— Good afternoon, friends and UK haters who have nothing better to do than leave negative comments under every post on KSR. How are you? Still excited about football? That’s great, but let’s not forget we’re in the middle of conference play in basketball season. The Cats will open its friendly Rupp Arena doors on Saturday for the Auburn Tigers, a team Kentucky defeated quite handily on the road a couple weeks ago. Big Blue Nation hopes to see another dominating home performance from the Wildcats, similar to the one we saw Tuesday night against South Carolina. Win big against the Tigers and then we see how this team really measures up, when they take on the Florida Gators next week. That game could work wonders for UK’s seed in the NCAA Tournament if the Cats are able to get a W.
— Kentucky and Ole Miss are tied for second place in the SEC with two losses apiece. In related news, I can’t wait for the SEC Tournament in Nashville.
— Ken Pomeroy recently updated his KenPom rankings and Kentucky is still sitting comfortably at No. 17. Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Michigan, and Duke make up the top five, respectively. For Kentucky to crack the top 25 in the two polls that don’t use nonsensical mathematics, the Cats will need to win at Florida or keep it at close at Florida and then win the next three games: @ Tennessee, vs. Vanderbilt, and vs. Missouri after College Gameday. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see a ranking next to Kentucky’s name on the ESPN scoreboard during games. Being unranked is getting old.

Thank you. I have no further questions.
— Mark Stoops has a big weekend ahead of him for Kentucky football recruiting and I’m not just talking about Tevin Lawson. There is a big group of 2014 standouts scheduled to visit Lexington, proving Stoops meant business when he said he’s going after everyone. Gone are the days of ignoring four and five-stars players because we’re Kentucky. Stoops and his staff are pursuing future stars.
