    ^^ Just keep everyone waiting.

    Happy Election day, hopefully everyone will get out and vote! Such great weather for it πŸ˜‰

    This UK hoops thing isn’t going to end is it?

    I have it on good authority that Bolden will not attend the ITT Technical Institute next year.

    If Lee comes back, I hope we welcome him and build him back up. But just between us, I wish he would stop talking. He doesn’t have some amazing offensive skill set that he hasn’t been allowed to show yet, we really could have used that last season. And he doesn’t have any reason to say him returning would make the team go undefeated next year.
    This experience should have humbled him a lot. Best case scenario he comes back and works his tail off to improve and show growth in next year’s combine, but that would be up to him. Also, I hate if he comes back, we get Bolden, and someone else “chooses” to transfer.

      I don’t have the time or attention span at the moment to go through the roster and scholly’s for next year, but I was under the impression that E.J. could go off scholly if we needed to open one up for Bolden.

      Hawkins, Willis, Humphries, Winyard, Matthews, Mulder
      Briscoe, Lee
      plus 5 incoming freshmen = 13

      I’m not so sure about Winyard – if Cal didn’t play him last year when we had a real need for help on the inside, how is he going to break into the rotation this year?

      At this point, I get the feeling that Bolden is going to Duke, as much as it pains me to say that. The rumblings that Marcus Lee might be coming back only heightens that feeling. πŸ™

      if lee comes back and winyard is REALLY not ready, he can redshirt to make room for bolden



    • Realme

      No reason to expect Mulder to contribute either, I just don’t like the idea of bringing someone in and then pushing them out the door.

      Realme, that never stopped RatFace, did it? Still, I want to believe that we are above that.

    Sadly, think it is time to cut ties with Mitchell. They are not disclosing everything that is going on – that much is becoming painfully obvious. Sometimes you have to eliminate the source of the festering infection to allow healing to take place.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:57 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      we are losing recruits left and right simply because they DO NOT KNOW what is going on. if it’s serious enough that they CAN;T speak on it, then Mitchell needs to be gone. If it’s not that serious, then just start talking and stop the bleeding. I’m done defending it at this point. something has to happen. we won’t have a team next year at this point.



  5. Realme
    10:24 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

    I had hoped that Mitchell’s new staff would have stopped the bleeding by now. This is not encouraging.

    Can Cal coach the women’s team as a side job? Maybe he can at least be a recruiting assistant.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:58 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      i’m surprised they don’t already have “co-practices” or something like that a few times a year so that the women could train with the men. but maybe with the differences in athleticism that would just be a waste of time for the men’s team.

      Love Joe B. and he’s entitled to his political opinion; he’s just wrong….kind of like not letting the guards shoot.

      rg454, I think most on KSR know where I stand on our elected officials. The joke’s on us.

    Of course Herbstreet is going to say that this will be Stoops’ turning point – they’re buddies!

    Regarding Bolden; do we really care at this point? Sad thing is we’re not going to get him, and we’ve lost Lee.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:55 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      Like I said in my post above, the fact that Lee cancelled his remaining workouts makes me think that Cal has received information indicating Bolden to Duke, and that Marcus will be coming back.



    • UKinIN
      10:56 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      Without Bolden Duke is still loaded. UK needs him more.



    • UKinIN
      10:58 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      RealCatsFan, if Lee’s decision makes Bolden’s choice I hope UK turns off the lights, locks the door and acts like no one is home when Lee tries to return.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:59 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      UKinIN, we will be pretty loaded too – with or without Bolden. We just might take a little bit longer to gel as a team, but by the end of the season, I think UK will be in excellent position to make a run. We just might need to be patient early on, aka 2014.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:03 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      UKinIN, I don’t think Lee’s decision really has any bearing on Bolden’s decision – I think it is the other way around. I think Lee was assuming that his PT would be limited with Bam, Wenyen, Sacha, and possibly Bolden coming in. Cal probably now knows that Bolden is going to Duke and told Marcus. That info, combined with his poor showing at the combine, made him decide to come back for another year. That’s my theory, anyway.

    It’s cute how Matt still thinks voting matters. Ah to be young and not yet jaded.

    The situation with Mikayla Epps makes me think back to Tayshawn’s senior year on Team Turmoil. We were all thinking that “he came back for this shizit?”

    If any of the top 3 UK Hoops players gets hurt, it is definitely game over. Probably game over anyway.

    Isn’t Bolden the biggest Drama Queen ever? My gosh this guy wants a red carpet to walk in on with trumpets blaring his entrance. Cannot take anymore of him we are fine with or without him if you ask me.



    • Realme
      11:09 am May 17, 2016 Permalink

      It’s the media being dramatic, not him. He just has found it hard to decide. Bet you said the same thing last year about Murray.

      Murray last year was nothing like this. This guy cannot make a decision does that not say something about him.

    RE: Reduction in UK Football season ticket sales: If you sh!t in the pool too many times, eventually everyone gets out. They got what they deserved. It is somehow satisfying when greed gets its comeuppance.

    The constant complaining about redistributing tickets is only coming from the very vocal few who had inherited tickets without continuing to support the school with donations. I am a 20 yr season ticket holder that continued to donate to the school and I have tickets that reflect that level of donation. Complaining because 20 yrs ago your grandmother got good seats that you got to keep and now you don’t have them because you never gave the school any money is just ridiculous.

    This hanging on for months (and longer), waiting on a decision from a high player who wants to be with you for 4 months, is ridiculous. Who cares?

      Some people care about politics. some people care about sports. Some people care about religion. Some people care about science. some people care about reading. some people care about art. But a lot of people don’t care about a lot of those things.

      Why would an entire city celebrate for two weeks for a 2 minute race? because it interests them. who are you to judge EVERYONE else for what interests them?

      Who cares? The answer is many people care about these things. You don’t have to be a prick about it just because you don’t.

      and also, October – April is 7 months.
