Twenty-five years ago, a kid from Apollo High School in Owensboro decided to stay in-state and play for Kentucky, launching one of the most celebrated, although fairly brief, careers in the history of the program. And just as “King Rex” started his college career off with a bang by dropping 18 points and 6 assists on Austin Peay at Rupp Arena, Chapman came out of the gate firing this week with what might be the most amusing Twitter account since Jay Bilas. Even better, he said he reads KSR and might be making an appearance on the show in the near future. So are we kissing his tail? Maybe. Don’t judge us.
This is where you insert your segue. I don’t have one. I just know that I do what I’m told and what makes me happy. And by rehashing the game played on Kentucky Sports Radio this morning, I’m able to do both. Matt and Ryan spent the second hour today asking listeners a variety of questions where the answer had to be a former UK basketball or football player. Below is who they picked. In the comments section, we want you to pick yours. It might be easy – and completely correct too – to pick Rex Chapman for all of them, but that would only make you as big of a kiss-ass as us. Do you really want that?
Without further ado, here are the questions and Matt and Ryan’s answers…
