    I hated to see John Wall, making it rain, the other day. Mark Cuban says that is dumb stuff that people with real money don’t do. Matt I really hope we hear Slash Slash on the game! You have to call him on the show! I heard Mike DeCourcy on The Leach Report… I’m disappointed Tom didn’t ask him about college basketball using a ‘Shirts vs Skins’ format…

    The second caller (Norm) is classic. He says WKU is NOT a directional school, then the host deconstructs his answer by saying they ARE by definition…..his first immediate response is “Yeah, but…..”

    So he in essence says something, defends it, is proven wrong, acknowledges it by saying “yeah” then moves on.

    PLEASE cut that and use that as a sound drop………

    Do it for me Matt.

    I truly believe that this is the reason Rupp didn’t want to play instate schools. If you don’t play them then you can be happy for their successes. Also I wouldn’t be surprised if this bigblue guy was refused admission to UK and because of that he hates the school.

    If we were in the Big East Conference during Andre Woodson’s senior year we would of had a real shot at winning the “sugar free bowl.” Your conference DOES matter. Are we a great football program as of now, of course not, but conference and strength of schedule play a major role in having a truly successful program.

    I attended WKU in the late 90’s and I remember passing my school ID to multiple friends who were visiting to get into the game for free. We would show the ID and pass it back to the next person in line. So, beating UK was the biggest accomplishment in WKU football history so that is why they are crowing.

    Regarding Miley – I don’t understand the uproar because what she did on stage was exactly what she did in her music video for that song that’s been out for months. In the end, Miley did the “right” thing for her career because I guarantee her album sales and ticket sales are skyrocketing due to all of this publicity.

    Now if what she did was moral or disgusting is a whole other subject. But basically she’s selling sex and people are buying it. It’s a great short term solution to stand out from the group.

    WKU has improved a lot in academics (excluding the community college we operate) and with the quality of the Honors College, Gatton Academy, and some of our academic programs we’re realizing that we’re more than just a directional school and that is extremely beneficial for our students and alumni. Some of our issues with UK seems to be a perception, which tends to be true, that UK attempts to harm WKU in academics and tries to keep our school from expanding academic programs and improving our school in all areas including sports.

    Matt,

    You and Vanetti both know very little about WKU. I am a WKU alum.

    WKU does have strictly WKU fans, but there are very few. Most of those being from Bowling Green or Tennessee. The rest fall into UK or UofL fans.

    There is also a division of fans who HATE Petrino. WKU athletics rarely put news about Petrino on Facebook because he gets trashed!

    Please stop generalizing WKU fans so badly. I enjoyed last year’s win and would be pulling for WKU if Petrino was not there. This year, I want to see Petrino get trounced.

    Also, WKU is not a “little” mid-major. “Little” mid-majors do not have Division 1 teams and their undergrad enrollment is about to surpass UofL’s.

    You’re not endearing yourself to Western Fan at all today. The whole “know your place and shut up” argument doesn’t work in this century. The best thing to do is, be a good sport and take care of business next time. If UK would simply win when they play people they look down on, they wouldn’t have to deal with uppity red wearing people thinking they’re as good as you.

    Don’t you think BluPrint looks exactly like a small Boogie? I loved his blue and white hair. The quality of the top 10 this year has been absolutely outstanding and any of the finalists will be very worthy winners.

    Why would Louisville fans talk trash about teams UK lost to if they aren’t willing to play them? WKU would have loved a shot at UofL last year or this year, and since they wouldn’t play us, they’ll get to feast on weak sauce schedules both years. Granted they almost lost to Southern Miss and FIU last year, so WKU probably would have been too much for them.

    They had a story about George Raveling owning that speech on the CBS Sunday Morning program. the most famous part of the speech was ad-libbed and not written down. the Speech was supposed to be about five minutes and ende up being about 15 or so.

    11:27 am August 28, 2013 Permalink

    CBS Sunday Morning did a story a couple of weeks ago about Coach Raveling having the original copy of the speech. The remarkable thing about the copy that Coach Raveling has is that the “I have a dream…” part of the speech isn’t actually on the copy. It was adlibbed. There is only an asterisk marking where he was going to add that in. Incredible piece of history!

He is my all-time favorite male dancer on the show, though Twitch is a very, very close second. How Alex has come back from both his right and left torn achilles tendons is amazing. Melanie Moore is my favorite all-time female, though Alison Holker and Kathryn McCormick are very close behind her.
