    Robbery just happened in plain daylight! Tom Crean, Fred Glass, and IU just robbed IU students the chance to attend the marquee game that is Indiana and Louisville, which I believe is a great component of the overall college experience. KSR should not stand for this blatant robbery!

    I meant to note with the weather thing yesterday… WLAP has a totally different forcast then the KSR it’s different and does it right before the annoucer. Fakes are optional. I want the Sue Wylie report.

    I like Ryan’s former channel 18 co-worker forecast http://youtu.be/P69RgH6cAVo

    If you talk about paying athletes, what if we put certain percentage of money made because of their name (uniform sale, autographs, etc) into retirement funds they receive when they are old. That way players are compensated fairly (if you use the same percentage) and kids aren’t driving around beamers and buying houses while they are in college.

    Jared Carter dominated potato soup with bacon crumbles and shredded cheese, yeast rolls for dipping were optional.

    Naming of the Convention Center IE. Rupp Arena @ The Lexmark Center

    The convention where we find out the name of RUPP will be big ass fans coal friends mad mushroom RUPP Arena at the RJ Corman Lexmark Toyota center

  36. CatsFanInKnoxville

    24) My argument was the that talent gap has already closed a lot (generally agreed on by most) and the KY Effect. He didn’t buy the KY Effect. We all know it exists.

  44. UK2K

    Even if Wiggins is the best player in America, it doesn’t really matter as long as 2 or 3 of our freshman are mentioned among the nation’s very best at the end of the year. If that happens we will undoubtedly be in the position we want to be in come March.



  46. UK_JB

    I have a feeling it will be the Rupp Kroger Arena. You have to use your plus card to get in.

    Forget Rupp’s black book – boring!

    I want to see Gillispie’s black book!! THAT would be entertaining. Mixed drink recipes, Ratchet phone numbers, best places to buy Dr. Pepper and Pop Tarts, and places to hide when you know you’re about to get fired.

    Matt, with all due respect, you kind of brought it on yourself. You teased it knowing that some people have already heard the song. Everyone wants to be the first to comment on things, just look at the comments sections on the blog.



  58. Scott

    Matt, You know what “assumptions” do.

    P.S. When does the Truth ever make sense?



  59. MarkyMark
    10:29 am August 8, 2013 Permalink

    Let’s talk about the size and length of this year’s team. Our smallest starter will be 6’5″, do you think we will press pretty often with the versatility of our big men I feel like we could cause serious problems with the full court press.

    I think that IU agreeing to neutral sites series with UL is 100% proof they wanted to cancel UK series

    Last year the SEC League Mens Basketball schedule was released on Friday, August 10….has any official date been posted for release of the 2013’/2014′ SEC league Schedules?
    If timing follows last years we should be seeing something tomorrow….hoping so anyway. Any news on this topic would be appreciated.

  67. Delk for 3
    10:32 am August 8, 2013 Permalink

    59 — Knowing Cal, we will not press very much. He will want to focus on halfcourt defense with that size. He doesn’t like to give up any easy baskets and that can happen when you press.



  68. Bucky Small Hooves
    10:32 am August 8, 2013 Permalink

    IU’s campus has a strict policy against heavy cologne, line beards, and tank tops.

  70. Off to a bad start
    10:33 am August 8, 2013 Permalink

    I turned the show off today due to Matt’s constant whining. I’ll catch the recruiting news later. He needs to learn how bad it makes him sound when he does this. I’ll let Tuesday and today slide as exhaustion from Alaska and effects of the dentist but days like today are why so many people find him unlikeable.

He went a few days without going and when he returned the waitresses were flirting with him by putting a piece of cake in his face. A don’t ignore us for so long kind of thing.
