| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Saturday, Nov. 19 is going to be quite a day for UK Athletics. The men's basketball, football and women's basketball teams are all going to be in action within a five-hour time period beginning at noon. I've decided to be ambitious and attempt to cover (and live blog) all three events from back in Lexington, Ky., even though only one of the three events is at home.

Here's how I'm going to be spending my day:

11:40 a.m. - 12:21 p.m. - Men's basketball focus

Location - My living room

Computer No. 1 - Live blogging

Computer No. 2 - Watching men's basketball vs. Penn State on ESPN3

I'm going to be starting my day in the comforts of my living room. The special live blog will kick off 20 minutes before tip-off of the men's basketball game against Penn State and I will be joined by Eric Lindsey of CoachCal.com, who will be live in Uncasville, Conn. The live blog will open with a preview of the entire day.

Once the game gets started, I'm going to use a second laptop to watch UK-Penn State on ESPN3 while I live blog from the other. For the first 20 minutes or so of the game, we'll be offering our normal play-by-play and analysis of the game.

12:21 p.m. - 2 p.m. - Football kicks off, things get crazy

Location - My living room

Computer No. 1 - Live blogging

Computer No. 2 - Watching men's basketball vs. Penn State on ESPN3

Television - Tuned to football at Georgia on the SEC Network

With my computer still logged on to ESPN3, I'll tune my television to the SEC Network for the 12:21 p.m. kickoff of UK-Georgia.  While both games are going on, we'll be offering regular updates and analysis of both games, but not a full play-by-play.

2 p.m. - 4 p.m. - Move to Memorial Coliseum

Location - Memorial Coliseum

Computer No. 1 - Live blogging

Computer No. 2 - Watching football at Georgia on ESPN3

This is where things get a little tricky. Fortunately, I live less than five minutes away from Memorial Coliseum, so when the men's basketball game is over, I'll take a quick break from the live blog to drive over for the women's basketball game against Southern Miss.

When I get there, I'll take my seat courtside where I'll (hopefully) have an open spot next to me to set up my second laptop to keep tabs on the football game against Georgia. Until 3 p.m., I'll be focusing solely on the football game, at which point UK Hoops' matchup with Southern Mississippi will begin.

4 p.m. - 5 p.m. - UK Hoops takes center stage

Location - Memorial Coliseum

Computer No. 1 - Live blogging

When the football game at Georgia ends between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., the live blog will shift complete focus to the women's basketball game against Southern Mississippi until its conclusion. Following the end of the live blog, we'll have postgame coverage of all three games on both Cat Scratches and UKathletics.com

7 p.m. - ??? - Sleep

Location - My bed
