    Once again, what a great game! Cayts! Glad to see you back on Twitter.

    Haven’t heard from Uncle Garry lately… what does he think of the football game this weekend and the basketball cayts?

      Matt said she looked like Rachel Maddow in a tweet complaining about something she said about that Cats. It upset her and they talked it out (he apologized), and some other media person spent several hours attacking him and calling him a bigot (unfairly).

      I don’t get it, never heard of her, just googled her … she looks like a business woman … she’s not fat or ugly or anything … she’s tall and has a short haircut … anyway, still don’t get it

      I think the political correctness police assumed he was saying she looked like a lesbian, and hypocritically took offense as if looking like a lesbian is an insult. Typical case of internet overreaction.



    • JVice
      10:55 am November 24, 2014 Permalink

      The apology wasn’t for saying who she looked like. There’s some subtext there that most people seem to be oblivious to.



    • BigBlueBoom
      11:32 am November 24, 2014 Permalink

      Realme – I don’t think they took “looking like a lesbian as an insult” the way you are saying it. What does a lesbian look like? All short-haired women are lesbians? Do you have to dress a certain way to look like a lesbian? It’s stereotypes like those that people get offended about. One can be a lesbian and look feminine. One can look feminine and not be a lesbian.



    • Realme

      BBB, you’re right about that, but it’s still the assumption that Matt was stereotyping that set them off.

    Somebody has to throw it out there since matt is no longer allowed to talk about women but the 7 ft tall blonde Russian on the women’s team is attractive for being 7 ft tall.

    I can get to the KSR site just fine from my laptop, but I get a “400 Bad request” saying “Request Header or Cookie Too Large” whenever I try to access it from my Galaxy S5. First of all, I didn’t think there was any such thing as a cookie being too large, and secondly, do any of you cyber geeks know what is causing this? Is anyone else having trouble getting to KSR via their smart device?



    • CATandMONKEY

      I have to clear the cookies on my Note 3 when that message comes up. Seems to fix things but KSR is the only site that gives me this error message. I only started receiving the message after the last ” upgrade ” to KSR.

    I thought it was pretty neat having Cal mic’ed up for that game. I’m probably not alone in saying that I would pay extra to have that every game – sort of like some of the NASCAR fans listening in the the conversations of the crew chiefs of their favorite drivers.

      Agreed! It adds a bit of flavor to the blowout games when it’s hard watching a “not so competitive” game.

    I SO wish Sam Malone had scored on that run out. His hair reminds me of the namesake of my former screen name, Chris Gettelfinger (except his was red with no headband). Also, Chris was the first UK player I remember that was a victory cigar and all the fans yelled “SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!” every time he touched the ball.

    C-A-T-S!!!

    Matt,

    I haven’t made it to a game yet. With UK dropping the price of single game tickets for games like Montana St., how does the upper arena look?

    Okay UK football fans. It’s time to show some big love for the team for the UL game!!! We need to do it for the seniors like Bud for sticking with UK all this time, and for Z who could have gone to a better program after JC but chose the CATS!!! He had offers from FSU, Texas, A & M, and more.

    Let’s support them as much as we can so the seniors can go to a bowl game in their last year!!!

    GO CATS!!! BEAT LOUISVILLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    they should have some type of “Where’s your blue?” cam that points out people not wearing UK colors so the fans in the arena can boo them.

    Jared’s comments are sexist! I hated to tell him this but in the United States women are not property.
    This woman made a poor choice in wearing orange. But the comments being made on air also show lack of thought.

    UK/U of L is a rivalry game. Its not going away, and I don’t want it to. Soon we will start beating them in football, so let’s not whine just because they’re better than we are right now.

    I find it horrifying that there is a small portion of our fan base that still thinks we should have hired Bobby Petrino. I don’t like having that slimeball in my State, and definitely don’t want him at my school.



    • cats paw
      11:57 am November 24, 2014 Permalink

      But yet a majority of fans respect Bruce Pearl and even Rick Pitino? I think the only difference is that Petrino is on the winning end at the moment and that makes it hard to swallow.



    • sammydog
      12:32 pm November 24, 2014 Permalink

      Bruce and Rick have redeeming qualities that soften their ethical lapses. Petrino has none. Not even Jurich likes him. Pitino can’t stand him. He rubs people the wrong way both figuratively and literally. He has longstanding patterns of behavior that causes trouble. Why deal with that when you don’t have to. There are a lot of good coaches to choose from that don’t have his baggage.

      James Marsden was the other actor. He and Chris Pine are both pretty big.

      Well, they said it was the guy who played Captain Kirk. That was Chris Pine. Maybe they just got em confused. They do look somewhat alike, although not super close.



    • J-Dub421
      11:58 am November 24, 2014 Permalink

      Pine is the new Captain Kirk, also the new Jack Ryan. Those are both pretty big franchises. Marsden is in the X-Men movies (Cyclops), and has been in a bunch of other movies.

    Actually the caller is wrong…. UK is currently ranked 23rd in recruiting…Louisville is 25th

    In the rankings only your top 20 committments count. UK is gonna get Damien Harris, a guy worth almost 300 pts That one guy vaults UK to near a top 15 class. UofL already has 21, we have 17.

    Ultimately UK will wind up top 20ish, Louisville will end up top 35ish.
