This Just Happened, a weekly roundup

My tailgate yesterday at Commonwealth. Banner Raised. 
News from around the site and the Commonwealth, brought together just for you! At Commonwealth Stadium last night, Kentucky was manhandled by an incredibly strong Alabama team. We knew this season would be tough, yet I'm hoping we rebound for a good second half of the season after the coming bye week. On another note, I convinced a couple of 'Bama fans to enjoy their stay in Lexington a little longer (and not make the trip to Louisville). I hope they enjoy Keeneland today as well as all the historic sites in downtown Lexington. All part of #sharethelex, baby.

Now, for the roundup:
