Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Dick Vitale on KSR: “Kentucky will be a lock to be in contention for the title.”

Dick Vitale took a break from Instagramming photos with random strangers at The Broken Egg or of his family playing tennis to join Matt Jones on Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning. Vitale was on to discuss his charitable work with the V Foundation and next year’s Kentucky Wildcats.

Vitale will host his annual gala in Sarasota this weekend where he will follow through with his promise to raise $250,000 in Lacey Holsworth’s memory. He also had good things to say about our basketball team, assuring us the Cats are in position for a Final Four run once again.

He said UK isn’t a lock to win it all in 2014-15 because anything can happen in a one-game scenario, but “Kentucky will be a lock to be in contention for the title.”

We’ll have the whole interview on the site a little later today.

    Sure is funny how so called writers on here latch on to a sportscaster when they praising UK but bash them when they have negative things to say about UK. This comment is somehow newsworthy? It does not mean a darn thing. Every team in college basketball is in contention for the title at this point.

      Your first point is correct. Your last sentence is pure fiction.

    “Kentucky will be a lock to be in contention for the title.” What the hell does that even mean? Think about it.

      Right now it means that they are absolutely a member in good standing of NCAA’s Division 1. In March, it will mean something slightly different. It will mean that they are one of the 68 teams selected for the tournament.
