FROM MATT: To kick off #LouisvilleHateDay, we will go back in times to the post that started in all. In 2007, Louisville fans were a lot like they are now…their chests were puffed out and they believed they were relevant nationally in football. Then along came a beatdown in Commonwealth that hopefully is like what…

As it’s been ubiquitously illustrated on this blog, we know people. One of our favorites, the boisterous yet exceedingly insightful Dickie-V, was kind enough to recently sit down with me for a little ‘QnA’. This isn’t Vitale’s first visit with KSR, oh no. But after this one, we may just stick to the Doyel’s and…

Continuing with my search for other voices on the blog, this piece is from the pen of reader “The Teller.” Enjoy. A lifetime Investment by: The Teller It’s safe to assume that most of you KSR listeners/bloggers from the Eastern Coal fields all the way west to the Jackson Purchase are bluegrass-bred, derby pie-eatin’, bourbon…

Walking towards Neyland Stadium on a blissful late-autumn morning yesterday, a man standing by his orange and white checkered pickup, decked out it overalls offered my friend and I a cherry from his jar of moonshine. “Cats fans! Eat one of these bad boys.” The hillbilly said, offering up the cherry bomb with his calloused…

originally published 11/22/2006 (to a tepid response) An especially brilliant Friday it was, the first of May, 2006. Spared from Mother Nature’s menopausal springtime whim, at least for a day. I, along with a collection of peers from the school of strong ambitions and broken morals, descended upon Churchill Downs for a date with the…

Perhaps nobody is as anxious for the 9:00 tip-off than the highly underrated DePaul alum, John C. Reilly. After dutifly disposing of Miami and MSVst., tonight Kentucky gets an early taste of tournament time to go along with their kona pork. While this is by no means a season “make-or-breaker”, a good showing in Maui…

The 2006 Maui Invitational is already underway, so what better time to preview it, right? For a PDF bracket, click here. Oklahoma–If this Oklahoma team plays anything like their virgin head Coach Jeff Capel, they will be whiny, and underachieving.

Archer might want to re-think this whole ‘matador inspired scheme’. On this afternoon of repentence, cupon clipping, and general lethargy, here’s a quote from ‘defense extraordinaire’ Mike Archer. I guess laughter is indeed the best medicine for those 500 yard blues. “My expectations were totally different because we played so many of those freshmen last…

If there were a basketball equivalent to “three yards and a cloud of dust,” then it was on display last night is Rupp. As I uncomfortably shifted in my cramped seat, beside the worse case of thunder-thighs since Serena Williams got off the juice, I struggled to find an ounce of optimism in Kentucky’s yawn…

Let me just say this, I fully intend to bask in this bowl-eligible-with-two-games-left thing for as long as she’s got legs. I’ve even begun to talk like an SEC elitist, you know, the way UT, UGA, and LSU fans do when they’re no longer in BCS contention: “Well at least we managed to beat Vandy,…
