    This year's college basketball has been full of upsets. On Saturday, No. 1 Oklahoma lost to unranked Kansas State and then hours later, No. 2 North Carolina fell to unranked Notre Dame. Iowa State upset Oklahoma (which was ranked No. 1 here as well) on Jan. 19. No. 25 South Carolina took down No. 8 Texas A&M on Feb. 6.
    What's causing all these upsets?
    Is it a lack of preparedness?
    Or, more energy from the underdogs?

  • High coyotes, Punxtawny Phil and...

    Just saw something on Facebook that I thought was interesting. And, as you know, if it’s on Facebook it just has to be true!
    Anyway, coyotes in Northern California have seemingly lost their fear of anything. Reports have them walking in roadways stopping traffic. Apparently, drivers out there don’t understand the principle of “road kill.”
    After researching this phenomena the “experts” determined the coyotes might be high on hallucinogenic mushrooms. They even specified the mushroom as the “amanita muscaria!”

    For the third straight season, Kentucky will have a new offensive coordinator. Once again, even returning starters have to prove they deserve to be on the field.
    “Every position on offense has to be wide open,” new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran said. “When I started, I told (the players) you're going to start building your resume. I'm looking for accountability and dependability. It doesn't matter to me (who plays).
