    Hey Y’all! Oh wait… sorry Paula Dean. I am excited for the KSR tour! I hope when you past through my home county of Wolfe, that when you stop there , be sure to wear a shirt and your shoes on. It’s law.

    Since 1080 is Dave Ramsey AM, you need to have him on.

    A story that is not getting a whole lot of headlines right now is the lawsuit in LA between Todd McNair and the NCAA. The LA judge ruled that the emails from the investigation be unsealed. Basically there are 2 branches of the NCAA – the investigators and the sanction committee. During an investigation they cannot communicate. There are numerous emails that prove otherwise and if USC’s AD chooses to pursue this they could get their Crystal Ball back, wins back and be the first step in dethroning the NCAA

    If Nerlens can’t go number one (he should though), hopefully he goes 3 to team up with John Wall, or 4 to team up with MKG. That would be so fun to watch.

    My worry with Poythress isn’t work ethic, it’s in-game reaction when he gets a shot blocked or misses a bunny. It’s easy not to get down on yourself in a pickup game, less so on the big stage. Alex worked hard UNTIL something went wrong, then he got all mopey.

    Last week someone called and said that the makers of college basketball video games had to be happy for this coming year. Well, they could be happy but it won’t be for some college basketball video games because there aren’t any. The last one was made back in 2010. All of the games were canceled either back in 2009 or in 2010. I remember that specifically because I went to look for a game with John Wall and Cousins and found out that there weren’t any. The timing of it was suspect because it’s right about the same time as the O’Bannon lawsuit that’s going on right now. It was filed back during the summer of 09 and the likenesses in video games is a major point of it.

    It’s one of those things that I heard on podcasts and I don’t think anyone else caught after the caller said it.

    102) not really no… And either way I’ve seen both movies several times and I’m a big Depp fan and I didn’t know the answer because I knew the character in Rum Diary was named Kemp.

    Its not a big deal I was just pointing out that it wasn’t a really fair question and not shocking that no one got it

    JA, I would have gotten it right. That’s why I posted Hunter S Thompson when Matt asked the question. So it wasn’t impossible to get.

    128) you would’ve gotten it “right” because you would have said what matt believed to be correct .

    In reality you both would’ve been wrong and Depp has never played the same real life character twice.

    Most authors’ main characters are largely self portraits. But did Edward Norton play Chuck Paluniuk in fight Club? No he played the narrator/Jack. The character is largely based on CP and his experiences but Norton isn’t playing CP he’s playing the character of Narrator/Jack.
