Tune in to the Sklar Brothers on KSR (Wednesday Show Thread)

Yesterday’s show drew mixed reviews but we’re back on the straight and narrow today with our good friends, Randy and Jason Sklar, filling in for Matt Jones in the host’s chair. I will also be on air to lend a hand when needed, and we’d love for you to tune in for a comical two hours of KSR.

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

    Yes! Sklar Brothers.

    Show was okay yesterday, just wasn’t a fan of them being Wisconsin fans.

    Yeah, maybe we can get some Indiana fans to do a show too. #rolleyes

    Hope they have some new material. I can’t listen to their Conway Twitty jokes and having Drew re-tell the Marilyn Manson story for a 12th time.
    Speaking of shows I don’t know if I can listen to, should I listen to yesterday’s podcast? I’ve tried listening to their podcast before, was bored (although maybe I picked the wrong day to try them), and find the idea of listening to a Wisconsin fan nauseating, so leaning towards no.

      They’re not bad at what they do, good at their job. Just not sure KSR is their thing. They were trying way too hard to be controversial. Their mission was to agitate UK fans and get ratings. They did both. If that helps. It wasn’t a bad show, but be prepared to be pissed off.

      I’ll help out- don’t bother. That show sucked. Stare at the wall for 2 hours, you’ll probably get more out of it.

      The show yesterday wasn’t particularly entertaining. If you skip, you’re not really missing anything.

      Thanks, ya’ll. I’ll skip it (and save myself some irritation, probably).

    And already turned it off, can’t take this constant talking over the top of each other.

    Not a fan of the Sklar brothers, but they’re still better than Cutler. I guess Josh Hopkins was busy.

      I feel like they’re making a conscious effort to take a breath now and then. Makes them much more listenable, although they are still beating this Conway Twitty thing into the ground. At least they’re not playing his songs.

      You spoke too soon. Conway is rolling.

      Conway Twitty’s lyrics are creepy and just waiting to be made fun of. His music is terrible.

    Maybe contact coach Stoops, Athalon’s 83rd rated football coach (of 128 ranked), and UK’s 12 million buy out man, to comment on his great recruiting classes, and his 12 wins in 3 years.
    JOKER LEFT THE SHELVES BARE! Stoops, cleaned out the safe.

      Go get us a coach, Kudzu. Make it happen.

      Don’t think I could do any worse than Barnhart with that kind of money to throw away.
      I find it laughable, that the FBI is investigating Little Brother for illeagle financial mismanagement of a couple hundred thousand dollars, when UK is getting robbed of 12 million. There has got to be a kickback somewhere to somebody.

      But seriously, we’ve heard your snarky comments. Any coaches you have in mind?

      you find it laughable that the FBI is investigating for financial mismanagement of public funds? So you think the FBI should investigate UK paying Stoops because he hasn’t had the success you expected? Um…okay….weird, but whatever.

      I understand my opinions are not popular to anyone that cares about UK football. I pray for the day I will say to everyone, “I apologize, I was completely wrong.” Should that day come; I promise, I will.
      The UK football program has been mismanaged. Turning it over to Joker, was a huge mistake. It killed all the momentum that Brooks had built, (which by the way had head coaching experience) and gave the keys to someone that had none. We saw how that ended.
      Then UK did it again with Stoops. Guess what? Not much of a change.
      I admit, I am dissapointed. Even worse, I feel like a fool for thinking the current path will eventually get us to a higher level of cometitiveness in the SEC.
      Now, I just hope we are competitive within our own commonwealth, as a top 3 or 4 team against Louisville, WKU, EKU, Morehead and Murray State or any other I have failed to mention (and not meaning any disresect).
      We deserve more than this, at least for $12,000,000.00, I think we do. You should too, if you are a real fan of UK football.
      This year, Barnhart and Stoops will be at the crossroads. We get another season as we had last year, then you will see what UK’s commitment will be to competitive football.

      If you can’t see the change in the right direction with Stoops, its because you don’t want to. This is going to be a tough schedule, but I think we will shock some teams.

      Brother UK Big Board Update, I hope you are right and I hope am very wrong. I will be pulling with all I got, for UK, every game. There are a million and one things that have to perfectly right for the shock to happen. I am hoping it does.
      Being a critic is easy. We can all pick apart anything about everything.
      Just give us a defense.

    76-er’s stands for 76 centers/forwards. That is all they draft. It’s like their management is allergic to guards.

      Hopefully this is a sign that Nerlens will be traded to more of a contender. The Sixers are terrible.

    • J-Dub421

      There’s a rumor going around that the Celtics really want Nerlens.

      Yep, they want Ben Simmons? Another guy that can’t shoot. I’ll retire to Bethlem Royal Hospital.

      Sixers should have the tallest overall roster at this point except that they seem to still, despite only drafting centers since GHW Bush was in office, have only the 13th tallest overall roster. I hate to pile on the Sixers because of the UK connections but as a Celtics fan, no tears falling here.

      I make no claims as to the accuracy of the referenced site

      Saw today that the Pelicans were inquiring and in trade talks for Nerlens and/or Okafor as well.

    If the Wolves take Murray, they’re shaping up to be one of my favorite teams in the future. Historically, I have followed the Magic because of my childhood fandom with Penny Hardaway. They have no hope at the moment.

      Penny was awesome. Had that jersey for sure.

    I have a strong theory that they just replay the same show of the Sklars every year. It has to be either that or they voluntarily do this same dumb routine annually.

    The basketball player/movie puns have been decently funny.
