UK has announced the date, time, and location for the 2016 Football Fan Day. This is an event that I have seen grow over the last couple of years and expect that to continue on August 6th. They begin with autographs from players and coaches from 9 – 10:15 AM. After the autograph session you’ll be able to watch Kentucky practice on the new practice fields at 11. I encourage everyone to go see the team and show your support for these young men.

In 1988 Yordanka Donkova, go ahead and do yourself a favor and Google image search her, ran the 100 meter hurdle in 12.21 seconds. I admittedly wouldn’t know if that was good or not if it wasn’t for her holding the world record. Holding that record until yesterday. Kendra Harrison, who ran for Kentucky and won a championship for indoor/outdoor short hurdles just last year, competed at the Diamond League London Anniversary Games this weekend. When it came time for the 100 meter hurdle event in Olympic Stadium, Kendra was more than ready! She blasted past everyone and took home the win while breaking the 28 year old world record! Her 12.20 record will be in the books and if the duration of the last record shows us anything, it’s that this one may last even longer.
SEC Network has UK takeover day on Wednesday. The schedule looks packed and I will definitely be setting my DVR.
It looks like at least one kid really liked his time at Kentucky’s camps this past weekend. Clevan Thomas was touted as one of the best performers during the camps and has now committed to play for Stoops. It looks like a good get for the talent spotting crew of Kentucky, now we will see if we can keep him.
