  • COLUMN: Rupp Arena’s Gentlemen’s...

    Rupp Arena was transformed last weekend into a Gentlemen’s Quarterly. Billy Donovan almost hurried to congratulate Kentucky’s coach and players after Florida cost itself a possible number one seed in the NCAAs.
    Seven points up, the Gators squandered possessions, fired blanks and lost more than Kentucky won.
    Typically, the dean of SEC coaches made no excuses, but instead praised the Wildcats.

  • SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Season starts...

    Most people are anxious for spring, but Jimmy Thompson may be more eager than most. All winter he’s been waiting for the weather to warm up so his Spencer County Lady Bears softball team can take the field for a season that he anticipates could be the best in years.

  • Bears baseball starts season 1-1

    Twenty-one teams from Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee have signed up for the country’s first commercial fishing tournament for Asian carp. The Carp Madness Tournament is being held at Kentucky and Barkley lakes in western Kentucky March 12-13.
    “Our goal is simple: We want to purge 100 tons of carp from two of the state’s best fishing lakes,” said Ron Brooks, fisheries director for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • COLUMN: Basketball old-timer...

    A grizzled septuagenarian basketball fan looked out over his coffee cup the other day and said, “Y’know, I’ve lived long enough to have seen just about everything.”
    Maybe. Maybe not.
    Dateline: Pyongyang. When an ex-basketball flake with barbed wire hanging from his lips and nose makes himself USA’s ambassador to North Korea, my 75-year-old pal has plenty of new stuff to look forward to.

  • COLUMN: Wildcats seem impressive...

    What a difference a few months can make. Remember back in October when preseason magazines hit the shelves and most of them had this region as ground zero for basketball dominance? Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky were ranked by many pundits as the top three teams in the country and it harkened many fans back to the ‘70s and ‘80s when all three schools were consistently national contenders.
