To start your day, some of you may be like the young UK fan on the right. Others might be questioning your decision-making, like the kid on the left. “Why did I do this?” There is no questioning each young fan’s dedication to the Cats, just like KSR. We are dedicated to giving you UK news and views each and everyday. Here’s what’s in store Tuesday, October 16:
Updates from the UK Offense — After a week off, Eddie Gran, Terry Wilson, Benny Snell and other select offensive players will meet with the media this evening. It’s a day after Mark Stoops shared some ahead of Kentucky’s homecoming game against Vanderbilt.
Good Injury News — A few players will be returning to practice this week. Drake Jackson will be back today and in a surprising twist, Naasir Watkins is back in action. Just last week Stoops did not believe the left tackle would be healthy enough to return to the field this Saturday. Stoops also had a positive Josh Paschal update.
“Maybe I’ll have a nice smile on my face and a good update here in a couple of weeks. We’ll see.” Stoops said Paschal is currently doing some light running and bodyweight training to get back into shape.
The Keeneland-Kroger Field Shuttle is BACK — There’s only one opportunity for UK fans to pull the Keeneland-UK Football double this season and it is this Saturday. Lextran is here to help by providing $1 rides to Keeneland from University Drive. You’ll find all of the details here.
UK Basketball Practice Continues — During the first few weeks of the UK basketball season, fans don’t get to see much. This time is reserved for hard work that will pay dividends later in the season. We did however get to see a small glimpse of yesterday’s practice.

The College Basketball Federal Case Continues — Yesterday Bill Self’s name entered the crosshairs of the FBI in federal court. Will Self face consequences? That’s yet to be seen. We’ll see if any other names enter the conversation today.
People are still Mad about TopGolf — The ridiculous fight against TopGolf continued last night. At first it was kind of funny. Then it was slightly concerning. Now it’s just sad. Before you check out Marcus Green’s Twitter thread from last night’s meeting, smile because these people are probably going to get stuck with it regardless after Thursday’s meeting.
Big Blue Madness with B-Roll — Relive the best moments from Friday night with Bradley McKee.

Two New Podcasts — The KSR Football Podcast got back into the lab at KSR Bar and Grille to give you everything you need to prepare for Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt. Meanwhile on the West Coast, Aaron Torres had a candid conversation with former Florida Gator Corey Brewer.
Two Baseball Games — The Red Sox and Astros will battle for a one-game advantage in game three of the ALCS at 5:09 on TBS. The Brewers could take control of the NLCS with a game four win. They currently have a 2-1 lead over the Dodgers. First pitch is at 9:09 on FS1.
The NBA is BACK — We are entering the time of the year when every sport is playing at the same time. The NBA joins the party when the 76ers tip-off against the Celtics at 8:00 on TNT. That game is followed by a matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder (Patrick Patterson, Nerlens Noel, Hamidou Diallo) and the Golden State Warriors (Boogie Cousins will not play) at 10:30.
