  • Keep collegiate sports at an...

    The recent Zion Williamson knee injury has re-sparked one of the biggest debates in collegiate sports: should college athletes be paid like professionals?

    I remember writing a paper about this topic in high school, and back then I believed that college athletes do not deserve to be paid. I thought the scholarship and extra benefits college athletes receive was enough, and paying them money on top of that was too much.

  • Outdoors in the Bluegrass stays...

    As The Outdoors in the Bluegrass TV Show gears up for its third season, they had one goal in mind for the jersey design, and that’s to make it local.

When the custom apparel company came to Tyler Feaster, one of the show’s founders, with an initial jersey design, he knew immediately that it was the one.

  • Hyatt reflects on first season...

    In the days following the Anderson County boys’ basketball team’s district semifinal loss to Spencer County, head coach Bryan Hyatt thought about two things: the game itself and what he was going to do with his free weekend.

    This past weekend was the first weekend in which Hyatt had no plans centered around basketball, so he took his family on a weekend trip to Gatlinburg.

  • PJ Washington’s case for SEC P.O...

    Ever since Tennessee surpassed expectations last season and became a competitive basketball team, these Tennessee vs. Kentucky battles have been some of the more entertaining games.

    Part of that is because of the rivalry going on between PJ Washington and Grant Williams in the paint.

    The two players are virtual basketball player clones. They’re both 6’7” small forwards with a very versatile skillset, featuring an arsenal of post moves and a touch of shooting form behind the three-point line.
