    I haven’t been to Carter County in a LONG time. Not too much there.

    Ryan back yet? I wonder if he went to Vermont since he said a lot of people go on vacation there.

    Those Wendy’s baconator fries look good.

      Everything looks good in ads. Too bad they won’t look that good if you ordered them in one of their restaurants.

    The only things Louisville has beaten UK in consistently in recent years are football and baseball. We win everything else most of the time.

      By beaten UK consistently, do you mean making it farther at the end of the season, or head-to-head competition? Bc their baseball team has made it farther than us at the end of the season, but last year we beat them twice and they beat us once. This year we didn’t beat them. But in the past our head-to-head baseball competitions have been split.

      I was referring to both actually.

    I just saw Louisville’s possible new transfer who just got dismissed from FSU for battery.

      You’re probably right. Louisville is second chance U. And third, fourth, fifth, sixth……..

    The FSU quarterback punched that girl in the face. He used a closed fist, and you could see her bleeding all over the bar afterwards. She sort of slapped at him first, but he completely over-reacted. It was like the Ray Rice incident. He could have walked away or easily restrained her without just punching her in the face. He should be kicked off the team.

      He is gone from FSU. I believe FSU is still receiving bad pub for the all the Jameis Winston stuff so maybe they’re trying to lay the law down now. Seriously though, I believe that kid will be on campus, even if it’s for a visit, but wouldn’t be surprised if he is a card.

      FSU should receive bad publicity. They only gave token, slap-on-the-wrist discipline for Winston’s repeated transgressions.

      Agreed, if they weren’t going for a championship he would have been gone. That’s what makes it worse in my opinion.

    U of L has ONLY advanced further than UK in the women’s NCAA tournament because they haven’t had to play UConn as early as we did. Basically they got put in a better region.

    Recruits are weird sometimes. Top 5 guys go into Duke and Arizona, and come out the same as they went in. They go to Kansas and finish their one year worse than they were when they went in. They go to Ky and have noticeably improved. How is there any question that Cal is the best coach for these guys?

    • J-Dub421
      11:21 am July 7, 2015 Permalink

      No one gives Coach Cal any credit for developing players, but Duke has had about the same amount of talent and their players haven’t done anywhere near as well as ours in the NBA. Why does no one notice this?

      The guys Matt was just talking about should see that Okafor got overtaken by Towns as a reflection of just that, but I guess Duke gets the benefit of the doubt for winning the championship.

      We both had 9 McDonald’s All Americans, only three went to the draft from Duke, while 6 went from UK (not counting WCS who was drafted 6th but was not a McD’s AA). Only 2 of Duke’s were taken in the lottery, but 4 of our guys went in the lottery. We had 2 players who didn’t even start and only played 20 minutes per game get drafted in the lottery. I would like to see any other team pull that off.

      I agree on the whole Kentucky Joe stuff. It’s like the Kige Ramsey dude. Past their prime. Time to let it go fellas.

      Kige Ramsey >>> Ky Joe….and that is difficult to admit, but true. Kige doesn’t pester other fans at public events.
