Sam Malone Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast


No, that’s not Michael Porter in that photo you see above. That is Sam Malone, one piece of the nation’s #1 recruiting class that’ll be taking the court this fall, and he wants the afternoon notes and podcast. He looks huge in that photo so I’ll oblige.

— I’m writing this from the KSR satellite office on Broadway in Nashville. I got into town at about 6:00 last night and saw a couple UK fans at dinner. The crowd is slowly picking up this afternoon as I’m seeing more and more identical UK Nike Elite golf shirts walking the streets. The downtown bars and restaurants should be packed with fans pretty soon. I can’t say the same for the stadium.

— Right now Kentucky is a 17-point favorite for the game. I like it.

— Don’t forget the Cat-Walk at the East Service Gate off Second Street at 6:15 CT. It’s your first chance of the year to give Bookie Cobbins a high-five. #winning

Dave Neal and Andre Ware will be on the microphones tonight. 9:15 ET. ESPN U. Again, that’s 9:15 Eastern time on ESPN U.

— While you were driving to Nashville, Nazr Mohammed, Rajon Rondo, and DeMarcus Cousins played a couple pickup games at UK this afternoon. How cool is it seeing Rondo hanging out at UK all summer? Glad to have him back. Same goes for Nazr and DeMarcus, although it’s not as surprising to see them on campus. Nazr is just up the street in Louisville and DeMarcus is, well, DeMarcus.

— Ford F-150 is the official truck of UK Athletics. UK announced the partnership this morning with an official press release. Yawn.

— Here’s your podcast. Ryan Lemond joined Matt for a whole bunch of football talk in the last show before the football season kicks off.

— 6 hours. #RISE

    those shorts look ridiculous on him. seriously, when are the shorts going to get up above the knee? you can only look good in a uniform like that if you are very tall and thin.
    come on cal…you’ve been money on everything so far. give us some better shorts to work with.

    If I had a pocketful of spittens, I wouldn’t give one of ’em.

    I wonder if Sam brought the “babe kit” to help pull in the ladies?

    Haven’t been on KSR as much as usual the past few days, so maybe I missed it, but do we know anything about the actual basketball abilities of these two walk-ons? Recruited by anyone? Even JC or Div II schools? High school stats? Anything other than their families are friends with Cal?

    It looks as if ESPN3 will be streaming the game as well.

    How a testicle never made its way out of one of those old shorts, I’ll never know. You gotta think Wilt had an issue.

    #11-i didn’t say just below the sack…i said above the knee. big difference. like what uk wore in the mid to late 90’s. not 80’s d-bag.

    Somebody better ask this dude if he can play football. He looks like a much better athlete than most of the guys Joker puts out on the field (except Ryan Tydlacka of course).
