Stadium Frame’s Final Four Print Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Have you heard about this great deal at Final4Prints.com??? Get this… The celebration is over but it can live on forever inside your home or office with this Final Four print from Stadium Frame. The 34×24 framed photo is matted with coins and features a shot of the Superdome court just after the final buzzer sounded to end Kentucky’s magical 2011-12 season. Go to www.Final4Prints.com to purchase the print you see here, or pick out another print or variation of this one from Stadium Frame.

— We’ll kick things off this afternoon with a photo bomb at NBA Rookie Photo Day, courtesy of Terrence Jones.

The real T. Jones taught Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall about Kentucky while they were trying to take a Tar Heel-only shot. Harrison Barnes doesn’t look pleased.

** Matt snuck this in on me in an earlier post. I’m leaving it up because picking on UNC never gets old. **

— In other Chapel Hill news, Julius Peppers donated $250,000 to the University of North Carolina for scholarships. The school said Monday that Peppers’ donation goes to a fund that supports African-American students. Interesting.

— UK announced today that you can start lining up at Memorial Coliseum at 7:00 am on Wednesday, September 19th for Big Blue Madness tickets and not a minute earlier. Tickets will be distributed September 22 at 7:00 am at the Memorial Coliseum ticket windows on Euclid Avenue. The university will pass out those numbered vouchers Friday morning.

— The Turkish National basketball team’s technical coordinator believes Enes Kanter forgot how to play basketball. He said, “(Enes) is a great talent and we miss him a lot. He decided not to join us but honestly, he needs us more than we need him. He has not played or trained with us in the past three years.” He continued, “America is the perfect place to lose your head. Firstly, because the coaches do not understand. In the NBA, there are just three or four coaches who have been there for 100 years, making billions and winning trophies. Others are weak.” And then, “Kanter has forgotten how to play basketball. He will never be a center but he always starts with his back to the basket.”

Wow. Tell us how you really feel.

— We’ll have plenty of football notes once practice concludes. Rashawn and Nick will be by later today with reports from Max Smith’s second day as starting quarterback. Stick around, if you will.

— Here’s the podcast again…

    Why would you post a picture and then post the SAME picture two posts later. Do you think we are stupid or blind?

    Lining up for tickets to what??????????????????

    It is quite obvious that American basketball needs to be taking advice from the Turks, considering all those Gold medals that are hanging on display in Instanbul. Silly Americans…

    Drew, you may need to stop multi tasking. So stop thinking when you type / submit your next post.

    This Photo was just posted (scroll down) and you did not explain what the tickets are for. Oh boy…

    8…It would help nowadays to clarify. Hell, with Coach Cal lining up games…we could be having a game against the olympic team the first of October.

    You all complained about having the photo 2 posts below but did not bother to look further down the page to see about Midnight Madness….get with it people!



  13. Blue Mist
    2:39 pm August 21, 2012 Permalink

    12…Yes, we could have done that. But typically one would think (umm-umm) that a writer would introduce any subject he/she is talking about.

    Again, with Cal aboard…you could scroll down further and perhaqps see this was also tickets for the alumni game as an example. Readers shouldn’t have to scroll down and connect dots. damn.

    I could care less about the 2 posts back to back…im just pissed I had to look at that stadium frame picture again…C’mon man…enough with that thing

    Harrison Barnes looks like he wants to rip off Terrence’s face.

    15, the stadium frame is like the “one” relative that walks in the room at a family get together and everyone looks down or changes the subject. But it’s always there, lurking and won’t go away.

    How great are the faces of the unc guys? You know they’re think’n – “damn, he got us again.”

    Did someone say that UK was playing the ’12 Olympic Team? Haha, #10, that’s how rumors get started. Is that you, Cal?

    I seriously can’t get enough of that pic. Henson seems to think it’s amusing at best. Marshall and Barnes look pissed. AWESOME!!

    No worries. At this rate, it will be posted every other post by KSR.

    2:54 pm August 21, 2012 Permalink

    yeah 12 people will find anything to complain about on here. it’s exhausting. Did you all really not know he meant Big Blue Madness? Yes I get that the post is “incomplete” but really, you all knew the answer and just needed something to pick on.



  25. Kevin
    2:55 pm August 21, 2012 Permalink

    –and it doesn’t help to be a Tar heel these days. That pic tells a lot in the expressions by those three and (TJ the champion) is more sour grapes for them to chew on along with the academic black eye all over the news.



  26. Kevin
    2:59 pm August 21, 2012 Permalink

    24, what about the people who don’t come on here that often or a first time person. This post would make them think KSR is really out in left field. I just think that being silly is a good thing kSR does -but somethting like this (2 photos back to back and not explaining the tickets) is just bad and can ruin the product KSR is trying to produce. Many of us feel that way and are expressing it instead of swallowing the cool aid and pretend nothing is wrong.

    1 – 27…

    (1) I’m the only one on the site today and didn’t see Matt slide that post in unexpectedly earlier while I was writing about the bankrupt guy. Calm down now. There are bigger problems in the world.

    (2) My bad on not clarifying it’s Big Blue Madness tickets, but no one can pretend like they didn’t know what I’m talking about. Sorry, this was written while eating pasta on my lunch break.

    (3) Have you seen these new Stadium Frame prints? They’re really nice.

    (4) Louisville sucks

    Is the Peppers new a joke or for real? It’s funny either way.

    @26, Honestly, how many UK events are there that people line up/camp out for a couple
    days to get tickets? I haven’t read any of the posts below this and I knew he was referring
    to Big Blue Madness. If people can’t figure that out then in the words of Pearl Jam “This is not for you”

    Lets see here,,,,the Turkish team coordinator makes how much ?? Enes is making how much ??? Figured out pretty quick Enes does not need the Turkish team. Yep,,,I think Enes will do just fine here in the states.

    New found respect for Henson. At least he has a sense of humor. i’ve lost some respect for Barnes (who is just thinking, “Dang-it. I could have gone to KentuckY, too.”). As for the other guy no change in…who is he?

    Keep up the good work Drew, most of us appreciate you.
