We're talking about practice, and Kentucky fans are loving it.

If you are not going to this year's edition of Big Blue Madness, fear not. The Kentucky Wildcats' first official practice of the 2015-16 college basketball season can be seen live on the SEC Network, the school announced Thursday.

It will mark the first time that BBM will air live and in its entirety on a national TV network. The two-hour show will also stream live via the WatchESPN app on computers, tablets and smartphones. ESPN's Dave O'Brien will be on hand to make the call alongside analysts Sean Farnham and Kara Lawson.

Big Blue Madness will feature introductions of both the men's and women's basketball teams, practice drills, videos and more. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the event will begin at 7 p.m.

Only in Kentucky could something like this be made possible, though we've come to expect things like this with UK basketball being the premier program in college hoops.
