Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Start your chance to host a sports radio show (Tuesday Show Thread)

With very little coming through the newswire yesterday, Kentucky Sports Radio radio will do it best to talk about the Cats on this morning’s radio show. But Matt and Ryan will also tell you how you can host your own sports radio show. At least that’s what Matt’s Twitter said today.

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

    Who is filling in during your vacation in June Matt? I hope we get Cutler one day, but I have an idea. Can we trick him into thinking the show is from 9-12 so that he can do his 1 hour monologue not on the air then he’ll be ready to take calls at 10?

    With all the hours on 630, I think Ryan should do an hour on 98.1 the Bull and nothing but Rascal Flatts. On 94.5 playing his soft rock favs. On 104.5 doing a throw back lunch hour of 90’s big butt songs. On 100.1 with some AC/DC and then on Comedy 1580 am telling jokes.

    While I’m not a huge fan of Doug Gottlieb, I do appreciate an outsiders view on UK athletics (specifically basketball with Doug). Outsider views help you keep your perspective on your team. While you may not agree with their points, you still take them and analyze them yourself.

    Two worst people to be part of hosting have been Cutler and the dude from Richmond. However, the guy from Richmond was better than Cutler because you knew the stuff he was spewing was for ratings and entertainment. I really think Cutler believes the stuff he spews.

    Morning Matt – Since you mentioned hair cut, you might want to think about getting a new hair dresser for you (you did wear a nicer hair for a while, but the photos from Derby are way too short) 🙂

    NO ALAN CULTER PLEASE!

    I personally think the Heat might lose the series either vs. the Nets or the Wizards. It’s certainly a longshot, but I wouldn’t discount it. I will admit that LeBron is at the top of his game and is awesome, but the rest of the Heat are mediocre and I could see a complete team taking advantage of that. Wade is a shell of the player who he once was. Guard Bosh on the outside and the dude won’t score. Wall will shut down Chalmers and that will be huge as Chalmers is essential to the Heat’s offense.

    Neil Brown has been horrific! He put up the same inept numbers as the former coaches that yall hate because their offense was inept. Where the hell is this guy gonna go? Funny how the previous staff was trashed before the season and not given a chance while equally terrible Neil Brown is portrayed as some hot commodity.



    • Delk for 3
      11:13 am May 6, 2014 Permalink

      While I do agree he isn’t a hot commodity right now, I also will not judge him on last season and those sorry players he was given from the previous staff. No coach in the nation could be successful with the poor level of talent they had on offense. He is a young coach who has had some real success in previous stops. I think that is a good sign. As a coach, you usually get a lot better as you age and gain experience. I will begin to expect some real progress on offense this upcoming season.

    • Ditto DF3. The talent left behind by the previous staff couldn’t even beat Sun Belt competition the last 2 years. How did you expect them to compete in the SEC?
