UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

These girls know how to do Keeneland right!

— On the Jim Rome Show, former UT coach Bruce Pearl had some nice things to say about his former rival, John Calipari. Pearl said that Cal “has always been better than people gave him credit for…but he’s gotten even better.” When asked about Cal taking NBA job, Pearl said he thinks that Cal wants more championships that Bobby Knight and Coach Krzyzewski, and that he can do that at Kentucky. It’s becoming harder and harder for me not to like Bruce Pearl when he says stuff like this. He’s like the lovable Cheeto puff of college basketball…entertaining from afar, just don’t touch or you’ll be stained for life.

— Want an Anthony Bennett update? This is all I’ve got for you:

— Many players are currently traveling around the area on autograph tours with Cardboard Heroes. Here’s a full list of where they’ll be and when, so go getchoo a signed picture. Also, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be signing autographs and visiting with fans tonight at Lexington Sports Cards from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Lexington Sports Cards is located at 169 East Reynolds Road.

— The fine folks over at CoachCal.com have posted a great series of “Championship Moments” documenting the team’s journey to number eight. Today’s installment, The Seeds of Spider-Man are planted,” profiles–guess who–Anthony Davis. And no, there is no way to frame that title and not have it sound dirty.

— Just a reminder of all the UK athletics going on this weekend: your #2 Batcats take on #1 LSU tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the first of a three-game series. Tomorrow, they’ll play at 2 p.m., after which you should check out the Blue/White game at Commonwealth Stadium at 6 p.m. Nerlens Noel and the Championship trophy will be in attendance. Sunday’s baseball game starts at 1 p.m.

— Don’t forget about tomorrow’s KSTV Casting Call in Northern Kentucky! The auditions will be held in Florence at Insight Communications Studio (7906 Dixie Highway, Florence, KY 41042). To try out, you MUST be present at registration, which runs from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. For more details, click here.

— One last bit of business, I swear. We’re looking to add new writers to KSRCollege.com for the summer and fall semester. To qualify, you must be a college student (preferably at Kentucky) and send a resume and a writing sample to [email protected] Entries need to be in by Monday, April 22, and all applicants must be available for an interview in Lexington on Sunday, April 29.

Here’s today’s podcast, live from Keeneland. Matt, Drew, and the gang discussed all of the hot topics in UK sports today, including–oh, I give up. They talked about waterbeds.

    How about Bruce Pearl at the newest Div.I program, which is located 70 miles north of Lexington. 2014 opener, NKU v. UK, with Pearl in a bright gold blazer.

    I don’t really like the fact that Bennett listed Florida last. Kinda like a ‘save the best for last’ type of thing.

    Hey do you all need more writers for the KSR College site?

    have you all considered Paratrooper as a KSR writer? He seems really on the ball and balanced. Ha.

    KSR needs to worry about replacing Tomlin before they try to bring on other new writers. Dude is a joke. Did anyone happen to see the mess he posted today? I think it is another staffer posting under a fake name. Any other takers?

    To be a writer for KSR can I just repost KSTV casting call updates? That seems to be about 30% of the content on here lately.

    #13, I disagree about the way Bennett ordered his list. I think by him listing UK fist it shows who comes to mind for him first when he thinks about what school he wants to go to. By listing Florida last is was more like oh by the way, Florida is on my list to, blah, blah, blah. Also, I believe Cal is a recruiting and media genious, whereas he’s already gotten a Bennett commitment but he’s just telling him to save it to build up the BBNs anticipation and to get back into the news again right around the time the spring signing period is wrapping up.



  23. ouch

    @ 19. I know that’s you Tomlin. Intelligence has nothing to do with those posts. Some of his material is pretty fun, other times, much like today, they are trash.

    22. I agree. Did you guys notice how there is an extra space between UNLV and the comma? That obviously means he is down to UK & UNLV. And Bennett only has seven letters in it but since he made his twitter name “ABennett” he is obviously targeting another name/state with eight letters and eight championships. Just sayin…

    Bennett reportedly learned to read and write in a Chinese Language immersion program, so he reads from right to left. Therefore, by listing UK first, he actually lists UK last, meaning he saved the best for first…I mean last.

    Hello Matt et al. This may not be the show thread but here I am anyway. I am listening to the podcast–I have a waterbed–there are 8 tubes that you fill with water. I LOVE my waterbed–my old on had a leek (after 15 years) so I just bought a new one. My waterbed is much more comfortable than a regular mattress. I am not a hippy or super rich. I just like comfort 🙂

    I love MKG, but does anybody else think $50 is a little steep for an autograph? I know it’s time for these guys to cash in a bit, but damn.

    i wish pearl could’ve stayed at 10ac. he was a colorful character (especially when he wore that vomitous orange jacket) and was fun to hate as a rival, like 2 stacks ricki is now. how we gonna hate that guy who’s there now? hell, he’s never said anything outlandish, he survived a battle with cancer, and he has a name that sounds like he should have his own saturday morning kiddie tv show

    Bruce sounds like he is trying to get an assistant coaching job with Cal. Call me crazy but he’s been to games, done interviews praising Cal and Cats etc. He may be trying to find his way back in.

    Hey #29 I feel your pain. I hate to complain because, for the most part, I love KSR’s work but KSR completely dropped the ball (pun intended) when it came to announcing autograph schedules. Granted the list for cardboard heroes was put out Friday so at least it’s a couple days notice but we already missed Eloy, he was Thursday. The biggest gaffe was not announcing Anthony Davis was signing at Etown Mall Friday! I mean the #1 pick in the nba draft is signing autographs and it’s not newsworthy?! Come on people…please do us all a favor and research future signings for Davis please!
