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

You Mad, Bro? Harrison Twins Edition

  

 

Here at Kentucky Sports Radio, we specialize in 2 things: Loving Kentucky sports, and making fun of people who have made the unfortunate life choice of not loving Kentucky sports. When Andrew and Aaron Harrison solidified themselves as lottery picks in the 2014 NBA Draft on Thursday, not only was it a cause for celebration for the Big Blue Nation, but it put the rest of the nation on Defcon 5 “Troll Alert”. See, for those who hate the University of Kentucky and it’s continued success (on the basketball court at least), the only thing that wets their willies more than talking about their respective teams, is throwing dirt on any accomplishment Kentucky achieves. To the rest of the collegiate world, Kentucky is Darth Vader, or Shooter McGavin with 8 gold jackets. 

In our never-ending quest to prove just how salty the rest of the nation is about Kentucky’s success, I took to the internet to find the most bitter fans the internet could offer, and let me tell you, it looks like the bitterness has reached a post-tequila shot level. I wonder what Indiana fans have to say about it?

3 players on KY roster from KY. 10 players on Indiana’s roster from Indiana. The best athletes money can buy vs local homegrown talent. The only thing Kentucky about their team is the name.

Good job on those facts wiklecr, you are in fact, correct. However, there is more to Kentucky than just our name. In fact, last year’s team continued Kentucky’s long-standing tradition at being better than Indiana. Sure, you built a trophy case to commemorate your regular-season victory over the ‘Cats, but Kentucky did you one better by throttling the Hoosiers on the road to adding another trophy to their trophy case that actually matters.

All you can do now is hope Cal gets caught dropping the $$ and gets his due and they suffer a ban on their freshman season.  Should have gone with the guy who has been pushing for them for 6 years

With this kind of support for the continuation of their careers, it’s amazing that the Harrison twins aren’t on their way to College Park, MD.

Hard to compete with that kind of money.

$65,000,000 in NBA salaries this season is a very nice post-scholastic prize for former Kentucky basketball players, how’s Juan Dixon doing? You’re gonna need international minutes on your cell phone plan to find out.

 

The “Saltiest Of Them All” Award shockingly goes to a Syracuse fan named “Jonvi” over on the CBS Sports message boards however, check out some of his most butthurt posts of the week:

I need to remind all my UK brothers….These chumps are from Texas. They are playing in a d league. Wait till they go up against a guard from Philly, Memphis, NJ, Chicago. Wait until they hit a real front line. They had no business crossing the Mississippi.  They will have their lunch money stolen and their girl won’t get back on the bus to go home. Staying wid men….that’s what we doin…uh hmmmmm.  Snap!

UK will need combat medics and a team of psychologists to put em back together.  And that’s just the ride from the hotel to the game.  They’ll get mugged again on the court.

They don’t teach that in Texas.

And there’s this classic:

So UK gets the tweens and now are the number one team in the nation 2013/2014 season.

aaaaaaaahhahhaahahahahahahahahahaha

hhaha….Cal fell for a suckers bet.

Wait till them punks goes up against some east coast guns.  They will be at uk 3 years.

That’s just too easy, have fun going to 4 Final Fours every 40 years, call Indiana if you need help building some imaginary trophy cases. Unfortunately Carmelo Anthony has used up his eligibility, so the ‘Cuse’s championship hopes look dim for the rest of existence.

 

But it just wouldn’t be right of me to only show the dark side of the internet though, so this is why I have instituted Maryland fan “Midgetman15” as Big Blue Nation’s “Friend of the Program” for the time being, way to take this inevitable defeat like a champ:

hey KY fans dont let haters put you guys down..as a MD fan I would love to had have the TWINS come to MD but they wanted KY more. at MD Turge is turning this program around slowly but surely and having the TWINS would have been nice but you know what at end of day KY is were they wanted to be..and I figure sooner or later law of averages will allow another top recruit to pick MD over KY and all other programs you know..so good luck to you guys and see you at Barclays in New Jersey…A dissapointed but true MD fan….

    Some Maryland fan blew up Andrew Harrison’s twitter this morning. I would post his account but he’s locked it to people who don’t follow him. Both Harrison and Wildcat Corey retweeted several though.

    i wonder what guy porsche911twerp is referring to: “should have gone with the guy who’s been pushing for them for 6 years”.

    Yes, the discussions (read: wailing, gnashing of teeth, foul curses, head-spinnin’–you name it) on CBS and ESPN have looked like the Seventh Level of Hell. I’m guessin’ when Randle, Wiggins and Young commit to UK, Hell will have to add a couple of more levels.

    i posted this after the twins committed, but I feel its worth posting again. i know the word “delusional” gets thrown around a lot, but Tard fans take the damn cake:

    one of my favorites: “I’ll take the two guards we have locked away (Gill & Rozier) UK can have the twins….we are never going away regardless of who they sign.”

    I saw the comment dude made about Indiana talent. You should have put the response someone put up after about Teague leavin the state to come to KY. Put the dude in his place.

    Geez, hope the twins stay at Kentucky for 3 years. We could be going for #12 by then.

    Go Cats! but i hate when you post this kind of topic because we know if they picked UM a lot of the bad fans would have said just as much if not more bad things about and to the twins.

    I’m kind of shocked that we didn’t get representation from our feathered friends in “da ville”. Had one of my ville fan coworkers going off about Cal’s supposedly “underhanded” methods of luring recruits. I shut him up with two words: “Shabaka Lands”.

    Umm, Barclay Center is in Brooklyn, not New Jersey. But thanks for coming out to play.

    KSR is worse than Fox News. It broadcasts biased B.S. to a toothless, and illiterate fan base. #YouareUK

    It actually all makes sense. These fans talking trash must come from a time back before AAU teams and all star games existed. In that time, highly-touted players from out west may not have played against the obviously better ballers in the east. Further, these time travelers have no idea that everyone bashing our youth the last 3 years was proven wrong time and time again. They come from a time long ago when freshmen couldn’t even play and everyone played at least 3-4 years, hence their prediction the twins will be here 3 years.

    Poor time travelers. Give them a break. They’re going to want to kill themselves anyway when they learn about Justin Beiber.

    Hey, Guys, the Jonvi quote from CBS is out of context. The guy is one of the most reasonable posters on the site, never fails to give UK its due, and is a favorite of a lot of us UK fans over there. He was just playing around with his Kentucky friends. So go easy on him. For a Cuse fan, he’s a good guy.

    15. – Is right. Jonvi is a good guy and usually shows UK (and even Cal) a lot of love. He was just trying to stir up a little trouble and bust some balls during the off season doldrums. In his defense, on CBS the best way to get people talking is to say something bad about UK.

    #12) You may want to rethink your criticism of UK fans. “KSR…broadcasts to a…illiterate fan base”. Hmm? How do these supposed illiterate people READ blogs?

    Please try to be more creative in the future!

    The final score may say we beat IU by 12 in March but I don’t know that we throttled them. I was there and that was a close, great game.

    I’m shocked!!!! You guys realy believe Texas has bball players? lol….I ain’t gonna bust balls on a UK page. Very cool I got the blue blood pumping this week. We are all a month away from tip off and I can’t wait. Good Luck luck with the bball season and with all UK sports.

    It seems Will Totten simply did not do his homework and/or doesn’t understand sarcassim. JonV is a true college hoops lover who loves a good laughs and said many nice things regarding the Cat success. He reached out to the many Kentucky followers. Why didn’t Will put in a few of those. “Common Will; get it together”…do your research properly.
