Mark Stoops will preview the season on the SEC Coaches Teleconference
Today is the first SEC Coaches Teleconference of the season, which means Mark Stoops and the league’s coaches will chat with their favorite reporters for ten minutes each around lunchtime. With Nick Roush on the road, I’ll be tuned in to hear if there are any updates on Kentucky’s preparations for Southern Miss and also to see if I can understand anything Ed Orgeron says.
Not enough updates for you? Defensive coordinator Matt House will address reporters following UK’s practice tonight, so stay tuned.
The KSR Crew leaves for Hattiesburg
After today’s show, Matt, Ryan, Nick Roush, and Perrin Johnson will pile into the ole KSR mobile and head south towards Hattiesburg for Saturday’s season opener. That’s a ways away, so they’ll stop in Birmingham tonight, so if you’re in the area, give them recs. I’ve already made Nick Roush well aware of the best beer in the world, Good People IPA, whose taproom is right downtown.
Today’s “Something Good”: Animals being rescued from Hurricane Harvey flooding
By now you’ve seen countless videos and pictures of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which crippled Houston and southeast Texas. Over the last five days, Houston has received almost 50″ of rain, which is more than our area averages in an entire year. The damage is devastating, but the stories of people teaming up to rescue others are inspiring. As an animal lover, the footage of people rescuing pets affects me most, and this compilation from TIME will hit you right in the feels:

If you missed it in the post below this one, last night, John Calipari announced that Kentucky Basketball will host a disaster-relief telethon with WKYT on Sunday to raise money for Harvey victims. We should find out more details in the coming days. Houston native and current Memphis Grizzly Andrew Harrison also issued a plea for donations on behalf of the American Red Cross:
