Meanwhile, we're only 34.5 hours away from football time in the Bluegrass, so let's get to it, shall we?

Brace yourselves for pregame coverageMark Stoops and staff are closing up shop until kickoff, so there won't be a media availability today, but don't worry; we'll have plenty of material to get you ready for tomorrow's game, including KyWildcatsTV's hype video, which will drop at some point today. Here's a sneak peek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6t67nXpRU0 If that didn't get you in the mood for tomorrow's season opener vs. Southern Miss, this beautiful picture of the sunset over Commonwealth Stadium last night will: [caption id="attachment_206008" align="alignnone" width="2048"] @KyWildcatsTV[/caption] If you haven't made it your wallpaper yet, well, you can't call yourself a Kentuckian. Just kidding. Kind of.
The KSR staff season predictions will be released at noonAfter much arm-twisting, I got the entire KSR staff to send in their predictions for the season. Check in at noon to see how we all think the season will go. Spoiler: no one's picking us to beat Alabama.
So, Lamar Jackson looked really good last nightLouisville's quarterback set a school record with 8 touchdowns and 405 offensive yards...BY HALFTIME. Sure, Charlotte is Charlotte, a team Kentucky beat 58-10 last season, but still, the Cards looked mighty impressive. Long way to go until November 26, but man, Jackson is good. And yes, I'll admit this made me laugh:
Danville vs. Boyle is tonightTonight is a big night for high school football across the state, but if you ask me, no game is bigger than the Danville vs. Boyle County Titletown showdown. Led by senior QB Zach Dampier, Danville is legit this season, and this may be the Admirals' best chance to knock off Boyle after losing seven of the last eight matchups. Go Ads! I'll be there in spirit. Other notable games:
- Trinity (2-0) vs. Lafayette (2-0)
- St.Xavier (1-0) vs. Bowling Green (2-0)
- Scott County (2-0) vs. Highlands (1-1)
- Paintsville (2-0) vs. Pikeville (2-0)
The trailer for "Mascots" looks awesomehttps://youtu.be/swTWozTxQ-E Christopher Guest's latest "mockumentary" comes out on Netflix on October 13. I've been a huge fan of Guest's for years. I'll never forget the first time my brother-in-law (then my sister's boyfriend) showed me "This is Spinal Tap"; that started a love affair with Guest's films, notably "Best in Show" and "Waiting for Guffman." "A Mighty Wind" is good too, but "Mascots" looks flat out awesome. I can't think of a better way to spend the night before Big Blue Madness than watching it with the fam in Kentucky.
