Rusty Fires it Up for UK, with Coach Mac and JYBIII

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO RUSTY SATELLITE SHOW #12 HERE Every week, the first idea I get for this post is. . . What a week!

Help is on the way.” My interview with Brendan McCarthy started another week full of media news. This piece in Insider Louisville got a lot of attention for its chronicling the outflow of warm bodies at Sixth and Broadway, while LPM is…
