Go ahead and call in sick to work tomorrow, we’ve got some reminiscing to do.
Kentucky Athletics is in control of the SEC Network all day Thursday, July 8, in what is being dubbed “Takeover Day”. The festivities begin right at 12:00 a.m. EST tonight with Women’s Gymnastics before finishing up at 9:00 p.m. EST with Kentucky’s Taxslayer Gator Bowl win over N.C. State this past season.
The day-long event includes basketball, softball, swimming and diving, volleyball, and more, along with a few UK-related SEC Storied replays featuring the 1978 men’s national champions, Sam Bowie, and Bernadette Locke-Mattox. The Kentucky Football Spring football All-Access show will re-air at 4:30 a.m.
Personally, I’m most excited to watch the 3:30 p.m. timeslot when Rhyne Howard and the Kentucky WBB squad take down Arkansas 75-64 from December 2020. Howard went for 24 points and 10 rebounds in what was a top-15 matchup at the time.
We’re taking over @SECNetwork tomorrow: Thursday, July 8!
