University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

LIVE BLOG Coming, Getcha’ Popcorn Ready

The time is nearly upon us.  The college basketball game of the season is right around the corner at noon, and the state of Kentucky is anxiously awaits.  I feel the excitement buzzing all around, don’t you?  We haven’t had the privilege of seeing a game as wrought with talent in decades.  The stakes may not be as high as last year’s Elite Eight matchup, but the level of play and talent is outrageous.  The KSR crew who made it to the game, plus others, will be joining us on the Live Blog in just a few minutes.  Here are a few pregame notes before it get’s underway:

– Matt tweeted that Darius is focused and came out way early to warm up.  If Miller comes out of the gates firing, UK could pull away early.  His contribution on the offensive end will be a key factor today, especially from beyond the arc.

– If MKG continues to start, all ten starters will be former McDonald’s All-Americans.  Has this ever happened before?

– In a Pitino-esque turn of events, it looks as if P.J. Hairston is going to give it a go today.  He’s a great shooter, but who knows how effective he will be with that injured wrist.

Tony Greene is officiating today.  That’s unfortunate.

– Several recruits are on campus today to witness the fun – 2014 #1 Andrew Wiggins, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, Derek Willis, and Alex Poythress.  Only one of those is certain to be a Cat at the moment, but the others have plenty of recruitment time left.  Wiggins is phenomenal and would be a great get down the road.

– The line is currently between -5.5 and -6 in favor of the Cats.  Too high?  Too low?  What say you?

LIVE BLOG AT 11:45.  We respectfully request your presence.  Show your face/username.  It’s going to be a lot of fun, unless you’re a Carolina fan.

    Jones and Davis will have a battle with Zeller and Henson. If Teague doesn’t lose his mind, then Miller wins this game for us.

    I’m giving the points. Cats win big. GO BIG BLUE

    It will be a double digit win for whoever wins. Lets hope our Cats come out firing and not playing selfish as they have in the past. Im hoping for a Big Blue celebration!

    Can someone hook me up with a video link to watch the game online? I have to work and would like to watch some of it. If not, I’m quitting early and finding a TV.

    #14 – Did you give Roy and handy today? I hear he swings that way, just say’n. (In the famous words of Seinfeld, “not that there is anything wrong with that.”)

    14. Ole Roy, you forget-it’s not your house. Fans won’t be removed for yelling “miss it” when your players are at the foul line today. That faded blue should match up pretty well with the bruises you will receive today.
