Let’s Talk Football (Thursday Show Thread)

After what Matt wrote here on the site last night, I’m sure a lot of people will want to call in and offer up even more coaching suggestions. Unfortunately, the future of the program is the hot topic right now, not the South Carolina game that is only two days away.

Join in on the discussion by calling (502) 571-1080.

    Actually I’d love to see Petrino come to UK even though it would only be for a few years. It would be like we traded coaches except Bobby has better taste in his women he’d hook up with.

    I will bet you anything u want that Tennessee will pursue Bobby Petrino after the season (or before possibly) and we will miss the boat again.. Just like we did last year with Leach… It’s not Mitch Barnharts fault anymore than it is mine…. Just facts of life.. We will get another so called up and comer coach who will flop out and we will be having these discussions until the proverbial cows come home.. But hey, on another note… How bout them basketball Wildcats???

    This just in from good ol Eli

    “Colleagues and Students,

    Each year, a rite of fall on our campus is tailgating at football games. Fortunately, the vast majority of people who participate in these activities, including our students, celebrate responsibly and appropriately.

    That atmosphere — part of what makes our campus so special — is something we all want to promote.

    But two weeks ago, before and after the game with Western Kentucky University, a small number of people acted in a manner that seriously threatened the safety of those around them and of police and other safety officials who are there to protect us all.

    Such behavior will not be tolerated.

    As a result, the following steps are being taken this weekend during the game against the University of South Carolina:

    · There will be an increased police, athletics and student affairs presence in the areas that were negatively impacted two weeks ago — the non-reserved tailgate space along Cooper Drive between Sports Center Drive and University Drive.

    · No alcohol will be allowed in that area. Police and state alcohol beverage control officials will be citing people who serve or use alcohol in that area.

    · No DJs or bands will be allowed to set up in this area as well.

    · Individuals or student organizations that promote drinking or that utilize DJs and bands in this area will be subject to disciplinary actions by our Dean of Students Office that could, ultimately, impact their organizational status.

    We want people to attend games. We want all of you to tailgate and enjoy each other’s company in a responsible fashion. But we will not allow actions and behaviors that threaten the safety of our students, our fans or of officials who are present to protect everyone.

    Thank you for your help and cooperation in ensuring that everyone at our games is assured of a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience.

    Eli Capilouto
    President
    University of Kentucky”

    Eli should realize that containing the situation like Cooper Drive is better than making that crowd go elsewhere. Now rather than having a number of incidents in one contained area, there will be the same number, spread out all over the campus. What they are trying to do never works, and it will probably have a negative affect.



  66. I'll be honest with you
    10:38 am September 27, 2012 Permalink

    61 – This doesn’t end tailgating by any means, but this is targeted towards a specific area that included a lot students (frats/sorority). I don’t think it changes anything for the general tailgaters in the parking lots and outside of this area.

    69 – I agree and am just saying that this won’t really change anything related to tailgating and those folks will just find some other place to gather. It sounds like any “enforcement” is being limited to that specific area and folks know that now so they will adjust.

    I was in Knoxville last week for a friend’s birthday, and UT’s band puts on an incredible show before the game and during halftime. I normally ignore the bands everywhere, but UT’s was great. It was better than that terrible game they played against Akron. I wish we could make the pregame show the big event and tradition like other schools have. Auburn, UT, Colorado, Ohio St. all have huge pregame traditions, but people actually want to watch the games there.

    #78 You may have just made my point by accident. “Disperse that crowd of drunken heathens.”

    They don’t stop getting drunk, they just get dispersed. Contain the chaos and try to fix it. Don’t freak out and let it spread all over the rest of the tailgate area. Which is what will happen.

    I went to a uk home football game last year, it was one of the worse college football experience i have ever been to. There was no energy in the fans and the band….well they was what i would classify as a band but they was awful. If they want to change and be one of the big boys in the SEC they got to get home field advantage up. There is no way they should lose to wku at home, I can understand them losing to a team like USC or Florida at home. Hopefully with a new coach they will change the little things to make it feel like a home football game. I am all for them playing Waka Flocka lil wayne, MKG whatever it takes to get the people into the game.

    #96 I understand that he isn’t their friend. You don’t have to go through college sober to get a good job. Myself, and plenty of others I know are proof. They won’t quite drinking, they won’t just say oh you’re right Eli. They will spread to other areas and now rather than focusing on controlling one area, you have cops trying to contain multiple areas.

    Let the kids have their fun, and come down harder on the people that cause issues. Here’s the thing, college kids get tired of fights breaking out and tons of police coming in all the time. Increased cops would have been enough to fix the situation. The college needed to do something, but like most institutions, it went way beyond the needed reaction.

    Matt,
    Ryan is on point about the marching band! I think a high school/college marching band is the dumbest thing on earth. All they do is either play bad music or play good music badly.

    Watching the marching band at the half time of the football games is misery. NO ONE enjoys it. NO ONE!! It is not just non-entertaining, it is laughable to watch these poor kids. They have to toss in a girl in a bathing suit throwing fire just to make it watchable.
    Not to mention the uniforms! What is that all about? There is no where else on earth where those uniforms are expectable. That only adds to the marching band’s ridiculousness.
    We don’t need the marching band during the game. That is why God invented speakers.
    Just because every school has a marching band doesn’t make it right. Every one also used to think the world was flat. Some things are just wrong. If we woke up tomorrow and the marching band was wiped out, no one would notice for at least haft the season.

    Don’t say Ryan is ” obviously wrong” just because he has a different opinion than you.

Of course team has to give crowd something to stay excited about but definitely band needs to help Marching around stadium 1 hr. before kickoff does nothing to create an exciting atmosphere.

    Hey Matt,

    I was a member of marching bands for the better part of a decade. I was in the Morehead State Martching band for 2 years. Acoustically, the closer you are to the band, the less you hear, other than the drums. The brass instruments project their sound directly forward. The sound does bounce off the opposite side of the stadium, but that depends on how many people are occupying the seats, bodies absorb the sound waves.

    I am, by no means an audio engineer, but I was in band from 7th grade to my 2nd year of college.

    The most important thing is the design of the stadium, and if the band is miced or not. At MSU, our stadium was great for our sound. The visitors side was rarely full, so nearly 100% of our sound bounced back for the home side to hear.

    I have personally heard UK’s marching band and the basketball pep band. They are both top notch bands, one of the best in the country. Of course the song selection can get weird, every band lays an egg with song selection from time to time.
