LEXINGTON, Ky. — “Wildcat Wednesdays,” an eight-week series of live chats with UK’s coaches and players, will resume this Wednesday at noon with quarterback Mike Hartline and offensive tackle Zipp Duncan.
Hartline and Duncan, who will begin fall practice next week, will join Cat Scratches, the official blog of UK Athletics, for 30-45 minutes to talk about the upcoming football season, their expectations for this season and more. Fans can join the chat by submitting their questions and comments on the live blog, pending approval.
Hartline is coming off a sophomore campaign in which he threw for 1,666 yards and nine touchdowns on 176-of-317 passing. He heads into fall practice as the leader for the starting quarterback position.
Duncan will be responsible for protecting Hartline’s blindside. After two seasons at left guard, the senior offensive lineman will take over this season at the left tackle position. Duncan has played in 38 career games, making 26 consecutive starts.
Wednesday’s chat with Hartline and Duncan will be the seventh segment of an eight-part series with UK players and coaches. Next week will conclude the live chats.
