Kentucky Sports Radio

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

The waiting continues… (Thursday Show Thread)

harrison-sleep

Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Thursday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio. Today, Matt and Ryan will discuss the ongoing draft decisions by UK’s players, Jalen Whitlow’s transfer, and any news that comes out of John Calipari’s 10:30 a.m. press conference (which will most likely be about his book).

Also, if you missed the news last night, Governor Steve Beshear, House Speaker Greg Stumbo, Senate President Robert Stivers, and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray have all agreed to come on KSR in a few weeks to debate the Rupp Arena funding issue, so I’m sure they’ll touch upon that as well.

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

Topics include:

— Harrison Twins in Orlando?

— Jalen Whitlow transferring

— The Rupp Arena debate

— Tucker Max and John Calipari???

— Much more…

    Jefra has been relatively quiet on Survivor the entire season, but thought it was interesting they had her do the final part of the rewards challenge. It was a big chance for her, but the team that won was so far ahead that it really didn’t matter. The alliances seem to be really messed up now, so next week is important to see how everything shakes out.

      No. However, they could either have a schedule where their classes are on M-T-W. They may also have a few online classes. Or they may have classes where attendance isn’t required. I had a few when I went to UK. Being in class is helpful, but I just followed the syllabus, and kept current with my reading while missing a few classes from time to time.



    • Delk for 3

      ^^Exactly. This idea that you can’t leave campus and keep grades up is bogus. I went on multiple trips while a student at UK and missed class from time to time to facilitate those trips. I was a 3.5 student throughout college and those trips never had any negative effect. If the twins happened to miss a class or two on Thursday (they may have not), it doesn’t mean they are bad students.

      Did she make a big story about them not being in class while they were ironically on a flight with the UL baseball team? When I did have Friday classes one semester, there were times where I went home early for a long weekend. I did just fine in class. Strange. I guess she is an idiot, although I have no idea who she is thankfully.

    Like I’ve said on here before, Aaron Harrison is the better of the two twins and is much more liked by NBA guys than his brother. Reading Rex’s article makes that pretty clear. Neither one should leave, though, and I think it’s 100 percent that they are returning to Lexington.



    • lonnieb
      11:00 am April 17, 2014 Permalink

      that is completely false. andrew could be a potential monster PG. Aaron is an average size SG with limited athleticism. I love him and wish him the best with whateverhe decides. andrew has significantly more upside once he really learns to use body (and he will dont forget how easy high school was for him being a 6’6″ PG, and how much he figured out by seasons end this year). A lot of people just dont understand the differences between college and NBA. You can count on 1 hand the number of under 6’4-5″ SG’s in the NBA. Most being a bit more athletic than aaron as well. It will be a much harder transition for aaron. Andrew will always have a size and strength advantage over most NBA PG’s.



    • Delk for 3
      11:44 am April 17, 2014 Permalink

      Aaron is a 6-6 2-guard, so what is the relevance of your statement about 6-4,6-5 shooting guards? I know all about the NBA guard and watch it nearly every night. If I’m wrong, I guess the NBA guys are wrong too. Read Rex’s article. I don’t care what you say, though. Your statement that Andrew is more athletic is completely wrong and couldn’t be further from the truth. What are you watching? It is clear that Aaron is quicker, smoother, and more flexible.

    Why do people keep talking about the profit of UL athletics as a whole. Overall as a whole they aren’t in the top 10 in revenue. Basketball is what they are the number one in but other sports are not. Plus its never noted that UL athletics receive $10,000,000 in subsidies when all these other top athletic programs are self sustaining. If UL athletics didn’t receive $10,000,000 in subsidies from the schools general fund they wouldn’t be turning a profit and would actually be losing money. If they were some juggernaut money maker the school wouldn’t need to receive subsidies and the schools money could actually be used for what its designed for and that is education.

      I don’t want to go undefeated. I seriously think that would be a disadvantage going into the post season. Both because they could be overconfident and because they wouldn’t have the motivation of experiencing a previous loss.

      I believe thats about right for Young!! Plus your info on here is always pretty good .. LOL Accept u are clearly like related to Barker or something…Or maybe have something against Towles … Cause if u take what Brown and Stoops have said Towles has received the best reviews.. I think Barker is going to be great but he doesnt have to start this year.. SEC is better then u think , And Towles fell out of favor cause the coaches said bad things about him(and towles agreed) But thats how we came to be down on Towles..Now they say very good things but people wont now believe the coaches..its strange..LOL its the same source as last year!!!



    • Delk for 3
      11:39 am April 17, 2014 Permalink

      I just believe that Barker is on another level talent-wise. I know the SEC is tremendously good, but Towles only slightly has more experience playing than Barker. The thing about Barker is that the kid can move a good bit and has a great ability to make plays when the line breaks down. I think Barker is Stoops’ guy. I don’t believe Towles improved so much over a few months to be able to become our No. 1.

    Donnie Tyndall may have gone to back-to-back NIT’s at Southern Miss, but his records in those years were 27-10 and 29-7.

    Teams were on the bubble each year (probably should have been in) but missed out on an at-large berth when they didn’t win the conference tournament.

    If you can win big at Morehead State (and attract a NBA player like Kenneth Faried there), he would do great at UT. Plus he is Mr. Personality (maybe not to a Bruce Pearl level), but much more so than Cuonzo.

    Just because Andrew plays at the 1-spot, doesn’t make him an NBA-level point guard. NBA people see Aaron as a guy that can do everything Andrew can do, but better. Aaron can give you a guy that score and bring it up the court. He also provides an outside threat. NBA guys also think Aaron is the better athlete. Neither one is good defender, but Andrew couldn’t stay in front of one NBA point guard. He also will not be able to bully guys at the NBA level.

    Comments from NBA people about Andrew. Excerpt from Rex’s article:

    “Not a point-guard in the NBA. Not now anyway. Can’t blow-by anyone. Most college point-guards blew-by him this season. Couldn’t contain the ball. Vital at our level.”

    “Became more unselfish over the course of the year. Not surprisingly, the more unselfish he became — the better your Wildcats played. Still, not enough “pop” in his body to compete nightly with NBA-players at this juncture.”

    “A tough kid who improved greatly as the season wore on. I question his speed and athleticism. Won’t bully guys at this level.”
