Hulk Hogan’s Sunday News and Views

August 11th may be just another day to you, but if you happen to be Hulk Hogan this day on the calendar happens to mark your 59th birthday.  On August 11th, 1953 in Augusta, Georgia, Hulk came into the world known as Terry Gene Bollea and was destined to be an American icon.  The son of Peter and Ruth Bollea, labeled as a 6′ 7”, 300 pound behemoth, took the world of wrestling by storm and is arguably the most famous wrestler of all time.  Hulk holds 12 individual world championships that include his 6 WWF/WWE Championships and 6 WCW World Heavyweight Titles.  Hogan was also the first man in history to win two consecutive Royal Rumbles, accomplishing that feat in 1990 and 1991.  He’s no stranger to the big screen or television either, appearing in Rocky III as “Thunderlips,” and also starring in his own reality TV show on VH1 “Hogan Knows Best.”  While his personal life took a turn for the worse when then wife, Linda, divorced him; he has since moved on, marrying girlfriend since 2008, Jennifer McDaniel in Clearwater, Florida.  “To all the little Hulkamaniacs, say your prayers, take your vitamins and you will never go wrong,” strong words Hulk, so in honor of you here are Sunday’s News and Views.  BROTHER!


-In a glacially paced news day there was little to report other than the first scrimmage of Kentucky’s Football team.  Today many questions were asked with the most pressing one being, who will be the Quarterback taking the first snaps under center in Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium?  Joker remained tight lipped on who the leader at the time was when he was quoted as saying he wants to “hold judgement” until he analyzes the film of the game, but he did say there was “more good than bad.” from the four potential candidates.  Speaking of lips, can someone please get the Offensive Coordinator, Randy Sanders, a can of Cope?  Anyway, Sanders did not say definitively who the leader was, but through his comments you could make out that Maxwell Smith is the current leader in that department.  The order at this time would be Smith, Newton, and a tie for third with the incoming freshmen, Towles and Whitlow.

-In other news from the scrimmage, Sophomore Safety Glenn Faulkner is out with an alleged high-ankle sprain.  There is no word on the severity of the injury or a timetable for return, but those three words are some of the scariest in the sports world.  Get well soon, Glenn.

-La’Rod King caught a long touchdown pass today, cementing his place as the top Wide Receiver.

-The Quarterbacks threw two interceptions today, one of which resulted in a pick six.  Depending on how you view this it could either be good or bad.  I choose to view it as a positive given the youth on the defensive side.  Rick Minter has proven year after year that his teams will force interceptions (Trevathan didn’t have a single pick until Minter arrived), which could be this defense’s strength.  Can Kentucky finish in back-to-back top-10’s in Interception Percentage?  It remains to be seen, but the potential is there.

-John Wall played some video games for the opening of a Microsoft Store in Washington D.C.

Has anyone gotten Sanders that Copenhagen yet?

-Horran Cameron of (Bobcats site) has an excellent write up on how Michael Kidd-GIlchrist has already become the leader of the franchise.

-David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune tells everybody what Kentucky fans already know.  Anthony Davis is having a dream year.

-Finally, I leave you with this.  Wayne Winston is a jumble of George Washington’s wooden teeth famous statistician/author who teaches at Indiana University.  In addition to loving numbers he also loves sports, Indiana sports specifically.  While he’s good with numbers, he’s terrible with bias.  After Kentucky’s Final Four game with Louisville he took to Twitter and proclaimed that Louisville had the “heart of a champion” and Kentucky “has the refs anda non hustling bunch of players.”  Not only was he wrong on both accounts, he also proved that he has a very basic understanding of the English language.  In the words of the Good Job! Good Effort! kid, “GOOD JOB! GOOD EFFORT!


How do you feel about that BBN?

    Am I the only one sick of ksr accusing every media personality of being biased. That has to be the most overused word on this website.

    Dave, lighten up.

    And that’s the way it was.

    Although 2 picks doesn’t sound good, Joker said the team took 140 snaps during the scrimmage today. As an example we ran 74 offensive plays against UL last year. I did read at some other sites that the ball was put on the ground several times today. That’s something that we simply can’t have if we want to be successful this year.

    Really? You care about what so no-name IU fan thought over four months ago? This guy give you a bad grade once did he? Pick your battles and maybe try writing something relevant next time.

    Saw ‘ole Hulk while he was shooting a commercial at my hotel in Clearwater a month ago. He is in BAD shape. Dude couldn’t beat an 80 year old lady in a 50 foot race. He walked like an old pirate, step, drag, step, drag, step…

    take a break……Jonathan.

    Your sentence begining with “While his personal life…..” should not have a semicolon; it should have a comma.

    A semicolon is used in order to separate two sentences.

    I’m just one of the asses, trying to educate the masses.

    11- Anyway Hulk ends up on your menu? I can see the ad now, new KFC Hulk Bites.

    I will say this, Hulk never met a tanning bed that he didn’t like. Hulk’s melanoma has skin cancer, yeah it’s that bad.

    Professor Winston is a savant – brilliant, but as bizarre and odd as you would expect for a statistics-crazed dude who has won Jeopardy three times. He is friends with Mark Cuban, ran a lot of diagnostics for him the year the Mavericks won the championship – similar to Moneyball. I know the guy … hate that he loves IU basketball more than anything other than statistics, but it is what it is.

    How do we feel about that? Listen, if you are going to try and rile up BBN, then at least use information that was not put out last APRIL! By the way, that was April Fool’s Day. SMH…

    Hey Adam – did you take his class as well. I went to IU for grad school, and he is crazy smart. But his tweet is pure nonsense. Go Cats!!

    Easiest. Fan base. To troll. EVER.

    Some people need a GD life, man. I’m serious. You people love to rant about what some random dude says about the school most of you never even attended.

    Damn, I LOL at you folk.

    Oh, and I agree with #16. Continually dragging this old hat out of the closet to get a rise out of readers is just sorrier than sorry on KSR’s part.

    Had a nightmare that U of L beat us in the Final Four in 2013. Announcers were saying that the two schools were even as a result…I even read KSR during the dream and Corey Nichols was blaming refs. Final score was 86-85 btw. Thankfully, I woke up and there’s no way it’s ACTUALLY going to happen.
