    Too bad Neal Brown had to cancel… but it should still be a good show today. I wonder if Matthew Mitchell watches Breaking Bad? Too bad the guys are on the cruise… I would have loved to hear Ryan’s take on Terrence Jones stomping on a homeless man’s legs.

    I am back… We finally got to take our little girl home from the NICU on her 2 month birthday 7/29. Now 4 pounds and 5 ounces. I miss sleep, but she is worth it!

    According to LEX18 News last night the police report didn’t say he kicked someone, but it was an eyewitness account.

    Ryan was the first person I thought of when I heard the Real T Jones had stomped on the homeless man’s leg!!

    Happy to hear that JB. Is it bad that after a couple hours of disappointment in Terrence yesterday, that I started to find the whole thing funny? I SO wish Ryan were here today to give his thoughts.

    Can we get a shout out to the Knox County Little League All-Stars? They are headed to Indianapolis this morning to represent Kentucky in the Great Lakes Regional Tournament in hopes of winning their way to Pennsylvania and the Little League World Series! These same boys were the 11 y/o state champs last year! Best of luck, boys!

    Matt and KSR buildup Neal Brown on the show, then major letdown?

    Stupid action by Terrence, but I’m pretty sure it was just a silly (and selfish) prank made by a immature young man.

  23. Daniel

    Matt Mitchell should pull a Sting and walk through the audience



  24. Benji Runkle

    This show is already 100 times better than yesterday. Coach Mitchell is awesome

    Drew quite possibly came out of the womb intoxicated.



  26. WEAREUK

    Im not young and hip, what are the current hot dance songs and trends?



  27. btowncatfan
    10:17 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell is absolutely the best fill in host ever, even over others that have a lot more experience. Once coaching is over he is a natural on radio, and probably television.



  28. DublDownDrew
    10:18 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    I really enjoy Andre Ware’s work during SEC games. Please pass along that those of us who are fans of the game appreciate his insight into breaking down why things happened and helping us see things in a more educated fashion.



  29. realme
    10:18 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Maybe he should get in touch with his feminine side and do a Beyoncé routine.



  30. DublDownDrew
    10:18 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    I also second (or third at this point) that Coach Mitchell should dress up as The Stinger!



  31. trey
    10:19 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    may not have the right bodytype, but I think Coach Mitchell should dress up and act like Ron Burgundy throughout Midnight Madness



  32. UK Football Season

    1 month to go!



  33. WEAREUK

    Coach Mitchell should be landing 2014 Alyssa Rice a Top 10 Player in Nation out of Ohio. He continues to get it done with recruiting



  34. J in Orlando

    Just reading about T. Jones…that selfish M#&*^r F%@!$r!

    Would luv to see Mitchell as Sting repelling from the rafters at Madness

    Ask Andre about the QB’s and who he thinks should start.



  37. Stacy
    10:24 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Yes he should do beyonce! Put a ring on it! National championship rings would be nice!



  38. WEAREUK
    10:25 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Finally.. Andre Ware is 100% correct about Johnny



  39. Grouser
    10:26 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach should do a Blues Brothers skit, singing “Hold On the Twins are Coming”



  40. Big Blue Canoe
    10:28 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell should do the “Evolution of Dance” or some variation of it. You tube it if you don’t know what it is.



  41. jody harlow
    10:33 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell should do jungle love from Morris Day and the time. Get cal and stoops involved in it to

    Coach Mitchell, I have an idea for your upcoming Big Blue Madness Perfomance. How about “Gangman Style” or maybe even my one of my newest songs, “Gentleman?”



  45. Laker Cat 18
    10:44 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    I think coming out as Slash would be pretty cool.

  47. Paducah Patty

    I have an idea for Coach Mitchell, get on your knees, get a purple suit and do Prince.

    Mitchell’s voice sounds like Bill Clinton, and he seems like he can talk like Willie, too! Doing a great job. Just seems like a gregarious, good dude.

    Please don’t let Dave Baker talk about his sex life with the Body Shapes Medical commercials.

    Did you know that Ryan Lemond Likes to hit little girls in the head with Baseballs?



  61. MJB436

    Coach sure seems to know a lot of the “inside jokes” of the show. How often does he honestly listen???



  62. Cats, Cats, Cats
    11:20 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell, two ideas for BBM:

    1) Saturday Night Fever, complete with white suit.
    2) (My favorite) – the history/evolution of Dance

    You would kill it!



  63. MarkyMark
    11:22 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell, I think you should come out and do “The Bernie” dance. Of course you would have to have the classic Tommy Bahama shirt from the movie Weekend at Bernie’s



  64. Paducah Patty
    11:22 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach you should dress up like Cindy Lauper and with UK Hoops sing Girls Just Want to Have Fun.



  65. Jax Teller

    If Sydney Moss would have been allowed to transfer to UK, Matthew Mitchell would love Boone County even more.

    Coach Mitchell, how do you get your part so perfect in your hair? Also, do you use dapper dan hair care products and treatment? Great show today Coach & Shannon!

  68. UKBBall
    11:27 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach Mitchell, what did you think of the interview with the former cats released yesterday? Their lack of interest, professionalism and ‘depends on if the money’s right’ comment from Cousins?



  69. CatsFanInKnoxville

    Come on dude…Brittney Griner is one of a kind. Can you find another like her coach???

  72. UK2K
    11:31 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    70. I agree. Every year their are only 2-3 dominant post players in WBB, last year Baylor and UConn had them and UConn will have theirs back



  73. Bubba Earl
    11:32 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    Coach, how about James Brown, and dance to the song, “Get on the Good Foot” a moonwalk here and there would be perfect!



  74. UK2K
    11:32 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    70. If he lands Alyssa Rice like I think and hope, it will help a lot.



  75. Cats, Cats, Cats
    11:32 am August 1, 2013 Permalink

    #69, it was a joke. Did you not hear Cousins say later that the camp gave him an excuse to come back to Lexington? He’s stated many times that the year he was at UK was the best.

    Coach you could have reminded the last caller that you guys beat Delaware and Della Don in the tourney. And make sure you recruit a Sheryl swoops or a Candice Parker or a Valerie Still. 😉

    Second Idea:

    How about a Dance Off with Coach Cal, Like Starsky vs Dancing Rick in Starsky and Hutch. See the link.

    Coach,

    I can’t get through on the phone so I’ll just write you. As a father of a 6 year old girl I want to thank you for helping me change my daughters perception of gender roles. The way you have helped increase the popularity of women’s basketball and the fact that you’re a man coaching a women’s team provides an great example of how your gender does matter with regard to what you are capable of doing. I have use you and your team as example many times. So once again, thank you for doing what you do.

    Coach tell the gilrs to watch out for me in practice this year. I’ve been putting in work this offseason getting ready. I’ve been eating like a king at home all summer and havin a few beers instead of exercising so as you can imagine I’ve been gaining some weight, but I know it’s just pure muscle. I’ll be a load in the pain so tell them to beware!
