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

Matt and Ryan are in Hopkinsville for Stop No. 20 (Thursday Show Thread)

The #KSRTour rolled into Hopkinsville, Ky. this morning for two hours of radio goodness. Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond parked the caravan at Holiday Inn for today’s live broadcast of the show. That’s 2910 Fort Campbell Boulevard for those of you planning to stop by.

Listeners in attendance may walk away with two tickets to a UK basketball next season or a spot in the drawing for the trip to the Bahamas. At the very least they’ll get to meet Ryan.

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

    Of course Louisville practices at 4:20… We had 2 girls from Kentucky in the Jeopardy Teen Tournament, but it looks like both will not make it to the next round.

      How does someone from Kentucky make it on to Jeopardy? I didn’t think you had schools in Kentucky.

    I wonder how many times has Shannon played the clip where Jamie says hello to him? 😉

    Yeah, I don’t think Hopkinsville has produced more basketball players than Louisville. Maybe more per capita, but certainly not more overall. That’s silly to say.

    Missed a great photo op. While at Sam’s in Clarksville, IN I noticed a couple of typical UL fans. Line beards and flat bills all over the place but the greatest thing was that one of them had a home monitoring ankle bracelet on and seems to be pround of it.

    Morning Matt – My advice if you don’t mind – Start using stairs if possible to keep you in shape and that’s what I’ve been doing all my life 🙂

    I know people will disagree with this, but they should never play a country song in Commonwealth Stadium, and ALL the music should be chosen by the players. Are you there to watch a football game or to listen to the music over the PA system?



    • realme
      10:49 am July 24, 2014 Permalink

      I totally agree with you. None of the bracket songs are things I would listen to on purpose, but I would be selfish to say they should be playing my music at the stadium instead.

      Lots of rednecks have money. Some people need to update their stereotyping, those lines are old and inaccurate.

      Because the only time the guys use it out on tour is when they are using the ticket contest to jam it with website hits.

    Matt ,

    Your train of thought on the possible UK – Cincy future football game may be a little off as to where game will be played .

    I was up in Cincy earlier this year and Tommy Tuberville coming on board has brought some new money into the program and the administration has broke ground on a big renovation project of their football stadium which involves more seats and luxury box type suties . I’m pretty sure the capacity will be up somewhere around 50,000 which would put it in the Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium range .

    Also , don’t forget the last UK game in Paul Brown Stadium with Miami of Ohio didn’t draw as well as everyone thought it would …………… but you still may be right in your thoughts with Stoops touching the area with recruiting so much ……….. will be very interesting to me to see if and where game will be played .

    (UK embarrassing event) I had a funny thing happen to me. I went to UK Basketball camp when Rick was coaching (W/ Donavon) and there was a kid who I was guarding in a pickup game before the camp started, and he kept running his mouth. Well I kept playing minded my own bus. and he went up for a jumper well I jumped and swatted it out of bounds and started to run my mouth, telling this kid to get that …. out of here. Well I happen to look up and Rick happen to catch the ball of which I swatted, and come to find out, the kid I swatted is none other than a RICHARD PITINO. Reason I found this out was, Rick walked over and handed me the ball and said, take it easy on my son and walked off. At the time I was embarrassed, but had I known then what I know now, I might have had a few more things to say. LOLOL ANyway, that’s my embarrassing UK moment. not that anyone cared to read it.

    guys…many may know what time you broadcast comes on, but I only dial in a podcast, so I don’t know when you will be in a particular city…and I live in Hopkinsville and would love to come, but I would have to have known the time to take off from work ;-(

      That’s right, you’ll need to go to Louisville for crack. Lexington has meth, or hillbilly heroin, as it’s called.

    Matt, we were not horrible the season we played Miami (OH) in Paul Brown Stadium. We beat both UGA and Auburn on the road that season and had we beaten UT in the final regular season game, we would have finished 2nd in the East. I don’t understand why you throw out definitive statements when you don’t know the facts. We did make a bowl that season. I wouldn’t call that horrible. Would you?



  24. Ole D-White
    11:32 am July 24, 2014 Permalink

    Matt I’d absolutely live it if we played Chokinati here in Ohio! UC fans HATE UK with a passion. I guarantee there’d be as many if not more UK fans in the stands as UC fans. Don’t forget, there is a very strong UK following from Dayton to Cincy!

    (UK embarrassing moment)
    In 2001 or 2002 I was driving home from class one day and happened to be on that street between memorial and the basketball dorms. Everything seemed fine, I was driving the speed limit, when out of nowhere Keith Bogans ran right out in front of me and I had to slam on my breaks to avoid hitting him with a Jeep. Come to think of it, they should close that road.

    Does anyone think that the woman named Rachel who just called in is also the woman Sarah who called in and both are the same as the woman who calls in hoping to get married for the Bahamas? Also, they both guessed wrong about Ryan’s answer. I’m convinced!
