    Ironic that Tennessee will sell alcohol for the first time at the game with the BYU Fightin’ Mormons.



    • RackEmWillie
      10:04 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I love that. And it makes me extremely happy to think about that environment.

      I’m sure they’ll serve Sanka & Sprite.



    • RealCatsFan

      So what fan base would be worse – UT football fans with alcohol or UL fans?



    • J-Dub421
      10:54 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      C. All of the above.

    When do we expect some Xavier Peters news? That’s all I really want!

      Waiting, waiting, waiting. I’m going to try to suspend my disdain for that 4 letter organization, and hope.

      Yeah too bad we can’t just expect them to do what’s right.



    • RackEmWillie
      10:15 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I won’t be surprised with either side of the decision. They seemingly make it okay for whatever random reasons, and even when distance doesn’t matter. But, I could see them picking this specific case to use as a “see, we don’t approve every transfer! It’s a delicate process and shouldn’t be taken lightly!”



    • J-Dub421
      10:15 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Multiple other players have transferred for less valid reasons and already gotten approval. I really loathe the NCAA sometimes.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:46 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      They have that clause in their decision making process that says that every decision that involves UK gets a big NO.

    Mike Francesa can eat a bowl of dicks.

    The achilles injury was worse; if anybody can do it…Boogie can.



  5. Realme
    10:14 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

    I wouldn’t call a major injury to the nastiest Louisville fan a blessing. That senile old tool is the worst.

    I wish I was at the show today. They’re maybe ten minutes from my office.

      Next summer I’m going to try to take some time off and head up for a remote. I HAVE to!



    • J-Dub421
      10:29 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I have been to one. It was a lot of fun. I was switching jobs, and took a day off to give myself a 3 day weekend before beginning the new job. There just happened to be a remote in Louisville on my day off, so I went.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:32 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Same. I commented on this below. 🙁



    • RealCatsFan
      10:33 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      And the Blind Squirrel is a great place, and they have Woo in the house. Would love to get a picture with him to show my kids – they were in awe of him when he showed up at our church about 8 years ago. Don’t think they had ever seen a human that big up to that point. 🙂

    Hey, I didn’t like that “How BBN Are You” thing. I scored squat. Yeah, I’ve been to games at Stoll Field and Memorial Coliseum; but, I’ve never been to games at Rupp and Commonwealth/Kroger.
    I know, but work work work and distance.
    They needed some ten point questions,
    1. Have you ever destroyed a TV after a UK loss. 2. Have you ever destroyed a Christmas tree after a UK loss.
    I know, I know; but these were in the auld lang syne days of my youth. Now I only destroy coffee cups, I’m growing.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:24 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      The TV only counts if it was the latest greatest most expensive at the time. In the days of your youth that would have had to be one of those consoles that weighed 5000 pounds. Now it would have to be the latest greatest giant 8K TV.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:25 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      However, for the coffee cups, just keep a supply from Dollar Tree on hand so you don’t waste too much money on that.



    • Realme
      10:25 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, I obsess about UK more than anyone I know, and also scored very low.



    • J-Dub421
      10:31 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, they had some really bogus stuff on there. I only scored an 11, and I dare anyone to question my fandom.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:31 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I once put a key all the way through the palm of my hand when I slammed it down on a footstool during the latter Tubby days. Still have the scars from that one. Does that count?



    • J-Dub421
      10:34 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I walked right into U of L’s tennis facility in my UK jacket. Their players shot me dirty looks, so I just smiled at them and waved hello. Then I proceeded over to cheer loudly for my cousin and her Marshall teammates. (Marshall won the match-up! Ha! Suck on that Cards!)



    • runningunnin.454
      10:34 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Oh yeah that counts…ten points.



  8. RealCatsFan
    10:29 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

    Well, so much for being there for the radio show. Work, work, work. And to add insult to injury, got tied up on the phone for the whole first 25 minutes of the show! Wish I was there – and they have Woo in the house too! 🙁



    • J-Dub421
      10:31 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      We missed our opportunity to hang out in real life!



    • RealCatsFan

      No kidding! I would blow my cover for that. 🙂

    Do we have a picture online of STD’s Fu Manchu ‘stache?



    • J-Dub421

      Not that I know of, but hopefully soon.

    Asking a question – if you have a narrow escape from a plane crash like Dale Jr had, do you vow to never fly again, or do you just shrug it off and say that the odds of being in two plane crashes in your lifetime are infinitesmally small?



    • Realme
      10:46 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      If I’m a race car driver whose Dad died that way, I probably keep risking death in all forms of travel. Might as well go on the space flight the guys were talking about too.



    • J-Dub421
      10:53 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Option #2. There’s no way you’ll be in a second plane crash. Although, small planes like that crash way more often than commercial airlines.



  12. runningunnin.454
    10:49 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

    Yeah, the walk-on is a former Irvine Anteater, they’re right up there with the Banana Slugs.



  13. RealCatsFan
    10:50 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

    The Blind Squirrel actually has 3 outdoor volleyball courts, and they just added three more under tents that are heated.

    ps – Damn I hate not being able to play volleyball anymore. 🙁

    They also have indoor soccer and field hockey on the property.



    • Realme
      10:53 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I haven’t counted, but the new Marikka’s in Lexington has a lot. I couldn’t believe how many teams were playing last time I was there.



  14. ClutchCargo
    10:56 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

    This caller who has an IU fan MIL… Try having in-laws who are born and bred IU fans, who now live in TN and are also UT fans. That’s what I have to deal with. On paper, they are theoretically among the worst sports fans in the world. 🙂



    • runningunnin.454
      11:07 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Wow, depressive masochism; do they practice self flagellation?



    • RealCatsFan
      11:15 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      One of my daughter’s volleyball teammates’ family is worse. Her parents are from Tennessee and are UT fans, her older brother was born while they were living in Florida and is a Gators fan, and she is a UL fan. Thank god they never lived in North Carolina!



    • J-Dub421
      11:18 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      On the upside you can enjoy their suffering since their teams lose a lot.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:24 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Haha! Last football and basketball seasons weren’t the best for gloating, but I have done my share of that.

      Guess we have to give MJ credit for not becoming a Dookie nerd. Of course, he’s still a nerd…hah, I’m just kidding, sort of.

    There is a big rock quarry around the road that has a great pond that Ryan can jump into. 🙂

    Sure, it’s important for Ryan to keep his silly promises…



    • RealCatsFan

      His wife would probably like to kill him.



    • Realme

      He should be willing to jump into a gross pond as soon as every caller of the day gets their Wendy’s.

    I know Stoops has made reference to that kack saving his job, but I think that has been WAY overblown. Also, KSR throwing gas on the fire about the stupid rumors going around that day still kind of pisses me off.

      Ugh, was it THAT day? I still don’t respect Justin Rowland for the things he was legitimizing on Twitter.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:28 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Yep. My wife and I were at the game and were unaware of all the internet BS until afterwards.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:30 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Are you talking about the rumor that Stoops was cheating on his wife? That was a very ugly rumor and Stoops would have grounds for suing the person who started it for slander.



    • Realme
      11:33 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      It kept getting worse. It was a Saturday before the game, and it went as far as Stoops had gotten a student pregnant. I didn’t see what KSR was doing, but JR, who I used to follow on Twitter, was repeating everything. He did say they weren’t confirmed, but he also sounded very much like he believed Stoops was about to be fired. It was really bad.



    • Realme
      11:34 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I’m mad at Rowland all over again. :{



    • ClutchCargo
      11:35 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Pretty much just passing along JR’s crap. So, he’s getting fired after the game for chatacter related stuff, but it’s all good after a last second fg goes through the uprights. Got it.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:37 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Sorry, Realme. Letting stuff go has never been one of my strengths. 🙂



    • J-Dub421
      11:43 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, there was a nasty rumor circulating earlier this year about Kash. I am extremely suspicious of unsubstantiated rumors.



    • Realme
      11:47 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I remember the Kash one, because I complained that no one from UK had shot it down, and the media didn’t ask (there were supposed to be photo evidence etc.). I guess by my standards, they can’t win.



    • J-Dub421
      11:49 am August 16, 2019 Permalink

      I never saw any photo evidence, then it all died down after a few days. Much ado about nothing apparently. Most of the flames seem to have been fanned by snotty Louisville fans.
