Time to talk about Cal’s comments and the weekend (Monday Show Thread)


John Calipari just dropped another bomb on his website by announcing his plans to retire at UK and break UCLA’s record before he does. Cal’s latest essay gives Matt and Ryan plenty to talk about on today’s show, as does the NBA combine and more from the weekend.

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

    Hopefully no wind on today’s show, so were you able to get Bill to come on the show?

    Ryan, how did the Dancing with the stars go?

      Just don’t miss this:

      That’s probably all you missed.

      I read that story waiting for a table at dinner one day last week and that’s when i felt left out a little. Originally i was just going to cut my losses and start anew this week. but hey, with podcasts i can listen as fast as i want and skip all the commercials. so why not

      I kind of like coming back from vacation knowing I have a pile of podcasts to catch up on.

    Would love to see a “ring of fire” of the rowdiest students all the way around the lower arena. This would be a deal where you would want some type of lottery or have them stand in line for them to ensure you get the most devoted, crazy fans down there.

      That would be neat. we don’t need to give out entire sections to students. Maybe the first few rows, that would force the people that don’t feel like they have to stand up to get into the action or they won’t be able to see. Then again, you think they would stop paying to go to games if that were the case ?

      That is not going to happen, if you think you are going to move the rich old people from their current seats..the program will have $0 for any future upgrades. Get used to it

      unless they move into luxury suites. not suggesting to kick them up into the nosebleeds. i’m also not saying it’s definitely going to happen. but it’s certainly feasible

      The trick would be to give them a better alternative, ala luxury suites. As bad as I hate Tennessee, Rupp Arena needs to do what Thompson-Boling did a few years ago by taking one side of the upper arena and building suites for the fat cats. That frees up a lot of the lower arena season tickets seats for students. The question is who pays for it? UK doesn’t own Rupp Arena and I’m not sure if Lexington would be interested in spending that kind of cash on something that will basically only be of benefit to the UK men’s basketball team.

      Yeah Rupp is way behind in the suite category. All stadiums/arenas are doing upgrades to put them in, except Rupp and maybe Chaminade idk

      People like Dale are the reason that Rupp is caught in a 70’s time warp in respect to amenities… πŸ™

      I was watching a game last year, and they had an interesting layout for their lower arena. They had luxury suites right down by the court, and then had the student section on top, with a series of lower level seating above them. Can’t remember what stadium, I think it was a school in Ohio.

    Also, UL should be a 14pt + favorite…we have sucked in football and no reason to think otherwise this year. I hate being negative but I cant keep drinking this Stoops kool aid without seeing positive results.

    Gotta remember those billion dollar hotels in Vegas didn’t get built by all their oddsmakers setting the lines at stupid levels.

    Wow, so they finally did a penis transplant, huh? That will open a can of worms (no pun intended). Do you think “Blackzilla” will put his up for auction? (when he’s done with it, of course!) πŸ˜€

    The best Metallica song is One and And Justice For All is the best album in existence. The idea that Matt picked it out blows my mind, he’s usually so terrible with music.

      “King Nothing” is one of my fav’s…

      Metallica is great, but why ignore Black Sabbath, Led Zepplin, Iron Maiden, ad naus…..

    It will never happen, but I wish UK would play a marquee opponent at Memorial Coliseum for the students.

    I still think Casey did not mail that money. No one at UK mailed that. Read up on it, and the lawsuit Casey won against Emery.
