  • COLUMN: Teddy Ballgame did it,...

    When did a defending NCAA champion not qualify the year after?
    Answer? Don’t know, but in 1967 defending champion Texas Western lost in the NCAA’s first round, and runner-up (in ‘66) Kentucky did not make the field at all.
    If once fifth ranked Kentucky does not make the 68-team field next month, here’s an idea based on a precedent set by Teddy Ballgame, Baseball Hall of Famer Ted Williams.

  • COLUMN: Breaking the mold

    If a break-the-mold sports story turns your head the way it does mine, meet Donovan McCoy.
    With a name like that, he has to be a quarterback, right? McCoy passed for almost 3,000 yards and 32 touchdowns in his only year as a starter at Fort Thomas Highlands. He ran for 22 more and the Bluebirds finished another perfect season with a Class 4-A title trophy.
    Donovan McCoy, naturally, was chosen all-state, first team, probably homecoming king, most likely to succeed and a host of other accolades.
    Here comes the best part.

  • COLUMN: Three-star prospect...

    Glass half full.
    In the aftermath of an NFL season made tiresome by a media herd enthralled with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and the latest bulletin on Michael Vick’s knee, fans got a Super Bowl worth the price of a television commercial (almost).
    But more, the MVP headed to Disney World owns a name straight out of casting for Godfather IV. Joseph Vincent Flacco.
    From Audubon, N.J., Flacco broke quarterback records for the Fighting Blue Hens at the University of Delaware. Then he paid his earn-your-spurs dues in the NFL for a decade.
