2:58 p.m. — What’s up, KSR readers? In an attempt to give KSR readers the most in-depth coverage of Drew Barker’s announcement, we sent Drew Franklin and Nick Roush up to Hebron, Kentucky, only for them to be told they can’t use the school’s wi-fi. So, you’re stuck with me and this awesome WKYT live stream. Drew and Nick will be texting me updates periodically, but until then, let’s spend the next thirty minutes speculating. Be sure to refresh often.
2:59 p.m. — Drew texts that he and Nick sat in the car for 20 minutes while school let out and felt really creepy. Also, he wants some rectangular pizza and corn.
See, they really are front and center:
3:02 p.m. — Here’s today’s schedule of events, from Drew:
Also, he says Alan Cutler just explained how the rain falls in Seattle. Hard hitting behind the scenes info, here.
3:07 p.m. — I can see the top of Nick Roush’s hat.
3:08 p.m. — Anyone else freak out a little bit when they cleaned the camera lens? I’m going to dare Drew and Nick to stand up and do something funny.
3:13 p.m. — Five minutes later, they still haven’t responded to my dare. Wimps.
3:15 p.m. — I bet these highlights would be really cool if we could see them.
3:17 p.m. — Hi Jan.
3:18 p.m. — CUTLER!
3:20 p.m. — The fact that Cutler decided to stand right in front of the camera to check his phone is not a coincidence.
3:22 p.m. — Come on, Cutler. Wave at us.
3:25 p.m. — There’s BARKER! Not liking the red tie….
3:26 p.m. — Barker’s dad speaking, wearing a maroon-checked shirt. Drew looks like he’s about to throw up. I would be too if I was about to announce I was going to South Carolina in front of a crowd of UK fans.
3:29 p.m. — Here we go…
3:30 p.m. — Barker thanking friends, family and God.
3:31 p.m. — BARKER PICKS KENTUCKY! BARKER PICKS KENTUCKY!
3:36 p.m. — Barker is about to do a radio interview with 100.3 the Fan. Listen here.
