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

PHOTOS: Nick Saban-sanity


The legend around here is that Nick Saban doesn’t walk, he glides. Alabama fans have packed the Wynfrey Hotel lobby for a mere glimpse of the championship coach and trust me, they feel rewarded when he “glides” by for approximately 1.5 seconds. I camped out on top of the Escalator of Disappointment waiting for him to enter Radio Row, and once he did, quickly jumped on and took this Instagram video.

See? He moves so fast I couldn’t even get him in the shot. From there, I went to Radio Row, where he was doing an interview, and practically draped myself over another radio show in progress to get this shot:


Media Days is indeed a circus, and he’s the ringmaster.

The crowd at the bottom of the Escalator of Disappointment. They were not impressed with me.




The championship ring hat takes a break.


Shocked there isn’t a UK/UofL version of this shirt.

And with that, I exit this crazy, crazy stage. I’ll have a final recap for you tonight when I get back to Nashville.

    I have that shirt. The back the says about 65 miles and 5 National Championships. Funny thing is I purchased it before UK and UL won their most recent championships. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to wear it anymore after we won the ship… Thanks a lot Louisville

    I can relate to why other fans hate BBN. We are comparable to Alabama football fans and I can’t stand to listen to them.

    there is a UK-UL version of that shirt .. I hate when this site makes statements without knowing the truth .. I know this is just a t-shirt but you guys do it ALL THE TIME ! You write stuff without having any idea if its true or not … its called ‘research’ ..

    There already IS a tshirt just like that for UK-UofL. I can’t believe you don’t have the ability to check FACTS before posting this stuff! I mean, that is simple investigative reporting, how hard can it be? This site is seriously getting WORSE by the day. TSHIRT FACTS NOT LIES IDIOTS

    #8 & 9: this type of thing iritates me as well. As far as the Alabama – Auburn rivalry goes I was at the SEC tourney at the Ga Dome the spring after Auburn was kept out of the championship contention when they were undefeated. Some Bama fans were selling shirts with rings on them saying “ok Auburn, if you’ll stop your crying, we’ll give you one of ours!” I asked the guy how much because I knew someone back home who might like it. He asked the guy who owned the shirts and said I had a Tide fan back home and said $15.00. When I told him no, it was for an Auburn fan, he started cracking up & gave it to me free! Those folks truely HATE each other!!!

    It amazes me how stupid some people are. They are too busy trying to correct KSR writers to even get the joke. It’s sarcasm and its brilliant. I really try to stay positive on here, but come one people!!! Do you have any ideal what this website was started on and made it soooo popular?? THE MOST RIDICULOUS MANNER POSSIBLE !! Great job Tyler Thompson even if most who read it this post don’t get it. I do
