Wednesday’s Would You Rathers (On Thursday!)

Welcome back to Wednesday’s Would You Rathers!  Today may be Thursday, but don’t fret!  It’s not because I hit ‘save’ on the post last night instead of schedule, I promise.  Last week we learned that the majority of you were celebrating after the win on Sunday, most of you would sacrifice Football recruiting for Basketball, pretty much all of you think you could make an open three at the end of the game to beat Ole Miss, and you couldn’t really decide if you’d rather hang with Billy or Rick.  Understandable.

But, the none too surprising revelations won’t stop us from having another edition of Would You Rathers.  As always, post your answers in the comment section and send your suggestions for questions to [email protected]


1.) Would you rather have Bruce Pearl be fired or continue on as Tennessee’s Head Coach?

2.) Would you rather read a daily 10 am post from BTI or Pete Thamel?

3.) Would you rather have dinner with Coach Calipari or Ashley Judd?

4.) Would you rather play Truth or Dare with Bobby Knight or Jerry Tarkanian?

5.) Would you rather Jorts or Jones take the last second three to win the National Championship?

6.) Would you rather wear the Scotty Hopson hairdo or the Matt Walsh?

    Continue. BTI. Cal. Knight. Jorts. Walsh, I’m white.

    1.) Continue on. I love to see him bring TU down, and he sucks against us.
    2.) BTI. I actually like BTI.
    3.) Coach Cal. I have no love interest in Ashley Judd and I think Calipari would be far more interesting to listen to when it comes to basketball.
    4.) Bobby Knight.
    5.) Jones
    6.) Matt Walsh; I’m white, so I could pull it off a little better than Scotty’s.

    1. Keep him as head coach. The rivalry is more fun, and he’s good for the SEC.
    2. BTI
    3. Cal, I really like basketball…okay I don’t like basketball that much. Ashley hands down.
    4. Tark, I want to know what all happened back in the early 90’s.
    5. Jones, because he’s been clutch in the last five min.
    6. Matt Walsh’s do was SWEET!!!

    1) Fired, I have no confidence Tennessee’s athletic department won’t completely screw up and have the basketball program be miserable for years. At least with Pearl they’ll typically field a competitive team.

    2) Neither

    3) Coach Cal.

    4) Bobby Knight

    5) Jones

    6) Walsh

    1.) Keep him. My brother-in-law runs a bail-bond firm in Knoxville and he needs the business Pearl’s program sends his way.

    2.) I’m old-school. I’ve read more by 10 a.m. that most people will read all day. By then it doesn’t matter.

    3.) I’d rather dine with Calipari. I can stomach Cal’s wacky program-building schemes more than I can stomach Judd’s wacky politics.

    4.) Bobby Knight. The truth may be laced with flying F-bombs and flying chairs, but you’ll at least know it’s sincere. Tark would simply try to seduce you into a Las Vegas hottube filled with middle-aged bookies.

    5.) Jorts. He could parlay that celebrity into a book-tour, endorsements and a good paycheck after basketball. Jones will likely be signing a seven-figure check next season whether he hits another three this season or not.

    6.) Give me the Lou-Do. (You youngin’s check out Illinois from a decade or more ago.)

    Scotty without a doubt.

    1)Keep Pearl I love beating him like a dirty dish rag
    3)I’d rather wine & dine & “well u know”
    5)Jorts from the top of the key
    6)I’d rather sport a mullet than either

    1) keep him as coach. He can’t beat us
    2)BTI. He does an ok job.
    3) Cal.
    4) the general. Even though he coached at a rival school. He is one of my all time favorites.
    5) Jorts hits a three to beat Duke.
    6) Scotty. He’s a Kentucky boy.

    11 the problem is, the bowl of ice cream has chopped up penises in it

    12 Good, Jorts’ wang is so filling, it has a name- you may have seen it at Hardees? “The Little Thick Burger”

    Now I’ll pose another question for you gents: would you rather commit suicide, or marry the woman you love?

    1. Fired and all hell brought down upon the UT basketball program relegating it back to irrelevance.
    2. BTI
    3. Cal, he would be way more interesting
    4. Bobby Knight so I can dare him to go jump off a cliff
    5. Jorts because I think he would make it
    6. Walsh

    8:45 pm February 10, 2011 Permalink

    1.) Tennessee Head Coach. He makes it fun and a rivalry
    2.) BTI of course
    3.) Ashley Judd. Cal would just dominate the conversation and only talk about what he wants to. No reason to slip him a Mickey at all either
    4.) Jerry Tarkanian. Knight is a worthless douche. I would just leave if he came into any room I was in and started talking
    5.) In order: Lamb, Knight, Miller, Jorts, Liggins, Hood, Jones, Poole, Vargas, Polson
    6.) Matt Walsh. The white curly fro is awesome

    1) keep him. It makes it easier to hate UT.
    2) BTI
    4) Knight
    5) Jorts, then he goes on to run for governor in 2029 and wins by landslide.
    6) Scotty (Walsh is gay!)

    1. Keep Pearl. He Jesus nuevo.
    2. BTI…I dont’ really understand the loathing of him. He seems nice, but not exceptionally bright. But that can be said about most people.
    3. Ashley Judd. I don’t want to get laid by Cal. Atleast I would have my one shot at it.
    4. Bobby Knight. I’ve probably been dared to do worst than anything he could think of.
    5. Toss up. Harrelson can shoot from there and god knows Jones has had plenty of practice during the season. I think I would be fine with either…better than not taking the shot…(clears throat) Miller.
    6.Hopson. It’s awesome!

    8:59 pm February 10, 2011 Permalink

    1-Keep him He makes the rivalry interesting and we still beat them like a drum
    2-BTI. He may be an idiot, but he’s our idiot. 🙂
    3-Ashley. Much easier on the eyes and a 2 way conversation will be possible.
    4-Tark. Life is too short to spend time with a$$holes like Booby.

    1) Would you rather win the right way or continue to have a coach who pays for players?
    2) Would you rednecks rather have a free double wide or marry your hottest cousin?
    3) Would you rather use a Moutain Dew bottle or the floor of your 85 Ford pickup as your dip cup?
    4) Would you rather lick Cal’s bloated gut or kiss Terrence Jones oversized lower jaw?
    5) Would you rather keep your flowing mullet or cut your hair to be able to afford to see a dentist?
    6) Would you rather get a third mortgage on the trailer, in order to travel with the Cayuts or use the proceeds to rent out the trailer park clubhouse for a family reunion?

    1. Pearl at UT. he is a clown, but he makes the conference interesting.
    2. Dude gets too much crap. He brings it everyday whether you agree with him or not.
    3. Ashley. I’d try to slip her a roofie.
    4. Bob Knight. Not even close.
    5. Jorts. If he makes it, he is a legend.
    6. Hopson. But, I would rather have Tark’s dome if given a third option.

    2. Comic books, AARP brochures, and Fox news blogs don’t count.
    3. Neither, for you try Pitino @ Porcinis
    4 If you have anything nice to say about Boob Knight you are not only and old fool but truly a moron.
    5. 1 out of 6 ins’t bad for a “Special Needs” fool

    1.) Continue on…He’s built them into a decent type program that can compete for sweet 16’s or elite 8’s but they’ll never actually be a quality team. He brings in talent. He’s good for the SEC. We need another program to be “relevant” in the SEC. It helps UK, in my opinion.

    2. BTI…obviously

    3. Ashley Judd…having dinner with a man is kinda weird. Dinner with a buddy is alright but Cal is a man.

    4.) Tark…why? Because Bobby Knight would be unbelievably annoying. I would pick Knight if for no other reason than to piss him off.

    5.) Jorts…easily a better three shooter than Jones and I agree with #44 it would be the best ever.

    6.) Hopson…Matt Walsh hair is ridiculous.

    Don’t know if this is the right place to point this out but…

    There is currently a poll on ESPN asking “what event are you most looking forward to?”. Kentucky is one of two states in which “NCAA Frozen Four” is the #1 choice. Just so everybody knows, that is hockey, not basketball. I appreciate our enthusiasm, but please read the whole question and all the answers.

    1. Continue. I was a fan of his before his days at UT.
    2. BTI. When Thamel runs some drivel, he gets fans across the country buying into his bull. Those of us who don’t live in Kentucky have to deal with fans who think what he says is actually true.
    3. Cal. If we were younger, I’d teach her the meaning of the phrase “across the nail”.
    4. Tark.
    5. Jones, but it would be cool if he could get the ball to Lamb.
