    Valvano has spent the last 10 mins ranting about Matt being on OTL. I love it….!

    Bring up how SMU got hammered but UNC is being ignored.



    • Ha!

      At this point, I couldn’t care less about the UNC crap. I wanna see that loudmouth, too big for its britches program down the road burned to the ground.

      And revel in their tears as it’s delusional fan base watch that 2013 banner get taken down.

      All of this is karma for all their shit talking.

      I agree. I wouldn’t have taken nearly as much joy IF UL and their fans didn’t act like their program was spotless, and UK’s was a cesspool. Its always been ironic that they call UK & Cal “sleazy” when they employ, or have employed Pitino, Petrino, Hurt, etc. Just typing those names make me cringe, yet their fans act like none of that matters. Integrity of the program, indeed!

      That’s my concern. Let’s hope Matt’s distaste for all things UofL doesn’t distort his thoughts/words. I hope his giddiness doesn’t shine through.

      Matt, regardless of his distaste for all things U of L, is always very professional when he’s in the national media. Go CATS. Go Matt.

    About time that morally bankrupt athletic department gets the hammer. How many scandals can those clowns survive?

      Bankrupt? explain, please know and understand facts before speaking.

    Matt,

    Please keep in mind you are not only representing yourself, but you are speaking at that moment for the face of Cat Nation. Please DO NOT be a douche and embarrass us!

    Thank You,

    A proud Cat fan!

    Matt does not represent me. Matt is no more qualified than anyone else to speak. I don’t care what he says.

    Seems to be a lot of Louisville apologists commenting on this post. Strange…..

    I`m a UK fan, but having Matt on to talk about this makes UK look bad. I wish anyone with UK ties would just stay out if it.



    • Ha!
      1:35 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      U mad? 😉



    • Don't get involved
      1:38 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      I agree completely. Let’s let a Louisville person discuss this issue. There’s no reason to bring the name UK or anyone associated with UK into this conversation.



    • Brian
      1:40 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      All a UofL person would have talked about was how this is all somehow UK’s fault.



    • Brian

      Hey look, more UofL apologists!! LOL



    • agreed
      2:14 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      Agree also. Whose idea was it to invite Jones on OTL? I don’t get it. Seems like ESPN would be above that even if Matt isn’t



    • Booby Petrino
      2:24 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      being above that? Above talking about a rival school paying for hookers for athletes? you people need a sense of humor, you sound boring as shit.

    Matt Jones is the most childish sports person that has been on radio or TV.And for him to have the following he has in the “big bleu”nation is very telling about the IQ of the UK fanatics.I listened today just to know for sure what a low life he is.

    He ranted on about Pitino having to go because even if Pitino didn’t know about it,he is the man at the top and has to take responsibility for it as coach.This from the same person that has said again and again that Cal carried none of the blame for the seasons being pulled at Memphis and UMass.Matt is the same “UK Hero” that convicted Chris Jones when the first report came out.

    To answer your question as to why would a whore lie.Matt. it’s about money.

    I know something wrong happened but I would like find the facts before believing a whore that pimps her own underage daughters.



    • Ha!

      Your program is going down, Jim. Hahahahahahahaaaaa!

      1980 and 1986. Again.

      Low life. What talent do you have? She may be a whore but she ain’t lying.

      Am I to assume that ” ‘big bleu”nation’ ” was some attempt at an insult?

    Yeah, I am a huge UK fan and supporter. I follow this site everyday but I don’t think Matt Jones should be on Outside The Lines! He is going to make us all look bad.



    • Ha!

      ’15, huh? You just start at UK?

      No doubt. Louisville made THEMSELVES look bad. Matt is just going to be on there to discuss it. 😉

      But, why Matt Jones? Why not a UofL radio personality? Makes us look petty by having him address a UofL scandal. Anyway, why are UofL fans so surprised by this. Scandal U is in the new it seems every couple of years because someone can’t keep their **** in their pants. LOL



    • Ha!
      2:41 pm October 5, 2015 Permalink

      LOL, like who? John Ramsey?!?!

    I honestly dont see the point of having Matt on OTL. It doesnt really make sense to have a UK fan discussing UofL. I think it would be smarter to have a UL fan on to say what they think about the scandal and how it should be handled. But with that being said, good luck Matt.

    I don’t see why the BBN had to be involved in this…especially such a vocal person of the BBN. I mean, kudos to building a blog site to national prominence, but what does this have to with Kentucky Basketball? My only hopes are that Matt kept it classy and didn’t get stuck on line 5.

      You allude to part of the problem, namely that Jurich has had such a tight grip on Local media in Louisville under his “reign” there really isn’t a go to person for the local media market to even speak halfway objectively on the program besides Matt. They wanted a local media person from the city, Forde has been making rounds be he is a national guy. BTW, kudos to Pat on having the gumption to do this in spite of his friendship with Rick (NEVER thought I’d say that). There has been a ton of smoke around that program for years but I feel like I get more news on it from Lexington and KSR than people who live in the city do. It’s sad but this is a chance to make right for a lot of the Eric Crawford’s of the world and really, truly do some honest investigative reporting for a change.

      We’ll know how it turns out in a few months. If they pin this on McGee and a couple others or even if they just go after Pitino you still aren’t getting to the real issue which is Jurich, Ramsey, and the trustee board that have had their hands in a lot of these scandals yet come off seemingly untouchable. IMO, this particular scandal is the tip of the iceberg and there is a lot more going on, particularly with some of the accounting practices. I do give credit to some of the Louisville media up there, the past year they seem to have finally had enough and are starting to go after these stories. We’ll see how far they are willing to take it and if anybody is a Louisville version of Jerry Tipton.

    How does it make us look bad that Matt is going to talk about how Pitino and his crew bought their players/recruits a bunch of hookers? I’ll wait…

      I agree…. I’ll also wait with you.

    Shocked! This is the same Mr Pitino that was shocked when the Karen story broke. Then when it was all said and done! Mr P. Had lied. For all you Louisville fans don’t preach about principals unless your house is clean and we know with the P and P boys your house is shall we say street worthy!
