There are times in the summer where news is scarce in the Kentucky world, so in those times I often like to dive into the KSR archives to see where this website has been over the years. So on those boring days, I will begin a series of posts called “On this Date”, where you will get an idea of what this website was covering on this date over the past 8 years. Some of the stories you will certainly recognize and many of them you will almost definitely forgotten. Either way, it should be a fun little romp into the past. Enjoy:
May 8th, 2013
Anderson Cooper and Charles Ramsey, MUST SEE TV
May 8th, 2012
Julius Mays offered scholarship by Kentucky : I think this turned out pretty well for Kentucky. Great player, good personality, filled whatever role needed. Would have loved to see this kid play on a better team.
Steve Kerr pushes for 20-year-old limit in NBA: Honestly, for the past 10 years, you could just replace Kerr’s name with somebody else and this story could be repeated over and over again.
May 8th, 2011
Deandre Liggins declares for NBA: While Liggins probably wasn’t “ready” for the NBA, but his family needed the financial support. Liggins has earned almost $1.3 million in his 3 seasons, so I think he made the right choice.
Jon Hood causes some fans to question 4-wheeler usage
May 8th, 2010
Eric Bledsoe and Daniel Orton stay in draft: 2 guys Kentucky fans thought would stay before the season both go. Their futures were quite different though as Bledsoe is a blossoming star in the league and Orton is……Orton.
May 8th, 2009
Patrick Patterson decides to return to Kentucky: Obviously a great story but I also should point out that Beisner says that Jodie Meeks is likely to follow suit. Way to ruin our national championship run Beisner!
Calipari makes late charge at point guard: That point guard’s name turned out to be Marquis Teague. I think that story turned out pretty well for us if I remember correctly. How did it turn out for UL?
May 8th, 2008
Tipton vs Maggard: Remember Vinny Zollo and Michael Avery? They were 2 of Billy Gillispie’s early commits and Tipton interviewed their parents. Maggard claimed those interviews crossed the line. What we have left is another in a long line of nerdy “media” fights.
May 8th, 2007
Matt interviews Beas Hamga and Tyler Zeller: In that order no less. Tells you how enamored we all were about Beas Hamga at one time.
May 8th, 2006
A highlight of Williamsburg’s Ryan Wilson: 13th region star and OVW wrestler. Groundbreaking reporting.
