    This is John. I called in yesterday and tried to convince Matt that my score was correct from the UK UL show thread contest. I mis-spoke on the radio and gave the wrong score and he lawyered me right up. Who has never mis-spoke?
    I am certain that my score (actually it was my son’s pick, he is blind and cannot post) was the first correct answer.
    I am so certain that I will offer a $200 prize for Matt to give away on the show thread if he will take my call and prove me incorrect.
    I am not stalking Matt or his crew. I would just like to have the prize for my son.
    For now, I would like to drum up interest in my offer. I will give $200 to Matt to give away on the show thread if I am wrong.
    Here is the thread
    http://kentuckysportsradio.com/?p=109199#comments
    Let’s show Matt the power of the KSRN (KentuckySportsRadioNation) and copy and paste this post until I get an opportunity to give away $200.

    To the KSR crew: If you take my call ask me my e-mail address for verification that it is me.

    Don’t crucify me here, but, I have decided that Shabazz might not be worth the drama. He is starting to come across as a diva. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take him, but he will require extra work from Cal to get the diva out of him.

    37) You’re right, that really is the worst kept secret in town… at first I denied it because he seems to be a man of moral fiber, but I guess you never really know a person. I have heard increasing talk about his relationship with Mary Jo Perino… so I don’t know what to believe anymore because that sounds… errr… nasty. Whatever, screw it, this is why we have basketball.

    I’m pretty stoked the tour will be stopping in E-town. My only question is how the trophy will be presented and if fans will have a chance to take a picture with Coach Cal or the trophy. I am positive it will be controlled chaos at every stop and also impressed that Cal is doing this solely for BBN. Yeah…he “gets it.”

What is lost is they charge the students approx $150 per semester for athletic and building fee. Take that time 20,000 students x 2 semesters??? That is 6 million extra cash. I also would like to know if they reimburse UofL for the scholarships?

    I still see Shabbazz going to either Duke or UCLA as he has to be the main scorer and I don’t see him wanting to be 1 of 5 scorers like Cal wants his team to look like, he wants to be the 1 scoring. Duke will let him and he’d get great coverage there so that’s where I’m leaning.

    Then they need to allow them to raise funds like UL and be able to issue their own bonds.

    Confidence, like AIDS, is a scary word.

    I think it has very little to do with what is good for the state. It’s a matter of legislators not wanting to give up their power.

    Who cares about football at UK. Even if they had shit tons of money they would still suck, its just how UK football is.

    If Shabazz chooses UCLA it’s only because of clothes Adidas over Nike. Sean John (p-diddy) over Rocawear (Jay Z). Come over (Howland) over Italian Mafia gelled sid-part (Cal). Dude needs some fashion sense.

    John,

    Ur beating a dead horse. Matt Jones is an egotistical douche bag. He wont admit that he’s wrong about the putrid puke commie Obama, then do you really expect he’ll admit he’s wrong about your issue ? Best thing you can do is bad mouth him on the other call in shows and the ESPN thread and other national media. He HATES that and is such a mama’s boy that he can’t take criticism unless its from her.

    Wow Ryan, to refer anything about a UK Fball team as “worst ever” really makes confidence a scary word…
