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.

—  Defensive coordinator Rick Minter was asked about his team’s third down struggles. Minter responded, “Yeah, we stink on first and second down.” He added, “If we haven’t held them for nine yards on two downs, what makes you think we’re going to hold them for one yard on one down?”  It’s good to know Minter is watching the same games we are.

— Over on the offensive side, when asked what UK will do if put into a similar situation as the one they faced going into the third series at Missouri, offensive coordinator Randy Sanders said, “We’re going to do whatever Joker says he wants to do. He’s the one with a comma in his check.” If Randy Sanders doesn’t have a comma in his paycheck, Kentucky football funding has bigger problems than we realize.

—  In cased you missed it this morning, Ken Pomeroy used his magical, mathematical college basketball machine to create his preseason rankings and your University of Kentucky came in at No. 1, ahead of Ohio State.  Pomeroy, or Ken Pom as he’s known in the hood, also ranked the Cats and Buckeyes at No. 1 and 2 in his 2011-12 preseason rankings. In terms of teams’ predicted strength, this is the weakest year since 2003.

On a related note, I’ve had more success reading the lyrics to Pearl Jam’s “Yellow Ledbetter” in Chinese Wingdings than I’ve had trying to read into how Pomeroy comes up with his projections.

— Please tell me you’re watching Homeland.

—  Tom Leach is a contributor on UKAthletics.com these days (Who knew?) and your second favorite morning radio host has a new edition of his “From The Pressbox” series featuring Julius Mays. Leach wrote about Mays embracing the Kentucky experience and his new dual role with the Wildcats’ basketball team.

—  The UK Alumni League NBA season starts tonight. We’ll have a preview of the three games on the site a little later this afternoon.

—  On this morning’s radio show, Matt and Ryan discussed UK football, UK basketball, and Ryan’s highly-anticipated political report. Plus Tony Vanetti stopped by to be Tony Vanetti.  Have a listen…

    Hey I have a comma in my paycheck. It’s not on the line with the numbers though…

    Sounds like Sanders is a little fed up with Joker.

    Sounds like the coaches have more or less given up. Absolutely nothing they say inspires any notion of hope.

    sounds like two coaches expecting a pink slip soon

    8 – two coaches that deserve a pink slip.

    Will someone talk about the fight that lead to Matt being fired from the TV show? I would like to hear details. Heard beisner beat him up pretty good.

    Do these comments infuriate anybody else? This is absolute BS. First of all, the only reason we play Towles is because Joker does not want him to transfer. But why should we try to keep him? When max smith is healthy we have a great QB and a solid back up in Whitlow. We shouldn’t lose games over him. And when your OC throws the head coach under the bus like that, that’s a major problem and PR concern for the team. FIRE them all. NOW. A**h*les

    Randy Sanders comes across as an a-hole. I know what he’s not and that is an SEC-level offensive coordinator.
    10 – Let’s start a chain story on what happened and have readers add to it. That would probably be more interesting than the truth.

    So what are the chances we go after Sonny Dykes?

    These statements are pathetic…do they have any fight in them. I feel horrible for the players who have to dig deep to go out there and play for these clowns. They are not humorous comments and they have been talking like that for the last few weeks….Joker, Mitch, Board of Trustees, someone silence these idiots before the players totally quit on them!

    Matt, maybe Vanetti’s T count was too low when you where trying to film that commercial yesterday. Maybe he needs 3 shots a week.

    I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
