    Is KSR moving to WHAS? Announcement this afternoon for the replacement of Lachlan Complain? Maybe it’s BTI… if it it, he will suck. Just kidding.

    Any more car licks today?

    Loving all these guys coming on the show. Don’t remember that many doing the show after their announcement in previous years. Very cool…….

    This sounds like a great time for 24 Hours of Ryan Lemond Radio.

    Anyone remember the story of Jared Lorenzen’s incident during the Middle Tennessee State game. He screamed and the whole team came running.

    If you can confirm Baker and Dubose are in the video in the dorm I am kicking them off the team. That’s embarassing to not come to your guys defense, and makes the whole team look soft.

      you can’t kick someone off the team for not “joining a fight” … or a “sucker punch and run” whatever you want to call it.

    If we don’t get any of those guys, then Willis better get his butt in the gym and start working on his game. Also, Dom will need to get in there too and start working on an outside shot. I see a lot of teams packing defenders into the paint in a zone and daring us to shoot from outside.

      Hawk hit some threes this season, he just didn’t play as much as the season went on. Willis needs to add some muscle and gain confidence. He looks tentative a lot of the time.

      J-dub, Tom Leach was talking about Willis this morning, and he mentioned the confidence issue. He said that he needs to think that he “belongs” on the floor at UK alongside all the 5* players. I have also heard from someone on campus that Derek has a little hottie who is diverting a lot of his attention.

      I’m sure they all have girls throwing themselves at them. At least that was the case when I was at UK. That would explain why Derek said he felt he hadn’t been working as hard this year as he should have been though…

    Only a coward sucker punches someone like Grafree did.

    Matt, dont listen to Ryan. Marty Brennamen is the worst.

    Maybe Graffree was “sticking up for his teammate” by drilling Barker, although still a very cowardly move. We can’t play that card with our guys not backing up each other if that incident very well could have been retaliation for the UK fiasco with Scurry at the bar. Barker’s looked worse, but Scurry suffered the most damage. I still think this is a UK win. LOL

    Sam Malone is highly entertaining. This should be good.

      Serious question, maybe someone can answer this for me. Why does he have a cigar in his mouth in all of his money-making endeavors?

    • J-Dub421

      I think it’s a play on the human victory cigar thing.

    Because he’s the “victory cigar” player who comes in to finish out a game that is already won.

      Thanks Realme & J-Dub…I didn’t know, learn something new every day.

    I’ve had to miss most of the show so far because work keeps interrupting :), so I don’t know what has been said, but I don’t understand how the sucker punch wasn’t worthy of criminal charges. Maybe Drew would have had to press charges and didn’t?

    • J-Dub421
      12:00 pm April 15, 2015 Permalink

      I think he would have had to press charges. I don’t know how EKU’s coach can justify not kicking Grafree off the team. That punch was completely unprovoked.

    I’m hear these guys do press conferences, and they seem to have trouble with public speaking… but this week they have all been engaging, articulate, and very well spoken.

    • RealCatsFan

      I have been impressed all year with how articulate ALL the players on this team have been. They all seem to be very intelligent. And you don’t need a translator for them like you do for some of the UofL players – looking at you Montrezl. 🙂

    Derek Willis seems to me like he could be a Trey Lyles type player… he just needs some confidence and to be more aggressive.

    Dakari would make a helluva goalie.

      (guessing you mean in soccer)
      not really… really tall players have a disadvantage in the lower corners of the goal
