    This would be a good show for matt to announce he’s whether he’s running for senate or not.

      10:23 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Once he announces, he can’t talk about his future opponents (McGrath, then McConnell) as if he’s just media anymore. He’d lose his platform.

      I still think the U.S. Senate is not an entry level office; should run for mayor, or a state position. Of course, if he runs the show will suffer.
      I really don’t understand why anyone would want the grief they’re going to get.



    • UkChubbs

      I would generally agree but the president had no experience either. Career politicians like Mitch aren’t a good thing either.

      He won’t run this time.
      I think Matt has his sights set on Governor in 2023.
      A bachelor governor?

      He does have a serious girlfriend now. Could certainly marry by then.

    There’s a dude named Dick Tamer? Seriously? Sounds like one of the ED commercials that run on this station. πŸ˜€

      Local pharmacy was burglarized last week, and all they took was the little blue pills; police are looking for three hardened criminals.

      Shouldn’t that be a stripper’s name?

      I remember when we had US Representative Dick Armey, that name always conjured up an interesting image in my demented mind. πŸ™‚

      I don’t want to get too blue here, but I had heard a rumor of this man existing where I live, but people make things like that up. Then one day, I’m standing in a friend’s office, a man walks in, and my friend says “CG (okay, she used my real name), this is ____ Short”. All I could think was “He DOES exist!”.

      I will say no more.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:39 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      BTW, he is a realtor, and yes, he has his name on his sign on his vehicle. They say any marketing/ advertising is good advertising I guess, and being in sales he apparently lives by that motto.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:43 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Ha! I know a guy who goes by Shorty Cox.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:45 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      I’ll never understand why, if you have a name that lends itself to that type of pun, you don’t go with “Richard”, or “Rick”. πŸ™‚ My all time favorite was NASCAR driver Dick Trickle. He wore that name as a challenge, and I would pity the fool who would giggle at his name in his presence. I used to love seeing video of him lighting up a cigarette while under the caution flag in his race car. Why he never got the sponsorship of Viagra I will never understand.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:47 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      ^ Maybe Depends would have been a solid backup plan for a sponsorship.

    So next topic is complain about Cal? That won’t get the negative bleeps going or anything.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:27 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Certainly will stoke our buddy, Mashburn fan; the guy is like a one string banjo.



    • J-Dub421
      10:41 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Again, who are we going to get that’s better? The vampire is never leaving Duke, which seems to be who these schmucks want.



    • Realme
      10:46 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      I tuned out. It’s not that I think Cal shouldn’t be criticized, I totally agree with RCF’s comment a few down from here, for example. It’s that I don’t care to listen to the same complaints we’ve heard 8,000 times in list form. Do an extremely lame food bracket or something (just kidding πŸ™‚ ).



    • runningunnin.454
      10:47 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Egad, I certainly don’t want Coach Nosferatu; every time they interview him on TV, I think of that movie, “Interview with the Vampire”.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:37 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      I’m glad someone besides me likes the “Coach Nosferatu”. Of course I also like “Count K”.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:38 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Or “Kount K”.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:42 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Can I take credit for the “Count K” thingy? πŸ™‚ I need to photoshop a picture of him on the front of a box of Count Chocula cereal. πŸ˜€

    So last night I saw the video (I missed it when it was first posted) on KSR about Kalil Whitney and his signing ceremony at his elementary (or middle?) school. He seems like a really good dude and I’m glad he’s a CAT!!!

    And oh yeah, UK was his dream program BTW, and he stuck to that. Apparently he had not broadcast that until after he committed though.



    • J-Dub421
      10:47 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      He does look like he’ll be really good. This group seems to be getting along well early on too, which is always good.



    • Realme
      10:53 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      They’re going to be extra fun to watch. Can’t wait.

      I’m done with basketball expectations after getting overly impressed by last year’s Bahamas exhibition. I’m just going to focus on enjoying football and know the basketball team will at least be very good, like always.



    • Realme
      11:26 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      For sure, no expectations, just predicting fun personalities.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:32 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      My comment was more about the young man he is. It was very touching. His teachers from bygone days were hugging him. Also, a writer from another UK sports site (Sea of Blue I think) said he was worried as a fan when Whitney delayed his signing, but he was actually a bit emotional talking about what a good kid Kahlil is for why he delayed it.

      BTW, 9 times out of 10 I am sure I will forget and leave the H out of his first name. Haha.



    • RealCatsFan
      3:21 pm July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Sounds like he will be a lot like D’Aaron Fox – who went out of his way for the kid at his school who had a disability and was a huge UK fan. Again – Cal gets quality human beings AND great players!



  5. RealCatsFan
    10:26 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

    Meth gators in Tennessee? Sounds like something that should be on “Florida Man” instead.

    Along the lines of what was being discussed under the Dick Tamer heading above, what if people start flushing their little blue pills?



    • ClutchCargo
      10:30 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Easy. UT fans get taller.

    • runningunnin.454
      10:42 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      They’re certainly alienating a lot of potential sponsors. Drew should watch out…Burger King now has tacos.



    • J-Dub421
      10:46 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Everything I’ve read about Burger King’s tacos says they’re gross. Either way, McDonald’s is the most consistent fast food place by my estimation.



  7. RealCatsFan
    10:41 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

    I agree with Matt about Baker not playing in the Auburn game, but I also think he should have played EJ or Nick in that game. I wonder if he actually gets any feedback from his assistants, and if he actually listens to them if he does.



    • J-Dub421
      10:44 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Cal listens to his assistants. Then he does what he wants.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:44 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, I don’t like embarrassing players on the side line; that’s what the locker room is for. On the other hand, No 1 rule is, “don’t foul a three point shooter”.
      And, then Auburn did the same thing against Virginia, and it cost them.



  8. RealCatsFan
    10:54 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

    Do they have a sign up for Captain Suntan?



  9. runningunnin.454

    Oregon is actually beautiful; but, if I’m a ball player I’m not going there; the majority of the country won’t see you play.
    Kansas is ugly, and it’s rumored that one of the portals to Hell is in Stull, Kansas…look it up.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:03 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      rg, I would venture that another portal is located in Washington DC.



    • runningunnin.454

      No doubt.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:09 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

      And of course all of us UK fans know that there is another one in Durham, NC. πŸ™‚



  10. J-Dub421
    11:17 am July 16, 2019 Permalink

    Yes, there are a lot of morons in our fanbase who think Cal is only interested in getting guys drafted. Anyone who doesn’t think Cal is trying like hell to win the title every year is a fool.
