  • COLUMN: A fantastic Final Four

    No one could have predicted the Final Four that begins play this weekend with 11 seed Virginia Commonwealth matched up with 8th seed Butler. Well, that’s not exactly true. Of the 5.9 million bracket entries collected by ESPN, two people did actually pick these four teams. Odds are, those brackets were filled out after tossing some darts or by an old lady in North Dakota who was bored with her daily crossword puzzle.

  • COLUMN: Soaring Kentucky heads...

    The commonwealth’s big triple?
    The only way last weekend could have been My-Old-Kentucky-Home-better would be if Happy Chandler were here to sing our song, and my Corbin friend Malcolm Pace had a microphone to say, “Boys, it don’t get no better than this.”
    Pikeville College is king of NAIA. Bears are national champions.
    Bellarmine is king of NCAA Division II. Knights are national champions.
    And, East Region champion Kentucky is headed to the Final Four.
