Sprinkling basketball into the conversation (Tuesday Show Thread)

cal

We can only cry over the football team for so long. So, today, Matt Jones and Ryan Lemond will add a little basketball to the show’s discussions in hopes of bringing a little positivity back to the show. Possible topics include Cal on the recruiting trail and the NCAA pulling out of North Carolina.

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

    Basketball talk won’t fix my level of disappointment from Saturday. Very unimpressed by the lack of effort.

    The fans in the stands might also be there to support our military and first responders.

    So you have part of the fan base claiming that KSR is all sunshine and rainbows about UK sports and football in particular, and you have another faction saying that they are being unfair and are part of the problem.

      Remember when Lincoln said “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”? The same is true of happiness.

      (Obviously none of us “remembers” this because we weren’t alive during the 1860’s, but you know what I mean.)

    This football season is ALMOST as bad as 2013 when out basketball team lost in the NIT and UofL won the championship. I say almost, because I don’t think anything can equal that hell.

      It’s not that bad. At least until the last game when Louisville destroys us.

      2013 sucked, but the two BCG years were worse. At least with Cal as coach we knew 2013 was an anomaly and it would only be that year.

    UK should be handing out free bourbon shots to help the fans deal with this crappy football team.

    I’ve got this “MAKE A STAND” poster staring at me, and am feeling the need to tweak the slogan. Any suggestions? Has to be work appropriate. I am so far partial to “What did you expect?” that I saw in the KSR top 10 post.

      “More of the same.”

      Change it to “Make a Lemonade Stand”, because I think a bunch of grade school girls could beat this bunch of pansies.

      “Why we drink bourbon.”

      Someone on the top ten tweats tweaked it to say “And you expected something different?” or something to that effect.

      How bout “Learn To Stand”. After they learn that they maybe they can learn to walk, run, tackle, pass, catch, etc.

      On second thought, I think the easiest and truest tweak you cam make iis to Simply write the word CANT in front of it.

      CANT MAKE A STAND. That sums it up.

    UK football is like being in an abusive relationship. He keeps promising that he’ll change and things will be better. Then he gets drunk again and punches you in the face and throws you down a flight of stairs…

      you mean a top 10 program in both basketball and football? that kind of rough life as a sports fan?

      Cats paw knows all about beating women and children. It’s his favorite hobby along with kicking puppies and being a terrible person.

      Yeah, cp, and the best ho’s in town for every player. Has Bobby extended that privilege to the football team yet? You can’t spell “adULtery” without a U and an L.

      U of L basketball was #1 in sitting at home during the NCAA tournament last year.

      Louisville sold their soul for football success, and everyone in the country knows it – including Louisville fans. When this eventually blows up in their face, I want to hear cats paw telling us how great it is. You can’t tell me you didn’t sweat a little bit when that tweet went out last month, cp. Yeah, right, someone hacked Bobby’s twitter account. Sure…

      It’s coming – as Howard used to say, the only variable is time. 😉

    There’s only one way for Kentucky to ever have a SEC championship football team. Global warming floods all the southern states and all those blue chip recruits move north.

    That’s why everytime we toot that coal wistle I get a tear in my eye thinking about those 1,000 million metric tons of daily CO2 emissions melting glaciers and moving us closer to victory

      At this point I think we’ll be willing to settle for bowl games and beating lesser teams.

    you know that somewhere ole cats paw is out there basking in the fact that all the former sunshine pumping cheerleaders (4 yrs worth) are all now message board TROLLS criticizing the coach!!!

      The difference is we are not celebrating the team’s failure like you.

      So what are you going to say when Bobby gets caught with his dick in his hand again? Are you going to be holding his jock then?

      I’m sure you’re super happy right now cats paw, since you’re such a huge U of L fan.

    • Card Claw, you could actually have one scintilla of credibility if you had ever said ONE thing positive about Calipari.

      It’s not a mystery cats paw is a louisville fan, he doesn’t even deny it anymore.

    Wait – I had a call come in – what were they saying about Dawson?

      That he told a friend we were so easy to beat because we used the exact same defensive play calls as when he was here.



    • RealCatsFan

      You mean we actually have defensive plays that can be called?

    “The guy is drunk but there he goes!” Lol.

  13. Okay, so Matt brings up the P subject.

    For someone who should know the Constitution backwards and forwards after studying law, he has the most shallow knowledge of what freedoms it guarantees.

    Rant over.



    • J-Dub421
      11:03 am September 13, 2016 Permalink

      Unless he focused on criminal law, he likely wouldn’t have studied the Constitution all that much.

    • That may be true.

      Little to zero knowledge of the US Constitution is evidently a prerequisite to national office.



    • D0nc0smic

      Considering that he clerked in the top district court for constitutional issues, i’m fairly sure Matt knws far more about the constitution than anyone commenting here.
