Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Forget Matt. Forget Drew. You’re Cool. EZ’s Out. (Show Thread)

bigez-half-baked

A chapter of Kentucky Sports Radio closes today as our friend Zach McCrite takes to the Louisville airwaves one final team before heading to St. Louis to spin Nelly tracks and take calls from people wondering whatever happened to Darius Miles.  Let’s take a temporary break from our hating to show him some love.  Or, honestly, you can hate him.  He’s gone after today anyway.

Here’s what we’ll be talking about today:

* Hate!  Hate!  Hate!

* SEC Tournament Implications

* Hate!  Hate!  Hate!

* Feud.

The comments game also continues this week and your participation in the comments’ section gives you a chance to win some money. Each day, the two best comments will be selected by Matt and Zach and placed into a weekly drawing for $200, courtesy of Fan Outfitters.

    The MVP this year is easily Billy G. Without him, we would not have Jorts this year and it is painfully obvious that once Billy G’s players are gone, Coach Cal will probably not win another game. All hope for a good future rides on the shoulders of 4loco

    I live in Nashville and they interviewed John Clay this morning on the radio. They asked him about the difference in Calipari and Billy G. He said this about Billy G. “Gillispie was shy. He was, well, he wasn’t ever really bad with the media…” Wait? WHAT? Seriously?

    Tennessee Sucks. EZ Rules. Can’t wait to cheer on the Cats in Knoxville Sunday.

    This year’s MVP has to be Bruce Pearl.

    In a year that has been frustrating for a UK fan, Bruce has consistantly put a smile on my face.

    Team MVP is Brandon Knight. The on the court results do not lie. When Knight is not on the floor we go backwards. When Harrellson has to sit we can still be productive on both ends of the floor when we go small. Yes, defense and rebounding could suffer, but that hasn’t come to fruition this season when Jorts was riding pine. If anything we were better going small than letting Vargas clog up the lane. I really don’t see any other option for a team MVP other than Brandon Knight.
