Some Friday notes

freedom-hall-uk

It’s getting late, I’m on a mini vacation and my chances of getting a delicate embrace from my wife are plummeting by the blogging second, so let’s make some quick work of this.  Some notes for you, my dear friends…

 – As is the case when most teams play the conference leader on the road, Kentucky is favored by 7.5 points against South Carolina.  For those of you driving to the game, the over/under on how many times you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of Deliverance is significantly higher.  Don’t stop the car.  Just hold it or use a Gatorade bottle.

– If you’re heading to the game, you can also look forward to the biggest collection of camo-clad fans on the planet.  The maroon-black-white color pallete doesn’t really seem to be the most ideal gear for hunting or tracking down terrorists, but it does lend itself well to making sure no one eye balls your girl when you’re sharing a foot-long at the Circle K.  You might think the love is a mystery, but I think it’s pretty obvious.

– Congratulations on an excellent debut from Not Jerry Tipton.  Most of you seemed to enjoy it and that makes me so happy, it almost makes up for my likely miss on a loving embrace tonight.  But, I’m equally pleased by those of you who had absolutely no idea what was going on and felt the need to tell us how horrible the site is now (a theme as true to the KSR roots as any).  Word of advice for you to hold close going forward:  if something not written by BTI makes you angry enough to punch a wall, it’s over your head.  Just wait until 10 the next morning.  And for the last time, we know it’s not “escape goat”.  Thank you.

– On a more positive and straight-forward note, you can vote for Coach Cal in the Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge, which, ironically has an end date in March.  The winning coach gets $10,000 donated to their charity by ESPN (it was the Ron Franklin sexual harassment attorney retainer fee, no longer needed).  Cal represents Samaritan’s Feet.

 – We’ll do this like Daniel Tosh.  Put 20 seconds on the board.  Make as many jokes about this as you can.  Go.

 – Finally, if you missed it this morning, Matt and Zach were on the radio again and talked about some things related to sports, Drew Franklin and the jorts guy with the gun.  Check it out below.

 

That’s it for now.  Make sure you stop back by for goodness all day from a writer to be named later and a Live Blog at 5:30.  In the meantime, can someone please call Doc Brown?  We’re getting season tickets to the Rays.  Terrible.  Just terrible.  Someone will see you in a few…

    Well, you know what they say about the seventh-and-a-half floor: “Low overhead, my boy!”

    Headline of Der WolfPack Magazine: Kevin Nash and Others Overcomed by Young Boy.

    That is so wrong, it has to be right.

    well im still upset with our play against bama. i no we r young and going to make dumb mistakes, but we did some of the dumbest mistakes and more than once. tht was the most i have ever seen. our defense was really not focused. im hopin we bounce back tomorrow and stomp sc at sc. remember they beat us last year at sc and everyone says we were the best team. so its going to be a big game and we need this win. im hopin the cats can just change a few things to get this team perfect and get the #8 banner. i love my cats no matter what. go big blue

    I have a bone to pick with my mother who always told me to “sprint as fast as you can” whenever in the presence of wolves. Then again, I think she was speaking of Swedish wolves.

Oh yeah, Pearl is back on the sideline today…UT playing at Uconn. anyone expect a Tenneseee win since they have owned the big east this season….oddly enough..

    KSR #1 bitches. Beis, you don’t need validation from us. This site is perfectly fine. I hope the ol’ lady broke off some tail for ya last night. Hate to see a fellow man go to bed with a boner he can’t get rid of.

    Many thanks to the two females sitting courtside in this photo. Because of them, I almost thought that both Trinity and St. X were getting into the whole ‘Free Enes’ thing!

    Wasn’t Kentucky favored over Georgia and Alabama. Being favored doesn’t cause victory.
