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

KSR Hate Mail

a very love hate relationsip that never was,and always will be. Pictures, Images and Photos

We don’t do this very often.  In fact, I think hate emails have only been published two or three times on
here.  It’s rare that we get an email with enough comedic value to post.  This one, though, gave the KSR staff great enjoyment this afternoon and, after that garbage at the end of the UK-Duke womens’ game, we figured you would enjoy it too. 

In today’s afternoon notes, the following blurb about Seth Davis was included:

– In his annual ”Stock Report” piece, Seth Davis said that he is “buying” UK.  I dont’ know if that’s figurative or the Cats will now live in the Wildcat Douche Lodge, but it’s at least an interesting note.  Also, if you’re reading this, Seth, I believe we’re trying to go through the eight levels of radio booking for you and are at level three.  Any cheat codes would be appreciated.

Didn’t seem like a huge deal.  To most people, it probably wasn’t.  To this guy, though, it was enough to sit down and craft an awesomely hilarious verbal assault on Matt Jones, who had absolutely nothing to do with the post.  I’m not sure our friend understood the intended humor of the Davis barb, but he still hit a home run with his one-liners.  WARNING:  There are some insinuations that you likely wouldn’t make in front of your mother.

Enjoy…

Matt
I am from East Ky, a life time follower of the Cats, and have been following your site for few years, it is very loved Uk basketball site, I read it everyday and enjoy it, but what do you mean by this? Wildcat Douche Lodge,,,,,,,,,,,,,Are you talking about the new name of the lodge,Is it supposed to be Wildcat Coal Lodge,
Are you saying that by adding Coal to the name, that Coal is compared and degraded by something a woman places inside of here to rid herself of a bad smell. What about the Joe Craft Center, if not for Coal,Joe Craft, Jim Booth, Booth Energy and Ky being a powerful Coal state, there would probably be no Calipari at Ky, because UK and the Politicians in the State love their Basketball, and accept big donations from Coal donors and without Coal, there would be no power to run your precious little website, I am not a coal miner, never have been,never will be, but to throw off on Coal by replacing it with Douche, you should be really ashamed,, maybe you should look in the mirror and place you hand in your pants and smell and see if you and your Tree Hugging friends(Ashley Judd) are the one’s needing the Douche,, You suck big ones now,,You Lost a fan, Eat a Big One Matt,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Go Cats

Boom!  Roasted, Matt Jones!  Now go get us some more coal to throw on the server.

    Bottom line is, Rick Pitino’s right hand “BOOSTER” was from Hazard and coal donors have made UK basketball what it is today. See Joe Craft Center for more info. Also, the coal donors are about to give the UK men’s basketball team the best living quarters in college basketball. You may or may not support coal, but it’s what keeps the lights (and UK basketball) on.

I also was wondering since Mark was a former president of the university of washington caused any hatred towards Uk since Enes was going to commit to washington b4 Uk, he said he was a Husky for life an im sure he hated the Maui invitational this year after UK beat his precious lil school! I know sometimes life is unfair and sometimes a higher power can do what they want….but you Mark Emmert! Disgust me!! Free Enes!!!

    thanks TB, for posting a completely stereotypical “Let’s laugh at the Eastern Kentuckian” article. I am from Eastern Kentucky, and completely disagree with everything the anonymous poster said. But thanks for the typecasting, we all appreciate it, and love the chuckles around the water cooler! Obviously this guy misinterpreted the joke, completely, and overreacted. Way to take advantage of a stereotype for some low brow humor.

    1: This guy can’t read, and I’m proud of him for still being able to purchase an Acer PC at Walmart.

    2: “Wildcat Coal Lodge” is not catchy and is pointless. It will have no effect on the perception of coal as a whole, and it advertises to a non-existent audience, considering everyone knows this state will continue to make millionaires of the coal industry whether we like it or not. It serves no purpose to the blue-collar communities (will not affect the market) and it isn’t attractive on paper to recruits.

    29- I don’t think TB was generalizing Eastern Kentucky by posting this. It is just really funny hate mail from a clueless guy. HE was the one that said he was from Eastern Kentucky. The coal industry in Kentucky is a complex issue that is taken seriously by everyone. While mining has devastating environmental consequences, it provides work for many Kentuckians and is a crucial part of our economy. This post is just plain funny.

    i went to high school with jones, he was a few grades ahead of me. never really knew him, but i know he was a super nerd. did you know that he made like a 35 on his ACT? i believe thats correct…whatever the highest score you could make, he made one point less. dude was smart as hell. he sucked at tennis though. but he was a genius. when cal came to middlesboro a few months back, he was there and chatting it up with the local politicians. and whenever he gets a chance to name-drop middlesboro, he does. and i appreciate the hell out of that and so do a lot of other folks here.

    i have no idea what the point of this post was cause im a little drunk…but other than the fact that although i dont personally know matt, hes a smart guy and theres no way he is anti-coal. as liberal as he is, that boy is from the heart of coal country, and he is a proud Bell Countian and East Kentuckian through and through…and since Matt would probably lose in any sort of physical confrontation, I can tell you that hes got a TON of fans in eastern Kentucky that would gladly whoop someones @$$ for him…real talk, son.

    For what it’s worth… coal and tobacco have been the cash crops for Kentucky since the beginning. Unfortunately, both are extremely bad for us… At last check (a year or so ago) for every two dollars Kentucky makes on profit from coal, we spend 3 in terms of health care costs and pollution. I am not putting down the stereotypical eastern Ky miner and his family, it is just time to move on to more sustainable and healthier form of energy production. Look at the TVA (at Land Between the Lakes) and the hydroelectric power generated, the wind farms off Cape Cod, solar farms, etc. Coal is 17th century technology and while cheap… let’s modernize things a bit and come up to speed with the rest of the world.

    Bees, let me say what a fine job I think you have done since taking over this website. I personally think you are twice the writer that Matt is and have a much better wit. This is not to underplay the terrific Job that Matt Jones did in developing this site. He should be commended. However, he is thinned skinned. He promotes this site as “University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.” Yet, ridicules and berates the ridiculous. I’ll never leave this site but I have had Matt strike at me for good natured and sincere questions. I heard his radio show today and it seemed he was on the sarcastic path of every talk show host he ever abhored. Just be real; respect the people that support you; and, do your thing.

    58) first of all, east ky doesnt have the water that east tn does. no way to model east ky after that, its a completely different animal.

    second – TVA is going through some rough times budget wise. ask anyone who works for them.

    dont get me wrong, i agree with clean energy and all that hippy crap. it would be nice, buts its not practical in eastern ky. we’re about coal here. thats our lifesblood. its practical, it pays better than any job in our area, and it keeps food on the table for a lot of folks.

    the real problem in coal is that non-coal producing counties get their grubby paws on our coal severance tax dollars. how the hell you gonna justify building a city park in louisville with tax dollars that were bled out of the east ky coal fields….makes me sick to think about the ‘general fund’ and the region its raped….

    Well, here is another opinion from Eastern Kentucky. I was raised in the Hazard Coal Field which, over time, has been stripped, dug, hammered and fought over. Coal, steel and petroleum companies raped and pillaged the eastern most part of Kentucky for, what seems like, the last millennium. Because of, mostly, absentee ownership they paid little or no tax on the income or on the land to which they laid waste. Those companies that abused the countries natural resources in the name of capitalism should give to something, but that something should be more substantial than a basketball residence. Coal, itself, is not the villain but the corporate gangs are nothing less. Referring to the hall as a douche may not be relevant but if it is a comment on corporate coal it is a minor(no pun intended)insult.

    Anonymous: “COAL MADE THIS MOVIE PLAY! AND I WILL WRITE RANDOM, UNCITED STATISTICS AT EVERY THING TO KILL A SPORTS SITE COMMENTS THREAD! WE BUILT THIS STATE!”

    FormerFan: “I didn’t actually pay any attention to this. I just went ahead and threw my tv and computer out the window because I know what is going on.”

    Anonymous: “we need clean energy and i do that by not using all caps. so coal was mentioned and i am going to listen to jack johnson and look up clean energy statistics in the books i rented from the library. they are guaranteed to be on recycled paper.

    I never once read a derogatory statement about the people from Eastern Kentucky, at least not until the bees, or whoever the hell is now in control of this site. As I recall he said something a few weeks or so ago about how we could still see of them there hills in the mountains (not sure, but it was something to that extent. My brother-in-law put me on this site a couple of years ago and I have told several others bout’ it. It kinda got under my skin, the comment made about over them there mountains, but I still continue to follow the site for the latest about UK sports. I love a good joke as well as the next person, and can be as sarcastic/witty as the next, but show some more respect/love for the people over “them there mountains” or whatever the hell you said. That’s about all on that subject. I really like this years team, even better than last year’s. Comparisons can be made all you want, but this team has more chemistry as last year maybe a little more raw talent; Brandon Knight is one of the best point guards I’ve seen in a while, and he just keeps getting better, Lamb is a tough player and has one of the smoothest jumpers I’ve seen in a while, T.J. is a beast when he wants to be, JORTS great strides (new he had talent), Miller hustler and Ky. boy, and what about Liggins coming in to his own. I really love this year’s squad and honestly think we could go deep in March.

Please tell me I missed something else. I don’t want to feel sorry for you any more than I already do.

    Why are people in Eastern Kentucky so paranoid anyways? I didn’t see anyone making fun of Eastern Kentucky until you people started stereotyping yourselves in the comments. The post says ” hit a home run with his one-liners” and if you don’t think the insults are funny then you do deserve to be mocked. Amazing how you all seem to think it’s ok for an idiot to take the time to send a vulgar letter to the people running this site but it’s not ok for him to be mocked in return.

He would be better served holding his views a little closer and more quietly out of politeness to his readers and listeners.

    I certainly doubt that the KSR powers-that-be wouldn’t have an issue if the Fed bought the lodge and titled it “Wildcat Wealth Redistribution Lodge” wherein our players would work hard, win games, and be forced to switch places with occupants of the hope center.

    Seriously though, it could be much worse, like having a Basketball arena funded by and named after a significant contributor of heart disease, and having all that trans fat dripping into your scalp.

    If Jones doesn’t start being more considerate to other’s opinions, his audience will fall dramatically. Oh yes, he will have the ones who call in regularly, but other’s including myself won’t listen. I have even backed away from listening. Also, if he doesn’t lay off the hand that feeds him, they will shut him down. I have never seen someone carry on like he does to the people who pay him. If he doesn’t change his attitude, he will be short lived. I don’t know why he thinks he is so superior to others. His mouth never shuts up. If he asks a question, he should at least permit the question to be answered. It’s okay to argue with Louisville fans, but to start ranting with your (employers), that’s a different story.
