Good morning friends! We’ve almost made it. There’s only one weekend left without college football. Has the off-season seemed incredibly long for anyone else or just me? Either way, we’re almost at the finish line – yay! To hold you over, let’s review what’s happening right now:
Speaking of Football…

The football team held an important scrimmage yesterday. Our beat writer Nick Roush met with Coach Stoops and select players afterwards. Check out his coverage including the big performance from the offense.
Is it September 1 yet?
Matt Jones won an Emmy
Matt Jones and the “Hey Kentucky” Crew won an Emmy last night and I couldn’t be more proud. Whether it’s a radio show, a website, a TV show or a (soon to be) bar, Matt excels at everything he does and I’m glad he’s the captain of this team we call KSR!
This was very cool and a real honor
It wouldn’t have happened without the amazing @hey_kentucky staff:

You need to watch this nun throw a pitch
I’ll take “sentences I’d never thought I’d type” for $400, Alex. Nuns are having a big sports year this year (another sentence I never thought I would type), first our beloved Sister Jean and now we’ve got Sister Mary from Chicago. Watch this for yourself:
Getting a little fancy out there.

I’ve watched this four times this morning and I’m still mesmerized. Talk about spiritual gifts, am I right?
Welcome to UK, Freshmen!

The Freshmen are officially back on campus and are looking younger than ever. Move-in started Thursday and should be over by now but, I’d still recommend staying away from campus for a bit. Unless you want to feel old and get stuck in traffic. I made the mistake of going to Local Taco Thursday night and it was a freshmen/parent madhouse. Take my advice and avoid the Nicholasville road Walmart and Target too, trust me.
Well, that’s all I have this morning, friends! Enjoy one of the last Sundays’ without football, be safe and wear sunscreen! Go Cats!
