Welcome to Moving Day!
This is a little different than the move-in day that happened earlier this week on UK’s campus. This moving day is dedicated to the Kentucky football players who are trying to earn playing time. Whoever brings their A-game in the second preseason scrimmage, arguably the most important game we cannot see, will be rewarded with more reps and a move toward the top of the depth chart.
Last week’s scrimmage was too sloppy for Mark Stoops’ liking. He’ll meet with the media around 1:00 to share what he saw at Kroger Field. Hopefully his review isn’t as critical this afternoon.
Two Weeks Until Kickoff
Remaining patient a problem? These Josh Allen highlights should help.
Have you Voted?
No, I’m not talking about politics. Kentucky is facing Florida in the finals of the @MarchMadness All-Time Top Five Tournament. How the Gators made it this far is beyond me, but that doesn’t matter. All that matters is another UK W, one that you can help make happen by clicking here and casting your vote for the Cats.
DeSales > St. X
Remind T.J. Walker that this is now an empirical fact. Last night the Tigers came to the south side of Louisville and left with a big L. There are many reasons why the 19-16 win is a big deal, but the way my Colts won is what makes me pound my chest. The 6A school was supposed to overpower the tiny guys from 2A. Instead, DeSales got a pair of fourth down stops in the red zone, held X to just 45 rushing yards and milked away an entire fourth quarter with three yards and a cloud of dust.
The only thing I hated about the opening of high school football in Kentucky is that it’s such a tease. We still have two more weeks until Kentucky kicks off, and I can’t wait that long. If you’re too impatient, there are about 20 games today around the state, from Campbellsville and WKU to Mercer County. A few scores from last night:
- Central 18, Manual 0
- Carmel (IN) 24, Trinity 21
- J-Town 22, Doss 20
- Pulaski County 48, Northwest (TN) 39
- Bourbon County 26, Clay County 13
- Daviess County 49, Owensboro Catholic 26
- Franklin County 27, Western Hills 20
- Henry Clay 50, Tates Creek 22
- Simon Kenton 29, Meade County 28
- Moore 33, Southern 7
Between you and I, it’s a dead time around the world of UK Athletics, but lucky for you I’ve saved up a few juicy football stories for today that should get you excited for September 1. Stay tuned.
