Today’s KSR Fan of the Day gets around. You can see him pictured with Matt Jones at the Nike Outlet, as a baby with Rick Pitino, and he’s also met Coach Cal. How could we say no to his Fan of the Day request???
Let’s get him, and you, some notes and a podcast…
— The football team is on its way to Gainesville for the first SEC game of the season to face the 3-0 Gators. Taylor Wyndham and Jonathan George will be game captains for the Cats when they enter The Swamp tomorrow as 23-point underdogs.
Kickoff is set for 12:21 ET and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.
— The Courier-Journal’s Kyle Tucker has a story on Kentucky safety Dakotah Tyler and how he delivered Jimmy Johns during his time away from football last season. Tyler said, “Every day when I was driving around delivering … that’s what I was thinking about: Do I want to get back and work hard or do I want to just deliver subs for the rest of my life?”
— Coach Antigua tweeted this new sign in the UK basketball facility of the team’s goal for the 2012-13 season:
Time to get 9.
— Coach Cal won’t be alone when he visits Rashad Vaughn today. Rick Pitino is also scheduled to see the No. 2 shooting guard in the 2014 class. Pitino has already offered Vaughn; Calipari has not.
— If you’re at the campout later today, I will be taking photos and doing interviews for the website, so find me if you want to be on KSR. And if you get hungry, I’m going to copy off the basketball team and pass out Mancino’s pizzas to the campers this evening. I don’t know what time we’ll have the pizzas ready but it’ll be around 6:30 or 7:00. I’ll tweet the details when I get them.
— Today’s podcast comes to you live from Fan Outfitters in Louisville. Enjoy…
