Who said we don’t have enough UK volleyball coverage?


Per your request, we sent Adam Schilt to Memorial Coliseum to cover the UK volleyball game against Louisville. I won’t spoil the outcome, but Louisville wasn’t “first”.


Beat Louisville Month Starts With Sweep of Cards
Adam Schilt, KSR Student Intern

I know that many of you come to the site disappointed every day that there isn’t enough volleyball coverage. Worry no more. We’ve heard your desperate pleas and loud complaints for more from the Big Blue Blockers, and I’m just the one for the job.

In all seriousness, folks, if you weren’t in Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday night, you missed 1/3 of what it means to be a UK fan in September. Your volleyball Cats took down rival Louisville (yeah, the one that sucks), 3-0 (25-22, 26-24, 25-11) and gave UK the edge in the head-to-head battle with the Dirty Cards this month. The Cats started the game hot and ended it even hotter (with the volleyball, of course…the overall attractiveness of the team stayed about the same), taking complete control of the third and final set out of the locker room and never really giving Louisville a chance to get momentum.

Here are some notes from the game:

–First of all, if there are any Louisville fans reading this, 1) You suck and 2) Could you please tell your team to be more careful during pregame warm-ups? A practice spike found its way into my lap and almost crushed my iPhone. I need that to tweet about how much I hate you next week. Thanks.

Ann Armes is a beast. I mention this mainly because she wears #9, the same as a certain Golden-Toe on the football Cats. Armes is to hands as Tydlacka is to feet, and both could end up leading a team that defeats the Cardinals 3-0 if the offense plays as they did last week and Travathan and Guy the defense holds.

–If you don’t make a habit of going to the “little sports,” I might have an entertaining incentive for you. Our student section is pretty sharp, and has figured out how to find opponents’ rosters and infiltrate the players’ Facebook and Twitter pages. Yeah, creepy, I know, but definitely both funny and effective. I can tell you more about the Louisville team’s favorite foods, movies, and songs than I care to admit, and I swear a Louisville player flinched when students discovered that she likes her sandwiches cut into triangles.

— Here’s to the UK punt return team learning how to block like Skinner’s squad.

— Finally, Afro/Front Row Guy is back. That’s all I need to say about that.

We’ll do it all over again against the hated Cards Friday night at the UK soccer complex, where the undefeated women’s team will try to win 3-0, as well. See you there. Don’t be 1/3 a UK fan.
Go Cats.

    Hahahaha in regards to Afro/Front Row guy, I just always called him Fat Man Scoop…and his counterpart Zac Brown, from the Zac Brown Band.

    Went to the game last night… Also of note is #11, (don’t know her first name) Klefot. She’s a total beast digging the ball, plays with a TON of energy, and is pretty hot to boot. Very fun team to watch, and they’re damn good.
