The One Where I Bitch About OJ

New post has been requested. People at work thought this was funny so here you go - it's easier than having to "be creative.

Tragedy struck this afternoon as I went to the refrigerator to wash down my delicious Snickers Mini with some Orange Juice. I had left what was left of my Orange Juice in there on Friday, and was looking forward to the juice, medium pulp and calcium that my body needs. To my horror, upon opening the door I did not see my orange juice! Thinking that perhaps my orange juice was relocated to the Alternate Refrigerator I also made sure to check the other fridge’s contents. But alas, there was no Orange Juice to be consumed. A quick search of the garbage pile revealed my orange juice to be heartlessly discarded and empty.

But I am not mad. Luckily I was able to have a delicious mountain dew to wash down the tiny bits of snickers still stuck to the inside of my mouth. And I knew that I would get my revenge, for I drink directly from my Orange Juice container. And I have a nasty cold. So now when you see your coworker, the janitor or perhaps a dog that is able to unscrew orange juice containers walking amongst us with a look of shame and snot on their sleeves, know that they are an orange juice moocher. A moocher I say!

But maybe, and I would like to think this to be the case, that someone went to the refrigerator and saw this orange juice and thought to themselves “Hooray! The company has provided me with half a bottle of orange juice! I will drink this and get my daily intake of Vitamin C!” They did not realize that this was not for public consumption because I, erroneously thinking that it would be common knowledge that rogue food items in the fridge are known to be property of an individual not the company, failed to mark the orange juice with a signature or perhaps a note saying “Here be cold-germs.”

Which is why I present to you my modest proposal for acceptable usages of the refrigerator and contents of said refrigerator. I propose that the double door refrigerator (known as the “Double Deuce”) be used for items claimed by one person who would like to consume those items at a later date and time. The classic “freezer on top” model will have items known to be for the better good of the company. We will call it Comrade Refrigerador. Items not explicitly marked as belonging to individuals will be considered “fair game” if found within this refrigerator. E.g. if there is an unmarked pizza box in Comrade Refrigerador one can assume that you are welcome to have a slice for a delicious mid-afternoon snack because someone graciously donated it to the company. But if this same pizza is in the Double Deuce you should assume that someone is saving it for dinner and if you ate it they might starve to death; which is probably an OSHA violation.

Please respond with an approve/reject. I will anonymously gather the votes and contract Diebold out to count them. If this measure is approved by a majority in both the house and the senate I will post signs with clip art indicating the usage of the refrigerator.

Thank you for time and understanding,
Phil ‘OJ’ Scott

Whoo hoo! first post!

Brock on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 10:43 AM

I can't wait to work for a real company so I can send out memos like this. Anytime you get to reference OSHA violations its bound to be a winner.

Marc on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 11:46 AM

Apparently office refrigerator politics is a conversation killer.

Brock on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 11:50 AM

So I'm walking into work and I have to pass by a Women's Medical Clinic. Everyday there are a couple of old fogeys standing in front of the place with pictures of dead fetuses and the like. They harass everyone that goes in there. Well today, as I'm strolling by, there is this dude (bald, with a long goatee) screaming at these guys. I mean he's going apeshit. Its freakin' hilarious.

I was just wondering, have any of you seen Chris lately?

adrian on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 1:28 PM

Jay, I ordered a DS and FF3 the other day. I also read that FF1 and 2 are coming out on the PSP.

Jay on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 1:50 PM

I have the DS with FF3. It's cool. I haven't gotten very far yet, though.

Brock on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 3:22 PM

I thought people would be inspired to go into a pro-choice/pro-life debate... instead... we get Final Fantasy banter, and not even good banter.

jen on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 3:25 PM

personally I find pro-choice/pro-life debates more interesting. I dont know if they do it here, but there used to be this bus that had a giant picture of a dead fetus on the side of it that used to park in front of the court house in Bloomington by where I used to work. They had all these brainwashed little kids like 5 and 6 years old parading around picketing. Crazy stuff.

Jay on Tuesday, March 06, 2007 at 3:35 PM

Brock, I don't think you'll find that much debate on that topic on natty sci. Sorry to dissapoint you. FF4 is way better than FF7! Go!

I saw that, Wes. I'm not sure what to think It must have just happened this week, because in last weeks releases he was alive and in jail. I think they might replace Steve Rogers, with the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, Captain America's WWII sidekick.

jen on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 11:42 AM

So I finally switched my insurance over to a Kentucky policy for my car, and apparently its twice as expensive to have the same policy in Kentucky as Indiana. I'm pretty much pissed off.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 11:45 AM

I think our friend Doug Huelsman's car was insured as a farm vehicle at one point in college. This was right after he got busted for driving without any insurance or he didn't have the paperwork on him or something. The point is, he was really happy when he saw the cost.

Jay on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 11:46 AM

I remember that.

jen on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 12:01 PM

Well I'm going to have a hard time with this whole changing over thing as it is, because I cant actually prove that I live here. I didn't have to sign a lease at my place and all the bills come in my roommate's name. This sucks.

XTR are damn good components. You are getting that bike for free?

Here is the bike that I would buy if i had Philco type money

http://www.santacruzmtb.com/blurlt/

Phil on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 1:45 PM

The one thing that I'm iffy about is the 29". The guy building it swears by them and says he'd never go back. So I'm taking a risk. I figure I'm not particularly locked into any type of bike right now. The "downsides" I keep seeing are 1) cost and 2) getting used to a new pace while riding. Neither one is a concern with me.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 2:23 PM

Jen - I think you really just need something with your name and address on it.

Marc on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 2:30 PM

You went with the XT M760 9-Speed 11-34 Cassette!?
Are you trapped in the 80s?
You should have gotten the XT M760 9-Speed 11-34 MP3
or at least the XT M760 9-Speed 11-34 CD.
At least you didn't get stuck with the XT M760 9-Speed 11-34 LP
or the XT M760 9-Speed 11-34 8-Track

I'm bored, so I made a bad musical technology innovations joke.

jen on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 2:40 PM

maybe it will be easier just to enroll in school and use my parents' address. Okay, I really wouldnt do that, but it would be cheaper. Possibly easier... Maybe not as easy as the farm vehicle route. I'll explore that option next.

So are they actually going to wear those in games this year?

Phil on Wednesday, March 07, 2007 at 4:39 PM

I believe 'cuse is wearing them now. I believe that according to the rules you can't wear the undershirt though. So it is really just guys running around in what looks like a skirt.

stew on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 12:10 AM

Damn Phil...just reading the specs on that bike was enough to give me a raging hard-on (not really, but metaphorically speaking.) You are getting this bike for free? One would not be able to buy such a magnificent ride for under $3000. XTR is top shelf.

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 1:11 AM

I think the irony of taking that bike to work to save wear on my car is pretty thick - the bike is worth more than twice what I spent on my car. Theoretically I should be driving to make sure I don't do anything to the bike...

stew on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 3:50 AM

Honestly, cycling is one of the best forms of exercise in my opinion. Running is boring and high impact. One of the things I look forward to most is coming back from deployment and getting a bike and riding some of these crazy hills out here at Pendleton. We often run this ridgeline that overlooks the Pacific, and there's tons of firebreaks that would be amazing to ride.

Brent on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 6:29 AM

This is from my friend Jen, who has raced and been sponsored for both mtb and road: "Never heard of Speedgoat Bikes. But I would take the bike as is and run! What is the $ value of the services provided by your friend. I'm guessing $4k? "

Bigworm on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 9:51 AM

I think the real question is how much does Speedgoat owe Maximum ASP? How many bikes are they giving you guys?

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 9:53 AM

Tell this "Jen" girl that my services start at $50 for cuddling and go all the way up depending on the how she wants to get to know me romantically. But the equivalent of the services we gave them without paying was I believe over $10k.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 9:56 AM

So did you guys set up a barter system before hand, or only after they realized they couldn't pay their bill?

Bigworm on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 9:57 AM

Barry - give us the scoop, why did the LSU (ranked #10) women's basketball coach resign midseason before March Madness for?

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 10:03 AM

I think they contacted us concerned that they had an account they were using and not paying for and did this as an offer of good will and thanks for the service we provide.

The cost of the bike is probably just directly related to the guy who is building it geeking out on the specs.

Barry on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 1:29 PM

Wes I don't know why Pokey resigned. There's an article in the school paper about it today and it's a lot of "I'm not going to comment on that at this time." She wants to wait until the whole season's over to say why. Apparently it shocked the athletic department. There is a qoute from Pokey's mom "She needed a change. That's what she said she wanted." I honestly can't think of a reason. She's never won the NC even though she had teams that many thought should have. She coached the only two time national player of the year (Seimone Augustus), and the last two WNBA rookies of the year were her players too (Tameka Johnson and Augustus). They beat Tennessee in the SEC tournament last week, so she got that monkey off her back, though we still didn't win the tournament. She's a former LSU player herself. My point is she's had a lot of success and has strong ties to the University. While there may have been some (and I emphasize some) critics about her winning the big games, the student body and fans overwhelmingly support and adore her. Plus she's got a sweet endorsement deal with the local Harley Davidson dealership. All in all I haven't heard much and nobody knows. I'll ask my students tonight what they've heard.

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 2:20 PM

Between Alabama's awful FT shooting and their terrible, terrible passing I see no way UK could lose this game.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 2:22 PM

Philco - you haven't watched many UK games this year have you? We shot nearly 60% from the field, 40+% from the 3 point line against Vandy the second time around and still lost. How? 23 turnovers.

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 2:24 PM

Yeah, Vandy is actually a good team. This is a crappy Alabama team with injury problems. It looks like they got some good big men, but with captain retard and his buddy the wonder monkey bringing the ball up the court and throwing passes off players backs they aren't getting the ball that much.

I still say my prediction of UK winning the SEC and making the Final Four will come true. I can feel it.

Phil on Thursday, March 08, 2007 at 2:55 PM

Actually, I think UK will win it all this year and Tubby will leave for the NBA.

That's my prediction.

Philco - that is my prediction as well. I have said that Tubby will right the ship, win the national championship and then retire or bolt to the NBA. The same fans that are booing him now will be crying when he leaves....and I'll love it.

Release from UK today. ...


LEXINGTON -- Kentucky football coach Rich Brooks made a series of announcements
Thursday regarding the status of several Wildcat football players.

* Reserve cornerback Jarrell Williams has been dismissed from the team for
violation of team rules. Williams has seen limited action the last two seasons.

* Reserve linebacker Ben McGrath has decided to give up football. McGrath, a
two-year letterman, left the team in early December for personal reasons and did
not play in the Music City Bowl. McGrath had planned to return in spring
practice but now has decided against playing. He plans to remain in school and
complete his education.

* Three players, starting offensive tackle Garry Williams, starting offensive
guard Christian Johnson, and reserve linebacker Micah Johnson, have been
suspended indefinitely for academic reasons. Each of the players may return to
the team as soon as his responsibilities have been fulfilled to Coach Brooks'
satisfaction.

* Reserve offensive lineman Micah Jones must give up football because of injury
problems. Jones came to UK in 2004 and saw significant playing time as a true
freshman. He has dealt with injuries the last two seasons, primarily a back
injury which has forced his retirement from the sport.

"I am extremely disappointed for Micah, but I think this is a long-term decision
that is best for his health," Brooks said. "We will keep him on scholarship so
that he can stay in school and get his degree. I hope that things will get back
to normal for him and that he will make a full recovery."

He will try and make a trip to South Bend in the spring.

Brock on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:03 PM

34-31 UK at the half. No upsets in the games so far.

Barry on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:16 PM

Three things of note today for me.
1. Geaux Tigers! That was an awesome game last night (or atleast the second half was). Big Baby was his old self in the second half and OT.
2. I guess that's why Pokey quit so quickly Wes. Not so much did I guess "inappropriate sexual relationship with a former player" as her reason for quitting.
3. I met a girl at a bar last weekend and called her on Sunday about going out for sushi, though I did not know when as I have plans to go to the coast this weekend (she said yes however). I got my plans together and called her back Tuesday and got this message "The Nextel number you are trying to call is not in service at this time." As of yesterday, same message. I know it's not intentional, although if it were (you know the whole "instead of telling me she didn't want to go out, she changed her fucking number" thing) I think that qualifies as the worst rejection ever. Even worse than Joe turning down Lisa for sleep (what up!). How the hell do I play this one?

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:51 PM

Brock - this is what UK does. We play about 32 minutes in each game, God knows if we played an entire game (40 minutes) we'd be pretty good actually. However, these kids cannot keep up their intensity for 40 minutes...and of course..turnovers..turnovers..turnovers!!!!!

If we just valued the damn ball each possession we'd have 5 more wins atleast.

Brock on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:52 PM

How about that UofL game last night? They pulled a UK and blew a big lead. Thankfully Sosa pulled a Tyrus Edny with 4 seconds left.

Brock on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:58 PM

Comeback 61-63 Miss St. with 5:48 left

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 2:58 PM

Did Sosa walk? I saw him run into the WV guy and it looked like he did, but I didn't take the time to rewind it?

That is what UK does Brock, we play better from behind because then the kids care. Unfortunately, we are not good enough to spot Florida 16 and come from behind to win, although for some reason we try to do it.

You can take 2 steps, but the 3rd is a travel, so long as the 3rd step never hits the ground, you are fine, so I guess a 2.5 step is legal.

I swear to God, UK finds new ways to beat itself. I mean, Sheray is a 4 years senior from Canada (meaning he is smart) and after 4 years of playing ball at a major D1 college, we have lane violations that cost us the game?

Dave on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 3:57 PM

Meeks, hit his first one, and on his second attempt, Sheray Thomas starting walking toward the UK bench, and they got a line violation. This was before overtime, and MSU came down and tied it with a three.

douglas on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 3:59 PM

greetings fuckers! yeah, uk blows hard, after UK gets beat in the first round of the NCAA I hope to god tubby gets fired and we can go after donovan (clause in his contract saying he can go to UK), travis ford, or pelphrey. i know ford and pelphrey don't have that much experience, but goddamn it they know UK b-ball and would work their ass off for their dream job

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 3:59 PM

Dave can you confirm. Someone signaled a TO from the bench, one ref acknowledged the other did not and passed the ball back to Meeks. According to some wacked ass UK fan who TiVoed the game, he says that Sheray moved into the lane prior to the ref giving Meeks the ball, so it shouldn't have been a lane violation.

Can you confirm?

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:00 PM

Actually, Mike D'Antoni is the name I am hearing. However, Tubby won't be getting fired.......actually he might get fired now simply because he obviously isn't getting fundamentals acrossed to the kids.

They have a higher salary cap at UK than Florida for players, thats for sure.

douglas on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:06 PM

it's one thing if this is one bad year, but i'm not realizing that tubby is underachieving with superior talent, his kids don't work hard, they don't care about UK basketball and what it means, and we've been spiraling into mediocrity for several years now. there's no excuse to lose to Miss. St. in the SEC tournament, a very inferior team. supposedly morris is headed for the pros after this year, and stevenson is transferring, UK will have no big guys next year (except for jared carter, whoop dee fucking doo). it's bad when i'm listening to the game on the radio and i'm EXPECTING UK to fuck it up, not hoping they'll pull it out. i honestly would've been surprised if they won today. that's six losses in a row now in OT and/or in games decided by 5 points or less, which does not signal high hopes for anyone heading into the tournament, except of course for anyone UK plays.

Brock on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:06 PM

Marc, no offense... but don't use "Eat me"... that implies you have a pussy...

douglas on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:08 PM

what's the web site for the UK message boards? and by the way, did anyone else see pitino stumping for tubby to keep his job the other day? did anything else see right thru that bullshit? he said UK would be set back 10-15 yrs. if they lose tubby, which is complete and total bullshit. Pitino is just relishing the fact that UL is doing better than UK finally for the first time in his tenure at UL and he doesn't want to give it up. unfortunately for us, tubby's saving grace is that the buyout on his contract would be like 4 million, which UK does NOT want to do

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:16 PM

Douglas - I really don't think OTS is going anywhere.

Donovan would be a damn fool to leave UF for UK or NBA. UF is a football school and as such, he is a god there. The only reason why Billy D would leave is so that he can take the reigns at UK (which is something he would like) though something he probably shouldn't do. Pitino recommended Billy D for the UK job, but Newton hired OTS instead. Granted without OTS, I don't think UK wins the national championship in 1998, but that is just me.

Here is what I think. Perry Stevenson isn't transferring at the end of the year, he will be back. Randolph to the NBA is about 40%. I really don't think that OTS would have "found the fax" unless he talked to the Morris family about Randy going to the NBA, after his college eligibility is up. Keep in mind that Randy said he was going to stay in college, so that is something to keep in mind. Of course, he can say the big fuck you to UK and sign a contract, but hey whatever. OTS may give him the thumbs up to go to the NBA, if so, that is why he will leave.

i know donovan won't leave UF, but we'd go after him, and i know he'd consider it. yes, he's treated like a god in FL, but at UK he would be a god. i don't think UK would go after ford or pelphrey, they'd probably be on the list and might get an interview, but ultimately they'll go with someone w/ more experience, but one of those guys will eventually coach at UK at some point, guaranteed. and i think the only reason morris would stay is b/c no one in the nba would want him that much b/c he only shows up for half the games, of course his games so far in the postseason might turn some heads, two double doubles in a row...

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:25 PM

Brock - unfortunately no, we don't have a higher salary cap for players. We may have in the past, but I do know (can't say for a fact because I wasn't there) that there was a "rumor" going around that when OTS had an inhome visit with a highly heralded recruit, he said he wanted $30K. OTS packed up his stuff, told the recruit, this is UK, we don't do that and left.

I also know that we use to, however, not anymore.

Bigworm on Friday, March 09, 2007 at 4:27 PM

LittleBigPlanet looks pretty damn cool. Nice touch with The Go! Team for a soundtrack

Not "spend $600 on a PS3" cool, but still a pretty damn good idea for a game.

hmmm, on second thought based on this video I think I might easily be able to get $600 worth of fun out of this thing:

A media moderator just posted on KSR that they have pretty credible source saying Jai Lucas is not coming to UK. If that is the case, that means no Patrick Patterson then either as they were going to be a package deal. With that being said, it is becoming apparent to me that Coach Smith is more likely than not, not going to be at UK next year. I am guessing he will step down.

Maybe I am reading into this too much, but it does make sense.

So I was discussing with Michelle some interesting facts.

Cumberland College is now called The University of the Cumberlands. Ok, neat.

Cumberland College mascot used to be Indians.... I'M OFFENDED! CHANGE THAT OFFENSIVE NAME. Well... how about Cumberland Native Americans... nah... not very intimidating... because, you know, Indians and Native Americans are just not the same....

ANYWAY...

The new mascot for The University of the Cumberlands is....

Patriots.

So instead of Indians... they are called Patriots... like the opposite. Why not call yourself Slaughterers of Indians... oops... Slaughterers of Native Americans.... or Redskin Killers.... I like that one. Dirty Drunken Redskin Killers.

So is Marc feeling okay today?

Marc on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at 2:09 PM

Marc is feeling fine, after being Rock Star drunk last night. Although Gatorade does sound delicious right now, I think I'll have to pick some up. Something about seeing a bunch of people from high school and finding out that I was a lot more popular and likable than I remember. Apparently all the other fat people chose not to show up, as the eye candy was pretty nice. It was like being able to reminisce about the girls I used to masterbate to before I had access to internet pornography. If any of those girls ever find this website and wonder if I masterbated about them, I probably did. I'm delightful.

Phil on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at 2:50 PM

I ended up buying Ron Jeremy's autobiography after the authors of Freakanomics recommended it. I just read a chapter where Ron blames his weight gain on going to swingers club that had a free buffet.

Marc, did you have a high school reunion last night or something?

So, I am seriously thinking about buying a Wii today after work. Wes, is there any cost to using the online feature? I know that games are 5-10 dollars, but what about just surfing the channels? Anything else I should know?

adrian on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 11:12 AM

good luck finding one

Bigworm on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Jay - I haven't played in my Wii in about a month and haven't ever used hte online feature. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

When AD says there is no way your job is in jeopardy its pretty much a death sentence that you're gone.

We did work for Baxter Pharmeceuticals and Cook Pharmica when I worked at Finelight. I know a couple of the marketing guys there.

Bigworm on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 3:22 PM

Brock - nothing that you would be interested in. However, there are a ton of biotech companies in Cinci.

www.amylin.com has a manufactiring facility in Cinci

jen on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 3:24 PM

I know a guy whose dad works for Lilly in Cincy, too. He's a sketchy fella though, so not sure if you'd want any help there...

Brock on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 3:45 PM

Lily is in Indianapolis. P&G is in Cincy... but they sold off 80% of their research branch last year.

The problem I have found is that small biotech companies need experienced personnel now, which I am not... so I have to look at big places that don't mind investing in younger talent.

Ultimately, I'll probably end up at an academic institution for a few years to get "experience." Anything is better than the minimum wage I'm paid now.

Bigworm on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:14 PM

Brock - a lot of these biotech companies have post doc stuff. Also you can look on monster.com for post doc opportunities.

jen on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:18 PM

I meant Indy. Sorry, Mondays fry my brain.

jen on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:29 PM

are you trying to stay in Cincy, or do you care where it is Brock?

Brock on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:35 PM

Nope, preferably east of the Mississippi.

jen on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:43 PM

I emailed one of the VPs at Finelight to see if they're doing anything local-ish in biotech or pharm. They mainly do healthcare marketing, so if I get any contact names, I'll email you.

Jay on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:47 PM

Apparently, Adrian was right. I just went to EB games and asked if they had any Wii's, the guy looked at me like I was crazy. He said they haven't had any in stock for three weeks. Oh well, there's always next week.

jen on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:55 PM

Okay, that was fast...
Brock, she said they dont have any clients anywhere around right now but that you should contact GLI and they will give you tips (for free).

I tried.

Phil on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 4:58 PM

Big Jay, your best bet right now is on eBay. There are sites that track when online sites get them in stock but even companies like Amazon which I assume get thousands of them still sell out in 15 minutes. People are still lining up in front of Targets for them. Most of these people are selling their Wiis on ebay or off Amazon's new and used.

But after seeing the LittleBigPlanet demo I might just start "saving" for a PS3...

Brock on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 5:28 PM

What is GLI?

Brock on Monday, March 12, 2007 at 5:29 PM

Honestly, the XBox360 has looked pretty cool to me, and hopefully the price will drop a little soon.

that would be so unlike me.

Marc on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 9:07 AM

Really, because it sounds pretty much right on. I mean you took 64 photos of yourself and you and me while I was driving in the span of time it took us to go from Wal-mart (where you just bought the camera) to Adrian's house for Stagger of Love.

Marc on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 12:18 PM

Jay, fuck no. But it is good to see that the quirky girl from Saved By the Bell : The College Years didn't end up haggish like I thought she did. Oh and how drunk was I when I was swearing that too. Because the drunker someone is, the harder it is to convince them of the truth. Just look at the President.

Barry on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 12:51 PM

would have posted this yesterday, but I was busy. I went to the coast over the weekend to do some fieldwork. Two points:
1) caught the biggest fish of my life (25-30lb redfish). He fought me for 15 minutes before I brought him in.
2)were collecting oysters and mussles on the side of the road (illegal without a permit by the way) and Wildlife and Fisheries stopped by (guns holstered but hands on-i did have a hatchet in my hand i suppose) and my friend david was there on the side of the road in a t-shirt and boxers-that's it. david only brought the clothes on his back which by that point were covered in mud, slime, and fish scales so he thought he'd ride back in his boxers. I wish i could have read the LDWF guys minds when they saw him.

Barry on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 12:52 PM

The guy building it said that it was on their build floor being put together. So after they do that they perform some performance and stress tests I think and then they'll ship it out. I assume it'll arrive late this week or early next week.

adrian on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:38 PM

What is the Buzz about Texas A&M. I saw that several analyst picked them to win it all. Also, both my parents picked them to go to the final game. I just want to know what the analyst know about them and my parents that would cause them to pick them to the final game.

I have them getting beat second round.

Phil on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:39 PM

I'm going off memory, so forgive me if I'm wrong, but in 5 of their 6 losses they lost by 3 or less. They are pretty solid.

Brock on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:40 PM

Yeah... I have Louisville or Stanford beating in them in most of my picks. From past experience, Big 12 schools don't fare well in the tournament unless they are Texas and sometimes Kansas.

Texas A&M got beat early in the conference tournament, which may make them hungrier for this tournament with a few extra days of rest, but besides Acie Law IV, they aren't deep.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:45 PM

Louisville had better watch out for Stanford with the Lopez twins. Those kids are pretty good seven footers and Sandford has interior shot blocking presence that UofL struggles against, because they don't have "shooters".

Barry on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:54 PM

I wouldn't put them in the finals, but I definitely have them beating the cards maybe elite eight. LSU beat them here but only because Temple was able to take Acie Law out of the game. What I remember most from being at the game was A&M had so many players on their bench, we didn't have enough seats for them. Make no mistake, Acie Law IV is a baller probably the best PG in the country and if the game's on the line and he's got the ball the game's as good as over.

Barry on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 4:55 PM

Pretty good article about Tubby

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaab/news?...o&type=lgns

douglas on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 8:05 PM

i saw the riches, it was pretty good.

douglas on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 8:17 PM

i think that article on tubby pretty much seems up exactly what i think about him, great guy for the program, wrong guy to lead it. i was watching best damn sports show last nite too and saw john calipari on there, and i kept thinking that he would be awesome at UK. he plays a similar style to what pitino used to play, he loves being the center of attention and would love being the guy to bring UK back to the promised land, and you have to think there'd be no way he'd stay at memphis in the c-usa over coming to UK, a perennial national powerhouse. he's already failed in the nba, so you don't have to worry about him looking for a 'better' job, there's really not a better coaching job in the ncaa. he's always all over the media, trying to get memphis whatever attention he can, having even more attention on him all the time at UK would stroke his ego so much there's no way he could resist. what he's done at memphis has been amazing, with both his recruiting skills and coaching style, he'd do wonders at UK. i think he's officially my pick to be the next UK coach. i'm surprised i haven't heard his name more.

Bigworm on Tuesday, March 13, 2007 at 10:30 PM

Douglas - Surely you are kidding with John Calipari, however, atleast we know he wouldn't bolt for the NBA because he will have the best team that money can buy at UK. Yes, I am saying that he is $hady.

Brock on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:11 AM

I agree with Douglas... Calipari would be a good choice for UK. You need a flamboyant character there. Tubby is just too laid back for the necks. Travis Ford would be a good option, but he's still a little green for that. There is no way Donovan leaves Florida... he's got it made there.

Maybe Nick Saban??

Brock on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:16 AM

By the way... the Alabama-UMass NIT game was sweet. They were discussing something during the game. Instead of having a play-in game in Dayton for the 16 seeds... how about a 8 team showdown on Tuesday with the bubble teams for the 12-13 seed. Who wouldn't watch this lineup?

Drexel vs. West Virginia
Air Force vs. Syracuse
Kansas St. vs. Missouri St.
Clemson vs. Ole Miss

I think that's a really good idea... the last 8 teams on the bubble fight for the last 4 spots. No one gives a shit about Florida A&M versus Niagara, but this lineup would be awesome.

Jerome on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 8:24 AM

I watched some basketball last night.

One of the teams had some black dudes who had the word "Niagara" on their jerseys. I giggled.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 10:40 AM

Brock - I completely agree. This way the NCAA would make more money because the N.I.T. would actually mean something. In fact, I like the idea of the last 4 making it to the NCAA tourney, instead of the NIT champion like I was thinking it should be done.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 10:40 AM

I agree that UK could use a much more flamboyant coach, but not at the expense of landing us on probation.

adrian on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 11:01 AM

Patt Riley Leaving the Heat for UK, that is what I am talking about

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Apparently Travis Ford got burned like UK did against MSU.

Brock on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Adrian is a fucking genius.... and a retard. But the Riley idea is genius. I keep forgetting he played for UK.

Maybe they can dig up Rupp and clone him. I'm sure they have an entire department in the medical school at UK devoted to this.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 11:09 AM

Believe me, I'd love to have Pat Riley at UK! Why would he leave Miami for?

Adrian - and PR does have his degree, so he would be eligible to coach in college.

Church on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:04 PM

Final Four picks?
Sleepers?

adrian on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:08 PM

Final Four - UK, Louisville, Eastern Kentucky, Gators

Brock on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:16 PM

For some reason I keep coming back to UCLA. I really haven't watched them play other than last year's final four. But I get this feeling since they went to the finals last year and were pretty successful this year, that they'll make a final four run again or better.

Texas worries me because they are young, but so was Carmelo Anthony.

Everyone is blowing Winthrop, but I think Notre Dame might make a run because the last couple of years they've played an insane number of close games, which makes them battle tested. I think they make a Sweet 16 run at least.

If Tennessee shocks Ohio State I wouldn't be surprised, even though I don't have the balls to make that pick anywhere. Ohio State is just so talented and that bracket is weak with Memphis and Texas A&M.

Everyone keeps picking Arkansas to beat USC, I don't think it'll happen. They're dead from their SEC run... look at Syracuse last year... made that run in the Big East tourney, lose in the 1st round. Some story for Arkansas. But I say that, and NC State walloped Drexel last night after making that run in the ACC.

Kentucky could be Kansas, but I don't know if they can beat Villanova - weird huh?

Wisconsin - I like their style. I think they'll beat Florida if Florida makes it that far (and they probably won't). ESPN analysts are all over GA Tech (Dicky V for example), but UNLV is good, and I don't think GA Tech does shit this year (No Luke Schenscher - http://www.nba.com/playerfile/luke_...cher/index.html).

The winner of the Butler - Old Dominion game makes it to the Sweet 16.

3 words - Virginia Commonwealth University

Church on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 12:43 PM

I can be counted as one of those sold on Florida. I really doubt anyone in their region can challenge them. Maryland will probably lose early, but Oregon is too inconsistent and Wisconsin isn't capable of playing from behind. Notre Dame is the one team in the region that may be able to match up with them.

UCLA is a good defensive team with championship game experience. Plus with Pitt probably losing first round, good riddance to cro magnon Aaron Gray and Kansas being the most historically underperforming team in recent years, it seems very plausible for UCLA to coast through.

The East is tricky. UNC was playing well, but they tend to sleep for stretches of time and could go down to the Marquette-Michigan State winner. Texas has Durant and could easily come out of the upper half of the bracket. The lower half of the bracket is whoever wins Georgetown-Texas Tech. The final is a toss up. Georgetown cannot run with Texas, but Texas can't play ball control with Georgetown. Georgetown has been playing well and could continue.

Ohio State is the class of the south, but could get caught napping by either Xavier or BYU. The 4 and 5 seed are weak and Tennessee has yet to prove they could play when Lofton is off. The lower half is pretty loaded with Memphis, Nevada, Louisville, Stanford, A & M, and Creighton. I still don't get the hype about Texas A & M and the pre tourney hype can be a curse. I like Ohio State in this bracket, but maybe A & M will prove me wrong. Memphis will go down first or second round since they haven't had a game since Christmas

Possible Upsets
Davidson over Maryland
Old Dominion over Butler
Wright State over Pitt ( Fuck you Aaron Gray)
Nova/UK over Kansas
Gonzaga over UCLA
Xavier over OSU
Texas Tech over G'Town

adrian on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 1:20 PM

In my actual bracket at my dads work i have

Final Four
Gators, Kansas, G-Town and OSU

Final Game
Gators, OSU (Just like in football)

Winner
Gators

Im my opinion there is not a better "team" then Florida. I fucking hate their guts and I could care less if they got beat first round. But i do think they are the team to beat.

I think Kansas's flops over the years will end now and they will make it pretety far. If they don't, who gives a poop!

Don't get me wrong, I am pulling for UK through the entire tournament, which will probably be one game for them and thats it. But nothing would bring a bigger smile to my face then if Duke loses first round to VCU. I acutally have VCU beating them in my bracket and i hope Duke burns in hell.

ROAR!

adrian on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 1:33 PM

If anyone is thinking about getting a new computer you might want to hold off til Q3 of 2007. Intel is doing a massive price cut to their processors. Example, Quad Core intel today costs 900.00. Q3 of 2007 the same processor will be priced at 266.00. That is a big price drop for a damn good processor.

Nothing can really utilize quad cores right now but when software finally catches up, it will be all the power you need.

Brock on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 2:28 PM

The have QUAD core processors now?!! When did that happen? I'm still rock hard about DUAL core processors.

To prepare for Wrestlemania 23 "all grown up" I thought I would get a wrestling book out of the library. Funny thing, all the books on WWE and the WWF are at the Portland, Fairdale, Fern Creek, Okalona and Southwest libraries. That is bullshit. Just because I live in the east end doesn't mean I can't like wrestling.

Phil on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 9:50 PM

I'm watching stranger than fiction, and I must say it's one of one the more enjoyable movies that I've seen in a while. Maybe I just have a thing for infographics.

Anyways, I think you could plug b-mac into this movie as the main character and it wouldn't miss a beat.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 10:49 PM

I have heard stranger than fiction is really good from several people.

Bigworm on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at 10:53 PM

I found this on KSR and even as a UK fan, I find this to be pretty damn funny because it's true.

ST LOUIS, MO - (Begin Bud Light theme music)

Announcer: Bud Light Presents, "Real Men of Genius"

Backup singer: Reaaaaal Men Of Genius

Announcer: Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional, Irrational UK Fan.

Backup singer: Mr. Delusional, Irrational UK Faaaaaan!

Announcer: Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high preseason ranking.

Backup singer: Why aren't we number one?

Announcer: You scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Cats lose to a grossly inferior opponent.

Backup singer: Neeeeeed to hire Billy Donovannnnn!

Announcer: Inevitably, you'll bring up the past, and boast of championships won 20 years before you were born.

Backup singer: Those were the daaaaaays!

Announcer: You will point out that you have more wins than any other program, as though that is relevant to the current season.

Backup singer: Been playing since the 1880ssssss!

Announcer: Go on, ignore that loss to your archrival in the regular season finale for the 6th consecutive time in a row, and continue to believe that you'll defeat your first round opponent with striking ease.

Backup singer: We'll still whoop that ### and win by thirteeeeeeey!

Announcer: So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses, and take comfort knowing that when you don't finish in the top 25, you'll be back to number three when the preseason polls come out next year.

Backup singer: Mr. Delusional, Irrational UK Fannnnnnn!

I saw 300 this weekend. The only thing he left out was the cameo appearances by Smeagol and Sloth. Okay, so it wasn't the REAL Smeagol or Sloth, but celebrity look-a-likes for sure. Lots of unintentional humor in that movie.

Jay on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:26 AM

Umm...that's not really a movie for chicks. Other than the scantily clad dudes. They have plenty of boobies to make up for that though.

Deadspins take on UK vs. Nova

http://deadspin.com/sports/college-...nova-243391.php

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 10:20 AM

Oh and it is worth mentioning that the river story in Woo's life is true.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 10:24 AM

Damn, had I been watching UK games with these rules I would have died.

As you may have heard, seen, or even suffered through, this is shaping
up to
be a pretty piss-poor season of UK Basketball. So, to help ease the
pain of
watching the games, some UK fans from across the nation have devised
the
2006-2007 UK Basketball Drinking Game. Hopefully this will make the
games
slightly more entertaining and definitely more enjoyable! If you are a
UK
fan, PLEASE repost this as a bulletin, including this introduction.

The Rules:

Drink every time they show Ashley (drink two more if they show her
shaking
her head in disgust or some other indication that she agrees the Cats
suck).

Drink once every time they show Donna.

Drink 2 every time they show Tubby give his stare.

Chug your drink when Tubby’s coat comes off.

Cheers when the announcers talk about how Tubby didn’t recruit Corey Brewer citing that he wasn’t “physical enough”.

Drink every time an announcer comments on how we “just don’t have
Kentucky
talent” or the last time this happened to the Cats was….” .

Drink twice when an announcer mentions that UK fans aren’t used to
losing.

Drink every time the announcers mispronounce Woo-kosh Orb-zhoot.

Drink more when Sheray stays in his block during a free throw.

Drink when we actually use the full court press.

Chug everytime a KY bred boy Lights it up like
Clark
Griswold’s House b/c we didn’t recruit him and let him go to another
SEC
school.

Drink every time Orzbut completes a fantastically European foul like
closelining someone across the face with both hands. Drink twice every
time
he gets away with it.

Drink every time the Cats have a 1 and 1 opportunity to cut into an
opponents lead, miss the front end and the other team goes down and
scores
killing the Cats “momentum.”

Drink two every time the team is obviously fighting with one another.

Drink three every time we throw an idiotic lob pass up the floor that
results in a turnover (either stolen or out of bounds).

If Morris gets two early fouls (within the first 5 minutes), power hour
until the end of the first half. This is not by the game clock, you
wussies.

Funnel a beer every time the Cats are up 3 points at the end of the game and Tubby allows the other team to shoot a 3 instead of fouling because its against the spirit of competition.

Drink three and say hallelujah if we score while in our half court
offensive set.

Drink four and say amen when Tubby actually designs a play that gets the ball inbounds coming out of a time out. Drink another if we actually score.

Waterfall any time some white boy you’ve never heard of ends up on the
court
because we’re getting our asses handed to us.

Shotgun a beer when Ramel Bradley is on the bench with the game on the line.

Social chug your drink if we shoot over 30% in either half.

Order and drink a shot to the ghost of Chuck Hayes (or insert favorite
UK
player that actually cared that he was a Cat) during halftime.

At the end of the game, if the leading scorer was a walk-on or a
freshman, chug your drink, order another, and chug it.

Shit your pants if we actually get a shot off when the game is on the line.

Goes-without-saying Rules:
- Forget the beer and stick to bourbon if Billy Packer or Dick Vitale
are announcing the game
- Scream “Duke sucks!” and flip off the TV whenever the Duke team is
mention
for no real reason or they show the Laettner Shot.

KY BASKETBALL WILL NEVER DIE!!!! GO CATS!!!

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 11:45 AM

Sold my tickets. Bill backed out because he was sick, Abby is sick and probably wouldn't make Saturday. I figured that you wouldn't be able to take off because you just started your job, so I sold them to an OSU fan.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 11:46 AM

I am sure when UofL builds their arena downtown we will get regional games here to go to, in 20 years.

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I think Wes might be a Kentucky fan.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:01 PM

Yes I am a UK fan, however, I am just a college basketball fan in general as I watch many games during the year when UK is not one of the teams playing. This is my favorite time of the year

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:02 PM

I sold them to the OSU fan because he is the partner that Abby works for. He is such a fan for OSU he bought the tickets knowing he is in Dallas and won't be able to make their game today.

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:27 PM

Who is watching the games online? I can just feel productivity across the country grind to a halt.

adrian on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:30 PM

I can't watch the game online
ROAR!

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:31 PM

Davidson is outplaying Maryland right now... its an ugly game.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:15 PM

Good, hopefully Davidson wins.

Here is my work bracket:
My 32 teams remaining from Round 1:
MidWest
Florida vs. Zona, Butler vs. Davidson, Winthrop vs. Ore, Gtech vs. Wisc

West
KU vs. UK, vtech vs. S. Illinois, VCU vs. Pitt, Zags vs. UCLA

East
UNC vs. MSU, Ark vs. Kevin Durant, Vandy vs. Wash St., TT vs. Gtown

South
OSU vs. Xaiver, UT vs. Albany, Louisville vs. Texas A&M, Nevada vs. Memphis

Sweet 16 shapes up to be
MidWest
Florida vs. Butler, Winthrop vs. Wisc

West
KU vs. S. Illinois, Pitt vs. UCLA

East
UNC vs. Ark, Vandy vs. Gtown

South
OSU vs. UT, Texas A&M vs. Memphis

Elite 8
MidWest
Florida vs. Wisc

West
KU vs. UCLA

East
UNC vs. Gtown

South
UT vs. Texas A&M

Final 4
Florida, UCLA, Gtown, Texas a&M

Championship Game
Florida and Texas A&M

Champions
Florida

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:19 PM

I'm telling you all... Florida is going to choke. They MIGHT make it to the Final Four, but no further. They're too full of themselves and Noah is actually WORSE this year than last year.

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:20 PM

UofL is putting the fucking HURT on Stanford.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:24 PM

I am telling you, Florida is the best team in the tournament. If they lose, it is because the baskeball gods intervened. Florida already had their letdown, it just happened 3 games to go till when they played UK on their senior night. They are rolling right along. Of course if they do lose in elite 8, it is because they are playing in St. Louis. MO which is pretty shitty considering Gtown could be in East Rutherford, UCLA in San Jose and Texas A&M in San Antonio.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:35 PM

Texas Tech and BC are in a tight game, 52-51 in the 2nd half.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:37 PM

Davidson opens up the 2nd half on a 9-0 run, lead Maryland 52-44 with 17:21 to play.

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:49 PM

Bobby Knight is pissing me off.... in no bracket did I have Boston College win that game... they played horrible the second half of the season. Throw a chair or something you fool.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:51 PM

Brock - I completely agree. I have a feeling that Bobby Knight failed me for the last time!

Stephen Curry (Dell Curry's kid) at Davidson shoots lights out.

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:53 PM

He's spotting up like 4-5 feet behind the line and still making them... its crazy because Maryland is forced to guard him at half-court opening up the lane for layups.

Does Jeff Brassow still have eligibility left?

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 1:56 PM

He's like Hewlett from the old March Madness game on the NES, as soon as you cross 1/2 court you can shoot because Hewlett makes them.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 2:01 PM

Holy shit, Stanford just finally made it to 31 with 12:48 left in the game. I thought UK had trouble putting the ball through the hoop.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 2:10 PM

Bobby Knight you fucking suck!

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 2:23 PM

Looks like I am going to be 0-2 so far.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 2:59 PM

I just got back from the Monkey Wrench. Some dude kept yelling "HELLO Ladies" every time Louisville made a big play. I decided he had turrets.

Nah, I just wanted to go with some upsets this year.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 4:39 PM

Huh, Penn has survived to the 12:00 minute mark of the second half.

Of course acie law doesn't bother playing until 4 minutes are left in the game.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 4:41 PM

Now that I've said that, A&M has gone with the "throw the ball at the rim and just go and dunk the damn ball off the rebound" offense that Penn has no answer for.

Jay on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 5:23 PM

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 8:05 PM

the buffalo crowd is 95% behind VCU right now. Let's see if they can survive until the 12:00 mark of the second half...

Brock on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:28 PM

RAMS! RAMS! RAMS! RAMS!

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:32 PM

Man, VCU are a bunch of punk bitches but at least they aren't Duke.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:36 PM

Maynard is one bad mofo. The sound you here isn't the fans in Buffalo going crazy, it's the entire nation routing against Duke.

26% of the nation picked this according to ESPN, but I think 99.99% are praying for it.

Brent on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:37 PM

YES!

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:38 PM

I think right now I'm at a solid 40% on my picks so far.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:48 PM

They just ran a graphic saying "This game is broadcast in HD thanks to Harris!" immediately followed up by a graphic from WLKY saying "CBS is not providing this game in HD" Fuck everyone involved up the ass. If I have to watch the damn Hoosiers at least put it in HD.

Right now ABC is the only broadcast station that I trust, unfortunately WHAS is known to screw that up.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:49 PM

The games are only on CBS right?

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:53 PM

On digital cable, channel 515 and 516 also have games. Right now 515 only has the audio to the indiana game (?) and 516 is showing the BYU game. But it isn't in HD.

They aren't saying Boooo, they are saying "HEY CBS, FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU"

adrian on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:55 PM

I have VCU playing UCLA in my bracket. I had them beating Duke, then Pitt, then getting beat by those California bitches.

Phil on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 9:55 PM

Fuck it, if CBS isn't going to show the games in HD I'm going to watch the Catholics vs the Mormons on fuzzy 516.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 11:35 AM

Speaking of advertising, has anyone seen the semonin realtors billboards around town? I must say that they are fantastic. Basically they just have a handwritten note with an arrow pointing to something outside of billboard. For example the intersection of Lexington Rd, Chestnut and Cooper St near Baxter Ave has a big sign that just says "This is a really weird intersection" with a note saying "We know Louisville". There is another one with an arrow pointing to a house by the monkey wrench that says "an example of a traditional humpback shotgun house."

They are so well done I almost fail to believe that anyone local could have come up with them.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 2:40 PM

Ok, see ya later Georgia Tech. ACC sucks.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:03 PM

Long Beach State is not holding up their end of our bargain. With their big win over Cal Poly I figured they'd be able to at least hang with UT. Damn it!

Bigworm on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:11 PM

LB St. plays a similar style to UT but doesn't have hte patience to beat them.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:14 PM

Screw patience! I can't watch the game from work but normally LBSU just runs and guns.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:33 PM

Damn it, they've put up almost 50 points but still can't pull close.

At least the Islanders are taking it to Wisconsin.

Bigworm on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:42 PM

Yeah and Winthrop is man handling Notre Dame. Bradshaw for Winthrop looks like ex-UK player Sam Bowie.

Bigworm on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 3:42 PM

You can run and gun and still be patient. I guess the point I was trying to make was taking good shots vs. just jacking up the shots.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 4:01 PM

I have to say that the Islander mascot is by far the coolest in the tournament.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 5:10 PM

Looks like the Islanders are doomed

It seems there is a technical reason, but that still doesn't mean it isn't broken.

Dave on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 7:11 PM

Okay, I'm looking for a picture from the Duke/Maryland game. At Maryland, someone in the crowd held up a sign that read: "Beating Duke. So easy, even a caveman can do it." with a picture of that caveman on it. If anyone could find it that would be great.

Ha ha, fuck you CBS! Even though you want to force me to watch Purdue shoot free throws I know that channel 516 has the Texas game.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 9:31 PM

Well, it looks like Texas will put this away. Oh well

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 9:44 PM

Well, if this continues I guess I can assume UK fans across the state will burn CBS down for me.

Bigworm on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 10:38 PM

Dwight Perry is a walk-on. He is so bad, he doesn't even have his name on the back of his shirt.

Bigworm on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 10:39 PM

C'mon Jackson State! Bust my bracket and I am okay with it.

Thanks Wes, that's awesome. Maryland fans are always coming up with crazy shit.

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 10:52 PM

I noticed the jersey thing. I thought maybe they even screwed up writing his number down too so they had to get him a different jersey with a different number or something. You'd think that they'd be able to find him a jersey. Was he a package deal with his cousin or something?

Phil on Friday, March 16, 2007 at 11:57 PM

I wasn't planning on watch UK vs KU, but how an you pass on two former Tulsa coaches going at it! I can't wait!

Bigworm on Saturday, March 17, 2007 at 12:10 AM

First of all, I don't think UK would make a package deal in order to get Bobby "The Future" Perry and his cousin Dwight. I believe there are several walk-ons for UK, however, you can only dress 15 players so I guess Dwight is consistently the hardest worker in practice so he gets to play.

Actually on second thought, yeah I am sure Bobby and Dwight were a package deal. Probably Woo and Sheray being another package deal since they are non-US citizens.

Bigworm on Saturday, March 17, 2007 at 1:41 AM

On Dwight Perry: The UK walk-on seemed to enjoy doing a few interviews explaining his six seconds on the court to start the game after assistant Dave Hobbs signed the scorebook which incorrectly had him starting instead of Bobby Perry.
"Right before the starting lineups were announced, the coaches told me because of a cross-up I would be starting," Perry said. "He told me just to foul quickly and not let anybody get by me.
"The guys picked on me a little for that. But I got to start, and we're undefeated with me as a starter."
What about it?
"He's our secret weapon," Joe Crawford said.

One day, Rick and Tubby decided to get together and play a round of 18 holes. Later in the round, the two finally reach the 14th hole. Tubby taps in his putt and suddenly, without hesitation, grabs his ball, bag, and begins to walk back to the clubhouse.
Pitino stands at the 15th hole, puzzled and wondering why Tubby just quit playing and left?
Curiously, Pitino yells to Tubby, "Where are you going? We aren't finished playing yet?!?"
To which Tubby replies, "Rick, you know I don't do the final four."

Oh man, if Crean gets hired there will be no greater rivalry than Louisville vs Kentucky. Tom Crean is suck a cock sucking slimeball piece of shit, and then you combine that with a "rivalry" team and I can't imagine the hype for those games.

Of course, Crean's only success came because he had a 6'10" dude that shot 50% from 3pt range, one of the better true college PGs with Deiner and Dwayne Wade, one of the best basketball players of the past 15 years so I doubt UK would be dumb enough to hire him.

Tom Crean is a good coach, but he ins't doing anything outstanding at Marquette. If he comes to UK I will be highly disappointed and that might just push me over the edge to purchase a sniper rifle or don the red and black.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Since OTS is leaving, Mitch Barnhart had better bring in someone with a totall different type of offense. Fans long for the old style of play that Pitino had, and some of these delusional fans want Ricky P back. I am one who doesn't want him back. Pitino doesn't have the same desire and drive that he had when he was at UK, not a knock, just my observation.

Next coach must be a great recruiter. Things got real nasty involved behind close doors. Tony Dungy (colts head coach) got involved,."

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 4:54 PM

If UK hires Pat Riley, I am ecstatic. If we get Billy D, Gillespie, Izzo, or D'Antoni I'd be happy. Calipari makes me uneasy, Crean makes me pissed off.

adrian on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 4:55 PM

Pat is my choice. UK better not hire a piece of shit Big East Coach. Or a piece of shit ACC coach. Or a piece of Shit Big 12 coach. Or a piece of shit Big 10 coach.


FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

adrian on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 4:56 PM

The only talent Mark Few recruited was a long haired cry baby.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 5:07 PM

and according to recruiting analysts, he wasn't a big name player. Morrison was ranked something like #200 in the senior class.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 5:08 PM

But at the same time atleast Morrison has emotions. He plays with heart and for that you can't fault him. When he loses it hurts him.

Jerome on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 5:09 PM

I'm sure there's at least one person in the UK athletic department thinking, "I think it's time we bring in someone from the MEAC"

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 5:13 PM

MEAC coach would be better than Crean.

I just can't wait for that crazy "dynasty defender" guy on youtube to post his next video. I even subscribed to his list of videos.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 5:40 PM

If I was OTS, that is basically what I would do. OTS is much classier than I am though. I can't wait to see who UK hires to replace him, because I really believe their is no upgrade for OTS as a coach. As a recruiter, yes, but I can't wait to watch the next sucker fail more with a much more talented team.

So, the rumor is that Barnhart told OTS to fire his staff or get fired. I am guessing OTS said fuck you, and like that, he gets a job that I am hearing $1.8-$2.5M

Yep, Barnhart tried to strong arm Tubby into firing his assistants, and OTS said fuck you, I can go elsewhere and make the same cash without the pressure fucker!

Brent on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 8:40 PM

The Salukis remind me of what UK basketball used to look like and that is the reason why I don't mind to see Tubby gone.

Bigworm on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 9:31 PM

Yeah, when I think about it I kind of agree. OTS is a great man, whoever, our team is boring to watch. We just need to make sure we change the style of play completely.

Phil on Friday, March 23, 2007 at 4:13 PM

Wade and I got our bikes yesterday. The bike is actually orange. My choices with this frame (which I liked) were orange or green. I liked the orange better.

One thing that I found interesting that I didn't realize when I was looking at the frame is that it is pivotless. It has an airshock on the back but nothing for the frame to pivot. It actually uses scandium on the chainstays so the back of the bike flexes and shit. Pretty slick.

that sux about randolph morris, but i'm still ecstatic, i haven't been on to post my joy and happiness yet, but i'm soooo happy tubby has left on his own terms and i didn't have to feel bad about us firing him. u laughed when i said calipari a couple weeks ago, but remember you heard me say it first, and now everyone is saying it. obviously donovan's the first choice, and when bozich first asked him about it, he didn't emphatically say no. the defending champs can't sell out their 12k arena every night, he can come to UK and be a god, so that's a real selling point, if it's not him, then it will definitely be calipari. i'd love d'antoni, but i can't imagine him leaving in the middle of a playoff run w/ the suns, but i would kill for him to run the suns offense at UK, that would be great seeing them throw up 90 points a game again.

douglas on Friday, March 23, 2007 at 6:05 PM

UK will suk next year though w/o morris. on another note, i'm definitely drinking tonight, me and cuban are going to joe's house for sure, bmac has to work so he's not taking his tampon out tonight. of course now that he has a woman he's living with a tampon in his punanny

douglas on Friday, March 23, 2007 at 6:08 PM

and for the record, dickie v is now officially on my shit list, as i'm sure he is with every UK fan. u don't bash the UK faithful like he did, yes tubby is very respected in the basketball community, but they're not seeing the big picture here in KY, and the overall style of play and UK losing games they should never lose, ever.

Phil on Friday, March 23, 2007 at 10:59 PM

Looks like Billy D to UK is a "done deal" with just a few details to be worked out.

Bigworm on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 11:34 AM

Douglas - Believe me you don't want JC coaching UK. He will have us on probation quicker than shit. Calipari is as $hady as they come in the business, so why would you advocate to go back on probation?

Dickie V is a piece of shit, period.

I don't blame Morris for leaving at all. Why would he want to stick around to learn a new system for, if I am learning a new system I am getting paid, which he now is.

Mike D. is from Hunington, W. VA and the word on the steet be that his wife wants to go back home...Lexington is 2 hours a way from Hunington, so might be more there than you realize. Plus rumors have it, that King Rex is pushing Mike towards Lexington.

I personally want Pat Riley as coach, but we all know that isn't going to happen. I also really like Tom Izzo, but no way he leaves MSU. Also, Izzo plays very similar to Orlando, so fans probably won't like that all that much. We need someone who wants to run, period. If OTS had left 3 years down the road, I'd be pulling hard for Andy Kennedy at Ole Miss...fuck it, I'd love to have Andy Kennedy.

Oh yeah, so the rumblings is that Jasper might transfer, and Meeks too...but those are only rumors..for now.

And for the record, OTS got screwed....am I happy with the losses the past two years...NO...but the fans just ran one hell of a coach out of Lexington.

Wes, you want Andy Kennedy? The former UC assistant and coach? A Huggins protege?

Phil on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 4:22 PM

J-Cal and Billy D (along with Billy G) are obvious front runners because they already have been given silly shortened names ala OTS or perhaps "Ratfaced".

If Andy Kennedy, Pat Riley or Tom Izzo want any part of this job their name needs an abbreviation state. "AK" is an obvious choice for Andy Kennedy as it provokes images of an AK47, which to the best of my knowledge is more aggressive than Tubby.

Pat Riley has managed to go his entire professional career without a nickname and has an 8 letter long name, but you can't coach at kentucky without a shortened name (it's a rule). His middle name is James so I suggest PJ for his name. Much like the OTS it completely obscures who you are talking about unless you've seen the abbreviation used before.

Tom Izzo already has an even shorter name with an incredibly distinctive last name. Which means it must be shortened. I suggest just going with "Iz"

Bigworm on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 10:27 AM

Jodie Meeks is staying at UK, so I am relieved on that one.

Brock - Andy Kennedy is a young energetic coach. That is what I think UK really needs, someone who wants to work their ass off and likes to do that. And he just landed 4 star PF Malcolm White in his 2008 class. That kid is going to be unreal.

Riley is old, but is ultra cool and a UK grad..so that is who I want. Not to mention 4 NBA championships and he could easily sway any HS kid to play for him by saying....you remind me of my boy d-wade....not there yet, but I can get you there. And I know, because I coach him.

I think Billy D ends up at UK. If not him, Mike D'Antoni.

billy d's going to UK, write it in stone. i know of three different reporters that have asked him point blank if he's interested and he's effectively dodged the question every time. that's not a question you dodge when your team is preparing to play to get into the final four, which of course they are now. there's no better time for him to leave, Florida's losing a ton of their talent next year, he can go to a place where they sell out every night and he's king of the state, he knows UK basketball and how important it is to the fans, unlike the Florida fans who live and breath football. that's why he has the infamous UK clause in his contract at Florida, he knew UK would come calling at some point. i'd be interested to hear where you're getting that info from Phil, but I totally believe it. as for calipari, i've come to the conclusion that he and d'antoni are the only other two people i'd even consider. i remember playing memphis earlier this year and pretty much gave up on the game before we played it, i knew we were losing. calipari can easily bring that back to UK. what's also funny, is the recruits for next year, patterson and lucas, that have been on the fence, I think will commit to UK once billy d or cal gets the call. neither one of them has crossed UK off the list by any means.

douglas on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 6:20 PM

tubby smith looking back on UK basketball:

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/...tory?id=2810986

"Well, I'd just tell him that you've got the greatest fans in the world, you really do," Smith said. "You are going to be supported, there will be people willing to do things for you, they're rabid. There's an element that's gotta be, you know, whatever the score is, they are worried about the score, not necessarily wins and losses. That's something you have to overcome; it's a challenge on a regular basis.

"We just built a $35 million practice facility; it's unbelievable. Rupp Arena is sold out and you don't have to sell tickets to games -- they've been sold out for 20 to 30 years, maybe longer than that. Financially, you're going to be set for life. The SEC is the toughest conference, you're going to be on TV. There's no real drawbacks, except you're on the stage all the time."

Phil on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 8:06 PM

The person that said Billy D is a done deal and just waiting for Florida to be out of the tournament to announce it is now hearing that other deals might be in order, such as Billy Gillespie. The new rumor is that Donavan might just be using UK's dire need for an impressive hire to force Florida, with a much larger athletic fund than UK, to actually pony up for him. This person with the "scoop" apparently buddy buddy with some pretty big name boasters and has been 100% on all the big rumors regarding UK over the past two years.

The salary info was apparently leaked from a paralegal whose law firm did the contract and it jived with numbers other people heard.

Of course, other people have verified these rumors too:
"Rick Pitino was spotted going into Porcini's with Barnhart" (pitino was in ohio that night recruiting)
"I overheard Mitch's wife at the Applebee's saying that Rick was coming" (three people verified this one - lot's at the applebee's that night and apparently Mitch's wife has terrible taste in food)

My vote:
Billy Donavan is either coming to UK for an insane salary, or is using the fact that he knows that UK has to bring in a big name and will have to pay dearly to do so. So he'll get some big numbers thrown at him and tell Florida that they better get out the checking book.

Of course, UK has never brought in a coach from an established power before, so I'd think they'd stay the course and bring in a quality coach from a lower tier program. But I know that the same people that wanted Tubby fired would be the same people stumbling over themselves looking to register "FireChrisLowery.com" or whoever they grab.
