    So I paid no attention to the Thamel story so I have no idea what it was about (only that it was attacking NN) but now I hear he may miss the Duke game. What is going on?! Is the story BS or does it carry weight

    Hey Matt, sorry I missed your call. I was up in Syracuse poking my voodoo doll of Antoine Walker and a pre-Porcinis Pitino. I haven’t been sleeping well lately due to nightmares of Tony Delk and the boys schooling my Orange back in ’96. We were SO close, but NO you dumbcats had to RUIN it. Yeah, we won in ’03, but I was long gone and Melo…well…is difficult to root for. Bottom line: in a nutshell, I’m butthurt 16+ years later. Sorry, gotta go, the Fines are here for some non-discrete action.

  26. JayCee

    No offense, but he’s a former walk-on. That has to be concerning on some level when staring at the SEC.

    Ive been with KSR since the beginning. But for someone that just lost their job of 15 years do to the economy, it does get under my skin how people take their job for granted.

    The running game has to improve this year. UK ranked 11 out of 12 in the SEC in rush yards per game and 90th in the nation. Avg yards per carry = 3.5. If you cannot control the clock and pick-up first downs, you will not win football games.

    Drew dug too deep into Thamel’s past and Thamel had him knocked off….

    3-9 would be fine with me, because it would mean forward motion for the future our program. Call me a bad fan… I don’t care.



  32. TylerH
    10:14 am August 24, 2012 Permalink

    It would make me satisfied to either a) win 5 games and the product on the field is drastically improved from last year, or b) get 6 and go to a bowl game because Joker would stay and I want him to succeed.



  33. thewaitfor8
    10:14 am August 24, 2012 Permalink

    I feel bad for Clemons. If the guy can ever get healthy he’s going to be good. But if it takes him a few weeks to even be ready, we might just have to redshirt him b/c he isn’t going to be mid-season SEC ready if he isn’t healthy until week 3.

    64 — Without a doubt, the average kids’ education received at a Catholic school in Louisville is a lot better than a public school education. There are some decent advanced programs at schools in Louisville (especially Manual) but overall, on average, your kid is much better off at a Catholic school if you can pay for it.

    Well to take it a step further, if you cheat and it propels you to mega star status worth more money than 90% of people, then don’t ethics come into play? Especially when you promote yourself as someone of high morals/ethics and the idea that with willpower you can accomplish anything.

    Our offense stunk last year b/c we had two QBs with the latter inexperienced as a starter. The O Line ended up stinking. We didn’t have great depth in WR and RB spots, so when injuries came to those positions, we tanked.

    If UK can stay healthy, I think our offense will be much improved.
