Today on KSR: Groundhog Day


It’s February 2, which means it is LIT at Gobbler’s Knob near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.  The all-night celebration ended this morning around 7:30 when Phil saw his shadow.  Bundle up, there’s six more weeks of winter (and only six more weeks until the first round of the NCAA Tournament).

It’s hard to be sad there will be six more weeks of winter when Punxsutawney Phil is so darn cute.

Coach Cal Previews Mizzou Road Trip

This afternoon John Calipari is set to meet with the media around 1:00 to talk about tomorrow’s game at Missouri.  Hopefully Coach Cal has recovered from his early week illness.  He wasn’t looking too hot on Tuesday.

Mark Stoops has Completed his Coaching Staff

After hiring Michael Smith to replace Lamar Thomas as the wide receivers coach, Mark Stoops picked his tenth and final assistant from the Indianapolis Colts.  Brad White will coach outside linebackers for the Cats.  The addition of White moves his Wake Forest defensive coordinator, Dean Hood, back to the secondary.

“When I talked to Brad, he impressed me with his expertise, his NFL experience and what a very, very good technician he is,” said Stoops, who did not know White prior to the hiring search. “Brad came highly recommended from people I know at Indianapolis. In addition to his knowledge of coaching linebackers, he has ‘big picture’ expertise.

“I’m also excited about hiring Brad because it will enable us to move Coach (Dean) Hood to the secondary, where he will assist Coach Clink (Steve Clinkscale). Dean has been a defensive backs coach for most of his career.”

The Cats Finally Got Their Bowl Gifts

Lynn Bowden can’t wait to open up that PS4.

UK Hoops Wins Another One

The Kentucky women’s basketball team is on a roll.  Last night’s 65-48 win over Auburn is the Cats’ third consecutive win.  Maci Morris scored a team-high 18 points to surpass the 1,000 for her career.  She’s the 33rd player to enter UK’s 1,000-point club.

Kentucky returns to action at home on Super Bowl Sunday against LSU at noon.

Murray, Booker are in All-Star Weekend

Injuries have taken two Cats, Wall and Cousins, out of the All-Star Game.  In their place, we have a pair of Wildcats performing prior to Sunday’s All-Star Game.  A third-place finisher in last year’s three-point contest, this year Devin Booker is gunning for the top spot.  Prior to the shoot-out, Jamal Murray will participate in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.  Steven Adams will tell you Mr. Murray has some skills.

Boogie is on his way BACK

One Week till the Winter Olympics

The opening ceremonies in Pyeongchang are just seven days away.  Hard to believe, right?  In honor of the event, it’s time to share everyone’s favorite feel-good storyline: condoms.  The Olympic Village that hosts the athletes has been stocked with 110,000 condoms, 10,000 more than were provided by the Russians in Sochi.  I can’t leave you with that story on a Friday, so here’s what the medals will look like at this year’s games.

      Did they stock them in XXL for the NBA players?

      @RCF – Basketball is a summer Olympic sport, so there probably aren’t any NBA players there. Also, you can easily stretch a regular condom over the business end of a regulation baseball bat without breaking it. If they legitimately need XXL, I feel bad for whoever is on the receiving end of that thing (and for whoever has to carry it around all day!)

      Yeah, was referring to the other Olympics when they had the NBA dudes around. Haven’t had the need to stretch a condom over a baseball bat. Mathlete, what on earth would motivate you to do such a thing? 😉

      The old Soviet Union ran out of condoms one time, and ordered some from the U.S.
      We sent them XS.

      There’s a lot of weird stuff on YouTube. Sometimes you just fall down a rabbit hole and end up in at a tea party with a talking cat, a fancily dressed rabbit, and a deranged haberdasher…

    Quick notes:

    1. Don’t drive angry!
    2. Cal needs to steal some of Count K’s “Just for Men”. Dude is getting grey!
    3. Good luck to Boogie in his recovery. Hope it goes smoothly for him and he is back 100% next year.
    4. Does Punxsutawney Phil predict the winter for the entire country, or do we have to get predictions from our local vermin?
