You’ll want to find a radio between 10 and noon today because KSR has a lot planned for Wednesday morning’s show. For starters, it’s Breathitt County’s turn in the spotlight and that’s a county with some stories to tell. We hope to hear from its residents throughout the morning and if you have any fun facts, leave them in the comments below.
The show will also bring the return of OH Napier, a name from KSR’s early days.
And if that’s not enough for you, a special guest will join the show to make an announcement that will excite Kentucky football fans.
Former ETSU head coach Steve Forbes got a job at Wake Forest and now he thinks he can take shots at real basketball schools. (Easy, Steve. You’re at Wake Forest.)
Forbes wants Olivier Sarr to stay put in Winston-Salem so he went on a radio show and said, “I think the most important thing is, why would you go to Wake for three years, put all that time in for a prestigious degree, and end up getting your degree at a place like Kentucky?”
I don’t know, Steve, why would a good basketball player want to waste another year playing for you at Wake Forest? The NCAA Tournament is fun, they hear.
Reminder: Sarr announced his transfer as soon as Forbes put out this video:
Time to get fired up, Deacon Nation!
We're ready…are you?!

Speaking of ETSU, it still needs to replace Forbes, and Joel Justus is on the list.
However, there are two candidates (one is the current interim) in much better position that Justus to land the job, so this one probably isn’t the one for UK’s young assistant.
SCOOP: KSR’s Jack Pilgrim tracked down DeAndre Williams’ mentor for an interview.
Williams is another frontcourt option from the transfer market and Jack tracked down his old coach to ask about Williams’ game and which direction he may go for his next college basketball stop after Evansville. It sounds like Calipari’s message to Williams is the usual: I’m not giving you anything, you have to come here and earn it.
The winner of BBN Jam will be decided today.
It’s Anthony Davis/Michael Kidd-Gilchrist versus Antoine Walker/Derek Anderson in the championship matchup:
There will be no “Survivor” live blog tonight.
We’ve had a good thing going each Wednesday night with a live blog for “Survivor” but this week we have to take a break due to a number of interferences. For starters, it’s a two-hour episode and that’s a lot. Plus I just moved and everything is in boxes, Roush has a newborn and Tomlin has book club duties this week. To all who have joined us in past weeks, we’ll do it again in seven days.
Find that radio.
