Kindly Myers on new Kentucky Hockey poster

The University of Kentucky hockey poster has been a hot item going all the way back to the 1998-99 season when Ashley Judd was the first to pose next to the team’s schedule. The poster has since seen other gorgeous Kentuckians such as actress Rebecca Gayheart, Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, country music star Laura Bell Bundy, and many others who are very easy on the eyes.

A new version of the calendar was unveiled today and it features Kindly Myers, an extremely popular bikini model and fan of the Wildcats, in the UK hockey jersey.

Posters will be available for sale at home games and will eventually be for sale online. They are $10 unsigned or $25 for a signed copy.

To celebrate the release of the new calendar, here are some of the many other times Kindly has represented UK:

Stoops: “We’re a better team this year than we’ve ever been”

Mark Stoops made a special guest appearance on Kentucky Sports Radio during a break in Week 3 of his team’s fall football camp.

As always, Stoops was very candid and transparent to the show in his comments; although, he did not reveal any new information as to who the starting quarterback will be in 11 days. (Sorry.) He did, however, say, “I’ve thought about it, but I haven’t made a decision on it as far as when and how I’ll make that public.”

Stoops also raved about his team’s veteran leadership in a year that, for the first time, the best players are also its best leaders.

“We’ve been more consistent,” Stoops told the show. “I’ve been impressed; in particular, some of those guys on the offensive side of the ball with Benny, CJ and all the O linemen. All those guys are leaders and want to do the right thing all of the time, so they’ve been impressive. Same with the quarterbacks.”

Overall, he sees his best football team since he’s been at the University of Kentucky. But only time will tell if his best roster will translate to the Cats’ best record in his six seasons in Lexington.

Without a doubt, we’re a stronger football team this year,” Stoops said, proudly. “Whether we play better or whether we win those games, that’s why we play them. But we’re a better team this year than we’ve ever been. And as I say all the time, we should be. How it translates to wins and losses, that’s why we gotta go play because I can’t just say that.

“We have a great opportunity. I like this football team. But until you go play, you don’t know exactly what we have.”

11 days until we see it on the field.

Ashtan Pierre Joins the Kentucky Football Team

The Kentucky football team will open the academic school year with an unexpected addition.

UK announced outside linebacker Ashtan Pierre has arrived on campus and will enroll in classes this fall.  Pierre will practice with the team, but will not play as a redshirt.

A three-star recruit from Pompano Beach, Florida, Pierre initially chose Kentucky over Oklahoma and others.  Mark Stoops announced at SEC Media Days that he did not expect Pierre on campus this fall due to an academic situation, but those plans have apparently changed.


UK holding mascot tryouts on Thursday

If you grew up wanting to be a Wildcat, now’s your chance.

UK is hosting mascot tryouts this Thursday, August 23, in the gymnastics room at the Seaton Center on campus. Students interested in trying out will need to show up in athletic clothes with an unofficial transcript in hand for the 5 p.m. tryout.

It may not be that childhood dream of sinking a three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Louisville in Rupp Arena, but let’s be honest: you were never good at basketball and this is your only shot at running out onto the Rupp Arena floor in front of 22,000 fans. So give it a try if you think you’re qualified.

Washed up adults who aren’t students at UK, this isn’t for you. Sorry.

Go Cats.
