    I have never understood why we have never hosted them in basketball. We have hosted all other in-state OVC schools. Are we that terrified of Murray State?

      They want a home and home, and we are not going to Murray State because there’s no money in it.

    How is this even worth typing an article? You could tell me UK was going to play my coed flag football team in 2022, and I STILL think it would be too early for anyone to care.
