UK fans, take note...

From the Herald-Leader:
Tom Leach and Jeff Piecoro will call Kentucky's game against Florida State in the Music City Bowl.

That leaves UK needing a play-by-play announcer to work with Mike Pratt in the UK-Florida International basketball game.

Among the options being considered are the voice of the Cincinnati Reds, Marty Brennaman, former UK play-by-play man Ralph Hacker and Neil Price, who calls UK women's games.

When UK played Clemson in the Music City Bowl last year, the school moved a scheduled basketball game against Eastern Kentucky. But Florida International had too far to come and plans already made to accommodate a switch.

So UK will play Florida International at a noon tipoff and Florida State on a 4 p.m. kickoff.

You'd think Leach would face a quandary of which game to call if UK played a high-profile basketball opponent. Actually, he had pondered that scenario earlier this season. If Kentucky had played in the SEC football championship game, it would have conflicted with the basketball game against North Carolina.

Leach had decided to work the football game. "You finish what you start," he said.
Expect any game on the Big Blue Radio network to have a short post game show followed by the pre-game show for the next game.
