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.

—  We’re just a little under six hours away from the Alabama game but the big news of the day is Kentucky’s new one-game-only jersey from Nike.  Like we saw last year for the home game against Tennessee, Nike will fit the Kentucky team with a new unique look, this time for the game at Florida on February 12.  10 other men’s and women’s team will wear similar styles at some point this season.

Early chatter froms fans is that they look too much like practice jerseys.  Your thoughts?

—  Willie Cauley-Stein did not travel to Alabama.  The Cats will have to rely on Alex Poythress and Kyle Wiltjer at the four-spot, or the five if Nerlens gets in foul trouble again.

—  It’s time for your UK Joke O’ The Day… “Knock-knock.  Who’s there?  Rick Minter.  Rick Minter, who?  Rick Minter will coach for the Philadelphia Eagles next season.  Get the hell off my front porch.”  It’s true, folks.  Reports out of Philly are saying Rick Minter is expected to coach the Eagles’ linebackers.  We heard the rumors a few days ago but it took a little while to sink in.  It will be Minter’s first season coaching in the NFL.

—  Manti Te’o’s dead, non-existent girlfriend sent a tweet to Peyton Siva during the NCAA Tournament last season.  According to the collection of tweets on Deadspin, Lennay Kekua tweeted, “@PeypeySiva3 When you comin to Ca bruh? I saw your pops end of last year.”  Siva did not respond because he was busy getting ready to lose to Kentucky for a fourth time.

—  Mrs. Tyler is currently on her way to Tuscaloosa for tonight’s game.  The live blog will get rolling around 8:45 ET — or whenever she connects to the Wi-Fi there — and the KSR pregame show will begin at 6:30 ET in Lexington on 630 WLAP or 98.1 The Bull for the second half hour.

—  Matt and Ryan previewed tonight’s game against Alabama on this morning’s radio show. Listen to the podcast at TalkRadio1080.com.

Cats.

    Jerseys look like someone at Nike had 10 minutes to meet the deadline, and just slapped the UK logo and a number on a gym shirt.

    Yes- practice jerseys. Nike can do better.

    Should’ve made them black, or some crazy lime green sh*t just to throw everyone off.

    I just hope the guys realize Auburn basketball isn’t what they face tonight against Alabama and deal with it. They even suck too, but are an upgrade from what we previously faced. Not going to watch game til I wake up tomorrow. Surprise me guys. I have a bad feeling.

    This site has never liked any of our “one game only” jerseys, ths fan base is impossible to please.. why do you all complain about EVERYTHING??? Would you rather Nike make random new uniforms for another team? Stop whining cry babies damn!!

    ukfan has a great point. Most of you DO pretty much complain about everything.

    Just because Nike makes them doesn’t mean we have to like them. KSR posted this for the readers opinions and we are just calling it as we see it.

    And @ukfan, aren’t you and @Big E, in fact complaining, yourselves?

    I dont know why people complain about nike jersey’s every year. I always enjoy seeing what they come up with next. Im sure the players love them and are excited to wear them. I just wish everyone
    could enjoy the fact that we are one of the teams that get special jerseys every year. Personally i cant wait to see what they look like during the game and might even go get one for myself

    10 – Totally agree. If Nike DIDN’T include us, everyone would be on here crying “Nike hates us” and that we deserve it more than all the other teams – which we do, lol. But yeah, it’s a gimmick, something to mix it up a little, and the kids like it. Works for me! Just one game.

    Only one more comment today. On the jerseys, I have always wanted to see an intimidating, snarling bare-fanged wildcat on the front of the jersey. Probably tacky. I don’t know.

    All this is, is a gimmick by Nike to sell more jerseys to those who already own one. Well joke is on them, I’m to poor to buy this one.

    Saw the news about Minter over the weekend. How did that happen? As far as I can tell, he has no connection to Kelly and they haven’t hired a DC yet. How many concussions will the linebackers suffer from being thrown under the bus?

    I was by no means a fan of Minter, but part of the problem could have been the level of talent. We will see what Stoops can do with some of those same players.

    Not to change the subject but did anyone watch Georgetown destroy Notre Dame last night and wonder how in the world did we lose to them by 14???????????????

    Jerseys are unimpressive.

    22 & 23 – Not a fan of Minter either. He was a genius in his own mind but just couldn’t coach his players.

    They do look like practice jerseys…really expensive ones too. Couldn’t get the wildcat on there like Gonzaga got the bulldog? Theirs looked nice. That UK logo is just too plain and overused.

    It’s about time we lay off of Minter. He improved our defense from Steve brown and at times was starting an entire DB core of freshman. No one could’ve done much after all this injuries last year.

    Love my ‘cats but I’ve never liked the present bland UK logo. But in the end, paying a little extra cash to Nike for a retro “K” or wildcat isn’t a big deal. Just win in the damn things and these uniforms will be fine.

    UK wearing these jerseys for the Florida game must mean that Florida is Kentucky’s Superbowl.

    Looks like cheap practice jerseys. I wish they would come back with the SEC tournament jerseys from 2005. Best UK jersey ever.
