It is the University of Kentucky’s turn to take the stage at SEC Media Days down in Hoover, Alabama. Head coach Mark Stoops and three of his players — JoJo Kemp, Courtney Love and Jon Toth — will all be down south this afternoon to field questions from the strong media presence at college football’s unofficial beginning. Stoops is set to go third at the main podium after Nick Saban and Bret Bielema do their things, roughly around 2 pm.
As always, we will have everything you need to know here at KentuckySportsRadio.com. We have two sets of feet and two laptops on the ground, as well as the two hardest working bloggers in the game adding to the coverage from home. Be sure to ride with us this afternoon as we tackle Stoops’ comments and everything else from Hoover.
