University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

MMTTK: Happy Veterans Day!

Today we honor the many men and women who have served and continue to serve in the United States Armed Forces. We thank them today, and everyday, for fighting for our freedoms. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

UK Football

The Kentucky football team did that thing it does every single year where it loses to Tennessee. I believe it is now 32 losses in the last 34 years, if my memory hasn’t suffered too much damage from the rivalry to keep an accurate count.

This time Kentucky dominated the time of possession (41:37 to 18:23) and rushed for over 300 yards, yet still lost the game, as is tradition.

After the game, Lynn Bowden pulled up his favorite app to call out the fans.

But the majority of the fans’ frustration, if not all of it, is directed toward the adults in the locker room who are getting paid millions of dollars, not the “college kids.”

UK Basketball

Eastern Kentucky brought its fast-paced style of basketball to Lexington on Friday, only to get run out of the arena, 91-49, by your soon-to-be No. 1 Wildcats. It took seven minutes before the Colonels scored their first points in the game, but a late first-half run filled up the scoreboard to keep it somewhat respectable at halftime.

Nick Richards was the star of the game with 21 points and 10 rebounds, his second career double-double; although the real MVP was UK’s defense, again, as Kentucky allowed only 25 percent shooting from the field, its best mark since holding Georgia to 22 percent back in 2016.

Watch KSR’s video recap of the night:


— Josh Allen had the weekend off from his responsibilities with the Jacksonville Jaguars so he was able to attend the UK game in Lexington. We caught up with him on the Cat Walk prior to the game:

— In Pittsburgh, Benny Snell did not play in the Steelers’ win over the Rams. He is out with a knee injury. His UK teammate, Bud Dupree, had four tackles in the victory.

— Randall Cobb had a big game on Sunday Night Football with six catches for 106 yards and a touchdown. However, it was in a losing effort against the Vikings in Dallas.

— Are the Titans back?

Gambling (But not in Kentucky, of course)

The line on Saturday’s game at Vanderbilt opened up with the Cats giving up eight and a half points to the Commodores. The total on the game is 44.

Kentucky is 5-3-1 against the spread this season, according to The total has gone under in six straight games.


Could you do this one?

What’s Ahead

— Coming up at noon, Mark Stoops will hold his usual Monday press conference to look back on Saturday’s game and ahead to the next challenge on the schedule. This week Stoops will be explaining some of his decisions in the deflating loss to Tennessee while previewing the upcoming trip to Nashville to potentially get back in the win column against struggling Vanderbilt.

— Stoops isn’t the only coach answering questions today. John Calipari will also hold a press conference to preview his team’s game against Evansville tomorrow night. Cal is expected to begin his presser around 2 p.m. today. We will have the live stream here on KSR.

— You will get a new KSR Football Podcast tonight. We’re recording it a little earlier than usual so you should get it around dinner time.

— The first rankings of the college basketball season will come out around noon today and Kentucky will almost certainly take over the No. 1 spot from Michigan State in both polls. It’s a spot the Cats should hold for a long time with no real threats on the schedule until late December.

— Tune in to KSR at 10 a.m.!

      Did you read some of the responses to Bowden’s tweet from UT fans? Their fans showed more respect for Bowden than some of our fans, I mean followers.

      That’s because they won and it’s a way (in their little minds) to make the UK fan base look bad. Don’t mistake smugness for class. 😉

      Not excusing the online behavior of some of our “fans” at all, btw.

      I wish those same “fans” would stop for a moment and imagine what this season would be without Lynn Bowden. ?

    It’s not a rivalry when one team loses 32 times in 34 years.

    A great thanks to all vets, past and present.
    As far as Bowden goes, this text went out almost immediately after the game. Up to that point I hadn’t heard anyone give Bowden grief but a LOT of fans rightly giving this staff grief for giving another game away. We’re fortunate to have a guy like Bowden trying to carry the weight of this team. If I were in his shoes after missing a wide open receiver for a certain 6 points and getting intercepted, I’d stay off of the tweet caravan.
