Today on KSR: At least you aren’t Lee Cruse

It’s been a tough few weeks to be a Kentucky fan.  If you’re feeling down about the losses, just remember, it could be worse.  You could be Lee Cruse.

The Hey Kentucky co-host and Funkhouser Podcaster made a not-so friendly wager on the Tennessee game with his Live with Lee and Hayley co-host, Hayley Harmon.  After Lee’s Cats lost to Hayley’s Vols, he had to get a T cut into the back of his head on live television.

Cruse must be commended for not balking on the bet, but that won’t stop me from laughing while he agonizes during the embarrassing haircut.  Let Lee’s pain give you joy and exorcise your UK losing demons (the cut begins around the 3:30 mark).

Stoops isn’t Throwing Anyone Under the Bus

There’s no panic from Mark Stoops after Kentucky’s loss to Tennessee.  On his call-in show, he freely accepted criticism from fans, but refused to call out coaches or players by name.

“We accept that, but you’re not going to sit there and point fingers and cast the blame on people,” he said. “Because they’re also the same people that put us in a position that we’re going to win the most games we have in school history in the last, what, 40 years?”

It’s a fair response from Stoops.  Now he must make sure his team returns to form and takes care of business in the final two games of the season.

A Late Kickoff

For the first time since the Governor’s Cup was moved to the last game of the season, the Cats and the Cards will not kick off at noon.  Game time has been set for 7:00 at Cardinal Stadium.  If you can brave the cold night to enjoy the Three Stripe Life, there are plenty of tickets still available for as low as $38.

New Football Podcast

Wanna figure out what’s really wrong with the offense?  Listen to the latest edition of the KSR Football Podcast.  Talking about the team’s problems isn’t incredibly lighthearted, that’s why we finished the show with a celebration of UK’s senior’s class.

Coach Cal at the Podium

After spending a few days lying low with his team, John Calipari will be back in front of a microphone this afternoon around 2:30 to tell us what the Cats have been up to and provide a preview of the North Dakota game.

Get used to Nashville

The SEC Tournament isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.  Today officials are expected to announce the SEC Basketball Tournament will remain in Nashville until 2035.  The contract in Nashville has been extended ten years.  Outside of 2022 in Tampa, prepare to spend one weekend each March at Bridgestone Arena.

UK Soccer to Host in NCAA Tournament

The Cats drew the No. 3 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.  The C-USA Champs will play at home up until the Final Four, beginning at The Bell this Sunday at 4:00 against the winner of Portland-UCLA.  Get your tickets now before they’re gone.

Hue and Marvin

Hue Jackson is going back to Cincinnati.  The head coach of the Cleveland Browns just a few weeks ago, Jackson is getting the band back together with Marvin Lewis.  It actually worked well for the Bengals last time, but after Jackson’s tumultuous tenure in Cleveland, this match made in heaven will surely end disastrously.

Fox to Willie

It was a great night in the BBNBA.  Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns each posted 25 and 20, while De’Aaron Fox and Willie Cauley-Stein lobbed their way to a win over the Spurs.  The Kings improved to 8-6 and are now eighth in the Western Conference.

    Bad times in the bluegrass when we have to hype up Soccer. Nothing against soccer, but just goes to show how bad it has gotten in the last 2 weeks for our most popular sports.

      Hey Eeyore, they aren’t exactly ‘hyping up’ soccer, but of course they are going to talk about it since it’s the best our team has been in years…and they’re in the NCAA tourney as a 3 seed. They talked about football and basketball and finally threw soccer in down near the bottom of the post. Times aren’t really that bad in the bluegrass, our football team can win 8-9 games this year and our basketball team isn’t going 40-0 but can still have a great season. It’s only bad times for those who for some reason think we’re going to win every single game.

      Literally the first sentence of the post was “It’s been a tough few weeks to be a Kentucky fan.” Not sure what soccer has to do with that, but UK is hosting NCAA tournament games. I couldn’t care less about soccer, but I don’t see any hype here.
