    Our D-line is our weak link. Why knock so much on our secondary?

    Over at Saturdaydownsouth.com, the predictions for this weekends games note (seriously) that the Vandy QB is expected to start despite having a patch over one eye. Haha

      Our weak link is the coach. But I agree with your point

      I think he was trying to reply to Laker Cat with that one, but CD is gonna CD.

      Thank you running. I am sending all comments to Billy first to proofread.

      That’s what I figured. We all do that every once in a while.

      I probably should have picked up on that, but work is trying to distract me from the important task of KSR. 🙂

    Cant believe you all listen to Seth Greenberg…had a horrible coaching career…but you all eat the s^&% up. Like he has a good eye for playing abilities? Lmao look at Va Tech

      Now if you want to bash Dan Dakich, fire away.

      Lots of guys have a good eye for playing ability, but wouldn’t be great coaches. Totally different skillsets, although the great coaches also have a good eye for talent, or have assistants that do.

    I hope what we’re hearing is right about Derek. I saw an interview this week where they asked him about the incident this summer, and he described it as something unfortunate that happened to him. Took no responsibility. But that was probably an embargoed interview from months ago, so he may have matured since.



    • RealCatsFan

      I have been waiting for Derek to mature since he arrived at UK. Love the kid, and it’s great when he is hitting 3’s, but this is the year where he has to prove to everyone (especially the pro scouts) that he has grown into a mature adult, and not just an overgrown teen-ager. I really want him to succeed, not only because he is a UK player, but also because he is a product of the state and from the Louisville area.

      I agree. He has the talent to play at the next level, and I want to see him show everyone he is ready for that. Plus our team will be way better if he plays up to his potential.

      I would love for Derek to play up to his potential. He just needs to put in the work on a consistent basis. Kevin Durant’s motto (from a coach and mentor of his) is, “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.” He isn’t wrong.

    Where is everybody? Matt’s kumbaya is sinking. Cume?…???

    Only one person could win at VA TECH and that’s CAL, so Greenberg is ok.

    Joey Couch, ALL -SEC NG, would be a great cohost. He played 1987-1991 or1992 and is still in the area. He was on the pregame show a few years back and was GOLD!

    Kentucky mountain basketball IS legendary; many wonderful stories.
    An opposing coach once told King Kelly Coleman of Wayland that they were going to hold him to 25 points.
    Coleman replied, “Which quarter”.

    Ryan should agree and then give Matt’s number.

    I actually thought he was telling Rand he was looking good for a minute there.

      Me too, and he was complementing Rand on his curly locks. 😀

    I think Matt got mad for no reason, Ryan should be pissed they didn’t mute his number anyways

    Steph Curry is a better player than his father Dell Curry was.

    Ryan and Rand Paul have one thing in common….they’re going to be changing their phone numbers very soon.

    Suddenly the image of Ryan screaming like a little girl and running from a clown pops into my head.

    Pretty sure Matt just displayed a “girly scream” when he was mad at Ryan.

    Heard a story about some team playing Wayland, player comes over, coach I think King Kelly is drinking. Coach says, well, find out what he’s drinking and get you some.

      Adolph Rupp was famous for the 3 on 1 fast break…..Coleman was famous for the 1 on 3 break.
      Fortunate to see him play for Kentucky Wesleyan in the Owensboro Sportscenter.
      There would be 6000 fans in the 5000 seat arena; they allowed smoking back then, and the smoke would rise to the ceiling, and you could barely make out the scoreboard. The atmosphere was electric.

    Is it really true that the Vandy QB grew up in a cave and actually has no eyes? Wow.



    • J-Dub421

      Yes, he uses echolocation to find his receivers.

      J-Dub FTW!

      I am picturing a young Luke Skywalker, blast shield down on helmet, extending his feelings to joust with the fencing drone.

      Insert football terminology for appropriate analogy.
