KSR After Show 3/3/16
Welcome to the KSR After Show. We are all ready for the Thursday addition of Kentucky Sports Radio. Let’s see what Matt, Ryan, and Shannon are discussing on today’s show and break it down here afterwards.
Voice your thoughts and opinions on The SO and KSR After Show Hotline at 775-583-7483 you can CALL and leave us a voicemail or TEXT and we will post your comments on the website.
Saturday is Keeneland day and Matt is wearing UK/Keeneland Jockey Goggles that will be given to the student section at the LSU Game. Walking in to Rupp on Saturday you will also be able to stroll through the Keeneland starting gate.
There will be a lot of NBA Scouts at the Kentucky vs LSU Game to see Ben Simmons and our Kentucky guys.
The scouts will be in Rupp on Saturday to see how Ben Simmons fares against Kentucky in a game that LSU has to win to have any chance at a spot in the NCAA Tournament. They will also have their eyes on several players on the Cats roster, including but not limited to Jamal Murray, Skal Labissiere, and Tyler Ulis. Potentially Isiah Briscoe, Alex Poythress and Derek Willis will be on there radar as well.
Simmons gets star calls during games.
He does get calls like Micheal Jordan, Bird and Kobe used to, and that Lebron does now. I get the premise of getting respect but how does that really make any sense? Why do the best players need help from the refs?
Julius Randle holds the record for the most free throws in a season at UK.
Hm if Matt is correct with this statement, how did I not realize this.
If we loose on Saturday we could potentially be the 5 seed in the SEC Tournament and play on Thursday.
If Kentucky happens to get beat Saturday, and if Texas A&M looses, UK will be the 5 seed in the SEC Tournament and play on Thursday. Because of what would then be our record against the other top 5 teams in the conference.
Marco Rubio could be calling into KSR sometime today or tomorrow.
Update: he did not do so today. Maybe tomorrow.
Nate Silver at fivethirtyeight.com has a ranking of teams percentage to win the title this year.
Kansas sets atop the list at 19% Kentucky is projected 8th at 3% Check out the article on fivethirtyeight.com Here
Doug Sirmons will not be officiating at the SEC Tournament.
Thank the Lord.
Andy Buh has been announced as the Special Teams Coordinator for Kentucky Football next season.
Derek Willis caused an uproar around BBN yesterday.
They got a bunny. So Bullitt County.
The Shannon the Dude Free Throw Challenge is Monday at Saint Gabriel. (In Frankfort I believe Shannon said)
Ryan is one of those guys that when their boss isn’t at work for the day they slack off, and does extra when the boss is watching.
Shamey Shamey Ryan.
Swaggy Cal made an appearance on his call in show last night.
Calipari threw shots at Louisville calling it Lewisville, blasted Trump by saying he’s glad we didn’t build a wall into Canada, and boasted that we play 8 on 5 sometimes directed at officiating. Get em Cal.
Tomorrow KSR will be at Cumberland Valley National Bank at 900 Beasley Street off of Winchester Road. They will be giving away Kentucky vs LSU Tickets and as mentioned above possibly taking a call from Marco Rubio.
