Tate Frazier and Mark Titus host KSR (Wednesday Show Thread)

The college basketball writers/podcasters will be on to talk about their undying love for Indiana, Ohio State and North Carolina basketball, and hopefully they don’t run too many of you off in the process.

If they get too hard on Kentucky, call in and blast back at (502) 571-1080.

    Not sure what to expect from today’s show. I like Titus, don’t know the other guy, but hope thy don’t dwell a lot on their respective fandoms.

    • I agree. I’m off today and I might check in occasionally.

      Apparently Matt made a very bad decision to invite these two terrible big mouth talkers to keep trashing our basketball program, coaches & BBN 🙁 I am out.

    What is an IU/OSU fan…is that a commuter college like IUPUI or IPFW?
    AND, the University of No Classes…

    So is it morally wrong for a coach to focus on recruiting? Is that the point they’re trying to make?

    On another note, this is weird. Matt Elam cannot prove his loudest critic wrong. If he makes something out of his senior year, then McElroy was right, he should have been doing more all along. If he continues to underachieve, then McElroy was right, he failed to live up to what he should have been.

    WHY?WHY would you bring on someone who is a hater of UK basketball? Bye. They suck already

  11. Interesting tidbit: our local morning guys down here are in Bham for Media Days. This morning they interviewed Marcus Spears, and he said that Matt Elam hasn’t been effective because the game has changed. He then said “The days of Terrence Coty are over”, then mentioned how quick and athletic O linemen are now. So, it sounds like he thinks Elam wouldn’t have done well at Bama either. That’s funny since Saban wanted him so badly too.

    I turned the radio on in the middle of that particular conversation, so I don’t know that he was totally trying to take heat off Elam, but it was interesting for sure.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:29 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      I wonder if Elam would have done better on the defensive line. Seems like you don’t have to be quite as quick and athletic as you do on the OL. Just my take on it…

    • J-Dub421
      10:32 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      I hate to agree with McElroy about elam, but I think he’s right. Elam simply hasn’t put in the work. It’s a shame he’s wasting his talent.

    • Stoops basically said the same thing as McElroy last year, but just used different words when he said things like “It’s up to Matt to lose weight and put the work in,” or something similar.

    • J-Dub421
      10:59 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      It really frustrates me to watch guys waste their talent by not putting in the work. That’s why I was always annoyed with Derek Willis. It took him three years to figure it out. He could have been a first round draft pick if he had started putting in the work earlier.

      Good Gawd, 454, you are right! I am trying to do actual work while listening and posting on the site. Let my work distract me from KSR again! 🙂 Yes, and I was actually meaning to say that on the OL you are acting more like an immovable object rather than as an attacker, so my thinking is that Elam might serve better in that role. Jeesh, where is my coffee?

    Every year we get this type guest host. Last year it was PFT & Big Cat. I wonder if they’re going to sue for ripping off their material. I guess as long as they stay away from Wisconsin they’re safe. BBN doesn’t need these people to say nice things about Cal or UK as long as your interesting or entertaining. These guys are neither. Giving the same bland, worn out cliche takes is lazy.

    Lasted about 2 minutes with these guys. I don’t mind having some opposing team fans but can they at least be Funny. PMT is great, Sklar Bros are great but these guys are the opposite of funny. Do they come from NPR or something? Matt has really dropped the ball with some of these guest hosts. I am looking forward to the football coaches and the Sklar Brothers. I’ll give anyone a chance but these two might be worse than that idiot from Cincinnati who complained about Stoops not coming on his show.

    It never ceases to amaze me how petty some UK fans can be. It’s ok to hear opinions from other people that don’t worship UK basketball. Good god man!! The redneck people of Kentucky are embarrassing. It’s just a sports talk radio show.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:32 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      So how well do you think these guys would have gone over well on Captain Suntan’s show if they were talking smack about the KatHo fiasco? Or maybe on a UNC show lampooning the fake AFAM classes? Maybe they could go on Duke’s show and ask why K seems to choke half the time in the early rounds of the tournament? (at least those years when he doesn’t have olive branches laid down to pave his way to the championship game)

      There are plenty of sound criticisms opposing fans make to criticize Cal or our program. These guys just haven’t made any of them. Cal recruits too much. You all have the wrong opinion about Ashley Judd. It’s just not interesting or sensible.

    • Booby Petrino
      11:01 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      I don’t listen but based on what I’m reading, sounds like they suck. Yeah, it’s “just a sports talk radio show”…and it’s one that’s geared towards and mostly listened to by UK fans but apparently they have someone trolling UK hosting. So I can understand why people want them to stop bashing UK, and you calling them rednecks doesn’t make their points any less valid.

    • katfan33
      11:33 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      These guys are fun! It’s nice to have different opinions of UK besides “UK is the greatest at everything”. Look, I live in Kentucky, it’s a poor, mostly uneducated, fly over state, full of hillbilly rednecks. So when a grown man calls in and says “Y’all suck, what gives you the right to talk about UK” I’m calling him what he is… A redneck!

    • J-Dub421
      11:44 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      “Cal’s just a recruiter and can’t coach!” Yeah, that’s a super insightful and original hot take right there. Never heard that one before.

    I don’t want more 4 year players though. Any coach who says they don’t want the one and done players we get is a liar. I like winning. Cal wins. We make deep tournament runs almost every year. Our players go to class and do lots of charity work. What more can you reasonably ask of your coach?

      Yep and I don’t want that back either. But if I could have one Darius or Dominique on the team every year, I’d love that.

    • J-Dub421
      10:42 am July 12, 2017 Permalink

      I’m not knocking the 4 year guys, just the opinion that no players should leave early. There are some people who HATE the one and done thing and think everyone should stay 4 years out of loyalty to the school. Towns, Davis, Wall, Cousins, etc. did not need anymore time in college. Which is why I said we don’t need MORE 4 year players. We have a good balance of 1 year and 2-4 year guys. If you don’t have some NBA talent on your team, you are not winning a title.

    Lol, one guy is a fan of schools with the most miserable human beings as coaches in history. One throws chairs, chokes players, and molests women and the other (Woody Hayes) punches players on the opposing team.

Im all for jokes, but make them funny at least and have a little more material to carry a conversation/topic and not have to turn to Pitino stuff. We know more about Pitino scandals than these two could imagine, so bring something new to the table (see what I did there Porcinis)

      I had my favorite meal, crab cakes, prepared by an air fryer. Worst meal of my life. If you cook something with one you better pour on the salt and seasoning because it is bland and then some. I will never eat a meal prepared by an air fryer again. At my age I am not worried about cooking with oil or bacon grease. Taste is all I worry about at this point in my life.

      This is the problem with today’s hosts. They want to lightly troll and get a conversation going, but the average listener knows more than they do, has talked about their topics extensively already, so they can’t bring anything to the table for us.

    So if K decided that he wanted to move the Duke/UNC series to the stadium where the Hornets play, would he catch one tenth as much crap as Cal gets for wanting the UK/IU game in a neutral site? I think not.

      Went to an IU-UK game at Freedom Hall in the early ’70’s. We lost because they had a stud named Downing. After the game, I caught Rupp’s eye and said “Good game, Coach”.
      He stared at me, and said “What did you like about it”? I said “it was a good game”.
      He then said, ” You’re right”.
