  1. An almost brush with greatness to tell you all about: I just met someone who used to live in Atlanta and he went to the North Atlanta church of Christ. I asked him “Did you know Aminu Timberlake?” He said yes and said he’s a really good guy, which we already knew from reading on KSR about what he’s doing these days.

    Also, when I asked him I pronounced it “AH-muhnoo”, and he said “Oh yeah, I know ‘uh-MEE-noo”. So, just like Lynn Bowden. I have been corrected on my pronunciation after all these years!

      Aminu should have cold-cocked Laettner.

    • Yeah, I told him that Ralph Hacker said if that had been Deron Feldhaus, Laettner’s ankle probably would have been broken.

      Heard a story about Rupp; but, I don’t remember the player. There was a guy bringing rough stuff, and Rupp told his player, ” I want his teeth on the floor, or you’re walking home”.
      A tooth did hit the floor, so I guess our guy didn’t have to walk home.

    • Wow. That’s hardcore.

      During the early 90’s, I used to love when some opposing guard would become an “overzealous” defender against Travis Ford, and Jamal Mashburn would set a pick at mid-court and just level the dude. He’d then mean-mug the guy, and then they would magically be less physical against Ford than they had been. It was hilarious.

    • I read an article about Pat Riley years ago. It mentioned (as did the “30 for 30” about the Celtics/Lakers) that the “Showtime” image and Gucci suits belied his New York toughness. Someone said when he was at UK a player put a cheap shot on Louie Dampier and Riley told him under no uncertain terms he better not do it again, and he didn’t.

    • Moderated for telling a story about Pat Riley’s toughness. *sigh*

    • Oops! It posted. Thanks Tyler!

    Dawson knew about half a dozen recruits and kept it quiet. Right. I believe you.

  6. Why does WLAP play the same newsbreak twice during the same commercial break, and sometimes if not that we get 2 newsbreaks before the bottom of the hour? It seems to be even worse during Sunday Morning Sports talk. Please, the bottom and top of the hour are enough!

    Some schools are just bottom feeders, offering recruits’ best friends and hiring half their families to get them.

      or hiring their dad’s as an assistant coach who just sits on the sideline and does nothing all year

      For a couple hundred thousand dollars, and then the dad/uncle/whatever leaves after a year when the kid does. No, nothing shady about that at all….

    That guy should give his workout a catchy name, write a book, and start a website. We’ve seen less creative workouts start a movement. Switch out some push ups for sit ups and squats though, sheesh.

    If you stop in the middle of Kroger and are blocking the aisle doing push-ups, I will run you over with my cart. You have been warned.

      Ha ha….aisle rage.

    • What if it’s just because I dropped some produce? ;-P

      Picking up produce is acceptable, but not holding everyone up for several minutes while doing push-ups.

      I get cart rage more often than I get road rage. I think I’ve gotten used to crappy driving, but I haven’t gotten used to people just being straight up inconsiderate when shopping lol

      Is there a sidewalk walking rage? I think I get that when people can’t seem to figure out how to share it.

      It all comes down to a complete lack of self-awareness and lack of awareness that there are other people around you who may not be moving at your same pace. Just be considerate of those around you, that’s not asking too much.

      The privately owned joints are always better than the national chains like Burger King and McDonalds.
      Down Owensboro way, there used to be drive ins in Island Ky and one in Calhoun called Jay’s.
      Don’t know if they’re still there.

    The problem is, what if they end up either not turning pro-or turning pro and washing out in a year or two. They need to have a fall-back. Allowing players to completely not go to any classes will hurt them more in the long run.

    A major in Athletics, covering all aspects of the industry. To prepare one to be a pro player, a coach, an analyst, or administrator. I like this idea. A lot of the Last Chance U kind of guys would probably be more interested in school if it was about what they love.

    • Even a sports management degree requires some accounting, etc., so a degree like that might still require some harder courses like that (at least for the administrator part I would think).



    • J-Dub421

      A lot of them should be taking public speaking, marketing, business, etc. The guys who are going to definitely turn pro should learn about contracts, etc. and how to manage their money, branding, and other things that will help them. UK’s program teaches a lot of that. They still need to learn things and go to classes though.

      Also, if you’re a professional athlete, you may play until you’re about 40 at the oldest. Most retire even earlier than that. You still need to have something to retire to and have other interests because you still have a lot of life left. College can help you figure out what your other interests are.

      Exactly, Chris, real classes where they have to work, but with a focus on what they love. Also why, Jdub, I’d make it broader than a major in a sport. A major in the entire industry with multiple options, a la a hospitality degree.
