UK Fan of the Day Wants Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Nat Reynolds of Frankfort, KY is your UK fan of the Day. Everyone say hi and thank Nat for his service.

Notes…

— Don’t forget to support the UK Hoops team tonight! The tenth-ranked Kentucky women’s basketball team plays host to No. 5 Duke in Rupp Arena tonight at 6:00 p.m. The game will be televised live in Lexington on the CW or you can watch the live stream on ESPN 3. It’ll also be tape delayed on Fox Sports South at 10:00 p.m. Matthew Mitchell’s team is 8-0 and looking to get a win in what’ll be the biggest non-tournament game of the season. Go. Big. Blue. Go. Big. Blue.

— Former KSR radio star Big EZ will be on SportsCenter today at 3:30 ET to talk about the Pujols deal. He’s so big time now and we’re proud of his success.

— Jeff Borzello of Blood over at CBSSports.com ranked the Freshman of the Year candidates. Anthony Davis is No. 1 and MKG is No. 4 on his list:

1. Anthony Davis, Kentucky: He might not have the best scoring numbers of any freshman, but he’s a tremendous rebounder and he’s going to set plenty of shot-blocking records.

2. Cody Zeller, Indiana: Zeller is doing a little bit of everything and is the primary reason the Hoosiers are off to an 8-0 start. How will he handle going against UK’s fresh faces on Saturday?

3. Brad Beal, Florida: Beal might have been No. 1 if not for his struggles the past two games. He shot 6-for-18 in his last two contests, totaling 16 points. Rebounding very well for his position.

4. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kentucky: Might be the best all-around frosh in the country; he just does so much at both ends of the floor. Had the most impressive performance in the UK-UNC game.

— The Orlando-Sentinel says the Magic will almost certainly agree to a deal with DeAndre Liggins. Liggins is already in Orlando with the team. But with so many franchises chasing after Dwight Howard, DeAndre might not want to get too comfortable. The Magic roster will be turned upside down if they decide to deal Howard.

Tragedy struck Virginia Tech again as there was another shooting on campus today. Two people were shot and killed, including a police officer, and then gunman is still on the loose. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and everyone in the Virginia Tech community. Awful, awful news. Please catch the shooter before it gets worse.

— Matt talked about Indiana and Vienna sausage on this morning’s radio show. Take a listen…

    The VT shooter is still on the loose…that person apprehended on footsteps of campus building was not suspect.

    2. & 3. — Huffington Post reported it and I went with it. My bad.

    Let’s just hope they catch the shooter soon.

    When I saw this headline I seriously thought it was a really clever joke about UL’s out of conference schedule.

    Huffington Post? We’re getting our “news” from the Huffinton Post, now? Try CNN, FOX News, or hell even MSNBC. Huffington Post, hahahaha.

    Matt should not have offered the truth the hosting gig if Indiana wins by 20. A small part of me will now be rooting for just that.

    Drew, why censor my feedback? It was honest and actually half pleasant. I even said you used to be my favorite KSR writer (if you call yourself one). I’m beginning to believe you wear panties. Billy G would say you need to get tougher.

    Anyone with knowledge on Women’s Bball…. Which is a more likely scenario tonight at 6pm : Duke winning margin is greater than total number of 3’s UK make. basically means will Duke win by double digits or will UK women win or keep it in the singles

    8, I’d rather have my news from the Danville Advocate than CNN, Fox, or MSNBC. You do know they only tell you what they want you to hear right? CNN has been in trouble so many times it’s not even funny.

    #8 – hopefully you dont get your world news from a self-proclaimed ridiculous fan site. that would be absurd…

    Don’t expect to watch the Lady Hoops vs the devil on ESPN3, aka Watch Espn and formerly known as espn360 (whats up with the name changes?). At this time ALL SEC states (Texas and MO not in the SEC yet) are BLACKOUT.

    #28 – Pay attention, bro. I never said I received my ‘news’ from ksr. The author of this thread was making an excuse for why he made an error in reporting ‘news.’ He blamed the Huffington Post for his mistake – which was utilizing a site like the Huffington Post for anything resembling news.

    And yes (origional author), I would much rather get NEWS from CNN, FOX News, and MSNBC for news unrelated to politics. I would say that most would view them just a wee bit more reliable than the Huff Post. I’m sure you don’t, but educated / non-libs would probably agree.

    Ladies are down 3 at the half. As a team they look nervous…airballing a few threes, missing many free throws and wide open short jumpers. Mathies must have had 5 turnovers in first few minutes as she could not throw a pass to the inside. If they settle down they should win this game.
    GO LADY C-A-T-S C-A-T-S C-A-T-S
