Good morning, BBN. Yesterday was a bright spot in what’s been a dismal month for sports. Watching the replay of the Kentucky/Michigan Final Four game from 2014 got me fired up.

I can’t be the only one that wakes up every morning hoping that this has just been a horrible nightmare and that we are still, in fact, right in the heat of March Madness. Instead, we enter another day of sportless America. Personally, I find myself with way too much free time. I look over…

via @UKMBB Instagram What a week it’s been, Big Blue Nation. We’ve officially made it through four days in this new reality of a sport-less world, of which I am most certainly not a fan. There’s no SEC Championship nor Selection Sunday show today. There’s no Round of 64 coming later this week. All that’s…

We have rabid fans here in the Bluegrass state, but we do have to acknowledge that sometimes we can be beaten out by other teams. I mean, when was the last time we desecrated a famous monument in Lexington in order to show support for the Cats? Give it up for these Illinois fans who…
