    Looking to get rid of my season tickets for bball. Center court and ten rows back. Would anyone be interested?

      Willing to sell them for around 300 for the entire season.

      Yep. I’m serious. Actually 3 tickets. I’m just not a fan of the team anymore.

      It just seems weird that someone that is enough of a fan to have season tickets would take a loss on them because they stopped being a fan during a time of unprecedented success.



    • Serious
      10:42 am July 21, 2014 Permalink

      Haven’t liked the team for 15 years now. Just kept the tickets to give to charity or to friends. I graduated from UK but have had season tickets for UofL for around 6 years. Figured someone else could make better use of the Kentucky tickets.

      Maybe this guy just doesn’t like winning, give him a break. I’ll take those tickets for that price, I enjoy watching winners win.

      This sounds like a ul fan playing a joke. If he has the tickets at all, proceed with care. Being a ul fan can have a lot of bad meaning. Are the tickets stolen? It would seem reasonable.

    Matt, the picture of this summer.

  8. So I hear on local radio (in Montgomery, AL) this morning that Bama got a commitment from Brandon Kennedy, a 4 star (on Rivals) center from Wetumpka, AL just up the road from Montgomery. Although Kennedy is in the class of 2015, could this help UK get Drake Jackson, even though he’s in the class of 2016?

    Not really right to call teenage girls groupies. Where teenage boys who are athletic go, teenage girls will follow. I don’t think it’s fair to think they are there to take advantage of anything. That would imply they are wise beyond their years.

      11:07 am July 21, 2014 Permalink

      I don’t really get why they are groupies just because they go and watch boys play basketball. All over America this is what high school girls do. These girls are just looking for a cute boy and could care less if they are going to play for Kentucky or a D3 school. Those of you who look at teenage girls that way need to re-assess your mental health. It’s not right.

      As someone who remembers what it is like to be a teenage girl, I hope those of you leaving pig comments all have teenage daughters at some point. Then you can imagine “men” like you saying horrible things about them for no reason.

      Delk, I hope those tickets are real and you get them.

      I’m out of here, don’t even want to see any more replies.

    Cal has already hired a dad, Dajuan Wagner.



  21. weston
    10:59 am July 21, 2014 Permalink

    If Cal was leaving next year would he be putting this much effort into recruiting?

    • I’m not saying he’s leaving, but I think the answer is yes. We often talk about players who only have 1 speed because they go all out all the time. I think Cal has 1 speed when it comes to not only recruiting, but promoting the program in general.

    Hi Matt,

    I’ve been trying to get through on the lines, but you’re too popular this morning.

    I have a new idea to promote the KSR brand:

    Endorse candidates for political office like all the special interest groups. Require candidates to compete for the endorsement as the biggest UK fan in the race. Let’s hold our candidates accountable to support the best basketball program in the state.

    I know a guy who was suppose to be on one of the flights on 9-11 but he went out drinking the night before and missed the flight because of it. So alcohol saved his life.
