Matt Elam LIVE DIARY and LIVE STREAM

ELAMLIVE

We finally made it.  At noon eastern, Matt Elam will announce whether he’ll attend Kentucky or Alabama.  KSR is covering the event in every way possible.  Matt, Ryan, and Drew are live on the scene at the John Hardin High School auditorium and will stay on for an extra 15 minutes to cover the announcement (some affiliates will break away, but the WLAP.com stream will stay on).  We’ve got a video stream from iHigh, and Nick Roush and I will be running a live diary to give you the latest updates from the interwebs.  Leggooooo….

12:02 a.m. (Nick): Matt Elam is staying in his old Kentucky home! Matt chooses the Cats over the Crimson Tide.

11:57 a.m. (Tyler): Elam’s remarks have begun.

Mark Stoops and company are watching, too:

11:55 a.m. (Nick): Matt has taken his place at the table sitting next to his mother and Coach Chad Lewis, with his teammates creating a picturesque backdrop.

11:49 a.m. (Tyler):  Matt and Ryan have taken over the Courier-Journal live feed:

Good to see they’re hydrating.  (They’re off the feed now.)

11:47 a.m. (Nick): Our old CN2 friend Bradley sizes up the UK helmet on Elam’s announcement table. (h/t @KYPrepsAlex)

Not giving anything away with that outfit.

11:40 a.m. (Tyler):  Elam will begin his remarks at 11:55, and announce at noon.  Here’s his latest tweet:

11:37 a.m. (Nick): The only thing better than listening to Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day” in the morning, is waking up to hearing stories that even Governor Beshear has lobbied Kentucky to Matt Elam.  In other news, Billy Donavan’s on a plane to Lexington.

11:30 a.m. (Tyler): Good morning.  I’m nervous.  There are too many signs he’s going to pick Alabama: the fact that UK has a helmet on the table and not a hat, Alabama’s coaches getting in a final visit this morning, the media only presser, Elam’s tweet last night asking fans to understand his decision…

Could the UK helmet on the table be a smokescreen?  I could totally see Elam pulling a UK hat from under the table.

    Of course he’s going to UK. You really think he’d hold a press Conf to pick anyone other than Kentucky? He’s totally F’ing with you guys. Why grown people fawn over 17 year olds I’ll never understand.

      You’re going to look silly really soon. He won’t let public in. If he was going to UK he would have.

      I’m back to eat crow. Yes I feel silly. I’m very happy we got him, but I feel very silly. Sorry man.

    Did KSR post this tweet yesterday? I don’t recall seeing it. This more than anything tells me Bama is the choice and makes me question why KSR neglected to post it. Site traffic is king, I suppose.

    If this goes South (literally) I hope the BBN shows class and treats the kid with respect and wishes him well.

    I hope we get him, but if he picks Bama I can’t really say I’d fault him.

    Tell Drew to stand up as soon as Elam reaches for a hat and start singing Wrecking Ball.

    Ah, nevermind. I didn’t realize the people talking were Matt & Ryan doing the KSR radio show. Maybe we’ll get something good while they’re at commercial.

    Yea if he chooses Bama talk bad to the kid won’t improve our football program. Let’s focus on the coaches who walked a mile in the snow to visit someone rather than tear down people.

    Hope he picks Bama just to make Jones look like an even bigger D-bag than he already is.

    Is that a delicious Coke Zero Matt? Maybe even Cherry Coke Zero?

    Would Demarcus Cousins have been crazy to go to Alabama as opposed to UK? Just sayin…

    When you guys listen to this you are going to regret using the term, “unit”, rather than “microphone.”

    Rumors flying everywhere that Cal will retire midseason for health reasons and Billy Donovan is on his way to Lexington to meet with Barnhart and others concerning the job. Wow!
