Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

We want YOU to vote for the KSR/GOTC SEC Tournament Statewide Challenge winners

POWERBALL1-articleLarge

The KSR/GOTC SEC Tournament Statewide Challenge has come to an end, with a whopping 31 teams sending in pictures from across the state. The challenge: each two-person team travels to eight of 30 locations across the state, snaps a picture at each stop in the most ridiculous manner possible and sends it to KSR. Extra points were rewarded for creativity, length traveled and celebrity cameos.

First of all, we were floored by the response to this contest. When Matt, Drew and I first discussed it on Monday, we expected maybe a handful of people to participate. The fact that 31 teams completed the challenge and many more attempted is a testament to the passion and creativity of the BBN. To show our gratitude, ALL of the 31 teams that don’t receive a prize will receive tickets to a UK game in the next year. Matt will contact you with details.

Here are the THREE MAIN PRIZES:

GRAND PRIZE: Two lower arena SEC Tournament ticket books
RUNNER-UP: Two upper arena SEC Tournament ticket books
2ND RUNNER UP: Tickets to the UK Sessions at the SEC Tournament (upper arena)

Because of the overwhelming response, we need your help picking them. Matt, Drew, and I narrowed the field of 31 to 7 finalists, but from there, it’s up to you. From noon to 2 p.m. ET, please vote for your top choice in the poll below. The first and second vote-getters will receive the grand and runner-up prizes, respectively. Matt, Drew and I will then decide who wins the 2nd runner-up prize.

mulletcat2

Before I reveal the finalists, we would like to award HONORABLE MENTION to Mullet Cat. Unfortunately, we specified in the rules that “you must have at least one other person with you in the picture.” Sadly, cats are not people, but our feline friend is not going home empty handed. Mullet Cat and his owner will receive TWO TICKETS to Kentucky’s first game in this year’s NCAA Tournament. And some extra catnip for his/her troubles.

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for…the SEVEN FINALISTS for the KSR/GOTC SEC Tournament Statewide Challenge:

Dustin Lueker and Mother (Big blue overalls)
Dustin and his mother got extra points for their costumes and KSR inside jokes.

Craig Gilliland and wife (funny fatheads)
Craig and his pregnant wife had a special fat head for each stop.

C-HopkinsvilleMike Phillips 78
Matt Vaughn and Friend (spelled out Wildcats & picture with Mike Phillips)

BFMaco2CIAAufuU.jpg_largends-image

Cory and his gal were nearly nude for most of the challenge and finished minutes before the deadline.

    Tough call. Kudos to those that attempted and those that completed the contest. Something tells me that SnNH will vote for the one that is naked. Or maybe it is Ashley Miller’s friend who always seems primed and ready by only showing the backside. Or maybe those with their faces covered because it reminds SnNH of putting a pillow over someone’s face. Or Lance and Cody because everyone likes to eat at the Y. Tough call. Good luck to all.

    Had to vote for Lance and Cody since they’re my cousins. I also liked the famous UK moments group. I’m guessing Mullet Cat is already taken care of, that’s why he wasn’t included.

    Mullet Cat was by far the best. These other jabronis couldn’t hold mullet cats finely quaffed locks and headband. This is a classic example of cat mullet discrimination and I for one won’t stand for it.

    13, I can definitely identify with what Mullet Cat’s owner had to endure, after listening to our own feline members of our family yowl and caterwaul on a 30-minute drive to the vet. The radio just doesn’t go loud enough to cover that!

    Why can’t we see all 8 pictures for each finalist? All I can see is a couple for each one. We want to see them all!

    So mullet cat gets 2 tickets to Kentucky’s opening round of the NCAA Tourney…..which in all likely hood will be out West….which will probably cost him another 2/3 hundred dollars to drive/fly there if he’s lucky not counting lodging, kitty litter, or Fancy Feast….add that to all the money he spent chasing down those pictures…all the while those pictures of mullet cat absolutely have driven traffic to your site, thus generating revenue….mullet cat definitely is going to take one in the financial keyster because of you clowns…nice job…#FreeMulletCat
