Mark Stoops and Jimmy Rose on KSR (Wednesday Show Thread)

UK Football Fan Day

We have two special guests for you this morning on Kentucky Sports Radio radio:

In the first hour, UK head football coach Mark Stops will stop by to reflect on the first three games of his first season with the Wildcats. Then he’ll address the quarterback situation, the impact of the newcomers, and what he expects in the next nine games.

And in the second hour, Jimmy Rose, the America’s Got Talent contestant from Bell County, will drop in to let us know what’s it like to go from Pineville to NBC’s national stage.

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

    I hope one day Zeus asks Ryan and Drew to go rock climbing or to help him move (another Seinfeld reference). Matt, you should have sent The Truth to Tom Crean’s fantasy camp! I hope Dave Baker wasn’t too upset that you were talking bad about the WKYT bathrooms.

    I think yesterdays show thread was the funniest ever.

    I really think my scenario is right wit the WKYT bathroom… How long has Alan Cutler been in Lexington? 35 Years… he does come to the bathroom at WKYT before going to WLEX. So did you get in trouble Uncle Matt?

    Have an iPhone? New software update at 1pm et.

    JB- I hope you’re right… I want to be in the WKYT waiting room to see Alan Cutler run in wearing a fake beard go to the bathroom….then 10 minutes later see him bust out the door and run out.

    Yes, tonight is the finals of AGT. He’s in the top 6 with a magician, an male tenor trio, a female singer, a comedian (that’s debatable), and a guy names Kenichi that’s a performance artist (dancer I guess is the closest way to describe him). Gonna be a tough competition..

    Looks like Oscar is stirring the pot this morning regarding the Rupp project saying it’s not out of the realm of possibility that UK builds an on-campus arena. According to him and his source(s), UK and the city are still squabbling.

    Jimmy Rose is terrible. I don’t understand why people in Kentucky, especially EKY, feel they have to like someone just because they are from Kentucky. Coal Keeps the Lights on might be the worst song ever written. It’s horrible.

    All we need is some good guys for Ulis/Hawkins to get the ball to. Football, Towles needs experience due to the fact that Max is injury prone.

    One thing you gotta love about Stoops is that he seems open to do whatever he needs to do to field his best team. He is not about to stand and watch Whitlow run the team into the ground if Max can’t go. He knows he will need Towles if Max isn’t available.

    It’s one thing to be frustrated, but Pelini shows a clear disgust for the Nebraska fans. There is no excuse for how he is talking. Just because it is a private conversation, doesn’t make it right.

    Nebraska was down 20-6 at the half and the fans started booing the team as they left the field at half time. They also went down 27-6 in the third and the fans started leaving and Nebraska came back and won. I don’t blame him for being mad at those fair-weather fans. I feel the same was about some fans at UK when they leave early.

  66. confusius
    10:33 am September 18, 2013 Permalink

    What we need to do is when the defense is a Tampa 2 overplaying the slot. We need to check down to a TE post but have the TE squat in the gap created by the zone coverage. TE is going to be open and if he can make the Safety, Linebacker, Corner, and the Defensive End doesn’t drop into coverage I thing that would be a Touchdown…. 33% of the time that is going to work every time.

    If our fans were half as knowledgeable about football as they are basketball, people would enjoy the games a lot more.

    You think there would be more Kobe’s too, but no one really likes that guy so I guess that makes sense. I am in Indiana and can attest to the Jalen thing. I worked on a daycare center in the inner city, measuring for a renovation in like 2001 and half the boys were named Jalen.

    Why aren’t their more Rex’s in Kentucky though?

    Matt – “QB” means “Quarterback” (silly name, I know, haha 🙂 anyhoo, that is the guy that typically hands the ball off to the running back or throws to a guy called a receiver (WR). Alrighty then, ask James for more tips.

Plug op for the best place for UK gear… Fan outfitters!) and says that he has family on the Basketball team. The man is LARGE and White, so I assumed none of the players and asked him who. He then tells me he Is John Robic’s 1st cousin, after some small talk about the upcoming BBall season I say, “did you know that your cousins hair has its own twitter page?” He commenced to Laugh Hysterically for 5 mins and the only thing I can get from what he is saying through his laughter is “I want his hair SSOOO bad!”
