Today on KSR: The Start of a Big Sports Week

Good morning friends and Happy Sunday! I thought we’d start off with Happy Stoops because 1) Yesterday was a good day and a good win. 2) It’s the start of a short but BIG UK sports week and 3) Happy Stoops is the best Stoops. Ok, here’s what’s going on today:

Sights and Sounds from Senior Day:

ICYMI and I don’t know how you would, but still, if you did, Kentucky beat Middle Tennesee State on Senior day yesterday 34-23. It’s Kentucky’s first eight-win season since 1984. It’s my first time seeing a Kentucky football time win eight games. I think I like it.

We have a ton of Senior Day coverage from yesterday here, here, and here.

It’s been a heck of a season and a heck of a ride with these seniors. I’m gonna miss them.

It’s a BIG Week for UK Fans Who Love Sports

I woke up this morning feeling like I just hit the lottery (I also woke up in a carb coma from friendsgiving yesterday but that’s beside the point). Not only is it a short work week, but THERE’S SO MANY SPORTS ON!

We’ve got Sunday football today along with both Kentucky Basketball teams playing, Monday night Football tomorrow, a smallish break Tuesday, the Men’s team playing Wednesday, Thanksgiving Basketball tournaments plus football on Thursday, and then College Football rivalry games start Friday. I’m PUMPED. Looking for a place to camp out all week and escape the family? Look no further

UK Hoops plays today!

UK Hoops looks to extend their 3-0 start to 4-0 today. The Cats take on High Point at 2 PM in Memorial. Fans can receive free admission to the game if they bring a canned food item to donate! So, get out there and pregame you basketball with some basketball today! Need more reason to go? This highlight video from the UVA game in Rupp last week might convince you:

UK Men Play Today Too!

As I said, we are truly living a dream week! Kentucky plays VMI tonight at 6 PM in Rupp Arena. According to the BBN Media Twitterverse this week of practice has been HARD for these young cats! Let’s hope it works. Stay tuned on this great website for lots and lots of coverage later tonight!

College Basketball is Officially Back

I know it’s been a couple of weeks, but last night we had our first big upset of the season! it’s officially basketball season now! Furman beat potential title-winning Villanova 76-68 in overtime. It was a crazy game, one that caused a couple of friends and to leave the table at our Friendsgiving dinner party to watch. I’m not sorry about it, it was a great game. The celebration after was even better though.

Ahh, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year!


That’s all for me today friends! Happy Sunday and Happy Thanksgiving week! Go Cats!

    I thought Gran did better yesterday, and Terry was great. MTSU is one of those pesky mid majors that puts up a lot of points and wins their divisional games. It’s odd that our D was having trouble, but in the past, we might’ve lost that game. I remember a similar game against Louisiana Monroe that we lost not long ago. We’re better! But I’d still like to see a little more variety and coaching gamesmanship on offense.

    There was a lot of variety in the calls yesterday.

    It may not be what the fanbase wants but there was a huge difference in play calling Saturday.

    There should be concern that an offensive line that literally beat up Mississippi State, had trouble making holes yesterday.
    However Gran should have recognized that early on(like every fan watching)and stopped with the ” send Benny up the middle”.

    No mention of our #3 nationally ranked soccer team hosting their NCAA tournament game today at 4? Okay, then, I will… Go CATS!

      Yeah, Savannah might want to update her post to add the soccer match at 4pm, I think that’s probably a big deal around Big Blue World!

      And volleyball going for regular season SEC Championship if they win at ranked Mizzou! They’ve won something like 18 straight and are near top ten!

      As a UK fan, this game is a bigger deal than any other thing she mentioned in her post, with the Louisville game maybe being the exception. Our men’s soccer team is historically good. We have beaten traditional and modern soccer power houses this year.

      By game time they’ll be telling us how great VMI is and we’ll have our hands full! I am so tired of the pregame hype machine for the teams we’ve been playing. It’s just pathetic. We’ve played 1 good team, that’s it. Listening to pregame hype and the actual game announcers you’d think we’re playing that same team every game!!! No, I refuse to say who that 1 team was!!!

    “but last night we had our first big upset of the season! it’s officially basketball season now!”. Sorry, but as a CAT FAN, anytime we are #2 in the country and get our butts whooped, humiliated, and disgraced, by a 30+ point beatdown at the hands of a #4 Duke??? THAT is an UPSET… and I hope our CATS never forget and get revenge later this year!
