Pictures from KSR’s trip to West Liberty

Matt, Drew, Ryan and the gang are in West Liberty this morning to raise awareness and money for the West Liberty Recovery Fund. If you haven’t heard, West Liberty was torn apart by an EF-3 tornado back in March, and much of the downtown was destroyed. Coach Cal arrived to the show via helicopter to survey the damage and brought the National Championship trophy with him. Joker Phillips called in as well to give support.

Here are some pics from an exciting morning in West Liberty:

Coach Cal just said that he will match your donations over the next 45 minutes up to $25,000. Help us make a difference.

If you’re interested in donating to the West Liberty Recovery efforts, please visit WestLibertyRecovery.com, call 606-743-1080 or go straight to their PayPal donation page. Thanks.

    This Cal guy just gets it! The guy continues to amaze me with the effort he gives this program and the people around the state. I’m not sure where he get’s the energy but I’d sure like to find what he’s got!



  6. Dear UL and IU fans, We are national champions; you are not. The end.

    In all seriousness, it’s pretty awesome that we have a coach who gets out and does things like this.

    Cal will surpass Rupp as the Greatest Kentucky coach. He transcends the game.

    What a stand up guy. Too bad the national media is only interested in smearing Cal with “anonymous sources” and not showing the countless ways he gives his time, money and energy to benefit the state and other places (Haiti)

    I love that Cal wears that ring everywhere he goes. Constantly reminding people that UK is back where it should be.

    Yall just ruined my mental picture of Rose. I always imagined her as Mags Bennett calling in with a rotary phone in one hand and a glass of apple pie in the other.

    Why does Matt always have that, “BTI is really giving it to that goat” look on his face???

    Rose looks a lot younger than I expected. She may be the funniest caller on the show.

    Just awesome of KSR and Calipari to do this for West Liberty. Big Blue Nation is awesome. Calipari is a legend and always knows what to say and do. Cal for Governor…President.

    Donated. Where is CBS when Cal does things like this? I don’t care what some of the trolls on here say, I am glad he is here, he gives back, and HE GETS IT!!!

    Apparently channel 18 had Jerry Tipton estimate the crowd when they said a couple dozen people came.

    Ahhh, sooki, sooki…Rose is much hotter (and about 30 years younger) than I imagined! I bet her husband had to fight off Saul Smith too earn the right to jump into Caney Creek with her.

    wish I coulda been there! from looking at the pics, 2 things:
    1. high schoolers are a lot younger now, than when I was in high school.
    2. 7th graders (some of them) are a lot OLDER now, than when I was in 7th grade.
    that is all

    #11. I may not have the rotary phone but I do have the apple pie, just not when I call.
