Today on KSR: The Day After

Good morning, BBN. It’s a new day in the Bluegrass. But if you missed any of KSR’s reactions to the Auburn loss, here are some links. Read them, then put this week behind you.

The great thing about football, especially football early in the season, is that you get to gear up and give it another shot in just a week’s time. The season’s still young, folks.

Now, let’s get your Sunday started with some news.

GoFundMe launched for Chris Oats

A GoFundMe organized by Keaton Upshaw to raise money for LB Chris Oats, who has been dealing with a serious medical issue since May, has raised over $21,000 and counting. Every game this year, a member of Kentucky’s defense will wear #22 to honor Oats. Here’s the link if you want to check it out or submit a donation of your own.

Reds clinch first playoff berth since 2013

After defeating the Minnesota Twins on Friday night and having a few other things go their way, the Cincinnati Reds are heading to the postseason for the first time in seven years.

After dropping a game to the Twins again last night, they stand at 30-29. Currently, Cincinnati is holding the top Wild Card spot, which would set up a series with the two-seeded Atlanta Braves. The pitching rotation for the Wild Card round has already been set.

There’s one more game left of the regular season today at 3:10 EST.

Davis and Lakers advance to first Finals berth since 2010

Last night the Los Angeles Lakers knocked off the Denver Nuggets 117-107 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. LeBron James led the way with a triple-double consisting of 38 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists, Anthony Davis chipped in with 27 points. It’s been an incredible run for the Lakers, and now Davis will have a chance to rep the Wildcats in the Finals. It sure looks like he’s having fun:

Herro and Adebayo have a chance to go to the Finals tonight

Former Wildcats Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo have a chance to join fellow alum Anthony Davis in the Finals tonight. The Miami Heat lead the Boston Celtics three games to two, and Game 6 is set to tip-off at 7:30 on ESPN. It’s been a fun series that’s seen the Tyler/Bam duo post some eye-popping numbers. In Game 4, Herro posted a career-high with 37 points. Bam’s been a consistent presence, averaging nearly 20 points and 10.5 boards this series.

To top it off, Herro has the best-selling jersey in NBA right now. The hype is real.

WATCH: UK Basketball shares their thoughts on Quarantine Cal’s look

Everyone seems to have an opinion on Coach Cal’s scruffy appearance these days, especially the guys who see him the most. Check out some of the UK basketball players give their take on their coach’s “Quarantine look.”

Cats to watch for on this NFL Sunday

  • Randall Cobb and the Houston Texans head to Pittsburgh, where they’ll take on the daunting Steelers defense led by Bud Dupree. Houston has endured a buzzsaw of a season so far, dropping games to both the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens, and it doesn’t get any easier today. The Steelers have one of the NFL’s best defense, and Dupree has been a big reason why. So far this season he’s recorded one sack and forced a fumble. Cowboys receiver Randall Cobb had five receptions for 59 yards last Sunday and will look to build his chemistry with QB Deshaun Watson in Week 3.
  • Also on the Steelers is Benny Snell, who had a disappointing Week 2 after showing some serious potential in Week 1. The second-year back managed only five yards on three carriers after putting up 119 yards in his season debut. It’ll be interesting to see how he gets used in this one versus the Texans.
  • Za’Darius Smith and the Green Bay Packers are traveling to New Orleans to take on the Saints in a big Sunday Night Football matchup. The Pack is 2-0 on the year and Smith has played well. So far, he’s recorded a sack in each game and has constantly been around the football. Smith and the Packers’ undefeated status is on the line against a banged-up Saints team that is hungry for a win after losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

That’s all we’ve got for you this morning, BBN. Have a great Sunday!

    Another year another scrub at QB.

      That’s a little premature knucklehead. Let’s give him a little more time. He hasn’t played in over a year and his first game is against the number 8 team in the country..

      Agreed. Way too early to get down on Wilson. Need a better offensive game plan.

      I’m fine with giving Terry another another game to work out the kinks but if he has a poor performance and we go 0-2, might as well start the true freshman the rest of the season b/c I doubt we can dig ourselves out of an 0-2 start.

      Idk. I honestly believe that our playcalling is what makes Wilson and our receivers look horrible.

      I have a tendency to agree with cats646. The play calling could sure use some improvement..PCF, we sure don’t want to go 0-2, you’re right. I think Terry deserves a little more time, but I’d love to see what Beau Allen can do if he falters. And if we get Gatewood eligible that’s another option that looks appealing

      Yes, give Terry more time. Plus, have you all forgotten about Sawyer? If he doesn’t get hurt we beat Florida last year.

    Same crap year after year. No intestinal fortitude to get over a bad call by the refs, beat OL with good RBs, but abandon the run game, ran too many screens, defensive couldn’t cover or tackle, put too much on Turnover Terry. We will be lucky to go 5-5. This game is the epitome of why nobody respects the UK football program.

    Seems like we never played with confidence yesterday.

    As I said:

    We were screwed on the ‘non’ TD call. But, very poor tackling in the secondary, very poor play calling in vital situations, poor game management as usual, and Wilson is not,has not, and will not be a very good QB got this team beat. We ain’t playing 4 gimmes this year. He’s petrified of contact and has been since he arrived. He does not see all the field, and for a 5th year player STILL does not know where he is on the field when sliding for a 1st down. Oh, and what’s with throwing the ball in the stands on the extra try. He didn’t even attempt to run, reverse field or find someone else. He just gave up. All of these are required of a good SEC QB. Rusty is no excuse.

    If you have one of the best OL’s in the SEC, which I and experts believe, WHY not stuff it down Auburn’s throat 4 plays at the goal line. That pass on 3rd down was just a ridiculous call. And why would you EVER let Wilson sneak the ball for yardage? The guy does not want contact and does not have the size. When he went under center with the RB up, everyone knew this was a QB keep. Every team we play is successful at the sideline pass and we get thrown for a loss or gain 2-3 yards at best. Smoke NEEDS more reps.Overall defensively not all that bad with the exception of poor tackling in the secondary. Good luck against Kiffin and Leach.

      I disagree that he’s been petrified of contact. He may be right now due to the injury, but patience man. Patience.

      I agree about some of the play calling and Smoke though. Smoke is our best RB. Horrible that he got so few carries and that several were only when we were on our own 1 yard line.
