    So, if Louisville goes to the NIT Final Four and hangs a banner for it, will they get to keep it after the FBI investigation shakes out and the NCAA slaps them again? 🙂

    • I say let them keep it!

    • RealCatsFan

      cg, they can put a big asterisk on it. 😀

      Maybe they should hang this one with Velcro, as they used to try say about UK with such snarkiness.

    • Yeah, I’ll never forget the person here with the screen name Vac8te for the longest after 2012. I wonder if that was DennyC or CodeRed? Whoever it was, they quit posting after it became obvious our title wasn’t being Vac8ted.

    • J-Dub421

      Vac8te was just being prophetic about U of L’s title…

  2. Every state having 2 senators is not fair? So much for Matt’s knowledge of history, and in particular this country’s founding. That was done for a reason. Yeesh.

      That’s just embarrassing. Damn, brother, I don’t believe I’da told that (said in my best Lewis Grizzard voice).

      Clutch, when someone said something embarrassing, buddy of mine used to say “I believe I’d have taken that one to the grave with me.” 😀

    Not really sports related, but Kentucky County related. Anyone from Carter County on here? Found a guy here in Louisville selling a car that someone had in a barn down there for 38 years. Current owner has had the car since 2008 and has it on eBay. Current bid: $175,300.00. Why the hell wasn’t I hanging around Carter Co in 2008?

      I had a chance to buy a ’57 Cadillac that was stored for years like that. That thing was beautiful, and in mint condition…had like 39,000 miles; but the air didn’t work. So I messed up.

    • What kind of car RCF?

      RG, when I was in high school in the late 70s, a friend’s dad restored a red 66 Caddy convertible for him and we got to ride around in it with him with the top down after football games, and stuff like that. 🙂

      That thing was AWESOME. One friend said “I don’t like that car. It looks like a big red floating tank!” I said “I know! That’s why I love it!” Even though our high school is blue (think Auburn unis & color scheme) and our rival is red.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:24 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      rg, you probably wouldn’t want to know what that thing is worth today. This car was a 1970 ‘Cuda with the 426 Hemi engine. Dude bought it new when he came back from Vietnam, then parked it when he got married and had kids. Thing is amazingly well preserved. This car will probably end up bringing at least a half mil. Amazing.

    • A 70 Cuda!? Wow! I’d love to just be able to drive it one time.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:31 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      cg, Yep! I could picture the dude on Graveyard Carz going nuts over this one.

    • runningunnin.454
      10:33 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      RCF, even Ford Edsels are worth a bunch today. I was going to buy a 70 Cuda back then; but, instead I bought a 70 Roadrunner…I wish I had never sold that car. For more than one reason,
      The kid that bought the Roadrunner was killed drag racing in it; I saw the wreck, and you couldn’t even tell what it was.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:34 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      cg, I love old Caddy’s, and I especially love convertibles – I have two of them (got them before I got married – don’t ask.) There’s nothing like riding around with the top down on a warm summer evening. Ah, the simple pleasures of life.

    • I have a cool coffee table book I bought in a bargain bin years ago. It’s about muscle cars, and it gives their specs and everything, not just photos. It even talks about dealers that customized them and “hopped them up” as we used to say it. One was the Yenko Nova (Don Yenko I believe). Yenko was a dealer in Ohio I think.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:38 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      cg, I probably have the same book. 🙂 Don Yenko was famous for his Yenko SC (SuperCar) Camaros, Chevelles, and Novas. He found a way to order the cars straight from Chevrolet with the big dog Corvette motors, and a factory warranty. 😉

      We are probably boring the rest of the KSR audience with our motorhead banter. 😉

      cg, that story reminds me of the Ky Headhunters song,
      “I like the feelin’ when the women get to squealin’ in the back of my Caddy”. Ha ha.

      You guys are reminding me of my grandfather. He had a navy blue Lincoln Towncar that he loved. It lived in the garage with a cover over it too. He would only take it out on nice days, wash it and wax it, then go for a drive. As I was a little kid at the time, I used to think it was a limo.

    LOL, Matt has a problem with the founding fathers. Rhode Island and Kentucky, etc have two Senators like NY and Calif to provide equality.
    The more populated states have more representation in the House.

    It never fails about this time every, single year some in the media troll the UK fan base, see Metcalf & Norlander, in a way that even Trump would be proud of. Don’t allow them the pleasure of the clicks. They post the most absurd things about UK because they know that outlets like KSR will put them on blast and thus send BBN flocking to their article. Let’s not give them any more clicks (money) and stop promoting these goobers.

      Depends on the outcome…no? Extra adrenaline if we win.

      K State only scored 50 against UMBC, I feel pretty good about it being the extra adrenaline option

      I think Wenyen, Quade, Kevin and Hami will need to be connecting from outside, as I can see K St packing it in and trying to get us top play Big 10 style basketball.

    I was listening to 790 AM radio this morning (often entertaining to hear the Louisville fans whine), and the thought of UK having an easy path to the Final Four is making Captain Suntan’s life miserable. 🙂

  8. Hey 4ever;

    I think it was you and Realme that said you’re into the true crime podcasts. It’s not my thing, but did you see where The Onion has come out with a parody of those? Judging from this article you would probably find it funny (it says they parody, among other things, formulaic things that are a part of all of them):

    Western Kentucky is still alive in the NIT; they beat the Trojans last night. I couldn’t stay up that late, but I’m sure it was at USC.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:40 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      Yep, heard on the radio that there is a chance that Western and Louisville could be playing for the NIT championship. How rich would it be if they knocked Louisville out of it?

    • Booby Petrino
      10:41 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      please let them play and beat Louisville, that would be great comedy.

    • runningunnin.454

      I don’t know. Western may have a problem with OK State, and UL may have a problem with Miss State.

    • ClutchCargo
      10:50 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      As much as I would love to see that, I don’t think there is any way WKU would beat UofL. Little brother seems genuinely into this tournament, unlike most of them that are just going through the motions. They have accepted their fate and are beginning to make the most of it.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:15 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      Clutch, would you have thought that a team called the Retrievers would beat UVA? (Would have loved if UK had the chance to play them – I could see a new Cal quip: “these Retrievers aren’t peeing down their leg.”) 🙂

    • ClutchCargo
      11:31 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      No, I didn’t see that coming at all. But one unlikely event happening doesn’t mean that another unlikely event will also happen. But hey, there is always hope, right? 🙂

    Big surprise, Trae Young will enter the NBA draft. Didn’t see that coming.

    Who is this fool? Diallo is not a center and no he should not play center. Do people not understand the different skill sets needed for different positions?

    • DrSayre
      11:38 am March 20, 2018 Permalink

      In that guy’s defense, I think Cal briefly mentioned something about Diallo at the 5 if they had some foul trouble on the call in show last night.

    No way I want dook to win another title, no matter what. The only exception would be if the NCAA finally woke up and busted them for all their cheating, and we got to watch the banner come down.

    • J-Dub421

      We both know that would never happen. Saint K can do no wrong in the eyes of the NCAA.
