    No NBA games tonight, but we do have the Jeopardy Battle of the Decades Championship. I’m not sure who wins between Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, but after going all in and missing last night, I’m rooting for Roger Craig.

      How ’bout we ask Dukie V who’s bandwagon he’s going to try to jump on when Duke or UNC falls? It’s funny he’s all about BBN/UK when we’re winning and wants nothing to do with us when we’re having problems, circa late Tubby and Clyde. I think that is a fair question.

    Matt, I was driving through Lexington a few weeks ago and someone almost rear-ended me. I was stopped at a red light and in my rear-view mirror I saw this guy in the distance flooring it until he stopped at the very last second, inches from my rear. I turn around, and who was this guy? None other than RYAN LEMOND!

    First of all, I am in no way condemning KSR. I absolutely love the site and read it every day. I have no problems at all about what is posted and all of it is hilarious to me. With that being said, what the middle finger resembles IS vulgar. So to argue that KSR is not vulgar in that post is not thinking about what the meaning of the middle finger really is.

    With that being said, keep doing what you guys are doing. I love it.

    Back in 1982 in the back of a 7th grade school bus I was challenged to either ‘Flip off the car behind us or I didn’t really like Theresa R.’. I flipped off the car!

    Back in 1976 in 1st grade, I asked the 6th graders if I could sit in the back of the bus. I could but first I had to ask the bus driver for a bl$w j$b. I did but then got in trouble and had to sit in the front of the bus as punishment.

    People are clueless.

      Gotcha. Not good for Gordon, but he’s an above the rim player so he can make up for it. I just remember hearing that Randle was towards the bottom of players his height. Still, that stuff is overrated. If they can play, they can play.

OF COURSE some slack-jawed yokel will get their Jesus-is-my-homeboy panties in a wad over anything even remotely “offensive.” Maybe time to close the comment section permanently with exception of the show thread and live blogs.

    Please explain why UK “can’t” go to murray one time. The arena in murray holds 800 less people than cameron indoor stadium and would be a sell out, probably a UK home game, and would be HUGE for that area. UK has played in ballroom’s transferred into courts that held about 70 people. We are talking about an EXHIBITION game here. If you say UK wants to play the best of the instate schools you are talking about murray. Please don’t say its bc of the money.



    • Chad
      10:39 am May 16, 2014 Permalink

      UK vs. Murray State sounds very exciting and will really prepare the team for post-season play. I’m sure ESPN or CBS will jump all over that game.



    • Delk for 3
      10:43 am May 16, 2014 Permalink

      UK wouldn’t go play at Murray St. because it’s a bad business decision. UK gains nothing out of it.



    • ukjonny9
      10:44 am May 16, 2014 Permalink

      Number one, it wouldn’t be an exhibition game, it would be a regular season game just like Louisville. Number two, when they played in that ballroom, it was a tournament and UK made some money off of it. They would get zero from a game at Murray.

      Please have the facts before you post.



    • Out-Of-Office

      You’re right chad. The Transy game and the 0 players they have on scholarship is where the team learned how to mesh and got it clicking.

      I understand the business aspect (which i am not worried about UK’s money situation) but if you are telling me you would rather watch UK play south east mississippi mud dogs in the first round of one of those season opening tourneys than play Murray we are just not going to agree what is best for basketball and the state.

    Anyone who can count knows that it isn’t time to compare lebron to jordan… YET.

    There may come a time for the discussion – the time isn’t even close as of yet.

    He isn’t even close in any category. He has many years to go before the discussion even starts up. Also, he will always have trouble in the comparison because Jordan didn’t run to find other superstars to help him win one. Jordan waited for the team to build around him.

    In 2003, Landham ran in the Republican Party primary election for the post of Governor of Kentucky, hoping to repeat the success of his Predator castmates Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He based his candidacy on opposition to an amendment which endorsed the Kentucky Family Court, saying his bad experiences at the hands of the family court had convinced him that it was run for the benefit of lawyers rather than families or children. He was unsuccessful in gaining the party’s nomination. He ran briefly as an independent candidate, but withdrew on June 18, and endorsed the Republican slate.

    Sonny Landham was Billie Bear in 48 Hours with Eddie Murphy and the Indian “Tracker” for Arnold in Predator.
    He was a candidate in 2003.

    There is a group that is bringing pro hockey back to Lexington. It has been offered to the mayor’s office that this is a partnership between the citizens and an investment group where citizens buy membership and own some of the team, similar to the Green Bay Packers. This has been offered to the mayor’s office to be included with the Rupp deal. This would mean that fans get a certificate for Rupp, and a voting right with the hockey team. Seems like a better deal to me.

    Jerry the king wasn’t athletic or a physical freak. All he did was pull a stupid strap down.

    I’m sad that wasn’t Rod Rhodes, I’ve always wanted to hear what Pitino said to him when he cut him loose.

    I’ve only been able to listen a few times this morning and the topics covered the bird, UK wrestlers and the guy that looks like the prosecutor from Batman. Summer shows are the best and the topics are always entertaining. 🙂

    Matt, if you watch the video he says it after saying “is that the best you can come up with” and he mutters it. It sounds like hes just getting tired of the nonsense. We joke about Calipari telling the critics to kiss his ass all the time. Whats good for the goose

    2 Rules for naming after players:

    1) They can’t be current players
    2) They can’t be twins. Something just odd about naming after twins, more than just a single player.

    I mean, I don’t think it’s BIZARRE, but I’m not sure we are the best judge of how weird it is, because we’re involved in the weird world of obsessing about college basketball. To the rest of the world that would be weird, I am almost positive.

    It’s only weird if you go around telling people they were named after UK players. If you don’t the Andrew and Aaron are fine names

    Weird. No people, please do not do this. You shouldn’t name your kids based off of basketball players, or any other hot pop culture reference. They will have this name for the rest of their life, make it their own.

      The names are so common that I’m not sure it qualifies for that reaction. I was named after Kyle Macy and it’s never been an issue for me. I was always proud of it.

      11:51 am May 16, 2014 Permalink

      If they like the name Andrew and Aaron, that’s one thing. But they shouldn’t name them strictly because of the basketball players. How do you think the people named after Richie feel right about now?

    The Rod Rhodes caller didn’t sound to much like him. I did send Rod a message though to see if that was really him, but I’ve not got a response yet.

    My wife and I named our first son Mason and we have another son on the way and she likes the name Miles. I would be OK with it but I don’t want people thinking they are named after Duke players Mason and Miles Plumlee.

    I suggest spending a lot of time researching names and finding a somewhat unique name that you really like. You only have one shot at naming them. Do it right.

    Just listened on podcast about the Twins. I think it is awesome to name the twins Aaron and Andrew. Those are common names. It is not like he wanted to name the kids Dakari and Julius.

    I was born in 1978 (30 days after the title game) and my name is Kyle. I’m having a child in 3 months and his middle name is probably going to be Harrison. We like that name before and it is also a tip of the hat to Kentucky and to keep the tradition alive of the name being based off a UK player too.
