    Can we agree that if Rupp changes it’s name for a sponsor, the choice is obvious?

    Brandon Knight lit up Louisville last year in the Chicken Bucket for 25 points. At this point last year, he was averaging 18.2 ppg, which is 1 full point higher than what he averaged by season’s end. Knight was not just better than Teague; he’s A LOT better than Teague.

    Speaking of the SEC tourney I think it will be interesting next year in Nashville to see the reaction of the Mizzou and Aggie Fans to the sea of blue in downtown Nashville. You know they have heard how well UK fans travel but they will get to see first hand next year at the SEC tourney.

    I used to drive 40 miles one way to listen to Cawood in all kinds of weather in Kansas when I was stationed there. I had to find the highest point in Kansas, which was rather hard because in Kansas you can sit on the hood of your car in the middle of the state and see Nebraska, Oklamhoma, and Colorado it’s so flat.

    A lot of times legislators add on things that aren’t related to each other – it’s a small subsection, so that they can get it through committee and get it passed. Happens all the time. They know that a bill just about UK/UL would essentially die – but tacked onto something bigger, gets passed.

    Sean Woods’ Mississippi Valley State team plays on March 1. That is their last game of the regular season. Kentucky plays Florida on March 4. The SWAC tournament starts on March 7. I know he will be preparing for the tournament, but I guess he might be able to make an appearance at Rupp on March 4.

    Like many others I was at Freedom Hall for the game. Everyone will agree that the place is now a dump and can’t see it being used much longer. Well what happens if we decide to renovate Rupp as planned but the renovation takes longer than planned and gets drug out into basketball season. Where are we going to play? No way they will play home games now at Freedom Hall. Also what would have happened or what will happen if Louisville ever got a NBA team? The guy that game on your show last year said that they would renovate Freedom Hall if we got a NBA team.

Even though I am a republican he is not a bad legislator, certainly better than what you got at the head of the Senate. I agree with what Tim is trying to do. I would take it one step futher and make UK and UL play home games against 2 Kentucky schools in basketball and 1 game in football so to give the Kentucky schools a good payday. Perhaps instead of making jokes about Tim you could have the AD’s of both schools on and ask them why they don’t schedule instate schools..
