Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Rex Chapman’s Newsless News and Views

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…

Ryan: Kyle Macy or Ramel Bradley

Make sure you make your picks below.  Matt will be joined by Mike Pratt, who is painfully absent on this list, in the morning for Kentucky Sports Radio at 10am on Talk Radio 1080.  The best answers here will make it on the show tomorrow.  Or not.  Either way, you’ll finally get to tell the world that you wish that Nate Knight got your wife pregnant.  See you in a few…

    Patrick Patterson fights the zombies. Dicky Lyons cooks the meal if I want something Cajan. Randall Cobb would save me from a burning building, being Superman on the football field and all. Can’t believe he hadn’t got a mention yet.

    Sorry, but this had to be the worst segment ever on KSR. When they started talking about which player’s sperm… I immediately shut my laptop and quit listening. Just awful.

    it’s not UK related, but I’d trust Gene Simmons with my ol’ lady.

    -who would I want to help me aid n abet crime? Carruth (also to buy smoke)
    -who would I not want to give me gambling advice? Antoine Walker
    -who would i want to punch in the face? jerry tipton
    -who would I want to be in a 3 some with? trick question. that’s gay. correct answer is 2 hot brunettes with big breasts.

    Who would you want to take a road trip with?
    -Perry Stevenson: Seemed like a great guy and has a lot of experience traveling.

    Who do you want to fix your iPad?
    -I will defend the caller on the show and also go with John Calipari. With one tweet, Cal could get Steve Jobs AND the owner of texas roadhouse on the scene. The iPad gets fixed while everyone enjoys a free steak dinner. Before you know it, frozen yogurt shops across Lexington will also serve as iPad repair centers.

    Tutor- Mark Pope (Rhodes Scholar candidate)
    First Pitch- Richard Madison
    Talk to cops- Cal or Richie either way we ain’t getting a ticket
    Save from a burning building- Cal he does more good for the community AND he can reload
    Cook a meal- LaVon Williams (home ec major as I recall)
    Trust to loan money too- Wall he’s good for it I’m sure not that I could loan him much
    Bodyguard- Magliore
    Road trip- Dotson, Jason Parker, Carruth or any other like minded guys (it’s 420 somewhere)

    Complete my foursome in Jaccob Tamme’s Swings for Soldiers Event- Bobby Perry, Mark Krebs, Kyle Macy

    Jamal Mashburn can manage my money (or little known walk-on Jeff Ginnan). Bearup’s a little too slimy.
