, that was the year Shane Boyd started. Woodson’s first start against UL was his soph. year and was at home and the game went down to the wire. Woodson fumbled the ball on the goaline with a chance to tie late in the game.

    The dude from the UL show is a moron. Get your facts straigh jackoff! He said Woodson’s first game he started against UL tha UL won 28-0? That game was started by Shane Boyd. Woodson’s first start against UL was at Commonwealth his Soph. year. That game UL was ranked highly pre-season and UK lost by 7. Woodson fumbled the ball on the goalline with a chance to tie late in the game. I believe that was the great Orange Bowl team that UL fans always refer to when they talk about their great football tradition!

    I don’t stop at rest stops because, at the first rest area coming in to Kentucky from TN, 3 years ago a guy was shot in the head, and then his car was set on fire. That’s why I will never stop at a rest area.

    I work at a Fairfield Inn and this happens all the time. I know it: they know it. Most times, people respect the facility but sometimes they trash the place pretty bad with diarehea. When that happens, the next ten or so pay the price with a “guest use only”.

    And just so you know, brothers figured that hotel bathroom thing way before whitey did. Just saying…

There’s a full time restroom attendant, live piano music piped in, and it’s spotless at all times. the only thing that would make it better would be if they moved the piano into the actual restroom and somehow gave you the ability to order food and make requests to the piano player…i’m not sure if i’d ever leave

There’s a full time restroom attendant, they pipe in live piano music, and it’s spotless. The only thing that would make it better would be if they moved the piano into the actual restroom and allowed you to make song requests.

    Matt, being a lawyer, you know that the relevant justifications for punishing the Kernel reporter under these circumstances are specific and general deterrance. Since no one (except the players he contacted) would have known that a rule had even been broken if Peevy had not unceremoniously disinvited him from the media event, what justification is there for the punishment? It wouldn’t generally deter anyone who didn’t know about it. Specific deterrance could have been accomplished by a private conversation.

I listen every day, but the days with Lemond co-hosting are the worst and I actually find myself turning off the radio because he is so off-putting. The worst part about Lemond is that he thinks he’s funny. He cracks himself up. But, his level of humor is that of a 3rd grader. No sophistication. No wit. He appeals only to the lowest level of humanity with poop and fart jokes. I would rather hear the LouisvilleHelpWanted.com spokeswoman sing on a loop than have to listen to this no talent a** clown.
