    I don’t understand Drew’s rant. The players are going to be allowed to make money from their likeness, right? I’m outraged by the fake outrage.

      There is nothing more annoying than fake outrage, and his post was chock-full with fallacious arguments.

      I think the fact the conferences have been lobbying against that (if I understand that story I didn’t actually read), when it isn’t even going to cost schools money, made him go off. That and just the many years of hypocrisy about this topic.

    • JTHinton

      Don’t get me wrong — the NCAA has completely whiffed on this issue.

      Two things can be true at once: the players deserve to own their NIL, and they actually benefit from playing in college more than the average fan might think.

      For example, there’s no way Zion signs that $75 Million shoe deal if he doesn’t play at Duke.

      I took it that the basketball and football players returning to campus first was the tipping point, at least in the KSR article yesterday. Today I don’t even know what he and Ryan are blabbering about. I just want my college sports back.

      However, if y’all want to talk about fake outrage, Matt is already on like his 9th rant this morning. Someone take away his caffeine.

    • ClutchCargo
      10:27 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      I feel like we’re expected to hate college sports and be ashamed of being fans. Matt is the king of fake outrage, so I’m kind of used to that.

    • ClutchCargo

      Totally agree, JTHinton.

      Yes, the return to campus was what the article was about, the other was what I imagine was the context. And I agree with you guys position wise, but I do think there has been a lot of hypocrisy about things like this from the NCAA deserving of outrage, but at least they are in the process of changing.

    TGIF. What a long hard work week. Just kidding. Glad some of you have a three day weekend coming.

    Wow. Did you all see Joe Biden’s comments from this morning …

      No I’m scared to ask. Was it about how we should bring back creepy old men touching women too much?

      Nothing like an old white guy telling black people how to think about politics.

      His exact quote, talking about black voters:

      “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

      It’s just sad that these are the two choices we have for November. Grumpy, creepy old man, or grumpier old man with the mentality of a four year old. JT, I have two daughters in your age group, and sadly, it may be up to their generation to clean up some of this mess. The two party system is a farce.

      Noooo, I shave; I don’t want to look OLD.

      Mrs RCF thinks I should shave the goatee because it’s completely white, and my hair on my head has very little grey in it. She says it makes me look old. Younger daughter is against that – she has seen pictures of me without the beard and she thinks I look weird. Can’t win. 🙂

    Wasn’t there some supposed alien thing that happened in Christian County? Maybe they will get to that.

    • runningunnin.454
      11:02 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      Matt doesn’t believe in ghosts; so, I’m sure he doesn’t believe in little green men. No better candidate for an alien abduction and analprobe. And, no one would believe him, ha ha ha.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:15 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      Matt would be a funny candidate for the Alien abduction / probe. Mitch would be even funnier, and Trump would be the funniest.

      Biden would try to probe them back. Pelosi would scare them back to their planet.

      They would probably give Ryan back.

    • ClutchCargo
      11:17 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      The anal probe thing and Matt’s loud screeching would be the thing that got the aliens caught, though. lol

      Clutch, do you think the nose whistle might be what summoned them in the first place?

      Could be, RCF. I imagine dogs are really drawn to Matt as well.

    Whether the cheerleader stuff was “forced” or not has nothing to do with it, and I can’t believe the guys don’t understand that. It’s whether UK wants to risk being sued for having a hostile environment that they did nothing to correct, that’s the issue.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:20 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      You could make the argument that they could have handled it internally and not so severely with warnings, suspensions, etc., but UK is under such a microscope with the NCAA and the public at large that they can’t risk putting forth the image that they don’t take stuff like this seriously. University-6 down the road is a perfect example of what can happen when you neglect to “tend to your garden”.

    • ClutchCargo
      11:22 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      It does seem harsh, I agree. But the word “forced” being thrown shows a lack of understanding the whole point of why UK did anything at all.

    • Realme
      11:27 am May 22, 2020 Permalink

      The cheerleaders speaking out against the firings are certainly convincing, but we haven’t heard from the other side directly, so I really don’t know what to think.

    Seriously? Shannon has worked in rock radio for how many years? Can’t believe he only know ONE Grateful Dead song. I guess I’m old.

    Edgar Cayce was called the “sleeping prophet”. He predicted that Kentucky will be under water after a cataclysmic earthquake in the future.

    Speaking of probes – went in for the COVID test this morning, and daayyummm – I thought that swab was going to come out my ear. My eyes were watering for about ten minutes afterwards. There is no way 45 is being tested every day – he wouldn’t stand for it.

    We ship a lot of smaller packages as part of our business, and the industry we are in is so competitive that everyone offers free shipping. If Trump axes the post office, it will absolutely kill us as far as shipping is concerned. UPS and FedEx are ridiculous – they absolutely gouge us. USPS is the ONLY reasonable way of sending smaller items, and they are usually AT LEAST as dependable as the others.
