Good Morning KSR Nation!  Matt and Drew are once again sending their love to the main island from the beautiful Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, Bahamas.  Without Jay Bilas or machete guy (hopefully) on the show today, we need YOUR calls to help the delusional vacationers know what is happening in the outside world.  Whatever it is, I doubt it’s as cool as the stories that will be shared this morning from the trip.  Gosh I envy them right now…

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

    Does anybody have the SEC Network? I checked before I left home and I couldnt find it at 404 or 408 on Dish Network.

      In SW Ohio, TWC shows channel 336 on the digital listing…which is not and HD channel. I contacted TWC and ask them if the SEC Channel will be offered in HD and they said “No”. I am getting it at no extra charge but, I would be willing to pay extra for HD.

    Bring on the SEC network… but I don’t have cable nor Sat. No more games on Kay Why Tea (WKYT-TV) except the NCAA tournament.

      Honestly that’s why I don’t like the idea of the SEC Network. I miss the days of Larry Conley and Tom Hammond calling our games on Jefferson Pilot. I’ll miss Kyle Macy and Dave Baker (although I suppose both of them will probably work for the SEC Network), and Rob Bromley going inside the huddle on the Big Blue TV Network. But most of all, I’ll miss just having to go to channel 27 to watch Kentucky Basketball instead of having to hunt down which channel UK plays every time we play.

    I love watching this team. It has been a joy. I’m sure everyone in the Bahamas is having a ball.

    I’d like for someone to find an answer to a question that I have regarding a half empty gym in the Bahamas. We were told on the radio show that the only way one could attend this game was to buy the packet deal that was being offered. It is obvious the games have not been a sell-out. How many fans out there would have gone or would possibly even consider going down now for the final three games if they hadn’t been misled. Seems to me this trip was controlled by someone who wanted to have a restrictive controlled monopoly on access. Explain, maybe someone just made mistakes but I would like an answer. TV and the SEC Network, as well as Kentuckians deserved a full gym and once again the opportunity to see what the BBN is like.

    There for half would 25 meters

    I know this seems like a negative little blip on the radar from down there in the Bahamas, but can we just mention briefly how lame it is that the Ticketmaster fees aren’t going to be refunded for the Alumni game? Lots of ticketholders bought tickets to the game because they can’t afford to watch any other UK basketball events live. For some families, those fees are a good chunk of change. I know the fees wouldn’t be refunded for like a concert or whatever, but I think it is a shame for the fans to take this hit instead of the athletics department that wasn’t organized enough to ensure there would be 20 guys on the floor.



    • BlueRedNeck

      Ticketmaster and their fees are one of the biggest shams of modern day history. Total cash cow.



    • ukbradstith

      UK should take care of this if Ticketmaster won’t. No excuse for that.



  8. J-Dub421

    That would be a 25 meter pool then, and we used to go down and back like that all the time in swim practice, Matt. I could do that at 13.

    I was a collegiate swimmer at Berea College and swimming the length of a 25 yard pool down and back was normal for me and my team mates. However, a fit, strong swimmer like Willie should be able to do it as well. Swimming fast just uses up the oxygen in your blood faster.

    I was in the Dominican Republic back in May and anyone I talked to at the Resort about being from Kentucky got so excited and screamed “KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN!” so it must be an island thing. They gave us a disapproving look when we said that we don’t even eat there.



  17. BlueRedNeck

    Nothing like having to explain erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation to your 10 year old daughter because of the inane radio and TV ads. I long for the good old days when the FCC actually did something to keep crap like this off the airwaves. And the good old days were probably less than five years ago.

      The cops should just warn everyone to fortress themselves inside their homes for a night and let these dumbasses kill each other off. That is a purge that would benefit all of society.

    He didn’t literally dig a hole, he made a hiding spot behind some of the merchandise. The gross thing was he was using diapers from the baby aisle to keep from having to use the bathrooms and risk being detected. I imagine the smell eventually gave away his hiding place.

    Matt, the Walmart kid’s parents were out of town. He was staying with his Aunt. He ran away from her to the Walmart. He had a history of running away, but not of wearing diapers haha.
