UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

cousins

Big Cuz was hanging out with fans in the eRupption Zone on Saturday. Is it too late to cancel the NBA season?

Let’s get you a few notes…

Kentucky is the No. 1 team in all of the land for the second week in a row. Kentucky received 47 of the 65 first place votes in the AP poll and 19 of the 31 votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll. North Carolina moved up a spot to No. 4 in the AP poll and dropped to sixth in the coaches. Louisville moved up to No. 5 and No. 4 in the polls, giving us hope of a potential 1 vs. 2 matchup on New Year’s Eve. I would love for Kentucky to hand the Cards their first loss of the season.

— Our man Chuck Hayes could be returning home once the NBA season gets underway again. Yahoo! is reporting that Sacramento has emerged as the frontrunner to sign the former Kentucky star. Hayes is from nearby Modesto, California so it could be a dream situation if a deal is offered. Plus we would get to see the Hayes-Cousins duo down low for the Kings.

— Jarrod Polson used Twitter to ask his followers to participate in an upcoming White Boy Academy Christmas music video. You should offer your services.

— Also on the tweeter device, Coach Cal told fans going to the Indiana game to wear red over the top of your blue and leave it on until the player introductions. It was a response to his good buddy Tom Crean saying, “KEEP THE BLUE OUT OF ASSEMBLY HALL ON SATURDAY!” Crean told his fans to keep Kentucky fans out of the seats and dominate this building with cream and crimson.

Mike Pratt was on this morning’s radio show to discuss all things Kentucky basketball and Chad Ford. Have a listen…

    Somewhere in Indiana, Tom Crean’s attorney is sweating…
    Tom: “KEEP BLUE OUT OF ASSEMBLY HALL”
    Indiana Fan: “I’m gonna beat the crap out of this UK fan outside the arena”
    UK Fan: “Tom, please make the check out to my attorney, The Heavy Hitter”

    Hoosier (play /ˈhuːʒər/) is the official demonym for a resident of the U.S. state of Indiana. Although residents of most U.S. states typically adopt a derivative of the state name, e.g., “Indianan” or “Indianian”, natives of Indiana rarely use these. Indiana adopted the nickname “Hoosier State” more than 150 years ago.[1] “Hoosiers” is also the nickname for the Indiana University athletic teams. Hoosier is sometimes used in the names of Indiana-based businesses and organizations. In the Indiana High School Athletic Association, seven active athletic conferences and one disbanded conference have the word Hoosier in their name.

    In other parts of the country, the word has been adapted to other uses. In St. Louis, Missouri, the word is used in a derogatory fashion similar to “hick” or “white trash”.[2] “Hoosier” also refers to the cotton-stowers, both black and white, who move cotton bales from docks to the holds of ships, forcing the bales in tightly by means of jackscrews. A low-status job, it nevertheless is referred to in various sea shanty lyrics. Shanties from the Seven Seas[3] includes lyrics that mention hoosiers. Hoosier at times can also be used as a verb describing the act of tricking or swindling someone…………

    To be totally honest I am nervous about this game. I mean I wasn’t really that nervous until I read in the comments section that this one guy’s friend John has been a UK fan forever and he’s nervous. I know it’s easy to overlook a team who’s player look like Opie Taylor and Spock from Star Trek. But those boys really can ball. I’m not joking either. Did you see what they did to Stetson last night?

    9-yeah they had a 3 point lead 10 seconds before halftime at home to stetson….. IU needs to outscore us by 10+ either half to have a chance

    6. “Hoosier” here, meaning native resident of Indiana. Folks are from Kentucky and I grew up in a pro-UK small town about 1/2 hour north of Louisville.

    I’ve made countless trips to Kentucky and I’ve been all over Indiana.

    Ummm, don’t fool yourself. 😉

    Also, ran into Coach Crean at the local gas station (we live on the same road) getting coffee. He was at the coffee station and I was standing behind him with my UK thermos. He looked RIGHT at it first thing. Then he said “How are you sir?” I just made small talk about the coffee.

    Inside, I was so proud to be holding that thermos, but I was also impressed with his politeness. Good guy. No way Knight in the situation would have been that cool. I ran into Knight walking through Memorial Union at IU once and he tried to stare a hole through me, as if to dare me to even speak to him. What an upgrade in class.

    This could be a trap game, and it will probably be closer than we want, but I don’t give the Hoosiers much of a shot.

    TLDR; Kentuckians shouldn’t even consider talking down to Indiana residents (hillbilly-wise it isn’t close), Crean is a cool guy, GO BIG BLUE – we will win

    9. Now if that one guy’s friend John has been a UK fan forever and he’s nervous. Then we should not even send our players for the fact we will be destroyed on the bball court! lmao.

    This should be a fun game. Coach Cal and Coach Crean are very good friends and they will both play this game up as much as possible.

    19) – Agree. #4 Puke looses by 22 to #2 Ohio St and only dropped 1 position. But #9 Florida looses by 4 to #3 Syracuse and they drop 3 spots.

    1) So Crean told a bunch of idiots to keep Kentucky fans out of the arena… We all know he meant not to sell tickets to UK fans, but something tells me there’ll be problems with stupid IU fans literally trying to make Kentucky fans leave.

    So much for a trap game at IU. UK will have a week to prepare for the game, and IU can’t stop talking sh!t. I hope UK puts a beat down on them. When was the last big game IU has played in? I do not expect their players to be able to handle it for 40 minutes.

    Trap game…maybe! Before we downplay Indiana we need to remember we only had a 5 point lead over ODU at the half and finally pulled away in the last 5 minutes of the game to win by 10. We are the most talented team in college basketball that being said even great teams have off nights. Don’t think that will be the case this weekend as we wear Indiana down and put it away late by 10 to 15.
