  • COLUMN: Davis is a marvel, but...

    John Grisham knows and you know every good drama has its defining moments. Sports seasons do, too, and No. 1 ranked Kentucky has had enough already to make a novel.
    • December 3, 2011, via CBS, college basketball discovered a new household word not named Sullinger, Harrison Barnes or whoever Duke’s newest star is. North Carolina’s John Henson rose up from 10 feet to pop an all-but-certain game winner at Rupp Arena. Anthony Davis introduced himself.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky celebrates...

    Numero Uno in January:
    Murray State is the lone unbeaten team in the land at 20-0.
    Bellarmine’s defending D-2 national champion Knights are 17-1 and on the road to Southern Indiana and Kentucky Wesleyan.
    And, the Kentucky Wildcats are atop the polls again. A win at Georgia would make John Calipari’s team 6-0 in SEC play for first time in nine seasons.
    How does Number One talk translate at the barbershop in January?
    • Fan buzz. “Shut up and lemme talk about the Cats!”

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Eagle...

    The bow of the CQ Princess barely cleared the no-wake zone at Kenlake State Resort Park Marina when Lake Barkley State Park Naturalist Mary Schmidt spotted them.
    “There are two juvenile eagles to our right,” she announced over a microphone on the second deck of the excursion yacht. The mottled brown plumage of the birds showed their youth as bald eagles don’t develop that familiar white head until roughly age 5.

  • COLUMN: When your picks finish...

    Ever have a weekend when, to borrow a horse racing analogy, all your picks hit the finish line first? Sure you have.
    A perfect weekend...
