    Tuned into the Cubs game last night to see them raise the World Series banner.
    The TV announcer, a baseball guy, said everybody in Wrigley had their blue on, and
    “it looked like the Kentucky Wildcats when they go on the road”. Ha Ha.

    Can’t believe your having Smooth on today.

      So cool that such a New Yorker at heart wants to give back to Ky like he is. I hope he and Briscoe overlap. I could see them getting along well.

    Zay was instrumental to our teams’ success this season especially due to his leadership and defensive toughness. Not to mention his fearless slashing ability. There were several games he helped win for us driving for buckets late in games when other teams could not stop him. The Vandy game comes to mind.

      I don’t know if he’ll be drafted, but I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t earn a spot on a team, for the reasons you described.

      The ‘bama game down there as well

      If toughness has anything to do with it he will make a team.

      Toughness, heart, determination, and hard work. These are things Briscoe has in spades.

      A really good player with effort and hustle second to none. He has a couple very visible flaws that were unfortunately magnified by a few ignorant “fans” and less-than-knowledgeable sports casters.
      I wish him luck in his future. He will have success somewhere. Selfishly, for the team I wish he would return but I don’t think he helps HIS future by returning.

      His shooting improved a lot from first to second year. I would think that would be a mark in his favor. He’s shown he’ll put in the work and that he can get better. There is demonstrable proof that Briscoe improved.

    I don’t see airport cops having the nerve to manhandle someone Briscoe’s size.

      Can you imagine the death threats they’d receive if they dared? It would make the Higgins death threats look like child’s play.

      And it would somehow be Matt’s fault. 🙂

    I liked Briscoe before. He is only increasing my perception of him with this interview.

      I am often amazed by the poise and general niceness of our players. Reporters ask them some snarky nasty questions designed to provoke a reaction and they handle those questions way better than I would. Remember last year when Tipton asked Briscoe the “lesser light in the backcourt” question? Zay turned lemons into lemonade. I would have told Tipton to go eff himself.



    • CATandMONKEY

      I believe that response is appropriate for any Tipton question; even “Excuse me, what time is it?”

    Can’t listen to the radio. If Bradley says what he is doing now someone post it please.

      He won’t be on until the second hour, but I think he’s playing professionally in Israel.

      He said he decided not to play overseas this year and is thinking over what to do next. And is considering moving to Ky. And the App Harvest stuff is coming up next.

    If you have the passion and drive, every other tool can be coached and improvement can be made in athletics. Briscoe has both. Best of luck to him.

    Briscoe’s voice has a hint of Mike Tyson in it.

      Ha, he’s like Tyson in more ways than just his voice…..Bulldog.

    Ha ha ha ha ha!! On playing on the road: “I just like ruining the other team’s day.” – Isaiah Briscoe.

    Derek making eye contact with Briscoe and then perfectly missing that free throw so Briscoe could get that rebound is one of my favorite moments of the season.

    If Matt’s really never heard any player have a good interview before they get to KSR, he’s not watching locker room, preseason or This Is Ky BB interviews. He always sounds so shocked they can talk.

    This kid Porter recruiting other players to Missouri is starting to annoy me. Oh, Daddy got a job, so I’ll go there; after committing to Washington after Daddy got a job there. Enough is enough.
    I don’t care how the NCAA looks at it, it’s paying recruits.
    It’s worse than anything they’ve ever cited anybody for….except may the hooker thing.

    United stock down 4%.

    His history despite its colorful character is irrelevant. His wife is great. I felt sorry for her during the “dark times.” Have worked peripherally with both of them.



    • J-Dub421

      Agreed, it doesn’t matter and he was treated abominably.

    It’s been some time since I really, really wanted a recruit, because generally I know Cal will put together a great team. But this Bamba stuff is killing me. He can be a megastar here.

    I get the job creation part of App Harvest, but what will they do with the end product? Sell or give to the needy?

      Presumably they will supply supermarkets and restaurants with produce. They are basically located at the place where four states meet within just a few miles, so it’s a great location for that business. They can supply businesses much faster and presumably cheaper (since it will have to be transported much less).

    Why is this idiot defending United??? They were in the wrong. This man was a paying customer who was already seated on the plane ready to take off. They wanted to remove paying customer for their own employees. Make alternate arrangements for your employees or plan ahead better. Airlines all have reciprocal agreements with other airlines and can fly their employees for free with any airline when there are seats available. Or they could have offered more money until someone volunteered to leave. There was no reason to forcibly remove that man from the plane. None.

      Everyone who defends United’s right to boot a person off of a flight are way missing the point. There were SO many better ways they could have handled it.



    • runningunnin.454

      It looked like he was knocked out, and dragged off the plane like a terrorist.
      It was all over cable news last night; they will pay one way or the other.



    • J-Dub421
      11:55 am April 11, 2017 Permalink

      I just named two other ways that could easily have been handled. It took me less than a minute to think of them. If I could come up with them easily, then so could United.

      I do not want to live in a corporate fascist police state where the police are used as outsourced mercenaries to protect corporate profits and interests at the expense of individuals and their rights. Which is what happened in this case.

    They should bring Ramel in a lot when Matt’s gone.

      Agree – seems like a great guy. Love to hear that he has a good heart and wants to give back to the community.
