Greg Stumbo to call in (Wednesday Show Thread)

Good morning, friends.  You look tired.  Are you okay?  You shouldn’t stay up so late on a Tuesday night, especially with a big KSR radio show on Wednesday.  Today, Matt will talk to Kentucky Speaker of the House Greg Stumbo about a negative comment he made about the UK football team a few weeks ago.  He’ll have the chance to make it right.

Plus, the gang will talk football recruiting and basketball improvements.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or send a text to the TEXTING MACHINE at (317) 385-5148

    If I was a betting man I would put $100 bucks that the first “new” commitment that UK will get will be from a four-star prospect that is 5’10-175lb WR/DB/ATH out of Houston, Texas. His name is Devin Lauderdale. He was committed to Texas Tech and recruited by Chad Scott. He other top schools were Tennessee and FSU. The main recruiter of him at both of those schools was DJ Eliot and Hinshaw for Tenn. I really like the kid. VERY FAST, but VERY PHYSICAL on defense. Here is a link for highlights, he lays the wood when he plays DB. I love it!

    USC in their latest recruiting podcast has said that they are losing the interest of Jason Hatcher because of the recent developments with Carl Lawson who has backed out of his committ with Auburn and is a USC lean.

    Two accounts, published in the 1640s, one in Spanish, one in Nahuatl, tell how, while walking from his village to Mexico City in the early morning of December 9, 1531 (then the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in the Spanish Empire), the peasant Juan Diego saw on the slopes of the Hill of Tepeyac a vision of a girl of fifteen or sixteen years of age, surrounded by light. Speaking to him in Nahuatl, the local language, she asked that a church be built at that site, in her honor; from her words, Juan Diego recognized the
    Our Lady of Guadalupe:

    Lady as the Virgin Mary. Diego told his story to the Spanish Archbishop, Fray Juan de Zumárraga, who instructed him to return to Tepeyac Hill, and ask the lady for a miraculous sign to prove her identity. The Virgin told Juan Diego to gather flowers from the top of Tepeyac Hill. Although December was very late in the growing season for flowers to bloom, Juan Diego found at the usually barren hilltop Castilian roses, not native to Mexico, which the Virgin arranged in his peasant tilma cloak. When Juan Diego opened the cloak before Bishop Zumárraga on December 12, the flowers fell to the floor, and in their place was the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, miraculously imprinted on the fabric.

    The icon is now displayed in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, one of the most visited Marian shrines. The icon is Mexico’s most popular religious and cultural image, bearing the titles: the Queen of Mexico, and was once proclaimed Patroness of the Philippines (but later revised) by Pope Pius XI in 1935. In 1999, Pope John Paul II proclaimed the Virgin Mary Patroness of the Americas, Empress of Latin America, and Protectress of Unborn Children under this Marian title.

    Nothing funny about having Bracketology now. It’s funny in June, it’s reasonable in mid-December. I think most people have a good handle on what teams are good, what teams have a chance to be good, and what teams do not. Three of the 1-seeds are pretty clear: Indiana/Louisville/Duke. I think Florida will be the fourth No. 1 seed unless Kentucky improves a good deal.

    Best Case- (ACCORDING TO RIVALS)
    UK ends the 2013 class with these ranked players– 1,2,4,5,10,12,18

    Worst Case the rankings are – 4,5,10,12,18

    Probable- 1,4,5,10,13,18

    However, Dave Telep and Eric Bossi are predicting Marcus Lee (18) to earn a 5th star in all rankings and take Chris Walkers spot at (8). Also Eric Bossi said James Young is on pace to jump 3 spots.

    So IF that happens, UK’s class could be this: 1,4,5,7,8,12…. Thats stupid!

    Noel certainly gets an A. He hasn’t been perfect, but he has been pretty good and he plays harder than anybody in the nation.

  162. Delk for 3
    11:16 am December 12, 2012 Permalink

    Julius Mays does not deserve an A. We need him to score and he hasn’t scored more than 16 points in any one game — and that was the Notre Dame game in which he hit a bunch of threes late in the game when it didn’t even matter. He scored 6 vs. Baylor, and 7 in both the Duke and Maryland games. He is shooting a decent 37 percent from behind the arc, but we need more out of him. He has done okay but he needs to be more of a scorer. Point blank. Period.



  163. 8&Counting

If the expectation is that he would not play much going into the season then YES he did play way above expecations in the Maryland game… Since then, you cannot say he played below expecations if he was not expected to contribute much. He is playing AT expectations…. Not worse

    We are fine people. Here is my thing, to me, Harrow is still in the dog house for leaving the team, but he has been improving steadily. I firmly believe once Cal puts Harrow as the starting PG things will fall into place. Cal is just trying to make a point to Harrow, and he is getting through judging by how much Harrow is improving and how much more time he is spending in the gym.

    I think some people need to break out replays of games from December last year. Everyone absolutely HATED Terrence Jones, especially after the Indiana game. There was talk that he had some sort of mental issue and Cal had no clue how to deal with him.

    I’m still glad Tubby screenshotted that one SnapChat from Randolph Morris about returning.

    Wiltjer gets a C so far. He started of a high B, but because of his defensive liability you cant give him an A. With his offensive game struggling, his grade drops because he doesn’t pick it up on defense. Mays was kind of an unexpected bonus so he gets a B+. Steve gets an F, cause he is just negative.

    I’m not worried about this team. I think we got a decent team and a team that is hard to beat. We may not be a dominating team, but we are a competitive team that is only going to keep getting tougher and tougher.

    It is really easy to look at this team and see they are not last years team, but did anyone in BBN really think that they would be? NO. I look at my screen saver on my computer everyday that says were were the ncaa basketball champions and I enjoy that for the rest of the day. I am also surrounded by UL fans and IU fans at work everyday. when they start gloating about their teams this year all I do is point to my screen saver and they shut up. I also point out that the title last year was probably the sweetest we ever had because we beat our two greatest rivals to get it. Go Big Blue. Still basking in the glory of last year.

    #225, I have a friend who has actually been in K’s locker room. If you think he doesn’t yell and belittle, think again. My friend told me that once K was so displeased with a 1st half, that his opening remarks to the team upon storming in the locker room was “F___ you.”
