it is time for the annual tradition of the first real snow of the year being forecast, and people going out and stocking up for the pending winter freeze that will keep them trapped in their homes for weeks on end.  Just a bit of hyperbole there, but it is funny to see the city's lose their mind in preparation.

I am in Knoxville and they are forecasting 1-2 inches, not feet, inches.  The county schools and surrounding counties have already called off school.




  • Kentucky Football has announced two more mid-year enrollees in Quarterback Stephen Johnson II, and Defensive Tackle Naquez Pringle.  Nearly every single player enrolling early is going to be a significant contributor. I plan to write more about this later, but I think Johnson may end up being our starting Quarterback.
  • Senior Alex Poythress has been named one of 30 finalists for the Senior CLASS award.  The award is an all encompassing honor for senior athletes who stayed in school to graduate and used their platform for a positive community impact.

  • College Football Hall of Famer, and Kentucky Wildcat, Lou Michaels has passed away at the age of 80. Michaels was a fantastic Tackle for UK beginning in 1954.  Michaels was all-conference, an All-America, and an All-Pro in the NFL.
  • Matt Jones of KSR got into a sort of sparring match with Paul Finebaum yesterday, check out the breakdown here.


  • ESPN is continuing their all-time ranking by going with the top 10 Centers of all-time.  Spoiler alert, Wilt Chamberlain is NOT the #1... which is surprising.
  • Former Pittsburgh Steeler Antwan Randle El has come out and said he regrets playing Football due to the day to day struggles the 36 year old has.  He said if he could do it again, he would choose Baseball.


  • McDonalds has tweeted out a new concoction called McChoco Potatoes, not kidding.  They are french fries drizzled in chocolate.  No thanks.
  • If your skin crawls when you see a creepy crawly in your home, you may not want to read this.  A new study delves into the kinds of creepy crawlies you may be living with and not even know it.
