      He probably knows he won’t have too many chances to celebrate wins this year. Loserville fans say we treat our game with them like the super bowl. I’ve never celebrated that much beating them. LOL

      Coach Pitino told him two hours before the game that if the team loses again, he loses his job. No wonder he was so excited.

    Drew Franklin,
    The first few times I saw you, I legit thought you had Down syndrome. You have itty bitty eyes, a cheesy as hell fake forced smile, and you are like middle age and always try to date/hang out with teenagers. A pedophile with Down syndrome that jones just employed out of kindness is what I took you for for 4 months…. 4 months, drew…
    This strength coach looks like he has some kind of mental thing. I’ve seen video of him before, and something isn’t right with him. I dislike UL, but I draw the line at poking fun of somebody with some kind of problem. I worked with autistic children for years. Drew, you should be ashamed for starting the jabs, and everyone that commented about him should also feel pitiful.

    • Dennis
      1:14 am August 15, 2015 Permalink

      WTF dude??? Drew Franklin is one of the funniest guys around. Why would you say something like that? I guess you have some manly issues you need to work through. I seriously doubt their strength coach has ” a mental kind of thing.” Maybe you should be ashamed.

    • Landazan
      1:16 am August 15, 2015 Permalink

      Lol. I don’t care who you are, that’s funny… Sorry drew. I do feel bad for laughing though, if something is wrong with him. Those things are rough for families to deal with.

    • Matt Dillard
      1:20 am August 15, 2015 Permalink

      Dennis, or should I say drew, I was just making a point that it can happen to anybody and some people have tougher issues than others. I was just saying that I thought you had problems for a long time from working with children who deal with those things. It was an honest mistake but the point is you can’t always judge people until you know them.
      Also, I know you are funny drew. Don’t have to tell people, it’s not very becoming of you.

    • Samantha Reynolds
      1:24 am August 15, 2015 Permalink

      Omg, I’m glad I finally heard someone else say this. My friends and I used to think drew had some issue but didn’t want to say anything to be rude. Just glad I wasn’t alone in this. He is kind of a funny guy though. And yes drew, I am a young lady. And no drew, I won’t hang out with you. Lol

      I must say that I agree that there may be something wrong with this guy other than him being a Louisville fan. I’ve seen video of him before as well and he seems to do this on every play of every game not just game winning shots as the video would indicate. He probably does that during practice too. If you watch his body you can see little ticks so I would believe that he does suffer from something just not sure what

      Matt dillird , your comment is not flattering toward disabled people. For some reason you don’t work with autistic children anymore. I’m going to assume it’s because you couldn’t handle the challenges that they experience on a daily basis. To say something is not “right” with him cause he is disabled needs to get you an ass beatin. you sir are not “right” and thank god you don’t work with those blessed souls anymore

      Typical assBackwards holier than thou liberal BS. Taking someone’s words and spinning them in a way to make yourself look like a whit knight. Why don’t you do us all a favor and just STFU with your liberal pansyass nonsense.
      What I said was accurate and I don’t have to conform my words to your PC liking you Nimbwit.
      For the record. I am 6’6, 240, and haven’t missed a day of weight training since high school. If I were you, I’d be a little more careful with who you threaten with an “ass beatin”.

    I just KNEW I shoulda retired after last season. All my best players from the last few years are either learning a new language and culture overseas…or hitting a bong all day long…Cal coached the Dominican team and reaped some positives out of it…namely KAT…so as to not be outdone by Cal…I agreed to do this Puerto Rico gig…I shoulda scouted the so-called “team” first…my squad was the worst so-called “team” in the Pan-Am games…so to make the best of a bad and embarrassing situation…which hey…I am used to bad and embarrassing situations…I failed to cross mid-court at Porcini’s within ten seconds…but to be fair…her “female parts” was similar to trying to thrust a Louisville Slugger into the Bowling Green/Corvette sinkhole…it was just soaking wet and deep and- to be honest- it had been awhile…ya feel me? Hey…don’t dare judge me…35 plus years of Joanne? Exactly. Don’t judge. But here I was stuck with this lame as so-called “team” from Puerto Rico…I wanted to wear a paper sack over my head during every game…so yeah…I was quite certain that my U of L squad would beat these clowns…and now THIS? They beat us and beat us and beat us? Beat us by 34 points even? Just how BAD is my team going to be this year? But we pulled out the victory against a lame as hell team tonight and our strength coach notched a record 3-and-a-half inch vertical leap at the buzzer…which…hey…that is about the size of my manhood when I get excited…so hey…but daggone it…I was once King of Kentucky…and now Cal is King…and he grinds me into the dirt with his heel every chance he gets…I was unaware that Louisville was second-class citizen status when I took the job…but I tasted greatness as the King of Kentucky for 8 all-too-brief seasons…and I should have known better…but after my utter failure in Boston…I thought my next job would be following the elephants in the Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus with a giant pooper scooper and a shovel in hand…so…when Louisville came a calling? I just knew it was the next best thing I could get…so I took it…ya know? And after I had my potentially career ending incident with that Karen Siphon chick…har har…Tom Jewrich stood by me…and even re-hired Bobby “Harley-Davidson” Petrino…just to take th heat off of me…and so now…all was supposed to be cool again…but here I am…and I have to take this pathetic squad into Rupp against Cal and his newest squad of future NBA ballers? Perhaps I should feign an illness to get out of it? You know…just like Coach K did that one year when he knew Duke was really going to suck bad…and so he took a year off because of his “back”…he did not want all of those loses on HIS record…and neither do I…I think I feel somethin’ comin’ on…a may need to take a medical leave this season…and to be real? After watching my team against this lousy Puerto Rico squad? I am about as sick to my gut as I have ever felt in my life…so it is really not faking it then, right? Oh help me…

Their thoughtful research, intellectual comments and fact based writing skills let me know that this website is fair and balanced.

    • Ha!
      11:57 am August 15, 2015 Permalink

      Oh yeah, its a wonderful world of politeness and intellect over on the Card boards (if you can look past the never ending racial profiling/insults, fantasy land delusion [“little brother, who is now bigger, stronger, and faster” LOL] and unbelievable grammatical errors that plague nearly every post that mentions the Cats). I counted once, last year, how many topics involved UK, during the height of basketball season, and 86% WERE ABOUT UK. lol

      Some examples:

      “Cal is scum. Lexingtown University is scum. Every fan of that program is scum. The Program is poison to college basketball.”

      “Let them and their ill-gotten gains rot in hell.”

      “Those players, that coach, and ESPECIALLY those fans don’t deserve anything other than the NCAA death penalty.”

      “Hawkins and Willis are only on the team because they are UK fans. Born and inbred.”

      “You can just tell by looking at the type of players Cow recruits that they have this “aura of shadiness”

      “most uk fans do not understand what Algebra is. Most are trying to figure why the girl would where her bra in the infested waters.”

      “Oh well not gonna have a good team every year. We’re getting spoiled like Klantucky fans.”

      “Calipari’s suite cost more than half the populations current trailer house.”

      “the typical UK fan has low self esteem, a low I.Q. and a low income.”

      “I have never in all my living life understood how a black man could be a fan of that school.”

      “the UK fan base is more of a reflection of the state of Kentucky than the university… poor, odd culture, and uneducated.”

      “It’ll be like last season when you pussies lost to UConn, UofL fans are still laughing about that !!!!”

      “Pitino has had a better past 6 years than Calipari because he didn’t go to the NIT.” — UofL superfan and psychopath “zipp”

      “UK hangs it hat on basketball…we excel in other sports.” — UofL, which has finished behind UK in 18 of the last 22 Directors’ Cups

      “UK will go down a year or two after Cal leaves. Somebody will grow a conscious or blow there portion and be refused more.”

      “If WVU wins tonight we had a better season than UK”

      “They know they’re cheating and could care less. They have no shame about whether it’s legitimate, they just want bragging rights.”

    Good question eh?
