  • Running backs in the Bluegrass

    With due respect to the national landscape and its Heisman candidates, a genuflect this week please, for running backs in Kentucky.
    In Bowling Green, Western Kentucky’s Bobby Rainey is a national running back of the week after a three-touchdown and 206-rushing-yards showing at Hilltopper homecoming last week. He had 99 yards in the fourth quarter pacing Western to a home win for the first time since Mr. Obama was a senator.

  • COLUMN: Fans make Big Blue...

    Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness was all that again ... with a hiccup or two.
    By their standing-room-only presence in Rupp Arena on a night in the middle of football season, Wildcat basketball fans renewed their all-out allegiance to all-things-Calipari.
    It was a spectacle. Never mind slide-show foul-ups.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky football needs...

    The Southeastern Conference is better than ever at the top – LSU and Alabama, 1-2 in America; solid in the middle – South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida and Auburn; and poised to break out – Tennessee and Mississippi State, even Vanderbilt. At the bottom, Kentucky has been awful.
    Unvarnished truths at midseason.
    Kentucky’s record is 2-4, but seems worse. Two touchdowns scored in last 12 quarters of football while surrendering 48, 35 and 54 points is unacceptable and ruinous.
