Now that the 4th of July fireworks have been lit and the barbecue is off the grill, our attention turns to football as teams begin to take the field for summer workouts as the season draws near. Team success is always the primary goal, but there are special players who are just a level above everyone else....

Method to the Madness: Les Miles gets contract buyout

Two years after being fired by the Louisiana State University Tigers, former head coach Les Miles has obtained a buyout of his contract. Miles will receive a one-time payment of $1.5 million to erase the remaining $6.5 million on his deal that was extended...

School of Hard Knox: Pruitt needs time to change Vol’s culture

"I don’t know how things were done around here before, but when you tell someone to go in and they don’t, aight, we’re not going to do that around here. So, I asked him to leave the sidelines." That was Jeremy Pruitt after the Florida...

What the NBA Draft told us about the SEC

The 2018 NBA Draft featured a handful of Southeastern Conference (SEC) picks and not all of them were from Kentucky. Actually, not even the first one off the board hailed from the Bluegrass State. Collin Sexton was the first SEC player selected at number eight by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kentucky did have four total selections in the draft, with Kevin Knox...

Star Wars: Cards’ QB battle heats up as Cunningham named starter

University of Louisville head football coach Bobby Petrino has named Malik Cunningham starting quarterback for Saturday’s Virginia game. This, after Cunningham sparked a lethargic offense while playing in their last two games.

The Pitt and the Pendulum: Panthers return to glory

The University of Pittsburg Panthers missed out on a bowl for the first time since 2007, ending their season 5-7. That record doesn’t tell the whole story, however. Pitt lost three games by six points or less. A bounce-back post season seems obtainable. Quarterback Kenny Pickett is coming off his first, full season as a starter,...

Mullen’s recruiting is struggling in the swamp

Dan Mullen was once the guy many Tennessee fans wanted to hire after Butch Jones left. I found that out the hard way after I tweeted, “Dan Mullen? A guy that’s won nothing? Where has Miss St. recruiting finished?” in response to a fan/reporter telling me his first call after Jon Gruden...

Kentucky in the playoffs? “So, you’re telling me there’s a chance?”

Kentucky and Syracuse are ranked in the top 25 this week, and I’m not talking about basketball season. Every week so far, I’ve thought, "this is the week Kentucky finally loses." Instead, they beat Florida for the first time in 31 years; they defeated...
