One step closer to Virginia Tech
The Hokies may not be the marquee non-conference opponent we all had hoped for, but the closer we get to Saturday’s game, the more excited I am to see how the Cats respond to their potent offense. We’re used to seeing Kentucky overwhelm opponents with its speed and athleticism, but Virginia Tech is one of the rare teams thus far capable of keeping up. Plus, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s cousin plays for them and he’s very good.
ICYMI, Kentucky offered Matthew Hurt
There was a lot of news last night (most of the Louisville variety), so you may have missed John Calipari extending a scholarship offer to Matthew Hurt, the fifth-ranked prospect in the 2019 class. Clearly, watching Hurt drop 48 points Tuesday night made an impression. UK has now handed out eight offers in the 2019 class:
- PG: Tyrese Maxey
- G: Bryan Antoine
- SG/SF: Scottie Lewis
- SF: D.J. Jeffries
- SF: Keion Brooks
- PF: Vernon Carey
- PF: James Wiseman
- PF: Matthew Hurt
The Music City Bowl Gift Suite looked awesome
Yesterday, the football team got to choose their bowl gifts from the Music City Bowl gift suite, which included HDTVs, Yeti Coolers, recliners, gaming consoles, and pretty much any cool electronic you can think of:

Which gifts would you have chosen?
Did you see the end of the Wisconsin/Western Kentucky game?
The Hilltoppers would have gone to overtime with Wisconsin if not for this terrible call by officials:

Rick Stansbury had every right to be furious. I’m furious.
The football podcast crew is reuniting this morning to tape a new podcast, and later today, the OTT Podcast crew is tackling yet another bracket to determine the Worst Christmas Song ever. I know you’ve got feelings on this, so feel free to share them in the comments.
ICYMI, new episodes of the Funkhouser Situation and the Free Money podcast dropped yesterday, so refresh that KSR Podcast feed.
Anyone else seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi tonight?
I’m tagging along with my husband and friends to check out the latest installment of the Star Wars series. I’m far from a Star Wars nerd but I enjoyed The Force Awakens, and the people watching should be spectacular. Plus, popcorn.
Shoutout to Brandon for repping KSR on the cliffs of Ireland

I hope you warmed up with a nice pint of Guinness, Brandon.
Radio in an hour. I have a feeling they’ll mention Rick Pitino once or twice.
