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.

— The news of the morning was Karl Towns’ commitment. Not only did Towns pick the Cats, but he announced that he is reclassifying to the 2014 class, both moves that pretty much everyone predicted. Towns, who measures 7′ without shoes, is now ranked the 7th best player in 2014 by Scout.com. Towns is not your average top basketball recruit; he has a 4.3 GPA (thanks to AP classes), plays the piano, and can hit a golf ball 300 yards. That’s all great, but can he recite Shakespeare like Brandon Knight?

— How did Mamma Towns feel?

“Thank you so much, thank you so much!!”

— Just when we thought we were done with the coaching search, here comes the assistant coaching search. KSR learned that Mark Stoops would be traveling to interview Neal Brown and Chad Scott for the offensive coordinator and running backs coach positions today. CoachingSearch.com reports that Chad Scott will not interview with Stoops “at this point,” but that Neal Brown will speak with Stoops.

— In an interview with a Lubbock sports station, Brown said that he was on the road recruiting and that any reports of him going to Kentucky were “premature” (premature meaning that he hadn’t gotten to the roadside diner to meet with Stoops yet). Landon Wright, 247’s Texas Tech recruiting specialist, says Brown to UK is a “done deal” (oy), but won’t be official until tomorrow. We’ll have a box of Burke’s Bakery waiting for you in Lexington, Neal.

— You know it’s a crazy news day when we’re halfway through the afternoon notes and haven’t even mentioned tonight’s game against Samford. The Bulldogs aren’t expected to pose much of a challenge to Kentucky, but it will be a good opportunity for the team to get its feet back under them and try out some of the smaller lineups that Cal’s been using in practice this week. I’ll also be curious to see how Ryan Harrow plays after some good late minutes against Baylor. After back-to-back losses and an intense few days of practice, it will be interesting to see how this Kentucky team responds (in other words, poor Samford. Love you, Martin Newton!).

Andrew Wiggins is currently on an official visit to Florida State, where he’ll attend the FSU/Florida game tomorrow night. If that doesn’t encourage him to come play in Rupp, I don’t know what will.

— The rumor that Ashley Judd is running for Senate just got legs again. **insert Ashley opinion here**

Auburn’s President is ready to announce their new coach within 24 hours, which means this SEC coaching search mess is almost halfway over. Decide quickly, Arkansas and Tennessee, for the love of Twitter!

UPDATE: According to several sources, Arkansas has hired Bret Bielema from Wisconsin. You’re up, Tennessee.

— Finally, RIP to former UK lineman Mike Scott, who passed away over the weekend after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 36. Thoughts go out to his family.

On today’s show, Matt and Ryan talked Karl Towns, Neal Brown, and UK’s game against Samford tonight.

    Why do you quote the Scout Rankings instead of ESPN or another ranking service. ESPN had Towns #1 in 2015 now have him #3 in the 14 class!

    Ashley needs to run in California, Kentucky will not vote for a Liberal!

    Ashley Judd running against Mitch McConnell would be the only reason i would vote for Mitch McConnell.

    Boss, maybe Kentucky should vote liberal since what we have been doing for the last 30 yrs hasn’t worked very well for us. We are last in everything and have been for years.

    yeah ashley, please do run, and then renounce your Kentucky status, and stay out. you arent like us, and can in no way represent us. in short, we aint havin it.

    Ashley Judd is out of work because her show got cancelled so she needs something to do. The Demo party is just using her for her name anyway. She went to the Kennedy School at Harvard, so now like most liberals she now things she knows what she’s doing. Ashley is so disconnected from KY, hence the reason she’s not even a KY resident, she lives in Nashville. Let her come out against coal in KY, and see how long her pipe dream last.

    #12-agree…c’mon Trashley, go ahead and run so Mitch can have an easy time at re-election. BTW-you have gone Hollyweird on us so stay out of KY.

    I like Ashley Judd, but I hope she doesn’t run against Mitch McConnell for the senate. McConnel and the millions he would raise for his campaign could paint George Washington as a British loyalist. Ashley is far to vulnerable to be a candidate. Just my opinion.

    Why is there no video of the Towns announcement?

    Ashley Judd is another left wing, Hollywood space cadet. If not for her UK ties, her candidacy would be laughable.

    8 and 10, last I checked, I am the Governor of KY…and a liberal.

    #17 – And the fact that were fat, stupid and poor isn’t laughable? Geez, thanks a lot Mitch and all you right wingers for all you have done!

    19 that fact that were fat, stupid, and poor isn’t laughable. But neither is the fact that we’re fat, stupid, and poor. Actually I’m not but I guess you are.



  21. Not fat or stupid
    3:55 pm December 4, 2012 Permalink

    19. I’m not fat or stupid. 6’0” 180 10 % body fat. Poor, I will admit to that, but not the others.

    #19 – Awesome job, dude! You got me on the missing apostrophe, and while doing that, messed the sentence up yourself. You may not be fat, but you are dumb, admit it. The poor thing I’m not buying either.

    also 23 I didn’t mess the sentence up myself. I said “that” fact bc you stated it as a fact. fail again. 3 strikes, you should really take a seat. It’s okay, you don’t have to “buy” the poor thing, clearly you’re too broke to buy it.



  26. Not fat or stupid
    4:07 pm December 4, 2012 Permalink

    Heshimu, you are missing an apostrophe also. It’s we’re, not were, dummy.

    4:07 pm December 4, 2012 Permalink

    ps…if you take a look at KY’s history w Senators, there are plenty of liberals who have been elected. So blame it on a Republican now bc that’s who is in office, but both parties have had their hands in on this.

    19) how poor or good a state is and where they fall on all the lists has much more to do with the Governor of the state and the state legislators, not our US Congress members.

    Ashley, please run. Please. Kentucky and our nation needs you. And it’s just quite possible that the Senate would be just a stepping stone to go even higher. No state could do better than you.
