A message from our friends at Lextran:
Heading to the game? Hop on the Lextran football shuttle to Kroger Field! Lextran operates shuttle service during every UK home football game from downtown and campus. The service begins three hours prior to kick-off and runs for 30 minutes after the start of the game. Shuttle will pick back up at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Pay $1 each way onboard the bus. Please have exact change! Further details can be found at www.lextran.com!
The Missouri game is almost here
It’s homecoming weekend, and the Missouri Tigers are on their way to town. Given Mizzou’s struggles on defense, confidence should be high amongst Kentucky fans, but last weekend’s lackluster win over Eastern Michigan has some a wee bit worried about the Tigers, who are coming off a bye week. Kentucky opened as a 14.5-point favorite, but it’s been bet down to 9.5. Can the Cats finally get the BIG win we’ve all been waiting for? That remains to be seen, but this hype video has me ready:

Considering the explosive freshman has yet to have a negative play in blue and white, lets give him what he wants, okay?
More UK Basketball Player Previews
We’ll be wrapping up our 2017-18 previews today with Brad Calipari and Tai Wynyard. If you’ve missed any of them along the way, catch up below:
No UNC report today after all
Turns out the NCAA’s final report on UNC won’t come out today after all due to “scheduling circumstances.” We now look to Fake Barney for a live reaction:
It’s okay, Barnes. You can still make fun of the fact that, while awaiting word on their own scandal, the Tar Heels accepted a commitment from Nassir Little, one of the recruits tied to the college basketball bribery scandal. It only makes sense!
I’ll catch you up on the latest recruiting developments
The recruiting landscape is never stable, but there have been several interesting developments regarding Kentucky’s 2018 class this week. I’ll sum them all up for you later this afternoon.

Can you believe Madness is in a week? Me neither.
Hey, did Louisville win last night?
Nope! Not only that, they gave up a touchdown to NC State with only 10 players on the field:
And Lamar Jackson sealed the win for NC State with this pick six:
A pick-6 of the Heisman winner?
What a way for No. 24 NC State to seal a victory over Lamar Jackson and No. 17 Louisville. pic.twitter.com/1svOlzzGZm

Shoutout to NC State fans for that “FBI” chant, nice coarse salt in a fresh wound. Anyone feel sorry for the Cards yet? (The answer is no.)
