hopkins

There are big shows, and then there are BIG SHOWS. Today’s Kentucky Sports Radio is a BIG SHOW. Rex Chapman is in town for his UK Athletics Hall of Fame induction this weekend, and will be in-studio with BFF Josh Hopkins to talk about the Cats with Matt and Drew.

Hopkins will have the honor of introducing Chapman at the Hall of Fame Dinner tonight, and hopefully he’ll give listeners a sneak peek of his speech. They’ll also talk about Kentucky’s chances of upsetting Florida tomorrow night.

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

    I’m going with Florida by 14… but the real question is what happens Sunday night with Heisenberg? Is he going after Gretchen and Elliot? The Nazis? Both? All along I keep thinking about what Walt says when watching Scarface ‘Everyone dies in this movie’, but if that happens, that would be a lot of people dying in 75 minutes.

    I always tell my kids that being a little bit nervous before a big game is a good thing – it means you are focused and ready. However, there is a difference between that and knee-knocking, yak in a garbage can, deer-in-the-headlights nervousness. That is a sign that Harrow wasn’t ready for the bright lights of the Big Blue City.

    Interesting story (for me at least). My first ever UK game was back in 1987 and I was lucky enough to not only get to watch Rex play but also a feller by the name of David Robinson play. My sons first ever UK game, he got to see a guy we called Unibrow and another guy know by his initials (MKG) play. How awesome is that?????

    Why are you so team Whitlow, Matt? Your obsession is blinding you to the actual performance. Whitlow can not find the open man down field. We are one dimensional with him. He can only complete short passes which brings the defense in which takes away from his only strength, his running ability.

    42 – Believe it or not, I have NEVER been to a UK Football game. As big of a fan as I have been my entire life, I’ve never been able to Commonwealth during a game. The ONLY time I’ve been to Commonewealth is when I went to Rick Pitino’s camp 2 years in a roll, he took us there and let us walk on the field(pretty cool). I’m HOPING to make it to the Alabama game, but I would love nothing more than to come to Commonwealth tom and watch them upset the Florida Hators and storm the field. There couldn’t be a better 1st game ever.

    Matt, I have to say I had a COOL meeting of Rex. 1st time I met him was at Pitinos camp Rick had Rex come in and speak to us and Rex threw the ball up in the air and I caught it. He told me to come down and said you and I r going to take on the best 2 players at camp. SO i got excited, and pretty much sat back and watch Rex DESTROY these 2 kids (Whom were pretty good) by his self. He did his toss the ball behind his back dunk on 1 of them, and I just sat there with my jaw on the ground. He is and was an AMAZING Basketball player and we as UK fans, should feel lucky & Honored to have such a GREAT player to come from the BBN.

    Jalen Whitlow is a great FOOTBALL PLAYER, not a great Quarterback……RG3 is a QUARTERBACK first and a ATHLETE second. Same with Kaepernick, Wilson, etc…..they need to make Jalen a hybrid and roll with Max at QB for the rest of the season barring injury. Whitlow has almost zero touch on his passes and his accuracy in games is awful. Not to mention that when Drew Barker comes in the Spring he’s going to be behind Barker and Max anyway, so why delay the inevitable.

    I wonder if Coach Stoops would consider suiting up 4.1 James for the game tomorrow. With his speed I think we could possibly take this game. However, the defense wouldn’t get much rest due to his speed and ability to score.

    Impossible to describe how good Rex was in high school and with the cats. Remember him standing flat footed as a junior in high school under the basketball goal in pre-game warm ups at Henderson county and jumping straight up with the ball and reverse two hand slamming it. We didn’t know much about him other than he could elevate and shoot over our 6-3 to 6-4 guards and totally dominated. He also posterized a couple of my friends from Union county at Union county HS.
