University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The referees for Kentucky vs. Mississippi State are…

Doug Shows, Doug Sirmons, and Steven Anderson. Oh boy.

According to BigBlueHistory.net, the Cats are 83-32 in games officiated by Shows, 45-13 in games officiated by Sirmons, and 6-1 in games officiated by Anderson.

Right now, Kentucky is averaging 15.5 fouls called per game at Rupp Arena. Over or under? (OVER)

    Shows should not be allowed to do UK games.

    Is Anderson the high stepping ref?

    Only 9 TOTAL fouls called in first half! Give stripes some props for letting teams play! Just saying.

      I want them to call the rules that teams prepare for. I don’t want to “let em play” because it means guards get hacked on drives, which kills us if the foul isn’t called. It also means bigger, less talented guys inside can destroy our bigs because pushing and shoving wins out over basketball.

    Generally speaking, if you’ve heard of a ref before, it probably means they’re a nightmare.

    We shouldn’t know their names. They’re not performers. They should do their jobs and be forgotten. Any time we’re talking about them, it’s because they suck at their job.

    Huh…interesting that Drew made the same “the officials let them play” comment on his game summary. Not that he is has final say.
    You gonna respond and argue the point with him too? Did not think so.
