Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Get excited for this season’s pregame show!

In a bit of evening news, we learn that our very own El Capitan Jones will be joining on the radio fun before the basketball games this year. I know Matt may not make a congratulatory post about  himself, but I’ll do it for him — Congrats to Matt on joining the UK IMG radio pregame show with the legendary Oscar Combs for this year’s basketball games. Matt is getting a lot of twitter love tonight for it, and it is all deserved.

If you are watching the former Cats in the NBA tonight, you know what it looks like to see people achieving their dreams. For Matt (and many of us), he surely dreamed to one day be involved with UK basketball. Thanks to this site, his work, and the inexplicable phenomenon of KSR, he’s gotten a chance to live the dream.

Make sure to tune into the pregame radio show this year. And tune into TNT right now to see if Jorts pegs Jared Sullinger with the ball at some point during tonight’s Heat vs. Celtics game.

As Oscar tweeted after Matt announced the news, Cawood himself will be smiling down on this bunch when they hit the airwaves.

    We are investigating a report of an alleged assault that occurred this year. Suspect Thomas Besiner could not be reached in reference to assaulting Matthew Tiberus Jones. Jones was said to have suffered a black eye.

    That’s awesome. Just killed a beer in honor. 9th honor I’ve given tonight. Wonder if Jones will be out tonight working on tomorrow’s hangover

    Congrats Matt. That is great. Hopefully you can afford to go somewhere better than Super Cuts now.

    By the way, Matt. I’ve been working beside Big Woo these past couple of weeks at the Ghent power station. I asked him when he was going to be on your show again. His reply, ” I work all time and never get a day off”.

    Great news and congrats to Matt. I don’t think I’ve missed a single podcast of KSR since the radio show started and it’s always enjoyable.

    I hope Oscar keeps him from being rude to callers and hanging up on them the way he does on the regular radio show. It’s getting harder and harder to listen to every day.

    Fat Tony is an idiot. The show is better than ever. Good luck Fat Tony. Chances are you choke on pizza, do us all a favor, and die.
