■ In 2015, Kentucky will face five different rushers who gained more than 1,000 yards last season. Georgia's Nick Chubb is at the top of the list with 1,547 yards. Next is a former Cat in EKU's Dy'Shawn Mobley, who rushed for 1,491 yards last season.
■ As for UK loading up on offensive linemen for its 2016 class, you can never have enough offensive or defensive linemen.
■ Bill Arnsparger's passing last week got me to thinking who are the top NFL defensive coordinators of all time. My list: Arnsparger, Buddy Ryan, Dick LeBeau, Tom Landry and Bill Belichick.
■ Nine of the 14 SEC teams will go into fall practice having not yet named a starting quarterback.
■ If you couldn't tell, I'm ready for football.
■ Did you see where the Pacers are going to wear Hoosiers-inspired Hickory High jerseys in select games next season? Now Frank Vogel just hopes his guys don't play like a high school team or he'll be replaced by Gene Hackman.
■ If you think the struggling Reds aren't worth watching these days, you missed Brandon Phillips' backward flip to shortstop Eugenio Suarez, who caught the ball with his bare hand while on the move for a force-out in Monday night's 5-4 win over the Cubs. Highlight-reel stuff.
■ The way Johnny Cueto has pitched his last two starts, which lasted a combined nine innings, you wonder if all the trade talk isn't getting to the Reds' ace.
■ Never thought I'd say this a few years ago, but I'm going to miss Colin Cowherd, who's jumping from ESPN Radio to Fox Sports.
■ Welcome back Albert Pujols. We missed you.
■ Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Monday his league won't ban court/field storming, but will instead attempt to "manage" it. Good luck.
■ Report: NFL teams split more than $7 billion in national revenue from the 2014 season. Time to raise ticket prices.
■ West Virginia Coach Dana Holgorsen on new Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, whom Holgorsen coached at Texas Tech:
"Mike Leach saw something in him as a freshman quarterback. And what he saw was a (terrible) player with a great mind."
Only Holgorsen didn't day terrible.
■ Speaking of profanity, did you see where the ACC had to apologize for profanity at the bottom of a page in the conference's football media guide? I'm guessing the person behind it did not win "Employee of the Month."
■ For you fans cracking on Joey Votto, he's currently No. 12 in all of Major League Baseball in OPS. (Todd Frazier is ninth.)
■ Two great moments in sportsmanship happened this week:
Jordan Spieth stuck around to congratulate British Open winner Zach Johnson on the 18th green after Johnson won the four-hole playoff at the British Open.
For the second straight year, Steve Spurrier hitched a ride on Florida's airplane to Bristol, Conn., for the ESPN "Car Wash" on Tuesday.
■ Spurrier said he really enjoyed beating Miami in last year's Independence Bowl. "I still got a little Gator in me," said the Old Ball Coach.
■ Even though he didn't win the British Open, Spieth can join Ben Hogan (1953) and Tiger Woods (2000) as the only players in the modern era to win three majors in the same year.
■ What ever happened to Tiger Woods?
■ At the end of SEC Football Media Days last Thursday, the annual media predictions were announced.
Alabama was picked to win the SEC West but Auburn was picked to win the league. If you don't think that makes sense, the media has correctly picked the champion just once in the past five years. That was Alabama last year.
