For the 10th time, the NASCAR Monster Energy Series takes to Kentucky Speedway this afternoon for the Quaker State 400. I know I am not in the minority of not being as big of a NASCAR fan as I once was, but I know for certain I will be tuned into this evening’s race. Last…

The 4th of July has come and gone, but my head is still rattling with the banging of fireworks. I spent last night watching surrounding homes shoot off fireworks across the clear Kentucky sky. Here’s to hoping you had a safe and enjoyable celebration yesterday, as well. Now onto the news and notes you need…

Makur Maker’s surprise commitment shouldn’t really be a surprise at all. It’s 4 a.m. and Makur Maker just committed to Howard From a basketball standpoint, yes, it’s odd to see a five-star talent pick Howard University over the likes of Kentucky, UCLA, Memphis and many others. The G League, too. Maker is the highest-ranked player…

It’s been too long since society could kick back, relax, and get way too nervous and a little too competitive over the outcome of a game. Some sports – including NASCAR, the NWSL, horse racing and Korean baseball – have already made their return. Other sports – including the NBA and the MLB – have…

There are three key facts you should know about me: I’m 21 years old, I love sports, and I really, really love baseball. In fact, I think it’s the greatest sport ever invented. Not many people still think that, and very few of them are my age. But it’s true. I love baseball like a…

Her hiring follows a team scandal in May that resulted in the firing of coaches including head coach Jomo Thompson, who led Kentucky – the winningest cheerleading program…

John Calipari fits rules around him like a belt. Wherever the market is for top players, Calipari owns it. But Reid Travis and Nate Sestina just don’t ring like “John Wall.” Following Wall in 2009, Anthony Davis and Nerlens Noel also took the top spot in 2011 and 2012 – three of Calipari’s first four…

Make sure that you listen to the Josh Minton interview. He is a great kid and I found his comments very funny, including his beat boxing for the public. His nickname that I have coined, “Grandmaster Minton” will have to stick if he keeps that up. And kudos again to Rob, who called that pick…

It’s nice to see John Pelphrey get off to a fast start this basketball season at the University of South Alabama. The former “Unforgettable” took over the lifeless program four years ago and has compiled a 36 and 48 record in his first three seasons. However, this year the team has started out 6 and…

Kentucky Sports Radio learned a valuable lesson tonight as we attempted our first ever taping outside in front of Rupp Arena. Now some of you may wonder, “why with no events going on in Rupp would you decide to tape outside in the cold?” I have no idea the answer to that question. However since…

So lets get right to the point…who is going to be the Y in the halftime spelling of Kentucky this weekend? Sure, Ashley Judd is the favorite for any game of this magnitude. However, since we have already used her at least once this season, let me drop a nomination for you: Wynona Judd. Ashley…

When basketball fans think about the trademarks of a Rick Pitino-coached basketball team, the first one that generally comes to mind is the vaunted full court press. This is despite the fact that his most successful teams have actually concentrated more on half court man to man defense. Nevertheless, I think it is quite possible…

The Heat’s hiring of Pat Riley may have been good news for a number of Heat fans and players, but likely no one will be benefited more than the Cats’ own Gerald Fitch. For those of you that remember, Riley is the reason that Fitch is in the NBA, spotting him during his time at…

Fear not Kentucky fans as Saturday could help give this season a complete 180 and…
