  • COLUMN: Kentucky was ‘Dean...

    Kentucky’s season began with a number one ranking and a coach letting words 40-and-0 pass from his lips.
    Two months in, a late game chant from North Carolina students at Dean Dome in Chapel Hill last week: “Overrated! Overrated.”
    Suddenly, a happy Christmas season for Kentucky fans is looking more like a lump of coal.
    Big Blue Nation grows restless as the stat watchers are moved to dredge up these less-than-pleasant numbers.

  • COLUMN: Spencer has been tough...

    In just four years, Collins High School in Shelby County has risen to be one of the perennial powers in Class 4A football in Kentucky. They’ve advanced deep into the playoffs each season, last season making it to the championship game, and this year claiming the title with a 38-35 win over favored Ft. Thomas Highlands.

  • Lady Bears to host Holiday...

    In years past, the Spencer County Lady Bears have traveled away from home during the holiday break for various basketball tournaments. This year, they are hosting one of their own that will also serve as a fundraiser for the program.
    Coach David Marion said he is hoping for a successful tournament this year as a way to boost the program, get some quality teams to come to Taylorsville and hopefully provide area basketball fans with some entertaining hoops action.

  • Bears fall to Waggener, 73-63

    The Spencer County Bears opened their season last Monday night with a 73-63 loss at home to Waggener. It was the first game for new coach Jason Burns, and while he would have preferred a victory, the outing did signal an exciting brand of basketball from a young team that won’t easily give up.

  • Runners represent Spencer at AAU...

    Seven Spencer County runners competed at the AAU National Cross Country Meet at Fort Gordon, Ga., this past weekend. These runners are part of the Kentucky Elite Running Club, a team of select runners from around the state of Kentucky. The meet was attended by teams from Florida, Ohio, Georgia, New York, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, California and more.
    Local donations paid for the runners meals during this three-day trip.
    Results for the Spencer County runners are as follows:

  • COLUMN: Blue Tisdale &...

    While the national media gnashes its teeth about Kobe Bryant’s come-back, Robinson Cano’s bank roll, and Jameis Winston’s well-being (sniff), let us visit the Department of Amazing: Bowling Green High’s football team won a third straight state championship last weekend. The Purples finished 14-0. Bowling Green has a 44-game win streak.
    Last time the Purples didn’t win a game, star running back with a marvelous name, Blue Tisdale, was in seventh grade. Amazing.

  • COLUMN: The man is Cauley-Stein

    Kentucky’s gritty test against Providence on the road was no more than demonstration how superior talent prevails over team.
    The Wildcats face a string of legitimate opponents this month who won’t be impressed by tiresome media swoon and TV analytic blow-hards creating a stardom level to exhaust even the wonderfully gifted Julius Randle.
    Reality we saw: The Man on Kentucky’s McDonalds all-team is not Randle, nor the Harrison twins or trigger-itch James Young. It’s sophomore Willie Cauley-Stein.

  • COLUMN: There’s no reality TV...

    For the last 20 years, television producers have squeezed their last ounce of creativity and, in some cases sanity, to develop the latest craze in reality television. But despite all their efforts, they’ll never match the unscripted excitement, unpredictability and drama of televised sporting events.
    For proof, talk to anyone who was watching the Alabama-Auburn football game Saturday evening.
