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

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.

— If you didn’t see it below, ESPN released a statement on their decision to put Bobby Knight on SEC games despite his blatant bias against Kentucky and John Calipari. The statement didn’t say much other than that Bobby and Rece Davis, his future partner, work well together and that they’re always striving to provide a “fresh perspective” on their broadcasts. If by “fresh” they mean falling asleep into their solo cup of bourbon while muttering insults about “one-and-done”s and the band playing too loudly, they nailed it.

— Knight, the picture of integrity and honor in college basketball, also made news today when he put his three National Championship rings, a sports coat and a warmup jacket up for auction. Why? To raise money for his grandchildren’s education. Also, they were taking up space in the attic:

“I’ve got stuff I didn’t even know I had,” Knight said. “I don’t put anything up in the house. If you came into the house you would think I was a mailman. And I don’t even wear rings.”

Things Knight also doesn’t do: wear party hats, stay up past 8:30 p.m. or have fun. I fully expect Pete Thamel and Dan Dakich to get in a bidding war.

— You know what analyst I do love? Charles Barkley. The Round Mound of Rebound appeared on a radio show in Birmingham this morning, and true to form, dropped several awesome stories. On the craziest thing he’s ever signed: “One time in Flagstaff this girl said would you sign my inner thigh? I said, ‘What?’ She said, ‘No, I’m serious,’ she pulls up her skirt and I said, ‘If you have the stones to do it I’ll do it.’ I look on the other side (of her thigh) and Dan Majerle has already signed it! That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever signed.” Here’s the full audio if you’re really bored.

— Rashawn has a full recap of football practice below, but to sum up, expect more of the Jalen Whiltow/Morgan Newton combo at QB on Saturday. Randy Sanders told reporters that they can’t count on Patrick Towles being ready for Georgia (he dressed but did not participate in practice today), so they have to find a way to utilize Newton’s experience. Just no more Wildcat for him, for the love of God.

— Aaron Rodgers had some kind words for Randall Cobb during an interview with ESPN Milwaukee today: “He will probably going to go down as one of the better picks of Ted Thompson’s career, if not the best. He came in last year very respectful and classy, but with that edge that ‘I belong here.'” Would you expect any less from Golden Eyes?

— Don’t forget: tickets for Kentucky’s first five home men’s basketball games will go on sale TODAY AT 6:00 p.m. That’s Kentucky’s two exhibition games (Northwood, Nov. 1 and Transylvania, Nov. 5) and first three regular season home games (Lafayette, Nov. 16; Morehead State, Nov. 21; Long Island, Nov. 23). Tickets will first be available online at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Any tickets remaining after Tuesday evening’s sale will also be available to purchase through the UK Ticket Office on Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. — 4:00 p.m. Tickets made available are from the unsold student ticket allotment. Lower level tickets (based upon availability) will be $50 each and upper level tickets will be $42 each.

Also, tickets for the Blue-White Scrimmage at Rupp Arena on October 24th are still available. Lower level tickets are $10 each and upper level tickets are $5 each. Scrimmage tickets may be purchased through the UK Ticket Office (800.928.2287), Rupp Arena Box Office (859.233.3535) and Ticketmaster (800.745.3000). Fans may also obtain scrimmage tickets online at www.ticketmaster.com or at statewide Ticketmaster outlets.

— Finally, KSR writer Nick Roush has lost his dog, Jagger. He’s 12 weeks old and was last seen around the corner of Westwood and Elizabeth Street yesterday at noon. If you see him, please contact @RoushKSR.

Who looks older: John Calipari or Ryan Lemond? Find out what the masses think on today’s podcast…

    Mailmen don’t own much stuff? Does that make sense to anyone?

    I have forgotten more than you know about basketball, Rat Face. Quit being butt hurt that I came on your show and made Matty Jones my b!tch. Do something with that hair too. You look like a lesbian.

    In 2003 tickets were 22 lower 17 upper. I understand it’s a decade later, but it’s ridiculous to exploit UK fans. If we weren’t any good or didn’t have such a tradition prices would be that high.

    7- YES! We won the title on April 2….APRIL 2ND!

    So let me get this straight – you were a Division I head coach for 38 years, and your son was a Division I head coach… and you are hawking your championship rings for his kids’ educations. Yeah that makes sense.

    That puppy looks like “Astro” from “The Jetsons”. I hope our fellow fan Nick finds his little pal safe and sound. #6, you sound like such an understanding person – when someone loses a child in an accident, I bet you are one of the first to comment about what poor parents they are.

    #7, #11 – I guess the only solution is for us to win another championship so they will stop trying to sell this particular Stadium print. 😀

    #8 At least he didn’t say “@RoushKSR If you ever want to see Jagger again retire from KSR now” I wouldn’t put it past some. I hope Corey Nichols has a Pitbull uhahaha

    Do you have to be able to say the work “Kentucky” to call a Kentucky game?
