    Bowen to USC…I love Frank Martin and he has nothing to lose, but it seems to be a very large amount of baggage. To be fair, I think that is a risk a school like USC should take.

      Not clear why the NCAA would allow him to play anywhere. Is he just going there to lurk until it’s time to not be drafted?

      Disappointed in USC…if they let Bowen play, then the Kanter saga becomes even more ridiculous.



    • J-Dub421
      10:29 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      Bowen has enrolled at USC, but I highly doubt he’ll ever be cleared to play. Also, USC got caught up in the FBI probe as well, so this seems like an especially stupid move.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:49 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      This makes no sense whatsoever. Unless the NCAA clears him to play at USC Jr., in which case, my head might explode. If I may ass-u-me the NCAA will get it right, I really don’t understand why Martin would even want Bowen anywhere near his program. He still has a lot to lose, since he isn’t in hot water just yet with the NCAA.

      Hopefully there won’t be too much snow since I’m going to be at choir retreat in Indiana.

      I’m in dad mode here, so bear with me…I got a snow blade for my lawn tractor a couple of years ago and have been able to actually use it only a couple of times. Bring on the snow, dammit!

      Was watching the weather this morning, and they said it has been nearly 700 days since they issued a winter storm warning in the Louisville area. Got almost no snow last year. They are already backing off on the forecasts around here. Calling for 1-3 inches – earlier they were saying 2-4, and 4-6 in my neck of the woods north of the city. Who knows?

    One of my coworker’s last night asked me if I “suffered through” the A&M game. Fan of winning, but only if winning by a lot, apparently.



    • secrick

      A&M game was a great basketball game. Fun to watch and down to the last second excitement .

      I really enjoyed Bilas crying about the “foul” on the last play.

      As always, I’ll take a win any way we can get it.

      Watched the Louisville game, and Deng got away with a foul right at the end of the game while blocking a shot – got him with the body. So bad calls happen everywhere.



    • runningunnin.454

      Lot of empty seats at that game; Florida State fans don’t care about basketball…tough gig for Leonard Hamilton.

      rg, there was half an empty section right behind the UofL bench, but other shots of the arena made it look decently full, especially for a football school. Still, not the packed house UK gets at SEC football schools like Bama, UT, UF, LSU, etc.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:58 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      I’ll gladly suffer through any win. I may be a little less happy about the win, but still happy nonetheless.

    Rugby is awesome to watch! You have to watch the 7 on 7 version though. It’s pretty much football only the games last only ~15 minutes and they play the entire tournament over a couple of days. NBC usually has the college championship usually around the first weekend of June.



    • runningunnin.454

      Went to rugby games at UK…rough sport; “takes leather balls to play rugby”.

    In the comments on Mrs. T article “How I learned to stop worrying”, a guy claimed to be a UK fan since 1916. I asked how the team did that year, and he took it twice around the dance floor…very funny.



    • J-Dub421

      He also said he’d been a KSR listener since 1976. Lol.



    • J-Dub421
      10:45 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      The comment section of that article is an example of the negative idiots who complain all the time about everything and are never happy. Also, the dude who really hates Brad was back.

      Got a kick out of a few replies from people who are blind to sarcasm and took him seriously.

    Glad for Damien Harris that he is doing well at Bama, but it kind of stings to see Cal missing on basketball recruits because they stay at home-state schools, yet we can’t keep a few football recruits in the Commonwealth. And seeing him skip the NFL for his senior year makes it worse when we lose so many kids early to the NBA. Can we see this even out a little, please?



    • J-Dub421
      10:56 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      Drake Jackson, Landon Young, and Kash Daniel are all Kentucky boys who stayed home. πŸ™‚



    • RealCatsFan
      10:59 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      J-Dub, right you are, and glad they stayed, but I don’t recall them being as high on the radar as Harris. We had Elam too, although he washed out. Our recruiting has improved by leaps and bounds – I guess I am just getting sick of these basketball recruits passing on UK. Can they not see what is going on in the NBA?



    • secrick
      11:01 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      Why did he come back and not go to the NFL? Think he will be Heisman worthy next year?



    • ClutchCargo
      11:01 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      I try not to compare football and basketball, even our basketball team vs. someone else’s football team. Don’t let the other school’s football success interfere with your enjoyment of our school’s basketball success. Guaranteed, their basketball fans feel even worse if they look at it that way.



    • J-Dub421

      Young was a 4-5* and he and Drake were both team captains at the Army All-American game. All three of them crushed it in that game too. Drake and Landon especially were both pretty highly recruited.

      J-Dub, thanks for making me see the bright side. πŸ™‚

    Matt is a confirmed bachelor. I doubt he’ll ever get married, and that’s okay.

      Im meh as well… I still wonder if he’s a gimmick. There’s something odd I think about his voice that makes me wonder if he’s a fake. But even if he’s real, I don’t really see what’s so special about him other than Howard Stern was excited to talk to somebody from Kentucky.

      I like it when he calls, then about half way through I really want him to shut up.

    So the Pelicans are the old Charlotte Hornets, right? And that’s one of the NBA teams that were thinking about relocating to Louisville ten or so years ago, right? So we can thank Tutleneck and Salami-head for blocking what could have been the most awesome NBA ex-UK player reunion ever. And you can’t tell me a team like that wouldn’t draw a crowd!



    • J-Dub421
      11:54 am January 11, 2018 Permalink

      Bologna head, Tommy Turtleneck, and the massive ego of Quick-Draw Rick really screwed us on that one. Thanks losers.
