    Keep the clothes ON Ryan!
    -and all will be well…

  2. I just read the latest “They won’t say who the QB is” post, and posted this:

    It’s interesting that Clark sounds very much like a Tebow type QB. I knew he was good sized but didn’t realize he was the load that Nick indicates, but apparently with some of the same accuracy issues. He would be fun to watch if he can correct that.

    Imagine small DB’s wondering “Do I have to try to tackle Benny or Danny on this play?”

      If he’s such a mobile QB, with a strong arm, I wonder why he was cast off Ohio State, a program that relies on strong-armed mobile QBs to run their RPO Offense. Hmmmmm.

    Yesterday was “Piss off Tennessee Fans Day” on Finebaum.
    “Ky fans are nicer because they drink Ky bourbon, only degenerates drink Tenn whiskey”.
    Maybe Matt should avoid Knoxville this year.

    • RealCatsFan

      Sounds like Matt and Vanetti also did a pretty fair job of pizzing off the Alabama fans on Finebaum.

    • Yall beat me to it. RCF, why aren’t you and some of our other L’ville listeners at the remote? I would have loved to have been there yesterday and met the guy who’s Twitter video Realme linked.

      Wish I could, but I took all of last week off, and I have Wed, Thu and Fri off next week for the Street Rod Nationals. Have to do a little work to give them a reason to keep me around. Wish the remote had been here last week when I was off.

    • And RG, that’s really cool that you got Rupp’s auto! I have Pitino’s in my copy of “Big Blue Machine” by Russell Rice, but I’m sure a secretary probably did it for him. I knew someone who left the book there for me and they mailed it to me afterwards. I should take it to that “Pawn Stars” guy and get the signature authenticated. Ha!

      It was cool that he invited us into his office, and talked to us for 45 minutes.
      Very gracious; made three random students feel like 5* recruits.

      One of the funniest stories was from Digger Phelps 1st year at N.D.
      He complained the ball had Rupp’s name on it. Rupp told the refs, “fine, go find one with his name, and we’ll use that.

      Years ago when I was in high school, my parents bought me a book and went to a signing with the 1978 title team. One of the players would do some sort of personal inscription for each book and they rotated around who did it for each book. Apparently, once they heard my name, they all started teasing Kyle Macy and had him do the inscription. So, there is a woman in Kyle Macy’s past with my name.

      One more; once he was on a recruiting trip in E. Ky; and stopped to get gas.
      He handed the guy his check, and said “ You know who that is”?
      The guy looked at him for a long time, and said “I hope it’s you”.

    Dayum – I drove the ragtop in, I have a camping chair in the trunk, and it’s slow at work today. Might need to conjure up an excuse to run an “errand” over to Hubbards Ln. 😀

      There ya go!
      Living here in Georgia, I can’t imagine being close and not trying to take advantage.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:47 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      Seriously starting to think about heading up there for the second hour, but not sure if I could get close. Would I draw too much attention pulling up in a 1969 Camaro RS/SS 396 convertible? Too bad it’s the wrong colors – red and black. 🙂

    • Ridge Runner
      11:02 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      Yes, get it painted as rg said. Down here (sec enemy lines)… my vehicle has a Uk license plate where all you can make out is the state of Georgia issuing it. Try to cover all the bases.

    • runningunnin.454
      10:57 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      Time for a paint job.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:00 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      RG, I would prefer blue with white top, but that would hurt the value. (original cars are worth a lot more with the original color/paint)

    • runningunnin.454
      11:32 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      True that. I was driving out in the country one time, and saw a ‘57 Chevy. I stopped, thought I might make an offer.
      The guy came out, and by then I could see there was something terribly wrong with the paint job. I asked the guy who painted it, and he said “I did”. He had painted it with a brush.

    • RealCatsFan
      11:44 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      RG, was he one of those guys who refuses to sell it because he “might restore it someday”, so instead he lets it sit there and rot back to Mother Earth?

    • runningunnin.454
      11:51 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      He was one of those guys that paints a classic car with a brush.

    • J-Dub421
      11:58 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      For painting a car (especially a classic one) with a paint brush, you should have gotten one free punch on him, RG.

  5. Oh, and I didn’t get to listen to Finebaum yesterday, but Vanetti starts off the show saying UL will beat Bama? Come on man! This is like pro rasslin’. You have to try to make it SOMEWHAT believable. There’s no way in crap he believes that, but I guess it probably got Jim from T’town & Phyllis to call in, so mission accomplished if so.

    • RealCatsFan
      10:35 am July 27, 2018 Permalink

      They said on KSR that Vanetti claiming that Louisville would beat Bama prompted Linda from Argo to refer to him as, “Tony Bologna, Over-Cooked Macaroni.”

      I have to admit.. funny stuff there by Linda!

    Hmmmm, the options are endless…

      Today they get Drew, too. Not sure Finebaum listeners are ready for this.

    CG, I see that UK is recruiting a dude named Nico Mannion, who is a ginger. If he signs with the Cats, will that be the first carrot top on the team since your namesake?

      Wonder if Cawood came up with the phrase about “The human victory cigar” for Chris? That phrase still resonates with me.

      And anybody that doesn’t believe us…just ask Benny.
      I would like to see what he could do with Bama’s OL…wait, no I wouldn’t.

    I remembered Benny getting needlessly tossed in out bowl game last year, but had forgotten about SJ getting the completely bogus un-sportsman-like conduct penalty after he got hit 5 yards out of bounds. Now I’m annoyed all over again. That had to be one of the worst officiated bowl games in history.
