Happy Festivus Eve, friends! By now, hopefully you’ve aired your grievances in comments section (don’t hold back! We’re too close for that!) and have moved on to feats of strength (Andrew Cassady and Richmond, can you guys back me up with some KSR Wrassle Talk here?) in anticipation of the great Festivus miracle (the KSR site redesign! It’s coming! Someday…). Take a break from raising the Festivus pole and read what our KSR College writers have been up to the past few days.
–Today’s basketball news, pre-Marshall game, via Andrew McCarthy.
-JC’s fun facts make a Christmas comeback! What ESPN commentator and former coach is getting coal in his stocking?
-I am unabashedly devoted to year-in-review lists, and thankfully, JC came through with a Big Blue Nation year-in-review. I only wish she had included a “Best of Not Jerry Tipton Tweets” section, but there’s always next year.
-With Za’Darius Smith’s recent commitment to UK football, Andrew Cassady combed through the archives to find the best names in Kentucky football history. The last one will leave you wanting more…
-What’s it like for a Kentucky native to play in Rupp Arena… as Kentucky’s opponent? Tara Bilby discusses this in her post “Welcoming Kentucky Natives Home.”
-And finally, we’ve heard about Marquis Teague’s supportive phone call to Ryan Harrow. My favorite thing about Teague’s call? How it exemplifies Calipari’s “La Familia” mindset.
