Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

UK Soccer’s Wednesday Morning Wakeup


Kentucky’s men’s soccer team moved to 3-0-1 on the season last night with a win over Louisville on Abe Lincoln Night at The Bell. A nasty header from Noah Hutchins and the Cats’ clean sheet were enough for the 1-0 victory over the Cards.

Check out that winning header:



We will hear from Mark Stoops on the SEC teleconference, DJ Eliot after practice.

There will be lots of talkin’ from the football program today as Coach Stoops is scheduled to appear on the SEC teleconference later this afternoon, followed by DJ Eliot and the defensive side of the ball available for questions after practice. We’ll have it all right here for you on So check back a little later for that.

Eddie Gran chatted after practice yesterday.

Watch Eddie Gran’s Tuesday comments here:

His message? “We’ve moved on. You have to put it behind you. There’s 12 more games left.

I’m a big fan of him saying 12 more games left. Love that confidence. Hell, let’s say there’s 14 more games left.

We’re taping a new KSR Football Podcast today.

It will released this evening, assuming Nick doesn’t find a way to mess it all up. And he probably will.

Send us your questions on the Twitter device before 11 am to hear them discussed on the show.

Freddie will preview Florida on the website this morning.

Meanwhile, I will be locked in a room with John Calipari for an hour or so for his annual roundtable discussion. That interview will be embargoed until October, so don’t ask me to tell you anything about it until then. I don’t want the media relations crew breaking my legs for breaking the rules. I’m a rule follower, forever and always.

DeAndre Ayton committed to Arizona yesterday.

Kentucky basketball fans were teased by a potential surprise commitment from the No. 1 recruit in the nation on Tuesday. DeAndre Ayton, a five-star big man in Phoenix, caught everyone off guard by announcing Tuesday afternoon he planned to commitment to Arizona, Kansas or Kentucky during the 6 pm edition of SportsCenter. There was some short-lived hope it could be Kentucky, but Arizona was the pick in the end.

      Don’t be an ignoramus. It’s called Kentucky SPORTS Radio. And after Saturday’s pitiful football performance, I welcome any and all good UK sports-related news…

      If you’re “always appreciative” then you wouldn’t complain about it. You’re as appreciative as Brian Long. Besides, it’s not like we can’t talk about anything else just because it’s football season. Some of us are capable of discussing more than one topic at a time.

      Wasn’t talking to either one of you; if I want your opinions, I’ll kick your cages.
      Wait, let’s run that whole thing back…..
      I’ll never want your opinions.

      The rest of the world appreciates your use of the proper name for “soccer,” Running. It is, in fact, *football* season and UK just beat Louisville at it in their match last night.

    Better to lose now than later, but we have to be at least a 10 pt dog to Florida this week.

    Just how bad is our defense? Will the coaches tell us?

    It opened at 16.5, it will get higher, you might see them raise it to get UK money in the pot. Thinking it may go as high as 18, maybe 18.5. Defense ranks 113 of 120, according to NCAA statistics. Worst in the commonwealth, worst in the SEC.
