  • Turn off experts and examine your favorite team's Valentine

    If ball sports make your heart throb, then February 2011 will be your valentine.

    Wednesday. While we watch, first day of the rest of their lives for next wave of sleeper stars (Randall Cobb), Heisman hopefuls, Outland dreamers and Tom Brady wannabes.
    Monday-through-Saturday this week?

    Western ... Louisville ... Kentucky.

    Encore. Peyton Siva and Louisville showed a collective valentine at UConn last week. Will February be a staging area for another Big East title run?

  • Recruits bring hype, but basketball still a team sport

    HYPE AND HOOPS

    High School basketball used to be huge in Kentucky. It still is in some corners, but it seems the only way to fill up a high school gymnasium these days is to lure some big-name college recruits and bank on fans of a prospect’s future college buying up the tickets.

  • As season continues, Bears earning respect

    Spencer County’s 67-51 win over Collins last week was big for a number of reasons. It was the first ever match-up between the Bears and the new school, it was a big district win and put the Bears in the driver’s seat for the top seed in the district tournament next month.

  • Randall Cobb and Charlie Strong: Noteworthy men from opposite sides

    “One thing Coach (Randy) Sanders always talks about is making memories,” Randall Cobb said last week. “I have made many with my teammates, coaches, administration, and fans that I will never forget.”

    Ah, the college experience.

    Probably Cobb made a diary notation also for Saturday January 15, 2011.

  • COLUMN: Bears will learn a lot over the next two weeks

    With only about four weeks left in the regular season, the Spencer County Bears are about to embark on the stretch of their season that may signal whether they are really contenders, or just pretenders.

    As of Monday, they shared the top spot in the 8th region with Collins, with both the Bears and Titans sporting 13-4 records. Those two teams were to play Tuesday night in Shelbyville with the winner likely to get the top seed in the 30th district tournament next month.

  • Looking ahead, looking behind

    "Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning, but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.” – Hal Borland, writer

    Year-ender things.

    2010 had high and low lights and a few in between.

    Never mind the latter, savor the former.

    A few of mine.
