Remember that time Jerry Tipton interviewed Jesse Jackson?

Jesse Jackson is in Rupp Arena tonight to support his Aggies from North Carolina A&T and Jerry Tipton caught up with him before the game to talk about whatever they would talk about.

Jackson’s alma mater is down 17 right now but I’m feeling a comeback.

Go Aggies.

    Did he bring Jr. with him?

    I’m guessing that JJ enjoyed his interview with Allie Leforce slightly more than this one.

    Junior’s in jail with his wife. Amazing how liberal democrats who are so compassionate with taxpayer dollars decide it’s ok to keep bundles of those dollars for themselves.

    Jesse said he believed the most important goal for student athletes was getting a college degree, “…not this one and done stuff.”

    Maybe he was just expressing support for Coach Cal’s and the University’s stance on the subject, and that would be great, but it felt more like he was taking a shot at Kentucky.

    If anyone deserves to be mascot photo bombed, it’s Jerry Tipton.

    Two of the most vile and disgusting human beings ever to walk the earth in one picture….although one has mastered the art of fathering children out of wedlock, lying about where you were when mlk was shot, race baiting, and corporate shakedowns…the other is just a pos…

    Wow, would rather be locked in a room with Bobby Knight and Billy G! At least booze would be available.

    Tomorrow I hope to go into detail as to why the loss to Robert Morris is a good thing and how the signing of Julius Randle does not bode well for Kentucky.

    Did you really have to acknowledge these two assholes? There were 20,000 people in the arena, and these two are the ones you post a picture of?

    That’s hilarious. Make fun of someone for actually doing the work to get a quote instead of just re-quoting someone else’s work. Which is pretty much how KSR has been operating post-Jones. Read Google Alerts. Write poorly written comments about them. Find Google image. Publish crappy post.

    I wonder if Tipton had his “white wine muscles” and ask if Jackson’s son paid for his tickets with campaign money?

    If there are two things I’ll always remember is (1) Jessie saying Obama wasn’t, and never will be President material….(2) Jessie saying this is the greatest day in history when Obama was elected….yeah JJ should get a lifetime pass to visit his son in jail.

    Eventually all turds end up floating side by side.

    Jerry Tipton has done more to harm the Herald Leader (it’s reader base, bottom line, & credibility) than any single writer in the history of the paper. And yes, I am including

    Jessie Jackson has done more to harm black people than he has ever done to help (in the realm of public perception – of intelligent people).

    Neither has produced gold of any kind and both continue to leave skid marks on the profession in which they find themselves in (harming the credibility of real people with positive ideas worth investing in).

    If you want to read something funny – or clueless – check out this direct quote from David Climer’s article on the ABCs of the SEC Tournament from the March 13th Tennessean. “T — Tipton, as in Jerry. For the last 31 years, he has chronicled all things ’Cat for the Lexington Herald-Leader. Five coaches have come and gone but Tipton keeps writing ’em like he sees ’em. There’s no better beat writer in college sports.”
