February 19th 2018 Podcast

Hey gang! We do have video, however, I’ve dealt with some major internet issues today. Currently uploading and hope to have the video embedded soon.

For now, enjoy the audio podcast — recorded at Powell County High School. Love the cheerleaders in the background! Aside from being cut short this week, this is one of my favorite episodes.

Jon and I opened up about our Mr/Miss Basketball picks and I interviewed 1986 Sweet 16 Champion Coach Dave Fraley. He made some awesome comments about our tournament structure and we talked about our favorite things about the fellowship at Rupp each season.

Disclaimer: We faced audio issues yet again this week and have decided to separate our relationship with the current platform we are using to record. Please be patient as we move our recordings and hope for improvement in Week 7. A sincere thanks for sticking with us as we figure things out — we were excited to provide such a clear cast last week only to have the low-quality audio results return this week.

Jon and I have decided to begin traveling to be in the same place during recordings and will hopefully be bringing you video coverage, along with a better audio version of our podcast, very soon.

Thanks for your support.

Jon and Kayla press through to record their episode after hours on Sunday night to bring you their information about the State Tournament draw, a regional overview, Mr/Miss Basketball contestants, and some big wins that happened this week. They discuss their feel good story of the week and as always, Jon tells us how he really feels. Listen in!

The All A State tournament has wrapped up, Kayla and Jon share their thoughts about the girls and boys tournaments, they discuss several unexpected wins that happened across the state. Player of the Year and Coach of the Year voting is now open and they tell you how to do so. The duo introduces the concept of two new segments — “Where are they now?” and something similar to the C’Mon Man moments on ESPN. Jon and Kayla’s favorite gyms are listed along with a moment to talk about the terrible tragedy that happened at one of our great high schools.


The podcast’s audio issues are now a thing of the past, too — you’ll enjoy the listen that much more. Let us know what you think!

Jon and Kayla are thrilled that the Louisville Invitational Tournament was finished and discuss the results. They discuss where they stand on Classes for Kentucky High School Basketball, Kayla has a few things to say about bleacher refs, and both give Don Irvine a nod for being an upstanding guy. Player of the Week is given along with All-A results for the week, a preview for the All-A state tournament, and the duo gives their personal Top 5 teams — which isn’t so different this week. They also talk about a young lady’s major accomplishment at Muhlenberg County, among other things… tune in.

Kayla and Jon are back to talk about a week of game-impacting weather — including the Louisville Invitational Tournament. Both discuss being bummed that the 71st LIT wasn’t completed among other disappointing cancellations. The duo talks realignment, the All A classic, and name the FIRST EVER Bluegrass Basketball Player of the Week, and bring up a few funny/amazing moments that happened (including the Caverna and Adair County 200+pt game.)

Jon gets fired up big time in his Tell Us How You Really Feel segment. Both Kayla and Jon talk about their different perspectives on what Wes Strader meant to them — And as always, Jon has jokes about Kayla’s love for the Thundering Herd… plus much, much more. The podcast went over an hour this week — chock full of great information.

Both are making a plea to you for more Girls Basketball info — keep us informed at @BluegrassBball on Twitter.

Episode 2 of the brand new Bluegrass Basketball Podcast is live and I think we finally got our act together a little bit better with the audio. Things will improve as we press forward.

Listen in as Jon Moore and Kayla VanHoose enjoy themselves discussing the games they saw this week, players worth mentioning, and games to watch next week — and Jon’s preview of the Louisville Invitational Tournament.

Jon also publicly calls Kayla out on what he finds to be an absurd (basketball related) name for a house cat. Definitely worth a listen!
