What will Drew Barker do? (Friday Show Thread)

Barker

We are approximately five and a half hours from Drew Barker’s college announcement, which means we’ve got five and a half hours of speculating to do. Let’s start on this edition of Kentucky Sports Radio. To help everyone get in the “Drew” mood, our very own Drew Franklin is in studio to talk about the Conner QB, and will be on site when he announces his decision this afternoon.

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

Topics include:

— Drew Barker

    I think we should all get behind Orb winning the Triple Crown. There’s only been one time UK or UL won the title and the coach didn’t win the Kentucky Sportsman of the Year award…and that was last year with Anthony Davis. Louisville didn’t have an Anthony Davis, which means right now Rick Pitino is a lock for the Kentucky Sportsman of the Year Award…unless Orb wins the Triple Crown! Not only would Pitino lose, but he would lose to a horse! How awesome would that be? And when they announce the winner (I think in early Feburary or so), UK could be something like 20-0!

    Happy Friday! I really think Barker will come to UK. Why not? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also KSR thread posters beware! Some Louisville fan by the name of Saul S who as nothing else better to do than to hate everything KSR, checks for accurate grammar, and complains about life all together. What a dunderhead. Maybe one day there will be a LSR for you to hate on.

    So Uncle Matt, what are you doing for your mother this weekend? I don’t recommend Applebee’s.

    How about getting into the mode of the current 105 football players that are working their tails off on their own until they return in June. Beyond crazy. Ask your listeners how many have seen Barker play live or even seen films. Couch potatoes for everyone.

    Are any of the current UK QBs telling him to come be a hero? I think not. I see this 3:30 announcement as a motiviational tool for the current QBs.

    I may be very far behind in this, but I didn’t know KSR was on 630 in LEX until I saw the affiliates list a few days ago. I had always just clicked on the hyper link on KSR. It is SO MUCH better to not have to hear loserville based commercials. And best of all NO tony vanetii commercials ( knock on wood)

    I love when the show gets started and Matt’s excited he swallow and gulps a lot during his sentences. Doesn’t bother me and I don’t notice it on the radio. But when I listen on iheart with headphones it really comes through. Makes me laugh.

    The twitter unfollows actually worry me.

    I hate to say it, but the unfollowing of KSR on twitter seems to be the biggest clue that Barker will pick South Carolina.

    Remember his best friend and fellow Conner mate is walking on at UK this fall. Probably doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things, but it doesn’t hurt the cause.

    I like Justin Rowland’s take:

    He has not notified either coaching staff prior to his announcement, which is not usually the case.

    REason he wouldnt tell UK- wants to be a surprise- plain and simple- wants to build anticipation

    Reasons he wouldnt tell USCjr – Knows they are still good, their QB will be a senior and they dont really NEED a QB.

    Matt, I think you need to stop reading so much into the fact that Barker invited the public. He’s grown up with the public following him and supporting him. Maybe he’s inviting everyone hoping that they will continue to show up and support him. He might just want to share his big moment with all the people that have been there through his career thus far.

    #30 (Dud Wash) Heard on the local news this morning that the woman who gave Noah the bird was a suspect in her husband’s death awhile back. Apparently he asked for a divorce and turned up dead in the swimming pool. She was never formally charged, but did loose a civil suit to his family. BTW, there was a load of money involved. Personally, I believe she dd it.

    Ms Tobias address is 188 BEAR’S CLUB DR JUPITER FL 33477. Tax value 5 million.

  85. 66, Clinton had NOTHING to do with that roaring economy. It was the tech boom and the fact that for once federal spending had been reigned in despite him. He only signed on to some of that because the Dems got their rear ends kicked in the 94 election and he wanted to get reelected.

    Why is there not more mention that at FSU and at Kansas, there just wonโ€™t be enough talent around Wiggins to keep him from getting double or even triple-teamed. Everybody knows how good he is and teams will key in on him at those schools. He WILL be expected to be a superstar at those schools, so that is added pressure to score against multiple defenders. If he comes to KY, teams CANNOT double-team Wiggins. Who are you going to leave open in order to double up on Wiggins? Randle? WCS? I donโ€™t think so! If Wiggins wants the least pressure on him to perform, wants to win a national title, and wants to be a top 3 pick in the draft, then the obvious choice is UK. Come on down Wiggy!

    Decent comparisons, I’m not sure about the Brandon Roy/Andrew Harrison comparison. B.Roy was always a true 2 guard. D. Williams though is a good comparison. I see a lot of Chancey Billups leadership in Andrew Harrison. The Wiggs/T-Mac is pretty spot on, but he has a chance to be even better then McGrady was. Darkari/Monroe is a decent comparison, I just think Dakari has better hands but not as good as a post-passer as Monroe. And Barkley was 6’4′. Not too bad though, almost as good as mine.

    248 ) With Barkley I am more referring to the attitude…the “aint no one gettin in my way”
