Kentucky Sports Radio

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

We already know the refs for Wednesday

You want the good news or the bad news? The good news is we already know the officials for Wednesday’s game vs. Louisville. The bad news is one of them is Roger Ayers. According to Jeff Greer, Ayers, Jamie Luckie, and Ron Groover will call Wednesday’s game in the Yum Center.

Kentucky is 11-9 in games called by Ayers, the most recent being the Cats’ win over the Tar Heels on Saturday. That was a happy memory, but there have been plenty of bad ones over the years from Ayers, including three technicals on Calipari.¬†You may also remember Ayers as part of the officiating crew that called three technicals on Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, and Mississippi State’s I.J. Ready last season in Rupp. Meanwhile, Kentucky is 27-9 in games called by Groover and 18-6 in games called by Luckie.

Hopefully we don’t see any of these perplexing calls on Wednesday:

    How does Ayers end up on back to back big games 4 days a part on opposite ends of the country? That doesn’t add up.

    UK is 11-9 in games called by Ayers???? Are you kidding me??? This is absurd! This statistic alone ought to catch the attention of SEC officials. UK wins 85 plus % of its games but only 55% of its games called by this guy? Is there any similar comparison with other refs?

    Is Ayers stalking us? Time for a restraining order.

    How does a douche like Ayers keep getting major games played by UK? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I’d love for someone at KSR to contact the NCAA to find out how officials are assigned…what criteria is used and so forth.

    Is he the one that missed the traveling call against NC, that should have been called instead of the timeout.
