    Hagans called 'trash' as opposing coaches anonymously let fly criticism of UK's outgoing players

    Coaches who faced Kentucky this past season were asked about the UK players who have entered the NBA Draft - Tyrese Maxey, Immanuel Quickley, Ashton Hagans, Nick Richards, EJ Montgomery and Kahlil Whitney. They were promised anonymity to offer their opinions to The Athletic's Sam Vecenie. The coaches didn't hold back. We discuss what was said and John Calipari's reaction.
    Also, Kyle talked to Notre Dame's Mike Brey, Pittsburgh's Jeff Capel, Florida State's Leonard Hamilton, Georgia Tech's Josh Pastner and former Wake Forest coach Danny Manning about Olivier Sarr. What do they think about the player UK is getting and should he, will he be granted immediate eligibility?

Not What it Used to Be

I’ve listened to this podcast since it started, and have been a big fan no matter who the hosts were at the time. That being said, the recent episodes have been quite political and self-righteous as another reviewer posted. On Wednesday’s episode, Dan and Kyle insinuated very strongly that you’re a racist if you have questions or differing thoughts regarding the current situation in America regarding race. Since when does having questions, make you a racist? As another reviewer noted, these sports podcasts can be a nice 30 minute reprieve from being bombarded by politics and having to choose sides. This one used to be that, but not anymore.

Really good UK Podcast

Used to love this podcast but really has become THE most consistently negative sports podcast I listen too. Every single take is the most negative outlook and I usually don’t mind politics mixing with sports on occasion but if u listen to this get ready for a political topic EVERY show mixed with condescending self-righteousness and I’m not even conservative.
