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

Today on KSR: Doomsday for UofL?

For more than a week, fearful whispers filled the city of Louisville.  Yesterday, Dan Dakich (of all people) became the first to state the rumors publicly.  According to Dakich’s source “inside the room,” Louisville’s NCAA appeal has been denied, which means they’ll forfeit their 2013 title banner and the school will be fined $15 million.

A UofL spokesperson responded: “This is pure speculation. The NCAA will contact the university in advance of any announcement regarding the appeal. We have not been contacted by the NCAA.”

If Dakich is correct, the ruling could be released as soon as today.  If the spokesperson is correct, University-6 could hear from the NCAA as soon as today, making way for a Friday afternoon news dump.  Either way, Louisville’s day of reckoning is coming soon.  In other Louisville news…

Katina Powell Cited for Stealing a Toothbrush

According to Jason Riley of WDRB, Katina Powell and her daughter Lindsay were cited for allegedly stealing a toothbrush at Wal-Mart.  Worth $32, the citation of theft under $500 is a Class a misdemeanor.

That story sounds more like a mad-lib than news.  I think that means it’s time to switch gears.

KSR is going to the Mountains

Matt, Ryan and Drew have loaded up the KSR wagon and made way for the Appalachia.  Their adventure starts in Martin County, but they had to call an audible.  The radio show will now be at Giovanni’s Pizza on 3256 Blacklog Road.  It’s your last chance to see the gang before they get to Morgantown for the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

Cal, Huggins Preview the Match-up

Before they meet on the court, the coaches will take the mic — technically, the phone.  This morning the SEC and Big 12 are hosting teleconferences.  I have a feeling John Calipari will still be fired up; who knows what we’ll get from the Huggy Bear, but I’m sure it will be electric.

Herro Heading to the Hoops Summit

The future Kentucky shooting guard may have been spurned by the McDonald’s All-American Game, but Nike is paying attention.  Herro announced on Twitter he will be one of twelve representatives for Team USA when they take on international competition April 13 at 10:00 p.m. ET in Portland.

Food for Thought

This should get the wheels turning to start your day.

I’m making my case for the golden eagles and the wolf pack, and not just because I’m a fan of the Starks.  The aerial advantage provides a distraction while the wolves take care of business with wise teamwork on the ground.  Who are you taking?

    I’m with you on the golden eagles, they’re actually known to swoop down and pick up bear cubs, deer, wolves, etc (there are some impressive videos online of such attacks if you’re into that). Even the hunter could only take out so many of them before he’s done for.

    If you only get the number of animals in the multiplier, and not the number in the picture x the multiplier (eg 45 wolves – 3 in the picture x15), I would go lion pack over wolf pack provided it’s a mix of lions and lionesses (the females are the real hunters in lion packs). If you get 45 wolves, I’d have to go wolf pack too.

    If you can pick the same thing twice, I’m probably going to pick 2 humans with guns. If not, then it’ll be a human and some wolves. Wolves are fast, and so are bullets, so I like my odds.

    I think I’d have to go with the Hunter and 5 Gorillas, depending on what type of guns and ammo he had. Let the gorillas fend everyone off while the hunter picks them off quickly one shot at a time. If it was just like a regular shotgun that held 8 shells, I’d definitely change this choice. But if it were unlimited shotguns or unlimited ammo like a video game, I think he’d give you the best chance as long as the gorillas could keep him alive. Why am I typing this?

      What if the “them” also has guns and are shooting your gorillas, and at you.

      “Them” are all of those animals. No other guns or ability to use them.

      Read the rules, Smyrna Cat, geez.

    Assuming unlimited ammo: I will take the hunter and lions.

    I’m going with the rats as my first overall pick that means it will be about 230 rats per ground animal and sheer numbers give them the advantage. Then I’m going with the human because I don’t want him to be attacking me and if he has a shotgun he is the only one who could defend against the Eagles.

      Isn’t this an obvious pro-gun graphic? And the problem is that, yes, guns can defend, but guns can also threaten and kill us. I haven’t been attacked by any of those animals. I have threatened twice by guns. Fortunately I have not been shot at … most of us on here can say that … most of the ones shot at are dead and no longer can post.

      First thing I thought is that the overrun factor for the rats is huge and I like your take on the other team not having the guns.

    I’m takin 5 gorillas and 4 lions all day. Your probably gonna die no matter what but that would be fun to watch till you kick the bucket?

    Rats and Eagles. 10,000 is a heck of alot. The hunter couldn’t get a shot off if numerous Eagles were swooping down and mauling him to death. The thousands of rats could hopefully cover all the animals enough for me to escape.

    The Golden Eagles are the most underrated animal based on the comment sections. They are a must. Everything else is up for debate for #2.The Golden eagle is a 3′ bird that has a Horizontal flight speed of 80 MPH and a dive speed of 150 MPH. Oh yea, and they can fly.

    • Mathlete
      10:34 am January 25, 2018 Permalink

      And they’re hyper-aggressive. Golden eagles are known to swoop down, pick up bear cubs, fly up, and drop them for laughs. I’d rather have that kind of crazy on my team, personally.

    • JoeMoney333

      Birds, in general, are some of the most aggressive animals on the planet.

    10,000 mice and 15 wolves. Point. Blank. Period.

    The problem as I see it is you have to take the hunter, because you can’t risk going up against the hunter with so many formidable animals to hide behind. But what kind of gun? How much ammo? If he has one clip he still basically destroys your chances (unless you go the numbers route–rats, eagles, etc.), but pick him and he’s useless in one minute.

    I’ll take the gun and the bears. The bears would give me enough time to shoot myself so I didn’t have to be eaten alive. I’m sure you’re eaten alive in every scenario.

    I would take the eagles and the rats. I don’t think you guys are appreciating how many 10k rats would be. And while all the other animals are being overrun and fending off 150-200 rats all over them, the eagles would be swooping down and messing their stuff up. A gun would do anything against the combined ground and air assault.
