Today’s Special: TWO PODCASTS!!!

Our fearless leader, Matt Jones, went back to his old stomping grounds at CBS for a podcast with Matt Norlander. The two former co-workers gathered around a couple of microphones to discuss everything one would need to know about the Cats and Cards.

A quick rundown from Norlander:

— From the beginning: Jones did used to write for the blog, so we get reacquainted to start things off, then talk about how much Kentucky fans hate Goodman and Parrish.

— 6:01: It’s pretty fair to say Kentucky is not playing as completely as it could be. Why is that? How are the fans reacting to this season so far? They seem balanced, surprisingly.

— 10:50: What’s up with Terrence Jones?

— 14:39: Talking U of L-UK, and so much of it is Pitino vs. Calipari. The two purely hate each other. Jones offers up some anecdotes.

— 18:00: Normally, the UK players get up for this game, but it’s not something that consumes them. This year, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

— 23:58: Talking national hoops with Jones. There’s a group of 11 he sees as the most likely to make the Final Four. Beyond that, it’s a big drop-off in terms of New Orleans expectations.

— 29:52: Wrapping it up with some NYE talk and the Duke-UNC/UK-Louisville rivalry comparison.


We also have your Kentucky Sports Radio radio podcast at the same great price as well. Handsome Jimmy returned and Ryan Lemond almost named our country’s last seven Presidents. Have a listen…

    Cats are 12.5 point favorites. Too much, too little, or just right?

    When did TJ score 70 in the Blue-White game? Also, UL did not go to the Final Four in Gillispie’s last year.

    You’ve got to love Matt. He’s got a great radio voice and he’s very entertaining. However, making up the delusional 70 point thing is kind of weird. He has a great personality for commercialism, but his individual evaluation of basketball players and teams is either borrowed, unrealistic or delusional. I love listening to Matt on the amp mod but his inexperience in the basketball ring is becoming more evident with every comment. Still luv u tho bro!
