    2 questions:

    Why does Tony Delk insist on calling him Bam Adebado, even when the guy sitting next to him said it with the y sound a million times?

    Should Missouri be a 4.5 point favorite?

      Mizzou gets points for a home game. Losing to UK would hurt. They will be motivated but The Cats can take the victory home.

      Missouri looks ripe for the picking to me. They just lost at home to Middle Tennessee State.

      except for this past week, their record can be explained away because they lost to some good teams Florida, LSU, West Viriginia. and put up some gaudy numbers against EMU and DSU.

      The Georgia loss is questionable because we don’t really know how good or bad they are. and this past weekend was really questionable, but they still put up some gaudy numbers. It will becally come down to how well ourt defense plays with very little depth at linebacker and can our offense keep up with theirs.

      Yeah, we can’t take anything for granted. We have to get this win, because we’ll beat Austin Peay, then if we get even one more W after that, it’s icing on the cake.

      Hopefully we didn’t lose too many guys to injuries. For a while there it seemed like our defensive guys were getting roughed up, those most came back in after a few plays.

    I am on vacation this week putting the duh in Flori-duh. Was walking on the beach yesterday with a friend who had on a UofL shirt. He is actually a Cats fan, but his son is attending Louisville as a team manager for the basketball team, so now he feels like he needs to give some equal time. Should I disown him as a friend?



    • ukjaybrat

      Is it UofL or UofL Basketball ?

      Personally I would give him crap for it (but in a joking manner).
      If it were me, I would design something like
      “I’m a UK fan but my son made a poor decision and goes to UofL so I have to wear this shirt”
      Or something funny

      Disown no, unless he starts to throw up the L or say L1C4. Be seen with him in public? Maybe stay far enough away that people won’t put the 2 of you together. 🙂

      If he at least stays away from the tats and the grills and the flat bills, then it’s all good.

      Oh, and the line beards.

      No Crown Royal either, Kentucky bourbon only.

      He has alopecea, so no worries about line beards, and he doesn’t drink. He is actually a great guy, I just like to give him grief.

      The really funny, and somewhat sad thing,was that when we were walking on the beach, there were several Louisville fans going up to him and yelling Go Cards. He may have even had an L sign flashed at him. To his credit he just smiled and did nothing else.

    Austin MacGinnis = Money MacKickins (thanks to Jack Pilgrim for that yesterday!)!!!

    I’m proud of Austin since he played high school ball in the neck of the woods I now live in. Way to go Money!!!

    I am proud of our football team. They could easily have gotten disheartened and given up there at the end, but they didn’t. It was good to see our guys fight back and take the win.

    IDK why Matt is pretending he agreed with the time management when he himself complained on Twitter.



    • bouzoukiman
      10:40 am October 24, 2016 Permalink

      I guess he had an epiphany afterwards.

  6. BTW, which coach was that kissing Stoops on the cheek at the end of the game?

    Also, Stoops tackling McWilson after the pick 6 was great.



    • J-Dub421

      That was the McWilson we’ve all been waiting for. I was glad that he and Timmons both had good games.

    I was very much expecting a pain-filled 1 point loss, so when the fg was good, I was just totally numb.

    Need to beat Missouri so we can avoid going into the uofl game with 5 wins again.

    I believe that was truly Ryan’s understanding of the band’s name.

    I hate to admit this, but that day some of you were discussing the home-schoolers on public school teams issue, I was too distracted by the Tebow shirtless in the rain photo to focus on the issue under discussion.



    • J-Dub421

      Tebow is quite the looker…

      I am a guy, so hard to comment from that perspective, but if my daughters some day bring home a guy like Tebow, I would be ok with it. Yes, even if he us a Florida fan. Double yes if he is rich too.

    My wife told me that she has been listening to KSR on podcast. It’s like falling in love all over again. 🙂

      My husband and I have a “did you hear what Ryan said” or “that Chester Darryl fight was awesome” conversation at least once a week. It’s fun.

      my wife listens with me on podcast whenever we take a road trip but she isn’t really a regular listener. wish she was. it’d be just one more awesome thing we can talk about every day. oh well

    I think Isaac is gonna be huge this year. But I thought he shoulda been playing against Thomas Bryant lat year

    I was pleased with Dominique Hawkins. He’s always been a nasty defender, but he looked super confident on offense as well.

    If Mulder truly was the best player on the court, and continues to be that, and Cal doesn’t play him,then I think that is really going to give ammo to critics of Cal’s “players first” philosophy.



    • Realme
      11:19 am October 24, 2016 Permalink

      Cal tends to mention him before he mentions Dom lately. I think he’ll get some time and either earn more, or fade back into the bench.



  17. J-Dub421
    11:33 am October 24, 2016 Permalink

    I don’t get the knock on our shooting either, Hawkins can shoot, Fox can shoot, Monk can shoot (didn’t he win the 3-point contest at the McD’s All American game?), Mulder can shoot, Gabriel and SKJ both have good range as well. Briscoe looks much improved. Willis isn’t the only player on the team who can shoot.

    Do we have more caves in KY? is right up there with do ducks lay eggs? for Ryan-esque questions from Matt recently.

    People complain about Saul Smith for 4 years, yet they don’t name him now as a player for Tubby. smh. Good news for Brad Cal.
