The LIVE KSR Football Podcast TaxSlayer Bowl Preview Extravaganza

One week away from the TaxSlayer Bowl, the KSR Football Podcast is here to preview the matchup with Georgia Tech in our first ever LIVE remote from the Original Brooklyn Pizza in Lexington.

Three hours before the show, Freddie Tweeted, “What could go wrong?”  That meant something would inevitably go wrong: I locked my keys in my car 45 minutes before show time.  With the delay brought a few technical difficulties and for that, I apologize.  Regardless, you should enjoy the shenanigans while we attempt to eat a 40-inch pizza during the 90 minute podcast.  A few highlights from the show:

—  A biology lesson from Freddie, analogizing the triple option to an amoeba.

—  Drew loses in Keno.

—  Things to do while in Jacksonville.

—  Why UK must pass the ball well to beat Georgia Tech.

—  A big thank you to all who joined us; hopefully it’s the first of many.
