Watch Matt in UNITE’s Blogger Throwdown

Matt Jones was invited to participate in the ESPN UNITE Blogger Throwdown last night against a kid from the University of Louisville, who turned out to be a very unworthy opponent.  Watch as Matt and his sniffing adversary debate Kentucky-Louisville topics on the ESPNU late night TV show.

The “Kentucky fans live in the past” argument is the worst.

    Boy the kid on the right looks like your typical douchebag linebeard UL fan.

    Did Matt happen to notice that his nose was whistling the whole interview?

    Good lord, that was like a one seed going up against a sixteen . . . where did they find that UL kid?

    That was outstanding. Absolute destruction.

    Frankly, I am surprised that the kid, along with the “live in the past” comment, didn’t break into the faulty line of reasoning that the goofy UL fans I know go to–that UK’s “tradition of racism” makes them a lesser program.

    UK fans live in the past? LOL!! So what bird fans are saying is, UK is living in the past because their non-ranked team might get beat by a top 5 team in the present??? So be it. It is great to be a UK fan because there IS a future. CL

    Lol, nice comment for the best fans argument chancy boy “we’ll uh, we make a large profit”. That was indeed a smack down.

    Matt didn’t suck as bad as the other guy. Almost, but not quite. How impressive.

    Wow…Chance…I weep for the Louisville if you are the best that “school” can produce…at no point were your arguments coherent, and quiet frankly, your inability to put words together to make sentences made you sound like a stuttering baboon.

    matt you should have brought up the fact that charlie strong told his fans to be more like uk fans, or how we have a top 25 attendance for 7 win seasons

    I would have liked to see Matt go up against Mike Rutherford from Card Chronicle. He was on KSR a couple of years ago and he would make it interesting.

    I hear that “living in the past” a lot from buckeye fans here a lot too. I don’t understand how the defending national champs can be “living in the past”. We haven’t even had a chance to repeat yet lol.

    ranked #12 going into the yum center two years ago. Not trying to nit pick, but it’s worth noting.

    That show is horrible. Think watching paint dry is more entertaining. Matt made this train wreck of a show passable.

    “Living in the past” is a common knock on UK fans by other fan bases who know nothing about UK and own the movie “Glory Road”. Duke was also against the idea of recruiting African American ball players, and had we not won the game then it would’ve been Duke with the negative image when it comes to that era of basketball. I think Chance did a great job of representing U of L fans by rambling incoherently, having full-blown li’l brother syndrome, looking like a d-bag, and throwing out meaningless stats….only thing missing was the Crown Royal bag around his neck.

    Poor Chance was a sheep in a Lion’s den. A lawyer vs. a student. Couldn’t that show have found a U of L equivalent like, say, Tony Vanetti?!?

    Gotta give you credit Matt. You did great on that. I stayed up and watched it live.

    Dirty Water, UK wasn’t against the idea of integrating the SEC in the ’60s. Remember, back then, both the SEC and ACC were all-white and made up of Southern universities. Integration was even encouraged by the university president John Oswald, and Rupp recruited the 1964 and 1965 Kentucky Mr. Basketballs, Butch Beard and Wes Unseld. But neither of their parents wanted their sons to be the first to endure the “haters” at SEC road games in the Deep South. Imagine Rupp’s Runts with Unseld at center instead of Thad Jaracz. UK would’ve won the title, and “Glory Road” would’ve never been made.

    Great job Matt! That kid had no chance. What is he talking about, Kentucky fans live in the past, present and future!

    Matt Jones and a no name UL student on a show or whatever it’s called that no one has ever heard of…simply riveting. Let me know when PTI calls.

    Matt,
    I don’t think that any UL fan could have done any better than this kid, but you killed it on the debate simply because you had all the weapons in hand…..the truth! UK IS BETTER!

    Nice delivery BTW! You had your homework done and all your ducks in a row. Excellent argument.

    Matt was nice to the UL fan, but still defeated him.
