I don’t know about you guys, but this has been the long week at the KSR compound. I can blame it on the weather, which has been absolute poop, but part of the malaise is due to the fact that tomorrow, we will say goodbye to 16 seniors that helped the Kentucky Football program take the next step. Josh Allen, Mike Edwards, Darius West, Jordan Jones, CJ Conrad, Bunchy Stallings, and, if we’re honest with ourselves, probably Benny Snell, will play their last game at Kroger Field on Saturday, the finality of which has piled on to a depressing couple of weeks.
But the seniors and Benny wouldn’t want us to be sad. We’re going to do our best to send them out in style, starting with our senior spotlights, which will continue to roll out today. Last night, KyWildcatsTV got the feels going as only they know how:

Josh Allen to the Senior Bowl
Josh Allen has also accepted an invitation to play in the 2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl on January 26, giving scouts another chance to evaluate his incredible athleticism. As Freddie predicted when Allen signed, he has been a diamond in the rough:
When you’re not trying to figure out how to say goodbye to Josh Allen and Benny Snell, here’s what else you can look forward to today.
Dontaie Allen will sign his Letter of Intent
The in-state star will make his commitment to Kentucky official today at 1 p.m. at Pendleton County High School. The ceremony is not open to the public, but we’ll have coverage for you on the site, including UK’s official release with quotes from Allen and John Calipari.
Tony Barbee will preview VMI
Cal’s turning presser duties over to Tony Barbee this afternoon, so check the site around 2:30 p.m. for a live stream of his comments on the Cats’ win over North Dakota and Sunday’s matchup vs. VMI. Yes, there is a game on Sunday (6 p.m., SEC Network). This November schedule is weird.
Women’s Basketball beat Virginia
Matthew Mitchell’s squad got a big win last night, knocking off Virginia 65-51 at Rupp Arena. Senior Taylor Murray led the way with 12 points, her final free throws taking her past the 1,000 point mark in her career. The ladies are now 3-0 this season.
Below Deck: Med‘s Hannah wears Kentucky Blue
If you’ve got good taste in reality television, odds are you watch Bravo’s Below Deck and Below Deck: Mediterranean. Hannah Ferrier serves as the chief stewardess on the latter and is pals with fellow Aussie and former Cat Isaac Humphries. The two have posted several pics together on social media, and last night, my worlds collided again when Hannah sent out this picture of herself in Kentucky blue:

Hannah, if you’re reading, I’m going to need an Isaac cameo next season.
Netflix Rec of the Week: Dogs
You can’t walk a block without someone giving you a TV recommendation these days, so here’s one more. Dogs, a six-part docuseries, drops on Netflix today, and judging by the trailer, is the perfect show to watch with your family over Thanksgiving:
Yeah, that’s going to make me cry.
The Facebook comments on this mugshot will make you laugh
I wouldn’t encourage you to go to Facebook without a good reason. The comments on this post by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office are hilarious.
