Nate Northington’s 50th Anniversary

On this day 50 years ago, Kentucky’s Nate Northington became the first African-American to play in an SEC football game.  Today the conference will honor Northington’s legacy in a variety of ways.  During every televised game there will be a one-minute salute to Northington, College Gameday will air a special package to pay homage to his legacy and Mr. Northington will be introduced to the Kroger Field crowd.

Since the University of Kentucky unveiled the statues that commemorated the contributions of Kentucky’s four African-American pioneers, many have heard their difficult story.  Filled with tragedy and triumph, it was unknown by many until recently.  Their contributions cannot be overstated.  Before you hear Northington’s story again, take another look:

How Kentucky Integrated SEC Football: The Valiant Foursome


Don’t Forget Those Clear Bags

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  Forget your clear bags three times and you’ve got to reevaluate your priorities.  I think the BBN understands the new clear bag policy, but I must do my due diligence one final time.

EMU’s Uniforms are Cold

Cold as ice, cooler than ice cold, these all-white uniforms trump all the poor pop culture references.  At least adidas got one thing right this week.


A Big Basketball Official Visitor

Normally I like to “Stick to Football” on Saturday mornings, but there’s a pretty big recruit in town the BBN must know about.

Top 20 swingman Quentin Grimes is taking his official visit to Kentucky this weekend.  Considered a point guard, the 6’4″ talent shoots like a two-guard.  He could complement Quickley well in UK’s 2018 backcourt.  Kansas leads in his recruitment, but the Cats are also in the mix with Texas and Marquette.

We Gone Swang, We Gone Ball

Because today is my birthday.  I’ll gladly pat myself on the back, but all I really want for my birthday is a blowout win.  Is that too much to ask for?

  2. Those unis are WAY cool! Lansing’s minor league baseball team is called the Lugnuts. I like that EMU is also giving a shout out to the American auto industry.

    Happy birthday Nick and GO CATS!!!
