    Spencer County, 13-6 on the season, opened the week by traveling to district rival Shelby County on Wednesday, and it took two extra innings for the Lady Rockets to pull out the 4-3 victory.

  • UK’s Elam knows he has room to...

    Before the Blue-White Game reached halftime, some Kentucky fans were complaining on Twitter about the play of junior nose guard Matt Elam.

    Out of shape. Too upright. Not aggressive. Gets pushed out of the way too easy. Lacks intensity.
    Elam knows the criticism is there. He picked UK over Alabama and during his first two seasons he has not met the lofty expectations most had for him. He filled in as a starter last year after Melvin Lewis was hurt, and this season Kentucky is counting on him to be the man in the middle of the defensive line.
