Saying goodbye to Matt before he heads west (Tuesday Show Thread)

Matt and I will be taking off tomorrow morning for sunny California for a week-long tennis adventure at the BNP Paribas Open, so this morning’s show will be the last time you get to hear the voice from Middlesboro before the SEC Tournament. Β Ryan Lemond will be filling in as host with a number of your favorite co-hosts over the next six shows until we return.

So tune in today to hear more on Matt’s thoughts about where Kentucky basketball ends up this postseason and what he expects in the final two regular season games and the SEC tournament before he’s gone. Β He’ll also talk a little basketball recruiting and what to expect from our adventure out west.

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

Topics include:

— Julius Randle ready to announce

— Beating Georgia and Florida

— Making the NCAA tournament

— The beginning of a tennis blogging dynasty

    Looks like March 20th will be a big day for us, no matter if we’re in the tournament or not. Matt can you tell us if there’s any popular callers that has signed up for the cruise? I love the possiblity of you being on a cruise with The Truth or Big Blue Nate. 415 Days since Matt first mentioned the BCG Podcast.

    I am calling the state-wide tornado drill this morning at 10:05, the Mark Stoops air-raid warning. Yes Louisville, you’ve been warned.

    I saw Drew Franklin is going to be gone from Lexington for awhile? So he was technically leaving too?

    Okay… I may be off 2 minutes. 10:07:09 Some stations have until 10:15 to do it. It will just start as soon as KSR starts. Just wait and see.

    How about putting one of your interns on a daily rundown of who needs to win/lose one that day’s schedule to help Kentucky’s chances? It’d be nice to know who we should be rooting for (since we have so much control on the outcome). Or, UK could just beat Georgia and Florida and we don’t need to worry about it. Thanks!

    Good news with that gametime switch also is that is comes after a bye week, so you don’t have to worry about the short rest (although the game before is Bama so who knows what kind of shape they’ll be in).

    The Thursday night game became a showcase game when ESPN started opening the season every year with a Thursday night SEC game. It’s usually South Carolina every year. Probably the Spurrier effect.

    Thursday night is certainly great, but when the NFL went to a regular Thursday game last season it did take a lot of attention away from the college game. Don’t get me wrong, it’s better than the 12:30 Saturday JP/Raycom/whatever it is broadcast, but just being honest.

    I always think it is important to have a player or two from Kentucky on the team to communicate how important the program is to the fans, to relate the stories of families following the team, to provide a connection between the non-state players and the fan base. Not the most important thing in the world, but one I think helps the team and is worth a scholarship or two, especially on a team that only plays 7 or 8 players.

    I just have to step in and spill some medicine knowledge on you all. Abscesses are like walled off infections. Basically the pus gets contained in a little pocket.

    Abscesses have been known (occasionally) to spread via the lymph system and cause meningitis.

    A bigger problem is that the bacteria that gets knocked off your teeth from dental procedures gets swallowed, makes it to your blood stream, and causes sepsis. Then you die. Point. Blank. Period.

  209. Delk for 3

    My dad made a 9-hour road trip with my brother and I from Missouri to a UK game at Rupp a couple years ago. He had a toothache. He then got sick at his stomach and got really sick. He isn’t the dramatic type so we figured he was in a lot of pain, but we had tickets and we traveled on…we went to the game and he doped himself up and attended. He laid in the backseat of the car all the way home and moaned like he was dying. Called a dentist at night after we got home and turned out he had an abscessed tooth and it could’ve been fatal…had to be admitted.

    It wasn’t the worst thing. The worst thing was that Billy Clyde was our coach.

    A tooth abscess is when you get an infection on the inside of your tooth due to tooth decay. The infection causes pus and bacteria to build up inside your tooth and spread to your gums, causing a LOT of pain and swelling in the area. I *think* that’s what that last caller was trying to say–and I stress TRYING!
