Today on KSR: On the Road to Catlanta

We are one day away from Kentucky’s seventh Sweet 16 appearance in nine years.  As we speak, Mrs. Tyler Thompson and Drew Franklin are on the road to Catlanta.  They’ll be inside Philips Arena at 2:05 when John Calipari and select players take the podium.  Unfortunately, the practice that follows will not be open to the public, but Mrs. T and Drew will let you know what went down.

While they make their way down I-75 South, the team touched down in Georgia yesterday.

Alabama Professors have No Chill

I don’t think anyone would throw this kind of shade at an Alabama football player.  Just saying.

    Anyone notice no Vanderbilt in the practice video?

    Might be able to slide this week without him,

    if we make it to the four we will need him.

    I expect a Kentucky Duke title game, Vando matches perfectly with Bagley

    1. Professors hate being asked how a test is “going to be.” What are they supposed to say? “Easy. You don’t need to study.”

    2. An Alabama football player wouldn’t experience losing the way the basketball team has.
