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

Story time from the Atlantis, plus Jay Bilas! (Wednesday Show Thread)

@J_Ravenscraft

Good morning and welcome to the Wednesday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio, coming to you live from a boardroom at the beautiful Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Today, things get back to normal a little bit, or, as normal as they can be when you’re doing the show from paradise. Matt and Drew will recap yesterday’s blowout win over Puerto Rico, Cal’s comments on the radio and ESPNU broadcast, and the decision to cancel the annual Alumni Game. JAY BILAS will join them at 11 a.m. to give his thoughts on the Cats, which you definitely don’t want to miss.

But that’s not really why you’re listening. You’re listening for the stories. Don’t worry, judging by some of the SnapChats I received last night, the guys have plenty, including their budding friendship with Morehead State’s Jared Ravenscraft (pictured above) and Marcus Fuggins. Grab your nap mat, because it’s story time.

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

    It’s too bad about the alumni game getting canceled. Even though the game never seem to do as well as the first time they did it, it always seem to be a good recruiting tool

    I am so impressed by the caytes. Enjoy this everyone.

    So when can we have Garry (Uncle Matt) and Mitch McConnell (Ryan) have a debate on something?

    I’ll also be working the UK football games. That will be fun!

    Matt, I think I’ve found the new greeting to replace WhoAHH for your first time callers. Coach Cal’s phrase yesterday during the game…..Give em the Hum ditty ditty!!

    You can still go to iHeart and search for 1080 or 630 and get to the broadcast, though….just FYI.

    Did Drew get the same amount of sleep as the 3 point lines on the court? That’s my point of view.

    Matt needs to stop rubbing in the fact they are looking out over palm trees and the ocean.

    It’s too painful for those of us who aren’t there!!!

    Just kidding…Live it up, boys!

    Now most of the kids are back in school, I hope all the kids call from their class room and upset the teachers.



  17. TrinityPills
    10:21 am August 13, 2014 Permalink

    You guys joke about docking Cal’s pay…but the kids seem to still be defending, running their limited sets on offense, and working hard on the glass. I went and saw Notre Dame play against “the Vicenza All-Stars” last night here in Italy and they looked like they wanted to be anywhere except the basketball court. Brey didn’t have them running their sets and the local team got pretty much any shot it wanted. Be thanksful we have Cal and that we have the leaders on the team we do. Could be much, much worse.

    What was issue with last year’s team?



  19. Edd

    Barnhardt was far from pleased with the Cal Cam, and is working on adding a moonlighting clause to his contract.

    10:25 am August 13, 2014 Permalink

    Here in Louisville, local channels aren’t making a big deal about the games. Then local radio isn’t either, Tony Vanetti yesterday said they look really good,.Drew Deener this morning was making fun of Cal saying what he did yesterday, and said that Cal is already saying that there is going to be team turmoil because of too many good players. Deener and the guy who does the show with him like to snark and make fun of Cal and UK fans, then they talked about how good UL football was going to be.

    This team certainly translates on TV. I have been watching at work and had several ‘WHOAH’ and lol moments that caused several looks from people around me.

    Hey Matt,

    Is it time for Drew to eat crow about Tyler Ulis and not believing the short point guard!?!

    I listened to the game yesterday then watched it after I got home from work. This team (so far) doesn’t have that “walk up and punch you on the mouth cause we know we’re good” attitude like the 2009-2010 team did but when that Puerto Rican guy had that last hard foul on Harrison, Dakari gave him the look like “I will kill and eat you if you even look at my boy again”. It reminded me of Boogie protecting John Wall.

    Did anyone notice the guy in the blue sleeveless tee and jorts who was standing under the basket give an excited fist pump after Alex’s dunk yesterday? Lol!

    tell John Short that he put my wife’s bag of potatoes in the bottom of her cart when bagging her groceries. she then left without them. no potatoes for dinner.

    There was a story on Fox 56 last night on Beep Baseball. John Short made a cameo.

    Matt, how could you cut John Short short on the day he is inducted into the KSR Hall of Fame? Not a move by a great American.

    Matt, have you thought about maybe writing the book on the team’s journey this year since you decided not to last year?

    The office here is buzzing like it is March!!! What makes it better is the Card’s fans are mad as hell. When you look on their faces they just know the inevitable, #9 is on its way. It is just like 2012 all over again.

    I think Matt should break out some “Gary” for Jay Bilas.

    Remember even going back to the John Wall team in early games in the season how sloppy the teams looked. This team shows none of that. It’s like they picked up where they left off on March and went forward. Scary how good we can be. Go cats

    Drew, how is the tinder talent down there?



  38. Insight
    10:52 am August 13, 2014 Permalink

    We also need to go ahead and accept that there is a chance we won’t win it all. If we don’t do that then no matter how fun the season is, we will consider it a failure.



  39. Travis
    10:53 am August 13, 2014 Permalink

    A few things I like about this team is their ability to share the ball for a great shot, their energy and hard work, and finishing runs and putting teams away.

    That Morehead State player with Jared Ravenscraft is not Marcus Fuggins. It is Chad Donley.

    Matt, when you want the best basketball talk, you either get Cal or Bilas.
    This is radio excellence when discussing the game of basketball. No antics needed.
    Much appreciate Bilas taking time to talk to us.

    I’d like to state that Jay Bilas is my favorite Dukie. That is to say, he’s the only Duke player I like other than Grant Hill.



  50. Tim
    11:39 am August 13, 2014 Permalink

    False. Walk-ons will not play much this year. Too many top-tier players to give the minutes to. 75% of the games will be blowouts and Cal will need to give much needed minutes to legitimate players.
