    Looks like Green Day is headed to the Rock N Roll hall of fame. I guess I am okay with that.. I am sure uncle matt would like to see Conway Twitty there.

    No point trying to register for the UL message board. They immediately ban users as soon as they sniff out that you’re a UK fan. The hilarious,thing is how much they fight with each other. Even their own fans are allowed no slight criticism of Pitino or the team ever.

      you can get in the rivals board if you’re not flaming blue, but the scout board is ultra sensitive. i tried to disguise my uk allegience and was still permanently banned after a day and half. it’s still good for a laugh to go there and read all the birdbrain idiotic comments.

    Matt, you should have Joe B. come on once a week during the season for a half hour or so. He is a living legend who is still sharp. Also, it would be doing a lot for the old guy now since his show is off the air.

    Denny Crum. He still hates Pitino for his ouster at UofL.



  16. RealCatsFan

    Matt, you have to mention UofL forcing Denny Crum to “retire” when pitino became available. Denny was a Hall of Fame coach with 2 NC’s, and he was not winning at the level they wanted. Similar scenario to Roy at UNC.

    Seeing the picture of the fan holding the sign up at the “Today” show makes me wonder – what fan base is more prevalent worldwide – Kentucky Basketball or Alabama Football? I think hands down BBN has it over Roll Tide. Our fans would travel to Mars to watch their team play. And our fans travel pretty well for football games too. Don’t see too many Crimson Tide fans traveling to watch their basketball team play.



  20. Delk for 3

    No way the team is better without Alex. Offense could improve some with more Lyles, but Alex’s defense can be a weapon to help contain high scoring perimeter players. When Alex is at his best, his value is very much evident. Nobody can do what he does when he’s playing his best. Simply put, we don’t beat Louisville in the NCAA last season without Alex. I believe that 100 percent.

    Matt is completely overhyping this Louisville team. Who have they played and beaten? You have to ask yourself such a question before making assessments on a team. Indiana plays zero defense and has no real inside presence — a total mismatch. Minnesota got whipped by St. John’s, and barely beat Georgia. Ohio St. is one of the worst Buckeye teams in a long time, and their inexperienced backcourt gave into Louisville’s pressure.
    In addition to all this, the idea that they are actually better without Hancock and Russ Smith is foolish. Louisville’s ability to score is seriously lacking and they could not go last year offensively without continuously depending on Smith and Hancock. Just wait and this will be so evident against UK. The Cats win the game easily. I firmly believe this. UK 68 — UofL 49

    Harrell will be neutralized by Marcus Lee and Dakari. Willie will have them frazzled. I heard a U of L call in show this morning say that Mango will give UK fits; what the hell has he done this season?! If we don’t be The Birdgang by 20 I’ll be surprised.

    By playing those last two Withers ‘ clips, Matt has increased his “musical taste ” quotient by about 5,000 points. He is quickly approaching a positive score.

    To me, its like nails on a chalk board when someone calls is UofK. That may be my biggest pet peeve. Only good thing about it, is when someone refers to Kentucky as that, you know they are UofL fans or from Louisville.

    As I said on another thread, Harrell plays like his hair is on fire and is good when he can scare people with his posturing and mean face and physically over power his opponent. He plays like a bull in a china shop and breaks things. UK will frustrate and foul him out. It is the style they play that could be problematic not Harrell.
