Set your DVR.
PJ Washington is finally able to practice.
Kentucky has been without its best returning player, PJ Washington, since the team began working out and practicing last month. Washington was sidelined with his pinky finger in a cast following offseason surgery to repair an injury he suffered last season.
But now Washington is back on the court to make up for lost time as the team’s trip to the Bahamas gets closer and closer.
SEC Media Days continue.
8:30 a.m. – 8:40 a.m.: David Fletcher, Football Bowl Association
8:40 a.m. – 8:55 a.m.: Bill Hancock, Executive Director College Football Playoff
9 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.: Mississippi State and Tennessee
1:30 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.: Alabama and Missouri
Walmart’s Twitter account clapped back at a Tennessee fan.
Did you see Dan Mullen’s shoes at SEC Media Days yesterday? He wore a custom-made Florida Gators pair of the Levi’s x Jordan 4s.
Well, a popular UT Twitter account responded by saying, “Only Florida’s colors and logo could make an iconic shoe look like it came from a bin at Walmart.”
The actual Walmart then joined the conversation with a clip Florida’s hail mary victory over the Vols.

KSR is IN STUDIO (not in Prestonsburg) today.
The KSR summer tour remote at StoneCrest Golf Course has been postponed and we will be doing the show in studio in Lexington today. So if you were planning to meet us in Prestonsburg, don’t do that. We’ll be there at a date to be named later.
