    Bam! We got’em!

    Some interesting callers last night with football. Heard Ryan leaked some news, what was it?

      I think he leaked the bam news before they actually heard it from the sources on staff… but i could be wrong about that.

    Did anyone hear the fan named “Dale” who called Stoops’ radio show yesterday evening? The guy absolutely unloaded on Stoops. Tom Leach was going to cut him off several times, but Stoops told him to let him keep rolling, saying that he is a “big boy” and can take it. It was pretty entertaining.

      I’m on my work computer and am so used to things not working that I always have the 630 feed open and the above link available so that I can switch whenever it cuts out. If that doesn’t work, that usually means the problem is on my end, and restarting the computer helps.

      my other problem is that i take lunch at 11. so i would rather listen to the show late than miss 30 minutes of it in the middle. 🙁

    That 2013 class was very overrated, Randle was good, Young was okay, Harrison’s has some moments, Johnson was meh, Lee and Willis still can prove themselfs, but up to this point meh.

    2009 and 2011 were both much better classes.

    I really think Murray has to have a great game tonight for the Cats to win. Also really worried that he’ll be in foul trouble all game. He’ll probably have to guard Grayson Allen, who will drive it at him over and over again and you know there’ll be at least one questionable, game-changing charge called against a UK player…

  11. Wow, Cal doesn’t even have to bait the hook to reel ’em in!
    Bengals are STILL 8-1. Who Dey???!!!

    IT’S BBALL SEASON!!!!!!!!! GO CATS!!! BEAT DUKE!!!

      i guess you gave up on getting your gravatar changed yesterday. really wish it wasn’t that complicated of a process. i know a lot of people really want one but can’t seem to get it to work in some cases.

    • Yep, I gave up. It’s crazy that it seems like it just doesn’t work with this account somehow. It may be that I could start fresh with an all new account and a different email address, but then I would have a different user name here it looks like.

      Thanks for the help though!

    Duke averages twice as many free throws as their opponents. I already expect them to get all the calls tonight. This knowledge will not stop me from being frustrated and yelling at my TV.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:41 am November 17, 2015 Permalink

      we do too (it is a point no Louisville fan will ever let us forget)

      Although that stat is a bit inflated because lesser talented teams have no option but to either let you score, or foul you. however, duke is well known for getting charge calls on flops about 400 times per game.



    • J-Dub421
      10:51 am November 17, 2015 Permalink

      At Cameron Duke averages almost triple the free throws.

      Look at style of play though jay. We drive the lane, a lot. Duke shoots jump shots from the outside. This is why only shooting 10 free throws to Wisconsin’s 22 in the final four last years was so frustrating. Wisconsin got calls shooting outside jumpers, but we didn’t when they hacked at us as we drove.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:55 am November 17, 2015 Permalink

      oh i agree that in big games there’s no reason the free throws should be the way they are.. i’m just explaining away the overall numbers because of outshooting all the cupcakes.

    Why did the comment box redirect me to an advertisement, like, 6 times before I could type a comment?

      It was doing that last week and several of us had to install ad block to get in and post at all.

    • Tyler said the other night that the site was hacked. It had redirected me to an Arab dating site, of all things, that same night. 🙂

    Duke always has that one white guy with an extremely punchable face that always flops all over the floor and scores in the most annoying way possible. I really want UK to win so I can see the sadness in Grayson Allen’s stupid face after the loss.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:27 am November 17, 2015 Permalink

      Duke and IU share a lot in addition to the same coaching tree. Although IU usually has a big goofy white guy who looks like he already got punched in the face. 😀

    Anywhoo, apparently Matt didn’t hear Ryan encouraging Kentucky Joe to write a song and call KSR multiple times today, while he was hosting the Leach Report.

      I have great tolerance for most things that are NOT Kentucky Joe. The KSR roadtrip should be epic.

      too bad i can’t figure out the stupid gravatar pictures…

    • Cool! How did you do that? Did you have to log in to WordPress.com? BTW, I wonder also if one of the problems was when I first tried to do the Gravatar thing (when they first required a log in a while back), that at the time I didn’t know there is (apparently?) a difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?



    • ukjaybrat
      11:50 am November 17, 2015 Permalink

      under ksr login menu on the right
      – select site admin

      this will take you to the site’s dashboard. which is mostly statistics you can’t see because you aren’t an admin and news from wordpress
      – on the left menu, select profile

      this will take you to your wordpress(?) profile page.
      – change your “Nickname (required)” to whatever you want displayed as your username
      – then change your “Display name publicly as” to the same thing using the dropdown box

      hopefully you can create a new account and setup a gravatar and change your name the way you want it using this …. hopefully ::fingers crossed::

    And having been stationed in S. Korea twice they use VIOP phones to make it look like they’re calling from a stateside phone.

    Marquette is not on the same level as us in any way shape or form. Michigan State is just bland. Good, but bland and not really hateable.

    Duke is the only other program that’s consistently on our level. Duke is a big rival, even if we rarely play them.

    I do not understand why some have to get into race when talking about basketball players. And it seems like the word “goofy” can only be used to describe people of a certain persuasion and they are always on the opponent team. Is that necessary? The result of last years Final Four games should have gotten you out of that habit.
