    Is it now safe for the team to go to New York to play a basketball game after the recent hurricane with all of the existing damage and the expected severe storm on Wednesday and Thursday? Would it not be wise to cancel or play at a later date? What would happen if the any of the players or fans that are certain to follow the team were hurt in the existing conditions? Maybe it’s just the parent in me that is worried but I don’t believe that one game is worth the risk to the players.

    A big day for you marijuana lovers. Just noticed that two states (Colorado and Washington) legalized marijuana for personal use. That is a step in the right direction for all you hippies. I personally think it’s the right decision (not because I smoke) but because our country wastes too many resources trying to keep people from doing a relatively harmless drug.

    How to turn lemons into lemonade: During George Bush’s presidency, UK was unable to go to the Final Four or win a championship. However, under Obama’s time UK has accomplished both. Using this logic I can only predict the next 4 years will be good for UK basketball.

    The thing that gets me in the 35+yrs I have been following UK football is that they have always had “nice guys” as coaches. And how has that worked out for them? Exactly! Petrino is an ahole. But his players play hard for him and succeed. I know the saying “nice guys finish last” is just a saying. But looking at UK football’s history, there must be some truth to that considering the last “non nice guy” UK had was Bear Bryant and he won games here. Just saying…

    ERIC MANGINI for head football coach and im sticking to it until someone can put out a name better that we can actually get. We need an experienced coach thats high profile and that is the only way to severely improve recruiting. The Bellicheck coaching tree is the best just look at what O’brien from Penn St has done after losing all those players. He also has super bowl rings and he coached Brady and Favre. His espn connection wont hurt either, just look at mark gottfried in basketball. Josh Mcdaniels might not be bad to look at also.

    The NBA’s drug testing program is a joke. You basically can’t smoke in the preseason. You can get three random tests in the pre-season for any player. The rookies can get up to three random tests in the regular season. All other players can only be tested during the regular season for a “reasonable cause.” No way you test your players during the season if you don’t want to lose them for a little while.

    1 many good young players to develop
    2 two decent qb’s to build around

    Tina Sobel Foster I am one of the heartbroken parents that sit here today…beyondddd “sad”. For each one of you in the Big Blue Nation you can rest assured that you just lost a man that stood up for you, did you VERY PROUD as he represented you on the recruiting trail, in our homes, during our sons’ visits to the UK campus. From the first SECOND that I met Joe Phillips, it was about the connection that was made with this great human being…a man of tremendous class and who DID THIS RECRUITING THING RIGHT! Lest anyone forget, WHEN this team is successful, as it WILL BE, it will be Joker’s stellar recruiting efforts that will be the reason.

    119. I agree. Cal is the “ambassodor” for UK. Kentucky needs a hard nosed, no nonsense type of coach that would “grab a tiger by the tail.” Then the coach needs to instill that into his players. I think Brooks won because he brought in winners. He brought in kids from perenial winning programs that didn’t know anything but winning. Example, Jacob Tamme. It is not always about the stars beside a kids name. I think the program they come from is just as important.

At the Blue-White game I was looking around and I thought what really stands out is the lack of LED ribbon video boards. The rim of the arena looks very ugly with some outdated advertisment machines, the old score boards, and some faded blue and yellow design that covers the rest of the rim of the arena.

    Again Matt, excuse me for not being able to easily swallow everything you say about Petrino. You seem very biased against Petrino and have been saying for a long time that UK wouldn’t hire him so I know you wouldn’t want to start changing your stance now. I respect you not thinking he is good for the job, but I don’t take it at face value your claims about Petrino being such a bad person to be around because you never covered or worked around him. Considering the outcry for Petrino from so many UK fans, I think you owe it to us to get somebody on your show who really knows the man and can explain why he would be good for the job and why he wouldn’t be.

    News Flash Matt: You do a sports show and there is a lot of debating that goes on with a sports show. I don’t listen because of you. I listen because you discuss UK sports. I would suggest the same is true for many of your listeners. If Ryan Lemond was the main host of this show I believe it would get the same type of ratings. Remember that fact and let’s take that ego down a notch.

    It’s impossible for us to line up and beat other SEC teams by playing the same way. Let’s get someone who can carve an offensive niche and hope that our Defense becomes good enough to allow our offense to outscore them. In that vein, what about Rich Rod? Arizona can’t be a better job than UK. Right?

    238 — I don’t care what you think…initially. The fact that I have a brain and can put sentences together qualifies me to have my own opinion.

    I realized I needed to get my priorites in order when I thought to myself, “Would I trade the Cats’ National Championship for a Romney win?” I’m now ashamed of myself that I thought anything might be worth giving up the title.

    FUNNY HOW MATT DIDNT CUT THAT DUDE OFF WHO WAS CALLING OBAMA GREAT AND HACKIN ON ROMNEY! the hell with the dude who called in and the same with Matt et. al. if they cant keep their opinion to themselves! Be a shame if ol’ Matt lost that new gig with UK if he cant keep his opinions on politics to himself. I will start Calling UKAA if this stuff continues….and I know alot of others who will happily do the same.

    #233 because Petrino had an affair @Arkansas doen’t mean he would somewhere else, and what did Petrino do there that Pitino hasn’t done at UL and UK for that matter?? UL is ready to erect a statue of Pitino cause they love him so much! I am a fan I want to compete in the SEC,win some games, I am not here to pass moral judgement on people!!
