    I’m not sure what to do with my hands.

    Knew Mary through high school and college at UK – always been an awesome gal and a big UK fan. Great job and good luck with the casting call competition.

    Watch the video again and just pay attention to all the hand gestures.

    It’s terrifying.

    Too many hand gestures but overall she did an outstanding job. I love her

    Tie her hands to the chair and give her the job.
    With her last name, and that enthusiasm, everyone else is Louisville.

    She knows Kentucky sports and is easy on the eyes. She just needs to speak at a slower pace, with continued confidence, while giving the facts. Men are simple creatures and will tune out rambling!

    Thought she did a great job but her last name sounds too much like corrupt cat for her to get serious consideration.

    How was Matt’s question when he brings up the new uniforms a “fashion question” (to which she makes a snide comment about sexism). It sounded more like a UK relevancy question to me.

    She was not very insightful. She thinks UK can make it to the top tier of SEC football because she’s an “eternal optimist”. Well thanks for the analysis, sweetheart.

    Geez what a bunch of crybabies.

    Two things:

    1. Should I be bothered that the enunciation of her last name sounds like “Corrupt Cat”?

    2. A clean-shaven Tony Vanetti = a dead-ringer for Billy Clyde

    Was it a really bad case of the nervous jitters? If her hands were tied together under the table would her mouth still work? Some people can type 75 works a minute, Mary talks at the speed of light. Take a breathe, please. She seems to be knowledgeable enough, and attractive, but do we want to listen to her talk UK sports as a co-host? I doubt it. Mary “corrupt cat” Kurapkat, we really need to steer clear of that name anyway.

    Best I’ve seen so far,even though her hands are awfully busy. But I’d watch her (and her hand action)!
