GLASGOW — The Kentucky Sports Radio crew featuring well-known personalities like Matt Jones, Ryan Lemond, and Drew Franklin held their Friday morning show in Glasgow at Don Franklin Auto.
A decent-sized crowd full of fans of University of Kentucky athletics was on hand as the main topic of discussion was the basketball team’s upcoming game against Alabama on Saturday.
“It’s always been one of our best stops,” Jones said of the city of Glasgow. “It was our very first stop eight years ago, and I got a lot of friends here so I love coming to Glasgow. We always get a great response.”
“We are getting ready for the game tomorrow against Alabama,” said Jones. “We are talking a lot of UK football because they are good. We talk about them even during basketball season. The crowd was into it today so it was a good show.”
Another topic talked about a lot during the show was the Sporting News’ early college football top-25 poll for the 2020 season.
Louisville’s team was ranked at the No. 19 spot in the poll while the Wildcats were nowhere to be found in the poll. Kentucky recently beat Louisville 45-13 on Nov. 30.
“It’s just ridiculous,” Jones said. “The media has coaches they like and they really like Scott Satterffield. Louisville might be good, but I think people continue to underestimate Kentucky.”
Chris Franklin of Don Franklin Auto was able to comment on KSR holding their show at the dealership as it’s part of a marketing package set up between Don Franklin Dealerships across the state and KSR.
“They will be going to all of our stores— 20 different locations over the next few weeks,” Franklin said. “Anytime we open up a new store we want to get as much business as we can. They (KSR) have a huge voice all over the state. I think it went great. We were expecting a large crowd. There are a lot of Kentucky fans here (in Glasgow) so we figured it would be a big crowd today.”
