    It’s time to decriminalize bad putting. Society needs to get him the golf lessons he needs instead of crowding our sports bar jails with non-violent offenders. Besides, I think he was framed. If you listen to the audio, Matt clearly misleads him as to which way the putt will break and he does this multiple times.

      Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak
      Somewhere in this town
      See me and the boys, we don’t like it
      So we’re getting up and going down

    • So I signed my name on number 24, hey!
      Yeah the judge said, “Boy, just one more…
      We’re gonna throw your (butt) in the city joint”
      Looked me in the eye, said, “You get my point?”
      I said Yea!, Oh yea!

      Everybody in the whole cell block was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

      Breaking the law, breaking the law
      Breaking the law, breaking the law
      Breaking the law, breaking the law

      The first thing I remember knowing
      Was a lonesome whistle blowing
      And a young’un’s dream of growing up to ride
      On a freight train leaving town
      Not knowing where I’m bound
      And no one could change my mind but Mama tried

      Just barely out of school
      He came from the edge of town
      Fought like a switchblade
      So no one could take him down, oh no
      He had no money
      No, no good at home
      He walked the streets a soldier
      And he fought the world alone and now it’s
      18 and life, you got it
      18 and life, you know
      Your crime is time and it’s
      18 and life to go
      18 and life, you got it

      Here’s how good that commitment was: other fan bases were accusing our coaches of cheating.

    10:11 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

    It’s kind of odd for me to say that I’m actually getting more excited about our football recruiting class than our basketball class! When is the last time you read that Kentucky had landed a five star guard and it is not the basketball team we are talking about? πŸ™‚



    • Realme
      10:13 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Same. I am trying to convince myself that just because some star commits in the past have decommitted, doesn’t mean this guy will. If we could keep him, we can probably keep everyone and have a record class.



    • J-Dub421
      10:14 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Lol! I have enough excitement to go around. I am excited for football and basketball. (I will admit I have more anxiety around actually signing the football players, since they seem to decomit more. Once dudes commit in basketball, they rarely decommit.)



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:16 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      It may help that one of his best friends plays for KY.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:18 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Yep, and the basketball players who decommit… well, you probably don’t want those guys anyway. I feel like we have hit the football recruiting lottery and I am super excited about the direction the program is heading.



  4. RealCatsFan
    10:18 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

    I think Matt should put up something like $5000 for bail on Ryan, and they can put a jar at KSBar and maybe an online donation site. If the bail amount is raised to spring Ryan out of jail, the money goes to charity.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:19 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      And Amanda should have had a couple of practice putts – she had it lined up but hit a rocket and it rimmed out.



    • Realme
      10:21 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Agree, I already texted Matt about the charity bail thing, and Amanda should have got more than one chance.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:23 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      They should have had Matt try a putt as well…



    • Realme
      10:25 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Can you imagine Matt trying to boss everyone around from behind those bars? He would lose his ^%$# in about 30 minutes.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:26 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      There is no way Matt would risk that kind of embarrassment. He seems like one of those people who can dish it out but can’t take it.



    • J-Dub421
      10:32 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Sounds like they’re going to do RCF’s charity bail suggestion.



    • Iamheasyouarehe
      10:35 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      At least the Somerset soup kitchen made $5000 last night on missed putts.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:36 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      I will only ask for a small cut of the proceeds for my idea. πŸ™‚

    • Clutch, that is the most apt description of Matt I’ve seen here in a while, and that includes many of the tiffs he’s had with other sportswriters/bloggers, most notably Marc Maggard. He constantly piled on that guy.



  5. Iamheasyouarehe
    10:32 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

    Seems to me Matt spending a night in jail with you would make matters even worse.



    • RealCatsFan

      They should lock Matt in jail with Kentucky Joe and sell tickets to watch.

  7. ClutchCargo
    10:44 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

    I think Rogers will stick with this commitment. He has a lot of solid reasons why he chose UK, and all the big boys have already been recruiting him. It’s not like he is a guy who suddenly blew up at summer camps.

    I wish people wouldn’t say “I don’t think there is any doubt.” If there is no doubt, there is no reason to think anything about it, so the phrase makes no sense.

      Oddly enough, cg, I actually like that saying. It’s a good approach to life. Your situation is what it is, and thinking about it in terms of good, bad, fair or unfair does nothing to help you deal with the reality of it. Having said all of that, a lot of people just say it when they can’t think of anything else to say. lol

      Is he crazy? Not much worse than losing your freedom.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:25 am May 21, 2019 Permalink

      Depends on the individual, I guess. Some people don’t value freedom that much. There have been many people who, after being released from prison, intentionally commit a crime again to get back in prison because they like the security of knowing what is going to happen every day. And of course the security of having a bed provided to them and 3 meals served.

      Prison might work well for those who are extremely lazy and want zero responsibility, that’s the only explanation I can come up with.
