Coach Cal's fantasy camp kicks off today. I'm sure most of you don't care about a bunch of old guys with money at an adult basketball camp at UK, but the weekend does produce a lot of fun stuff from the former players who are in town to help out. We have several KSR writers on the scene to take pictures and share stories from whatever occurs at the Joe Craft Center, and if history repeats itself, we'll see some great behind-the-scenes content of the Wildcats, both new and old. Do you have your tickets to the alumni game? There are still plenty of great options and you'd be crazy not to get in there. The team Ryan and I drafted will obviously win the Legends game against Matt and Shannon's team, and then the roster for the main event is insane. Here's a look at everyone we expect to participate in the big game, in some form:
  • Derek Anderson
  • Keith Bogans
  • Ramel Bradley
  • Rex Chapman
  • Erik Daniels
  • Tony Delk
  • Jamaal Magloire
  • Mychal Mulder
  • Antoine Walker
  • Anthony Davis
  • DeMarcus Cousins
  • Rajon Rondo
  • Darius Miller
  • Eric Bledsoe
  • Jamal Murray
  • Alex Poythress
  • Joe Crawford
  • Karl-Anthony Towns
Dwane Casey and Walter McCarty will coach the two teams. Get your tickets here. No football updates today. UK had originally planned to open its doors to the media today, but practice is expected to run on into the evening so the interview session has been canceled. That means no new football news today, barring anything major. To make up for the absence of Friday football updates, we told Nick Roush he has to produce several in-depth articles or he has to run hills all weekend. Be on the lookout for those articles -- or Roush running hills. Kentucky's SEC basketball schedule came out yesterday. I ranked the nine home games: And the nine away games: Speaking of the road games, Texas A&M has the largest on-campus video board in basketball: Rex Chapman got HOT in his game of CATS with PJ Washington.  But did he win? The KSR restaurant bracket continues today. We're at Oxmoor Country Club for the KSR golf scramble and we'll spend some time narrowing the restaurant field on the show. Tune in!

Luckett's Locks: Thin Slate

A best bet finally cashed for Luckett's Locks in Week 7, but it did not get us to a winning weekend. It's been that kind of year. Following a 3-4 against the spread (ATS) mark, our season record has fallen to 19-25-2 overall. However, six games...
