Snow does a lot of things to people. They forget how to drive, they crave bread and milk, and they insist on posting terrible things to social media. I don’t know what I’ll do if I have to see one more ruler shoved into the snow. Lucky for me, there was Snow Baby to keep thing interesting. Thanks for the reports Snow Baby!
It has stopped snowing in Lexington. UK announced yesterday the 4:00 game against Vanderbilt will go on as planned, advising fans to take caution when traveling to Rupp. An unofficial early morning road report from my roommate is that the main roads are fine, just take it easy on the side streets. However, not all of the roads are friendly to motorists, just ask those stranded on I-75 yesterday.

The storm is even more brutal on the East Coast, stranding the Duquesne men’s basketball team for more than 12 hours overnight. At least they’re finding a way to have fun.

I Don’t Want to Move On from the Arkansas Game
It was so refreshing to see this team play so well together. There’s not much bad you can take away from the game, other than the foul trouble from Poythress and Lee, yet we have less than 48 hours to enjoy it.
To make matters worse, today’s game will be a tough one. Vandy has the three-point shooters to provide plenty of scoring, along with two of the best post players the Cats have seen all year, 7-footers Damian Jones and Luke Kornet. The Cats are a 6-point favorite, but a win over the Commodores will not come easy.
Mark Jones and Dick Vitale will have the call at 4:00 on ESPN.
Stoops has Important Official Visitors in Town
With only one or two spots to fill for the 2016 Class, he’s trying to seal the deal this weekend. The two visitors to keep an eye on — Alabama athlete Tadarryl Marshall and Juco defensive tackle J.J. Holmes. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll go sledding with them like Dabo Swinney.

Drew Franklin is Back from Vacation
After a week of vacationing, everyone’s
least favorite KSR writer will allegedly make his return to the blog life today at Rupp Arena. Sources tell KSR that instead of an automobile, he’ll be arriving to Rupp via sled dog team.
Dave Ragone is the Bears’ New QB Coach
I’m sure that will go over well. It doesn’t matter if I have a little disdain for the former UofL quarterback, I pity any person that is forced to coach Jay Cutler. It’ll be a tough task for Ragone. I’ve heard on a few occasions from an expert that he “sucks.”
Dave Blatt was Fired
The “Calipari to the Cavs” rumors were going to be spectacular Snow Day paranoia, until Woj reported eight minutes later that he would be replaced by one of the Cavs’ assistant coaches. See BBN, don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright.
