    Spencer County’s Allie Stevens battles for possession during early action Tuesday night in a game against Anderson County. The Lady Bears fell 4-2 and saw their record fall to 4-9 on the year. The girls lost 6-1 to Bardstown and 3-0 to Lexington Christian last week. The Lady Bears started the season full of promise but injuries to key players have been brutal. One bright spot Monday night was the return of senior McKenna Pfeiffer, who returned for the first time since suffering a severely broken leg six months ago.

    If you’re a serious football fan, you know the name Walter Payton. He gained yards, he scored touchdowns, he had nicknames like “Sweetness” and his image adorned posters from coast to coast.
    Any newspaper story or television report about a Chicago Bears game from the mid 70s through most of the 80s included plenty of information about how Payton played, how many yards he gained, how many times he crossed the goal line.

  • COLUMN: WKU’s Taggart dials up a Flutie moment

    While all around Willie Taggart were swept up in jubilation, most willing to settle for PAT forcing another overtime at Kentucky, the coach had slowed it all down. Mayhem was theirs, quietude amid the madness was his. This coach saw a carpe diem moment.
    A sparkle danced in Taggart’s eyes. ESPN was here. An SEC opponent was here (on the ropes), WKU’s faithful was here (at the threshold of a nervous breakdown). And, somewhere out there, I suggest, Doug Flutie was here in spirit and whispered into Taggart’s ear, “this is it, man!”
