It’s Matthew Mitchell Day! (Thursday Show Thread)

Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Thursday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio. Today, UK Hoops coach Matthew Mitchell takes over the mics for his annual visit. Tune in to hear him spar with Ryan Lemond, give us an update on his squad, and sing along to Kelly Clarkson. If that’s not enough for you, Mitchell is bringing on special guest STEVE SPURRIER! And yes, that sound you just heard is me geeking out all the way down here in Nashville.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    O.J. day….will he get out?

      I think so. He’s done enough time for the crime he was actually convicted of.

      It’s like an era ending. Karen Sypher also finished serving their time. Hope Matt’s booking her for Hey Ky or his podcast.

      Matt should book Karen and Katina on the same show. Those two could become great friends.

      Well, as female scapegoats for the bad behavior of Louisville coaches, they have a lot in common.

    I am all for the playoff bracket in the FB locker room. Almost no one thought they could beat Louisville last season, but the team actually did, and it worked.

      I don’t expect us to be in the playoff this year, but if you’re not trying to win, then what are you doing?

      That’s true. I would have liked a SEC championship bracket with UK in the East, and a little jab at you know who, with a big question mark in the West.

    I always love when Coach Mitchell is on.

    If you can’t get Kelly Clarkson, I’ll sing with you Coach!

    Hmmm, either my app died, or they’ve forgotten to run ads during the break.

    Is it me, or is this the most boring Spurrier has ever sounded? Someone make him mad.

      No, no. he would throw his phone or his visor or his hat or something.

      I was thinking he was actually nice when he’s not purposefully trolling us.

      Nice OBC is not as entertaining, and also a little disorienting to listen to. 🙂

    Cruise Mitchell is awful close to Cruise Missile.

    UofL athletics board is currently whining about renegotiating the Yuck Center lease, saying their being punished for success. No dummies, you’re being punished for bankrupting the whole thing with your corrupt original lease.

      That idiot code red was on here yesterday whining, while pretending that U of L’s board and the Arena Authority Board weren’t the same people. U of L gave themselves a sweetheart deal by negotiating with themselves. They didn’t pay for the arena but have (and want to keep) complete control over the venue and get all the profits. Meanwhile Tommy Turtleneck got an extra 6 million or so in extra compensation off the books on top of his already huge salary.

      Yeah, saw that. Defending UL reminds me of the old “Mission Impossible” TV show,
      “Your mission, should you choose to accept it”….is apt to make you look like a fool.

      I was mostly annoyed that he was trying to say the city was stupid for giving U of L the deal. But the city didn’t give U of L the deal. U of L gave themselves the deal.

    I’ve wondered if Maci Morris was named after Kyle…she wears the No. 4

      I think she is, her parents are big UK fans.
