Kentucky Sports Radio

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

We’re Big Blue fans in the morning (Friday Show Thread)


Just because.

Welcome everybody (**Matt Jones voice**) to another fun-filled radio show with Kentucky Sports Radio. Today we’re talking about the Harrison twins, Trey Lyles, Jalen Whitlow, Rupp Arena delays and much, much more.

Matt Jones is in Louisville with no U of L hats in sight, hopefully, and Ryan Lemond is in Lexington, gasping for air, after our rigorous boxing workout this morning.

Oh we’re Big Blue fans in the morning.

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

    Uncle matt, are you going to miss Mandy? I wish that KSR would get moved to WHAS. That would take care of the NKY listeners.
    I wish I could go the fan thing tonight but I won’t πŸ™

    Yesterday’s first hour was awesome! That is the KSR I like, just needed a call from J-Rock and Fake Barney! I believe we are nearing a window where we could see the site redesign. My guess is sometime between the tennis tournament in Cincinnati and the US Open. If it doesn’t happen then, I believe the next window could be October right before basketball, and if not then, then maybe December.

    Matt, we freeze our syrup. Other restaurants do not.



  21. Bluegrass
    10:12 am August 9, 2013 Permalink

    There IS a formula to fountain drinks.

    Fountain drinks come in bags which contain the syrup and then the machine mixes the syrup with carbonated water. Every restaurant/theater/etc has to figure out the formula of percentages of how much of each to mix. McDonald’s has a very specific formula of percentages that every store has to adhere to – thus they all taste the same at every location.

    The coke and diet coke are so good at Mickie d’s because they clean the soda lines daily and keep the soda water and syrup regulator where coke says to, unlike most places that keep the water to syrup higher to keep profit margins up. You’re the man uncle Matt and Chet is awesome too.

    Matt, I think your critique of the tattoo was fine, but your added commentary to the poor guy about not showing his butt (despite how accurate) could have been excluded. Thats like going up to an actor you admire while hes at dinner and them saying, “hey good to see you, but you really shouldn’t come up to me while I’m eating, nice meeting you though”. He probably just feels rebuffed.



  42. Jeff Garlin

    I was a GM for McD’s for 30 yrs and the secret is we have Coke come in once a week or so and they calibrate all soft drinks and clean and sanitize the system. Most restaurants do not do this and they are nasty.

    I hate to say it, but I can remember back a few years when Joker said UK was going to compete for an SEC championship and that the players looked like “real SEC-caliber players”. That being said, from a recruiting perspective alone, it is obvious that Stoops and co. really have their s**t together to a much higher degree, and Stoops has made somewhat of an effort to temper expectations about this season. I think by his third season – look out!

    Is It the Truth that a KSR listener and his family drove to listen to the “Truth” speak at a Church only to find out it was all a LIE? Was there ever an explanation?

    aspartame is extremly bad for you.way worse than refined sugar
    google it and see many reputable studies.
    if you are diabetic stay away from any diet drink with aspartame.
    of course you can believe what you want.

    A Thistle is a weed that is indigineous to Kentucky that have roots that go to China, they have a blue flower on them and have plenty of thorns so they cannot be pulled up they must be dug, to “grub” them means to clean them out by digging them up and that’s a tough job, a very tough job.

    Harry is talking about the Canadian Thistles that grow along the interstates and farmlands. They are the prickly green plants with those purple flower heads on them. When they die they “spore” out and you’ll have even more of them next year. You have to grub hoe them out of the ground, cut the flower heads off and burn them to get rid of them. I speak from experience of having to do this on our farm for 3 years in a row to get rid of the things. I HATE seeing them along the interstate and have an uncontrollable urge to at least cut those flowers off before they can spore.

    He’s not even in the top 3 in his own conference the Big 10.

    I would say:

    1. Tom Izzo
    2. Thad Matta
    3. Matt Painter
    4. John Beilein
    5. I would say it’s a tie between Bo Ryan/Tom Crean

    149 — Didn’t say he was Top Ten. I just said he’s better than Crean. He is damn close to the Top 10 though. He’s a great coach shown by the fact that he took George Mason to a Final 4 and has taken Miami (in his second year) to an ACC regular season and tournament championship

    College coaches will tell you how good Larranaga, Brad Stevens, and Shaka Smart are. You don’t get programs like George Mason, VCU, and Butler to a Final 4. You just don’t do it.



  163. Delk for 3

    In my opinion, Larranaga will get to a Final 4 very soon at Miami.



  164. MarkyMark

    Matt Painter has had a longer period of success in the Big 10. Purdue wasn’t much when he came in and he turned it around to a respectable program. If a few injuries didn’t happen to them (Robbie Hummel) they probably would have been a Final Four Team. Under Painter they had 6 consecutive 22+ win seasons and have more draft picks than Crean has had at Indiana.
