Election Day’s Tuesday Morning Wakeup

Did you vote yet?

If not, you should go ahead and do that.

Today is Election Day in Kentucky and we should all take part in electing Governor Steve Beshear’s replacement, as well as other officials in our state government.

Governor Beshear has been in office since 2007, but he will soon be replaced by one of three candidates — Matt Bevin, Jack Conway or Drew Curtis — and it’s our responsibility as citizens to select one of the three. (Or a write-in vote for Freddie Maggard.)

I have not yet voted, because I woke up 30 minutes ago, but I will try to sneak away from the computer at some point to do so. You should also make an effort to get out to the nearest booth and punch in your votes on Election Day 2015 — Or don’t. It’s totally up to you.


Last night’s exhibition was a lot of fun.

It was extremely unfair, but a ton of fun for our first look at the 2015-16 Kentucky Wildcats against an outside opponent. Can’t wait to get back there and do it all again Friday night against Kentucky State, and on television.

Jamal Murray is pretty good at the game of basketball.

After the game, Murray denied knowing he was on the verge of a triple-double, but a couple of his teammates said otherwise. John Calipari said he was unaware as well, but knew Murray was rebounding the ball better than he’s done in practice.

Tyler Ulis is the best point guard in America.

With all due respect to Marcus Paige, Kris Dunn, Demetrius Jackson, Melo Trimble and the other great PGs in college basketball this season, Tyler Ulis is the best of the bunch. I wouldn’t take anyone over him.

Matt Jones overheard an assistant coach from Ottawa saying the same thing last night. That’s an unbiased opinion coming from a coach from the state of Kansas, where Fred VanFleet and Frank Mason are on TV all the time. He’d take Ulis over everyone, too.

17 points, 10 assists and zero turnovers last night. I don’t care who the competition is, that’s strong.

Derek Willis isn’t going to the bench without a fight.

I don’t know whose minutes he will steal, but Willis is out to steal minutes this season.

I hope he gets some.

Willie Cauley-Stein leads the NBA in FG percentage.

So what if he’s only played three games?

Karl-Anthony Towns made his first career three-pointer last night.

Towns was also called for a bull**** foul on a jump-ball with 12 seconds left in the game with his team down two. It was really bad. Minnesota got hit with a couple bad calls down the stretch that cost them the game.

We will hear from Shannon Dawson and the offense today.

Dawson and some of his offensive players will be available after practice to talk about bouncing back from a poor showing against Tennessee. They have a lot of questions to answer this week, although talking won’t do them any good; they’ll have to show it against Georgia. Outside of maybe Mikel Horton, everyone on that side of the ball can do better.

A new KSR Football Podcast will be recorded tonight.

Subpackage is joining Freddie, Jared and Nick after several weeks away from the show. Can’t wait to weigh in on last Saturday, next Saturday and the state of the program. Look for the podcast to go live tomorrow afternoon around 1 pm.


KSR radio coming up…

    Any chance we can get a recording or replay of yesterday’s show. The voting segment needs to be heard again. We love Ryan, but come on man, you’ve got to do a little reading before an election.

    I can’t believe that Georgia is a 14 point favorite over our Cats. Georgia hasn’t scored a touchdown since early October. I am asking all real Cat fans to bet a sizable amount of their disability checks on the Cats so we can drive this line down. And speaking of disability checks, I promise they will triple if you elect me to Congress.

    How does Coach Dawson talk about something that doesn’t exist? Let’s start by replacing the O Line with a moat, and some less than predictable play calling.

    Guessing Georgia will score a touchdown this week and offense will be better against the cats defense. QB will look like an ALL AMERICAN..

    “I wouldn’t take anyone over him” Really?

    I’d take Ulis ahead of all the others.

    Watched that Timberwolves game live. Plumlee immediately grabbed KAT’s biceps when the ball was thrown up, and somehow they called a foul on Karl lol. AND they called Wiggins for basket interference twice when it looked like the ball was out of the cylinder both times. Just a poorly officiated game all around
