— Kentucky is 17th in ESPN’s updated Power Rankings. The Cats moved down three places from last week and sit one spot behind Duke. Indiana might be the biggest surprise, making one of the biggest moves this week to #11. They probably have the Big 10 title in the bag, but they’ll probably find a way to choke it away. For the complete list, check here.
— Spring Game News. UK announced the Blue/White game will be at Commonwealth Stadium at noon on April 16, keeping the BBN away from Keeneland if only for an early afternoon. The tickets are once again free of charge, and season ticket holders can begin reserving their seat as soon as March 7. All others can place their bid on a seat beginning March 14.

— A Quarterback visited campus today. John Foreback has a long way to go before he’ll choose a college, but the 2018 pro-style Tennessee quarterback is still wading through the recruiting waters. Today he was in Lexington, Tweeting the following image with the caption, “Great time in Lexington!!!”
He’s getting interest from plenty of schools around the South, including both Tennessee SEC schools, Georgia, and he was in Tallahassee for Florida State’s Junior Day. You can watch his highlights here.
— The new food at Cliff Hagan Stadium is mouth-watering. Tomorrow the baseball team opens their first homestand of the season, taking on Austin Peay at 2:00. They’ve stepped up their promotions, and I love where their heads are. Sunday Sundaes, Taco Tuesdays and Wing Wednesdays are just a few of their new offers. The menu though…
- Rib Bucket: 6 ribs, cole slaw, fries and Texas toast
- Chicken & Waffle Cone: 3 chicken tenders, mashed potatoes and honey mustard in a waffle cone (GASP!)
- Hot Brown Nachos: Kettle chips, quest, turkey, ham, tomatoes and bacon
- AJ Reed Nachos: Served in a UK baseball helmet, these nachos come with every conceivable nacho topping you can imagine.
And there’s much more. Now there’s something at The Cliff that makes it worth leaving the deck in right-centerfield.
— Donald Trump’s Louisville appearance is only 30 minutes away. As the anticipation builds in downtown Louisville, one place where you will not find Trump is at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. The friend of KSR Tweeted this to Mr. Trump before his arrival:

An Ohio farmer shared a similar sentiment in cow manure.
I’ll be down there to witness the circus firsthand. If you see me, come say Hi. Don’t worry, I don’t bite.
