Weekend Edition Featuring the Rick

I get the feeling that Rick Pitino is not over his little spat with the media. You may remember that hastily-called press conference, when Pitino blasted the media for reporting on the whole Karen Sypher mess. I went to that one, and the media assembled there are still scratching their heads over Pitino’s speech, which was to tell everyone in the media that they shouldn’t cover Sypher’s antics because they were lies. He seemed to be motivated to speak out after a TV station interrupted programming to report a new Sypher development. But Pitino can’t control what the media chooses…

Today’s Least Surprising Lead Story

So Randall Cobb is leaving the University of Kentucky to play professional football. I’ve never criticized a college student for leaving school early to take a good job.

Now that the Big East has started, let’s hope that nonsense is over. This Cards’ team is fun to watch, but as was evidenced last night against…

Knocks on Kentucky Keep Coming

The Louisville Sports Commission announced that Stanford’s Owen Marecic, a two-way player for one of the nation’s top teams, won the first Paul Hornung Award honoring the nation’s most versatile college football player.  While I haven’t seen Stanford play, he certainly seems to deserve the honor. Folks around here, though, surely were wishing that Kentucky’s Randall Cobb would pick up the new trophy.  Cobb set a record during Saturday’s BVAA Compass Bowl for the most career all-purpose yards in Southeastern Conference history.  Cobb was the model the award seemed designed for — an all-purpose back who ran back kicks, started…
