    Back off, Chiefs!

      Jerks.

    • Matt House nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

      Well, we knew this day would come if UK starts winning. If he moves on, should the new DC be the LB coach that came from the Colts after the way Josh and company played?

    • I meant we knew it would come as far as assistants in general being pursued, but especially House after the way the D played.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:15 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I definitely don’t want to lose House, but it might hurt worse if they were coming after White or LeBlanc. Those guys have been difference makers with OLBs and DL.

      Hope we don’t lose Devonshire.



    • Realme
      10:19 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      At least we can be confident in Stoops on defense. Whoever he gets if House leaves, it will have his own character and philosophy too.



    • J-Dub421
      10:22 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I hate to lose House, or anyone on our staff really. Devonshire already signed with us and sent in his paperwork.

      I hope Gran wasn’t listening…low blow.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:27 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I would think losing a position coach would affect a player more than a coordinator. But yeah, Devonshire is signed, sealed, delivered. There’s an ear worm for ya this morning.

      good song, don’t mind that one stuck in my head.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:44 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I was listening to XM ’60’s channel one day, and the song that stuck in my head was, “Today I Met The Boy I’m Going to Marry”.
      Ouch. But, Darlene Love was great.

    A few years ago there would have been a Radio Shack within two miles.

    • Yep, yet another casualty of Amazon (and some other factors, but mostly Amazon IMO).



    • J-Dub421
      10:23 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Radio Shack was toast long before Amazon.



    • Realme
      10:25 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Radio Shack was one of those places all kinds of people went into, but you never saw anyone buying anything.



    • J-Dub421
      10:28 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I feel like Best Buy was instrumental in the demise of Radio Shack.



    • Realme
      10:31 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Better selection, nicer staff, better prices… I can see why.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:31 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Radio Shack was a great place to buy parts when I was tinkering with electronic stuff. But that’s about all it was good for. Hard to stay in business like that.

    • I agree about Best Buy, etc., so I guess Amazon drove the final nail. I read an article about Toy R Us and how they had made some bad moves before Amazon became the behemoth that was their final nail.

    • Toys-R-Us…

      BTW, my college English teacher said that it should be “Toys-R-We”. Always the grammarian he was.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:41 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      I heard that a well known rapper was going to buy Toys-R-Us and reopen it as We-Be-Toys-N-Sh1t. ๐Ÿ™‚



    • ClutchCargo

      I used to call it We R Toys and We R Babies, back when the kids were really young.

      I don’t think Matt is techno savvy.



    • CATandMONKEY

      Hanging a photo is high-tech for Matt.



    • runningunnin.454

      But he can take care of your cars.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:21 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Does anyone really think Matt could hang a picture?

    • Like I’ve said before, I’m no handyman like I wish I was, but compared to Nosewhistle I’m Bob Vila & Gas Monkey Garage.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:35 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Iam, maybe he could, but would it be straight? Using a level would be WAY beyond his pay grade. ๐Ÿ™‚

      He is trying to hammer a tack nail straight into the wall without using a hanger.

      RealCats I think he would have to rely on his girlfriend.

    • CATandMONKEY
      10:36 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      It is better but not standard(which is a sketchy, low-bar to begin with.)

      Sounding decent now at 1036.



    • Realme
      10:41 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, that’s better. Thanks.

      Still just can’t see why Wiseman is going to waste a year of college BB at that dump.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:21 am February 8, 2019 Permalink

      rg, but the other college coaches are still jealous of his NBA experience and totally intimidated by him. I could tell that’s what Cronin was saying to him when he shook his hand after his team beat Mempiss. Surprised he didn’t ask Penny for an autograph. ๐Ÿ˜€



    • J-Dub421

    With Vick taking a leave of absence from KU basketball we should be able to put a little more distance between theirs and our all time wins record.

      Iam, think it was a butthurt KU fan? I have to laugh, because if UK was actually paying players, why are they not getting all of their top recruiting targets?



    • Iamheasyouarehe

      RealCats, that’s what I found so funny, they are maybe the biggest cheats in recruiting.

      I actually know Tyra personally – went to high school with him. I don’t know him well, but he always seemed like a stand up guy. Don’t know all the background on this issue, but at least it sounds like he is trying to get in front of the issue before it blows up. The fact that I find it hard to dislike Tyra like I did Turtleneck kind of takes a little bit of flavor out of the rivalry.
