Kentucky Sports Radio

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

It’s the National Blogger Signing Day Live Feed!

**All events updated as they occur, beginning from the bottom up**

5:01 pm – A great day all around.

I think we can all be very happy with KSR’s signing day and look forward to integrating these new bloggers into the fold. Welcome aboard to the new crew! For those of you just joining us, please enjoy the live blog from early this morning until now.

4:37 pm — We got Rex!

Just in under the wire we have received word from the owner of Rex — proprietor of the acclaimed REX LOVE OUTSIDE blog that the talented canine will be bringing his talents to KSR in the next year. We’ve been watching Rex for a while and among his astute observations on life, which have included the critical sensation “Love Tuna Garbage” and Apex Award-winning “There Is a Squirrel,” bring a solid knowledge of SEC football and basketball to the mix as well. Love this commitment.

4:15 pm – Barbara Marv picks KSR!

For many, this is the get of the day. Barbara Marv’s blog Learning to Love Myself, Learning to Love Others was hailed as one of the biggest players of 2012 and Marv’s attention to prepositional phrases was called “the best since Carol Farnerton” by Barry Grimes of Blog Review. And I don’t think I need to tell you what another Carol Farnerton means. You already know.

3:35 pm – Titus McElroy chooses Kentucky Sports Basketball Report Daily

Well, you can’t win ‘em all. McElroy’s skill at comparing sports statistics to movie quotes has been renowned ever since his infamous comparison of Vandy’s Jeffrey Taylor to Sinbad in Houseguest. Would have been nice to have him.

3:09 pm – Carlos Hoon is a KSRer!

Here’s a surprise: Carlos Hoon, whose clever and obscure references to the 1990’s have solidified him as one of the most sought-after in this class, opted not to head to Sports Report Radio Today — where he was thought to be a lock — and instead will be joining KSR. Hoon is a great get and we are going to love his Murphy Brown and CeCe Peniston references around here.

2:32 pm 

It’s just now dawning on us that these live feeds probably read better from top to bottom than bottom to top. Oh well. Too late. Sorry.

1:23 pm – Steven Gordon Chooses College Basketball News Report Weekly 

We can’t say we didn’t see this coming, as three-star recruit Steven Gordon’s father blogged at CBNRW himself and reportedly leaned heavily on Gordon to sign there. We didn’t need him anyway; sources tell me that he’s a head case and that his synonyms aren’t as varied as believed

11:08 am – Majuptar to KSR!!! 

Perhaps the most eagerly-awaited new recruit is none other than Cleveland Ohio’s Deepti Majuptar, whose similes and metaphors have been called “as bright as ten suns” and “an erupting journalistic volcano” by Blog Weekly analyst Larry Floyd.

10:11 am – Jim Waxler is walking through that door 

Blog News Today sources are saying four -star game recapper Jim Waxler from Columbus, GA blog Jim’s Things is expected to choose KSR. This could only be great news as Waxler’s subject-verb agreement is one of the best I have ever seen. His coach called his adjectives “dazzling, striking and sensational.” He’s really going to make they syntax sing around here. Mark my words.

9:01 am – Ron Garmand is officially a KSR Blogger! 

The first fax of the day is — as expected — from Ron Garmand, who works at the Barbourville Credit Union and whose blog Kentucky Basketball Nation News has made news lately with a great profile on Orlando Antigua’s DVR season pass prioritizer. A great get and hopefully the start of more to come!

8:15 am – Signing Day Officially Begins 

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Today’s the day we find out who among the blogging masses joins the KSR elite and who chooses to take their talents elsewhere. Stick with us all day long as we update LIVE all the latest commits.

    Hey Tomlin, you might not be aware of this yet but your commitment to KSR has been force flipped to LSR. I try to understand your humor, but it just goes over my head….And then I am left thinking, (this is terrible and not funny) Better luck with those brainiacs over at LouisvilleSportsRadio.

    Keep your eyes glued to the fax machine for the papers from a South American blogger, likely a transfer from La Voz Nacional de Basquetbol.

    Heard KSR may pickup Thameltoe late, he is working on bringing his grades up to qualify.

    4 — You just fabulously illustrated why certain people don’t like Tomlin’s posts: His posts force you to think. Which we just can’t have.

    This is what makes KSR the best Kentucky Sports site on the internet.

    Awesome post. Look forward to Rex and Barb’s posts.

    BTW, I clicked every URL hoping one would be valid. No luck, but still worth it.

    Tomlin knocketh it out of cyberspace. Meanwhile, the power of KSR nation hath crushed the REX LOVE OUTSIDE site.

    Barabara Marv is a HUGE pickup. I’m glad we could flip her commitment from the Chicken Soup for the Soul message boards!

    Maybe I just don’t get it, but this is just awful. Seriously you people think tuna garbage is somehow funny or blogger commits?

    I hear Rufus Leeking has withdrew his name from the International Brotherhood of Roofing Bloggers.

    I am disappointed that Henri, le Chat Noir: The Existential Musings of an Angst-Filled Cat did not make the cut especially since he speaks French and you all are trying to learn some French before going to the French Open. His youtube videos are epic. Here is an example:
