University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Tweet Beat: Twitter Fight!


As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.

It was a busy week in Cats land, with two wins, a Twitter fight—what?!! It’s snowing?!?!

Did you stock up on bread, eggs, and milk? No?! Well, you are screwed. I’ll think of you while I enjoy my french toast tomorrow.

After his big game last night, who could blame Josh Harrellson for taking a nap on the plane?

Hey Iman: don’t engage Jorts in a prank war. You have been warned.

UK fans at the Auburn game last night: your voices were heard. Well done.

The real reason the Cats got off to a slow start last night: still upset about no BET at the hotel.

Oh and Varez Ward: Marquis Teague wants me to tell you that’s what happens when you don’t say “spoiler alert.”

Kyle Wiltjer is soliciting ideas for the next WBA video if you’ve got them. I’m thinking trick shots in the Lancaster Aquatic Center to Mariah Carey’s “Fantasy”?

We’ve all been there, Jarrod. #bagofrice

MKG reached out to his idol…

Hey Michael, King Rex has some advice for drawing a foul:

Alex Poythress watched the Cats play last night:

Good to see Jon Hood take a break from rolling around in office chairs to start some Tennessee smack talk:

Hey haters: Marquis Teague sees you, disapproves.

Everyone welcome Tony Delk, aka the Golden Retriever of Kentucky Basketball, to Twitter!

Tony joined today and he already has more followers than BTI. Go figure.

Looks like Sam Malone is on Team Shannon:

All of this “bro”therly love going around the program lately has me feeling a little vahklempt.

This is why I love DeMarcus Cousins:

Oh man, Antoine Walker has no idea what he started with this question and even more so, the answer:

Hey Ravi, your girl knows you’re not just looking at the suits. It’s called playing dumb:

Really, Aaron Boyd?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a quality Winston Guy #lovetweet:

Hey Morgan, I’ve got your back. #notreally

Stevie, your wife will never buy that excuse. McDonald’s NEVER runs out of fries.

Looks like Randall Cobb got my gift:


Hey guys, I know who we can crash with when we got to New Orleans for the SEC Tournament and Final Four:

Josh Hopkins continues to spread the #WWMKGD movement. Great, now I feel guilty for those Hershey Kisses I ate earlier.

Ryan Harrow pretty much sums up the KSR comments section:

Just let it out, Perry, let it out:

In this week’s “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie gets up close and personal, showing off a self-portrait he took in the mall:

Alright Fayette Mall experts…where is he? Food court? Is that Sbararro?

And now for the main event. While you were sleeping last night, our very own Matt Jones and the Courier-Journal’s Kyle Tucker exchanged some serious virtual insults last night over Twitter. After the smoke cleared, these were the remains (be sure to read from bottom to top, Twitter style):

In the interest of full disclosure, some of the tweets from last night were deleted, but have been chronicled here.

Now, the beef has been brewing between these two for a while. And, like it does during almost any good Twitter/schoolyard fight, friends feel as though they need to choose sides. In the far corner, I present to you: Team Tucker!

Team Jones!

Never pick against the Hefty Lefty.

Play nice out there, kids. Until next time, RT plz?

    I am 26 years old and have lived in Kentucky since I was 14. The above “twitter fight” is a perfect example of why I will never subscribe to the herald leader or the CJ. They wonder why they are going out of business but it is clearly obvious to anyone my age; their readers are dying off and they are doing absolutely nothing to get new, youthful readers (and you could even argue they are driving people like me away). These papers are circling the drain and I for one couldn’t be happier.

    I don’t know what you guys at KSR did to Scott Anderson but he for real hates you. Someone mentioned how successful KSR was in the comment section and he deleted every comment. He has issues for real.

    Mainstream media doesn’t like Jones because he calls them out and they all defend each other to the death. he is threatening to their fraternity.
    Is that pipsqueak JL Pennington joking? ever heard of Jerry Tipton?

    Matt, just remember that having a fans prospective is what made KSR, not trying to kiss the other media members a!s. I thought no one at the C-J or LHL know that KSR existed, so why would they respond to a nobody twitting? That internet is a fad any way, people have to buy their papers to see what they should think, don’t they?

    7. Couldn’t agree more I am 30 and my brothers 37. None of us get the paper. Nor do any of my friends or theirs. I know it is a small sample, but shows you that very few of the 18-40 demographic read the paper. I come here for UK news (main sports I care about) ESPN occasionally, and what ever news sight I want. I can pick and choose how biased left or right instead of hearing their same opinion every day. I’m not trying to start a political fight, just the correlation between their sports reporting and news reporting, and how irrelevant they are becoming. it makes them so mad and I love it.

    the final blow to the printed media will come when sites like this figure out how to give their readers the sunday ads like kroger, meijer, target etc. i’m sure someone is already working on it

    I have honestly never heard of Kyle Tucker until just now, after I read this.

    Who cares about the newspaper anyway? By the time they print something, its outdated… especially if you are following the Cats on KSR.

    I see those guys outside of Wal-Mart and Kroger trying to give away free newspapers. I always so, “No, thanks.” I have the internet, I don’t need something I’m just going to have to throw away.

    I used to get the CJ so I could use it to cover the bottom of the Bird Cage…but my bird got constipated refusing to even defecate on the sports page…went back to Brawny

    Sadly I watch Adam Lefkoe on the news and he sucks. Bitter UL fans… Let the haters hate. Too bad he doesn’t troll KSR comments sections, because he needs to know the truth…

    Here are the media types in the Bluegrass

    Geraldines- These old folks are more bitter than 10 lemons lemonade. They are known to hang out in Media Press Rooms counting out the number of cookies each member of the media are allowed to eat. They have appointed themselves as the arbitors of everything and never get in their way between a quote and a coach.

    Vaughtsauras- These type of guys are known to type away on their 286’s and wear Members Only gear. Generally nice guys but their world ended in 1990.

    Kyles- Mirrors are their favorite things in the world and never stand between them and a mirror. If these folks never get another Media gig they can do Breck commercials.

    Vaneti’s- Closet UK fans who can’t come out for fear of the dreaded Darth Turtleneck. These guys usually have strings attached to their backs so their masters can play them.

    Jonesy’s- Love to stir the pot and their Operating System never works with any other Media Operating System.

    Aaron Boyd’s tweet HAD to be black humor… right? Did no one else raise an eyebrow at this?

    Matt, please don’t ever back down from these ass clowns. You are our voice. You are one of us (or were) who made it doing things the “KSR Way”. Ryan and Vanetti mean well, but they are wrong. If those ass hats in the “media” can’t handle what you dish out on them, they should find another line of work. Remember, you’re not one of them. You’re better than them. Viva la revolution!
