Future May Be Now for Youngest Football Wildcats

Posted: 12/05/2011 - The 2011 Kentucky football season ended in a way that nobody – NOBODY – saw coming, especially before the season began, when your faithful correspondent included this missive within his predictions:

UK Best of Final Four Teams, with No Trophy to Show For It

Updated: 04/05/2011 - I said it prior to Saturday and I’ll say it again: Kentucky is the best team of the Final Four. It’s even more apparent after watching whatever it was that passed for basketball Monday night, in the championship game between Connecticut and Butler at Reliant Arena in Houston.

UK’s Veterans Never Gave Up on Themselves

Posted: 03/29/2011 - Admit it. You wanted DeAndre Liggins gone. On that November, 2008 night in Las Vegas, when he refused Billy Gillispie’s order to check into the Kansas State game, choosing instead to sit on the bench and pout, you threw up your hands in exasperation and demanded that the freshman be kicked off the team.

UK’s Spot in NCAA Tournament Not as Unfair as It May Appear

Posted: 03/14/2011 - Everybody take a breath. You howled over Kentucky’s NCAA tournament draw the moment it flashed across the screen, and likely you’ve been thrashing about ever since.

NCAA Tournament Can Lead to NBA Riches

Posted: 02/28/2011 - Watching from afar as the Knicks, Nuggets and, to a lesser extent, the Timberwolves conducted their recent NBA trade business, I couldn’t help but think of the day Chauncey Billups got paid. I was there to see it.

Cutler, Rodgers Both Suffer Knee-Jerk Slings of Social Media

Posted: 01/24/2011 - It was going to be either Aaron Rodgers or Jay Cutler in the Super Bowl. Only one quarterback would be packing for Arlington; the other would be heading off to the suburb where 30 of 32 NFL teams currently reside: Waiting Until Next Year.

Wildcats Better Than Last Year’s Team? Stop…

Updated: 01/20/2011 - Can we stop now? Can we stop with the comparisons to last year’s team? And the laughable notion that this year’s Kentucky team is better? If a second straight road loss, to an Alabama team that lost to St. Peter’s, isn’t evidence enough to the contrary, what is?

DeQuin Evans’ Story Straight Out of Compton – and Hollywood

Posted: 12/09/2010 - DeQuin Evans, then a grocery bagger in Compton, California, went to the movies. The film? “The Gridiron Gang,” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a probation officer at Camp Kilpatrick, a juvenile detention center in Malibu.

Get to Know Your Football Wildcats – This Saturday

Updated: 09/21/2010 - Whether you’re sitting in your recliner at home, chowing down on wings at your favorite establishment, or watching in sweaty Gainesville, it’s a pretty good bet we’ll know more about the football Wildcats by the end of the night than we do right now.

From the Sidelines - UK Football Personnel

Posted: 08/25/2010 - There may be just as many questions surrounding the 2010 season opener at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium as there are fans sitting in a stadium expanded by about half as many seats.
