    Did Matt ever say what happened yesterday when Danny called? Sounded like everything was fine after the break. I need a haircut really bad, but I can’t do it until the season is over!

      If you go back and listen to it on podcast, they edited some of it out. He was obviously hiding something serious or he would have made a joke about it.

    Glad to hear you are okay, Matt. It was a drastic change in mood for the show yesterday during that last segment before the top of the hour break. It was obvious to anyone who listens everyday.

  26. Mash Davis

    Matt, we noticed something was up because your voice changed. You sounded like something was in your throat and your tone and pitch were totally different than when you started.

    I have a seizure disorder too… and have experienced an Aura too… for me its like everything is in extreme slow motion and I cant really speak or anything for 5-6 seconds and then everything comes back to normal. Most of the time it serves as a warning that my medicine is at low levels.

    I noticed the cat PAUSE too, yesterday, Matt. Glad you’re okay. And the NOAH advertisement really really lets my boss know I’m not doing data entry, and I’m actually reading NCAA Final Four news. Just thought I’d let Ya’ll know!!! GO CATS

    Mojo question. You said going to the game trumps doing the same thing for mojo. I can’t get to Dallas, but I can go to Lexington to take part in the Celebration. Does this count for mojo or do I have to go back to my friend’s basement?

What about B.Knight is his career over along with his education/ absolutely not!! These media guys want act as if these guys go off into a black hole to never be heard of again. Make no mistake when Cal is sitting in the living room of these recruits he sells them on beginning their education at KY as well as beginning their careers. At Ky we it’s not one and done it’s ONE AND BEGUN. These guys begin their lives and become part of something that is bigger than any one individual.

      You’re exactly right. I don’t understand what the big deal is at all. Kids in golf leave school early to become pro and there is no criticism of that. Only when it is basketball — and the kids are African-American — is when the media gets uncomfortable.

    Matt I was at the NIT championship game last night with a group of 8th graders from West Carter Middle School in Olive Hill, KY. The majority of our kids were sporting the UK blue and we were setting directly behind the SMU band. Peyton Siva was sitting right next to Ricky. We hoped they saw the Big Blue in the crowd because BBN got in.

    The only movie outside of The Hunger Games I have seen of his is Bridge to Terabithia and that movie made me bawl my eyes out.

    Josh was in Kicking and Screaming. He played Wil Ferrel’s half brother.

    The Hunger Games Trilogy was a great read. The movie is decent.

    Morning Matt – IMO, the twins don’t have to be One & Done if they are smart kids and choose to stay for one more year even if their NBA draft is rising 🙂
