We’re almost there, folks. In 26 hours, we’ll finally be watching Kentucky football, which means the long offseason is finally over. Get ready for tomorrow’s game by tuning into Kentucky Sports Radio, which is coming to you live from a radio studio in Manhattan. The guys went out to celebrate Matt’s birthday last night, so hopefully we’ll hear some good stories, as well as all of the football previews you can dream of. For some of you at least.

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

    One thing that does give me hope for this football season is the last 2 seasons there has been 2 SEC teams to come from no where to surprise a lot of people. In 2012 I remember Phil Steele ranked Texas A&M as one of the worst SEC teams for quarterbacks. Last year we thought Missouri was the one SEC game we had a good chance of winning. Could there be another team to make a make a big jump this season?

    Matt – not sure that was my idea of a 4-star lock, but I gave up 6 points and I am willing to ride that luck. Make it a little less stressful next time if you don’t mind

    I’d take 24-0, but if we’re giving up 21, then I want to be in the 40s

    Sell Beer at games for one. Two provide a Student Discount on Beer. Three keep the game competitive into the 4th quarter…There it is the blueprint to get more students to attend games and stay at games

    People don’t have disposable income like they use to Matt, plus everything is a lot more expensive now & going up thanks to your liberal party so get out of your bubble & try to understand this when yacking about attendance to games!



  28. Bentucky
    10:33 am August 29, 2014 Permalink

    also you want to know what killed attendance? Lee Todd not letting people park in the grass fields between south campus and the stadium, you used to be able to show up early park and tailgate out of the back of your truck or suv from the grass then go to the game. Now it is such a hassle to get your tailgate gear to the area it is easier to just watch it at home and grill out there. Blame Lee Todd

    Wait what is going on with everybody suddenly claiming that Cal is leaving after this year? I missed it, but that would totally contradict what Cal has been saying in his recent interviews.



  34. What

    re Cal: There’s really no way to predict what will happen, because no one knows what the circumstances will be when the time comes. “Fate” could intervene again. But, it is depressing to think about him leaving, and I wish I hadn’t heard Matt’s comments today.

    Honestly why even stir a rumor that like up? What good comes out of that for the fan base, for the basketball program and for the potential recruits that are all over Twitter? I usually defend Matt but it’s just stupid to make a statement like that.

    • Original MarkyMark
      10:49 am August 29, 2014 Permalink

      Exactly, what is the objective of making a statement like that? To quote Calipari’s previous comment during the Bahamas trip

      “This could be special,” Calipari said on the UK/IMG radio broadcast. “But you know what? They’ve got to be mentally tough enough to not be sabotaged. And the sabotaging will not come from within; it’s going to come from outside. And for our fans, don’t buy into it. Don’t you buy into it. Don’t you buy. Don’t talk about it. Understand what they’re trying to do. It ain’t going to crack me because you people know I’m like — you ain’t moving me at all. But don’t let it move anybody else.”

    Oh Matt come on…why would you say something like that about Calipari leaving! – Amazing that you could put that out there……Our recruiting for 2015 has already taken a hit or two or three. People know how close of a relationship you now have with Calipari – so they are going to think you have the inside scoop on this..and he really has decided he is going to leave after this season. I’m a huge KSR fan, listen every day. But today you pissed me off! – Thanks for ruining my day……….

  68. realme

    The comparison to Rex is a somewhat valid because of the timing. You made an about face in your prediction about whether or not this is Cal’s last year, and you did it the day before football starts. Then you act befuddled that people are upset.

    Matt the reason everyone is making a big deal out of what you said is b/c this is a complete 180 from what you’ve been saying. When Ryan and Drew said Cal’s leaving you hammered them saying no way he’s leaving after this year.
