      I’m sorry, but as much as I want to believe Matt that Kansas is going to get the smackdown, after the UNCheat fiasco, I will believe it when I see it.

      Oh, and what about that little tie-in with Zion that everyone is ignoring???

      Solid point, RCF. Zion’s name was mentioned when this first became a story, and now it’s as if the media has scrubbed his name from any mention in the news. I don’t really care about KU, I want to see dook get theirs. Which, of course, we all know will never happen.

      Enough said!! I think my point is proven!! I’m sorry. I didn’t realize Matt Jones gave y’all ownership of this show thread. Kinda unbelievable he created this whole thing for the “regular” commenters. Sorry, I didn’t realize it was an exclusive club and I don’t measure up to the high standards you have set.

      You literally came here, more than once now, to tell US what WE can discuss and in what manner. That’s why we didn’t like it. Also, I am an intermittent faster and am hangry at this hour, so bad timing for you to try and boss me around. 🙂

      RCF I am from just south of Somerset. Look, I meant nothing personal towards any of you. I just voiced an opinion and paid the price for it! Lol. That’s fine, I have pretty thick skin and believe it or not I am supportive of the Cats vocally and through buying tickets to games.

    Little weird that people called him Terry Turnover. Now that we have the guy who throws it to the other team and into triple coverage on the regular, what are they calling him? (I think Sawyer will be fine, for the record).

      Wish nothing but the best for SS. They need to stop calling for the side line passes and the passes to the flat; they are a pick six waiting to happen. Throw it downfield…kind of like a punt, right?
      He also needs to stop staring down his receivers.

      Y’all gonna have to let it go. Terry is done for the year. Sawyer is the guy now. I guess it wasn’t fair to criticize Terry’s play but Sawyer is fair game?? By the way I am critical of some in game decisions but I won’t personally criticize either kid.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:47 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      You seem really defensive of Smith, Southky. Not that I disagree with what you are saying.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:48 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, I remember that one. I also pictured you as a guy for the longest time. I guess I tend to do that anyway on a sports site. Stereotyping at it’s best, but I have to remind myself of how many ladies I see at games who are into sports way more than my wife and daughter. Haha.



    • Realme
      10:49 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      So it’s okay to defend Sawyer, but not okay to defend Terry? No one is personally attacking anyone. It’s okay to talk about ways in which a player needs to get better. Do you mind that we don’t love Chance Poore’s success rate? Is that also something you need to butt in and tell us what we can’t discuss? Bring something to the table besides coming here out of nowhere to fuss at people who weren’t talking to you.



    • Realme
      10:50 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Yeah, Chris, it’s easy to assume a sports blog commenter is a guy until you know otherwise. I was so excited when I learned Jdub and BP were ladies.

      10:53 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Southky, I’ve said a few times that neither guy is exactly Trevor Lawrence or Tua (using different words). Neither is perfect, and I hope Sawyer’s shoulder and hand are okay. He didn’t seem the same after he hurt his hand against UF.

      There are 10-12 long term show thread regulars, who own it equally. It is hard to get why someone who hasn’t been here just showed up and decided to police us. If that makes you happy, go for it I guess.

      If you haven’t noticed, Southky, we tend to discuss things in this thread instead of just yelling at each other. So don’t get your panties in a bunch when you come in here attacking people and it gets challenged. Like I said, you are very defensive for no apparent reason.



    • J-Dub421
      11:20 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      SouthKy, literally no one on this thread has personally attacked either you or Sawyer Smith. Enjoy your martyrdom, though.

      11:21 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Southky, I don’t know which ones you are singling out, but I often call out commenters who are obviously not UK fans. I’ve already forgotten his screen name, but a constant negative Nellie used to call us “Positive Cheerleader Policy” or something like that. lol

      We don’t own this thread, but several of us try to keep it from being personal toward players and coaches. I may not always be good about it. I don’t feel good about our football team right now, but I never want to be guilty of saying “Player so and so is a piece of crap” or anything like that.

      RG, I had forgotten that about the Scottish brigade. That is awesome!

    • Southky
      11:32 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Oops!! I left a comment above meant for this conversation. Like I said, point proven. I didn’t attack a single one of you “owners” of this show thread. I didn’t know your exclusive club wasn’t accepting new members.



    • StillBP
      11:37 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Let me see if I’m correct here: southky is telling us what to talk about but then angry that some regulars think they can tell people what to talk and… Did I get that correct?



    • RealCatsFan
      11:39 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      Southky, welcome aboard. I am happy to see someone else on the thread, so long as they post up stuff that is intelligent, balanced, and not unfairly targeting someone, either player or poster. Sorry to see things get started on a sour note. Take some time to get to know us “regulars”, and maybe you will enjoy (and participate in) the conversations. We are kind of the red headed stepchildren of KSR now that Matt only looks at Twitter.



    • Realme
      11:39 am September 24, 2019 Permalink

      We actually love getting new regulars, just prefer ones that are here to discuss, not fight. The reason we feel like we “own” it, is because this was abandoned by the guys doing the show years ago. We’re literally just talking amongst ourselves. They even tried to take it away from us once, and we fought to get it back. It genuinely does feel like it’s ours. Please join us any time you want to just converse about any topic. Even making your case for Sawyer would be welcome, just do it like an adult.

    Matt is thinking of an 80s Rindecella song (Cinderella…Archie Campbell used to say it backwards when doing a comedic telling of the story…Rindecella also “slopped her dripper”).

    Why do we go to same guy two, three straight plays? Bowden caught one long pass, and we followed it up with 2nd and 3rd consecutive plays to him.
    If Rose has a nice run, I can bet he will get the ball on the very next play. Very predictive.
    Mix it up a little, and let the guys catch their breath.

      The fact that they seem to be going out of their way to discourage has taken some shine off the apple as well. The areas where you can pitch a tent get smaller every year. I think having the athletes and coaches coming around and mingling with the fans has appeal, and just hanging out with fellow UK fans could be fun, but I’m too old (and busy) for it now.

      Maybe an old-timer here, but that’s a pretty young tradition. When I was in school in the late 80’s/early 90’s, the doors were open at Memorial on the night of Madness, and people just walked right in without tickets. I was in the band, so I’m not 100% on the ticket thing. I just know there was no camping out.
      Maybe that’s why I don’t get it.

    Prayers for the young man Matt mentioned with cancer. May the Lord heal him and give him and his family strength.

    Cancer in kids is simply the most unfair thing in the world.

    Along those lines, I read a very sad story last week about a nine year old girl here in the state who was riding her bike on her birthday and had a tragic accident that took her life. She had a spill on her bike, and the brake lever on the handlebar punctured an artery in her neck. Her mother found her and carried her back to the house. How horrible and tragic! Those folks need our prayers too.
