Today on KSR: Beat Georgia

The weekend we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Tomorrow at 3:30 p.m., your Kentucky Wildcats will take on the Georgia Bulldogs for the SEC East in the biggest game in the program’s history. That means we don’t have a lot of time to waste, so let’s get to it.

10 AM – Noon: An Epic KSR

We’ve seen some great pep talks from Ryan Lemond this season, but something tells me today’s will be one for the ages. Start a big weekend right by coming to today’s show at GCH Insurance in Lexington (780 Winchester Road across from the JIF Peanut Butter building). Rockhouse Brewing, Pivot Brewing, and Rise Up Pizza will also be there to make all of your Friday KSR remote dreams come true.

3 – 7 PM: The Paul Finebaum Show on UK’s campus, featuring Matt

Finebaum rolls into town today and will do his show from the SEC Nation set near William T. Young Library. Fans are invited to watch the show, which will also include our own Matt Jones. Make a funny sign and get on out there to make Kentucky look good, or just follow along on the SEC Network.

7 PM: Kentucky Basketball vs. Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Remember basketball? John Calipari’s squad takes on Indiana University of Pennsylvania in their final exhibition tonight at Rupp. Last week’s exhibition vs. Transy wasn’t exactly the thrilling romp we all had envisioned, so hopefully the Cats come out with a little bit more fire in them tonight. The game will be shown on the SEC Network with Kevin Fitzgerald and Daymeon Fishback on the call.

7 PM: No. 3 Kentucky Men’s Soccer vs. No. 24 Old Dominion

Another big game is going down on campus tonight, this one at The Bell, where the No. 3 ranked men’s soccer team takes on No. 24 Old Dominion in a winner-take-all match for the Conference USA regular season championship. The match will be streamed live on SEC Network+/WatchESPN.

A big weekend at KSBar and Grille

After his show is over today, Paul Finebaum will make his first appearance at KSBar and Grille to grab some grub and watch the Kentucky. vs. Indiana University of Pennsylvania game. Come join the fun in what will be a wild weekend at the bar.

Quick hitters…

Jordan Jones will play with a broken hand

Mark Stoops dropped a surprise on reporters yesterday with the news that Jordan Jones broke his hand during practice this week; however, Jones will play vs. Georgia on Saturday wearing a club like Kash Daniel did vs. Missouri. Chris Oats and DeAndre Square will rotate in as needed.

Reminder: Salute to Veterans

Tomorrow is also the program’s annual Salute to Veterans, and yesterday, Rolling Thunder Inc. installed four chairs of honor in the four corners of Kroger Field in memory of prisoners of war missing in action from WWII.

De’Aaron Fox messed around and got a triple double

Fox turned in the first triple double of his NBA career last night with 31 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds vs. the Atlanta Hawks. He’s the youngest player in NBA history with a 30, 15, and 10 game and one of only two players to do it before the age of 21. The other? LeBron James. I hear he’s pretty good.

Did you miss any of our Wandale Robinson coverage?

Because we had a lot of it:

If you want some entertainment today, look up Nebraska Football fans on Twitter. They salty.

If you need me, I’ll be watching the hype video on loop

Way better than coffee.

    Do you think Tim Tebow is going to be greeted with open arms this week? And can Benny come out and chat about our facilities and beating fl and them losing to ga and uk potentially winning the east with a win today?

    I wanted to address the near constant critique of Coach Gran. Personally, I’m getting really sick of the armchair quarterbacking going on around here over our offensive coordinator and QB. People…Eddie Gran is a very good coach. He knows what he is doing. The conservative play calling was due in large part to protect the QB and to protect the team from basically a FRESHMAN quarterback who was shown to be prone to making turnovers. When you have a great defense and are solid at RB and OL…this is what you do! Stoops has been largely successful at UK because of shortening the game. Wilson doesn’t need to be chucking in 30+ times a game. He has shown the ability to throw the ball successfully when needed, but we really haven’t needed it (may I remind you we are 7-1). Sure, the “Air Raid” offense was fun, but what was the best we ever did with it? 7 wins? Or do you prefer back in the nineties when we were losing games by 60 points in the early years of Mumme-ball? The piss and moan crowd around here are not nearly as knowledgeable as they think they are. Stoops and Gran know what they are doing. In fact, I think Gran will continue to slowly give Wilson more leash as the season (and his career) progress and as he learns to protects the ball better (as evidenced by the last game). Just chill with the hyperbole about Gran being the worst OC ever….he has earned our trust…and enjoy the ride 🙂

      It’s cool … Personally, I’m getting really sick of people telling other people what they can and can’t critique.

      Like Gran, Hate Gran … Let It Out. I don’t care one way or the other. Regardless of if Gran stays or goes, it could always be worse. We could be Dirty Birds.

      I’ll take Complaining over Apathy any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

      Delraycat, The ones crying about Gran are the same ones that always cry about something. It’s to hot it’s to cold ,change Quarterbacks, let so and so play. But likeScogg Dog says they can if they want to.

      Here’s my advice DelrayCat. If you don’t like people’s opinion that don’t match yours then stop reading social media. Because everyone has the right to their opinion. Granted many opinions are ignorant and have zero factual basis. Btw, Wilson is not a freshman. Peace.

      But you should care, ScoggDog. I’m with DelrayCat on this one, and here’s why: it stirs up controversy, and it does so needlessly. I understood when it was calling for benching players, replacing coaches when it was obvious that it wasn’t going to get the job done. However, we are getting the job done! We play for the SEC East and are not out of the running for the College Football Playoffs in week 10. What more would you want? Would we like to feel more at ease regarding our offensive capabilities? Of course. Can we second guess a particular call here and there? Yes. However, when the calls don’t work, do you know the specific reason it broke down? Do you know the Defensive fronts and coverages that led Gran to decide on that particular play? We don’t, and when we gripe so much at something that is working, we cause dissension, doubt, and animosity among the entire BBN, even in some of the player’s minds. Get behind this bunch, cheer them on, and enjoy what I know is going to be the first of a long line of amazing seasons. Go Big Blue!

      I HATE the sideline screens we run with one blocker and two defenders out there. We never make that work. Other than that I like Gran.

      Left this out accidentally in my rant: suppose Terry Wilson threw that pass to Bowden that took us to the 10 against Missouri high or low, and Bowden drops it or gets tackled in bounds. Complainers would be screaming for his head! However, since it put us in a great position to throw one last pass, we talk about what a heads up call he made when he saw the Missouri defense. I don’t believe the old OC Dawson could coach worth much, but his quote about a play being good if it would have worked has a touch of truth in there. All plays work if everyone blocks who they are supposed to, and makes the right reads.

      Highway119 sorry but that’s a completely ignorant statement that “all plays work if everyone blocks who they are supposed to, and makes the right reads”. Offensive and defensive sets/alignments has a lot to do with if a play works or not. If a defense alignment has more defenders in the box than the offense has blockers based on the box and a run play is balled between the tackles it has little chance to succeed. That’s why coordinators study a teams tendencies and alignments.

      I’m with you on the fact that the coaches get too much of the blame. But there are times when Gran could do better.

    • highway119

      Dismore, hence the statement to make the right reads. Almost all QB’s have checks that they can use if the defense lines up in an unexpected way, so it’s not ignorant at all. Unless you are in a basic middle or high school offense, your QB is expected to make the offense right by giving the ball, pulling the ball and running/passing, or checking them into a hot call. If Gran is calling plays with no checks, then by all means, send him out on a rail; if he is calling plays, and the players aren’t executing them properly through checks, knowing assignments, or ability, that is another thing entirely.
