@John at MrSEC
Oh... My bad... I misconstrued your clever article headlined, "Calipari, UK Throw Hat In The Ring For Chicken Of The Week" with a picture of a chicken on it? For every compliment there are 3-4 "We call it Chicken", "too bad he no is longer willing to play .....". Pass on the Leach thing, UK has moved on from Indiana. As an engineer in Texas I am overjoyed with them being replaced with Baylor(because now I can see my cats in a Non-Tourney game).
Perhaps "Defended" was too strong a word, but you definitely let them skate out of town without a bruise. But if you stir the pot so much with UK and the IU thing, why not do the same with Ohio State and them dropping 2 SEC teams recently(UT and UGA)? Call them cowards and chickens, and then go on a rant about how they lose so much to the SEC. That would be hilarious, if there is anything the SEC can all band together about it is hating on the Big Ten and Ohio State.
I would still like to know what schedule your school has. If it's Tennessee I may cry from laughing so hard.

John, what SEC school did you graduate from? Let the record show that Ohio State just cancelled their series with UGA and you didn't call that school or Urban Meyers chickens. You defended that joke of a program by mentioning their contract with the PAC 12 and how their conference is moving to 9 games a season. The same thing is happening in the SEC this year with basketball(2 more games in conference) and you write a huge article about us being chickens? Are you an Ohio State fan?
Apparently the media, bloggers and the UK haters all think UK is Robin Hood. All of other programs are poor peasants that UK has to feed and give money to. UK doesn't owe the "media" or the haters anything. UK would have to schedule every team in the top 25 preseason OOC to appease the universal hatred of the UK Basketball program.
Playing Duke, Louisville, Maryland, Baylor, and a Big East Team(TBD) in 2012-2013 isn't enough. Playing Michigan State, UNC, Louisville, Baylor, Holiday Tournament, and a Big East team (TBD) in 2013-2014 isn't enough. The haters scoff at the "Chickens" for being in talks with Duke for a Neutral contract series; which is something that UK fans actually want(but what UK fans want doesn't matter to the media). I challenge you to give me another school(maybe yours in football or basketball) that has a OOC schedule that even comes remotely close to UK's. UK is still adding teams to their schedule and media/haters whining won't get their teams on it.
UK is going to do what is best for itself. #1 program of all Time, UK can do whatever UK wants to do.
There are too many questions I would like asked about this....
-How does he go about this in the hiring process? Naked pics uploaded with your resume, Wife conducts "private" interviews with him? Most assistants don't have pics of their wives on the internet.
-What about Divorced or Single coaches? Can they file a discrimination suit based on this statement? This statement sure opens up that possibility.
-How does his wife feel about his statement that he basically is checking out his coaches wives?

How much was the buyout? I hope UGA at least stole some money from those scoundrels.
1 year, 6 months ago on Ohio State Cancels Series With Georgia
Based on the 7 most successful programs ever (UK, UNC, UCLA, Duke,KU Indiana and Louisville) here is the total number of OOC scheduled games each played versus each other since 1999-2000) 45 Kentucky 20 Indiana (13 versus UK) 18 North Carolina (12 versus UK) 15 Louisville (13 versus UK) 10 UCLA 10 Kansas 6 Duke.
No one else is doing it. UK is just trying to fit in with the rest of the Blue Bloods.

It's anything but the traditional handshake John. ESPN is covering the event LIVE on ESPNU with Andy Katz being there. There is also going to a follow up special the week after on ESPN for this event. Did Bama have ESPN show their visit? #kentuckyeffect

@John at MrSEC Didn't call you ignorant at all. Thanked you for pointing out that UK was already making plans to drop the Hoosiers before we lost to them. A lot of people think we just don't want to lose our home winning streak and "UK is scared" to play Indiana this year.
Also, the Home Neutral Away Neutral thing was tried in the late 80's.
Anyways keep up the good work, love your site. Never insulted you. When someone says "thanks for pointing out"; it's not always a sarcastic internet troll =)
1 year, 7 months ago on UK-Indiana Battle For The Future Of Their Hoops Series
Drop the scrubs. UK is 18-5 against IU since 1991..... Another thing to note is that IU has no other home and away contracts with other elite schools. There was a reason IU was undefeated last year and UNRANKED. I used to give my UK-IU tix to friends when I went to UK. This game has no national interest compared to the UK-KU, UK-UNC, UK-UL OOC games we played last year. People only cared after they heard UK lost by a buzzer beater, but no one watched the game.
John thanks for pointing out that UK/Cal mentioned before the season started that UK was going to drop one of their 3 home and aways. Cal had a vote on his site for the fans and it was like a 2/3 majority to get rid of the Whoosiers. So people saying UK is scared are just ignorant. John isn't the SEC expanding the total # of SEC conference games due to expansion?
@MizSec1911 That Florida one is really well done.... The aggie one has 0 hot chicks. Take notes from that florida video.

@Statesman LOL @ those 40 year old bama fans rapping about Julio Jones. I was not ready for that link and spit my soda out laughing.
Too Late. I gave up when we didn't go after Mike Leach and retained Joker. The Joke can be on somebody else this year because I am joining my Country Clubs tennis league and playing tennis on saturdays.

SEC fan Come on man. your team is below .500 and your getting TV time for basketball games. I don't know why your complaining. Everyone gets to see your new coach, and that Stokes kid with the size 20 shoes they talk about the entire broadcast. Your program just embarrassed the SEC with the Bruce Pearl Fiasco and your still getting National TV time.
Now im an Engineer by profession and not a TV exec. But, ESPN only has X amount of spots to show games. Top ranked teams are the big draws and get the special preferences for TV times, gameday, and the level of analysts covering the games(dicky V.,all the way down to doris burke). If you really think your program has enough pull to make demands of ESPN then do it. But they will just drop you from TV, and you can play your games on Wed. and Saturdays and lose all your recruiting advantages. 1 extra days rest worth all not being on TV at all?
John at MrSEC Not personal insults or anything of that nature. Just a generalized perception from the alumni/fans of the other 11 teams. I believe you had some articles titled along the lines of, "Its October and UK fans have given up on football and are ready for basketball." When we did our Midnight madness, or whatever. Our football team was god awful, our offense was like 119th in Division 1 at one point. Do not what team you root for John, but as a UK fan I can only take so many 3 and outs before I just stop watching them all together. The South Carolina game where we had like 50 total yards of total offense was when i stopped tuning in. There is always next year. Love your website by the way!
1 year, 10 months ago on UF's Donovan Not Happy About Thursday-Saturday Turnarounds
SEC fanJohn at MrSEC uk gets screwed in Football, the rest of the SEC gets screwed in Basketball. I don't see the problem. Considering all of you including mrsec make fun of uk for being a basketball school. Do I think its fair you have to play Thursday and Sat? No. Do I think most of the schools in the SEC should even be on television? No.
Guess what. In the NCAA tournament you only get 1 day off before your next game. Granted there is no1-2 hour plane ride involved. But you guys are acting like your teams are on 12 hour road trips to get to their game. They hop on a plane for a couple hours.
You all need to put a lid on it. You whine and whine about how getting on ESPN is good for recruiting, exposure, and good for the program. But no one wants to watch you. Im talking about Vandy, and the ENTIRE SEC West. Want to be on TV then play the thursday games. UK is #1 and everyone watches them hoping they lose so ESPN gives them the best spots(super tuesday).
Lets talk about whining. What a bunch of sissy SEC coaches. UK fans dont whine about playing NOON games EVERY saturday in football. Its so fun tailgating at 9 AM!!!!!!!!!!! My friends and I bring Orange juice, bacon, and eggs. We have a good hearty breakfast and then file into the stadium at Noon to watch the cats! Lets also point out that UK games are never televised. Unless you have the DTV sports package like me you can't watch them outside of Lexington. You don't hear us whining like the rest of you pansies about not getting on TV and why are recruiting sucks.
ESPN is just going to make a mockery of UF and ramble on about how Ohio State now has the best coach in College football. Why would anyone pay to go to this game let alone watch it on TV? UF is about to lose all their coordinators and their Offensive Coordinator already left for Kansas.
