FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas basketball coach John
Pelphrey won't be able to ride with the Navy's Blue Angels because
of his height.
The 6-foot-7 Pelphrey had been picked to fly with the group
Wednesday at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville.
"I did ask if they could make the plane bigger, but I'll have
to live with my disappointment," Pelphrey said. "This is the
first time in my life I've wished I was smaller."
Pelphrey, a former basketball player at Kentucky, is entering
his second season as Arkansas' coach.
