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

Today on KSR: Talkin’ about practice, KSR housekeeping notes

@KentuckyMBB | Twitter

Good morning!

Welcome to another beautiful day of Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com content to take up most of your time while you should be working. It has been a slow time for fans of Kentucky basketball and football, but things are picking up as we count down the days to football camp and the Cats’ trip to the Bahamas. Both will be here before you know it.

Here’s what is going on in the world right now and we’ll have plenty more coming your way throughout the rest of the day and beyond.

Also, you look good. Have you been eating right and working out? It’s paying off. Keep it up!


Kentucky practiced for the first time yesterday.

John Calipari got his team together for its first practice of the year on Wednesday. The team went for 90 minutes and it has Calipari “feeling good,” he said afterward. shared a full written report of the practice Wednesday night, in which TJ Beisner gave a brief description of each of the freshmen, as well as the practice as a whole. You can read that here. Beisner and Calipari both talked about the staff’s emphasis on teaching the team how to practice as the main theme of Day 1.

The team will hold its second practice today.

Stanford’s coach opened up about Reid Travis transferring to UK.

Interesting comments from Stanford head coach Jerod Haase, who said Travis’ transfer is like “being penalized a scholarship” because it happened so late in the year. However, he also said he knew it was a possibility he would lose Travis because Travis said all along he planned to test the NBA draft waters. Read all Haase had to say here.

#BlueGotIn the TODAY Show.


Earlier in the week, it was a Louisville fan and his “John Calipari hates puppies!” sign on the TODAY Show. This morning, we got three lovely ladies wearing UK blue.

Nick Roush is getting married this weekend.

Hard to believe, right? Our young intern is all grown up and marrying the woman of his dreams this Saturday. He’ll be away from his work obligations the next few days as he works hard to keep her from changing her mind before it is too late. Don’t mess this up, Nick.

The KSR bowling team is still bad at bowling.

It pains me to report that, after climbing up a spot from last place to second-to-last place this past week, the KSR bowling team lost Wednesday night to fall back to dead last. Sadly, we played the team that was in last place and couldn’t get it done, therefore we’re back to the bottom of the standings. 40th out of 40 in our own damn league.

Any Westworld fans out there?

If so, can you tell me what I just watched? I’m all caught up after watching the season finale and I don’t really know what’s going on. Has the show become a dud? Discuss.

The “Ask Anything Mailbox” returns tonight.

After a two-week break for my vacation, we’ll get personal again tonight with the third edition of the “Ask Anything Mailbox.” Send your questions to me on Twitter at @DrewFranklinKSR or to the e-mail account at [email protected]

Today’s radio show is in the soft and comforting hands of Kyle Tucker. The former SEC Country star will guest host the two hours to talk UK basketball and football while Matt Jones soaks up the sun in lovely Minneapolis, Minnesota, on vacation.

    This season of Westworld sucked. Don’t let anyone fool you into believing it’s something brilliant that some people just “don’t get;” it’s the most convoluted mess on television. There are big, interesting ideas to be found, but they’re buried beneath half a dozen shifting timelines that make the good stuff nearly impossible to decipher. A show that asks me to think or work toward an understanding of its ideas is way different than a show that asks me to grab my pen and paper each week to keep track of what’s happening to who, and when. It’s like the sci-fi equivalent of Little Ralphie grabbing his decoder and tuning in to “Little Orphan Annie” each week, and the end result isn’t much different than, “Drink Your Ovaltine.”

      Preach. Season finale was the worst 90 minutes of TV I’ve seen in a while.

      Completely agree Tony. I thought the first season of WW great and that it was going to be one of my new top shows. Then the second season came around and now that the mystique of the park itself is pretty much dead, the show doesn’t really set itself apart from any other mystery/drama aside from the fact that it’s way overly complicated. Way too much time goes into trying to fool and twist the audience in my opinion. I feel like it’s the summer season for TV shows right now until GoT comes back. Handmaid’s Tale is really good if you can get past the ridiculous political BS (it’s not easy but it’s possible). My fiance and I will probably watch The Sopranos until GoT comes back. Maybe give Black Mirror a try.

      rewatch the Sopranos*. Going through it again for the 3rd time and I like it better this time than ever before.

      I think some intern dropped the script and it blew all over the parking lot. They grabbed as many pages as they could and handed it, out of order, to the director and he said alright….action!

    Matt being the worst bowler on the worst team is pretty funny. What an athletic specimen.
