    I wonder if Billy G or Mickie Demosss will apply for the KSR dating game? Anyone going to WVLK Anniversary Party Will Feature Joe B. Hall? Rob Roy will be there. Sue Wylie may as well.

    “We’re Jerry Tipton’s Super Bowl” #IfCalipariRanKSR

    “Matt Jones writes the 5th most posts on the entire site, and he’s the #1 sports talk radio host in the county!?! It’s about shared sacrifice.” #IfCalipariRanKSR

    “You guys are talking like KSR is the #1 ranked college sports blog in the nation, and I’m just try to teach these guys basic typing fundamentals…We’re just not very good right now, but I like my team.” #IfCalipariRanKSR

    “My goal before I’m through here is for BBN to go 40-0 in online polls.” #IfCalipariRanKSR

    “I’m here because I can recruit the best of the best bloggers. We’ll have to make room for the best of the best, so Corey Nichols and I are going to sit down this afternoon to discuss his future. He has expressed some interest in transfering to a Georgia Tech blog and I’m encouraging him to do what’s best for him and his family.” #IfCalipariRanKSR

    Wiggins – Post on Catspause by acquaintance of Wiggins coach, says UK unlikely spot for Wiggins if he goes 2013. Sounds like he wants to be the man (get 30 shots/game? Ask Austin Rivers how that worked). Great talent, but might not be a good fit for UK’s class???

    I can’t understand people’s logic for bringing Joker back. I don’t think Auburn or Tennessee is going to be looking for a coach next year. Other than the Bama game, UT has played well and Chizik will sacrifice his assistants to please the masses, thus buying another year. UK needs to go all in on Petrino. We need a proven coach that can win, and that list is very short. Petrino can win with 3 star players and will fill the seats at Commonwealth. I want someone to get the job done.

    The more schools that recruit a player the more fans there will be to discover them. This is simply a form of self advertising. No different than the harrison twins dragging along SMU and Maryland. Someone who is only going to play one year in college wants to draw as much attention to themselves as possible so that there will be more hype about them come draft time. this does NOT worry me at all. when it’s all said and done he will be a cat



  45. J in Orlando

    42 Of course…because at all those other places he will see double and triple teams game in and game out…at UK he sees few if any…he may actually get more quality scoring opportunities per game at UK

    Wiggins had a teammate commite to FSU and he still asked other schools to recruit him. Plus FSU picked up another top 100 guy. Maybe he doesn’t want to lose any attention and just wants to build his own “brand”.

    # 45 – You sound reasonable and rationale, but I disagree. Looking at A. Rivers, no way he would get as many shots on UK’s team last year as he did at Duke. Look at the US Olympic teams, no one gets as many shots as they do on their regular team because of so many great players (not the same, but similar concept).

    Matt, the fans are disgusted with the shape of our PROGRAM. If the administration is NEVER going to support football to the point that we EVER actually “Compete for Championships”, then price the tickets equivalent to women’s basketball.

    62 Rivers isn’t Wiggins…not even close…Wiggins will be able to take his defender 1 on 1 at UK because of the talent around him and the dribble drive (spacing, picks, etc.)…his one season at UK will be a showcase of his skills…that is why Cal uses the dribble drive for the talent he gets…that’s how he sells so many top recruits…at the end of the day he will come to UK imo (which is a more educated opinion than you might think).

    I think the point Larry was trying to make was that he wants a “program builder” type coach not some flash in the pan coach with a gimmicky offense. And while that may be true if Kentucky had half of the talent in state as other schools. We need something exciting to get people here.

    11- To have a great defense, you have to have big, athletic lineman and only a handful of teams have them like Bama, LSU and UF. So, I say get an offensive minded coach and work on the defensive side. At least with offensive team, you can score.

    Matt, I can’t call in because I’m at home with a 21 month old kid who will scream as soon as we start talking. Sonny Dykes will work at UK if you want to see a fun offense and win 6 games once every few years. However if UK wants to be SERIOUS about the football program, Petrino is the only name out there that has proven he can win in the SEC is 3 star-type talent.

    Matt… every caller talks about how Joker should be fired and you always seem to respond with the ”what if he wins out” excuses.
    Chances are Mitch wont fire Joker no matter if we lose the next 4 games by 100 pts each. But I feel the main reason everyone wants Joker gone is because no one can clearly state what it is we’re supposed to be buying into. He always mentions how the team didnt do this or that, then the next game they do it again.
    Every year UK has been a losing program… even in bowl years we were never the top tier like LSU or Florida…so fans understand Joker may not need to win to gain support…its the fact he has the same mistakes, doesnt take chances, runs the exact same plays that defenses are not surprised…etc etc etc

    127 If you look at this year in a vacuum perhaps, although I say 6th or 7th at best…but if they were in the SEC historically they would not have the program that they do because they would be an also ran…see the only reason we are discussing them is as a way to say that UK can do what they did…but I am saying if they were an SEC team they would be not much better than UK has been.



  135. Smitty

    127 – Doubtful.. They have played 1 team that has a good defense and won by 5…… They have not played teams with very good defenses like Alabama, LSU, Mississippi St., South Carolina, etc… No other team, besides Oklahoma, that they have beat has anything above an average defense.

    Matt, do you think this is a sign of how strong of a recruiting job that uk has done that other big schools have stayed completely away?

    Maybe the show thread will pick up some once basketball starts. Politics, terrible football team, trolls, etc make it hard to bring the funny.

    Matt first time poster long time listener here… To be fair to the fans/callers/etc you are one of the most aggressive talk show hosts in this area. The show I listen to before yours (Leach Report) is of a completely different call in basis as he lets his callers express their full opinion and usually the caller hangs up, not the other way around.

    240 – the problem is the show has deteriorated even in the last couple months. Matt is becoming more egotistical and arrogant. I think his attitude keeps away some good callers that used to call all of the time. He plays to the lowest common denominator. He berates everyone that doesn’t agree with him and seems like he dislikes ryan so much. I’m waiting for Ryan to finally stand up for himself.

    234 — They would beat UGA and Miss St. in a home game — no doubt in my mind. Winning at Florida would probably not happen, but they would have decent shot against South Carolina. I just base my thoughts on how Vegas would make lines for each. They would certainly be favorites against UGA and Miss St. at home (and probably on the road vs. Miss St.) and they would probably be a Pick ‘Em down to +3 against So. Car. at home. At Florida they would probably be getting 7 points or so.

    Matt, most of the negativity is YOU. Caller Kevin was right, and you are being intentionally obtuse. You claimed Wiggins was “opening up” his recruitment when in fact all the boy said was he had never closed it!
    And your comment that “Wiggins opens up his recruitment” presumes he had closed it, which is just false. In fact, that was the boy’s entire point: “I am wide open right now and I have not narrowed it down, and I don’t know why more schools aren’t coming in on me.” Just don’t be so negative in your comments, and stop hanging up on people who disagree with you.

    235 – They have no good games left… The best D they play is TCU.

    Their schedule does play out better than Oregon’s considering Oregon still has 3 top 20 games, 2 being top 10.

    The 1 tough game K State played, they almost lost. Oregon has DESTROYED erveryone they have played

    255 — So you don’t think Kansas State would be a favorite at home against UGA and Miss. St.? If you don’t you are wrong.

    255 — I don’t know what you’re talking about teams who have lost to each other. Also, your point of 2-13 has no basis considering K-State has been horrible every year of its existence other than when Bill Snyder was the coach. LOL at your belief that K-State would lose at home to Miss St. and UGA (teams Kentucky was very competitive with at home).

    261 — I just think like Vegas does. Vegas would certainly have K-State as the favorite over Miss. St. and UGA in a home game. They may be a small underdog vs. South Carolina in a home game. I think they would get vs. Florida on the road.

    260 – Vegas sets the line so that they will get bets on both sides of the line…. If K State were favored by 5 over Mississippi St, does not mean that they think K State will win. They want even betting on both sides so that Vegas wins.



  261. Head Bussa
    12:22 pm October 23, 2012 Permalink

    261 — I understand all about why they set the lines the way they do. Bottom line is that the favorite would be Kansas St. and you can’t argue that fact.

    Rumor has it that Andrew Wiggins reopened his recruitment because he tuned to All Access Kentucky and it was a Billy G rerun and he has been having nightmares and waking up in a cold sweat.
