Ivy League won’t play Sports this Fall 

Wednesday evening Ivy League schools learned they will not be playing sports this fall. Coronavirus will shutter athletic venues in the Ivy League until Jan. 1. If the New Year brings good news, there’s potential for a spring football season, giving optimists something to hang onto in the middle of a day that was filled with more positive COVID-19 tests on campuses across the country. Ohio State and North Carolina each suspended voluntary workouts as Power Five conference officials grow more concerned that the college football season will not start on time.

New COVID-19 Restrictions Coming to Kentucky

On Wednesday Andy Beshear announced six more deaths and 409 more positive coronavirus cases. In lieu of the rising numbers, the Governor said this afternoon he will announce new mandatory measures to prevent further spread of the virus in the Commonwealth.

The Big Blue Wall is the Best

It had been four days since PFF released a new graphic praising the University of Kentucky football team. The Big Blue Wall was due for a shout out.

TBT is Great 

Sports are all the way back. Sure, it’s a different version of the basketball we know and love, but it’s still basketball and so far it’s produced a few high quality moments. Yesterday the defending champs and No. 1 overall seed, Ohio State alumni tabbed as Carmen’s Crew, lost their first game in TBT to the House of Paign. The Illinois alumni team got plenty of help from Mike Daum, who sent the Buckeyes packing as Aaron Craft flopped all over the floor. A reenactment of Craft’s Wednesday:

There are two games this afternoon on ESPN, beginning at 2 p.m. ET with Kyle Wiltjer’s Money Team taking on the Marshall alumni team, Herd That, followed by Armored Athlete vs. Overseas Elite at 4 p.m. ET.

Who up, Greenup? 

KSR’s county spotlight is heading northeast to the home of Jesse Stuart and Billy Ray Cyrus. If you miss it you’ll break our achy break hearts.

    UNC and Ohio State are just the beginning. The shutdowns did nothing and now we’re stuck with this bug for at least 4 months longer than we should have been. Heads should roll over this.

      The blocking of our TE’s and WR’s is way underrated, but yes I agree.
