Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Today on KSR: Madness guest list, Star Wars trailer, ugly Florida uniforms


Shoutout to these fans for repping the Cats at 10,900 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park a few weekends ago. Based on the pictures I saw on the news yesterday, that vista is probably covered up with snow right about now. Yet, it was still 85 degrees here in Nashville yesterday. Sigh.

Here’s what you can expect in the wonderful world of UK sports today…

The guest list for Madness takes shape

With football on a bye, we shift into basketball mode this week. Media Day is Thursday, and on Friday, Kentucky will host a bevy of elite recruits for Big Blue Madness. Here’s the guest list thus far:

  • 2018: Immanuel Quickley (committed), Bol Bol, Zion Williamson, Darius Garland
  • 2019: James Wiseman, D.J. Jeffries, Keion Brooks, Tyrese Maxey
  • 2020: Jaemyn Brakefield, Jalen Johnson
  • 2021: Zion Harmon

Between Bol, Zion, and James Wiseman (No. 1 player in 2019), I don’t think we can overstate how important this weekend is for recruiting. We’ll have a primer for you later this week.

Mark Stoops, Eddie Gran, and the offense will address the media

Because it’s a bye week, we didn’t get Mark Stoops’ weekly press conference yesterday, but today, he’ll join Eddie Gran and talk to reporters after practice. Check the site this evening to see what he has to say about his team after watching the Mizzou tape.

If you missed it last night, Stoops sounded optimistic that the team would be healthy by the Mississippi State game:

Mark Stoops Shares an Optimistic Injury Report

Speaking of that Mississippi State game, we found out yesterday it will kick off at 4 p.m., so make your social plans accordingly.

Hopefully they get the wildfires in wine country under control

It’s been tough to see the pictures and videos of the California wild fires this week. So far, 11 people have been killed, 1,500 structures destroyed, and over 100,000 acres burned. Wine country is some of my favorite country, so here’s hoping they get the fires under control before there’s no Pinot Noir and Cab Sauv left.

Did you see the new Star Wars trailer?

If not, you may be the only one. The new trailer was must-see TV in our house last night:

I’m nowhere near as big a Star Wars fan as my husband, but that little creature hanging with Chewbacca — a Porg, I’m told — is pretty cute.

How about the new Florida uniforms?

Just when you thought Florida couldn’t get any more Florida. All that’s missing is a pair of jean shorts. They’ll sport those monstrosities on Saturday vs. Texas A&M.

I’m recording a new episode of The OTT Podcast

Fake Barney and I will record a new podcast tonight to catch up on all the happenings the past few weeks, which reminds me, why haven’t we heard anything about the UNC final report? Surely the major fundraising event in Chapel Hill is over by now?

Radio in an hour. Until then, tackle your morning with the fierceness of the BYU cougar:

    If only BYU football was as fierce as their mascot’s moves…

    LOL, How do we like our checkerboard uniforms now? Just when I think the Gators are cool for their Tom Petty tribute…they do this.

    1. Mathlete

      I had to double check that Florida actually is a Nike school, that fugly design has Adidas written all over it though. A little gator scaling in the numbers might be cool (reminiscent of the honeycomb in GA Tech’s numbers), but wow. And yet, I guarantee Florida fans will love, buy, and wear those things around Gainesville.

      Side note: hopefully Nike doesn’t release a furry wildcat jersey for us!

      Those remind me of the River Monsters uniform that Jared Lorenzen used to wear.

    3. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      They remind me of the pantyhose I saw at Walmart the other day.

      I agree with Mathlete. That jersey screams Adidas.

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      The helmet is cool though.

    5. UK Big Board Update

      ChrisGettelfinger shopping for women’s pantyhose in Walmart should surprise absolutely no one.

      Love you too Big Board! 😘

      GAY !!!

    8. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Nope. It’s all in fun, and completely manly.

  3. Go_Wildcats_Go

    Wow, respect for the BYU mascot! Well done!

  4. Adam From Awesome Trot

    Give BYU Cokes for a month and all of a sudden they are dancing machines.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Well done sir! 🙂

    2. MadHatter

      This lol

    I live in Florida and I can tell you this. The Florida fans I know are very angry with this look and hope it is for only one game. This is what happens when a shoe brand designs your uniforms.

  6. truebluethroughandthrough

    I guess I’m the only one, I like the uniforms. Definitely don’t want a Fuzzy cat uniform though.
