Kentucky Sports Radio

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

We’re at UK Football Media Day! (Monday Show Thread)

media-day

The Kentucky Sports Radio radio show is back in the gentle, moisturized hands of Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond and ready for UK football discussion after a weeklong excursion in Alaska. Tune in this morning to hear your favorite radio duo live from inside the confines of Commonwealth Stadium. If it’s anything like last year, Matt will interview the coaches and paint the scene in the second hour, barefoot, of course.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    Glad Matt and the guys are back… Matthew Mitchell was great, Mike Pratt was good, Jennifer Palumbo and Jeremy Jarmon wasn’t bad, but they were slow…some of it was because of the callers, and Brian Milam and Dusty Bonner was decent, The Truth trash talking with Dusty was great! Tony Vanetti was awful, and I dont know why because I like him when he’s on with Matt… but thanks to Joanne, he hosted the best moment of last week!

    I have missed the KSR Crew! Can we just play football now?! Feels like fall, and NFL was back on NBC last night. I am ready!
    Also ready for some story time with Uncle Matt about Alaska.

    It’s Mandy Connells last show this week, I am sad, she got her first gun when she was two and I got my first fur coat when I was two.

    So what is going on right now, is it replaying some old interview?

    Sitting in opening day here at my school and Judge Ray Corns is one funny man! Have you heard him speak Matt?

    I like how Neil has a repeated “alright” or “ok” in his conversation

    “We gonna coach you to be great, ‘alright’, now we need you to go out there and produce”

    We are going to be able to score points at a high level. There is no doubt about it. If our defense can be somewhat respectable, most of the teams on our schedule need to watch the hell out.

    Best question EVER by Ryan. Must of had his Wheaties this morning.

    One of many differences between the old and new staffs. These guys can’t wait to get on the air and talk to the fans. Before they acted like they were being hassled.

    hey matt can you fill us in on the status of the 2 twins from Pitt? You’d mentioned they may be able to appeal and play immediately, and I dont know if the coaches can comment or not. Thanks



  25. pinkukfan

    12. – I got on here to ask the same thing. It’s driving me crazy!



  26. Kidnut

    It is unlikely that the Pitt twins win their appeal.

    If nothing else – this new Football Staff at least consistently sound like they’re having fun, which is a nice change from the norm

    Who’s ready for some football in the bluegrass?! Let’s really get behind this team and this staff. It’s time to change the atmosphere in and around CWS. Be Loud Stand up and let’s make CWS THE most hostile environment and get an energy that the players can feed off of. It’s gonna be a fun season, a good change is coming and a nation is awakening. Lets go BBN!!

    While this format of radio can be interesting and fun – it’s tough to keep the show thread moving because we’re all just intently listening and there’s no real conversation to get involved in

    Don’t lie, Alan Cutler did not just walk up – he’s been chasing barefoot-mobile-Matt for the last half hour Billy-G-style

    Please for the love of God, take a call while Cutler is on the air.

    That guy’s high if he think Towles is the starter. He must have missed the spring game where he was the 4th best quarterback on the roster.



  39. Bluegrass

    Alan Cutler calling Ryan fat is like Paula Dean calling people racists



  40. pinkukfan
    10:58 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    34 and 35, you may not like “U of K” but it’s in the lyrics of our fight song, so I doubt it’s going anywhere.



  41. Awaiting Moderation
    10:59 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    People need to get off the towles thing…he was garbage in the spring game. Whitlow has the chance to be like Braxton Miller.

    “I honestly sleeping better” knowing Mark Stoops is in charge of this program.

    So is Ryan Lemmond’s nickname, “The Midget”?



  46. Kidnut
    11:04 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    The fight song is over 90 years old, way to complain about the “of” now.



  47. Delk for 3

    41 — Having a poor spring game doesn’t mean much of anything. Patrick still has a chance to earn playing time this season.



  48. Kidnut
    11:08 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    Matt, we need a different question asked by you, every coach is giving you the same answer.



  49. I'M ALL IN

    COACH STOOPS MAKES EVERYBODY FILL LIKE THEY’RE PART OF THE TEAMS SUCCESS. EVERYBODY HAS TO DO THERE PART(PLAYERS,COACHES,MEDIA,FANS). I’M GETTING MY BLUE COLLAR UK SHIRT READY! GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!!

    55 No offense taken…. Auto correct believe it or not was the culprit.



  59. CATandMONKEY
    11:28 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    Whitlow needs to be on the field in some capacity for the majority of offensives possessions. The man is an athlete and gives us a lot of options.
    Towles has natural gifts that if optimized, guarantee a starting spot down the road. We have seen flashes but Patrick still needs to deliver an entire game at his max level.

    Vince Marrow for US Senate.

    Did Max say he did not have surgery to repair his shoulder?



  61. Linda Taylor
    11:30 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    56 – Check out the team pic in a newer post. I think Gruenschlager is in the 4th from the bottom row. It’s hard to tell for sure but it looks like he is 3rd or 4th from the right. That kid towers over everybody else.

    58 – I have a terrible time when I try to post from the UKHoops games on my Kindle Fire. When I try to type Azia Bishop’s name it always changes it to
    Asia no matter what I do. It’s so frustrating. At least on my computer it just underlines it in red and leaves it there.

    So did Matt get in trouble for not wearing shoes?

    Some sort of code violation?

  65. Karl Hungus
    11:37 am August 5, 2013 Permalink

    @60 the rehab for surgery is lengthy and the improvement over non-surgical options is slight. when i separated mine a few years back, the doc said only in the most severe cases is surgery mandatory. in either case, his shoulder will never be the same and more apt to separate again.
