Jerry Tipton with the biggest Debbie Downer post of all time

I saw the headline and assumed it was probably a joke. Then I read the list of the Top 10 Things Kentucky Cans Can Complain About by Jerry Tipton and nearly fell out of my seat laughing. Jerry just keeps being Jerry. Tipton has caught some flack over the years for having an “overly negative” tone about Kentucky basketball… and today’s article did nothing to dis-spell that notion. (In fairness, it was a bit tongue-in-cheek)

Jerry Tipton needs to be on the Debbie Downer SNL clip. I read the entire article and thought to myself, “womp, womp.”

I once successfully requested "The Wobble" to be played 6 times at one wedding.

      You don’t think quoting Billy Packer, about wishing injuries on someone, is bad?

    Why have a link to any LHL article much less to a Tipton article?

      This ^^^.. Idiotic to not only point out the usual Debbie Downer drivel from Jerry Tipton, but you actually give a link to give him clicks? Really?

    Is Jerry Tipton talking about UK Basketball or the Lexington newspaper?.. Subscriptions to the Herald Leader went up as well and still hasn’t stopped uninspiring articles like the one I just read in the Lexington paper. One of the biggest complaint a UK fan should have, local written article like this… someone sitting around thinking what can I write today…Oh wait, let me TELL UK FANS what they should complain about..and getting paid for writing this stuff?…..Journalism at its finest! Well done Herald Leader you employ the “best”. Pulitzer waiting for this article I am sure! At least a UK ticket you get to see a basketball game that a Rupp is usually a “W”.

      First, Tipton does suck. However, If you are going to complain about a person’s writing skills, you should make your post comprehensible. Try to use complete sentences in the future.

    Just ignore Jerry. IGNORE him. NEVER type his name, NEVER mention his name, NEVER read his columns or post. To him any attention is good attention.

    “Kentucky Cans”?


    Do you read over your posts before you submit them? My goodness. This is embarrassing. Are you sure you aren’t a UNC basketball player?

    My resolution for this year was to attempt to avoid hate. Consequently I must avoid people like this. Just remember that Jerry Tipton felt it appropriate to lie about seeing Patrick Paterson drive his new vehicle to Rupp when it was actually in Huntington. Liars should never be printed and people trying to avoid hating must always try to avoid the same newspaper.
