University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

KSR Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Today’s Podcast

The Kentucky Sports Radio crew enjoyed its first trip to Northern Kentucky for Tuesday morning’s show, live from Dickmann’s. As you can see, Dickmann’s has a staff that is second to none. They are very, um, very photogenic. And smokin’ hot.

As for the show, it included great interviews with Jeff Piecoro and Jon Rothstein, plus entertaining play-by-play commentary from Matt and Shannon The Dude as Ryan Lemond tried to run his way through the arm wrestling gauntlet. He even took down two women at once, something we never thought we’d say about Ryan.

Listen to both hours of the show below:

And if you’re in a hurry to hear Rothstein’s interview about Monday’s UK basketball practice, it can be heard here:

Other small and tidbits from the first part of the day:

— Following up what he said to Rothstein during their Q&A session, John Calipari told Mike DeCourcy the sole reason he turned down NBA offers was because of the players coming back. “If I came back after the date and left … tough move,” he said. “If it was your son, how would you feel? ‘That rat, we could have left, why didn’t he tell us?’”

— USA Basketball announced its 12-man U17 roster from the 33-man tryout and nine of the 12 have offers to play at UK. They are Ivan Rabb, Malik Newman, Diamond Stone, Henry Ellenson, and Caleb Swanigan of the 2015 class, plus Jayson Tatum, Tyus Battle, VJ King and Harry Giles of the 2016 class. Malik Monk, one of the hottest names in the July recruiting period, did not make the squad.

— The Denver Broncos put a microphone on former UK star Danny Trevathan during Monday’s practice. Listen to Trevathan get Mic’d Up here. It sure would be nice to have a guy like Trevathan at linebacker in Lexington this upcoming season. Or anyone close to his ability, for that matter.

— Hey, Lexington… Julius Randle will be signing autographs at Wildcat Wearhouse in Fayette Mall tonight from 7 to 8 pm. Stop by and see him before he heads off to Los Angeles to get ready to start his rookie season.

That’ll do it for now. More throughout the day.

    This is why Amanda worries about Ryan’s groupies!

      I think Amanda can rest easy, none of these chicks are hooking up with the balding 4-eyes mess known as Ryan Lemond.

    Smooth move Matt, strategically position yourself between the hot ones.

    That comment by Cal hints that now his comments some years ago [when he dreamed about] (and echoed by him when he got here) about being THE UK coach has some tarnish. I guess he never knew then about the CRAZY factor. The point is: if the returning players had decided differently, would Cal be the UK coach today?

      And will he leave as those who have returned do?
      Sure helps recruiting……NOT………Just keep quite Cal.

    Gordonm – a good chance he wouldn’t be IMO, especially with the Cleveland thing, if he had serious interest the Cavs could have waited until after free agency to sign him. Put 2+2 together – between this quote and him openly saying “who wouldn’t want to coach Lebron”.

    After this year, it’s anyone’s guess at what he will do.

      I am beginning to think that the returning players called (like a game of cards) coach on his verbal talk/coaching.

      I’m sorry that you can’t tell the difference between a whore and a non-whore. Someone might want to check this guys wife and mom out for him to make sure.

    It was great for Matt and Ryan to make it up to my part of the state. Wish I could have been there but work got in the way.

    Also noticed the podcast was broken back down into 2 hour segments again. Someone must have complained…

      The breaking into 2 hour segments is sarcasm Right?

    You didn’t really want to include 4 and 2, did you? Not there is anything wrong with that.

    I have been going to Dickman’s to watch UK games for years and they have always had talent. The girl on Matt’s left was my server today, pic doesn’t do her justice. Total smoke.
