    Love the UK football commercial as seen on WKYT. Was it on anywhere else? I am sure it was on WYMT. Glad to see Ray Lewis killed the lights during the 3Q.

    Who cares if it would have given the 49ers the first down and potentially the superbowl. The DB held him, and the ball was very catchable if he hadn’t held. Essentially what you just said is, “You can break the rules late in a very important game, but it won’t be called because the game shouldn’t be decided on a call.” WRONG. I do think Harbuagh pulled one out of the Joker playbook on the last posession. 1st and goal from the 5 and you throw the ball three times, after Kaepernick had torched the Ravens all night and all that drive…. Very poor play calling at the end, but the ref missed the call. In the end I don’t really care who won as a neutral and enjoyed a great game.

    Come on Matt…. Wiltjer wasn’t the only issue this team had. If you really want to pick on people, how about Archie/Harrow/Poythress giving us next to nothing in the second half? Or the lack of getting Noel the ball in the block? Or missing Wiltjer about 4 times for open 3’s?

    28-6 was the reason the Niners lost. There’s a reason the record for largest deficit to come back and win is 10. The comeback itself takes a lot out of you and most times you don’t have enough to finish the deal.

    I dare say a lot of people wouldn’t like to go to Keeneland, especially on really crowded days, so I think you’ll see a lot of people at the spring game that had no interest in being at Keeneland (i.e. families with children, old people, etc.)

    In the Air Raid your WR’s either have to be blazing fast and illusive in the open field OR big and strong enough to break tackles. So much of the “run game” is quick screens to get playmakers in space… and the only guy that could do that last year is Daryl Collins

    I wrote KSR last year about not covering UK men’s tennis and was told that no one cares. Matt gets this tennis jig and now tennis is relevant. This show revolves around Matt’s interest.

    Randle’s better, but as we’ve seen, experience matters. Poythress plays the Terrence Jones role on next year’s team.

    Of the guys left that are Well Know that Stoops is pursuing, here is how they break down POINTS wise:

    Jason Hatcher (5.8)- worth 105pts
    Tevin Lawson (5.8) – worth 105pts
    Ryan Timmons (5.7) – worth 90pts
    Corey Smith (5.7) – worth 90pts
    Jarran Reed (5.6) – worth 75pts

    Say the stars alligned and we got all of those we would jump to 14th.

    The most likey is we get 1 of Hatcher, Lawson, Reed and add Timmons and Smith… which would land us 19th

    not too bad

    People have been all over Poythress…. Mash is one of my favorite players at UK but Alex’s stats are not too far off of Mash’s Freshmane year stats. Why does Alex catch so much crap but Mashburn is looked upon as one of the best players to play at UK?

    Poythress
    12.8 pts/game
    61.4% FG %
    71 % FT
    6.5 Reb/game

    Was at the game and the cheers that the A&M fans did were long and awkward. They bend over hands on knees and then interlock arms and start swaying back and forth. But I must say the A&M fans were all super nice and treated us fans with class. Also remember the missed dunk? That would have won the game for A&M!!
