    “Show Thread”? More like “Slow Thread”!

      Dog days of summer.

    I’m tired of the Blackshear thing quite honestly. That’s nothing personal. If he needs time, and this is a yuge decision for him, I get it. I do believe we need him to make a serious run at #9.

    Like Clutch said on the other thread, at least we have FB recruiting giving us something to be excited about!

      We all are, and as usual, it’s the media’s fault. He’s not out there trying to get attention.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:20 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I don’t think it’s Blackshear’s fault…or his family’s. It’s all these sportswriters that are just guessing.

      Isn’t he from Florida? If so, going to UF would make some sense if he wants to be close to home, but I can’t understand why he would want to play for UT. Unless they are totally selling him on being THE MAN.



    • bouzoukiman
      10:23 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Right you all are. That wasn’t aimed at him, but I could have emphasized that a bit more.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:24 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Yep, Orlando. I figured Florida from the start; but, the experts say the Gators are out. I still wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up there.

    Staying at VT would make more sense than going to Arkingsaw.

      It’s refreshing to actually look forward to competitive football rather than the trepidation and dread of getting pounded.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:26 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Are you ready for some football? I’m thinking 8 wins.



    • J-Dub421
      10:32 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I think we win 8, but 9 is also a possibility. I’d be happy with either (a bit more happy with 9 though).



    • ClutchCargo
      10:35 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Does 8 wins include a bowl win or bowl loss? I’m dreaming bigger and think another 10 win season is entirely possible.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:37 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I’m hoping for 8 plus the bowl win; hard to say, though, with no idea about the opponent.



    • J-Dub421
      10:39 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Oh, I was talking 8-9 wins in the regular season.

      His dad must have taught him that. Nick Roush posted it on KSR last night. Too funny & cute! Watch until the end.

      Thanks a lot, cg. I watched that a few times in a row and now my face hurts from smiling so hard!

      You know last season, could have ended in only one loss. Take the OT defeat away at TAMU and that UT debacle out of the equation UK could have easily been 11-1 going into the bowl season.
      I am thinking we do at least 9 maybe 10. We had a lot of great pkayers on the squad last year, and we have a lot coming back…
      I think it will be a great and fun year for UK football.

    If this article is true, it sounds like cell phone coverage in rural areas might get worse instead of better…

      That parkway can’t be more boring than most of Indiana.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:36 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Realme, southern Indiana close to the river is a scenic drive for the most part. But if you head north on I65, it is pretty flat and boring. Not quite as bad as driving to Kansas, but close.



    • Realme

      Never had to go to Kansas, thankfully.

      I went to a friend’s wedding in Kansas. I hope to never go back.

    I never was that much of a Michael Jackson fan. Some of his earlier stuff was OK, before he got really weird. I like Prince a lot more than MJ. Prince was actually a great musician and songwriter, and apparently he could really play basketball!

    MJ is so opinionated. I was for UL in the ’80 championship against ucla. BTW ucla’s appearance in the tournament was vacated…little late, I think.



    • Realme
      11:07 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I’m with him on the pick a team thing, but will make exceptions for people like that caller with a good reason. It’s just so fun to “hate” Louisville, I feel sorry for people missing out on the rivalry.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:08 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      “Can’t be a die hard UK fan and cheer for UL”. I will put my UK fandom up against MJ…any day.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:14 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      My parents had UL season basketball tickets, so I went to many games when they had some available and we were looking for something to do. While I didn’t participate in the team chants and whatnot, if someone made a great play and the crowd jumped up and cheered, I would too. I guess I just appreciate basketball, although I would never be able to stomach cheering in any way for teams like dook, UNCheat, Kansas, UT or UConn. I know for many UL is a bitter rival, but I have much more disdain for our out-of-state rivals.

      Now when Petrino was coaching UL football – whole ‘nother thing!



    • Realme
      11:14 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I’ll thank you to keep the show thread uncontaminated from any cheering for Louisville. Gross.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:15 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I won’t judge anyone’s fandom unless they are one of those weirdos with dual allegience to, say, UK basketball and UT football. GTFOH with that stuff!



    • runningunnin.454

      Wow, three moderations in one thread…I give up.

      There’s one innocuous word in there the modbot doesn’t like.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:28 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Realme, can I counter that by saying that I still get some diabolical satisfaction in seeing them lose? 😉



    • Realme
      11:31 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I guess. I’m a little disappointed in all of you. 😛



    • J-Dub421
      11:32 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      I didn’t even cheer for U of L after the Kevin Ware injury. I just cannot cheer for Louisville. Ever.



    • Realme
      11:37 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Thank you Jdub! And she HAS a reason y’alls. Speaking of Louisville, I saw a tweet the the other day where a Card fan was excited for FB season, because their new coach what’s his name is the next Dabo.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:46 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      It’s not like I was jumping up and down cheering or anything. But if someone made a great play, I will acknowledge it. At least I didn’t wear their colors. 🙂



    • Realme
      11:54 am June 25, 2019 Permalink

      Okay, you’re at a game of theirs for some reason. Do you cheer for a great play now, in your non red attire?

    I like when Matt makes his summer / pre-season predictions, and then after the fact only points out the occasions when he was right.

    Not only can the ncaa keep California schools out of the tournament, they can pull the tournament from all their cities, like they did with N. Carolina.
    Eh, a Cali school has only won the ncaa tournament but once in the last 44 years.

    I’m no prude, but I am kind of tired of the level of vulgarity that is just accepted nowadays. The f-bomb just doesn’t have the same shock effect because it is just tossed around flippantly anymore. And you can’t turn on the radio without having to endure endless ads about boner pills. I kind of wince at what is on TV nowadays that my daughters are exposed to. They show stuff on network TV now that used to be reserved for R-rated movies. It’s really kind of sad.

      I don’t generally swear a lot in my life, except when I’m driving or watching UK games. During those times I could make everyone on this showthread blush.
