    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.

  • Leaves are gone, but it’s...

    Winds blowing straight from Santa Claus’ abode at the North Pole rocketed across Kentucky this past week, bringing with them the start of reservoir smallmouth bass fishing season.
    “From now into late winter, if you can stand it, is the best time of year to catch trophy smallmouth bass,” said John Williams, southeastern fisheries district biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “The whole cold water period of the year is the most productive time for large smallmouths.”

  • COLUMN: Does NFL moniker warrant...

    The power to set the agenda is one that should be exercised with great caution. Unfortunately, that power is too-often placed in the hands and minds of those who would rather push an agenda than simply set it.

  • Bears football wrap-up

    Spencer County Head Football Coach Mike Marksbury has mostly positive reflections of the just-completed 2013 campaign and an even brighter outlook for the future as the Bears already begin work on next season.
    The Bears finished the season with a 6-5 record on the year and a first-round loss to Nelson County in the playoffs, but instead of focusing on the wins and losses, Marksbury said he was proud that his team made week to week improvements in nearly all aspects of the game.

    The 2013 Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championship meet was at EP Tom Sawyer State Park on Saturday. Competition was a lot tougher than the state meet with teams from Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Tennessee. Hunter Wethington placed 14 out of 100 in his age group of 11-year-olds and Tabitha Martin placed 44 out of 117 in the 13-year-old age bracket. Pictured are Tabitha Martin, Hunter Wethington and Coach Billy Talley.
