    I enjoyed seeing the melt down from the Louisville media over Charlie Strong. It will be really interesting if they hire David Cutcliffe. A guy most of us didnt want last year, although we’d probably want him now after the season Duke had.

    I didn’t know what to do since there wasn’t a game on this weekend.

    So UofL didn’t have class today? Was that because of the cold or Charlie Strong leaving? I heard Joker was calling.

    So when the alarm went off at 5:40 this morning for my girlfriend to get up (I stay in bed til 6:30). I heard the radio guy go, “No, Chosen from Karate Kid II was the answer we were looking for.” I was so intrigued by what could have prompted such a question my mind wouldn’t stop racing and I have been up ever since.

  30. UKCPA
    10:16 am January 6, 2014 Permalink

    Matt Elam finally has come to the realization of who Kentucky football is. To quote Matt Jones previously . . “We is what we is”. The UK football program is headed nowhere and Elam deep in his heart knows that. We’ll never be a program that will have a chance to win more than 5 or 6 games a season. Maybe Stoops can bring us back to that point, but that’s the ceiling for this program. It’s amazing how the traditional bad football programs can all turn it around, except for UK. Vandy, Duke, etc. Just can’t be done here. As much as I would like for Elam to come to UK, he’s an idiot if he doesn’t go to Alabama.

  40. Jacob
    10:20 am January 6, 2014 Permalink

    My thought on Petrino is that he has only been at WKU a year and if he left the school for UL, what does that say about his character to leave a school that fast. Example: If a girl will cheat on her man with you, she will cheat on you when she become your woman! Let him come to UL and then we can have this same conversation in 3 years when he leaves for somewhere else.

    Matt I have a question on the Free Throws. Could it be that in practice they shoot with a wall behind them and when it comes to games there is that debt of the stadium? I know sometimes that can have an affect sometimes.



  42. Bucky Small Hooves
    10:21 am January 6, 2014 Permalink

    UofL’s record of bringing douche bags back to the state says that Bobby Petrino has already received an offer.



  43. D-lo
    10:21 am January 6, 2014 Permalink

    Matt had this team losing 5-6 more games the rest of the season after UNC, now we beat Belmont and Louisville and he watches a practice, and here we go again here comes Matty Hype comparing to 2012 practicing like a champion and all this other pumped up hype. We can’t we just be a good team thats improved, which is what most sensible people thought. Just wait we’ll drop a bad sec game here in the next few weeks and matt will be talking about being a 6 seed or some bs



  44. Free Throws
    10:21 am January 6, 2014 Permalink

    WIth the heart monitor thing they still know that free throws are coming so they are prepared to shoot them. It would be better to randomly stop practice and have them shoot free throws when they arent expecting it. If you want to put the closest thing to ‘game pressure’ on them have one guy make 4 out of 5 or the entire team runs.



  45. Bluegrass

    I’m not worried with Elam. The kid loves the recruiting process. He loves the attention. Let him take his time and make the best decision for him. UK fans should be happy he didn’t accept the Bama offer on the spot. You can’t fault him if he goes them.

    How come no one has proposed the idea that some of the Alabama recruits got in Elam’s ear at the Army game causing him to second guess his decision? Couldn’t that have happened just as likely as Barker’s trying to get in other recruits ear about UK?

    Hey Matt,

    Would it be fair to say a key difference between this years team and the 2012 team was the NBA lockout? Namely the way the 2012 team benefited from being able to practice against the likes of the entire OKC team plus LeBron and Rondo? I’d heard that that was the 2012 teams first reality check that they weren’t what they thought they were and taught them to play as a team rather than for themselves. Something the 2014 team seems to have struggled with early on. Just a thought.

    The University of Louisville president, John Shumaker, and nine of his top athletic officials appealed to the National Collegiate Athletic Association yesterday not to impose the death penalty on the men’s basketball program over recruiting violations.

    At a nearly four-hour closed meeting in Seattle, enforcement investigators for the N.C.A.A. Division I Infractions Committee and university officials discussed, among other things, an assistant coach’s telephone call in 1996 that may have broken the five-year probation the N.C.A.A. imposed two years ago.

    The committee could impose punishment short of the death penalty — a one-year shutdown of the program — or accept Louisville’s self-imposed penalties. A decision is expected in four to six weeks.

    I think we took dramatic steps, painful steps, and whether that is sufficient, the committee will have to make the decision on that, Shumaker said.

    NCAA hears Louisville’s case on recruiting violations

    ‘Death penalty’ decision expected in 4 to 6 weeks

    Click here for more on this story
    Posted: Sunday August 09, 1998 06:01 PM

    SEATTLE (AP) — University of Louisville president John Shumaker and nine of his top athletics officials pleaded with the NCAA Division I Infractions Committee Sunday not to impose a one-year “death penalty” shutdown of men’s basketball over recruiting violations.

    At a nearly four-hour closed meeting, enforcement investigators and university officials discussed, among other things, an assistant coach’s telephone call in 1996 that may have broken the five-year probation imposed by the NCAA two years ago.

    Eight other violations occurred in the women’s volleyball program. Although Louisville agreed with the NCAA on seven of the nine violations, two remained in contention.

    Most of the violations pertained to recruiting efforts or giving athletes and their relatives extra benefits.

    “We had a very good discussion. It was cordial, it was analytical, it was penetrating,” said Shumaker as he left the hotel ballroom where the meeting was held. “It was not highly adversarial at all.”

    But Shumaker and athletic director Tom Jurich refused to speculate on the eight-member committee’s decision, which is expected in four to six weeks.

    A tight-lipped Jurich said, “The credit card. The room rate,” when asked what remained at issue.

    He referred to then-assistant men’s basketball coach Carlton “Scooter” McCray’s phone call to a hotel where Frederick Johnson, the father of player Nate Johnson, was staying.

    Investigators said McCray obtained a substantial discount on the room rate, and left his Diners’ Club card with hotel managers to prevent Johnson from being evicted from his room for failure to pay his bills.

    However, Louisville has contended its internal investigation showed a former assistant manager of the hotel provided the discount on her own, and said the phone call was not made until two weeks after Johnson’s stay began.

    McCray admitted leaving the card but said he never intended to pay the bill himself.

    The Infractions Committee could stop short of the “death penalty” with other punishment or accept Louisville’s self-imposed penalties as sufficient.

    “I think we took dramatic steps, painful steps, and whether that is sufficient, the committee will have to make the decision on that,” Shumaker said.

    Since the current investigation began, the university has transferred McCray to an administrative post. Head volleyball coach Leonard Yelin was suspended for a month without pay.

    An assistant women’s volleyball coach was reprimanded and the volleyball team’s preseason trip to Japan last year was canceled.

    Men’s basketball coach Denny Crum, a 27-year veteran Hall of Fame coach who has led the Cardinals to two national championships, received a reprimand. His contract was renewed in March.

    “I’ve seen no reason to fire him,” Shumaker said Sunday.

    The case, deemed “major” by the NCAA, has produced hundreds of pages of witness testimony during investigations by both Louisville and the NCAA staff.

    Besides the hotel incident, all the other violations cited in this round occurred in the women’s volleyball program.

    Yelin and his staff were cited for providing the student-athletes with rides, lodging, financial aid, help with enrollment forms, and even paying a dentist’s bill. The NCAA investigators said neither Yelin nor the university adequately monitored activities of the volleyball staff.

    Although Louisville agreed the violations occurred, the university contended that it was not responsible for Yelin’s lack of knowledge of the rules. Jurich and Shumaker said that question was still in dispute Sunday.

    Jurich was named athletic director last year to succeed Bill Olsen, who retired. Jurich has said the department wants to comply fully with NCAA regulations.

    The probation was imposed in 1996 for 10 violations — six deemed major and four secondary. They involved an athlete’s use of two cars and improper contacts or phone calls with recruits by assistant coaches.

    At that time, Shumaker said the probation was a “warning signal” to the school.

    The eight-person NCAA committee, headed by Oklahoma law professor David Swank, meets in different cities around the country.

    This is what the caller might have been talking about on the death penalty.

      There are a lot of radio personality commercials like that, I think they
      use technology to slow down or sped up to make it “fit”. In the old days,
      guys could put 30 seconds commercials in the can one after another
      and nail each one without any techie help.

      I feel the opposite. Louisville has been in lousy football conferences for ever. They win enough games against bad competition to make a bowl game and think they are big wigs in the college football landscape. I think Louisville will learn their true position when they have to play Miami, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, etc. every year. When they finish in the middle of the pack a few seasons and get crappy or no bowl game, they might begin to understand.

    Oh, Lee. No. I was a seven year old girl and I knew that Jerry Lawler and Coco B Ware were fake.

    At what point did wrestling become fake? Because that’s how I’m going to categorize when things happen: (BWF) Before Wrestling was Fake and (AWF) After Wrestling was Fake

    We might lose two games in the SEC — possibly Mizzou or Florida. We will NOT lose to any of these other teams who are TERRIBLE. Yeah, we are definitely NOT losing to LSU in Baton Rouge. You do realize Rhode Island just beat them there on Saturday? Also, this Ole Miss team is not the same as last year’s — especially without Murphy Holloway. He was their Mr. Everything in the post and this team is really struggling inside this year without him. There is no way we lose to them this season. I personally guarantee it.

    I asked this last week but no body addressed it! – Why does Pricktino not let his players leave the huddle for individual intro’s in Rupp arena? – is that the only place he does that? – how arrogant! and petty! He did it 2012 too….

    If Bobby has any success at Louisville whatsoever, he’ll be eyeballing an SEC job….

    KSR is dropping the ball if you dont post the Bobby Petrino in a neck brace picture. Over and over again.

      I’m sure we’ll see it again if/when the Petrino talk heats up

    “He’s a new man”. That’s a Card fan willing to do anything to win right there.

    Where’s the media warning Jurich not to hire Petrino???

    I believe BP has changed like I believe Richard Nixon saying I am not a crook or Bill Clinton saying I never had sex with that woman. Thank God it’s only sports.

    Louisville fans have battered woman’s syndrome. “he’s a changed man”, “our times together were so much fun”, “we still love him”

    Matt, you keep saying “that is all Louisvlle fans care about” and my question to you is what else is there to care about? As Kentucky fans are we supposed to care about the team having morals and doing the right thing or WINNING… I for one would like to see a competitive team that wins more than 2 games as opposed to a doormat that has great student-athletes with big hearts!

    I can’t believe that ANY grownass man would sit around and discuss professional wrestling.

    You would not be a fan of Hulk Hogan if you saw his sex tape.
