Today on KSR: One Sleepy Moment


Today’s going to be a two-pot of coffee kind of day, thanks to the University of Virginia. At least they made it worth our while.

Billed as a snooze fest, after a slow start the National Championship game turned into an instant classic. Every time you thought Virginia was ready to run away with the game, Texas Tech made a run to retake the lead. The Red Raiders had a three-point lead with less than 20 seconds remaining, until De’Andre Hunter’s corner three forced overtime.

Everybody loves an overtime National Title, right? After all, it was the first since Memphis-Kansas in 2008. Last night’s was actually not good. The basketball was fine enough, but the Cavaliers were in control for almost the entire extra period, one that made the game go to almost midnight. Please, no more 9:20 ET tip-offs. I couldn’t even stay up for One Shining Moment.

Tyler Herro makes a nice cameo, but nobody is featured more than Elite Eight participant Zion Williamson. Drew summed it up best, “Virginia with a nice cameo at the end of One Zion Moment.”

There have certainly been better One Shining Moments in the past. Darren Rovell’s rendition is not one of them.

Tennessee still has its Coach

What a shame. I hear Westwood is beautiful during basketball season, yet Rick Barnes decided to remain in Knoxville. The Naismith Coach of the Year became the latest coach to turn down UCLA to get a pay raise at Tennessee.

“I’m also grateful to our university leadership, which stepped up to show Rick how much he is valued and appreciated,” AD Phillip Fulmer said in a statement. “Our commitment to basketball has never been stronger, and we’re all excited for the future as we move forward.”

More Football

Spring Practice is back in action this morning at the Joe Craft Football Training Facility. The Cats only have two more to prepare for Friday’s Blue/White Game.

After I report back to the blog, the KSR Football Podcast is getting back together to talk about the last month of football and provide a little preview of Friday night’s game. It’s been awhile, but if you haven’t already subscribed to the KSR Football Podcast on iTunes, go ahead and smash that button right now.

Skyline Bets > Every Other Bet

Mike Edwards unofficially ran a 4.5 at yesterday’s second UK Pro Day, but a few NFL scouts’ stopwatches clocked him at 4.44 in the 40-yard dash. That was his ultimate goal, if not to move up draft boards, to win Skyline from Lonnie Johnson.

“(Johnson) called me at like 2 o’clock in the morning, and I was like ‘Dude, I’m trying to get ready, trying to sleep.’ But he got me pumped up, said, ‘If you run a 4.4, I’ll buy you Skyline. If you don’t run a 4.4, you’ve got to buy your own Skyline.’ You already know I had to run a 4.4 then, so I ran a 4.4.”

Reid’s Best Moments

The Journey has ended, but the KyWildcatsTV crew is still at work. They’re recapping the season by profiling each player, starting with the senior, Reid Travis.

Welcome to Baseball Season

It hurt typing those words. Now that basketball is over, we must face it head on. Or we could just ignore it a little longer. Derby season anyone?

King Rex on KSR

Rex Chapman will be on your iHeart Radio airwaves this morning with Ryan Lemond and Drew Franklin from 10-12. Don’t miss it.

      If KY was in it and lost to TX Tech, we would have to hear for the rest of our lives how only 2 teams from TX have ever won and both times it was against UK.
      How TX Western beat the racist Rupp

      they already mentioned glory road during the game

      Ur right, we dodged that bullet! And Drew was right – WTF, one Zion Moment is right, the dude went out last week. Was the crew tired? If u want a Duke highlight the Refs should’ve made a cameo, they saved them twice.

      Chris, the apex of irony about that movie and the title is that they stole that from Rupp’s farewell speech in ’72.
      “To those that went down the glory road with me, my eternal thanks…good night”.

      Say, makeitstop, you said your Dad played for Rupp. Care to give me a first name? I probably watched him play.

      Well said, Smyrna_Cat. I must have missed it. A tournament, you say? Didnt tune in to a single game of their shite. All I heard was more officials deciding games.

      Gotta stop feeding that monster until it gets some manners

      Makeitstop for the win!

      One shining zebra/one shining Zion, whatever it takes…

      Network should be called KBS, tourney the NACC INVITATIONAL, and the refs should be on the #&f%! podium.

      Snooze fest was watching non fundamental basketball players beat Wofford 62-56 and Houston 62-58. If we only score 62 vs those glorified mid major teams TTU and UVA hold us under 50. At least UVA plays fundamental ball and the game last night, especially in the 2nd half, was very good and 2 good experienced teams going at each other with big shot after big shot.

    Cats at their best would have destroyed either one of those teams. This should have been our year. Never going to get a path that easy to a title again. But oh well, can’t wait til next year. Go Big Blue !!!

      Cats should have won several by now. They’re not ACC, and Cal doesnt kiss everyone’s ass-ts, so they took them away.

      Sht.. the only reason Rupp is “racist” is that UCLA was paying their players in the 60s. Ssdd

      Last years path was even easier, but yes this years was not the toughest to get to the F4. UVA would have been tough in the F4. But hey we got the best coach according to everyone here. Several coaches would have made the F4 with our teams and those easy paths the last 2 years, just not our coach.
