Mao Goggles Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Hunter is studying abroad in Beijing and he tried to add a little Kentucky flair to Tiananmen Square. Mao Zedong gets it. He also wants notes and a podcast.

— We let a quote slip by us last night at the UK basketball press conference. When Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was asked why he plans to buy his mom a watch, he said, “I dont know. I’m just saying stuff to say it so I can get out of here.” Statements like those remind us that these kids are just 18-year-olds who are having fun and living out their dreams. They “just want to get out of here.” **Out of the press conference, not Lexington.

I miss them already.

— In Knoxville, Pat Summitt stepped down from her throne at Tennessee to hand the reins over to her longtime assistant Holly Warlick. Summitt is suffering through early onset Alzheimer’s disease but she will continue to serve head coach emeritus with the team. Warlick’s promotion eliminates any worries UK fans may have had about Matthew Mitchell being considered for the job.

— Former Tennessee football coach Phil Fulmer is under consideration for the Arkansas job left open by Bobby Petrino. Fulmer, who also rides motorcycles,  was contacted by the Razorbacks but the extent of the conversation is unknown. Fulmer would be a great fit to replace Petrino because I can’t imagine too many 22-year-olds getting personal with him.

— A KSR favorite will be sitting out when the Blue and White squads go head-to-head this Saturday in UK’s spring football game. Bookie Cobbins is taking time off from spring football activities to focus on his academics. Joker said, “I’d rather him be here in August.” Come on, Bookie. Buckle down and get those grades up. This team needs your swag.

— Matt and the gang relived last night’s announcements and looked ahead to the spring football game on today’ radio show. Here is your podcast…

    haha good photo! After seeing that it makes me want to dig up Hitler’s dead rotting body and prop his ass up and throw him the 3-googles. Then I’ll run my fingers through his brittle skull and then I might just eat a piece of him too. After all, eating rotting meat is the cure for cancer.

    Hunter should be careful, that picture could get him killed or locked up in a prison camp over in China.

    That picture is hands down the best 3 goggles pic KSR has posted. Stop using big words. I just had to look up what emeritus meant.

    Top ten funnies in the history of KSR.

    That photo is hilarious.
    Wish Bennett would announce and snap me out of this funk the presser has caused. Sort of kidding, but sur am gonna miss those guys. Still a little ticked at Coach for giving me seconds of hope.

    Get Hunter back to the Nutter center. We could use some help on the O-Line.

    Man that takes some cajones, they’d probably chop em off if they knew that happened!

    Even if he was caught…all he’d need to say is “Randolph Morris”…and they’d let it go. lol

    As far away as he is actuallystanding from the picture there is no way in He!! they’d ever figure out what he was doing…

  27. How long before we start the “Free Hunter!” post?

    I’VE SAID IT THE LAST TWO YEARS THAT KENTUCKY WOULD BE MISSING THE BOAT IF THEY DID’NT TRY TO HIRE COACH FULMER! WHO WOULD RATHER TAKE A TEAM ON THE FIELD AGAINST TENNESSEE THAN HIM? MAYBE THEN WE WOULD’NT BE EMBARRASSED BY ALMOST EVERY OTHER SEC TEAM…KENTUCKY IS ALWAYS SATISFIED WITH MEDIOCRITY ! UNTIL WE HIRE SOMEONE WITH A PROVEN TRACK RECORD KENTUCKY WILL ALWAYS BE A DOORMAT OF THE SEC. KENTUCKY BEAT TENNESSEE LAST YEAR ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE DOWN MORE THAN THEY HAVE BEEN IN 20 PLUS YEARS. THE FANS AT KENTUCKY DESERVE MORE THAN WHAT THEY HAVE PAID FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS.

    Not too good when you are hoping to rely on a kid who might get his grades in order. I guess he needs to hit the “bookies” harder.
