Big Blue Views - @Round_Daddy Talks NBA Draft; @KyTasteBuds Take On NYC

Another NBA Draft and another crop of Cats see their dreams come true.  Which teams were the winners, which were the losers & what's up next for the ones not drafted (Briscoe, Willis, Hawkins & Humphries)? Tamara and Leigh (aka @KyTasteBuds) took on NYC this past week.  Be sure to tune in to hear about some of the great experiences they had (Yankee Stadium, anyone?) We are still celebrating recoveries!  Most notably, former UK great Rex Chapman has been speaking out recently about his opioid addiction and recovery.  Last night on The Cameron Mills Show, after Rex shared his story, Cameron revealed he, too, had suffered through a 3-year addiction.  We'll talk about these stories of recovery and the hope they give everyone who is, or knows an addict.

Big Blue Views - Catching Up With Andre Riddick; Introducing @KYTasteBuds

It's June and things haven't slowed down at all for Kristin and Michele as they have yet another jam-packed show for you. Do you hear that roar coming from Lexington?  It must be the crowd at The Cliff as Kentucky won both games Sunday to set up a winner-take-all matchup with NC State Monday night with a ticket to next weekend's Super Regional on the line. And even though it's baseball season, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy a basketball guest, especially if it's a former Wildcat.  Tonight, the ladies are excited to welcome Andre "The Rejector" Riddick to the show.  We'll be talking about Andre's time at UK, what he did after college and what he's up to today.  You won't want to miss this! Yes, we're a sports show, but what goes with sports?  Great food, of course.  We'll be talking with @KYTasteBuds, two best friends who are travelling the state to bring you the best in food and entertainment that our great Commonwealth has to offer.  As always, we welcome all callers, so be ready to call in with YOUR views  646-716-4741

Big Blue Views - Kristin Returns; @FredMaggard Is Our Memorial Day Guest

Kristin is finally back and we are ready to brighten your Memorial Day with a fantastic show. Most importantly, we will be discussing what Memorial Day is, why it exists and how it applies to veterans.  There's lots to cover with UK Baseball, UK Softball, and UK Track and Field.  We'll tell you whose season is done and who is still in contention for a championship. UK Football is never out of view (who thought we'd be talking football in May???) as the Wildcats continue to sign highly ranked recruits and are getting geared up for what many think will be Coach Mark Stoops' best season yet.  And you can't talk UK Football without talking to our guest, the legendary Freddie Maggard! (@FredMaggard) Be ready to call in with YOUR views....if there's someone you'd like to remember on Memorial Day, give us a call!

Big Blue Views - @Aaron_Torres Talk All Things NBA; Plus Cats on the Diamonds

Heather joins Michele for one more week as Kristin will returning on Memorial Day.  Never fear -- we will continue to have Heather make appearances and I've no doubt she will fill in as a co-host in the future! Our guest tonight is our friend and "One and Fun" author, @Aaron_Torres of FOX Sports.  Aaron will be primed & ready to talk about the NBA draft, Hamidou Diallo, and maybe even do a little De'Aaron Fox-Lonzo Ball comparison.  Whatever direction the discussion takes, rest assured it will be entertaining! UK Baseball only managed 1 win against Florida this weekend but they're still in the hunt for a national seed if they can win a couple of games in this week's SEC Tournament.   We'll get you excited to follow the Bat Cats as they being the post-season. UK Softball took care of business this past weekend as they hosted an NCAA Regional.  The reward for the Cats is a trip to the Super Regionals where they have to face #3 Oregon.  It's a tough test, but the Cats seem to be peaking at the right time. UK Track & Field also joins the party of Kentucky athletic teams that have hosted (or will be hosting) NCAA touranment events.  Thursday - Saturday, the Cats will be participating in the East preliminaries with hopes of sending a large contingent to Nationals.    As always, we want to hear YOUR views - Diallo or Johnson, which would you prefer?  Bamba to Texas, what does that mean for UK?  Be ready to call in at 646-716-4741

Big Blue Views - @KyleTucker_SEC Talks Williams, Briscoe & More

It may be mid-May, but things haven't slowed down for UK Athletics at all and Heather & Michele are here to catch you up on all of this week's news. First up, we have Kyle Tucker from SEC Country (@KyleTucker_SEC) and he will weigh in on the Jarren Williams re-commitment, thoughts on the NBA Combine, and Isaiah Briscoe's comments that set off the latest BBN storm. UK Baseball had a great week, defeating IU on Tuesday & sweeping Georgia over the weekend.  With Clemson dropping 3 to UL, the Cats have crept back up to #6 and could be a lock for a national seed with a sweep of FLA this weekend AT Florida. UK Softball is preparing to begin their post-season run as they take their over #14 seed and begin regional play this weekend in Lexington.  The SEC also made league history getting all 13 teams into the NCAAs for the first time ever.

Big Blue Views - @_KeithGarrett from Big Blue Banter; Baseball, Diallo & More

Michele and Heather return this week to catch you up on all the Big Blue happenings! Bowl Rings - good or bad?  Seems these rings have upset a lot of people.  What are YOUR views? UK Baseball - still on a roll.  Last week, the Cats beat #3 UL and then nabbed 2 of 3 from #8 LSU to win that series.  Cats now sitting on top of the SEC East and are ranked as high as #6 nationally. Hamidou Diallo seemingly shocked the BBN last night when he announced he was going to declare for the NBA draft but NOT hire an agent.  We'll discuss this event & share our reasons why you shouldn't have been surprised nor overly worried. What's the newest thing for the BBN?  Why, Big Blue Banter!  Co-founder Keith Garrett (@_KeithGarrett) will join us to give everyone the scoop on BBB as well as talk a little football and basketball, too. Be ready to call in with your views!  646-716-4741

Big Blue Views - UK to Sweet 16 & More Madness

Heather and Michele are ready to brighten your Monday and have a jam-packed show. March Madness might have gotten off to a slow start for the first round games, but the 2nd round gave us all the hype that Madness promises each year. The ACC?  Horribly overrated it seems as 9 teams started the weekend, but only 1 survived.  Meanwhile, the "crappy' SEC?  Three teams advance to next weekend's Sweet 16.  We'll review who did what to whom. One of the biggest surprises for Kentucky was how they found ways to win WITHOUT Malik Monk going on a scoring binge  How important is that for the Cats as they move on?   The Kentucky women unfortunately lost their 2nd round game to a feisty Ohio State squad.  We'll talk about Makayla Epps and her final game in a Wildcat uniform. As always, we want to hear YOUR views.  What were your favorite tourney moments?  What about Gregg Marsh

Big Blue Views - SECT, Brackets; @MariaT_KSR

Heather and Michele are back this week to bring you another fun Monday night show. It was yet another successful SEC Tournament for the Wildcats and it appears UK is peaking at the perfect time.  Whether it's a grind-it-out game or one that goes full-speed for 40 minutes, the Cats seem to be able to adjust and still get the win.  We'll break down the games & let you know the highs and lows. Brackets? Yep, they're everywhere.  We'll discuss UK's draw and look at the whole field.  Who has the biggest chance of getting knocked out early?  What teams will surprise?  Can the Cats get to the Final Four? The women will find out their fate tonight during Selection Monday for the Women's NCAA.  We'll let you know where you can see our women's team as they prepare for another March run. We'll be joined by @MariaT_KSR

Big Blue Views - @ChristiUKSports w/KY WBB Talk; Plus Lots of Men's Hoops

Be sure to tune in on time tonight as Kristin has an announcement to explain her brief hiatus from the show (she won't be hosting tonight).  But never fear -- our good friend, and occasional guest co-host, @HeatherTungate7 will be filling in while Kristin sits out. Tonight, we are excited to have Christi Thomas (@ChristiUKSports) from the UK Sports Network, and host of the Coach Matthew Mitchell Show joins us.  We'll talk about our ladies and their huge win vs #3 Mississippi State and how things look for the ladies as they prepare for the SEC Tournament. We'll also be talking about the guys.  After an uneven performance at Missouri on Tuesday, the Cats bounced back to tame the Gators on Saturday WITHOUT De'Aaron Fox.  Lots of interesting things in college hoops this week:  UL lost to UNC, Duke lost TWICE, and undefeated Gonzaga lost their final home game to end their quest for a perfect season (kinda makes UK's 38-0 start in 2015 more impressive, huh?) The Oscars gaffe, the impending birth of a giraffe....any topic is fair game.  Just be prepared to call in with YOUR views and let us know what you think.  Or you can interact with the show live by tweeting to @BigBlueViews! 646-716-4741
