Wake up and get your Milly Rock on with Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson, who were caught Milly Rocking in the UK basketball locker room. Many of you are staring at your screen right now, saying to yourself, “The hell is a Milly Rock?” and that’s okay. You’re not alone. I’m right there with you.
But here is the Milly Rock-off that occurred between two of UK’s star freshmen:

National Signing Day didn’t go as planned, but Mark Stoops and his staff are pleased with the 2019 haul.
National Signing Day 2019 was rather uneventful for followers of Kentucky football. Once an enormous spectacle that would have us up before sunrise each year, the February signing day has lost its luster due to the new early signing period in December, when Kentucky takes all but a couple members of its new class. This year, Mark Stoops and his staff hoped to land two or three more on NSD to complete the class, but lost late battles to LSU in the final days, leaving only one new addition for the Cats, MJ Devonshire. But Devonshire is a great pickup at a position of need, and the class as a whole looks good with 22 new guys joining the program.
Rather than recapping the entire day again, I’ll leave you with links to our stories from NSD and Mark Stoops’ Wednesday appearance on KSR:

Three football players to leave the program, another might stick around after all.
Running back Sihiem King, linebacker Kengera Daniel and defensive back Dominique Williams will seek other opportunities for their football careers, but backup quarterback Gunnar Hoak is expected to be back for another season, Stoops said Wednesday. For many, including myself, it’s a surprise to hear as the assumption was that Hoak would use the opportunity to transfer immediately to play two seasons as a grad transfer somewhere else. But Stoops plans to have Hoak back for a junior season, which is excellent news for the quarterback situation.
LSU beat Mississippi State in overtime in Starkville last night.
Quinndary Weatherspoon’s 27 points weren’t enough for Mississippi State to knock off 21st-ranked LSU at Mississippi State last night. The game needed overtime, where LSU pulled away with a 92-88 road victory over the Bulldogs. LSU sophomore guard Tremont Waters went for 26 points, only to be outdone by freshman big man Naz Reid’s 29 points. But the real star of the show was the heckler sitting behind the broadcast table.
Yo, there is a heckler behind the announcers in this MSU/LSU game that gets picked up clearly on their mic …and it's …hilarious!!

So do we like the fact that Mississippi State lost at home before Kentucky visits? A hard-fought overtime game certainly doesn’t hurt.
Adam Sandler hung out with the Louisville basketball team.
Chris Mack keeps trying to make me like him, but I won’t budge.

Adam Sandler, you’re dead to me.
(He kind of already was though because his most recent movies have been trash.)
Valentine’s Day is a week from today, do you and your significant other have plans?
If not, you should go to the most romantic restaurant in Lexington, KSBar and Grille, for our special Valentine’s Day Dinner For Two.
No PDA please.
Now get out there and Milly Rock on any block.
