It’s Thursday, the appetizer for the weekend. This Thursday is extra special because Kentucky fans get to see one of the Big Blue Nation’s best back in action.
Jordan Schultz reports Wan’Dale Robinson is expected to make his 2023 debut when the New York Giants travel to San Francisco for Thursday Night Football. The former Kentucky wide receiver was in the middle of the best game of his young career when he suffered a torn ACL against Detroit in November of 2022. It’s unclear how much he will be utilized, but it’s promising to see Robinson back on the field a little over nine months after suffering a serious injury.
Robinson could have picked a better time to return. Even though the Giants made a furious second half comeback to rally for a win at Arizona, they face a tall task against the best team in the NFL.
The 49ers are 10.5-point favorites (o/u 44) over the Giants. Kickoff is at 8 pm on Amazon Prime. You can watch all of the action at KSBar and Grille where at halftime we’ll be giving away $500 to one lucky customer. Enjoy some football and potentially win some cash. Sounds like a great way to kick off a weekend on a Thursday night.
Kentucky Gears Up for Vanderbilt
Typically Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt doesn’t produce a ton of eye-popping storylines. The game is also not typically played in September (this is just the second non-November game in the series since the 70s).
This year’s game has not one, but two homecomings. Ray Davis will face his former team and Barion Brown returns to his hometown after leaving some plays on the field in last year’s Music City Bowl. On top of all the personal storylines, there’s one big one the UK defense isn’t too shy to talk about: revenge. Vanderbilt put together a four-minute drive to stun the Wildcats with 32 seconds on the clock and snap a 26-game SEC losing streak. The Kentucky defense has not forgotten.
Kentucky RB Ray Davis is Out of Pocket
Normally that phrase is used as a diss (I think; I’m old and don’t know exactly what the kids are saying). This time it means that the Kentucky running back was doing his thing on the SEC Network. The best part, “I was tired.”
One More Conversation with Mark Stoops
The Kentucky head coach will speak with the media one final time before the Cats travel to Nashville to take on the Commodores. Earlier in the week Mark Stoops promised us a Josh Kattus injury update. We’ll learn more about that around 5 pm. Until then, hear what he and Clark Lea had to say during Wednesday’s SEC Coaches Teleconference.
Home Match for Kentucky Women’s Soccer
The Kentucky women’s soccer team is unbeaten in its first eight matches, the longest streak to start the season since 2007. They’ll be put to the test tonight in a doozy at The Bell. No. 7 South Carolina is coming to town for a 7:30 pm EST kickoff. Wear blue, be loud and help the Wildcats get a W.
A New Wrinkle in 11 Personnel
We tried something new last night on 11 Personnel. Things crank up a notch or two or three in SEC play. Not only did we bring the heat and lay out a blueprint for how Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt will unfold, we did it with a special guest. Adam Griggs was the first person to join 11 Personnel for the KSBoard Question of the Week. It was thought-provoking and entertaining. You can join the action next week signing up for a KSR membership. Not only can you steal the spotlight with us, you’ll get access to bonus content, KSBoard and so much more.
