KSR, Live from Coach Cal’s Fantasy Camp (Friday Show Thread)

Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond are at the Joe Craft Center today for a live broadcast from the first day of John Calipari’s third annual fantasy camp. Matt elected not to play this year so he will be on for the full two hours, discussing the scene and commentating on the action. Who knows, maybe he can reel in a good guest or two to help out.

(And the power just went out. This should be interesting.)

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    I loved Cal calling into Mike Francesa’s show with a fake voice! He should have called in as Rob Roy, or whatever fake name he uses to book hotel rooms, or at the very least used John Short as his name. We need to get Chester to call in his show today and tell Mike Francesa what he said yesterday was a bunch of bullcrap!

    Prayers for the Campbellsville firefighters that were injured in the Bucket Challenge.

    I call out Uncle Matt and Ryan Lemond to do this challenge on the air performed by Kyle Tucker and Alan Cutler or Chris Kross.

      I don’t know him or her, but so what? Who cares? I am a female and I am not concerned how my boyfriend looks. Maybe you should look in the mirror.

      If you don’t care how your boyfriend looks then you don’t have standards. You’re what’s wrong with our culture, the complete lack of self respect. Go eat a salad sweetie.

      Not overweight for one. The typical Hollywood style woman and man. There is a reason we value their appearance. All should strive to look like that.

      Yeah because EVERYONE looks like that. You have a lot to learn. Everyone isn’t perfect. You will eventually get old and won’t be perfect. Just saying.

    Kentucky fans know more about X’s and O’s than Matt thinks. So many of us have lived basketball and that means played, coached, or had a kid very much involved in the sport.

      Your name implies what u are, u do know better than 90% of Kentucky’s power currently comes from coal, right? Thus with Obama’s nation reforming expect more outages in the future that & if one can even afford to have a luxury like electricity. Hey u guys enjoy living in grass mud huts, your already doing it anyways, right, so shouldn’t be a hard transition, this new bold liberal frontier. πŸ˜‰

    Trying to listen to KSR and read through the website but this video automatically starts playing so now I can’t hear the live show and differentiate one from the other because of this stupid video playing at the same time. Come on guys! The automatic play videos blow.

      We have been competitive enough to win 6 games in previous years. Competitive is losing to eventual national champion Auburn in 2010 by 3 points. I’m tired of trying to be competitive. I want to win.

      Don’t worry. The UK Basketball only fans will just jump on the Bama football bandwagon like they always do. I can’t stand that. If you’re gonna root for us in basketball, support our football team as well. What’s really pathetic is none of these UK Basketbll/”Bama Football fans” can’t name 10 players on the a ma football team.

      I’m sorry but being fat is a major character flaw that shows you have no respect for yourself or your family. I’ve actually hired a less qualified candidate because I don’t want to hire an obese person. They cost me more in sick days and insurance.



    • Ted

      I may be an a hole but at least I’m not fat. Compassion is overrated and gets In the way of success.

    How good of a coach is Rick Pitino if he is 1-6 against a coach that is not a good x’s & o’s coach? He must be a very bad coach just using that standard.



  20. blue dub
    10:50 am August 22, 2014 Permalink

    Regarding coaches that have been to multiple final fours not being x and o coach, Guy Lewis was not a great X and O coach and he went to 5 final fours, Never should have lost to NC State in 83, went to a slow down offense with Phi Slamma Jamma and let Woflpack back in the game. Coach Cal is a great and X and O coach, there is no doubt it.

    UK fans who do not think the program is improving are clearly fans who cannot comprehend what they are watching on the field. All they see is wins and losses, and do not see everything else that goes in to the game. If you couldn’t see the tremendous improvements that last year’s squad made, I don’t know what to tell ya’.
