    Pretty bad when your own conference runs you down like that. Hope he is eating some serious crow this morning.

    Good on him for that. But if we lost, you know he'd be shouting about how right he was and how fraudulent this team was.

    I agree. You would think our own conference media wouldnt be running us down like this? He shouldnt get off the hook easy on this.

    Im not going to speak for Matt, but I think winning Friday probably proved his original tweet/take was wrong. Sunday's performance just shoved the crow down his mouth. I would say he would be gladly eating a healthy dose right now of that crow on his radio show if it werent for the issue with Mrs Gregg Marshall at the UK-Wichita State game

    BTW, congrats again! Y'all's team handled that game yesterday like it was old hat. Well, well done.

    Appreciate it. I agree. The only point I was making was why do that in the first place? Why send something like that even if it were true? Again it was from a writer in our own conference.

    Jones is a bit of a provocateur in the Finebaum mold. I wouldn't consider him a journalist. No big deal. He ate his crow.

    It wasn't actually a writer. It was King Ward.

    Steady progress. Maybe this could be the start of the Kentucky sports media taking a firm, i.e. imo, moral, stance on the absurdity of KY's recruitment of OAD's via the 'honorable' Mr. Calipari leadership au UK.

    What's immoral about playing within the rules?

    Was about to say...

    Aren't we hoping one of those OAD's decides to head our way instead of heading to Duke?

    Can you imagine if we land Zion? Last night put us on the map as a program, sealing the deal w him makes us a major player in the recruiting game too.

    SEC basketball has been so disappointing for so long, I think he was just surprised at the seeding for USC. Believe me, Matt hates Duke and Louisville more than he hates Isis, I'm sure he is thrilled to admit that he was wrong about the Gamecocks.

    Surprised is one thing. He hurled a rock directly at us so there is a difference. You may not see it that way but after the way they left us out last year it was big for us to get in. Then to have someone like that running their mouth. I saw his Twitter and he is getting hammered, (and he should). After someone questioned him about the bracket and what he said before it started, here was his response:

    Matt Jones‏@KySportsRadio Mar 12




    @traeallison888 I did. But the team playing in the tournament is that one...not the one from January


    So he deserves all the heat he is getting. You can have an opinion and its his job to have one. But to make statements like that which only do another program harm isnt right.

    He went to law school at Duke, but he despises them, despises Coach K, and was giddy about your win on his radio show this morning. No hidden agenda here.

    As UK fans, we want to see the SEC step up year-in and year-out. No reason Carolina can't be a consistent force in college basketball.

    OK, fair enough. I guess I just don't get hot and bothered why any of these talking heads say. For me, I'll always have a soft spot for USC after last night!

    I have yet to see video/audio of her doing anything but cheering for her husband's team. If you have it please link it.

    Frank Martin then Matt Jones were on Fine baum.

    Paul asked Frank about the comment, Martin said I don't know who that is but if he said that he must not be to good at his job, LOL.

    There are several videos on this page. The second of which shows her yelling the F-word. There are also numerous reports of other non-UK affiliated journalists (Kyle Tucker from SEC country, Pat Forde who hates KY, et al) who confirm the fact that she was A) wasted, B) yelling obscenities at the referees and UK players, and C) was escorted out of the building by security.
