      John Calipari and college basketball are a match made a few levels below heaven.
      …there are the search results for you hypocrites…. fyi, i hate the cards but if you
      want reality they will kill UK in football and also win in basketball this year.

      Where do you see this improvement? I think they have had two practices thus far and played zero games! Could it just be in the homers heads? I predict South Carolina by at least 23 points. We shall see who is right!

    So, are the trolls going to be on here today claiming that Derek (not Derrick!) Willis got into some trouble over the weekend? With literally EVERYONE carrying around a camera these days, if there is not video or pictures floating around by now, I have to seriously doubt that it happened.

      yeah i’m not sure where the rumors started. but if something went down inside 2keys and there’s no video, i’d have to seriously doubt it’s authenticity

    • One of the guys running with that yesterday was FBI Informant. There was another one but I forget his screen name. J-Dub was working them over. 🙂

      Ha! Matt is addressing the Willis rumour. Of course, it originated on a UofL message board. What a surprise!

      InsideInfo = Louisville Troll? Claims to be a UK graduate. Did the football players pick on him or something?

      CG, maybe it was FBI Informant. If so, sincere apologies to InsideInfo. My mistake. Don’t have time to go back to that thread to look. Facts are optional, right? 🙂

    • The other one was Big Blue Shawn. Here is the link where they were spreading that rumor in the comments. J-Dub had her gloves off and worked them over like she was Conor McGregor!

      Inside info2 likes to throw shit against the wall to see what sticks. My favorite was “Robic only signs one year contracts because he hates Cal”. THE NEXT DAY, Robuc signs a two year extension.

      Oh, and “Patterson liked Gillespie more than Cal”, never mind what his own mother said on the radio.

      No Chris, it’s a fact! It happened FBI Informant said so! We should all believe him! He’s a UK alum! (One who admittedly already graduated and lives in Louisville and therefore was not in 2 Keys on a Monday night.) But he knows it’s true!!

      Snitches get stitches. 😉 Just kidding, I am not advocating violence in any way. I just can’t stand when people throw out anonymous unsubstantiated rumors with the sole purpose of stirring the pot. I think it’s irresponsible. If something comes out from a reputable news source, then we can talk about it. Until then, just assume it isn’t true. Any idiot on the internet can say anything they want. You can’t believe everything.

    The phenomenon where the UK fan base obsession and adoration makes players entitled is a sad thing. Dumb crimes that embarrass us all, public and private complaints and criticism of an era they should enjoy as much as we do, not being willing to share the spotlight and be family with the Cal teams. It’s a shame.

      I should have said SOME players entitled, to be fair.

      Rick continues to show his stripes. I don’t know why Rick’s former players are all so loyal to him when he is only loyal to himself.



    • Realme
      10:47 am August 24, 2016 Permalink

      I think they should be loyal to him, but they should also be able to understand why most of the fan base isn’t.



    • J-Dub421
      10:50 am August 24, 2016 Permalink

      Yes and no, They shouldn’t necessarily be loyal to Rick over being loyal to UK, especially when Rick went over to the dark side.

      True, not over UK.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:59 am August 24, 2016 Permalink

      i can understand some ppl being loyal to rick over uk because there are times when a player is loyal to the coach that recruits them, not the school or the fan base. that’s why when coaches move jobs, recruits follow them a lot of the time. you think rose, evans, wall, or cuz REALLY wanted to play for Memphis? hell no. they wanted to play for cal. but if i was friends with a man that is as petty and as conniving as rick has been the last few years, i don’t know how close i’d be with that person anymore.

  5. Hey, if you guys have a CBS Sports Radio affiliate, listen up to see if they play a great “Sports Minute” with Boomer Esiason about Jon Toth.

    They play those spots usually at the top of the hour…not sure if they play them at other times. I didn’t quite catch it all, but I heard part of it right before I turned off my radio and logged on to iHeart for KSR. It was all about his work habits (stretching at like 5:45 a.m. before films at 8:00 while majoring in engineering, etc.). He also said something about a family member of his who was sick when he was younger, but again, I didn’t quite catch the whole thing. Some of the stuff about his work habits is here:

    Some of the funniest radio I’ve heard was the post game of the Indiana tournament game in 2012. All of the calls were terrible and Matt was losing it. That was the show where the infamous “I hope Sam Malone appreciates this” comment was made. Haha

  10. No, the Show Thread “died” because MJ and co. don’t read it, and the comment section as a whole “died” because of the required logins. A lot of folks don’t want to create one. I know it’s reduced the trolling, but I get tired of having to create a login for every.single.site it seems.

    WLAP won’t even let you stream without an iHeart login now apparently. I created one once on my phone, but when the app updated it logged me out, so no thank you.

      11:38 am August 24, 2016 Permalink

      and to be honest, it seems like some of the trolls are more determined than some posters. there are trolls that go out and make 5, 10 accounts just so they can post as different people pretending to agree with themselves. and changing their names was a popular tactic for a while before that was super obvious. might as well remove the login part at that point if the trolls are getting in anyway

      even LDS doesn’t know. he started out saying he doesn’t have to change his name to argue with a bunch of “cheerleaders” (a very popular term of the trolls). then he finally landed on “Larry Pratt” and said that was his real name and he won’t change it anymore.

      However that was right around the time trolls stopped trying to change their name and a ton of new accounts started making one-time posts all from the same few IP addresses.

      but back to the issue of required logins, i wonder if webhosts get more click money from logged in users than a regular anon user because they are easier to track. so ksr comments may have gone down overall but are they still generating more money per click? but just a guess, i have no clue.
