    Wow, I really don’t understand these judges. How could any normal human being watch Woody Cherry and not be blown away – even moved to tears. These guys don’t know talent when they see it. Woody Chery, you make my heart sing. Some other sports channel will be “tapping on your glass” any day now. You do need to tailor your suit though.

    Woody Cherry in a tailored suit MIGHT be ready for KSTV.

    Is that the same Woody Cherry from Winchester????? That guy is so sweet. I always thought he’d end up in the media world. Great job, Woody!!

    The guy from Cleveland is great. Woody seems like he could be good with some work. Maybe he would be better on radio.

    That guy should win from his name alone! Woody Cherry is Bauce! He knows everything about UK and looks super small next to drew franklin!

    5 and 6 – Why does it matter what his suit looks like? He is as genuine as they come. Probably not a fit for the show, as Matt said, but he knows his stuff. Congrats to him for giving it a shot. I hope he makes it through somehow.

    What’s with all the Woody Cherry stuff? I thought he did good, but does this might be a bit much. That being said, I hope he comes back next year. He seems like a great guy, and I wouldn’t mind hearing him on the radio. Needle is prime for TV though.

    SO disappointed in My Old Kentucky Home. I can’t believe you couldn’t see what a STAR Woody Cherry is. He would have put this program on the national map baby. Hopefully someone else scoops him up soon so we can enjoy more of his awesome God-given talent and knowledge of UK sports. So sad the so called judges couldn’t see the potential of what was right in front of them. Sometimes, just being real and genuine beats out experience. It would have been an awesome show. Such a sad, sad day in KY sports….

    This is funny stuff. With all this fan support, maybe Matt should’ve kept him.

    agree, darius should have his jersey in the rafters. he did go through a lot. good point, woody.

    Ditto 21. Anyone who endured the BCG years should get compensation or their jersey in the rafters and an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. Woody might be right?

    Bledsoe is killing it right now. In other news, Woody Cherry has become a one-post wonder. Wait, he did say this was his second KSR appearance. Kudos to him.

    Bill Needle was great, very polished, very smooth.
    He is an instant upgrade over, well, anybody, at KSTV.

    Two thumbs way up for Bill Needle.
    Very likeable,genuine,impressive.

    Having Bill go through the rest of the process is beyond stupid; this guy blows everyone even the current staff away, just hire the guy already.

    Someone needs to turn off Chips mic, can he breath just a little heavier into the mic next time; Chips needs to go on a diet with Ryan Lemond a shed a few lbs.

    Bill Needle was often my substitute teacher a couple of Years ago. One of the best ever and I hope to god that he wins this casting call.

    I mean, I’ll be honest, I’m almost embarrassed to have my video up after Bill’s! Hahaha… seriously, though: Bill is fantastic, and you’ve got to love people that are gracious and humble. Those are two of the best characteristics you can have. Matt found a sideline partner.

    Dude’s a pro.
