Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Wake Forest radio host mocks KSR, BBN: “I think that we could do their radio show better than they could.”

Does the BBN have a new rival? The Wake Forest basketball program and radio host Josh Graham have suddenly found themselves at the top of the list.

Let’s rewind to Tuesday, when Graham had new Wake Forest head coach Steve Forbes on his podcast, The Drive. Forbes questioned why Sarr would want to “put all that time in for a prestigious degree” at Wake Forest, only to end up graduating from “a place like Kentucky?” The question quickly caught fire on social media, and UK figures like Vince Marrow and Erin Calipari even weighed in on the disrespect. The KSR crew decided to discuss the remarks on Wednesday’s radio show. By Wednesday evening, Graham had already fired back at the BBN.

The radio host said Kentucky Sports Radio was “losing its mind” over the comments, and he repeatedly called the BBN “the most obnoxious” fan base. His reasoning?

“They act like they’re the very best, but there is nothing, nothing I could say that they’re the very best at. You’re not the best at anything,” Graham said.

Yes, you’re a blue blood, but you’re easily the fourth best of the blue bloods. Give me Duke, give me Carolina, give me UCLA,” he added later in the show.

Eventually, Graham narrows in on KSR, calling Matt Jones “the foremost authority of the state of Kentucky” (true) and a native of Duke, North Carolina (not true). Facts are optional, right?

“Control your own damn show, dawg. What are we doing here? If you’re going to take shots at Wake Forrest, at least come correct. No one is confusing your radio show with anything other than some guys hanging together in Kentucky. Some slap-words I can’t say on the radio, Graham said. “I think that we could do their radio show better than they could.”

Then, they tried. Oh, did they try. The co-hosts spent the next few minutes mocking the state of Kentucky, complete with dueling banjos, fake country accents, a line about toothpaste, a worn-out joke about marrying your sister and even the phrase “possum biscuit.”

What would Kentucky Sports Radio sound like if they were in control? Take a listen:

 

Graham also had a challenge for Kentucky’s fanbase:

Who’s the best Kentucky Wildcat to ever play in that program? I guarantee you won’t find a guy who’s in the top-20 or top-30 of the history of college basketball. Wake Forrest, I know I have one. I might have two,” Graham said. “I’ll take Tim Duncan over any Kentucky Wildcat who’s ever played. I’ll take Chris Paul… over any guard Kentucky has ever had. If I’m wrong, come at me.”

He even came out swinging at Rupp Arena:

Rupp Arena is attached to a damn shopping mall. Did you know that? I went there expecting to see this great basketball arena, and what I saw was a shopping mall that you could potentially get some nice antiques from,” Graham said. “While you’re there, maybe you could watch some basketball. That’s Kentucky.”

The host was also careful to shoutout all of UK’s esteemed graduates, including Ashley Judd (true), Drake (who went to school in Canada) and Mitch McConnell (who graduated from the University of Louisville). For someone who tried to roast KSR for not having all of the facts straight about a game from the 1990s, this guy really didn’t do his homework.

Here’s the beginning of the show, where Graham discusses the original comments, says Olivier Sarr is taking “an incredible risk” with the Wildcats and calls Kentucky the “most-obnoxious” fan base. You can also listen to the hour-long podcast by clicking here.

Tune into KSR tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. It’s sure to be a good one.

    He loses all credit calling UCLA a blue blood lmao. They have been nothing short of irrelevant since the Wizard graced their sidelines. Just like Duke will be when K is gone, IU has been since BK was shown the door, etc. Wake can’t hold anyone’s jock strap. Have they ever even made a FF? (Spoiler they did in ’62).

    The last team they made an E8 his supposed greatest player in WF history was shown the door by UK. What an idiot.

    “Wake Forest’s average attendance this season is 6,752. The Deacons would have to draw 10,217 to avoid the first season in the Joel’s history with an average of fewer than 7,000 fans per game“

    I’m a UK grad living in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and I can assure you all, Wake Forest is as irrelevant as irrelevant gets. One of the weakest fan bases I’ve ever seen, terrible crowds at home football and basketball games. When UNC and Puke come to town, the majority of spectators are there for those two teams. We shouldn’t even be worried about what they say. Thanks for our new starting center, enjoy the basement of the ACC.

    I, like many of you, don’t see the point in giving this tool clicks. Anybody who would put any of the teams mentioned (Duke, UNC or *snicker* UCLA) ahead of Kentucky who is #1 in overall wins; #1 in tournament games won; #2 in FFs behind a team with 2 less championships; #2 in championships behind a team with one (maybe) during his lifetime; and the winningest team of the last decade is obviously a troll and DESPERATE for any kind of attention.

    Does Wake Forest play basketball? I thought they disbanded the program when the idiots fired Dino Gaudio. How did that work out for you? Is there a more irrelevant program in the ACC right now than Wake? Worry about beating Duke, Carolina, NC State, Miami, Florida St, Boston College, Miami, etc before you come at us. We have respect for true programs, but not you as have to do something within the last 20 years.

      He is desperate for attention to make his radio
      show relevant. If he draws enough attention from the BBN then quickly Ky haters will be lining up for interviews starring him. Guys like Gotlieb,and numerous other haters, especially ESPN hacks, will get wood over this guys ranting about Ky. Jerry Tipturd for example would be thrilled to feature this guy, as he tails about the Cats.
      The best thing here is to ignore him !

    Jones the foremost authority on Kentucky? His knowledge of college basketball, including Kentucky basketball, is primitive to say the least as is his knowledge of this state. He probably can’t even name the last 10 governors. You embarrassed yourself by putting “true” in parentheses.

    So which is it Fat Sam Smith, Is it about teams or about individuals? Ask your greatest player ever about his experience against Kentucky and you will see what we do well. We kick your @%% that is what we do well. We are 5-0 with an average margin of victory of 20+ ppg against your crap team.

    Shocked to learn Wake Forest actually have enough fans to support a sports radio show. Plus what has Wake Forest done in the last 50 years, the only few teams they had that were any good we beat in the NCAA with their best ever players.

    Matt carved out a great niche with KSR, there’s no way around that. He got access with the school and provides consistent content, even if it isn’t as good as it was in the Beisner days. That being said, they could probably do a better show. Matt is good on big days, but the general filler content is hard to listen to.

    The Hillbilly stereotype is so 20th century America, along side the Aunt Jemima Negro, the Bloodthirsty Hun and the Bucktoothed Jap. If we’re going to wallow in that stinking dumpster of history…

    Many descendants of Appalachian blacks and Melungeons can thank their lucky stars that their ancestors had the Eastern Kentucky counties to flee to from the whip of their North Carolina masters.
