University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

LIVE from UK Football Media Day! (Friday Show Thread)

Kentucky Sports Radio radio is coming to you LIVE from UK Football Media Day (kind of) to give listeners all of the football talk they can handle. Matt Jones is conducting things via the studio in Louisville, but Ryan Lemond is on the ground with a microphone to paint the scene and arrange interviews. Expected to be on the show today are Mark Stoops, Mitch Barnhart and Vince Marrow, and who knows who else will stop by.

Tune in for your football fix but we turn to basketball and the Bahamas next week.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    I hope JB Holmes can make a run today to get back to the top of the leaderboard. It would be great to see him win his first major in his home state.

    We have had heavy rain here in Paducah since 7:00 a.m. I hope you all get the show in before it starts in Lexington.

    I figured out why Ryan didn’t know any Led Zeppelin songs yesterday. His favorite band from that era is Stink Floyd.

    Matt,I would like for you to comment on Rex and your current relationship.I love to hear him on the show and to think one presumed comment could ruin a good fan and ambassador of the program would be a shame.

    PLEASE tell Mr. Barnhart that this LONG TIME season ticket holder TRULY appreciates the “loyalty bonus points” that they awarded this year. Great idea, and greatly appreciated!

    Speaking of Rex. I always thought the stuff he sells on his website is rather douchey. I-Rex tshirts? c’mon

    As I watched UK’s kicker miss an extra point at LP Field last year, I retorted to a mocking WKU fan, “You can’t touch us in Women’s Softball!!”

    That’s all because of you Mitch, thx bro!

    Last night my wife asked who Tony Delk was after seeing an old jersey. I told her he was the 4th all-time leading scorer in UK history, a fact UKathletics.com backed up. He actually is the fifth all time scorer. Keith Bogans is fourth, and he is not even on the list. Prince is not on the list either. Way to keep the list up to date, Uk athletics dot com. I was surprised just how hard it was to find the list other places.

    Matt, the football for dummies post was good in theory, but according to it Nick Roush doesnt know the difference between a Rub route and a wheel route….also didnt know what mesh meant at all and really didnt describe the “option” well at all…..

    If you need someone to do the post right…. contact me…. i dont use a video game as my source.

    Please ask Coach if he appreciates your advertiser (Ky Fan Outfitters) playing UofL’s fight song during your show.

    My boys at Pulaski are jacked! They beat Madison Southern twice last year. Nothing will change this year! Go Maroons!

    Pulaski QB is Riley Hall. Had better stats than Barker last year against better competition. Bowling Green fans called him the Johnny Manziel of Kentucky high school football last year. That’s respect.

    Pulaski has the chance to really make some noise this year. They already have and awesome track and cross-country team. Dynasty in the making?

    Ryan sounds sick. I hope he don’t infect the football staff. I’ll be so pissed if he does. Plus he doesn’t need to go to the Bahamas. He could infect the team and throw the whole season into a tale spin. #STAYAWATFROMRYAN

    I don’t know why but I always love it when Vince Marrow is on.

    With those wrestling moves, I bet the Marrow household needed to have a carpenter on retainer.

    Matt you should ask coach marrow since UK recruiting has moved into Ohio and the DC area. Where is the next area they are looking to try and recruit?

    Coach is saying the same things I’ve been saying about last year. If they had ANY offense at all, they certainly would have taken down Vandy and Miss. St. on the road. They will WIN both of those games this season. Bet on it.

    I am EXCITED for this season.
    I think the D-Line will be even better with the Committee of ELAM, MEANT, DOUGLAS, COLEMAN, HYDE, LEWIS, JOHNSON, MIDDLETON, & DUBOSE replacing Mister, Rumph.
    Another year for BIG Z, BUD and HATCHER.
    I think the D-Backs will be better with another year under their belt.
    If the O-Line improves like I think they should and the QBs and the WRs work together in the second year of the Offense.
    This could be a special year. I am not talking 14-0 or anything, but I think putting a Serious SCARE in a bunch of teams on our schedule.
