  • Indians rally for 14-13 victory...

    Entering the fourth quarter, Spencer County appeared to be headed for their fourth victory of the season as they led 5A Montgomery County 13-0.

    Observations as college football nears its midway mark.

    Commonwealth’s Top Shelf: University of Cumberlands Patriots 5-0; Centre College Prayin’ Colonels 5-0. And Eastern Kentucky tightened a grip on first place in the OVC.

    University of Kenyucky? Still clawing for respect, but still half dozen Randall Cobbs short of rare air that is the Southeastern Conference penthouse. The high roller apartments where three of America’s top four teams live – Florida, Alabama and LSU.

    Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

    With last Saturday’s fiasco(s) in mind, a twist on a Thomas Paine refrain. “These are the times that try men’s soles.”

    Pummeled by Florida, and Utah and Navy respectively, will the Wildcats, Cards and Hilltoppers pack up their cleats and beat a hasty retreat to the rear?

    Could be.
