CONTEST: Name the KSR Football Podcast

The KSR Football Podcast — starring former UK quarterbacks Freddie Maggard and Jared Lorenzen; KSR football writer Nick Roush; and me, a former tight end/defensive end at West Broadway Elementary School — has been going strong for a couple of years now with the best Kentucky football coverage around.

We’re already off to a good start this fall, but we still have one big problem: We don’t have a name.

I put a call out earlier in the summer for suggestions, and though we got lots of good ones, we still haven’t decided on one. Well, now our backs are against the wall and a decision MUST be made as the season is right around the corner.

So, here’s one last call for help before we tape this week’s episode later this afternoon. I will read some of my favorites during today’s taping and we’ll have a name in place soon after that.

You can click on this tweet to read the many suggestions we’ve already received:

Submit your own on Twitter or in the comments section below.

You can throw us some football questions for today’s episode, too.

HELP!

    I like how “grid” can be both associated with football and getting the message out to many. So mix it up if ya wis but my initial 3 thoughts are..

    KSR Gridiron
    KSR Wildcat Grid
    KSR on the Grid

    Good luck Drew!

    with Freddie, J-Lo, Nick & Drew

    -brief 1.5 second pause for dramatic effect-

    Always Off the Grid!

    -slightly longer 2.5 second brief pause for dramatic effect-

    The Podcast…begins… (background air raid siren and countdown to launch 3, 2, 1)…NOW! (with explosion sound in background)

    -explosion sound fades as awesome intro music rises and whoever is going to speak to open the show speaks to open the show saying whatever they want to introduce the opening of the show…for example, “Welcome to another episode of The KSR Cast Iron Crew Podcast! I’m Drew Franklin…joined by Nick Roush…and Legends of Kentucky Football Lore…Freddie Maggard and Jared Lorenzen!”

    -and the show begins…

    “The Immortals”

    And here is why: The greatest UK team of this era was the 1898 squad, known simply to Kentuckians as “The Immortals.”[6] To this day, the Immortals remain the only undefeated, untied, and unscored upon team in UK football history.[6] The Immortals were coached by W. R. Bass and ended the year a perfect 7—0—0, despite an average weight of 147 pounds per player.[6] Victories came easily for this squad, as the Immortals raced by Kentucky University (18- 0), Georgetown (28—0), Company H of the 8th Massachusetts (59—0), Louisville Athletic Club (16—0), Centre (6—0), 160th Indiana (17—0) and Newcastle Athletic Club (36—0).[6]

    I like some use of the word Scramble, as it shows off the randomness of the KSR empire. So perhaps

    The Kentucky Scramble
    Kentucky Scramble Drill

    Or perhaps from some other football puns
    Four Men In The Box
    Kentucky Base Coverage (in homage to a 4 man group as in a 4 man secondary). I dont love this one, but maybe someone else much funnier than me could make this work.

    Please don’t use Blitz with your name, as it will sound like every Friday Night Local Sports TV coverage of High School Football.
