John Calipari's Deal Is Bad, Even For Players Whose Knees Survive It

Last week, I wrote about the ways that both pro- and anti-NCAA camps tend to miss the mark when talking about University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari.

What Are The Odds That Duke, Not Kentucky, Is The Last Unbeaten?

A staple of early January college hoops coverage is speculating whether any of the remaining unbeaten teams can finish the regular season without losing. The correct answer is always "probably not", but over time a team like a Wichita State or Saint Joseph's will make you regret your "probably not" and turn you and… » 1/07/15 3:07pm 1/07/15 3:07pm

Matt Jones, host of Kentucky's highest-rated radio program and co-founder of the scrappily independent Kentucky Sports Radio blog, describes himself as a "somewhat liberal, mountain, Eastern Kentuckian white guy." He adds, "There aren't a lot of those." This puts him at odds with his listeners, whose politics he… » 11/04/14 7:04pm 11/04/14 7:04pm
