    FYI every podcast has included commercials or was cut short since Matt was gone. Strange since I’m pretty sure he has nothing to do with them. When the host is away the kids will play.

    Scooby is not a proper or kid-friendly media partner. Everyone knows him and Shaggy were high all the time…..they rode around on Saturday mornings together in a van with flowers on the side, going crazy after eating scooby “snacks”, and searching for a haunted house.

    Matt, what is so out of line about an 8-point spread. We are UK. This is a rivalry game.

    Ul sucks, but rivalry spreads are always a tough pick.



  32. Dustinuk
    10:33 am July 26, 2011 Permalink

    I keep seeing people, mj included, saying the one will move4-5 pts. That’s not going to happen unless UK loses one to one of the scrubs before UL. 4-5 pts is a huge move, even more so when you fly past -7.

    I have never watched the first episode of Entourage. Tried once. Got about 5 minutes in. Turned it off. The d-bag meter was off the charts.

    Seems like the perfect show for those longing and dreaming for some sort of meaningful life.

    Average margin of victory UK over UL last 4 years = 10.5 points



  55. Dustinuk
    11:00 am July 26, 2011 Permalink

    That teaser idea is the worst ever. If you think the lines gonna move anyway just take UL and hope to middle UK at -6.5-7 for free. Sans a UK loss before the UL game this line will not move last UK -6.5, which would be a big move.



  56. MemphisCat
    11:01 am July 26, 2011 Permalink

    The Truth is like most of the people here in Memphis, especially when I talk about Cal and UK basketball, they say they are glad he is gone and ramble on about the good times he was here! They have Cal penis envy!

  58. the anti-cat
    11:06 am July 26, 2011 Permalink

    54 – that is correct, but the line is slightly skewed by the victory in ’08 which was a close game until UL imploded in the 4th quarter.
