Cuonzo Martin’s abrupt rocky-top exodus on the heels of the Sweet 16 is a tough blow for Tennessee Athletics. It’s bad from a personnel standpoint, obviously, and yet another spill in the PR aisle for the already unsanitary Volunteer Athletic Department as well as the Paid Athletic Department. While the University of Tennessee is unquestionably…

(Keeneland/Coady Photography) You love Keeneland. Yeah, you, look at me when I’m addressing you, please. You love Keeneland because it epitomizes all that is unique and awesome about Central Kentucky. You love Keeneland because it’s a seasonal buffet of your favorite vices all rolled into one stately manor; you don’t feel like you’re actually drunk…

Auburn’s sensational collapse in Gainesville last night was as mystifying as it was predictable. Truly bad teams can find a way to lose an intrasquad scrimmage, let alone in that bee-hive against the nation’s top team. So even though we all saw it coming I don’t think anyone was prepared for the two brand new, never-before-seen…

The reality of a given situation does not always present itself immediately. Our sundry of senses do not automatically keep up with one another, and some of us simply lack any notion of sense altogether. Take a dead body, for instance. Sure, you can look at it and instantly process the grimness at hand, but…

I get lots of compliments on my UK shirt. It’s a real ice-breaker. A bona fide tone-setter. People always ask if they can buy it from me, and some even try to steal it right off my back. One guy even offered up his wife for just one night with my shirt. I’m spoken for,…

In a state steeped in historic duels and family feuds Kentuckians are naturally predisposed for domestic disorder. The modern day affirmation of our civil aversion is of course disguised as a basketball game—the Battle of Bluegrass. It’s a game that has a way of turning sound, rational people into rabid animals; of turning boys into…

The shrinking student attendance issue has been a hot item around here in recent weeks and everybody’s weighing in—from the media, to the fans and of course the students themselves. But one particular demographic has been largely quiet, until now. I’m talking of course about the non-traditional student, or in this particular instance, the creepy…

Aside from being universally loathed, unabashedly biased and comically out of touch, Bob Knight is a good color analyst and an all around sagging sack of joy. So it came as no surprise when the network that willingly writes large checks to Skip Bayless and Dan Dakich revealed earlier this week that Knight will be…

You want it? Come and get it. Each year in late October, college football is set ablaze by a war that’s waged on the Southeastern front as the nation turns its lonely eyes to Lexington, or Starkville, woo, woo, woo. Fueled by vitriol and venom, the annual showdown between Kentucky and Mississippi State never wants…

In the middle of the 2010 season, I wrote this scathing review on the pitiful state of affairs within the confines of SEC basketball. It was harsh, sure, but also hopeful that the conference could get its collective act together for the sake of humanity because no way could it get any worse, right? Nope.…

It’s Gameday. You’ve been faking it all week. Another 8-5/M-F consumed with grown-up anxiety and schoolyard optimism. You simply don’t have time to fret over meetings when you’re worrying about the offensive line against that blitzing front 7 and the rookies in the secondary. The most you can offer is a factory installed smile and…
