And on top of that, you have the 40-50 million dollar payouts from the SEC network + bowl incentives. The SEC outdoes all other conferences in revenue and will for a long time. The B1G Ten is catching up, but it will never catch up to the SEC.
Well, you know, UC Berkeley is known for not wanting people to visit their campus;)
That was supposed to be a joke, lol, of course that would in no way be balanced divisions, but imagine, that would be absolutely epic if the SEC was like that, and there's a chance it will one day be like that
Imagine it. One day, the West is TAMU, Arkansas, Mizzou, Mississippi state, LSU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, & Oklahoma State, while the east is Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, & Kentucky. I'd view that as a balance of powers between divisions.
I think it should be AU in the east & Mizzou in the west, even though as a UK fan this would be awful for us, it makes way more sense, and I have to support the idea. However, Auburn/Alabama as a crossover would kill UT-Alabama unless the conference moved to 9 games and they played the third Saturday in October every 3 years, until expansion happen would happen, putting 2 new teams in the west(OU/Ok state) & moving Bama to the east, thus having both rivalries restored when the Big 12 rights grant expires in 2025 & expanding. If this happened next year, lets say the third Saturday in October would happen in 2018, 2021, & 2024 before both the Iron Bowl & third Saturday in October became yearly along with other old rivalries. I'm fine how it is, however. As a UK fan, we do get an easier schedule, but I'd suggest they should do something. They should either plan on moving AU to the east & adding Oklahoma & Oklahoma State in 2025 so they can move Bama to the east, or have 9 conference games a year like the PAC-12, Big 12, & Big Ten do so we can get the old rivalries, like Florida-Auburn or Auburn-Tennessee or better crossover games, like Bama-Florida & Georgia-Alabama more often. Next year, we get LSU at Tennessee & Texas A&M at Florida. I, for one, would like better crossover games. How about y'all?
I actual can agree with the theory you are saying. Yes, he is a former parole officer and you had a hilarious response to his comment about that if I can recall. But yes, he is a creep and the fact that he is asking for our names is weird, I'm not giving it to him, EVER. He is a stalker and he keeps the old habits he had a parole officer today. Yes, I have a facebook, it's a private facebook too, although I don't use it much, but I would NEVER let a deranged lunatic like Tom ever follow me on facebook. For some reason, his old person hobby is trying to start internet fights on SDS and other sports websites and he HATES to lose, that part is apparent. And Tom, I have met you at least once before, you know someone in my family very well, it's called insider knowledge when I state facts about you, and that's something I have power over you from getting over me, so I think I'll stay the course.
That entire response by you just proves your naive, but you didn't deny anything I said, so, go figure. You know I’m just telling people how to avoid internet fights with you because that’s what you’re looking for on this site, you’re not looking for debates, you’re just looking for fights. If you’re going to be that stubborn, keep on spewing out the same ole rhetoric, Tom. Just don’t respond to ME or MY comments anymore that I try to make to either debate someone or state actual facts, questions, or just talking to someone about the state of the program and such. You know what I mean. Also, you should go to CNN with your little witch hunt theory that everyone on here who disagrees with you is the same person. They love witch hunts there. The editors laugh at you. You are the laughing stock of this website. Plus, you didn’t respond to anything I actually said about Cal or Barnhart, you make no sense, you asked for my opinion, yet you only responded to the part where I proved you are just an old hypocrite. You’re aren’t denying it because you know it’s true and you aren’t winning when you debate me(BBNWildcat2012). So yea, YOU keep trying Tom
Tom, it isn't slander if it's true and it's pure hypocrisy to say it's slander when you post slander daily on every article. Even when something good happens, you try to destroy everyone's happiness by bashing anything & criticizing everything. Even after I basically just proved that I mutually knew you in real life and you were at one point a really good family friend? I don't get it. I'm only answering the questions that are relevant to what I said. First, I am not satisfied with just putting players in the NBA to answer that question. Cal can win through recruits, hell, Robic, is a better coach than Calipari when it comes to coaching. Cal can recruit, but isn't a good in game coach. Also, I don't like Barnhart. Barnhart is on track to make the school more money than UGA in 2017 and money is all they care about so they won't get rid of him for a while. Barnhart has lowered the quality of the K-Fund food drastically, unjustifiably increased ticket sales, sold out to JMI & Kroger, increased K-Fund donation for no reason, sold more blue lot parking passes than actual spots, banned non U of L visiting bands from performing at halftime so he can play more ads to earn more money, moved the student section and he band, cut down on pageantry budget by a very large %, got rid of the old U.K. logo, refuses to do anything that doesn't involve him making money for U.K. In a very greedy way, all while increasing his salary & mocking us, in a sense. However, UK football is improving, contrary to your bio, and if anyone needs help, it's you. You push this smug agenda of if you don't agree with me, it's either slander or you're SevenT. Also, you know the privacy game, especially as a former officer. You choose to tell people your identity, we do not. I don't give a fine f*ck for Facebook & I especially won't give my identity out to an old assh*le stalker like yourself who has proved time and time again that you are one. We can all disagree with your opinion, but you act like an intolerant snowflake when we disagree with you, and it's honestly ridiculous, you don't say, "I'll agree to disagree", you say "slanderous bigot."
Well, I’m not crazy, that award goes to Tommy A. However, a lot of what I said makes sense, and I think it’s fair to say that if you piss off some of the craziest fans in basketball, something is going to happen. I’ll disagree with you if you are disagreeing about my comments regarding UNC and how they shouldn’t have been in the tournament in the first place & how they are so smug and dishonest about the academic scandal, but regarding Higgins’ being harassed for his terrible referring, he deserved it, he’s been known as the most hated referee in college basketball well before this season, you can search that up. That game just solidified it. I’m not sorry he got harassed, however, threatening to kill someone is across the line, but harassing him when he’s blown multiple tournament & big games the last few years and nothing has happened to that bast*rd is justifiable. I HATE John Higgins and I see him being called out on his facebook page as justifiable. But, on the other hand, I can see why he and his employees were scared for their lives, because there is definitely one or two crazy UK fans who would actually mean it when they said “I’ll kill you.” The thing that makes me smile is that Higgins probably won’t call another UK basketball game ever and that the people who threatened him probably won’t be prosecuted, because I bet most of them were just very angry at Higgins for his bad calls and just had enough of how he’s screwed us over the years. BTW, nothing will happen to KSR for this incident either.LSUMC, please search up on google: Kentucky sports radio, no more John Higgins Please. It's a KSR article about John Higgins, and maybe then after reading it you'll realize just how many games he's cost UK and how bad of a ref he truly is. I had to put this in twice because SDS doesn't allow hyperlinks, that's why it shows up twice on my profile, because it says "awaiting moderation" for the comment that had the hyperlink of the actual article on KSR's website that I put the first time.Tell me you wouldn’t be extremely pissed off too if you were a UK fan and had to deal with him after reading that article. That’s why I’m so passionate about this, I have hated him for a long time and he SO deserved what happened to him. I agree to disagree with your opinion, because nothing pisses me off more than Higgins’ bad calls.Also, while I’m at it, just stop responding the Paris10, seriously. Let me explain. He’s on here to just to make asinine comments to piss people off because he enjoys doing it. That’s the bottom line, and if you make a comment back at him, it just adds fuel to his fire and motivates him to do it more. He’s going to be pissed at this comment and comment back angrily, 100% guaranteed from mentioning anything about him in any comment, even if you agree with him. We all know everyone on this site, UK fans, LSU fans, Alabama fans, & Texas A&M fans that he targets are all different people. Realize how when you comment something logical back at him it just pisses him off? Or when you comment something as simple “as that doesn’t make sense” or “why are you on here if you are just trying to piss people off” he gets angry? That’s because he doesn’t care, he’s 70 and is a retired parole officer living in Florida. I know where because what he doesn’t realize is he’s talking to someone whom he has met. Tom is an old family friend of mine that I didn’t realize for a while when I first joined this site. You see, he’s always saying to join him at the herald leader’s website to discuss your true views, so I took the opportunity to at least go to the website one time and see what he meant. By his facebook page’s profile picture, I knew he looked familiar. That’s when I realized I knew him from somewhere and I didn’t completely remember who he was and how I knew him until someone reminded me who he was when someone told me recently that he got in trouble as a substitute teacher at a high school in Lakeland, FL. The funny thing was I just happened to hear about that from a little birdie a little while back, although I will refuse to disclose how that happened, because Tom might be able to figure out who it was if I said that. You know, Tom, you always were a little nutty, but you are unbelievable on this site. You don’t even know it, but you are talking to someone whose family knows you very well. LSUMC, I’ve refused to comment to him for a long time due to the fact I realized I knew him at one point in my life and sheer morality made me not respond to his bs. However, he’s retired, so he has all the time in the world to make good comebacks to respond to you, so you got to think about this from his mindset. At his age, he’s simply not going to stop commenting on this website, it’s a hobby of his. So just do yourself a favor and stop commenting to him, he obsesses over when you do and loves it. Ignore him if he comments to you, that’s why over 80% of UK people on this website don’t comment to him. He is not going to stop his moronic comments, so either just get used to them and ignore them and realize that the only thing that will make him go away from this website in the future is time itself. Hopefully, all of the people who get accused of being the same person read this, because recently he’s gone after the #1 commenter on SDS, LSUMC, plus the second biggest Alabama commenter, Bamatime, & one of the biggest A&M commenters, Noblemen. SevenT should pipe it down some because he’s only provoking him to do it more, even though your responses are hilarious. Y’all need to heed my advice, but comment as you wish, but know that responding to him has been shown to increase his activity, which is always derogatory.
The best thing about this is that there is no way they will get convicted. It is going to be left up to the state of Kentucky to prosecute them, but there is no way in hell you will be able to convict them in Kentucky, considering it will be near impossible to get an impartial jury for a case like that. Kentucky fans will not prosecute other Kentucky fans for threatening John Higgins when Kentucky fans hate John Higgins. Good to luck to the prosecutors in this case, you're going to need more than luck to get them convicted. It's also a double standard that someone as bad as Higgins or any ref that is terrible and that makes horrible calls in big games that end up costing a team a game don't get punished. Not small fouls, I'm talking about the obvious f*cking bullshi*t that made me want to throw to remote at the tv watching the replay because it was so f*cking obvious they weren't calling them to try and swing the game in a certain direction. See Arkansas-UNC, UK-UCLA from December, UK-UConn when he reffed. Refs can miss some calls, but when it's as f*cking obvious as Higgins and his crew were in the UK-UNC game, something should be done. The NCAA has always hated UK, and even if it wasn't UK, they still wouldn't do anything. Mark Emmert is a disgrace, if he was even running a decent organization, Higgins wouldn't be reffing in the NCAA tournament to begin with considering his awful record as a ref. To the NCAA, it's only about if you're willing to travel and how big your name is. If they even had a little bit of decency and stopped caring only about money for just a second, college athletics would be a lot better. If you're as bad a ref as John Higgins is, you deserve some sort of reprimand, and that goes for any sport. It's ridiculous that coaches will get fined if they criticize reffing they thought was piss poor, especially if it actually was. What do you think the ignorant fools at the racketeering enterprise known as the NCAA thought would happen if they put John Higgins as the head referee in the UK/UNC game for the final four? For the most passionate fans in college basketball to remain silent and say "we'll get in next time" when the refs pushed UNC in an extremely obvious way???!!! They must think people are idiots if they think we don't see how obvious it was of them to try and push UNC back to the national title game, as a repeat appearance and a victory would generate great media buzz and in turn, more profit for the NCAA. Just watch the UNC-UK & UNC-Arkansas games, it was so obvious. Baylor & UNC both deserve the death penalty, and the NCAA remains silent on both, because they simply don't care. If they were respectable, they would punish both. I don't care if you say,"you are just mad cause you lost." Yes, I am mad, but the fact that the NCAA refuses to do anything when it comes to biases, cheating, games plagued by bad calls, and any other sorts of crap like that just makes my blood boil. They're taking a stand against the exact reasons why they were create, to create rules and to punish fairly if someone doesn't follow. UNC didn't even deserve to be in the tournament, and I hope these allegations of fake classes comes back to bite them in the a$s. Honestly, I'm happy UK fans destroyed his business' facebook page. I DO NOT CARE if you say, "it's wrong." What's wrong is the fact that he can still referee with his record and he wouldn't be punished for all the sh*tty games he's called. And that goes for all referees. When bad referees cost a team a game because of terrible calls, something needs to be done. Here's some examples. UK should have beaten Florida in Gainesville in 2014, the clock expired, everyone knows it, you are alone on that Florida fans, no excuse will ever work, and the refs go unpunished for that big time blemish. That's just one example from UK. Look at Arkansas/Florida from 2009. Look at the pass interference call in the Ohio State-Miami national championship game. Having a no-tolerance policy for bad referring is a great idea, but there isn't one in place because the NCAA simply could care less for anything that doesn't involve them making money. I hate bad referring because of how many games it's cost teams that deserved to win and it's just wrong. More so, the reason why so many UK fans got super pissed and trashed his business wasn't just because it was bad calls, it's because he has a history of doing this to UK because Higgins is such a POS and it was very obviously what he was trying to do. He can go to hell, I view UK fans trashing Higgins' business as karma. Do you really expect nothing to happen considering how badly his crew called that game? SERIOUSLY? UK fans have gotten even with John Higgins, but we will never forgive that SOB. How do you explain games, of any matter, that were lost to horrible calls? Say that it was unfortunate and let the same referee call the same, huge game, the next year, such as the national championship, without any reprimand? The only times I've seen refs suspended was the for the Miami-Duke kick return game where the guy's knee was down and they didn't call it after review and the Ok State-Central Michigan game this year. I'm genuinely happy he got karma from how he called that game, he was NOT going to walk away laughing after that game. I view this as almost a people's justice, in a sense, because it's an instance where people took matters into their own hands when the NCAA would do nothing to the referees would cost/blew the game, as the NCAA doesn't do jack sh*t in many instances, so it made me happy for UK fans, and for hating blown calls in general, because if that game was called fair, we would've won. If a ref blows a game and it's fairly questionable that they made some of the calls on purpose or missed some on purpose(such as Fox being fouled very hard at the rim before the 1st half ended and it wasn't called), something deserves to happen to the refs, so that's why I'm happy, it's karma & something ended up happening to the POS ref for blowing the game, because nothing else would've happened. That goes for more than this game. In other instances where it was much, much worse or less corrupt, something might've happened to the refs, but in this case it was an attack against the NCAA's corrupt mindset of not doing crap, which makes me smile, because the refs and the NCAA's style of no reprimanding and defending bullsh*t got the hammer dropped on it, as they finally did it to a fan base who wasn't going to just sit there and take it. Next season, Kentucky basketball might play at UNC. While the 2 sides haven't come to an agreement yet on the date, UK was sent something by UNC in 2016 to continue the home and home series for the next 2 years, starting in Chapel Hill in 2017-18, as UNC will be moving to a 20 game conference schedule in 2019-20 & might not be able to continue the series, so this might be the last of the home and home/non CBS sports classic between the 2 schools. If we do play at UNC in 2017, I hope we utterly and completely kick their a$$ till they're demoralized and begging for mercy. Why? Because if you're a school that's caught up in a fake classes scandal so your athletes can be eligible to play, verbally mock other school presidents about how you're getting away with it(UNC mocks Maryland's president), shouldn't have been in the the 2016-17 NCAA tournament in the first place, probably should get the death penalty for the scale of the scandal, & are pushed by the NCAA to get to the Final Four and think you've deserved/won your success and boast about that when you know the truth, YOU HAVE IT COMING.
Anyone know what the week 1 SEC on CBS game is? Or the 1 OOC game(like GT-UGA or UF-FSU or neutral field featuring an SEC team vs P5 like UofL vs. Auburn 2015) on CBS will be?
I think someone is just salty that he got kicked off KSR for posting the same type of derogatory comments you post here on their website. Also, if you don't have anything to say that you like about UK sports, anything at all, which is apparent, why even bother to come here to comment? You just come here to hate on UK, not even to express a reasonable opinion. That just baffles me, I don't understand the thinking behind it. I stopped commenting to you a long time ago since whenever I challenged something you said, you called it "slander." That's why other UK fans on here will no longer respond to you. Honestly, piss off you troll. You make all UK fans look like a joke. Your sole purpose is to piss other UK fans off because you don't like the fact that once you moved down to your little retirement paradise in Florida, UK is finally at least getting decent in football after all the years you had to watch them suck since UK athletics decided to invest more in basketball than football years ago.
I agree with him most of the time, but that comment was just ridiculous. I'll only say that I think that players should get some money for having their appearance in NCAA football & basketball video games. The bottomline is that the NCAA just wants all of the money from the very successful, multi-million dollar video game series, and are greedy to the point where they wouldn't want to give up a cent. They don't care about anything else, the whole reason the game isn't made anymore is because they wouldn't let players just get even a little money for their likeness from an NCAA sponsored video game. NCAA = Racketeering Enterprise
Cowturd needs to go before any other show, such a waste of a time slot for ESPN
I know, I don't want that to happen. I made a best case scenario thing and it looked pretty nice a while back, but the way things are shaping up it's looking like the power 4 is more a of reality than 5 super 16 conferences, which means some of the things I said above probably could come true. For example, VT & UVA to the B1G Ten is something I can see, they're a package deal, OU & Ok. State is something I can see, Cincy/UConn to the ACC, & Boise to the Pac are all things I can see happening in the near future.
Lol, what? They would never give up their independent status with their nice NBC contract, plus the ACC would probably have to add Navy to satisfy them & balance the teams. That way they could still keep the USC series & play Navy/Boston College every year leaving 2 games open for the Stanford & Army series. Who knows? However, that's probably not going to happen. I'll bet on the fact that when the Big 12 collapses, because it's inevitable now because of the route Texas is taking, the leftover teams will form a new AAC. I think that OU & OK. St will join the SEC, while TCU/Baylor/Boise State/BYU will join the Pac-12, and I highly doubt Utah would veto because the addition of BYU is better than SDSU or CSU and would make the conference MUCH stronger and it fits geographically. CSU, SDSU, TTU, Hawaii, & UNLV won't get into the Pac-12 simple because there are better, more stable options. That makes 2 complete conferences right there, don't forget, the Pac-12 cares about academics and Texas Tech is the west coast equivalent of WVU, there is no way they'd get into the Pac-12 without Texas coming with them, that's why I added Baylor & TCU, 2 good football schools that are also private schools that care about academics. UT will go independent. The ACC won't add ND, they'll add Cincinnati, UConn, WVU, & most likely ECU, as the Memphis market already belongs to the SEC & Philly doesn't care for Temple. I added 4 because the Big Ten will probably try and successfully steal UVA & VT, that's the B1G's most likely option, while moving IU to the B1G Ten West, taking Boston College for the northeastern market they already have with Rutgers would be a mistake, they need to add power conference teams. Meanwhile, the new AAC would become Kansas St., Kansas, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Houston, SMU, USF, UCF, Temple, Navy, Tulsa, Tulane, Memphis, & San Diego St. become the next power conference & AAC. It's probably the most logical thing that would happen in terms of realignment, but definitely not most favorable. I also think there would be a chance Colorado State & possibly Air Force would join this AAC, actually, I think I'll add them, because all conferences would be 16 teams and that's what it looks like.
There is no competition between Barker & Stephen Johnson, hell, there is more of a QB battle between Johnson & Gunnar Hoak. Johnson has got the job locked up unless he does very badly in the first few games of the season. I've even heard rumors that Barker might transfer, and I wouldn't be surprised, Johnson & Hoak are the future of UK's quarterbacks.
I'm assuming there were no other options for week 11. We beat Mizzou & Loserville on the road last season, otherwise it's just insulting to say us beating Vandy in Nashville is an upset.
I just discovered a pretty big flaw in these projections, the Taxslayer bowl & Music City bowl swap off each year ACC-Big Ten vs. SEC. Next year, the Taxslayer bowl will be SEC vs. Big Ten & the Music City will be ACC vs. SEC, as last year it was GT-UK & NE-UT & year before that A&M vs UL & UT-IA. Indiana-Kentucky in Music City & USC-UofL wouldn't make sense until the 2018 season. You should update it, UK-Uofl wouldn't be a redo in music city bowl right after they played each other so other teams need to be in your projections for those 2 bowls.
I hate to agree with him, but Paris is sitting back in his chair laughing at how much we hate Barnhart now saying,"I told you so", and I agree with him now:/
No need to remind me
This is well deserved. This is a pathetic joke naming it Kroger field, Barnhart and the administrators disgracing the university like this is ridiculous. The administrators deserve to get hell for allowing this to happen. No Kentucky fans will ever refer to it as Kroger Field, we are all going to mock Barnhart until they change this BULLSH*T. Kentucky athletics even turned off the ability to comment on Instagram and Facebook on their most recent posts about the renaming because of all the hate they were getting.
Dreams wouldn't come true at Disneyland Stadium though:)
It's going to be called Commonwealth stadium no matter what. Mitch is an egomaniac, if it's the field name he's doing it because he doesn't like CM Newton, our former AD. But seriously, it better be the field name, he will get hell for this if it isn't. Who in their right mind would do this, honestly??? Kroger field? Of all names to rename it, that's the stupidest name I've heard.
Mitch you f*cked up big time
Jon Toth did sign with the 49ers though, but he still went undrafted
You can get alcohol in the suites & premium seating areas at Commonwealth, but not the general seating. This will probably change in the future because of the demand, popular opinion, & the revenue it will generate. That last one will be why, we all know how these conferences operate, money first.
Shots fired, lol
