  • In retrospect, elk for crappie trade a good will gesture

    My column last month stirred up a little conversation that leads me to address it a bit further this month. Some outdoorsmen, including me, had a beef over the deal with Missouri to swap 150 of our eastern Kentucky elk for crappie.  


    Yes, elk for fish.

  • BLOG: Knight has earned his spot in UK history

    Brandon Knight, you have earned your spot in Big Blue history.

    I fell in love with basketball when Louie Dampier and Pat Riley were leading Rupp’s Runts into their place in Kentucky basketball lore.  I can’t say I really remember that much about that team. I was too young to really appreciate it and over the years things have blurred considerably.

    What I do know is that in the ensuing years, when the Kentucky Colonels needed that red, white and blue ball to go through the basket in a clutch situation, Little Louie was the man they called upon.
