      You can watch IU get slaughtered by Ohio State as soon as tomorrow night. I’ll probably watch Tulsa vs Oklahoma State, might be interesting.

    I got new glasses that have Ky blue in them a couple weeks ago. Hoping they will be my lucky glasses. Will know more after Saturday.

      I’d say all my lenses are blue tinted in spirit, but this is the first time I’ve found it in an actual frame. Front parts are blue, and ear pieces are yellow, which I believe was also once part of our colors.

    Will there be a pregame show in Hattiesburg? Also is there any word on a catwalk?

    Love the picture of the old convertible for the show thread. I love old ragtops like that! But why are they driving on the wrong side of the road? Are they on the way home from the Dew Drop Inn?

      What is that, a ’63 Chevy? Doesn’t look like Mississippi, either.
      I had a ’63 Corvette convertible for years; lotta fun, but it started $500ing me to death.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:17 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      Not a chevy. My best guess is that it is an early-sixties Mercury Monterey. You really wouldn’t want to know what that Vette would be worth today. 😉

      Yep, I should have parked it in the front yard, and just watched it rust…oops, it wouldn’t rust, ha ha.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:34 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      rg, you would be surprised. Have seen many Vette’s rotted to the ground. Body is fiberglass, but it has a steel frame that rots and also steel in the windshield frame.

      A 63 convertible would be worth a pretty penny, depending on condition and options, but the hardtops are actually the ones that bring the big money for that year. That is because 63 was the one and only year for the famous “split window” design – which was abandoned for lack of rear visibility. Saw a very dilapidated version for sale in the swap meet of the Street Rod Nationals – asking price – $75000. :O

    Any more info on how to watch the game Saturday? I am probably going to reinstate my DTV sports package, but I have heard that it might not be carried on any of those stations. Thought I heard someone saying on KSR the other day that you can get it on Hulu. Can someone verify / elaborate?

    • J-Dub421

      Looks like it’s on CBS Sports. I would think most major providers would carry it.

      i dropped sling and picked up Youtube TV which is brand new and even more brand newier in louisville. and it has CBS Sports Network.

      Youtube TV is getting a lot of flack particularly because it is only offered in certain cities. and it doesn’t have the selection of channels that others have (it’s missing turner broadcasting and whatever HGTV and Food Network are on)

      BUT it has cbs, nbc, fox, sec network, cbs sports network, abc/espn/disney
      and just about anythign else that has sports on it. so for a cable-cutters worst nightmare beign FOMO on sports, it is a dream come true. Plus it’s only $35/month.

      I am in heaven right now. I highly recommend it to anybody in Louisville or a city that offers it.

      I’m not making the Switch until next Spring, but will choose one of the live tv streaming services, add netflix, and antenna for networks (unless I go with Youtube, apparently). Anyone know of a machine I could buy separately that could dvr the Sling/Hulu and the antenna channels?

    • ukjaybrat
      11:17 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      sling offers cloud dvr for $5/month
      youtube tv offers cloud dvr for free
      not sure about hulu

    • Realme
      11:21 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      I’ve only really looked at Sling so far, but it didn’t have all the networks, so I’m hoping to find a machine that can record antenna too. But I don’t need to figure it out any time soon. Speaking of all this, DTV is really insane to be still charging massive amounts of money for something we can all get much cheaper. I use Netflix more than I do DTV now, and their OnDemand & App, etc. are a joke compared to what Amazon Prime & Netflix provide.

      I am going to have to look into the YouTube TV, especially the DVR option, as I make a lot of use of the DVR. Is it a real-time DVR that you can use to pause live TV and skip commercials? I really have to ditch my satellite TV – $130/month is adding up.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:54 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      jay, have you had any performance issues with YouTube TV? I guess it all boils down to your connection speed. I would have to upgrade my service most likely to support the higher bandwidth for a streaming service.

    • J-Dub421
      11:57 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      I’m paying $180 per month for Spectrum cable, and that’s just TV and internet. We don’t even have any premium channels!

      Sorry i got busy i’ll try to remember to bring this back up tomorrow for those that didn’t see this.

      I haven’t had any issues with streaming Youtube TV yet. It’s been very fluid. But I also have a step up in internet (so not the basic package)

      You can also watch TV in your browser at any computer and their are apps for phones and tablets

      I have NOT yet played with live streaming/dvr-ing.
      I KNOW you can DVR just about everything, including movies and it will stay in your Library for 9 months
      I THINK you can fast forward and rewind live TV but i havent tried it.
      A great part is you select favorite shows and it will start populating your library with all of the shows that air on tv recently so you will have a lot of shows to watch right off the bat. it’s really neat.

      My biggest problem is i have two rokus and there is no Youtube TV app for the roku (hopefully this is a “yet”)

      So you will need a chromecast to push video to a TV (I have several so this is not an issue for me but may be for others. You CAN login to most apps using your youtube tv credentials. so on both rokus i have signed into the espn, fox, and disney apps so i can still use those. but it would be nice to just have a youtube tv app so i dont have to switch between apps (and also login to all of those apps).

      Right now I pay $35 for internet (i got a deal o nthat, should cost more)
      and $35 for youtube Red.
      I dont have a netflix account or anything
      So that’s $70 for all of my tv/internet needs

      J-Dub, those cable and satellite companies have a way of reeling you in with an attractive promotion. After the promotion period is up, they gouge you mercilessly. I have found that you just have to keep rotating around to them and then ditch them when the contract is up. But these streaming services are becoming intriguing.

    I really don’t care what other coaches think of John Higgins. Maybe they’ve all had better experiences. All I know is Higgins has been terrible and consistently screwed over UK several times now. I’m talking inexcusable missed calls that smack of bias, and always against us.

  9. runningunnin.454

    Higgins is awful; ticky-tack touch fouls will ruin the game. And other teams, I think WVA, have had problems with him. Don’t want to see him again, especially in the tournament.

    • J-Dub421
      11:02 am August 30, 2017 Permalink

      Higgins stands there and watches our players about get their heads taken off, and won’t make the call. He also missed the blatant shot clock violation against Wisconsin in 2015 even though he was looking right at it. Then he calls piddly little touch fouls on us. It’s total BS.

      Something about his being a “least likable player” off the court; and, his pro career has gone nowhere.
      I think maybe someday, in 10 years or so, people will stop bashing him.

      Matt keeps alluding to some kind of off court issues with Briscoe, but won’t say what. At the same time, I’ve never heard of Briscoe getting into trouble off court, and to the best of my knowledge he went to class, etc.

      Be interesting to see how he does with the new “leave the refs alone” rules, even when they totally ignore the play clock expiring or otherwise blow a call.

    • J-Dub421

      The odds of Stoops getting flagged for being on the field angrily yelling at a ref are high.

    Thon Maker may have been drafted, but will he get that second contract? I looked it up and he averaged 4 points and two rebounds per game last year. Not exactly stellar production from a lottery pick.
