— We’re just a little under six hours away from the Alabama game but the big news of the day is Kentucky’s new one-game-only jersey from Nike. Like we saw last year for the home game against Tennessee, Nike will fit the Kentucky team with a new unique look, this time for the game at Florida on February 12. 10 other men’s and women’s team will wear similar styles at some point this season.
Early chatter froms fans is that they look too much like practice jerseys. Your thoughts?

— It’s time for your UK Joke O’ The Day… “Knock-knock. Who’s there? Rick Minter. Rick Minter, who? Rick Minter will coach for the Philadelphia Eagles next season. Get the hell off my front porch.” It’s true, folks. Reports out of Philly are saying Rick Minter is expected to coach the Eagles’ linebackers. We heard the rumors a few days ago but it took a little while to sink in. It will be Minter’s first season coaching in the NFL.
— Manti Te’o’s dead, non-existent girlfriend sent a tweet to Peyton Siva during the NCAA Tournament last season. According to the collection of tweets on Deadspin, Lennay Kekua tweeted, “@PeypeySiva3 When you comin to Ca bruh? I saw your pops end of last year.” Siva did not respond because he was busy getting ready to lose to Kentucky for a fourth time.
