Because it was a good one. Today is Matt’s birthday, and he was serenaded by both Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear AND Kentucky Joe. How many people can say that? Fake Barney also had a special song for Matt midway through the second hour, and it was so good, I made a YouTube video of it for you.
A variety of guests also called in to give their predictions for the season. Here’s how each think the football Cats will do this season:
Mary Jo Perino: 5-7, with an upset of Mississippi State
Alan Cutler, LEX18: 5-7
Gregg Doyel, CBS Sports: 3-9 (ouch)
Tony Vanetti: 5-7, with wins over Vanderbilt and Florida OR Mississippi State
Brian Milam, WKYT: 5-7
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear: 4-8 (After he claimed he was an eternal optimist)
Lukasz Obrzut: 5-7, with upsets of Vandy and Tennessee
The KSR staff will unveil their picks tomorrow.
