Kyle Tucker and Curtis Burch talk both UK football and basketball in this podcast, which includes some updates on basketball recruiting.
Kyle described UK’s football game Saturday against Tennessee as a “win this game or lose the fan base type of game.” He also wrote Kentucky Football: For Mark Stoops and Cats, it’s win Saturday against Tennessee or lose the fans. Stoops had a chance to tell everyone in his Monday presser to relax after a 45-7 beatdown in Starkville, but instead he used more measured words, and the guys discuss why.
Then the conversation turned to basketball. The expectations are most likely too high for this year’s Kentucky team, and coach John Calipari tried to temper those thoughts in an interview with Kentucky Sports Radio. Kyle also wrote about this in his Insider Column: Kentucky Insider: John Calipari gives growing pains warning, and he means it this time.
While looking forward to this season, the topic of the Louisville rivalry came up. Calipari also had comments on Louisville during that interview with KSR.
Up next, we cover some recruiting, including a pick for Bol Bol to go to Oregon, a positive update on some guards considering UK and a team to keep an eye on with the recruitment of R.J. Barrett.
Finally, Kyle answers the title question of this podcast: What is more likely; Calipari landing Bol Bol or UK Football going to the Outback Bowl?
