    Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Glad you are all down in Ryan’s other home town in Standford.

      Duncan’s last game in college was against Stanford, not Kentucky.

    Matt, to be fair, you said at the beginning of last season that UofL was going to suck, and they ended up as a pretty good team. If not for the post-season ban, a lot of people had them penciled in as a dark horse in the tourney. I think they will be solid again next year, especially if Onuaku returns. They have some talent – not UK-level talent, but they will be good, unless the NCAA squashes them. And since they are in the AlwaysCheatingConference, I don’t see the NCAA doing much to them.

    Every time no one comments until way into the show (not counting JB who just makes his “first” comment and leaves every day), I watch to see if this is finally the day that show thread dies. RCF, good job keeping it going for one more day… πŸ™‚

      It will pick up closer to football and basketball seasons. The summer is a bit of a dead period.

    The NCAA needs to make a set of guidelines for punishment like the NBA and NFL have. Currently, it always feel like they assign punishments at random. Programs can commit similar infractions, and one gets a slap on the wrist while the other gets bent over.

      They already don’t have or deserve any credibility, but if they really don’t punish North Carolina for the most massive academic scandal one could imagine, they should not have the authority to punish anyone. Maybe it should be left to the conferences to police themselves.

      I agree Realme – from here on out, any school under the NCAA flashlight has the green light to drop their drawers and tell the NCAA to kizz their azz.

      An enforcement panel made up of representatives from a cross section of member schools in the NCAA would be much better and probably offer up fair and reasonable enforcement. Kind of like a United Nations of college athletics. They could hold “elections” every 5 years or so to keep fresh blood in there and prevent one school from monopolizing it.

      If you look at say, the NFL or even the US legal system, there are certain guidelines for what punishments can be assigned depending on the severity of the crime or infraction. If an NFL player tests positive for weed and it’s a first offence, they get suspended for a certain number of games, they get suspended more games for a second infraction, and so on. Part of the reason everyone gets so outraged at the NCAA all the time is the lack of consistency in rule enforcement and in doling out punishments.

      I agree with you completely that if UNC doesn’t get punished, then what is the point of the NCAA? They should be disbanded. Regardless of whether or not regular student could enroll in the fake classes, there is enough evidence to show that athletes (especially in football and basketball) were directed specifically into the fake classes in order to keep them academically eligible. Therefore, UNC played ineligible players. End of story.

    • Nick Saban, and some media types (Tony Barnhart I think) are calling for a Commissioner of College Football. If we had that, and one for basketball, maybe there would be more consistency, but who knows.

    Cal should be far and away the highest paid coach among SEC basketball coaches. Let me know when one of the other coaches does something of note, like makes an Elite 8 or something.

      “you’re welcome”, not “your welcome”.

      You’re welcome for the correction. Sorry I couldn’t do more to make you post sound intelligent.

      If you “preach” constantly for years, you’re bound to get one thing right every few years.

    Look for a future promotion coming from our ole boy Papa John for UofL Athletics – one free lap dance for any current UofL student with the purchase of any large one topping when the Cards play, don’t forget to tip your ho’s!

    old tires hold water where mosquitoes breed.



  10. CPACAT

    Tires that are dumped (i.e. not recycled) hold rain water, which is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Promoting recycling of tires, helps reduce the number of “dumped” tires, thus reducing the breeding grounds.

    • I tuned in late so MJ and co may have talked about this, but I heard the guy who came up with the idea of grinding up tires to make “carpet” for the fast food playlands made a fortune.



    • J-Dub421
      11:39 am May 13, 2016 Permalink

      A lot of horse farms in Kentucky now use bricks made of recycled tires to make the floors in their barns. It’s nice and cushy for the expensive thoroughbreds, and easy to clean.



    • ukjaybrat

      a lot of synthetic turfs use recycled tires too. better on athletes knees (well also getting slammed into the ground)



    • RealCatsFan
      11:49 am May 13, 2016 Permalink

      It’s also what is used on the modern artificial turf systems on playing fields – like the new field at Commonwealth. The tires are ground up into very fine pellets for this – almost like coffee grounds. There as been some concerns about athletes aspirating these pellets and the health implications long-term, especially in sports like football and soccer where the players are more in contact with the ground. My daughter’s volleyball team played at a facility that had laid down the volleyball courts over top of indoor soccer fields that used this stuff. They were constantly tracking the pellets onto the courts, and it got pretty slick.

    • Yeah, I forgot they’re also grinding them up for the field turf. Is that more for footing, drainage, or neither? I know a guy who played at the small college where I work, and he said the footing is great. Whatever the reason(s) the tire rubber is used, I know they can’t exactly use old fashioned dirt.

  12. RealCatsFan
    11:58 am May 13, 2016 Permalink

    I think it’s for cushioning and to a lesser extent drainage. Footing probably comes from the “grass” fibers, but I could be wrong. Maybe ask someone who has actually played sports on the stuff.
