  • COLUMN: Chapel Hill to Nashville...

    We arrive at a place in winter when fans aligned with a college team in Kentucky can bask a little, brag a little, second guess a little, plan a little and expect a lot more.

    In Lexington it’s mid-sweetheart month and the Wildcats have been all that. With a run of 17 wins in a-row, Kentucky is pontiff of all it surveys once more. A lofty perch in the national pecking order of underling courtiers called Duke, Syracuse and North Carolina. A condo Big Blue Nation tax payers expect to occupy every winter.

  • COLUMN: The state's feel-...

    Western Kentucky University has been struck by an occupier movement. Fans of a Topper team that has won three of four, want interim removed from coach Ray Harper’s job title. The team transformation since Harper took over a month ago is becoming a feel-good story to rival Murray State’s No. 9 ranking and 23-0 streak, and Kentucky’s climb to No. 1.
    Harper’s Hilltoppers have shown new energy, grit and growing confidence not seen before. The coach’s rotation seems to have sent morale soaring, too.
