Got plans for July 4th yet? Me too. In addition to keeping an eye on KSR for Kash Daniel’s announcement, set your DVRs to record the SEC Network because John Calipari and Mark Stoops will be in charge as part of the “SEC Network Takeover” initiative. For all 24 hours of Independence Day, the SEC Network will air Kentucky’s classic games, films, ESPN original content, etc. Cal and Stoops will pop in from time to time to say hello and tweet from the SEC Network’s account.
One would assume all of their segments will be pre-taped, but I sort of hope they’re not, because a live look-in at the Stoops and Calipari Fourth of July festivities would be more entertaining than anything. Picture it now: Cal just sitting and eating plate after plate of meat while Stoops and the football staff play a raucous game of Yahtzee to celebrate Kash Daniel’s commitment. TV gold, folks.
Here are the rest of the league’s takeover days and representatives:
|Alabama||Mark Ingram||June 29|
|Arkansas||Coach Dykes||June 30|
|Auburn||Coach Pearl||July 1|
|Florida||Titus O’Neil||July 2|
|Georgia||D.J. Shockley||July 3|
|Kentucky||Coach Calipari & Coach Stoops||July 4|
|LSU||Alex Bregman||July 5|
|Mississippi State||Dak Prescott & Coach Mullen||July 6|
|Missouri||John Anderson||July 7|
|Ole Miss||Leigh Anne Tuohy||July 8|
|South Carolina||President Pastides & Ray Tanner||July 9|
|Tennessee||Inky Johnson||July 10|
|Texas A&M||Kayce Smith||July 11|
|Vanderbilt||David Price||July 12|
It is kind of ridiculous that Kentucky drew the one day no one will be around their TVs, but oh well.
