    Disappointed in hearing how many players wont be playing in the Alumni games tomorrow,probably wouldnt have bought tickets if I would have known. No Mercer,Nazr,Meeks,Lamb,Patterson to name a few.

    I just listened to the podcast for yesterday and the fact that people are acting like Tee Martin was the problem with the WR’s last year is stupid. He IS the WR coach at USC and all USC guys LOVE him. Tee is a very demanding person and teaches things on a NFL level when it comes to route running and timing… Maybe it was the fact that every ball thrown to a WR last year was either 5 feet too high, in the dirt or 5 yards behind a WR. This thought that Tee Martin was the problem for our WR’s is absolutely stupid.

    #2–On the alumni game: It’s a charity event that is reuniting past players and celebrates the unmatched greatness of UK basketball. It sounds silly to complain about who will or won’t play during the game. If you don’t want your tickets, my son and I would gladly take them off your hands.

    It has been interesting and a little disconcerting on your reports the last few days on cases bubonic plague being reported in Colorado. I ask my daughter, who is a Dr., if she had heard of this. She said she had as well as cases in Oregon. She also stated that this is not that unusual in that there are between 7 and 12 cases of the plague reported in the U.S. each year.

    November 22nd, 2001 I believe. Patrick Sparks and David Boyden put it on UK that night. I was a WKU freshman and was wearing all blue. I nearly got jumped by a bunch of drunk WKU fans after the game because someone told them I was a WKU student.

    I’ll never cheer for WKU over UK. About 2 months before this game I was robbed by 2 WKU football players and nothing was done about it.

He has continuously expressed his love for UK and you don’t always hear that from former players.

    For anyone that wants to be close to the program for a day or two, just pay a hundred bucks and go to the coaching clinic. I went Cal’s first two years as a coach, but I’m pretty sure know you don’t have to be a coach to go. It’s a great chance to get a preview of the team and to get an understanding of the style Cal coaches. It quickly makes you realize how dumb people sound that say Cal isn’t a good coach. I also remember the first year, seeing DeMarcus, Eric, and John. I was absolutely blown away by how good they were.

    I just think it’s silly to think that there is absolutely no way Petrino can become our coach. The man is an awesome coach, and if he shows to be truly remorseful I would think Barnhart would certainly have to consider him. I also know Petrino wouldn’t mind to be at Kentucky to be close to his daughter.

    Tony Greene is awful. The man is not consistent with his calls whatsoever. It truly is anyone’s guess what he will call on a block/charge call. It can blatantly look like a block or charge, but he will usually call it the wrong way.

    122 – how many teams does he have to screw over before people realize he’s not worth it? He has serious issues that don’t go away with a simple apology.

    I don’t know if Petrino will be getting too many offers this first year from many better situations than Kentucky. I also think it will be hard to turn down a gig back in the SEC, regardless if it is Kentucky or not.

    126 — You’re probably right about Barnhart’s feelings. It’s just that I think that people’s opinions can change and that he would be doing UK a disservice by not considering him when the time comes.

    Matt be glad Antoine Walker hasn’t been able to borrow the $2 for the Top 50 Podcast. Did Drew Franklin buy Antoine drinks at Tin Roof last night?

    Auburn & UT are probably going to be looking for coaches. For people who think he is coming to UK, Petrino is NOT coming to UK, stop living in delusion.

    132 I disagree…the problems that accompany hiring Petrino are not going to be worth the slight improvement in the team for the 2 years he would be there. He is a good coach, but his ceiling will be no different- 6-7 wins in good years, no bowl in bad years

    134 — I would bet that neither one of those schools will be looking for a coach at the end of this season. I think Dooley will be safe as this Tenn. team is looking to be pretty good. In addition, I do not think Gene Chizek will be gone just two years removed from a national championship.

    135 — That’s cool. Agree to disagree. I do not think he would be using Kentucky as a stepping stone just like it seemed like he wasn’t using Arkansas as one either.

    Ryan is absolutely terrible. Why don’t they just give the mic to Drew? I can’t believe someone as ignorant and incompetent as Ryan can co host a show this much. I’m just going to say to you what you say to callers, “Just shut up!”

    Is it going to take a big name like Rich brooks in some interview calling the University of Kentucky “CHEAP” or that he was lied to by the administration as far as funding goes, to shame them publicly, for our university to actually be something we can be proud of day in and out. We look pathetic, like we need the pity of other states when it comes to committment to futhuring funding Football Facilities. I Love the state of Ken-Tuckkee UK needs to step it up and join us.
