    Who all is getting the 5S today? I’m not sure what the lines are like in Lexington, but in Frankfort, the AT&T store was crazy, but the Sprint store had more workers than customers. It looks like the gold 5S is in hot demand, somebody waiting all night at AT&T and left empty handed when he found out they did not have the gold. Now he’ll get his iPhone in about a month.

  47. Oscar, I SO miss receiving the old TCP, usually on a Thursday or Friday, and immediately opening it to your column first to see what you had to say about my beloved Cats. I read you starting with the last couple Claiborne/Sutton years and read your column until you retired.

    Kentucky women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell has another verbal commitment. This one is from 6-2 center Alexis Jennings of Sparkman (Ala.) High School. She is ranked as the No. 9 post player by ESPN.

    SEC schools Alabama, Georgia and Florida had also offered Jennings, who averaged 22.1 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and 3.2 steals per game last year.

    On Thursday, Bell County junior guard Maci Morris verbally committed to UK.

    Matt, I went to UK and have always been a huge UK fan growing up in Barbourville. Now I live in Milford and am a huge Reds fan. I wear Reds gear all the time and it doesn’t bother me in the least. Having said that if I lived in Loserville I’d never wear red because of all the UL fans there.



  87. Brew Crew
    10:45 am September 20, 2013 Permalink

    St Louis Cardinals fan here. It’s even harder to wear my gear around Lexington because a) it’s red, says Cardinals, and everyone thinks I’m supporting UofL, and b) once they realize it’s St. Louis, they’re usually Reds fans and that’s not easy to deal with either.

    It is time to take back the color red.

    As a Kentucky fan, I like the color. My car is red. I have red ties. And I own one red coca cola t-shirt.

    Now at a UK game, I would never wear red, maroon, etc. In fact I usually have something UK on.

    I am sure Tom Jurich would put a surcharge on air breathed at the YUM Center but the Vile (my new nickname for UofL) doesn’t own the copy right on the color red.

    As such it not an issue to wear the color–save for a game day and even more so at Rupp or Commonwealth.

    As long as UofL doesn’t get a cut of my red polo or whatever, it doesn’t matter.

    Let’s take back the color from the Vile.

    Sad news indeed – I used to work at a Pawn Shop and my wife was always terrified for me and didn’t like the fact I had to carry a gun for work. So eventually I had to move into another field of work

    I feel bad for any victim involved.

    Whitlow is INACCURATE Matt! Can you not see that? Why do you love him so much? He is a runner, not a QB

    People need to stop 2nd guessing the new coaching staff. We don’t have the info the coaching staff has, we don’t have the expertise they have and we don’t have the coaching experience. Stop being old style UK fans and get on-board with the new UK football.

    Would you Neckbeards PLEASE shut up about Towles, The COACHES have chosen the best QB’s to win games. Do we think the coaches are morons? Who see’s them regularly in practice? “We’re talkin’ bout practice” If he can’t beat them out in practice, why would he be better in a game?

    MORONS!

    Matt & Oscar,

    I don’t think you realize what a coup it was to get NBBJ architects to do the redesign of Rupp Arena. They are one of the best architects in the world and they don’t do many arenas/stadiums. The only arenas they have done are the Staples Center, Pauley Pavillion, and Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center in China. These architects will be delicate to the history and will make Rupp Arena the BEST it can be. This project will literally change Lexington and it kind’ve makes me sad to see you all not behind it. When Lexington becomes it’s best self is when UK can become it’s best self. Why is Oscar not behind this I just don’t understand?

    I’m not fully on board with Stoops and Brown because they lost to WKU, and if they had put Smith in to start the 2nd half, THEY WOULD HAVE WON!

    Whitlow is not a QB!!!

    If Towles want to get out on the field, all he has to do is outperform the two guys in front of him on the depth chart. Its one helluva coincidence that 2 coaching staffs are too blind to see that he’s better than Smith and Whitlow.

    Next thing James is going to say is that he has a 48-inch vertical. He will want to demonstrate it by having leaping contest against D.J. Stephens, who set the NBA combine record of 46 inches.

    In the spirit of 4.1 James’ brother being a wrestler, I have a feeling that James’ 4.1 40 was similar to Yokozuna being 800 pounds.

    James is the real-life Uncle Rico.
    “If I could go back in time, I’d take state in the 100 meter. How much you wanna make a bet I can run faster than that guy, Insane Bolt.”

    Is James 4.3 the result of headphones knocking him back from 4.1? Further, Boris the Clown Catcher never appeared prior to the 198 Pool Tournament winning 43 year old that runs a 4.3 40, coincidence???????? this is getting creepy. Just Sayin’……….

    Disagree with Oscar on Louisville game. Louisville is obviously all in on football and and their rise provides for accountability in Kentucky’s program. Lots of folks were becoming ok with losing to SEC upper teams but we will not tolerate being being dominated by Louisville. They have done to KY football what Cal did to Pitino.
