    So how was Uncle Matt during the iHeart Media Christmas party last night? Was Tony V out of control? Cold up there in the Windy City?

    Elwood: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.

    Jake: Hit it.

    Matt, come back to Chicago in February and walk to work and see how you like the hustle and bustle.

    If you are looking for a last minute hotel option, the Best Western River North has free parking. Four blocks off Michigan Ave.

    Wow, the “Show Thread” is deader every day. I understand wanting to dump the trolls, but the comments section as a whole is pretty dead and is a big zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz for the most part.

    I find no reason to even log on and read KSR if the show thread peters out and they seem to want it to die.

    Tubby’s recruiting/boring style of play and the Billy G fiasco pretty much killed my basketball interest. It’s great what UKBB is experiencing now, but that part of me died and just can’t seem to be bothered to care anymore.

    Bring on FB season.

      I know what you mean, the basketball was average for a while while the football program kept crushing everyone in their path. Worst post of the week award lady and gentlemen!

    If the show thread dies, where will I complain about Ky Joe?

    Kentucky Joe seems to be clueless that he is despised by Matt an much of BBN.



    • bigbluecoop

      Matt and Ryan are to blame for Kentucky Joe. Matt let him sing once and they gave him some praise and applause, and I said to myself, “They will regret this for a long time.”

      And Drew. He had a big hand in turning Stone Cold Willow and Ky Joe both into delusional jokes.



    • bigbluecoop
      11:01 am December 19, 2014 Permalink

      What’s happened to Drew? Not that I think he ever added a lot to the show, but just curious. I don’t think I’ve heard him since the Bahamas trip.

      He’s on the pregame shows a lot.

    This show has got to stop the hating of Rajon Rondo. Completely unfair and unjustified.

      Agree. He is one of those that they can only be negative about.

    Matt think your getting senile, your repeating stories now, u told the Clay county shop til u drop with a cop story yesterday, has the show become rinse & repeat now or what? 😉

    I don’t know which commercial is worse, Fake Lou Holtz, John Short or Drew. I still don’t know what FLH is saying, poor John and his Mac and cheese, or Drew’s blase attitude, “Yeah, I said that”.

      Drew’s doctor in 2020: “Due to your extremely poor eating habits for the past 15 years, you’ve developed a chronic auto-immune disorder… Yeah, I just said that.”

      The complete beauty of the FLH Red State BBQ ad is that you CAN’T understand it. Exceptionally good.

    Rondo’s numbers at UK should have been through the roof, but Tubby did not coach him the right way at all. If I was Rondo, I’d have been pissed too. Tubby was given the keys to a Ferrari, but only drove it around the block.

    Matt, Cal is great with all the of older guys who didn’t play for him at UK. Does he have any kind of relationship with Rondo?



    • UKfaninLou

      I’d like to know this too.



    • bigbluecoop
      11:23 am December 19, 2014 Permalink

      I believe Rondo has been to some practices since Cal has been here.

    Don’t forget Tayshaun as an NBA player. He won a ring with the Piston, as well as Olympic Gold. Now he’s a major player on the Grizzlies, who I believe, are sporting the best record after beating the Warriors the other night.



    • ktmiln2
      11:02 am December 19, 2014 Permalink

      The most appropriate thing I’ve ever heard about Tayshaun is that while he won’t be in the NBA Hall of Fame, he would be the first into the Hall of Really Good.

      Tayshaun is just so consistent. One of my favorite ex-UK pros.

    I’d go to Chicago, but I am still afraid of getting caught up in a Coach Ditka versus Hurricane Ditka battle.

    Dan Issel is 9th in total combined points (NBA & ABA), 8th is Shaq, 10th is Elvin Hayes

    But can you honestly say this year so far, and this year so far only, that Harrison has been better the Harrow? The Ryan Harrow at UK is not the Ryan Harrow now, and Andrew has had a really mediocre year.



    • buttercup
      11:44 am December 19, 2014 Permalink

      Harrow is the best player for Georgia State. Georgia State.



    • ukbradstith
      11:47 am December 19, 2014 Permalink

      I’d say Ron Hunter Jr. is Georgia State’s best player actually.



  23. KevinM

    Matt, you know who was hateable in the pros?

    Living in Atlanta, and having to watch Christian Laettner in a Hawks uniform.

    I vote Courtney’s call as most irrelevant of the day. Edging out Ky. Joe.



  25. Cat House

    Everybody knew Rondo disrespected Tubby by simply watching him pound the ball for 25 seconds at the head of the key. Tubby didn’t coach him to do that. But, it is on Tubby because he didn’t sit him.

    They sold the bobbleheads at the old Hands On Originals.

    There was the first set of 4 mentioned, and later a second set of 4 (I don’t remember exactly who was in those). I have them all.

    Speaking of Billie Clyde

    But has anyone else noticed the similarity of the New FOOTBALL OC in pictures and Billie??

    I saw SHANNON THE OC DUDE’s picture on here the other day and did a double take.

    I was unable to copy the link to my post with Shannon Dawson’s picture and Billie Clyde’s picture.
    It is a little unsettling.

    Indiana is my favorite game (was my favorite game) and I’m only 36. Of course I live in Southern Indiana, so that’s why, but I just loved that game so much.



  31. buttercup

    Indiana stinks now.

    UCLA is worse than IU anyway. IU has the most top 25 wins of any program since 2010-2011 I believe. So even though they lose a lot, they do often beat the big dogs, plus it’s so heated, I think those games are good for us.



    • catdaddyd
      12:21 pm December 19, 2014 Permalink

      I have a hard time believing that. But I would rather see the IU game than UCLA. I think most fans would, regardless of what Matt says.

    Listening on podcast, I forgot all about that Drew guy who was on the show. Forgot how little he added to the show.
