University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Today on KSR: Same Face, New Place


Let that image marinate for a moment…

…Still weird.

Instead of trying his hand at the NBA, Player-10 will try to become eligible to play for Frank Martin at South Carolina.  If Brian Bowen is actually able to play college basketball, he will not be a Kentucky Wildcat opponent until the spring of 2019.

All-Star Voting SZN

You only have four more days to help your favorite Kentucky Wildcats get to the NBA All-Star Game in L.A.  Just Tweet your favorite player’s name with the hashtag #NBAVote.  If you need help remembering all 30 names, UK Athletics has a friendly graphic to help.

UK Opponents were Impressive

That win in Baton Rouge keeps looking better and better.  LSU followed their buzzer-beating win at Texas A&M with a dominating 75-54 win over Arkansas at Bud Walton Arena.  Louisville also looked good in what is their best win to date; a 17-point comeback win on the road to snap Florida State’s 28-game home winning streak.

Allen, Edwards will Speak with the Media

Kentucky’s two defensive stand-outs will publicly talk about their decision to turn down the NFL Draft for the first time.  They’ll take the podium and share why they believed it was best to return for one more year at UK around 11:30 this morning.

UCF wants Bama

This billboard now resides in Tuscaloosa.


Be careful what you wish for.

Kentucky Women Return to Action

Whoever wins tonight’s match-up between the Cats and the Gators in Gainesville will earn their first SEC win of the season.  If Matthew Mitchell’s team can get a road victory, it will also snap an 8-game losing streak.  You can see all the action on Watch ESPN at 7:00 p.m.

The following Tweets from Matt Smethurst should get your brain moving fast this morning with a remarkable tale.

John Tyler, America’s tenth president, was born in 1790. He has two living grandchildren. Yes, grandchildren.

1. John Tyler was 63 when his son Lyon was born (1853).

2. Lyon was 71 when Lyon Jr. was born (1924), and 75 when Harrison was born (1928).

3. Both sons are still alive.

Another way to think about this: There are people who could look at you today, in 2018, and say: “Yeah, my dad was 8 years old when the war started.” “World War 2?” “Ha, nope.” “Oh wow, World War 1?” “The Civil War.”

    I missed the comma between Allen and Edwards the first time I saw it. I felt like I was suddenly 20 years in the past for a second there.

    Does South Carolina get a discount for Bowen being used?

      LOL. Hopefully he was free since Pitino/Addidas paid the original sticker price!

    Seriously, how the hell is Bowen ever going to play college basketball ? He’s a cheater, from CheaterU.

    Dude, seriously, the hair. Like, what’s up with it? Who is advocating this hairstyle?

    I didn’t think it was possible to find a basketball player uglier than the Ball boys – insert Brian Bowen (who will never see the court in a NCAA game).

    How will this kid ever be allowed to play? Is it better or worse that he went to an Under Armor school instead of an Adidas school? Did Adidas at least get its money back or are these type of deals non-refundable? So many questions on this one.
