    I’m cheap. I feel like $30 is too much for a t-shirt.

      Depends what’s on it; I’ll buy one that has UK 2022 National Champion.

      Probably most of this is directed at kids; how many adults would want to wear a t-shirt with a 20 y/o college player on it.

      The sad thing is that most T-shirts today are made out of crappy, thin material and they shrink up and start looking crappy after just a few washings. I have a few T-shirts that I really like and have taken care of that still look pretty good after 15 or 20 years. Mrs RCF makes fun of me and my “old” shirts – I prefer “vintage”. ๐Ÿ™‚ I doubt if I will ever get any kind of longevity like that out of the shirts I have bought in the past 5 years.

      I would wear it. If I caught it on sale.

      RCF my husband laughs at how many sleep tshirts I have with full on holes. First, they have good sports memories, second they are super comfy after a jillion washings.

      I’m happy for our current players. Must suck to have graduated in the last few years and watch this all go down.

      Funny that Dontaie was the first; I would buy one if it said “put me in coach”.

      That might get him the Jorts treadmill punishment.

      Realme, the Mrs has begun to sneak some of my shirts into the “rag drawer” out in the garage. I have tried to retrieve a few, but then she just makes them disappear altogether the next time they go in the wash. #littlebattles

      Is it ok if I cry a little when I pull out one of my favorite volleyball league championship shirts from 1997 and have to use it to wipe up oil in the garage?

    • RealCatsFan

      Speaking of Jorts, he could have had some epic t-shirts made up. They could depict him locked in a bathroom stall (as an ad for a janitorial service) or chasing the team bus. Or best of all, an ad for a dodgeball league!

      Iโ€™d spend $30 on a shirt, but it would have to be UKbranded, not just one playerโ€™s gear. Thatโ€™s pretty expensive for a player who will only be here a few years!

    Man, how do you forget Sydney’s name?

      I think he was referring to Masai Russell.

      Okay, good. I heard our hurdler and her and thought he forgot who SM was.

      I was confused too. I had to look her up.

    HaHa, the Marshall Henderson one was funny! He could have made a mint off of royalties from that infamous GIF when he shook his jersey at the Auburn fans. ๐Ÿ˜€

    The one UK player who missed out on the NIL deal was Cousins. He could have made a TON here. With the “Call Me” thing especially.

      Big Cuz was a walking social media meme.

      I bought a #15 shirt the day after they lost in the tourney because I was so sad. Didn’t have his name on it of course. Did actually wear that out enough to have to pitch it.

      Benny, Josh, Jojo, Stephen Johnson. All shirts I would have bought for football. Can guys go in together and profit off of Big Blue Wall shirts?

    Wondering when some of these guys will be lawyering up to go after anyone trying to use their likeness without their permission…

    Or hiring people to scrub the internet looking for people using their likeness without permission?

    It might become difficult for KSR to post content in the future.

      Yeah, but the guy was winning the debate…and was appreciated, lol.

    Sounds like we need video of Matt doing this float therapy.

    • RealCatsFan

      When they are talking about the random dudes just throwing their babies into a pool to sink or swim, well, let’s just say I would never recommend that. ๐Ÿ™‚ But we did the infant water survival class with our firstborn when she was about 9 months old. They would gradually introduce the babies to the water, teaching them how to roll over onto their back and float. That would progress to actually teaching them how to kick to the edge of the pool and grab onto the side. But they would NEVER just toss a kid into the pool.

      Even if it does work sometimes, no need to be that harsh. It’s a baby!

      But I do support trying that method on Matt, hee haw.
