Today on KSR: Chrome is Back

The Chrome Domes are Back.

Kentucky practiced in the shiny helmets yesterday.  Nothing has been announced, but their presence was all I needed to see.  In previous years the team had at least one day of practice to break in the reflective helmets.

Kentucky has not informed fans if they need to stylize their Saturday night wardrobe a certain way.  A gut feeling tells me the Cats will wear black, but it will not officially be a black out.  South Carolina tried and failed epically in a black out against UK last year, but when UK rocks all-black and chrome against South Carolina, it creates magical moments.

It’s a Sell Out

If you didn’t get your tickets to Kentucky-South Carolina, sorry.  You’re out of luck.  At around 7:00 p.m. Wednesday night UK Athletics announced Saturday night’s game is sold out.  The only tickets remaining can be found on the secondary market.  It’s going to be another amazing night at Kroger Field.

Benny has Finebaum’s Heisman Vote

Paul Finebaum joined Matt Jones on Hey Kentucky! to talk about the Kentucky Wildcats, Benny Snell and how he became the voice of the SEC.

Benny has Skyline’s Heisman Vote

The new Lexington store believes in Benny’s hype.  Snell Yeah.


Enjoy Wildcat Love

The UK Alumni Association helped create a small batch bourbon that correctly predicted the end of The Streak at The Swamp.  Beatty gave Matt Jones a bottle and Mark Stoops received a bottle from Dr. Mike after the game.  Now you can get your own bottle of Wildcat Love.

There are still about 200 bottles left, and proceeds help fund the scholarship endowment of the Alumni Club to allow deserving local students to attend UK.  Wildcat Love bottles are $100 and are only available for sale in person at Barrel House Distilling Co. in Lexington Wednesdays-Sundays 11am to 5pm at 1200 Manchester Street.

Thursday Night Football

The NFL is (finally) back on multiple platforms for Thursday Night Football.  The Rams and the Vikings can be seen on Fox, the NFL Network and Amazon Prime.  Kickoff is set for 8:20.

You can pregame the matchup between a pair of potential playoff teams with $1 beers at Churchill Downs or college football between North Carolina and Miami at 8:00 on ESPN.

Really, Ohio State?

I’ll take “What is tone deaf?” for $500.

    I had a shot of WILDCAT LOVE before I
    flew to Florida for the game. It’s a spicy rye
    Bourbon with flavor notes of cinnamon,
    brown sugar, caramel, & smoky oak. It’s
    the only commemorative bourbon bottle
    released before the season even started
    and it correctly predicted the end of the
    streak against Florida!

    Ohio State, challenging U of L for least self aware college sports program on the planet.

      In the case of The Ohio State University, I would almost chalk it up to extreme arrogance.

    I try not to overreact to political correctness type things but the OSU post is complete and utter stupidity. They’re doubling down on their ignorance and myopic stance. Man I’d love to see them get destroyed a few games this season.

    Just a thought if your chasing a receiver and watching the chrome helmet can you see the ball coming in so it’s beneficial in timing for the defense?

      I’m not sure if it would be that clear of a reflection. Lol interesting thought though.

      Do you see in the pic with Benny tossing the football up, the ball can be seen in the helmet perfectly. Might even enlarge the field of view on the side of the helmet bc it’s curved! It may only matter on a play or 2 bc no one is going to just stare into mirrored helmets. It may not be an issue but maybe one time it gives someone an advantage and if that’s the case make it blue chrome ,at least it will be darker and not so vivid. I like the helmet but I don’t want to give someone any advantage. That’s part of the game is to take advantage of any weaknesses. Is the chrome helmet a weakness? Hell maybe it blinds defenders bc it’s so bright! Go cats! Bbn!

    The practice jerseys look better than the game ones

    You are aware they no longer use black as an alternate uniform, right? If they wear the chrome helmets, my guess would be gray pants and blue jerseys.

    Why in hell would you EVER wear the other teams colors as your home uniform? Idiocy at it’s best!!
