UK Fans of the Day Want an Answer to the “Shovel” Question

10007045_10152385120721532_7888298067675941041_n

Unless you have been away from the internet for the last couple of days, chances are that you have seen this Vine below, which we will dub “the shovel video”

Two girls get in a fight, it escalates and one hits the other with a shovel…what are you gonna do, things happen. But this has led to much discussion about what leads one to throw a shovel and today led “Todd the Bod” to come up with a hypothetical on KSR Radio (don’t let this change your opinion on whether I like “Todd the Bod”…I dont…but you have to give it up when someone raises a good question). He wanted to know, what UK villain of the past or present would you want to have for a shovel throw? There are of course a couple of parameters…like in the video, you would not want the person to be hurt. Sports are all fun and games and no one should be hit for anything having to do with them…but if you were to guarantee one fun shovel throw with no harm, that is a different story. And there would be no repercussions to you either, aka you won’t go to jail…it would simply be a slow-mo shovel throw and then we could all move on with our lives.

Shannon the Dude picked Joakim Noah…Ryan Lemond had the surprising pick of Ron Slay and I said that my real answer was not something I could say on air because I would get in trouble (if you listen to the show, you know which name I am not supposed to disparage). So who is yours…in this hypothetical shovel world, who would be in your Vine? It is a question that I know you would ponder…use your shovel throw wisely…we don’t get many.

    I’d have to say Joakim Noah as well, he was the first guy I really hated when I was younger cause he was so good.

    The two girls were friends and decided along with their boyfriends to try some swinging. Girl in the pink ended up sleeping with other girls boyfriend and of course the other girl got jealous. Which is what les to the fight. If you have seen the entire video you would know the girl in the pink whooped the other girls butt and the shovel toss was retaliation from all of the above.

    There’s only one true answer for any WILDCAT fan!
    Christian Laetner! The only difference is, I would want to hurt him!

      Thank you! All show long, that name never came up, I couldn’t believe it. But I may have to slide Bobby Knight into the top spot, just because Laetner has seemingly mellowed over the years. He coached the “Villains” team, my uncle even has a picture of him signing my uncles “I Still Hate Laetner” shirt. Also, I mean, how big of an ass has Knight become, he should not be allowed on TV.

    Steve Spurrier, but it would be a two handed “swinging for the fence” shot to the grill. I want to see that damn visor go twenty feet in the air.

    Only in Kentucky is a ‘good question’ who would you like to throw a shovel at.

    The girl hit with the shovel had a concussion and is still deaf in one ear.

    Pretty sadistic question. Maybe we should be asking what radio show host would we most like to hit with a shovel?



  18. Steven

    Expanding on what Todd said, make a tournament to see who UK fans would like to hit most with a shovel. Have a bracket and everything and let Ryan host round by round match ups over the course of the show. People vote for each matchup on the KSR site.

    Matt, a while back you guys did a bracket matching up “KSR Legends”. I think this “off season” needs a “UK/KSR VIllians” bracket. Match up players, coaches, journalists that have trolled against UK in the past. The winner will deserve their “One Shovel Moment”…you think Fake Barney would sing it?

    I’m still salty at Dwayne Wade. Maybe a plastic snow shovel would suffice.

    Christian Laettner. He’s been the “villain” for so long and even though many have come and gone, he’s still so smug about that shot. The only people who really remember him are Duke fans and Kentucky fans. If it wasn’t for that shot, he would have just been another good college basketball player.



    • Catlanta Fan
      10:45 am May 8, 2014 Permalink

      Uhhh…I’d have to disagree with your comment about him being just another good college player. He’s actually considered to be one of the greatest college players ever even without that shot. That shot definitely helps his case though!



    • catdaddyd
      1:32 pm May 8, 2014 Permalink

      He’s one of the top 5-10 greatest college basketball ball players of all time. Four straight final fours, with back to back championships.

      He would only accuse you or the shovel of racism.

    I’m confused how we are regarding shovel throws as playful. If pro football players all have brain damage despite helmets, I’d imagine that people hit in the head with the blade end of a shovel can suffer some serious damage as well.

    Hypothetically bringing harm to athletes that work their butt off to beat you is bad taste, and it only serves to keep KSR in the minor leagues of sports coverage.
