UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Radio Ron posed with two UK fans during a game-watch party in Louisville for the Governor’s Cup. Ron and his arm candy are today’s UK Fans of the Day and they want some notes and a podcast.

— It’s a new week for Kentucky football and the Louisville game is no more. Joker Phillips met with the media after this morning’s practice to discuss what he saw on the tape from that game and what needs to change in Saturday’s game against Kent State in Commonwealth. One of things he emphasized was UK’s defensive line didn’t look all that bad after reviewing film, and most of the blame from the front seven should be on the linebackers. They will have to play better. Look for more playing time from the young guys if the veterans don’t perform.

— The biggest news out of practice today is Aaron Boyd’s emergence as a starter at wide receiver. Fans have wanted to see Boyd live up to the hype since he signed with UK as a four-star prospect in 2008, and now he has a chance to show them he can be a reliable wide receiver. Boyd has really buckled down and gone to work so far in his senior year. Joker said, “He shut his mouth and started to play.”

Scroll down for more from UK’s practice from Rashawn.

— In basketball news, Karl Towns finally has an offer from UK but the Cats might not be the favorite like many assume. According to InsideTheGator.com, Karl Towns Sr. believes Florida is his son’s “dream school.” That’s not what we want to hear after he spent the summer with Coach Cal on the Dominican Republic national team.

— Hahaha… Thomas Robinson said he’s going to win NBA Rookie of the Year. Hahahahaha. Oh man, that’s good. (Link includes quotes from Terrence Jones)

— Matt and Ryan were back on the air this morning after the three-day weekend to discuss Kentucky’s loss in the season opener and what it means for Joker’s future at Kentucky. Have a listen in today’s podcast

    Anybody else starting to wonder if Thomas Robinson is KU’s version of Chane Behanan?

    5 – I wouldn’t be talking like that. You don’t want Chane and the gang laying it down on your Kitty Cayuts in the Yum Center. If the football game is any indication…

    Karl Towns isnt going anywhere but UK. It would be a little obvious if he didnt explore his options, or just up and signed with with Kentucky right after the Olympics.

    6) You had your shot in the Final Four & lost. That was the meal, Banya.

    6- leave it to a dufus card fan to use that kinda moronic logic. “hey, we beat you in football, so clearly, that means we will beat you in basketball”. shut up, just shut up.

    Billy Clyde has high blood pressure. Maybe he should lock himself in the locker room until he’s “toughened up”.

    Hopefully ESPN doesn’t send Jeannine Edwards to check on Gillispie.

    Mrs. Tyler Thompson made a guest appearance in the Women of UK calendar?

    I’ll be very disappointed if Karl Towns ends up playing for anyone except Coach Cal. I’ve become quite attached to the kid through Twitter. Seems like a really good, down-to-earth kid. And he wears UK clothing. Come on, Karl!

    What do yall expect Thomas Robinson to say, “No, there’s no chance I’ll win rookie of the year?” Just a kid trying to make a name for himself, just like every one of our cats

    Sound logic has no place here, these writers have a short memory for good reason. They acted like Wall was the best thing since sliced bread, Enes was the second coming and now its Davis turn for the overhype machine, the same guy that was shut down in the title game by Jeff freakin Withey.

    [email protected] robinson, i thought he was an ok guy until i watched how he acted at the draft. hes a punk and will always be anthony davis’ female dog. and @6 why would a football game be any indication of how a basketball game played almost 4 months later turns out?

    I want to ask Radio Ron, about the girlie on the right…Is that factory air? or after market? Either way, I like(once a boob man, always a boob man)

    14 – Quit trying. These people don’t understand stuff like that. If you don’t think Thomas Robinson is good enough to win ROY, then you don’t know sh!t about the game.
