Listen to today’s two-hour Final Four afternoon special


Today’s two-hour afternoon edition of KSR was a lot of fun, maybe one of the best shows we’ve ever done. Matt and Ryan kicked it off with UK’s open practice, then I jumped on from time to time to provide babysitting advice and admit I held a Kentucky legend’s thigh standing courtside. We also had several awesome guests — Kaylee Hartung, Michael Eaves, Mike Pratt, Oscar Combs and Rex Chapman — and we held the single worst trivia contest in the history of trivia contests.

If you weren’t able to tune in but would like to hear the show, we now have it up in podcast form for you late listeners.  The first hour is Kaylee, Rex, Mike and Oscar during UK’s open practice; the second hour is our terrible attempt at giving away tickets and a lot more.

We also have a podcast of Rex’s segment and I encourage everyone to listen it. He opened up about his addiction, the infamous tweet and how he is a brand new man after rehab. A lot of people will never forgive Rex — which is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion — but you have to respect him for owning up to his mistakes and coming clean. It was very difficult for him to do but he needed it. We all needed it. Give it a listen and be happy he’s turned his life around.

    I was just waiting for an apology, as I bet many in BBn were. He said his piece, and it’s forgotten, as far as I’m concerned. Welcome Back, Rex.

    Thanks for posting the King Rex interview, Drew! Glad to hear him apologize and for Matt to say he looks great. The BBN will never abandon its own…

    I respect anyone who can admit a mistake and apologize for it, and it takes a big man to apologize in such a humble way, and on the radio! From this point forward, I’m Rex fan again.

    Regarding Rex – seems humbled and broken. My prayer is that he has surrendered his life to Christ and draws on His strength each and every day. Kudos to him for the courage to talk about this publicly.
