Good morning! Drew here, reporting live from KSBar and Grille for the day. We’re welding the foundation of the KSR office upstairs and making major moves in the restaurant downstairs, and I’m running Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com all day while helping out with both. (Busy, busy day for me.)
So join me in a little morning UK/KSR talk on this lovely Tuesday…
39 days until football season!
942 hours until the first kickoff of 2018 in Kroger Field, to be exact. How many games do you have the Cats winning in the regular season?
Here’s the schedule:
vs. Central Michigan
vs. Murray State
vs. Mississippi State
vs. South Carolina
@ Texas A&M
vs. Middle Tennessee State
In case you missed it…
— T.J.’s notes were especially thorough yesterday, so take a second to read everything here if you haven’t already. Lots of good stuff in the middle of recruiting season.
— Dakari Johnson was traded to Memphis from Orlando, two days after he was traded to Orlando from Oklahoma City. Andrew Harrison and Dakari Johnson, together again.
— Jared Lorenzen opened up to the Kentucky Roll Call about his new E:60. As of yesterday, he still hadn’t seen it all the way through. Read more here.
You need to be watching “Last Chance U.”
I’m only one episode in, but I plan to catch up tonight or tomorrow. Word is Terry Wilson has a major cameo in the third episode and Matt has asked we all watch as much as we can before it’s discussed on KSR next week.
We’re accepting applications at KSBar and Grille.
Stop by 1030 Broadway today, tomorrow, the next day, the day after that, or even next week to pick up an application for all of our hourly positions.
We have a fresh stack of applications waiting for potential hourly employees. We’ll only be here until about 7:00 pm today, but you have all week to get one. pic.twitter.com/Asshc3dP8E

And if you’re not doing it already, you should be following KSBar on Twitter and liking it on Facebook.
Oh, and one more thing: This week’s “Ask Anything Mailbox” is only about the bar, so send any questions you want answered to me at @DrewFranklinKSR on Twitter or to [email protected] Gracias.
KSR to take over Finebaum again later this week.
Matt Jones is filling in for Paul Finebaum once again this week as Pawwwl sits out Thursday and Friday. Matt will have Tony Vanetti in studio with him during Thursday’s show and I’ll be in to help out on Friday. Maybe we’ll play “Saban or Hillary?” again?
The KSR Summer Tour is in Benton today.
Matt, Ryan and Shannon are at the world’s nicest bank, CFSB Bank, for two wonderful hours of Kentucky Sports Radio radio.
