Today on KSR: The Worst Way to End a Season


Every season-ending loss is painful, but some hurt exponentially more than others.  The Cleveland Cavaliers did not need to cry any tears after they were swept, but De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo shed quite a few after the buzzer-beating loss to North Carolina in the 2017 Elite Eight.  If you thought that was bad, watch this:

Off the glove, over the fence, game (and season) over.  Instead of upsetting the No. 1 team in the nation on the road to advance to the College World Series, Auburn’s season ended.  Ouch.

How Bout that Score, eh?

Team USA shot Panama into the stratosphere in the Americans’ second game of the U18 FIBA Americas Cup.  Panama did not score until the Americans built up a 48-point lead.  Team USA led 70-8 at the half and 99-18 after three quarters before the final horn sounded with a 118-26 American victory.  It’s difficult to analyze the X’s and O’s from such a game, but T.J. Walker got a few excellent quotes, most notably this one from Cole Anthony:

“I love Tyrese (Maxey). That’s my dude, I’d love to play with him at the next level.” Anthony added, “He’s a good friend to be around.”  The No. 1 guard in America has kept his recruitment quiet, but he may have tipped his hand a little in Canada.

Former Tennesse Signee Commits to Kentucky

Yesterday the Cats added an edge rusher to the 2019 recruiting class.  Marquez Bembry initially picked Tennessee over Kentucky in 2017.  After signing with the Vols, he spent last season in the Mississippi JuCo ranks before deciding Kentucky was his ideal SEC destination.  Originally from Atlanta, Bembry was the nation’s 27th-ranked athlete in the 2017 recruiting class.

Cats to Host 4-Star Defensive End

One of the nation’s top pass rushers will be in Lexington today.  Michael Fletcher, a 6’5″ 240-pound 2019 prospect from Flint, Michigan, is bound for the Bluegrass for an official visit.  A Top 300 player in the 2019 class according to 247 Sports, Fletcher will choose between UK, Alabama, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Michigan and Nebraska on June 29.

UK Target Sets Decision Date

A day after taking an official visit to Missouri, Louisville Manual running back Aidan Robbins set a decision date.  Robbins will make a commitment tomorrow, pre-empting an official visit to Kentucky that was scheduled for next weekend.  Not a good sign for Kentucky’s chances.

Props to Pete Davidson

Somehow, this (kinda) funny guy from SNL…

…convinced this girl to marry him.

Davidson might just be the smartest man alive.  It was a shock when they started to date a few weeks ago.  He was wise enough to strike while the iron was hot to lock it up for good, even though I have a feeling this engagement won’t last for long.  Speaking of engagements…

Wedding SZN

In just over two weeks I’ll be saying “I do,” and I’m not going to lie, I’m freaking out a bit.  There’s nothing wrong.  There are no last-minute fires to put out, my fiancee has been spectacular and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her, but I can’t keep my nerves in check.  Please, if you have any tips, I need all the help I can get to make sure I’m not a complete nervous wreck from now until June 30.

Happy Birthday Drew!

The hardest-working man in show biz is celebrating his special day by taking some time off to stare into the New York City skyline.  Enjoy it, Drew.

    Nick, several years from now you will look back and laugh at yourself for freaking out about this wedding. Let your fiancee and her family do that. I’ve been married since 1994, so I know a thing or two about this. This will seem like small potatoes eventually as life becomes more and more complicated.

    I feel ya, Roush. I’m getting married on Saturday and I’m feeling the same way. I love my fiancee and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her, but I still have the nerves. I just want everything to go perfectly for her. I think that’s the root of my nerves over this. Just hang in there man. That’s all I can offer.

    Macattack and Roush – start with this: something small will absolutely go wrong. It just will. Nothing goes perfectly, and that’s ok. The important part of marriage isn’t the wedding ceremony, it’s what you do for the rest of your life together that matters. Weddings are just huge, expensive, fancy parties, so treat it like one and remember to have fun!

    “Davidson might just be the smartest man alive.” It doesn’t take a lot of intelligence to get a dumbass to commit to you. Grande is pretty and that’s pretty much it.

    The stats say over half in in divorce

      That number skews pretty heavily toward couples that got married in the 70s, 80s, and 90s when getting married in your teens and early 20s was much more prevalent. Millennials mostly tend to not get married until their late 20s or early 30s and the divorce rate at that point is much lower than the late teens/early 20s group.

      So they really haven’t been married long enough to even be a statistic

    The worst way to lose a game is to blow a 28-3 late 3rd quarter lead in the Super Bowl to the Patriots. There isn’t another option, everyone else is arguing for second worst.

      Failing to cover the wide open WR (twice), then missing a field goal because of a holding penalty is so close to that mark though…
