What is Calipari doing on his vacation?

John Calipari is currently on vacation down in Florida, dodging any UK-related thoughts and phone calls while recovering from hip surgery. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer snuck one in on him yesterday, but other than that, he’s completely off the grid.

The silence is good for Cal, but it’s hard on those people who rely on his every move to keep a website constantly updated year-round. (That’d be me.) It’s also tough on UK basketball fans who want news 24/7, even in the summer months when nothing is going on. (That’d be you.) We’re all losers when he’s gone.

So tonight, while Cal eats fresh seafood and watches the sunset from his rented beach chair, let’s try to guess what he has been up to all week while tuning out everything back in Kentucky. I don’t have him pegged as the type of guy to take out a case of Corona and rally for a night session, but I still have five good guesses as to what he has been doing in Florida:



1.) Playing pick-up basketball…


“I got next!”


2.) Deep-sea fishing…


Bring your own bait


3.) Not coaching the Lakers…


(Silence in Los Angeles)


4.) Hanging out with other people with bad hips…


“Of course you’d fit right in in Rupp Arena!”


5.) Working on his new book, “Why So Quiet? A Message For The Haters”…


Coming April 2015

    The last picture is gold, but the orange leaf references are getting old in my opinion. After years and years its just tiring now.

    This site has always been on that fine line of true wit and sometimes offensive to a few people, but always humorous. Crossed the line with that pic – classless

    Really like the site, don’t think we needed the last picture. My opinion, it was in poor taste.

    In between the above activities, he’s trying to talk the Magic into buying out Daniel Orton’s contract with the Maine Red Claws and resigning him.

    I’m sure even Calipari himself would say that he prefer not being depicted like that if asked. You can do better KSR.

    The Puritanical outrage in these comments lately has been more humorous than the content posted that provoked it. Keep up the good work, Drew!

    Love you guys, but last pic is in appropriate. I am guessing Cal would be thrilled to know he was dipicted like that. You guys can do better than that to get a laugh.

    I’M TELLING JERRY TIPTON! This has become #1 on my list things to complain about!

    All jokes aside, this looks far too realistic, needs more obvious p-shop “artifacts”, just so the easily duped will not be so easily duped.

    Please do not use my likeness in this way ever again. In fact I would appreciate your removing it now. The BBN deserves at least a minimum of class. This is WAY over the line.

    Unbelievably poor taste with that last photo, nothing at all funny about that. I thought my young son could get on the site, guess that’s out. In fact, I think I’ll get my UK news elsewhere after that, ridiculous.

    10:10 pm May 15, 2014 Permalink

    Drew seems very juvenile. He’s probably one of those people who never got beyond high school and continues to make juvenile jokes and make fun of people who are different than him. I realize it’s free speech but I bet Cal hears about this and asks they remove it. I’m sure Matt wants to stay on his good side.

      GETTING a little big-headed? Jones moved way past big-headed long ago, just listen to the radio show sometime. Anybody who calls in and DARES to disagree with him is immediately cut off and belittled while Drew remains the ever-faithful lapdog sycophant. That’s why I never listen to the show and usually pass over posts written by Matt. They’re so condescending and smug it’s sickening. Give me Mrs. Tyler T. anytime, at least she doesn’t thinks she’s Queen of BBN.

    Oh, tell your kids to pause Grand Theft Auto or the new South Park episode so you can explain to their pampered a$$ what a middle finger means. Geez, this world is full of softies now. Get over it.

  22. Shock therapy
    10:24 pm May 15, 2014 Permalink

    The last shot is nothing more than 7th grade shock humor. No more refined than fart jokes. If you’re going to be that edgy, particularly in a way that would more than likely anger the subject, you better darn well make sure the joke is worth it. Here it clearly isn’t. Any nitwit can come up with the concept. It’s slightly less clever than Git-r-done. Sit with that for a moment. Of course it comes to you courtesy of the same folks who think Orange Leaf and Porcini’s jokes are still fresh. If you fellas are going to continue to enjoy the same access or even more access to all things UK athletics than even real journalists are afforded you’re probably going to have to make a decision on what type of content to allow on the website.

      *Slow clap*

      Matt would agree that if you’re not sure something is funny then cut it out. People don’t come here for comedy. Drew has made some good jokes in the past but this is not his best work.

    • Ummm
      12:38 pm May 16, 2014 Permalink

      “People dont come here for comedy”….I was in college when KSR started up and the only people coming to this site were college kids who came for funny stuff like this. If you dont like it go somewhere else (that concept seems to be lost on most people these days).

    I’ve made bad jokes before. But, geez, I don’t publish it so the world can comment on it. Yikes! I feel your embarrassment.

    Well I guess we know the main demographic that reads this site. Lighten up, blue hairs. The world isn’t going to end because your grand kids saw a middle finger. Maybe if you guys would actually teach your kids something about the real world instead of sheltering them from every little bad thing that may come along you might not be raising the next generation of cry baby pussies. Also, while we’re on the subject of old folks, please start standing up at Rupp Arena. You’re boring, you don’t do anything for the players, and nobody likes you.

    Drew instead of deleting comments calling you out for that sorry attempt at humor, do the the right thing (for once in your subservient sidekick existence) and remove the picture.

    I’m an old codger, but I appreciate good humor. The rest of you probably cry and let your faces get blood red when you let out a fart. All you uppity dumbasses are what’s wrong with America!

    Hey Drew and Matt, love the site and the many entertaining and hilarious articles. Since you guys cover teams that interest UK fans, you should cover Reds news, and some Legends, news during the summer UK sports drought. I know there are a ton of Reds fans in this state, and quite a few Legends fans in Lexington and surrounding counties. Anyway, it would be better than a story about a local psychic who read Cal’s innermost thought about leaving for the NBA. GO BIG BLUE!!!

    Dont let up. I want updates 24-7 all year. especially in the off season. There are plenty of things to write about. Focus on future wildcats and things of that nature. I’ll check in about noon tomorrow to see what you have for me. Thank you. GO CATS!!!!!

    Matt, I’m confused by the direction this website has gradually taken under Drew’s leadership. Who is the target audience now?
    I, (along with what appears to be numerous others), find the last photoshop really disappointing and senseless.

    • Ummm

    Wow, jr high humor on a site that wants to be the go to place for UK basketball. If classless is what you are shooting for then you hit the nail on the head. For all you defenders, please go back to punching your buddies in the arm and playing video games.

    Definitely crossed a line on that last pic. Poor taste. Humor in the rest but the last one should be removed. Stuff like that gives the haters more fuel for the fire. Even the Dirty Birds web site probably doesn’t stoop that low.

    Matt said on the radio that one person has posted 8 times with different names. THEY CAN SEE YOUR IP ADDRESS so if you post with different names, you arent fooling anyone.

    I can guarantee your kids are flying the bird to all who will look when you arent around. Get in touch with reality.
