UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes

uk-fans-of-the-day-feb-10

A couple of notes on a dreary (in Tampa) and slow Thursday…

– Much of the talk nationally today has centered around the new NCAA Tournament schedule, which will now place every single tournament game on television.  With the addition of TBS, TNT and TruTV to CBS’ coverage, this goofy new 68-team tournament will get the best coverage in the history of the event.  Obviously, Matt Jones of CBSSports.com likes the upgrade.  So long as you don’t hold a grudge for them not adding Nancy Grace and her pantsuit to the studio booth, it’s hard to disagree.

– The Cats have Vandy in Nashville Saturday and that means the return of the goofiness that is Memorial Gymnasium.  From a fan perspective, gyms like Vandy’s home floor are kind of cool and add to the unique flavor that makes college basketball so great.  From a player’s perspective, it’s the worst.  Mike Pratt talked to Tom Leach this morning and said it was the worst road environment the Cats will face in the SEC.  On the pre-game show Saturday, Jared Prickett said UK players hate playing there and that you literally have to bend over to get through some of the doorways in the tunnel leading to the court.  Josh Harrellson, well, you can assume he’s not a fan either, but for different reasons.  Without question, a road victory Saturday in an awful environment can provide a boost of confidence for a team that has struggled mightily on the road.

 – Speaking of Vandy and tournaments, the Commodores will play tonight and then Saturday at noon (local time) against the Cats.  It’s a tournament-like schedule for Kevin Stallings’ team and one that, hopefully, leaves them a little heavy in the legs against the Cats.  Kentucky appears to already have better athletes in most positions.  The schedule could help them expose that a little more.

 – With about eleventy billion former Kentucky players in the NBA, we might need to hire an extra beat writer just to keep up with how they’re doing.  Last night was a good night for former Cats playing in The League and we should probably at least give them a fair mention today.  Here is how they fared:

DeMarcus Cousins – 19 points, 15 rebounds and one ejection
John Wall – 15 points and 6 assists
Eric Bledsoe – 16 points and 8 rebounds
Jodie Meeks – 17 points
Tayshaun Prince – 10 points
Nazr Mohammed – 9 points and 8 rebounds

 – As I’m sure you’ve probably heard, Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke are getting a lot of positive attention from NFL scouts right now and ESPN’s Todd McShay appears to be the primary love-maker at this point.  In his updated mock draft, McShay has Cobb going to the Ravens at #26.  It would be a great spot for Cobb for a lot of reasons, with joe Flacco and playing for a good team being major ones.  It would also allow Cobb to play with Anquan Boldin, with whom Wes Bunting of the National Football Post compared him, and learn from a player with a similar skill set how to develop from a slot receiver into an outside guy.  Cobb said at his farewell press conference that that was his goal.  Going to the Ravens seems to be a very nice fit.

 – Speaking of Cats in the NFL, former UK and Patriots safety Marcus McClinton is trying to go the singing route.  You likely know him from his “We Believe” days.  He’s now releasing (or released) and album titled “Grown Man”, which will also be BTI’s name for his debut album.  You can get a sample of him “Thinking and Drinking” here.

– We can’t finish this off without properly wishing a heartfelt Happy Birthday to Coach Cal.  He’s done a thing or two to earn your praise and well-wishes.  Feel free to leave him some love below.

Finally, if you missed the radio show this morning, Matt and Zach talked with Gregg Doyel, which is always solid, and they also discussed Shabazz Muhammad, Kentucky’s matchup with Vanderbilt and the case of the fake callers.  Take a listen to the podcast below.

    That blonde may just be the hottest chick to ever grace the KSR Fan of the Day. Somebody get a dance pole and some 7 inch heels. QUICKLY. That dude in the middle looks like he is playing with himself. Man that blonde is hot. Smokin hot. The brunette is hot too, but that blonde is on fire. wooooo!

    Oh, happy berfday Cal, it’s wasn’t so long ago that you came out all covered in placenta, and now look at you, the best coach for the best University in America!!

    #3 so how do you feel about the blonde?
    Dont forget Bogans, 7 points 2 rebounds 2 assists, although he might be in a lot of trouble since analysts say that what the Bulls need is a starting shooting guard which is what Bogans is doing.

    Speaking of fake callers, how come the caller Nate is never mentioned amongst the greatest fake callers that call the KSR show? He has one of the best Larry the Cable Guy impressions I’ve ever heard. If that’s not an impression, you could have fooled me!

    I love the KSR show and listen to the podcast every day, but I’m seriously getting tired of all the fake callers. The show is turning into a talent show instead of sports talk radio show. It’s getting rediculous. At least Matt has quit doing is Chris Cross impersonations with his constant promotions of Genesis Diamonds. Before you know it, Matt will be telling people to “Come ova hee!” and “GET OFF MY PHONE!”

    Clay Travis up to being a D-bag again and is saying Jorts looks like he’s “too dumb to spell his own name” and “he’s an idiot until someone proves to me otherwise” on the 3 Hour Lunch show here in Nashville.

    I say BBN blows this @ss up: Claytravisbgid is his twitter.

    That McClinton video might be one of the scariest I’ve seen. Enjoy the song but why are they sitting in lawn furniture drinking Bud ICE??? I imagine this more as what Drew does on the weekends.

    Does anyone know the MOST former UK players on NBA rosters at any one time??? I know I counted 14 at one time…back in the 90s when Mashburn and Walker were in the NBA.

    Not sure why people think the brunette on the left is hot. She is average at best, especially standing next to the blonde. The blonde is quite possibly the hottest chick ever on KSR. Right up there with that MSU girl that’s been posted quite a few times when ever we play the Bulldogs from Starkville.

    The blonde has high cheek bones which will allow her to accept a large package.

    No wonder Michigan State is struggling… It appears Izzo has retired, become a Kentucky fan, and is on the prowl.

    @ #27: Thanks for the link. BTW, did you happen to notice the first entry in her “favorite quotes” list? This is too funny…

    “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go”

    Sounds like she’s had trouble getting a job in the past, but finally found something that works for her. 😀
