    I went back and listened to part of Friday’s show on podcast yesterday… Ryan and Mike DeCourcy needs to have a regular segment together! I’m probably in the minority here, but I actually like noon games… I like being able to watch the game early, then still have the entire day left after it’s over.

    Uncle Matt… I hope you don’t get in a car wreck now. I’d be knocking on a lot of wood doing knock knock jokes. Did you all sleep in Jim Nantz room again? Put Ryan in the other room? My guess you can hear him through the walls?

    Did anyone read about the top recruit that is recieving death threats from a fanbase? Here is the link:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/top-10-prep-football-recruit-receives-recruiting-related-150128186.html

    These “Twitter & Facebook” links are bad as well, now this was not either because someone got his Phone #, but this is an example of WHY I hate Twitter and Facebook because of how the Cowards get a HUGE voice, and HAVE TO voice their 2 cents on everything. It is a HUGE problem and is only getting worse.

  30. quickie

    Kentucky competed against Georgia because they always had so many players from Georgia who played inspired because of that.

    Matt,

    I used to work at the The Campbell House – Crowne Plaza my last year at UK (through December 2011). We served the football team for every home game (Early Breakfast, Big Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Late Night Snack). I always found it amazing some of the stuff they would feed these guys in the 24 hours leading up to a game. While I really enjoyed the experience, I was wondering if Stoops new crew kept up the tradition of staying at the Crowne Plaza the weekends of home games? ANd if so, WHY?!?!?!?!??!? I find it hard to believe the new strength and conditioning guru would say the buffet those guys were served is acceptable for the level they are trying to acheive. I was just curious if you knew anything about this crucial yet I feel overlooked aspect of GameDay preparation.



  35. Tim
    10:30 am July 18, 2013 Permalink

    Matt, I’ve had 2 friends be student athletic trainers under Joker. Both said there was little to zero coaching during practice from Joker. Instead he talks to boosters during practice. Pretty sad.

    Did you and Ryan stay in another Honeymoon suite last night?



  37. DrSayre
    10:34 am July 18, 2013 Permalink

    I’m on Ryan’s side… mainly because people’s attention span is about 5 minutes, which is why everyone went from “We want Bobby Petrino!” to “STOOOPS!!” really quick. If we lose to WKU, I think that could flip back.

    KSR’s No. 1 golfer, Josh Teater, is playing in his very first British Open Championship today. Teater is +2 thru 16 holes. If he can get in with that number he will be doing pretty well for himself as the rest of the field still out on the course will struggle greatly this afternoon. UK golfer Ben Stow also did okay today, shooting a 5-over 76. He beat Rory McIlroy. Not too shabby.

    Can’t blame Chuck Smith for that. You have to blame Joker. He was in charge of the program. Who would want to play for that coach?

    And Joker was and will always be a positions coach. He had no business being a head coach. Brooks tried to assist him with his early years as HC and Joker wanted to do it his own way. Did not go well with Brooks.

    Matt, I have a random thought on one and dones.

    When you have a 4 yr player there is usually a couple yrs where they aren’t productive. Ex Russ smith, Darius miller, siva
    Look at our pg position. We’ve had wall, knight, Teague, harrow, and Harrison. I’d rather have the growing pains of the month or 2 rather than have the couple yrs of learning.

    Matt, Sam Ball didn’t play for Bear Bryant. You’re a decade off. Sam played for Charlie Bradshaw in the early 1960s, graduated in ’64. Bear coached UK from 1946-53. UK doesn’t exactly have a storied football history, but I would recommend Russell Rice’s history book of UK football entitled “Wildcats.” It has lots of photos, even one of Adolph Rupp in football gear when he was an assistant FOOTBALL coach in the early ’30s in addition to his head basketball coaching job.

    Matt, what tickets did you draw after you went off the air?
