Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Tweet Beat’s back, alright!


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.

No, you’re not seeing things. Tweet Beat has made a triumphant return after a two-week hiatus. What can I say? Blame the Pilgrims, the Indians, and whoever scheduled the St. John’s game. Don’t they know Thursday nights are sacred?!

We’ve got a lot to cover, so crack those knuckles and get ready to scroll!

Let me take you back…to a time when President Obama was in the White House, North Carolina was the number one team in the country, and the Kentucky football team celebrated its first win over Tennessee in 26 years. Wait, that was less than two weeks ago? Well, it still feels FANTASTIC, right, Stuart Hines?


The hero of the game, Matt Roark, celebrated the win and the end of No-Shave November with some…questionable facial hair.


Seriously, what is that? A mutton chop/fu manchu combo?

While Tweet Beat was sleeping, it looks like someone finally fed Josh Clemons:


And in case you were wondering, Winston Guy would do it all over again.


What would you do if you opened your door to find Danny Trevathan singing Christmas carols?


Speaking of Christmas, Terrence Jones loves Christmas movies and doesn’t care who knows:


I feel like I could dedicate a whole Tweet Beat to tweets about the North Carolina/Kentucky game, but this summary will have to suffice:


Ramon Harris took his daughter to the game, and they were seriously adorable:


Anthony Davis wasn’t the only Cat to get his picture taken with Ashley that day:


Even Rex Chapman loves a good Oscar Combs sighting:


Famous people went to the game! Like Walter McCarty and Josh Hopkins!


Kyle Wiltjer celebrated the win by letting his mom push him around in a shopping cart at Walmart.


There’s a weird Freudian reference in there somewhere about a baby stroller, but my love for Wiltjer’s hook shot won’t let me go there. #rufio

If possible, Anthony Davis‘ big block in the game made him even more of a star on campus. He’s even posing for pictures during class:


Davis also mentioned paintball on Twitter this week, and Lord knows you can’t make a paintball reference on Twitter without Nazr Mohammad getting involved:


Elsewhere in the Lodge, Jon Hood is stressing over big decisions:



Alright, who stole Brian Long‘s phone charger??


Part of me is so comforted that in these tough times, Ryan Harrow is still a kid at heart:


Hey ladies, hook Brandon up with a nice spa rec:


Remember MKG’s monster dunk against Portland? Yeah, King James saw it, too.


Young Bobby Perry (complete with afro) has an awesome “bitch please” stare:


I had high expectations when I found Shagari Alleyne‘s Twitter account and I have yet to be disappointed.


Smooth feels your pain, Shaggy.


Hey Wesley, the answer to your question is YES.


Meanwhile, Wayne Turner asks a question I often ask myself.


Braxton Kelley sees you eating out of the Chinese takeout box, and he disapproves.


Look, it’s Mark Krebs and Little Mark Krebs!


Aww, our Jorts is all grown up. Good luck in the Big Apple, Josh!


I am still very concerned about Rajon Rondo‘s latest Twitpic:


And if he weren’t dreamy enough, Randall Cobb now wants to learn how to play the piano. Single women of Green Bay, beware!


Like me, Perry Stevenson‘s been watching too much TV lately.


Is Walter McCarty organizing a ’96 vs. ’98 exhibition game for next summer? 9698game

I feel you, Ravi Moss. Just own it. ravi-awkward

This week’s “Tweet that makes you go ‘Awww'” goes to DeMarcus Cousin, and his adorable little fan: boogie-aww

Finally, it’s time for the “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” in which Bookie tells us what its like to flirt in this time of social media mania. bookie-girl

Dats mula crazy. Until next time (promise), RT plz?

    I blame the lack of “tweat beat” on the politically correct who are trying so hard (0nly to fail) to take Christ out of Christmas with their happy holiday bull sh!t.

    Glad to see tweat beat back

    Knott County High School played Cordia High School tonight and beat them 99-32. Why does that matter? Because Roderick Rhodes is the head coach at Corida and he almost got into a fight with Knott County’s coach and the fans stormed the floor too ready to fight. CRAZY scene!!!!! Thank God the State Police were on site when it went down.

    So the KSR shop (Fan Outfitters) had major issues on Cyber Monday. Went back on Tuesday Nov. 29 and placed my order. Emailed today asking for tracking. It hasn’t even shipped out yet. Gotta do better than that guys if you’re gonna put your name on it!

    #9 – I am in the exact same boat. They replied that it hasn’t shipped yet. I actually ordered on Cyber Monday, if it shows up today, which it won’t, it would be a 9-day ship. Shocking.

    I ordered off of Wildcat Wearhouse on Cyber Monday and had my items on that Wednesday…and that whole site was 50% off on Cyber Monday.
