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

The team is still in Missouri

Once he learned his team had to spend another night in Missouri due to inclement weather, John Calipari said he hoped the team plane would be able to depart before noon, in order to have his team back in Lexington by 2 p.m.

Well, 2 p.m. is almost here and the team is still in Columbia, awaiting the green light to fly back home. I can’t imagine Cal and his coaches, players and staff members are a happy bunch right now.

Normally the team’s travel complications wouldn’t affect our daily lives, but today it kind of does because the longer it takes UK to get home, the longer it takes Reid Travis to get his MRI. And the longer it takes Reid Travis to get his MRI, the longer it will be before we hear any news, good or bad. And that’s not good for our eager hearts.

Now who has an in with air traffic control in or around Columbia Regional Airport?

    Hope Cal’s staff found a way to get the team productive during this unexpected down time – tutors, therapy, workout space, etc. Those thangs can go a long ways toward making certain that travel delays have no lingering effects.

    Ummmm, why can’t they just charter a bus? Probably could have left out this morning and would have been back already.

    I’ve flown into that airport. It’s a tiny airport that’s like a ghost town. My guess is they don’t even have equipment to clean that runway
