    When is the KSR Cruise? The thought of having some combination of The Truth, J-Rock, Chester, Fake Barney, etc. on the show during the cruise would be so good, that it would probably melt the radio!

    I’d like to say a big thanks to all the KSR/BBN family, our little girl, Sara was born on 5/29 at 3:46pm, she seems to be doing okay. She was supposed to be born on Aug 12. She is tiny, but a little fighter! 17 inches long and 1 pound 9.9 ounces. She will be in the NICU for awhile so thoughts and prayers still needed. She seems to have a really good weekend.

    KSR has helped me get through the rough few days last week.

    I dont really think people know what we are getting from Pullium….Unless the numbers were skewed, and at real combines they don’t seem to be, this kid is pretty freaky athletically. In 2009, going into his senior year [ he’ll be 22 in October] he ran a 4.31 40, had a 4.46 in the shuttle, a 31 inch verticle, a 6.86 3 cone and jumped an even ten feet in the broad jump at a combine in Pittsburgh. Those are definitely SEC cornerback numbers.

    I’m as big a Charles Ramsey fan as the next guy, but I don’t believe his whole “I don’t want the attention/give the free stuff to someone else” schtick for one second. If he really didn’t want the attention, he wouldn’t be doing these tours and he seems more than happy to be getting the free food from McDonald’s. He’s saying one thing and doing the other. He’s still great TV/radio and I’m all for more Charles.

    My favorite Truth moment is when he called the Leach Report and pretended to be someone else and said “I saw the Truth the other day, he’s a character” and matt replayed it to him and called him out on it.

    KY has the biggest bandwagon fanbase. If we start out slow this year, everyone that is on board right now will just jump ship as they always do. I think it’s a very big concern that the fans stay interested.

  44. wow when does matt come back please say its soon i heard its next week just sayin

  46. Scooby
    10:47 am June 3, 2013 Permalink

    I dont get the worry for WKU…They lost their entire defensive line +1, 2 Offensive Linemen, Their starting QB, TE and their best WR. Its not like Petrino brought in a top 5 class to replace those guys….

    43.i wouldn’t say we have the biggest bandwagoners, but we definitely have our share of fair weather fans. We true blue fans have to call these fakes out. If you know one and they start to jump off call their @ss out!

    54- Just showing a ton of interest

    56- Here is how you get Lebron, offer him 5% in the franchise.

    Also, if the Big 3 in Miami go down Indiana will be a good team, however, cant forget about the Bulls with a healthy Rose and Deng. I would go as far to say if the Bulls were 100%, they would have beaten Miami…

    I’d definitely prefer the win over UL. If we lost to UL and beat Bama, we’d have to hear about how UL would own the SEC if they were here. I’d rather not ever have to hear that. I’ll take a win against them over anyone in the country, any year.
