    Wildcat Chatter 9.20.2015

    in Sports

    First, we talk about our frustration level. Then we transition to talking specifically about the offense. Topics in this section include:


     



    Has the offense played poorly due to strength of schedule or because of systemic issues?
    The woes of the offensive line.
    The likelihood of Drew Barker becoming the starter.
    AND SO MUCH MORE!


     


    Second, we discuss the defense. Topics in this section include:


     



    Did the defense's performance against Florida signal improvement or was the Gators' offense that bad?
    The secondary is better.
    Denzil Ware has exceeded expectations.


     


    Third, Keith attended the game as a member of the press. He gives us insight on the atmosphere to include, but not limited to: tailgating, press booth, and the Cat Walk. We also ponder what's better: Shreveport, LA or Tampa, FL.


    Finally, we discuss out-sized expectations inflating capabilities, fans Tweeting players, football ain't basketball, nut jobs on message boards, and we wax philosophic on bloggers pumping sunshine - for the sake of web clicks - being a detriment to wider expectations. It's a topic I could talk about for days, but will avoid because I doubt many care about "inside baseball" blogging talk. Oh, and we also talk about Ryan Timmons in the last three minutes.


    It served as therapy for the three of us; hopefully, it does you too. We close on a positive note. Enjoy!

    Nov. 13: Pregame for Northwestern

    in Sports

    The Boilermakers need to find a way to build momentum in the last quarter of the season, but doing that at any point this season has been a problem. On Gold and Black Radio, we'll take a look at Purdue, including the status of Coach Darrell Hazell, and what it would take to beat Northwestern on Saturday. Plus, we feature senior receiver Danny Anthrop, who has battled through soreness for much of his final season. And we talk to sophomore point guard P.J. Thompson, whose Boilermakers open the season on Friday night. That and much more.

    Wildcat Chatter 7.30.2015

    in Sports

    In this episode, Keith, Will, and guest Zipp Duncan break down and preview UK's offensive line heading into the season. Zipp, since he used to play for UK, goes into great detail on zone-blocking schemes and what it's like to be recruited.


    In this episode we talked about: the job offensive line coach John Scharlman has done developing and recruiting the past two years, Zipp goes into further detail on the nuances of a zone-blocking scheme, the lack of depth at offensive tackle, what advice Zipp has for UK's offensive linemen commits in the 2016, among other things.


    Zipp also told a great Rich Brooks story, but my recorder failed me as he was beginning the story. I'm sorry about that (we'll have to have Zipp back to tell it again), and I'm also sorry for the way my cold makes me sound.

    Interview with esteemed actress Rena Owen

    in Entertainment

    With her timeless beauty, her powerful presence and the passion and spirit she puts into every performance, New Zealand born actress Rena Owen has been and continues to be an inspiration to many worldwide. With an impressive career spanning over 3 decades, Rena has performed in many great roles ranging from her time in London, to her return to New Zealand where she starred alongside Temuera Morrison in her acclaimed role as Beth Heke in the now cult classic film 'Once Were Warriors', and on to her numerous Hollywood roles including the new upcoming Vin Diesel movie 'The Last Witch Hunter'. This personally is a huge honor for me as I have admired Rena greatly since I first saw her performance as Beth Heke and the strength she promoted within that film to help women and men alike worldwide to have the strength and courage to walk away from dangerous and at times fatal situations of domestic violence.


    So please tune in and join us to hear to Rena speak of her amazing career and feel free to comment any questions you would like to ask her :)


    many blessings from your host Tekina Wildcat (Lisa Howard)
