  • Number called

    Who has ever heard of the phrase "next man up" or "your number has been called?" What do you think those two phrases mean?
    I hear those phrases often in sports when a starter on a team is injured. The phrase means someone has to step up and replace an injured player or step into a role when the need arises. Or, it could mean that someone must embark upon something that might not be the most pleasant thing to do.

  • Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers...

    So what’s coming up?
    Well, for those of us in the throes of cabin fever there’s the Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers first tournament coming up this Sunday, March 13.
    The tournament is appropriately called the “Cabin Fever Open” and is held on Marion County’s Fagan Branch Lake. By being an “open” you don’t have to be a member of Mid-Ky. Bass Anglers to fish, but it’s only $20 to join if you want.

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky is...

    By Larry Vaught

    Most years ESPN analyst Dick Vitale believes 12 to 15 teams might have a reasonable chance to win a national championship. This year, he thinks as many as 25 teams could have a chance to win six straight games in NCAA Tournament play and a national title depending on pairings.
    He believes Kentucky, which has been to the Final Four four of the last five years, is a "dangerous team" again this year despite an inconsistent season filled with various injuries to key players.

  • All alone

    Defensive coordinators despise many things: roughing the passer calls, pass interference calls, face mask calls, just to name a few. However, what many (and me, as a lover of hard-nose defense) may hate and despise the most is a blown coverage. It doesn't matter when it happens (though it'd sting if it occurred in the final minutes in a close game).
