Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Friday’s Top 10: Maybe next year, Bobby

“We deserve to be in,” they said.

“We would give Alabama a game,” they said.


1.) Like you and me, Louisville will be watching the College Football Playoff from the couch.

We’ll lead off with the best news from Thursday: Louisville not only lost to Houston; it got murdered by Houston. The unranked Cougars took a 31-point lead into halftime and held on in the second, limiting Lamar Jackson’s offense to only 10 points in the entire game. Buh bye, playoff hopes.

Also, #BlueGotIn


2.) Quade Green has signed his Letter of Intent.

Either Syracuse or Kentucky already has Green’s LOI, so both schools already know if they won the Green sweepstakes or not. Adam Zagoria confirmed earlier reports that Green signed his letter on Wednesday and mailed it into the school before the early signing period deadline. However, unless one of the coaching staffs leaks the news (which is more likely on the losing end in these cases), we won’t know the decision until Green announces it Friday evening.

3.) Kentucky is giving up 46 points to Austin Peay out in Las Vegas.

Need further proof that Kentucky should get its coveted sixth win tomorrow, the Cats are currently favored by 46 points against Austin Peay. I don’t know a lot about point spreads in years past, but I can’t imagine there’s been one that high in a Kentucky football game, at least not in favor of Kentucky.

4.) Mark Stoops didn’t have a ton of stuff to say in his final press conference of the week.

No big updates out of Thursday’s practice, but you here’s the clip of Stoops’ comments anyway:

5.) We’ll hear from Coach Cal Kenny Payne and some of his players later this afternoon.

John Calipari is passing this week’s press conference duties off to Kenny Payne for the day. Coach Payne and a couple of the players will be available this afternoon to reflect on the trip to New York and to look ahead to Sunday’s game against Duquesne. Check out Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com around 2:00ish for the live stream of that.

6.) Karl-Anthony Towns went right around Joel Embiid for the nasty jam.

If you missed it yesterday, we shared ESPN’s very nice feature on Towns and how he’s changed the center position in the NBA. Check it out.

7.) DeMarcus Cousins took 150 kids to see the new Disney movie last night.

DeMarcus Cousins, the bad guy, took 150 young kids from the Sacramento Boys & Girls Club to see Moana, the new movie from Disney last night. But he’s the bad guy, right? What a bad guy.

See video from Boogie’s night with the kids here.

8.) The SEC is not good at basketball.

Yesterday we saw Mississippi State lose by 25 to Central Florida, Furman keep it within six against Georgia, and St. Bonaventure play Florida tight. Missouri gave 11th-ranked Xavier a pretty good game, then blew it with a foul 30 feet from the basket with a three-tenths of a second on the clock. Auburn did beat Eastern Kentucky, but the early season has not been all that impressive for our SEC brethren.

9.) This was all of us last night…

10.) KSR is at Jack Burford Chevy in Richmond today.

Matt and Ryan are giving away basketball and football tickets, so get on out there and see them for today’s two-hour remote broadcast from Jack Burford.

    5) If we go to another final four, Kenny Payne is GONE. he’s going to get a HC job somewhere

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on L. Jackson’s heisman hopes moving forward?

      if michigan was still undefeated, i would say peppers doesn’t really have the eye popping stats at any one position but has done enough to steal it. but since they lost to iowa, it’s still jackson’s to lose. but if we come away with a win in louisville next week, the Heisman committee is going to have to find someone else. kid can’t have 3 L’s on the schedule AND get the Heisman. not gonna happen.

      Paul Horning won it at ND and they had a bad record that year.

    Sacked 11 times, intentional grounding for a safety, fumbled, threw the ball out of bounds more than he completed passes. QB of a team that got curb stomped by an unranked opponent. With a performance like that, and should he win the Heisman, he will have snatched it from someone deserving. He will not be getting a whole Lotta love from those who vote.
    He has not led them to an undefeated or even a one loss season.

    So what your sayin is:

    Louisville, a top 5 team looking to make a statement for the CFP, suffered an embarrassing loss to a decent American Athletic team.

    Louisville now has 8 days (opposed to the normal 6) to prepare for a mediocre SEC team that must beat a winless Austin Peay to be bowl eligible.

      The point is delusional UofL fans have been dreaming that they would beat Alabama in the playoffs. So yeah, I know UK is a mediocre SEC team, but at least we don’t pout about not being in the top 4 of the playoff rankings and then go out and prove…..nothing.

      This is true, we have never pouted about not being in the top 4 of the CFP rankings, you got me there.

      We have, however, been so proud of 2nd place in the SEC East and then gone out and proven… nothing.

      Houston would have beat Clemson last night.
      People are talking about the SEC being down, I think the ACC is way down. For a team, that many in the media believe to be playing the best football in the ACC, to go out and get curb stomped, by a non rated, non power five team, pretty much tells you a lot about Louisville and the conference they play in.
      Great teams do not let games, like Louisville had last night, happen.
      The only chance Louisville has now, is if teams rated 4-14 (or whatever the rating is of the team in front of Louisville) get curb stomped by a non ranked team, in a non power conference.
      Perhaps it may indeed be next year. They can start talking about that now, since this year just took a dump in the front lawn.

    Just to play Devil’s (Cardinal’s) advocate here: I think Jackson still deserves to be in NYC for the Heisman ceremonies and you make a legitimate argument he deserves it.

    Last year without Lamar Jackson under center Louisville was a 7-win team in the regular season on a weak schedule, several of those wins were close against bad opponents, and they lost to every good team they played. They only won their bowl game after the first two QBs on A&M’s roster transferred, and they still only squeaked by in that one.

    This year, with Lamar Jackson under center they’re probably a top 10 team at the end of the season and one of the most dynamic offenses in the FBS. His O-line did him exactly zero favors last night (#74 – hang up your cleats, you’re done here), and his best receiver (Quick) had the worst game of his career. Jackson can’t be held responsible for 100% of the problems last night.

    Regulars in the KSR comments probably already know how much I relished watching Louisville get dismantled last night, but Jackson himself is easily one of the top 5 best playmakers and arguably the MVP in college football this year.

    The Freshman QB is undefeated at Alabama. They play a tough schedule too? Right?
    I get that Jackson is a great player and should be in the conversation, but this was an unranked team that had him make bad plays all night. Best players find a way. He did not. If he had a bad game like this early in the year, and not now, ok. This late in the season, not so much.

    Houston match UL speed for speed last night. O-line whiffed, fumbles, penalties – don’t fault the QB. Bama’s qb is undefeated because he plays for Alabama.

      Alabama is also undefeated, because he plays for Alabama.

    Bama’s only QB currently playing QB in the NFL is the back up to Andy Dalton – nuff said!

    College versus pro. How many Heisman qbs been a bust in the NFL? 3x More than those that made it.
    That is enough said.
