Congrats! You made it through the first 24 hours after a loss. Now you have one final hurdle to navigate before returning to normalcy — the next game.
When coping with NCAA Tournament losses, this is the part I find most difficult. I could not watch the Duke-Wisconsin title game, I did not watch the 2010 Final Four and I don’t think I will be able to watch Loyola-Kansas State. I love Sister Jean, don’t get me wrong, but if the Ramblers do not advance to the Final Four the painful ‘What if’ game will surface and I don’t think I can handle that just yet.
To avoid this internal struggle, it’s best to completely ignore them. I began with Bingo last night. You can’t check scores while you’re dabbin’ numbers. Bowling is a good ole-fashioned rainy Saturday night alternative too. The movie theater might be the best place to avoid Elite Eight basketball, and a comedy might be the perfect prescription for your basketball blues. If you hate all of those recommendations, there are other sports to fulfill your fix.
Pro Day is Complete
Juice was fast, Mosier is back, Freddie was funny and the Patriots (of course) talked to Chuck.
Kentucky’s First Spring Scrimmage
Mark Stoops’ team will go live in an 11-on-11 scrimmage for the first time this spring. We’ll hear the results from Stoops and his staff around 2:00 this afternoon.
Until then, hear offensive line coach John Schlarman mic’d up during Tuesday’s practice. If you don’t appreciate the chalk talk, you’ll love the story he tells about his experience at Nutter.
UK Baseball Game Postponed
Game two of the Kentucky-Auburn series has been postponed, thanks to Mother Nature. If the rain goes away, the Cats and the Tigers will play a seven inning double-header at The Cliff tomorrow, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Since you can’t get your baseball fix today, check out highlights from UK’s game one walk-off win.
Basketball never ends in Kentucky. That’s why tomorrow morning I’m leaving for Atlanta, and no, I’m not crazy. That’s where this year’s McDonald’s All-American Game is being played. I’ll have updates and interviews with Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley throughout the week that should get you excited for UK’s 2018-19 basketball season.
