Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Saturday Morning Links

Good morning, friends. I am currently writing to you from the sunny state of Florida, where there are three types of people – retired yankees, relocated southerners, and third-generation Floridians. One of these is scary breed of folks: you decide. Anyways, we awake to (not surprisingly) a morning of not much news. Let’s check it out with some AM linkage:

– Last night, the Indiana boys All-Star team beat the ever-living tar out of the Kentucky All-Stars, 114-60. That’s a 54-point loss. FIFTY-FOUR.  Indiana has dominated of late (having won 10 in a row and 17 of the last 18 games), but this game clearly got out of hand. UK-commit Derek Willis led Kentucky with 18 points.

– On a brighter note for the Bluegrass state, the Kentucky girls All-Star topped the Indiana All-Stars, 84-78. UK-bound Ms. Basketball Makayla Epps put up 17 points and 10 assists. However  it was Ashton Feldhaus who sealed the deal for the girls with a late three. Neither of these All-Star games mean much, but I hate losing to Indiana in anything.

– A little well-timed shameless self-promotion: The band I manage, Houndmouth just released their album From the Hills Below the City and also played Conan last week. Do with that what you will.

– The C-J’s Ben Roberts penned (er…keyboarded?) a piece claiming that now that UK’s  2014 football class is on America’s radar, rivals will come hard trying to flip commitments.  That’s a valid point, and we should all suit up for war against rivals temper our expectations should kids choose to go elsewhere. Ah, screw it – too late – I am already too excited about the future.

– But no worries. Stoops never quits. Coach Stoops will be at powerhouse school Cardinal Mooney’s Camp of Champions, along with his brothers, in early July. This camp and school are a big deal for fostering that Ohio recruiting pipeline.

– Did you celebrate National Bourbon Day yesterday? Well, this guy (Rep. Andy Barr) did.

    Why is KY HS basketball so weak? It all starts with youth programs which I don’t think Kentucky does a great job at. So frustrating!

    Glad to see you got Mitch from Dazed & Confused on the bass and he still fits into the same clothes from back then.

    #3 I was surprised they didn’t post it either. He does have UK in his top 5. I had to go to this twitter account to get the information.

    6. I also had to do that. I guess they’d rather talk about Bourban.

    Why is there so much “flipping commits” in football? Hardly hear of it at all in basketball

    Houndmouth is awesome, new album is great. Glad a local band is moving up. But I’m pretty sure their drummer is a filthy card. But I also think he is the least talented.

    Picked up the Houndmouth album yesterday and it’s good. Along the lines of Ryan Adams & Wilco.

    #10, I’m sure most 18 year olds don’t want to hear from some old fool like me, but I do try to tweet them to encourage them to stay with their commitment.

    Sorry to continue, but I also think that Drew Barker is working really hard to get this class connected so that they will have a harder time “leaving” their friends.

    Good song. I like seeing the cute girl in the band do something besides play bass and be cute.

    KSR should debate ending the Ky-Indiana disaster

    Surprised PayPal Cal hasn’t come in to end Big Brother’s dominance in the IN-KY series. I thought y’all were a basketball state?

    Didn’t Ryan Harrow’s parents trust Calipari?

    kadizkat- you sound like a perfectly logically fan, so your already doing your part.

    Has nothing to do with being a basketball state. Basically, Indiana has southeast chicago(gary), indianapolis,muncie and fort wayne to pool from. Ky. has louisville, lex and the rest rural areas. Really about 4-8 million more population base and inner city. No excuses just facts.
