    Yes sir Clutch. No matter who it is, if this staff wants them then he’s a player with a ton of potential that can help our program. Wooo. I’ve got Elvis stuck in my head this morning! Been singing since 6:30. Lol. You have a good day brother.

      Blast from the past indeed. Football is such a numbers game, we just have to keep ’em coming and it will all work out.

    I’m having a hard time getting too worked up about anything Wake Forest, despite the coach’s desperate attempts to recruit an existing player. Yawn.

      UK is No. 1 collegiate basketball program, and also…

      I got grief for going from a private school (Asbury) to UK but the classes were noticeably more difficult at UK. I went from 4.0 barely trying to my parents giving me a “calm down, you don’t have to get all A’s” talk. Yes my parents are that great. My older brothers may have lowered the bar for me, to be fair.

      I guess we are too hard on our kids. We push them pretty hard on their grades – mainly because it can translate to scholarship money while they are in HS. When they are in college, as long as they maintain grades high enough to graduate or hold onto scholarships we don’t care if they are A’s or B’s. The big problem with kids in school today is all the distractions – especially phones / social media. (I am preaching this while typing on KSR). 🙂

      Different approaches for different personalities. I was bizarrely conscientious (back then :p ) and literally never got in trouble.

    So the BBN Jam finals. Davis / MKG vs. Walker / Anderson. I don’t know. I was watching in ’96, but didn’t understand bball all that well. So tell me what I should think. 🙂

      I haven’t really been paying attention to this, but in NBA Jam it’s pretty offense-oriented. Walker/Anderson should win.

      I’m not ready to call us Running Back U or anything, but we are building a really nice group of above average players at that position.

      I better see me some Smoke this fall?

      BTW, I missed it. Who committed?



    • Laker Cat 18

      La’Vell Wright – North Hardin Running Back



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:42 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      Is he the one who they said would be the highest rated RB commit ever?

      BTW, random thought on the Bama kid who committed the other day, who I think they said is a no-star. I understand the staff has turned several guys into much better players than what they were rated out of high school (and hopefully this kid is another Calvin Taylor, etc.), and that bodes well for the future since recruiting at UK is so tough. However, the proof is in the pudding. Look at how many 4 and 5 stars are on the Bamas, LSUs, & Georgias. You have GOT to start getting more of those guys to get to Atlanta, and to have a chance to win there. Fortunately, we ARE starting to get more of those guys. Woohoo!



    • ClutchCargo
      11:04 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      Agree, cg. I hate the argument “but look at Calvin Taylor, Josh Allen, etc.” Those guys were great, but they are also the exception. It’s awesome that our staff had that ability, just to get the ball rolling in the beginning, but you can’t depend heavily on diamonds in the rough and get it done consistently in football.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:17 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      Stoops has really raised the bar on recruiting – we are now consistently getting 4-star guys that were a rarity in the past. Yes, the next step will be to sprinkle in a few 5-star guys – especially the in-state kids. We need to find a way to keep kids like Willis away from ‘Bama and in the fold at UK.

    Will Dekel play at Douglass or will he transfer back to IMG for the season? Don’t be stunned if he chooses Baylor. He has a teammate there.

      Ryan seemed to be pretty sure it’s not UK for Crowdus.

      I’m not holding my breath on that one.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:43 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      My guess is Baylor or Oklahoma. His style seems to fit OU more than anyone else on the list…a Jeff Badet type guy.

    Random Question. Has anyone else seen Hellier on Amazon Prime? It’s a paranormal documentary based in the mountains of Kentucky. I just started it.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:37 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      Never heard of it, but I will have to check that out. I’m just getting started on “Deadwood” right now. Never watched any of the HBO original series before all this pandemic stuff, so it’s all new to me still.



    • Realme
      10:37 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      It’s been a while since Amazon gave me a prime free trial, but that would probably be the first thing I go for if they did.

      Season 1 they’re in Pike County. I think next season is in Pulaski where I’m at. I had heard they were here filming within the last year or two.

      One of my favorite shows ever was set in the mountains. Outsiders on WGN of all places. Those idiots cancelled that and the also awesome Underground way too early.



    • Laker Cat 18

      I’ve been wanting to see Outsiders.

      It was so, so good. It had that guy from SOA that plays Beta on TWD.

      ^ and Remember the Titans…

      Not sure who has it. Just put in a request at Netflix, would watch again.



    • Realme
      10:56 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

      Speaking of shows, I think Animal Kingdom is on prime. It’s really good too. Full of hot guy actors, so I might be biased.

    Never heard “Tubby Can’t Coach”. Never want to hear it again; why do they do that…hurts my ears?

    Justus out, Antigua in?

      Yes please.



    • ClutchCargo

      Doesn’t sound like Justus is going anywhere, unless I missed something when I had to step away for a few minutes there. I would take that trade, though.



    • Laker Cat 18

      Matt predicted 1-2 years left for Justus at UK.

      I’m sure he’s doing a fine job, I just miss the Antigua swagger.



  15. Laker Cat 18
    11:13 am May 6, 2020 Permalink

    I think that may be the point of the meeting. I’m thinking UK invited the team, but not Rick. Now they’re taking a team vote to see if anyone wants to be part of it.

      Matt was saying Cluster, Ryan was saying Clester and neither seemed to notice.

    I watched the W Virginia Governor’s tape. He did not say the ‘f” word. He say IF and stutters and it came out that way.
    The word would not even make sense there.



    • Realme
      12:01 pm May 6, 2020 Permalink

      ” only if they IF’n follow the guidelines… ” That doesn’t fit. I don’t think he actually said it because he’d have had an oops face after, but it’s pretty funny.



    • ClutchCargo
      12:45 pm May 6, 2020 Permalink

      As someone who has been watching a lot of Goliath, Ozark and Deadwood recently, the F word totally works there. 😉

      But I think in his written statement that he is reading, he probably wrote “if they can follow…” and then he initially skipped the word “can”, then quickly went back to correct himself. That could produce the “f-can follow” that I think it actually was.
