Psst Willie it’s time to wake up! That’s right everyone today’s morning wake up is brought to you by the Sacramento Kings and Willie Cauley-Stein sleeping. I know most people might have lost a year or two off our lives from last night’s game, but let’s get into Sunday.
Set Your Lineups
Just a friendly reminder the first NFL game today kicks off at 9:30 Eastern because the Jets and Dolphins are playing in London. Also a friendly reminder, no one cares about your fantasy team, but set your lineup. Let’s take a quick minute to talk about how dumb it is the NFL plays in London. This counts as a home game for a team each year, taking away true home field advantage and making players get out of their routine. London is a five hour time different from the east coast, so most players will have to take sleeping pills to fall asleep at a normal time.
UK Wasn’t the Only One
Believe it or not but Kentucky wasn’t the only team to struggle yesterday. No. 1 Ohio State had to rally to beat Indiana yesterday while No. 2 Michigan State had to hold off Purdue despite being up 21-0 at halftime. Catch that Big 10 action, folks.
Props to Boom
Look, no one knows why Boom wasn’t playing yesterday, but I do want to give props to Williams for being on the sidelines and celebrating like a little kid with his teammates. He’s sure to catch some heat from the comment section, but Boom did what he was supposed to, which was supporting his team.
