Russ Smith Has a New Haircut

Russ Smith either had too much fun celebrating his birthday yesterday, or not nearly enough.  He was spotted signing autographs at 4th Street Live sporting this new ‘do, which closely resembles the locks our own Willie Cauley-Stein sported earlier this season.

And remember WCS before you try to make fun.  Don’t be quick to judge; that’d be like the pot calling the kettle blond.

But we can at least call him “Rusqo,” right?

    I go to KSR every day to get all of the information available for the Louisville Cardinals.

      I go to a free website to complain about the stories.

    Corey has a man crush on Russ, apparently. I usually take up for KSR when people bash them for posting about UL but I have nothing in your defense this time. Worst post ever.

      Cudo’s to Corey for having the balls to write this article and then put his name on it.

      Balls? What does this have to do with balls? This did not take balls, it took desperation. Cudos to Corey for his desperation.

    I don’t remember all through these KSR years the amount of focus the last few months on Loserville. Most articles I try and say…ok, -but my goodness…. Is this intentional or?

    Mr. Jones please keep your minions under control. Set up some rules maybe only 5 UL posts per day. Of those 5 limit 1 of them to non basketball issues.

    This is news worthy on a Kentucky website? Must be a slow news day, eh. So what the kid congratulated UK after Aaron sent them packing. It isnt like everything he does is something we as UK fans care about. I dont get the fascination with him. He might be a good person, good kid..so what, I dont care. I come to KSR to read about KY. I would prefer to just forget about him like I always forget about the cards after the Cats beat up on them. I come to this website and have it bookmarked on my computer, but the dedication to russ smith irritates me.

    I usually don’t get to involved with these comments but these fellas have a point. What was the point of this post? This is KENTUCKY sports radio. I understand louisville is in kentucky, but this should just be about KENTUCKY. hence the name. Common guys, i’ve seen better post.

    Maybe Russ thought NBA GM’s would mistake him for WCS by dying his hair blonde and actually take him in the first round.

    Saw a pic of Russ on another website (that was referencing KSR’s infatuation with all things uofl). The pic was Russ behind the wheel of a BMW. Guess his agent gave him a cash advance, leading up to the draft?

    I am so glad that these UK fans are starting to realize why UofL fans visit this website. We, as UofL fans, come here to get out UofL sports news. To be honest we visit 247sports first and then louisville rivals and then in case we might have missed something about UofL news, we come here to KSR( aka. UofL news extra).

    So…. it is not our fault. STOP post news about UofL EVERYDAY and then we will stop coming here.

    your website is great for UK sports, please keep it that way for your fans. they truly deserve it.

    Matt Jones and the KSR obsession with all things Louisville is now an embarrassment for all of BBN. It’s impossible to even get upset with Cardinal fans that make fun of us because frankly if roles were reversed we’d all be doing the same. Never in my life have I been around a group of UK fans as insistent on turning the Cats into little brother. Seriously it’s like you guys just don’t get any of it. Okay so Matt lives in Louisville. Great. He also went to Duke. Does that mean we should be constantly fed Blue Devil articles none of us has a diet for? I mean it has reached the point that you start to wonder if Jones’ fixation comes from some buried fondness for the program or just some very misplaced jealousy. For someone who prides himself on giving the fans what they want and mocking actual journalists for not doing the same why the hell won’t he listen to what his readers want now? Please, for the love of all things holy, let it go!!! Let it go!!! I mean really, let it go!!! Again, let it go!!! Did I mention let it go?? See a shrink, move, get a hobby but whatever it takes stop being the sports blog equivalent of a Cardinal stalker. Good grief.

    • Do whut?
      9:01 pm April 20, 2014 Permalink

      I’m a Cats fan and I think the post makes that fairly clear and it’s not just a Russ Smith haircut story. It’s a rash of endless Louisville stories and mentions. The average Cats fan just isn’t that interested by little brother. Frankly I think most UK fans find UNC, IU, Duke, Tennessee and Florida more pertinent on a daily basis. I could be wrong about that but either way I feel like most of BBN can do without a Louisville article every five minutes and yet another played out, deceased horse pulverized Porcini’s joke every five seconds. Frankly it seems like an obsession and the endless, crass Porcini’s jokes besides being hackneyed seem like something Louisville fans would do. The writers on the site need to grow into big brother status and learn the craft of comedy writing. That is to say not cheap, redundant, overdone sex jokes that any middle schooler could come up with. And perhaps maybe focus those jokes on stories that don’t include the tragedy of an abortion.

    Like the others above, I’m one who usually doesn’t post, and I usually feel like the comment sections are waaay too rough on KSR.

    Having said that, for god’s sake, stop humping Russ Smith’s leg in public.

    Mr. Jones, you are ultimately responsible for the content here. This post has NOTHING to do with the stated mantra of this website, and is unwanted by nearly ALL of your target audience. If you choose to accumulate “hits” by printing things to make your viewers mad, then you are no better than L. McClain. Please, explain this to your writers so that many of us, who enjoy this site, don’t have to go elsewhere.

    KSR is obsessed with Big brother Louisville. But with UK having the third best college football program in the state, I guess we need to look up to Big Brother. We can be proud of our big brother’s success, can’t we? I know we have our moments of petty jealously, but in our heart I believe most of us enjoy Louisville’s football success.

      Aw little man. It’s cute that you want to be big brother, but it just isn’t the case. If you didn’t sweat us, you wouldn’t know what they’re posting on KSR. Question: what’s the series record for UK vs ul in football? And yes, I mean the whole series, not just the “modern” series that you like to talk about. Until you beat us more, you’re still lil bro. I see why you only mentioned football, since we beat you in men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, and softball this season.

    Not one positive comment about this post yet, and this won’t be the first. Take a hint, Corey and KSR, we absolutely don’t care about this stuff. If we’re not supposed to make fun of him because of Willie, then what exactly is the point of this post?

    KSR will eventually go the way of stores like Kentucky Korner…half UK and half UL. Matt Jones reminds us often that this is a business, and they love the UL traffic. And what drives traffic more than word-of-mouth? “Hey, KSR has a post about Russ Smith.” Click. “KSR dedicated the daily news to Russ Smith.” Click. “KSR made a post about Russ’ new hairdo.” Click.

    They don’t care what you think. They only care about $$$$. Get use to it. The UL stories are not going to go away.
