Jump for joy….KSR starts now! (Show Thread)

After a week of traveling the country with Drew and DJ, Matt is back in the studio today to answer your questions and make your dreams come true. You can join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080 or send a text to (919) 928-1789.

Today’s topics include:

* Is anyone looking forward to August 15? Anyone?

* Can Sam Bowie and Joe B. connect with the modern athlete and lead the USA/UK to victory?

* Louisville fans are whiners

* Making the ultimate UK hate list

* Are the Broncos now the Commonwealth’s team and what does this say about Steve Brown’s in-game coaching?

* I’ll have you know that John Calipari is a straight up dude and is not a butt-kisser

The comments game also continues, but with a chance to win tickets to the UK – WKU football opener! Get excited. Each day, the two best comments will be selected by Matt and Drew the Intern and placed into a drawing for the tickets. Bring your A game.

    Matt, those of us in the far western part of the state need your advice. UK has a VERY large fanbase in far Western Kentucky. We follow KSR and we follow Coach Cal and all the former and current players on Facebook and Twitter. Everytime an appearance is announced by players it is never past Bowling Green or Owensboro. We understand that Coach Cal’s locations for his camps were dictated by NCAA rules but we never feel any UK love down this way. What really got several of us thinking about this was announcement that the Legends game was going to be on a Monday night. A weeknight, especially a Monday, makes it very hard for anyone outside the Lexington – Louisville area to attend. The price of the tickets would have afforded loyal fans from across the state to see their “beloved” wildcats play. As a longtime listener to your show I know this is probably not a concern of yours Matt, but if it was, how would you go about trying to get some UK love for this part of the state? Thank you! Love the show! Go CATS!!!

    It’s sad how these, “wahoo” Loserville homers, justify sucking on the regular by saying we don’t have to have future NBA guys on our team and how UK is doing it wrong and that UK should somehow lower their standards because “they can’t win it that way”. Pathetic

    Gee whiz, when did Gatewood morph into a teabagger? I remember when Gatewood was a Green Party candidate advocating the legalization of marijuana. He has gone from a candidate supporting a (arguably) reasonable premise for increased tax revenue from sales of marijuana. Now he’s had a big glass of Ron Paul Kool-Aid and moved completely into the teabagger fantasy world. Too bad. Now he is completely irrelevant.

    Matt, why does the dilussional Card fanbase think that Charlie Strong walks on water when they went 6-6 in the regular season, just like Joker did (in a vastly superior conference)? Their fan base thinks they will win the football game this year just because Coach strong is coaching. I like Coach Strong and believe he will do well enough to get another coaching job in the next year or 2. Why is their 6-6 great with a weaker schedule? Please educate me!

    The only way UofL beats the Cats this year is if The Truth somehow sneaks all the IU football players into Kentucky pads and jerseys. And even then, it would probably be a 0-0 9OT thriller until most of the fans, the officials, and the coaching staffs just said “screw it” and went home.
