  • Home run pitch: Calipari fouls...

    Mixing metaphors ... gopher balls, basketballs and money.
    Best home run pitch question for a ball coach in February?

    My vote goes to one from a reporter to John Calipari last week. “What do you think of the officiating in the SEC?”

    Was this a Ralph Terry fast ball to Bill Mazeroski all over again?

  • UK fans: Road loss woes are old...

    Reality check of Kentucky basketball’s road woes?

    The Spencer County Lady Bears picked up two wins but suffered two more losses in the last week as they wind down the regular season.
