  • Eureka moment for Calipari

    Opportunity knocks again for John Calipari. Chance to show Kentucky’s fans his I-was-a-kid-once side.

    University of Kentucky-at-Euclid coach and staff will reach out to Wildcat fans next month. $ort of.

    Visits planned to four towns in four days for instructional day camps. Three hour sessions. Your child can attend for $75 each.

    With a brutal economy, does America’s highest paid ball coach and winningest college ball program really need your 75 dollars per kid? A charge that eliminates many kids from the start.

    C’mon, coach.

  • Hard work, competition is healthy

    Since last summer’s unfortunate tragedy involving a PRP football player’s death after a hot day of practice, much attention has been given to the issue of player safety.

    This new focus can certainly lead to some positive changes and renewed emphasis that could prevent future injuries and deaths from occurring, but it’s also a situation that could tempt otherwise well-meaning people to diminish the values that sometimes can only be learned through the sweat of a practice field.
