Walk-Ons Podcast with Special Guest Matt Jones!

Today, Ben and I have our first guest in podcast history. We’re very pleased that it’s Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, the best and most successful independent college basketball website out there. We talk about how he built the site, what’s happening down at Kentucky, what’s happening up at Duke, and the relationship between writers like him and the mainstream media. Afterward, we try to stick around for Tony Parker’s announcement, but we can’t cut the mustard so we fake an announcement that turns out to be true. Don’t tell the NCAA.

  13. Shane says:

    Thanks to all the newcomers for stopping by, it’s much appreciated. Hope you continue to enjoy the Walk-Ons. You didn’t even get to hear us mock Bleacher Report or put Ben, a world-renowned trivia whiz, to the test. Stay tuned, pals, and thanks again.


  14. Catfan says:

    I logged on to hear Matt but listened to the entire podcast because you guys were very entertaining. Keep up the good work.

  15. Catfan says:

    KSR is looking for new talent if you guys ever decide to leave the dark side. I’m convinced that wavering hand motion that all the fans do when opposing players shoot free throws has somthing to do with the force. JJ great show.

  16. BigBlueSkyDog says:

    Great show guys. When I want to learn something about the Dookies, I’ll come to you guys first.

  17. Uk2bucs says:

    Good job guys. Enjoyed the perspective of a different fan base. Go cats. Oh yeah want to know more of the Dawkins rumors

  18. Great college basketball podcast, I’m a fan of UK but ill he subscribing to the podcast.

  19. Robukpt says:

    You guys were the antithesis of clay Travis. Not only were you fair, you were beyond nice and welcoming and even appreciative. I listen to and read ksr everyday and you delved into some areas that were an extremely interesting listen. And I, like most, stayed for the rest. I hope you have a huge bump in downloads and/or subscriptions. Well-played sirs.

    1. DevilWolf says:

      Glad to see all the UK folks chiming in. Shane and I are definitely Duke fans, but we just talk college basketball in general so hopefully we’ll keep you guys interested through future guests and shows. Thanks for the kind words, y’all.

      – Ben

  20. Bruce says:

    Am I the only one who came here excited to hear Duke recruit Matt Jones interviewed and left very disappointed??? Damn…

  21. domain says:

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared
    to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will probably be
    back to get more. Thanks
