Sunday’s morning wake up is brought to you by the only fitting movie title. Groundhog Day. I, much like everyone else here, probably woke up feeling the same way from a year ago regarding the football team. High expectations after some perceived early season wins, playing Florida tough but ultimately losing and then collapsing against Louisville. Rinse, wash, repeat.
Let’s take a look at some happier things though.
There are special players joining the basketball program next year
I know it’s weird to already say that considering the season is less than a month old and Kentucky is still No. 1 in the country. But, De’Aaron Fox played in the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in Texas and put on a show against Andrew Jones – another top guard prospect. Fox put up 31 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. The highlight though may have been when he went coast to coast and finished while adjusting in the air, in all under four seconds. Oh, and Malik Monk scored 46 in a win too. Those two are going to be a ton of fun to watch next year.
LSU Decides to keep Les Miles
In a bizarre week for LSU, rumors were the Tigers were going to relieve Les Miles of his duties, leading one of the best coaches in the game looking for a job. Well, after beating Texas A&M last night, it was announced that Miles would be keeping his job at LSU. This obviously means a ton for the conference, even if the Cats only see LSU about twice a decade, just to keep a big name like that at one of the more prestigious football jobs in the country is national news. The boosters need to get Miles the finest grass to eat for dinner tonight now.
The Guys Survived Day One
After the game, Drew, Matt, Shannon and Ryan hit the road for the KSR Does America roadtrip and it seems like they survived day one. Follow the guys on Twitter for the constant updates, complaining, questioning and all-around tomfoolery that makes this site great.
