Good morning, Wildcat friends. Like many of you, I’m coming off a nice weekend at the lake, in my case, Center Hill Lake in Tennessee. If you haven’t been yet, I encourage you to visit. It’s wonderful. After four hours of sleep, I was able to disconnect from the internet for an impressive 12 or so hours. Probably less. (Definitely less.) There’s even a bar on the lake that’s owned by the same people who own Tootsie’s in Nashville. No, Kindly doesn’t work there.
Meanwhile, many thanks to Drew for manning the ship. Things certainly kept rolling in the Bluegrass, so let’s go over today’s agenda…
Ryan Flannigan watch continues
Monday’s press conference came and went without an update on UK’s starting linebacker, and the Cats will certainly need him if they have a chance of upsetting the Gamecocks in South Carolina on Saturday. Cross your fingers and hope for a positive update when the coaches address the media today after practice.
Will the UK/South Carolina line move anymore?
South Carolina opened as a 9-point favorite, but the line quickly moved to 7.5 on Monday. Right now, it’s 7 at certain sports books.
We’re going to do this a lot in the coming days, but what’s your prediction? I’ve got Gamecocks by 3, but I really hope I’m wrong.
Coach Cal will talk to the media about the Hall of Fame Enshrinement
We may be in football mode, but one of the big storylines this week will be John Calipari’s enshrinement into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. That goes down on Friday, and today, Calipari will talk to the local media about it. We’ll have a live stream and a complete break down for you basketball nuts. Football friends, it’s okay. We can multitask.
This video of Bobby Petrino won’t get old soon:
I’d be lying if I said Lamar Jackson didn’t worry me, but here’s hoping Bobby makes that face all season, especially on November 28. I’d also be lying if I said I didn’t have the same face when I watched Patrick Towles in the 2nd half Saturday. Let’s fix that before Saturday’s trip to Columbia, please.
I ended up watching “90’s: The Last Great Decade” and it was awesome
Anyone who has ridden in my car knows I’m a huge fan of the 90’s. It’s clearly the best decade, and I celebrate it by keeping my satellite radio set to 90’s on 9. Therefore, when we got back from the lake yesterday, I fell easily into a marathon of “90’s: The Last Great Decade” on the National Geographic Channel. Did you know the Macarena paved the way for J.Lo and Ricky Martin in America? Me neither. That’s definitely a low-brow review of the series, which includes interviews with 90’s icons like Monica Lewinsky, Vanilla Ice, Ice Cube, etc. It’s also narrated by Rob Lowe, who sounds just as good as he looks. Check it out the next time you want to binge.
Not even a football game could keep JC Coleman from showing off his watch
The Virginia Tech running back has apparently worn a watch during games going back to his junior year to remind himself “it’s my time.” That would have come in real handy when the play clock and game clock went out on Saturday.
KSR is back in one hour
On a long morning after a long holiday weekend, could you ask for anything more?
