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

Let’s talk about Pete’s new job (Thursday Show Thread)

Our good friend Pete Thamel recently started batting for the other team when he left his cubicle at The New York Times for a cubicle at Sports Illustrated. As you’re aware, Pete’s first article for SI came out yesterday and it hits all three of his favorite topics: John Calipari, Kentucky and recruiting.

We’ll talk about it on this morning’s radio show.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080

Other topics could include:

— Julius Randle’s recent comments

— Wright State bitter over Julius Mays

— Jorts worked out with the Heat

— Joker’s comments from the football luncheon

    I laugh every time Thamel refers to himself as a “journalist”…what kind of journalist cites his own article in a purely speculative piece WITHOUT mentioning it was HE who wrote the article he is citing? If he covered serious news and pulled that crap he would be unemployable.

    Matt giving him a hard time for laughing at the name “Thamel-toe”, but he’s the one saying it. What’s the point of saying it if you don’t want people to laugh?

    the noel story is only a story because noel ended up at uk rather then sryracuse. noel’s AAU coach promised to deliver noel to the cuse. when noel made up his own mind where to go, now that coach is leaking news to thamel. thamel is a big cuse fan.

    Sandy Bell called Nerlens August 8th and said he was “good to go”. Supposedly the meeting took place in early August. I’m sure Bell called him after the meeting because what would be the point of calling him and then heading off on a plane to a NCAA meeting regarding his eligibility.

  26. Head Bussa
    10:22 am August 23, 2012 Permalink

    People don’t realize how serious UK is about complying to the NCAA rules so we don’t have a re-do of the last situation. So people don’t understand that Sandy Bell will be everywhere dotting all our I’s and our T’s. If Noel wasn’t good to go, Sandy would be like “sorry, but he’s not playing here”.

    You know the scene in Shawshank where Dufrene is writing a letter a week for funds and they finally send it and he says he’ll then write two letters a week? That is Thamel. He writes about UK all the time, he succeeded in making Kanter ineligible, now he is uncontrollably investigating UK

    the Thamel article quotes Chris Driscoll
    : “Nerlens is my last chance. I need to score and I need to score big.” Driscoll later told O’Neil about Noel: “You’re either with me or against me on this.”

    But this quote could be from Pete Thamel on his obsession with bringing down UK basketball.

    Would it be wrong to have KSR investigate Thameltoe? You could interview his college girlfriends, previous co-workers, etc. The goal would be to prove he is a dork, just like his goal is proving UK cheats. It would be AWESOME.

    Barnhart would be foolish if he was as closed-minded regarding Petrino as many of our fans. He needs to really consider the man’s remorse about what he’s done and also consider the positives that Petrino can bring as opposed to potential negatives.

    I dont agree that Thamel could have any effect on the UNC scandal…that would require diligent journalistic work. Thamel is a hack…he is lazy…that’s why he goes after Cal, because it’s easy…he doesn’t have to do anything but float speculation based on nothing. Same laziness that Goodman and Parrish have fallen victim to lately.

    We will find out real quickly on the defensive side of the ball if we will be able to be competitive this year. I think our offense will be better, but we became a decent defense by the end of last season based on Trevathan’s awesome play and Winston Guy’s improved play. So, in my belief, we will be able to tell real quick if anybody is flying around the field making plays and going to be a leader on our defense. If we don’t have that type of leader or leaders, I just don’t know if we have a chance.

    I don’t know why this Thamel guy gets everyone so worked up. I really don’t. His job is to be a “watchdog” on possible NCAA impropriety and he barks when he hears or sees something moving. Doesn’t mean that he’s a good “watchdog” and he seems to bark more at people that wear blue and white, but he’s just doing a job. No big deal as long as Sandy Bell is on the case and UK is on the up and up.

    Anyone Notice a pattern?

    John Wall – #1 recruit – NCAA investigation plus the breaking an entering thing with the house (short suspention)
    Enes Kanter – #3 recruit (highest recruit for UK) – investigation and ruled ineligible
    Anthony Davis – #1 recruit – NCAA quesitoning the 7,000 dollar thing or whatever
    Nerlens Noel – #1 recruit – NCAA investigation on reclassification

    will this always continue and be a patter of UK’s highest rated recruit being investigated???

    Why would anyone want Petrino? He would only use the job as a springboard…….Franklin has proven you can win at Vandy! He may be more interested in staying at UK provided these boosters as Mitch Barnhart says could afford a big time coach after he changes the culture of UK football.

  152. Head Bussa

    Matt is so wrong on this. Mike Leach is known to have a substance-abuse issue with alcohol and there is no way in hell Barnhart will hire someone like that after BCG. Bobby Petrino is as good a coach as you can hire and he has great control of his team and his players. He had an affair and that is the only “bad” thing he has done as a coach. If he shows true remorse I can’t understand why Matt thinks Barnhart wouldn’t consider him. It makes no sense. So he left the Falcons? He has that right. So he wanted out of Louisville and seeked other jobs while there? Who wouldn’t?

    146 — A springboard to where? A better conference? If Petrino actually were to accept and get the UK job, he would be taking on a task in which he knows would be hard but incredibly rewarding. If he makes us a competitive team, he will be making us a good team in the SEC — the best conference in the nation. He doesn’t seem to be going back to the NFL again, so I can’t believe he would be looking to move anywhere else if he began to build up the UK program.
