Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee’s gift to Kentucky softball

As a girl growing up in Soddy-Daisy, Tenn., Kelsey Nunley’s dream was to play softball for the home-state University of Tennessee — but the Volunteers did not offer her a scholarship. Instead, the pitcher is about to wrap up her college career as the cornerstone player of the most successful era in University of Kentucky softball history.

Can Matthew Mitchell survive as UK Hoops coach?

When faced with adversity two years into his Kentucky women’s basketball head coaching tenure, Matthew Mitchell showed resourcefulness and found success. But after the mass defection of players from Mitchell’s program this school year, the coach finds himself facing an even more daunting challenge.

University of Louisville

What the scandals at UNC, Louisville should teach the NCAA

Both North Carolina and Louisville were under NCAA investigation during the 2015-16 men’s basketball season. Both cases, from the outside, appear severe. In reaction, U of L self-imposed an NCAA Tournament ban and its players, including its seniors, stayed home for the postseason. UNC, conversely, took no action, and its seniors played in the national title game. That scenario is unfair, and makes NCAA ‘justice’ seem inconsistent at best.

UK Men's Basketball

When time comes, should UK retire a jersey for Tyler Ulis?

Tyler Ulis swept SEC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors and won the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s top point guard. Jamal Murray (20 points per game) became the second UK player of the 21st Century to average that much in a season (Jodie Meeks scored 23.7 per game in 2008-09). In the future, will all of that be enough for either player to see their jerseys retired and hanging in Rupp Arena’s rafters?

UK Football

The four games that will define UK’s 2016 football season

The conventional wisdom on the 2016 Kentucky Wildcats football season is that Mark Stoops’ fourth team faces a much more difficult schedule than it did in 2015. Yet there is a realistic window for Stoops and UK to pass through and earn Kentucky’s first bowl bid since the 2010 season. How the Cats fare against four SEC foes is likely to determine their fate.
