Was the UK Basketball season a disappointment? Matt and Mary Jo discuss on Hey Kentucky!

The basketball season is officially over, and to say it was a roller coaster ride would be an understatement. From the slow start, to the emergence of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, to the four-game losing streak, to the SEC Championship, and to the Kansas State loss, it’s been one up, followed by one down after another

Tonight on Hey Kentucky, Matt Jones and Mary Jo Perino recapped the UK basketball season and asked an intriguing question: was this year a disappointment?

Check out their responses below:

    If 2 leave not really, builds for next year. If 4 or 5 go then yes. Kstate maybe the worst elite 8 team in a decade

      There’s not a final four team this year who would be more than a marginal elite eight team most years. This is a very down year in college ball.

    Maybe not to them, but to the BBN crazy folk, it seemed to be. Especially how it ended, vs. Kansas State.

    Preseason top 5, lost 11 games and spent 4 total weeks unranked, and need Missouri to beat Arkansas just to get a double bye in SECT, then blow the easiest path to FF in history of tournament, only to wait and see if 7 guys think they are pros.

    If 2 maybe 3 leave then all of this is growing pains, and can be seen as a great foundation for better things. If 4-5 leave it’s back to square one, making last year a disappointment

      This was the most impressive coaching job I’ve ever seen in college basketball. Cal took the youngest team in modern college basketball history and somehow turned them into an SEC tournament champion in four-and-a-half months. Wow.

    As ignorant and wrong Matt has been regarding the basketball program over the years, I couldn’t vote for him to bring those same qualities to the Senate (they have enough idiots there already). I don’t think he has ever uttered an original thought and steals most of his opinions from PTI or other talking heads. Surrounding himself with that jackass Ryan Lemond (ultimate yes man) shows how poor his judgment and decision-making skills are. I agree McConnell is awful but don’t embarrass yourself by running and losing to that stiff.

      Here’s what the Democrats are missing. Yes, Mitch is very unpopular, but the reason he’s unpopular is because he’s too much like THEM.

    If my choices are Matt ( a flaming liberal ) or anybody else who even pretends to be conservative, I will vote for anybody but Matt.

    The guy struck gold with the UK niche market. That does not make him fit to be elected to public office. Just seeing some of the (to be kind) stuff that he has thrown around on this site and on his tv show, I wouldn’t support him for dog catcher.

    He has told us that he used to be an attorney, but he isn’t smart enough to stay out of politics. Things that make you go hmmmmmm.

      I think Matt feels some guilt because he knows his political debates on KSR were the primary reason Bevin won both the GOP primary and the election (in each race Bevin trailed until the KSR debate and then pulled ahead). Just a guess, but I think Matt wants to make up for that in some way, because a governor who leans libertarian is a progressive’s greatest fear in life. Anything that puts power in the hands of the people rather than a centralized authority is viewed as a bad thing by them.

      My previous post aside, and I’m surely in the minority on this, I would vote for Matt to select an official state playlist. I share his appreciation of classic country.
