SportsNation is really upset about Randle’s decision

And they think we are too.

Thankfully we have had almost a year to prepare for Randle’s departure. I don’t think his choice has shocked anyone, really. I think they forgot about the four McDonald All-American freshmen we have coming to join our team next season. Not to mention the ones we already have on our bench, give or take those who still have to decide if they’re returning or not.

We will be just fine, SportsNation, but thanks for the concern.

    Actually, no we are not, we knew this was coming. Now if the twins leave, then you could say that.

    Where have they been??? I doubt there was one person that was surprised by Randle’s decision. Disappointed, of course!!! Surprised, not a chance!!!

    I agree with the first poster. I will look like that if the Twins declare!

    That show and “Numbers Never Lie” or whatever are probably two of the worst shows currently airing on television, right there with the Kardashians.

    ESPN isn’t even subtle with the anti-Kentucky things they do anymore

      Can we not fall into the trap that so many fan bases fall into of thinking that everyone in the media is out to get us? I mean seriously. ESPN gives us tons of positive press and considering it has a large contract with the SEC isn’t interested in downplaying the biggest tradition in college basketball. It employs Dick Vitale for pity’s sake. A man who practically orgasms everytime he talks about the Cats. Just stop.

    Did they do this for Kansas and Duke and others? No? They’re just trolls? Ok then.

      Lighten up Francis. It’s just a friggin’ promo for the show which indicates what choice Randle made. So much of BBN spends half it’s time arrogant and the other half paranoid it’s tiresome.

      We’re NOT paranoid. We just wish people would stop talking about us all the time.

    So after 5 years of 13 OAD players coming through the program they think we would be shocked and/or upset that Randle is leaving early? Well, okay. They should have kept this one in the bag in case the twins declare for the NBA.

    Really? With the name of Sportsnation I would believe they could/should be in touch with sports and their fans….Disappointed, bet the house, knowing he would go…..no surprise here.
    Are they a spinoff of Field and Stream? Because the whole sports world KNEW JR was gone.

    Are we disappointed that one of our players is going to achieve his dream? Nope.

    no….No….NO….NO…. SportsNation… you got it ALL WRONG…

    THAT is how…

    * SportsNation, CBS, ESPN, FOX1, pundits looked after UK beat Wichita State in the NCAA TOURNEY

    * Wichita State Fans looked after UK beat them in the tourney…

    * Louisville Fans and Rick Pitino looked after UK beat them in the tourney…

    * Michigan Wolverine fans looked after Aaron Harrison hit that three in the tourney….

    * Wisconsin Fans and all BIG-PRE-TEN-END fans looked after Aaron Harrison hit that three in the tourney…

    * And all NCAA COLLEGE BASKETBALL FANS looked when WCS, LEE, announced they are coming back to UK NEXT YEAR…

    We at BBN want nothing but the best for Randle….

    Only one reason these pissholes do this, for the hits!
    Ignore them, and they WILL go away!

      We have a winner. I totally agree. I never waste any clicks on any of the attempts to troll BBN. The more you click, the more they prosper.

    I’m not surprised or disappointed but I am thrilled for the young man and his mother who raised him . This is a true American success story. Best of luck Julias the BBN is looking forward to seeing you tear up the NBA!!!

    Never has there been a bigger need for a mass chill pill than this meltdown over a simple show promo. The point they were really making was a-our show is on the air and b-we’ll be talking about major college stars making NBA decisions. Good Lord can we just lighten up?! As a fan base sometimes we really, really, really just need to get over ourselves.

    Alas, Sportsnation… Randle left the cupboard bare in Lexington.
    Except for the 9 McDonalds All-Americans on next year’s roster.

    I didn’t know sports nation was still on until 3 wks ago when I heard the overrated blondes voice while I was doing some chores. I said damn! When she get back? She still annoys me, the fake Skip is a joke and Marcellus Wiley? Yeah I passed and turned on the news.

      Do not like her either …. after I heard her say “everyone hates Kentucky.” She’s an idiot!
