    We can all agree that if this was a UK anthem we would hate it. This white kids are terrible.

    Enough of these student-made, thump-my-chest, ridiculous copycat anthems. The first was horrible, the second one was worse, and with each successive version, the the bar of unoriginality and cheesiness gets raised higher and higher.

    Turrible… I hope kids at UK aren’t sagging their pants like these two idiots. Better yet I hope they aren’t wearing those skinny jeans. Murray State is riding high these days… I would love to see them take out UofL in the first round.

    STAND UP!

    pretty cool that the little campus in the heart of Calloway County is having this much fun. When I was there the biggest attraction was seeing SEC rejects like Rick Jones and Adam Chiles find ways to get kicked out of school again.

    Those Murray State fans did a music video for their school better than any UL fan has done for their school. WOW UL not only gets owned by UK. Now they are getting owned by Murray St. after getting owned by Morehead St last year.

    My brother is a Murray State alum and I will always love and respect the Racers. If Murray State actually finishes the season undefeated and gets like a 4 or 5 seed in the tourney, I will be extremely excited. As long as they aren’t in UK’s bracket, I will cheer for them just as much as I will for UK.

    It is what is. For rap video about Murray, the song and video production are actually pretty impressive. For those expecting it to more than a good night at amateur hour, STFU. Hat tip to the Racers.

    Say what you will about the song, the production value is pretty high — especially for college students. This stuff isn’t easy to make.

    The kids are just having fun. I love this kind of thing when students can get the faculty, and even the President of the Univ, involved. This, the Indiana video, etc…. I like it because it is how college should be. By the way, I love the kid Tebowing at the end…. haha

    I don’t know about anyone else, but is the Murray State thing starting to get annoying to you? I live close to Murray and people are acting like they have beat three top ten teams and are the overall number one seed. They beat a struggling Memphis team, and I almost watched them lose to Austin Peay. I will cheer for them and I hope to God they are not in our breacket. However, lets not get too excited about winning the OVC.

    I have actually heard old men say they are going to cheer for Murray instead of KY, because they do it the right way. I wonder how long that will last.

    But that my two cents, good luck Racers!

    31. From the people I have talked to on campus (where I live), the majority of Murray State fans don’t actually believe that we are one of the elite teams in the nation; what we do take pride in is how special this team is to our school’s history. I share the view with most Murray State fans that we are a team that could, on any given night, beat or be beaten on any given night. We’re just here to enjoy the ride, just like we need to do with the Cats.

    36.) Thanks for clearing that up. I was mostly going off of people who are older alumni or not affiliated with the organization. They probably are not as in tune with the national bball landscape as the freaky Cats fans we are.

    Drew, I think we need this video posted as well. Apparently, some Mizzou students are really excited about having a good team for half of a season…so they’re going to make a rap video and talk smack on the SEC.

    31) look at it like this…UK being undefeated in football coming into the final 2 weeks of the season. Hell I’m a UK and MSU fan, and I’ll tell you right now that people on here would be crazy excited and talking about UK being undefeated if they were. I could see the comments now, if this/that, etc. we will go undefeated and what are our chances of going undefeated and winning the NC. Everyone does this when their team is very close to an undefeated season.

    It is extra special at Murray, because I for one didn’t expect us to get by some of those out-of-conference games on the road the way we have. I remember after the UNC game for UK this year people starting talking about undefeated and overlooked the very next weekend. I will say this about the Racers and coaches…they are being humble and letting all the fans go nutts. They are still focusing.

    Oh and the video I like it and proud of them. Try getting a big college’s Pres, VP of student affairs, Asst. to the VP and Asst. to the Pres to do this. It’s a great town and a great college, and I wouldn’t have traded my college experience for a full ride anywhere else!

    I am a Murray grad and love the Racers. This is not the best takent wise they have had but is a special season. I think they are a top 25 team but not #9, I would be excited and realistically think maybe the sweet 16 if they have the right draw.

    Wrong #41. The comparison would come if UK were in the MAAC conference, and were undefeated 8 weeks in. In reality we suck, but we play no one. Same as Murray State. They beat a HORRIBLE Memphis team. Who has underachieved more than any team all year. And the media needs a darling this year. But put ALL YOUR MONEY on whatever 12 or 13 seed they end up playing….

    I am a current Murray State student who is a die hard UK fan, but I Murray State doing so well has helped me take pride in my school. Yea maybe we beat a struggling  Memphis team, but we did it in their house. Everyone says well they almost lost to Austin Peay, but guess what they didn’t, they are the Only undeafeated team left, and I will take pride in that no matter what! Go Cats Go Racers nuff said.

    Raazoul, you would be the reason that so many people hate UK. I will say that I can’t stand some of the UK fans and you would be one of them. Ever since the age of 4 I have followed the Cats, but the blinders are on some of the fans. Raazoul, the same weak MSU team beat Austin Peay at Austin Peay who beat UT at UT who was damn close to putting it on us at their place. Also talking about a struggling Memphis team. I consider UL a struggling team, but I bet you were happy to barely beat them at Rupp.

    I like KSR for showing love to the Racers, but as far as some of the UK fans I understand now why some of my friends hate UK (it’s not because of the school or the team or Cal, but because of the fans who are so high and mighty).

    Come on….Some of you need to lighten up on here….I am def “older” RACER alumni…..bottom line, Racers are undefeated, doesn’t matter who you are..an undefeated season gets recognition….and fan support , as it should. Do i like the song? No Do the guys look goofy? Yes
    But hey its all about having fun, enjoying the ride, getting involved, showing some spirit and school pride….you know it’s great for a smaller school in a smaller division to be able to
    have fun and enjoy the success and make videoes and act like a crazy cat fan. Go Racers Go Cats

    The video quality was great! The song is catchy & spirited. I feel like this post has turned in a politics blog except about sports! I’m sure any Racers fan is dancing to this song.

    UK fan all of the way but the Racers have had some really good teams over the years. Tops in their conference for years. Some real good players have came out of there. I would love UK to do a home and home with Murray State but realize for $$ reasons they would not come to Murray. People around here have always said the Cats want no part of the Racers and that’s why the are never on the schedule like other OVC teams such as Eastern, Morehead St, Tenn Tech…

    Make no mistake about it… This Murray State team can flat out shoot the rock. They certainly do not match up well with hardly any other top 25 team or major division 1 program… but on any given night, they could beat anybody. Undersized. But great half court defense, they’re 9 deep, excellent tempo, and as I said before, they’re lethal from deep. Isaiah Canaan and Donte Poole are for real.

    I think it was great. these kids are out to have fun with it. the only thing that sucks are the UK fans that wish their version sounded like this! GO RACERS!! Maybe they’ll meet up in the tourey and it want be the song that’s the only thing better!!! (If you follow)
