Good morning, all. Coronavirus be damned, my Tennessee Titans are 4-0, and we’re halfway through the week. Let’s celebrate with the stiff arm heard ’round the world (even if the play didn’t count because of a penalty):

“I’ve been doing too many curls,” Derrick Henry said when asked about the play. “I gotta lay off the arms.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to carry that energy into the rest of the day. Let’s go!

One day closer to Tennessee

We are one day closer to Kentucky’s trip to Knoxville, where the football Cats haven’t won since I was four months old. Last night, Eddie Gran, Darian Kinnard, and Josh Ali updated reporters on the offense’s progress after a dismal outing vs. Mississippi State. You can read Nick Roush’s recap of their comments here, but a few things that stood out to me:

  • Yes, it’s concerning that AJ Rose has fumbled the ball six times in the last seven games
  • Get ready for more Jutahn McClain
  • Gran is condensing the offense this week and is pleased so far in practice

Again, click here for Nick’s notes, or listen to Gran below.

We’ll hear from both Mark Stoops and Jeremy Pruitt on the SEC Teleconference around lunchtime and Brad White and members of the defense will chat with reporters this evening, so check the site early and often.

What’s going on with Florida? 

Yesterday afternoon, news broke that the Florida football team is hitting the pause button following an uptick in coronavirus cases. Tuesday morning, the program reported that five players tested positive for COVID-19, but reports later in the day had the number much higher. On Monday, the SEC postponed the Vanderbilt vs. Missouri game due to an outbreak in the Commodores locker room; will they do the same with LSU vs. Florida this weekend?

Today is the first day basketball teams can hold preseason practice

Starting today, Division I basketball teams can begin preseason practice. According to the new schedule from the NCAA, DI programs can hold 30 practices over the next 42 days, with players allowed to work up to 20 hours per week, four hours per day, with one day off per week.

Hopefully we’ll get some more footage from the Joe Craft Center soon.

We’ll hear from Joel Justus

Due to the pandemic, there is no in-person Kentucky Basketball media day this year, so instead, we’re hearing from the players and coaches via Zoom. On Monday, Davion Mintz introduced himself to the BBN, and this afternoon, assistant Joel Justus will chat with reporters about the new team. If you’ve got any questions for Justus, leave them in the comments and if they’re good enough, we’ll ask them.

NCAA meetings continue

The NCAA Division I Council meetings continue today, and according to Jeff Goodman, at least one big change will be made official: blanket waivers for an additional year of eligibility for winter sport athletes. According to Sports Illustrated, the council also agreed to put the one-time transfer exception and NIL rights proposal into the legislative cycle for a vote in January.

Anthony Davis realizing he is an NBA champion is the best thing you’ll see today (besides Derrick Henry’s stiff arm)

Congrats to AD, Rondo, and Frank Vogel. It’s been said a lot, but Kentucky really did own the NBA Bubble.

KSBar: Wingsday, Playoff Baseball, Trivia

The weather is supposed to be absolutely gorgeous again today, so get out and snag a spot on KSBar’s patio to enjoy our signature special: 25 wings for $20. With two playoff baseball games tonight (Dodgers vs. Braves, followed by Rays vs. Astros) AND live trivia, it really is the best way to celebrate being halfway done with the work week.

New “Love Lines With Lemond”

What are the Lemonds up to this week? Find out on a new episode of “Love Lines,” which will go live on KSR and our Facebook page at 9 p.m. ET.

KSR Dog of the Day

Today, we’re honoring Blue, Riley Welch’s new seven-month old puppy, whom he adopted from Kentucky Paws Animal Rescue. He is absolutely beautiful.

It’s Montgomery County Day on the show

Mount Sterling folks, get ready! The KSR Blue Lights Across the Bluegrass Virtual Tour is headed your way.

    Yesterday Greg Marshall made a comment to the media that I wonder if it was directed at KSR ?
    “It is important that the investigation conclude its work without outside influence,” he said. “An unrelenting character assassination by a member of the media that repeatedly targets me and my family threatens to undermine the impartiality of the investigation.”

      Interesting question; but, he’s probably talking about Jeff Goodman.

      Yeah, KSR only reported on the Jeff Goodman stuff that was already out there.
