    Find it interesting that Rush Limbaugh and Matt both move to WOR on the same day. I thought Nate’s call yesterday was great! I think he was surprised Matt didn’t hang up after he said ‘Hello Lachlan’. What was the singing guy’s Facebook page? I keep catching myself singing Big Blue Fan in the Morning… I noticed his new song had the same tune, just different words. I hope he tells us where he’s going to be in advance, I would have made the trip to the Mall to see him haha.

    I’ve always looked up to Drew and uncle Matt… literally since I am 5’10” 1/2. As a guy, I used to date a girl who was just a 1/2 inch taller than me. Most guys wouldn’t do that. I didn’t mind.

    Now that you are back on WKYT uncle Matt, my wife is enjoying the KSR minute because she thinks Matt is cute, should I be worried? πŸ˜‰

    Maybe Stoops earlier comments about the team were based on film he saw of last year’s games and now he realizes the players aren’t really that bad now since his coaching staff has taken over!

    10:20 am August 27, 2013 Permalink

    Matt this time last year you yourself said that we could be a better football team this year but with our schedule we may not show it on the record. We lost to the SEC east champs buy 4pts and lead USC at the half with a true freshman QB. This team has more talent than last year and we will score more points. I think we can win 6 games. Stoops knows he has some talent we just need to navigate the schedule.

    I used to go to the luncheons. I was going to UK at the time so I would eat a ton while I was there. The interviews were secondary. I still remember Rich Brooks’ last luncheon and seeing him yelling at a reporter (I think Chip Cosby) when he was asked about retirement. I still here coach yelling “The focus this week is TENNESSEE!” and then seeing him storming off

    Matt, people have all kinds of eye problems that glair from lights and even the brightness of the sky that causes them to need to wear sunglasses most of if not all the time. Have some consideration for other people every now and then.

    Matt, Blake Bone is ranked in the mid 40’s at WR while Snodgrass is ranked in the mid 30’s. So Snodgrass is actually ranked higher than Bone.

    I attended the Football Women’s Clinic last month and came away even more impressed with the coaching staff & players. We spent the day interacting with them and every coach we spoke with was personable & appreciative of the fan base. Each one asked more questions about us than we had for them. The players were a TON of fun. I had already purchased tickets for the Western game but after attending the clinic I came home and purchased season tickets for the first time ever. I can’t wait for the season to get started.

    Remember when Matt Roark got the DUI a couple years ago ? He was supended for a game and then came back to help UK beat Tenn. Since Lowery is a starter, he’ll be suspended but I think later in the season.

    The only reason I think Western has a chance of winning is because Bowling Green doesn’t have any good motorcycle clubs for eligible bachelors. Where is a coach suppose to find a skank to ride on the back of his bike in that town?

    165 – He has developed players at his previous stops and the High Performance sports science conditioning program is state of the art. From what the players have been saying they seem to think they are being developed, especially compared to the previous regime. The games will show us just how much.

    176 – Don’t forget the D-line players that went in the 1st & 2nd rounds of the draft. I for one don’t expect miracles the first year, I’d love it but don’t expect it. I do expect to see improvement over last year. It takes time to develop football players and he hasn’t had enough time to recruit and develop his players yet here at UK.
