    Do we have any vets here? If so, happy day and thank you for serving.

      Thanks to you and all the veterans for your service, rg. My favorite veteran headed to the great golf course in the sky exactly ten days and two years ago.

      Yep, sorry for your loss; only two of us left off my 8 man team.

    So if Hinshaw steps in and crushes it this Saturday, does Gran become the Wally Pipp of UK football assistant coaches?



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:28 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I think we have to be careful comparing Georgia and Vandy.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:33 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I don’t judge any OC based on what happened against a great defense like UGA. It’s more the body of work when it comes to Gran. And it would be unfair for us to think Hinshaw is the answer if he has success vs Vandy, but that’s what we fans do!



    • runningunnin.454
      10:36 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Didn’t Florida light up Georgia for 44? Maybe not such a great defense.



    • Realme
      10:36 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Hinshaw is the QB coach. Do we see qbs coming here and getting better? I guess I’m saying I don’t expect him to crush anything.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:38 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I think he’s also the Co-OC in addition to QB coach. But yeah, I don’t see anything getting crushed anytime soon.

      Seeing as how the prevailing opinion (which I believe is correct) is that Stoops keeps tight reins on the style of offense, I don’t expect to see too much difference, but what do I know?



    • runningunnin.454
      10:46 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I think you’re on to something; the first step is realizing you have a problem!

      I still find it interesting that Eddie was running an air raid type offense at UC. That wasn’t the typical Tuberville style until he hired Neal Brown away from Troy and brought him to Texas Tech. I guess Senator Elect Tuberville knew he needed to do that in the Big 12 since everyone was airing it out over there, and continued it when he went to UC.

      BTW, how crazy is it that we continue to try to claw our way up the SEC ladder and UC is (cough cough) top 10? I know, I know, they don’t play in the SEC, and that’s a more than valid point, but still…



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:05 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I forgot to add that of course he followed the pirate at Tech, so he had to have an OC to run the talent that was already in house I suppose. I think Leach will be fine at State once he gets his style of players there.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:23 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I hope the Pirate does well at MSU. He is a fun addition to the coaching ranks.

      His pressers are great when he gets kooky giving advice on wedding showers/receptions and all kinds of other off the subject stuff.

    If UK-Vandy goes on, surely our game gets flexed to a better tv/time slot.

    I’m worried about how basketball is going to go with all the COVID stuff. And it’s going to suck even worse if we end up having as good a team as we think we will.



    • Realme
      10:23 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Yup. Not looking like we will get anything that feels like a real season.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:23 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      It’s not looking good.



    • JTHinton
      10:38 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      It’s looking bad; 2 weeks off for just one Covid case is ridiculous. Lots of false positives and how hard is it to isolate players/re-test and confirm that the rest are negative



    • runningunnin.454
      10:42 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Yep, saw Trevor Lawrence Saturday; and, he didn’t look sick. I think I saw S. Dakota had 50% positive, and Kansas is way up there, too. Kentucky’s is only 7%, right?

      I thought they’d be lining them all up for a shot now that Pfizer announced a vaccine a week after the election. πŸ˜‰

      My kid is signed up for full travel AAU volleyball this year, and I can’t see any way in hell that we can have a normal season with the huge tournaments at convention centers. The season cranks up after the first of the year, so maybe (hopefully) things will settle down a little by then.

      Of course, after Inauguration Day it will all go away, right? πŸ˜‰

      Yeah, weird stuff going on. I didn’t click on one of the plane pictures on the captcha and it let me through anyway. I’m sure the red Corvette in one of the pictures would fly too.

      Me too. This is how it started when I couldn’t comment at all several months ago.

    Can anybody identify the bird in the KSBar office by sound? πŸ™‚

      Cardinal?



    • Realme
      10:44 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Sounds like that broad breasted thrasher RCF mentioned the other day.

      I am okay with bird songs, but didn’t hear this one. Probably just a house sparrow though.

      You mean besides the cuckoo?



    • RealCatsFan
      11:03 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I think it’s the same bird that was in the background of the Turtle’s campaign commercial when he was posting up some distorted out-of-context quote by McGrath.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:03 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I still say it’s a cardinal just waiting to pounce on Matt.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:19 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      My daughter used to call sparrows “Home Depot birds” because they are always flying around inside of them. Those and starlings seem to be their mascot.



    • Realme
      11:24 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      Yep, I love it when they find and break into the bird seed! Wonder what they’d like to eat at KSBar. Not sure even they would eat beer cheese.
      I follow a subreddit called what’s this bird, and literally every day someone posts because they can’t figure out their rare bird that’s not in their books is a starling smh.



    • RealCatsFan

      Hrmph, starlings – another imported invasive species…



    • Realme

      Yes, and they’re total jerks. It’s all the fault of whatever idiot thought all the species mentioned in Shakespeare should be brought into Central Park.

      Or that mini-car racing they used to always show late at night after the 30 minute Sportscenter back in the 80s.

    Matt would get a deferment for law school if he had grown up during the draft. If not, he would be on continual KP duty peeling potatoes.

    But I guess that’s better than bone spurs. πŸ˜‰

      Yep, the Army had lawyers; but, now they have to take them into combat with them so they know what they can and can’t do. You know, we have never had an enemy that abided by the Geneva Convention.

      I’m trying to imagine him trying to survive boot camp, or to just stand there and not argue with a drill sgt. Climb onto a tank? Wear something besides a hoodie? Point a gun the right direction?

      I mock, but I found teen missionary boot camp hard. Swing on a rope? Climb a tire mountain? SLEEP IN A TENT SURROUNDED BY SPIDERS?!?!?!!

    The McCoys were whupped in that feud; old man McCoy lost 5 children in the feud; I think 3 sons at once. He died penniless, and Anse Hatfield was wealthy. I think all Hatfield lost in the feud was a brother, and an uncle. Of course one nephew was hanged…for something that he didn’t actually do.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:40 am November 11, 2020 Permalink

      I saw a documentary once that talked about that feud. One historian talked about a reporter going to their area to interview the families years after the feud (I don’t remember how long after). One day the reporter wanted to get a photo of both families together, so they were about to take it, and he or she said “Wait a minute. Where are your guns?” So, they all had to go home and get their guns except for whoever may have still lived in the house where they were at the time. It shows you how much the media is into things that aren’t real or current. Heaven forbid that the pic look like the families no longer shoot each other!

    I don’t care what they do to the floor this year, but they have gone so many more years than normal without a real uniform redesign. Has to be pure stubbornness.
