r/Wildcats

If you’ve never been to reddit.com, for the love of Cthulhu, don’t go now.  It’s a never-ending black hole that will soak up every last second of free time you have, ruin your academic/working life, and only give you pictures of cats in return.

If you have been already, though, then you know that reddit is basically a user-driven, submission-based site that people can tailor to suit their own needs.  Popular stuff gets “upvoted,” and goes to the top of the heap to be viewed by everybody; unpopular stuff gets “downvoted into oblivion.”  Also, for savvy veterans, there are subreddits, or highly specialized realms of information where people of a particular common interest come to talk about, and submit links of, things they like.

Yesterday, as I was studying Constitutional law looking at pictures of cats, I discovered r/Wildcats.

Overall, it looks like a great place to show off that elaborate ping-pong table you decorated with all the current UK players’ jerseys.  Or that video of your grandma shouting vulgar obscenities at Malcom White after he tried to throw the People’s Elbow on Anthony Davis.  Heck, even your step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve the perfect Flat Top can find a perfect home there.  Also, the comment system is designed to foster chains of conversations, instead of isolated instances.  That way, you can clearly respond to one another when you’re fighting about which of you is the bigger Kentucky fan (and remember, we’re all winners).

What’s more, they have a list of Kentucky sports blogs to visit on their page:

Hey!  There at the top!  That’s us!  It’s clear that the moderators of r/Wildcats have good taste.  Don’t think we don’t appreciate it.

So, if you want to head over there yourself and start commenting on and submitting items in an ultimately vain attempt to gain karma, check it out here.  Be careful, though.  There are corners of reddit that you don’t want to visit.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you want more generalized college basketball, then that’s available too.  But really, start with this Kentucky subreddit.  It’s only fitting that a website so infatuated with cats has a special place for our Wildcats.

 

Also, because I promised it, here you go ‘ohhsnaps’. Instant karma.

    r/collegebasketball and r/NBA are good too. WAY better than your typical sports message board

    Props to Corey for following through with the shout out for that guy.

    Also, stay away from r/atheism and r/politics. Regardless of your beliefs, they’re freaking awful.

    r/spacedicks, stay away.

    3. Don’t blame Corey for your own shortcomings.

    I knew you were a Redditor, but I didn’t know you were going to make a Reddit post :o. R/collegebasketball is a great community.

    I just pictured an army of old people writing nasty letters to Matt after staring at the front page of reddit in confusion and horror for an hour.

    Anyway, r/collegebasketball is my favorite (non KSR) source for basketball talk and news. Big UK community there too.

    Reddit has now officially been introduced to KSR. This could either be really good or really bad.

    This is going to sound dickish, but there are some people who comment here that I wish would stay away from r/wildcats or r/collegebasketball.

    If you’re going to bother with internet madness you might as well go all in and go to 4chan’s /b/ page. Check your soul at the door.

    r/collegebasketball is my absolute favorite place on the net to discuss CBB.

    First rule of reddit: don’t talk about reddit.

    Seriously though. r/wildcats is nice. I believe one of the mods of CBB is actually a (former?) KSR writer, though I could be wrong about that.

    #11 I agree. Don’t go to reddit it’s a silly place

    Is it bad that this is the highest achievement of my life thus far?

    what does ‘good taste’ have to do with ksr being selected??

    Ha. I saw where you told ohhsnaps that you’d give him a shoutout. I grant you 10,000 points of karma for that.

    Sitting in the room with the moderator of r/Wildcats makes me feel special. Thanks for the nod in his direction KSR.
