Kentucky Sports Radio

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

It’s Almost Here (Friday Show Thread)

It’s the last show before the biggest game of Kentucky’s season. Louisville comes to town tomorrow evening and Matt still has plenty to talk about before they do. Come join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or sending a text to the texting machine (919) 928-1789.

Today’s topics include:

* A recap of KSR’s Louisville Hate Day

* How will Raymond Sanders’ injury affect the offense?

* Wearing pink tank-tops to a tailgate

* Beat The Cards

It’s easily going to be one of the five best shows this week. I promise you that.

    First of all, I’m glad you mentioned our fellow Kentuckian receiving the medal of honor, listened to it on a local radio station and got cold chills, a true hero.

    Now on to Loserville- I’ve got the photo you were looking for from the caller yesterday who mentioned his UL server with the tramp stamp.

    Additionally, as Coach Cal loves to mention we are the Commonwealth’s Team so let’s adopt the state motto, “Together we stand, divided we fall.” #Teamjennifer and #teamsitdown unite against the dirty birds and lets all”Rise” against the ville tomorrow.

    Matt Jones: Is there some history between fark.com and Kentucky Sports Radio? I submitted a link to Fark for Louisville Hate Day and it seemed like it was automatically rejected. Just wondering, seems like they would be good buddy websites since you guys are both based in/around Lexington KY and hate Duke, but thinking back I’ve NEVER seen a link to KSR over there.

    Matt, I’m going to make the Rick Pitino/John Calipari argument simple.

    Rick Pitino, in ten years at Louisville: 2 Elite Eights, 1 Final Four, 5 NBA Draft Picks (Earl Clark, Samardo Samuels, Terrence Williams, Francisco Garcia, and that INCLUDES REECE GAINES, a DENNY CRUM RECRUIT).

    John Calipari, in two years at Kentucky: 1 Final Four, 1 Elite Eight, 8 NBA Draft picks (Patrick Patterson, John Wall, Daniel Orton, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, DeAndre Liggins, Josh Harrellson, DeMarcus Cousins, not including Enes Kanter).

    Game, set, match.
