CSL Plasma presents, Today on KSR: The NFL Returns

A message from our sponsor:

Thanks to all who participated in KSR Plasma Donation Day. During these unprecedented times, the need for plasma donations is even more important so we decided to continue with KSR Plasma Donation Month. Our friends at CSL Plasma know the power of KSR fans and are asking you to spread the word. 

Plasma-derived therapies help people live healthier lives.  They are used around the world to treat bleeding disorders, primary immune deficiencies, used in cardiac surgery, organ transplantation, burn treatment and more!

New Donors earn $60 per donation for each of their first five donations at most locations.  You can donate two times in a 7 day period and it usually takes under 90 minutes.

CSL Plasma has two locations in Lexington, one in Louisville, two in Cincinnati, and more than 250 around the country. Go to to find a location near you.

CSL Plasma also has a special program for those who have fully recovered from Coronavirus!  Visit and you, a family member(s) or friend may be eligible to become a COVID-19 Plasma Donor.

Head to to find a location near you. For the next month, let’s show CSL Plasma the power of KSR and fill their locations with donors.

Football. Is. Back.

Tonight the National Football League returns to action when Patrick Mahomes and the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs host Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans at Arrowhead Stadium. The first professional football game in the COVID-19 era, Arrowhead will only be open at 25 percent capacity for this AFC Divisional Round rematch.

There’s a familiar face suiting up for Houston tonight. Randall Cobb will be making his debut for the Texans, wearing No. 18 in the slot. His NFL career began on this same stage nine years ago and he made the most of the opportunity.

The best place to watch all of the action is at KSBar and Grille. You need to be there for kickoff because Chiefs-Texans isn’t the only game happening Thursday night. The Miami Hurricanes will host UAB at 8 pm on ESPN as the first Power Five college football game of the year. Make all the jokes about Miami fans as you please, but it should be exciting to see the highly anticipated debut of grad transfer quarterback D’Eriq King.

It’s going to be a great night for sports fans because that’s not all we have to watch.

Lakers seek 3-1 lead

Anthony Davis and LeBron James can get one step closer to ending all hopes for the Houston Rockets. Up 2-1 in the Western Conference semifinals, a win by the Lakers tonight would get LA one step closer to bringing home the Larry O’Brien trophy for the Black Mamba. Tip-off is set for 7 pm on TNT.

More Football Podcasts

In addition to your regularly scheduled weekly football podcasts, this week the Matt Jones Podcast had a Sunday NFL Countdown flavor as his former co-hosts Myron Medcalf and Geoff Schwartz joined the program to preview the 2020 NFL season. If you need picks to make some money this weekend, Drew Franklin and Matt Jones previewed college football and NFL games on the Free Money podcast. We dug into the nitty gritty of college football’s week two on 11 Personnel and this morning Freddie Maggard will be back for another Depth Chart Podcast.

An All-Inclusive NCAA Tournament?

The ACC is not proposing an all you can eat and drink event. The conference’s solution to a problem created by COVID-19 is the biggest NCAA Tournament field ever by including all 346 eligible teams for this year’s edition of March Madness. They’re really taking madness to a whole new level with this proposition.

Battle 4 Atlantis won’t be in Atlantis

Instead of going to the Bahamas to play in a Thanksgiving basketball tournament, CBS’s Matt Norlander reports the preferred destination for the event is Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I can’t think of two places that are less alike than Nassau and Sioux Falls.

Wildcats Return to Practice

There are still two more Saturdays without Kentucky football. In the meantime the depth chart is taking shape during preseason practice. Tonight we’ll talk a little defense with Brad White. Until then, enjoy this conversation with tight end Keaton Upshaw.

Who up Logan County?

KSR’s county spotlight is going to the Southwestern part of the state on this lovely Thursday morning. Bring you popcorn and enjoy two hours of entertaining radio.
