If you wanna listen to last night's show, where Glenn from A Sea of Blue joins us to discuss Kentucky football and basketball, give it a whirl. You'll have to forgive my persistent cough and aloof mental state, however; my allergies are winning the war against my sinuses.

Kentucky Continues Preparation for Ole Miss |
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky football team continued its preparation for its match up on Saturday with Southeastern Conference foe Ole Miss by holding a two-hour workout at the Nutter Training Facility practice fields on a picture-perfect autumn morning Tuesday in Lexington, Ky.

I dunno. I just know that they're good at tennis and will win a lot of matches for us this year.
