• Conflict

    Conflict is an inevitable part of people’s nature. It is both a blessing and a curse to have conflict. It can be both beneficial and harmful to have a difference of opinion.
    That is the nature of who we are. Different opinions provide opportunities to reach positive and long-lasting outcomes, benefiting not only our own interests, but the interests of other people. We have the potential to use our differences to better the world in which we live, and it’s up to us to determine what course of action we will take.

    By Larry Vaught

    Ask former Kentucky basketball coach Joe Hall who did as much — or maybe more — to help develop UK fan support and he has a quick answer.
    “Oscar Combs did more to develop fan support than anybody. He did a service for the University of Kentucky that could not have been bought at any price,” said Hall.

  • Big time moves

    As you can tell by the title, I’m most likely going to write about the NBA free agency. And yes, you would be correct though I’m also going to discuss a topic that has been revived due to free agency moves.

  • Vaught’s Views: Landon Young sees “no ceiling” for Kentucky football

    By Larry Vaught

    He played in all 13 games last year and made six starts at left tackle. Yet junior Landon Young says he only had a “decent season last year” and is hoping to be a much better player for Kentucky this season.

  • Why we play

    We all have something we love to do.
    Whatever it is, something we want to do. We don’t dread it every single day. We enjoy it and we find happiness and satisfaction in doing it.
    Odds are, most sports players are playing because they want to play. They play because they see it as a way of life and apart of who they are. The crack of a bat, the crunch of pads and the sound of dribbling a ball hold a dear place in their heart.

  • Vaught’s Views: Experience, talent gives Calipari a “little bit of everything” on next year’s team

    By Larry Vaught

    Many college basketball analysts projected before the start of the 2017-18 season that SEC basketball would be even better in 2018-19.
    The SEC sent a conference-record eight teams to the NCAA Tournament last year, but preseason projections make it seem like this year could indeed be even better with Kentucky No. 1 in most early preseason polls, Tennessee in the top five and Auburn in the top 10. LSU, Mississippi State and Florida are all in some top 25 polls.

  • Just a Rookie

    I remember when I first started covering sports here at the Enterprise back in August of 2015. I was a junior at Marion County High School and I had never written for a news publication, much less touched a camera. To say I was a newbie in the journalism field at that time would be an understatement.
    It was definitely a new experience for me and, since it was new, it was a challenge for me at first. I had to grasp the language and format of journalism and I had to understand how to use a camera.

    By Larry Vaught

    It’s not a trip for everyone, but for Western Hills standout Wandale Robinson it was a long trip that was worth every mile he spent on the road.

    He recently made an unofficial visit to Ohio State to visit with the coaches. He then headed to Florida State for another unofficial visit and worked out there. He came back home to Frankfort through Alabama and made a stop there to see coach Nick Saban and his staff. His performance there was impressive enough to get him a scholarship offer from Alabama.

  • Vaught’s Views: UK commit Tyrese Maxey impressive with team USA but excited for senior season

    By Larry Vaught

    Despite injuring his ankle in a pool play win over Puerto Rico, Kentucky commit Tyrese Maxey certainly made a big impression with his play for Team USA in the FIBA Americas Championship.
    Maxey admitted playing with so many talented players was fun and enabled him to expand his game in various ways. However, he said he would have no trouble going back to Texas to play his senior season at South Garland High School.
