Football time in the Bluegrass

It was once said (I believe by Millard Fillmore), that there are two major sports in the SEC, football and spring football. At Kentucky however, we have never really experienced this phenomenon as most Kentucky fans would have enough difficulty dealing with the on-field product during the regular season and would rather watch Basic Instinct 2 than sit through Spring Practice.

But this year is different. There is a new sense of optimism in the air. Spring has sprung and many believe it is a new era for the UK football gridiron. We here at Kentucky Sports Radio hope to quench those of you that have a football thirst in the coming weeks with a little Spring Football coverage. Rob will be a regular at the football practices, and I may even attend one or two, just to see what I can see. In the mean time, here is the Spring Roster….compiled by our man Gidel. Look around….there is a Blake Bowling to be found….
