Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Whoops.

Murray State defeated No. 20 Memphis 76-72 in FedEx Forum last night, but that’s not the story out of the city of BBQ and Three 6 Mafia that is making national headlines today. During the player introductions, Memphis PA announcer Chuck Roberts must’ve thought it was 2008 while introducing the Tigers’ head coach to the packed FedEx Forum crowd.

“…and the head coach of the Memphis Tigers… JOHN CALIPARI!!!”

The crowd erupted with boos after the slip-up. Roberts corrected himself seconds later but the damage was done.

See for yourself…

    It was hilarious, I was there…After Murray won I thought, somehow this loss will somehow be Calapari’s fault!

    Every PA announcers dream is to introduce John Calipari as the Head Coach of their respective team…..even his past ones!

    Memphis is HORRIBLE!! Pastner has easily the “most talented team” of every game they have played this year, but cant win. Recruiting top talent and getting them to success is as easy as it looks, huh Josh??

    I’ve done something similar. I dj’ed in the local strip clubs for a long time. After leaving one of the best jobs for another I, on the mic, called two by club one’s name. Not once but twice. Why did this happen? Because deep down I wanted to return to club one. I’ve also many many times called the strippers by the wrong name but that doesn’t matter because well… Strippers aren’t really people, are they?

    As an MSU grad working in SW TN, I’ve had a BIG time today! And the standard comeback is “What happened to KY?” and my answer is “What happened to UT?”

    Ashamed to say I watched Nickelback a couple of years ago in Rupp. Singer gets on the mic and screams , “How we doin’ Louisville!!” He got booed pretty bad. That’s the immediate moment that they started suckin majorly.
