Kentucky Sports Radio

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

“It’s like Hollywood at Kentucky. That’s what they do.”

As expected, the rest of the nation is green with envy this morning after yesterday’s blue-letter day for the Cats. From the news that Nerlens is in the clear, to the addition of Marcus Lee, to Cal swinging his swag all over ESPN and finally, the thirty-minute recruiting infomercial that was ESPN’s All-Access special, there were plenty of reasons to be jealous of the Cats. So much so that Govolsxtra.com’s Brendan F. Quinn wrote a post last night entitled “Hard for nation to see UT basketball behind all that Kentucky blue.” He asked Cuonzo Martin and his players about the special, which, to their credit, they mostly brushed off.

Cuonzo Martin, who is entirely too likeable to be the coach of the Volunteers if you ask me, said that he’s only concerned with his team’s performance on the floor. Even Jarnell Stokes, he-who-doesn’t-know-how-to-stretch, refused to comment on the special, choosing instead to call the Cats a good team. (Maybe he’s learned to keep his mouth shut when it comes to UK after last season?) But junior point guard Trae Golden’s comments were my favorite:

“I don’t think nothing of it. If you win the national championship I guess they’re going to do that for you. I don’t know, it’s like Hollywood at Kentucky. That’s what they do.

Straight from the mouth of our opponent, I can’t think of higher praise.

    Hollywood is a perfect word to describe it. It’s we’re everyone flocks to to become a star

    To me the best part of All Access was A. Harrison saying “We knew we could play for Coach Cal, or play for a normal coach.”

    That’s somewhat of a paraphrase, but it spoke volumes.

    And yes I said A. because I couldn’t tell which one it was.

    listening to the podcast now. Anyone else think Matt’s soft voice is kind of creepy? Also, seems kind of fake. I know he was sincere but ti sounds forced.

    “I don’t think nothing of it. If you win the national championship I guess they’re going to d”o that for you. I don’t know, it’s like Hollywood at Kentucky. That’s what they do.”

    Just wanted to see if I could copy that statement. Wasn’t he the player that compared the CATS to a jeep and the UT program was some fancy non-American auto when he signed with UT?

    That was Bobby Maize a number of years ago when Bruce Pearl was still there and we had Gillispie. He said UK was a Range Rover, but UT was a ferrari. How’d that work out for you Bobby?
