Football season is almost here. At this time next week, Kentucky football fans will be able to meet players and watch an open practice at Fan Day. We’re so close to football, I can almost hear the pads popping.
Even though we’re close to practice, it’s incomparable to a gameday at Kroger Field. There are still four more Saturdays, 35 days total, until Kentucky opens the season against Central Michigan. It can’t get here quick enough. Luckily, there’s enough going on today to help pass the time, like…

Unfortunately, you can’t get these on your walls for another week. Your patience will pay off when they hit Kroger stores August 4. They’ll also be available at UK Fan Day.
Mike Edwards, Josh Allen and C.J. Conrad get an entire poster to themselves. Benny Snell is the team’s biggest star, but he can’t break records without his offensive line, an invaluable unit that rarely gets the credit they deserve. This ode to the “Big Blue Wall” is a nice start.
