    I’m more excited to watch these guys in the NFL than I ever am about watching our bball guys in the NBA.

      Same, but I’m pretty bummed about Benny to the Steelers. Yeah yeah, I know it’s a great fit for him. But I’m being selfish here, I hate the Steelers. Can’t root for him. Don’t wish anything bad on him, but can’t root for his team and therefore kinda can’t root for him. Or maybe I can root for him to rack up yards but not score TDs lol

      yes, unfortunately!

      This is Bud’s 5th year w them, they exercised his 5th year option. I’d like to see him go elsewhere as a free agent next year but if the Steelers are smart they’ll lock him up with another contract.

      I don’t have any pro football hate, so I’ll root for them.

      I’m a really interested fan of NFL football, but I don’t have one team that I follow exclusively. My fandom is almost more influenced by fantasy football than anything else.

      Well my Cowboys have Randall Cobb this year. Woo!

      Couldn’t believe all the Steeler hate over the weekend. That didn’t bother me; but, we have a couple of new trolls that were bashing Benny; and, I got a little nasty with one of them…hope none of you saw that; probably said some things I shouldn’t…ha ha.



    • JTHinton
      12:33 pm April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Rg, I’m probably too late … I absolutely HATE anything to do with the Steelers but I cannot understand how Benny deserves any of that hatred β€” he doesn’t control where he gets picked!



    • RealCatsFan
      10:51 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I really only follow pro sports casually if at all, so it really doesn’t matter much to me where they go, as long as they have a decent shot at success on the field or on the court. I was pretty bummed when Tim Couch got stuck on such a crummy team as the Browns, however. It was like, “hey Tim, you had an amazing college career, your prize is playing for a team where even the name refers to a turd, and you get to be abused by opposing pass rushers and run for your life.”



    • StillBP
      11:03 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      wish I had seen it, rg! LOL! I’m not surprised at the Steeler hate, though. It’s easy to hate them! My team is well hated too. To make it even easier for me to hate them, most of the Louisville fans I know are also Steeler fans…double the hate!

      Ha ha runnin, had to go back a check it out, good job! I follow players more than any particular team logo, I like watching the best players unless they’re with the Seahawks, Ravens or Buccaneers, Colts and (no offense to anyone) but have a hard time understanding how any fan can stick with the Bengals all these years. Love watching Brees, who got screwed the last two seasons.



    • J-Dub421

      How can anyone bash Benny??



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      11:36 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Probably easy for a UL fan.



    • StillBP
      11:43 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I think the bashing Benny person was just a troll. If it’s the one I’m thinking of, he kept saying how Damien Harris was a great guy. Not saying Damien isn’t, just saying that person was clearly trying to push buttons.



    • J-Dub421
      11:44 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I’m sure Mississippi State fans, and South Carolina fans, etc. don’t like Benny either, since he crammed it down their throats for three years. However, how can you call yourself a UK fan and not like Benny? I love Benny.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:53 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I’ll bet that troll bounced right off like a would-be tackler. It would take a whole team of trolls working together to bash Benny.

    That girlfriend thing is the first Gunnar to Ohio State explanation that makes sense to me.

      Is it my turn to comment at 10:22 or yours? πŸ™‚

      Ha ha I went with 10:23 since BP took the 10:21.

    10:20 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

    The guys are already bringing some weird sports takes. Gunnar transferring is not a good thing, no matter how you try to spin it. Somebody is going to have to really step up and be ready to go as a backup.

      Do you guys agree that Bowden would be the go to if Terry was out for a brief period of time?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:25 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Bowden is kind of the Randall Cobb of this team, so I wouldn’t be surprised, especially if something happened to Terry early in the season.



    • StillBP
      10:38 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Def don’t want to see Bowden behind center, unless it’s just briefly like Matt Roark.



    • J-Dub421
      10:40 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I’m just hoping and praying that nothing happens to Terry. Everyone cross your fingers, cross your toes, cross everything.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:40 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      So Bowden is going to lead us to victory over UT? I’ll take it!



    • Realme
      10:40 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      All I can think about is that one time he threw one of the worst passes ever, but I know he played it before so he might be a safer option. Be nice if one of the youngsters came out fighting though.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:46 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      I remember that, RM. He looked like he wanted to reach out and pull that pass back for a do over. Maybe him having his gloves on was a factor. With his ability to see the field and think a step ahead of everybody else, I have no doubt he could do it.

      There’s a guy who lives about a quarter mile from my house who looks a LOT like that dude. I am big on getting to know as many of the people who live around me as I possibly can. Not only to make friends, but also to know which ones to keep an eye on.

    I’m a fan of John Young already. Just listening to him talk, you can tell he is definitely all in on UK. He wasn’t convinced by anyone to choose the Cats, it’s in his blood.

      I quit listening during the GOT stuff. Then I put the earbud back in and he was talking about some trash reality show and declared that “women would like it because…” so I had to tune out again.



    • J-Dub421
      11:38 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Also how is Matt going to say he doesn’t like superhero movies or Game of Thrones, and only likes “real people” when he loves the super fake fantasy world of wrestling?

    Raisins will ruin a perfectly good trail mix or cookie. I feed them to birds.

      There’s not a lot worse food-wise than thinking you have a chocolate chip cookie and biting down to realize you’ve been betrayed with raisins.

    Yeah, it was sad when Rodney Dent tore his ACL, but still not nearly as sad for me as when Nerlens tore his. Part of it was because Nerlens was the heart of that team, he was such a good kid, and he had so much potential at the next level. Plus, we knew we would only get him for a year, so that made it even worse. That was perhaps literally the most devastating injury in the history of UK Basketball. There are a few others that come close – Derek Anderson, Bogans, Bowie, etc., but that one just sucked the air out of the UK fanbase.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:57 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, Nerlens going down was pretty bad, but Anderson and Bogans were more crucial, in my mind. Those two teams were that close to having a great chance to win it all if not for their star player being out.



    • J-Dub421
      11:59 am April 29, 2019 Permalink

      It was awful watching the rest of our players carry Nerlens off the court screaming in pain.
