    Thanks Uncle Matt for the suggestion, I ended up watching about 5 hrs of that show. My wife won’t watch it, but it’s interesting.

    Good game on Saturday.

    Matt, KSR is a great part of my daily experience but your lack of appreciation for and knowledge of Thin Lizzy disturbs me.

    Petrino begged to come to UK!!!

      Petrino is a classless jerk who hired his mistress for a high paying job she was unqualified for. He’s burned bridges everywhere he’s coached. He got himself blacklisted from the SEC for nepotism and lying to his employer. No major program would hire him (except U of L) for a reason. U of L deserves Petrino. U of L and Petrino go together like a landfill and garbage.

      And yet J-Dub they go to a bowl game and win it and the Cats stay home eating nachos on their couches getting fat and lazy. What UK is doing for the football team is a disgrace as much as it would have been to hire Petrino.

    • J-Dub421
      12:37 pm January 4, 2016 Permalink

      Put U of L in the SEC all season long, and let’s see if they go to a bowl game. Even you admit that Petrino is a disgrace.

  5. And we’re back to requiring logins after a few days of not. I’m all for having to log in if will (HOPEFULLY!!!) minimize the fights between several including BBU, CP, and the one with the profane name who will not even be initialized by me.

    Oh, and my Gravatar showed up when logging in was NOT required, but doesn’t show up when it is. Weird. Obviously a user error! 🙂

    • Oh, and great game Saturday night!

      GO CATS!!!

      Well, man up and say my name. Come on. If you’re going to call me out, effing do it. And what’s the common denominator with it all? UK Big Board update. He’s an argumentative bitch. He’s a troll. His sole purpose is to pick cyberfights.

      You’re just mad that I called you out from the start, LDS.

      Way to go, showing that you obviously were to pu$$y to type under your own name when we didn’t have to log in.

      I live in your head, rent free, and it kills you. Thanks for showing up at Tin Roof (the bar, not the hotel lol) the other night. 😉

      Lol. You fat redneck, you don’t have the stones to meet anyone. Ever. As for other names, I use my own. Child molester. You are just mad because I showed you up to be the cowardly, stupid bully that you are.

      Looking at the hours you keep on here, I’m guessing you work second shift at the adult movie place, mopping floors. UKBBU is a chicken shit child molester.

      Haha. Another weak insult. You are the very definition of a troll. Make a real comment on here. Don’t be lazy and snipe someone else’s comment. You won’t, because you’re a cowardly jackass child molesting bitch.

    The only way to get a top coach to UK is to get someone on the rise. Kind of like Utah hiring Urban Meyer from Bowling Green. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to predict a coach’s rise.

    • Sentient Third Eye
      10:44 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      And even then, like with Meyer at Utah, after a few successful years he get’s poached by the big boys. Maybe the best way is to find a coach nearing retirement and convince him to finish his career at your school, ala South Carolina with Holtz and Spurrier. Those two raised USC from Kentucky-level up to competing for division titles.

      You want to get a new coach, how bout that North Dakota St. coach with five national titles in a row on the FCS level? Of course we are stuck with Stoops for another 2 or 3 years and he will be gone by then,

    • UK Big Board Update
      2:36 pm January 4, 2016 Permalink

      ^Yeah, lets go hire an FCS coach!!!

      But we get the OC from the 7th ranked offense in the country, and he’s not good enough. You, sir, are truly an idiot.

    • Long Dong Silver

      You should be an expert on idiots, since you are the perfect example of one.

    Marcus Lee has been my favorite surprise for the Cats this year! I love seeing someone come in and you can see the work they put in to succeed. Most of the players we get these days have worked hard to get their skills to a high level before they arrive and you actually get to see this kid improve from a role player to starter!

      Agreed. Remembering Jorts.

    There has to be a coach out there that can win football games at Kentucky. No team in the East is formidable and we have lost a chance to take advantage of that.

    Shouldn’t the football people be able to find the right person?

    • Cat House
      11:37 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      We’ve got him.

    Why would any Juco or 5th year QB come to UK when they know they won’t be allowed to compete for the starting job. The keys have been handed to Drew Barker. End of story.

    • Laker Cat 18
      11:35 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      I’ve said before and I’ll say again, Barker is a good QB, not a great QB. I’m not even sure he was the best QB in the state as a senior in high school.

    • Laker Cat 18

      Riley Hall at Pulaski is better than him today, right now.

    • J-Dub421
      11:40 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      Stoops has talked some about guys having to “earn it” and that “nothing will be handed to” players. Then he gives Barker the starting job without his having earned it.

    • houndstooth

      Where is Riley Hall going to College?

    • Realme
      11:44 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      Will be interesting to see if Stoops changes his stance on that. I could see them getting another good option and saying they decided they need to play more than one guy and in Cal fashion “it doesn’t matter who starts”.

    • ukjaybrat

      @ realme, the problem with that is if you have two quarterbacks you really have none. Look at how ohio state struggled all year (ok granted as a UK fan if “that” is struggling, give it to me)… the best course of action is to have settled on a quarterback 2-3 weeks before opening day and ride him out unless he is god-awful.

    • Realme
      11:56 am January 4, 2016 Permalink

      I don’t buy into that old adage, Jay. We were beaten multiple times this year by teams that played more than one qb in the game.

    • ukjaybrat
      12:16 pm January 4, 2016 Permalink

      just because other teams did it and beat us doesn’t mean the adage is necessarily untrue. you go back throughout history, and a very large percentage of cases where teams could not decide between multiple starting quarterbacks, they have almost always struggled. it simply is not easy to plug-and-play quarterbacks like it is other positions in other sports.

    I’ve been waiting for the Making A Murderer discussion all week. This is going to be great.

      Probably won’t see it until it comes out on dvd, but it sounds like Serial, in that who knows if the convicted is guilty, but how in the world did a jury see enough evidence to convict?

    Fans crack me up. When Towles was the starter, Drew was the second coming of Joe Namath.The fans got what they wanted. Now that he is the starter he is trash and shouldn’t even have been recruited. Yikes!

    Murder Weapon? Where was she killed? She wasn’t in the house and it seems like a little more complicated than what he was able to pull off or pull off by himself.
