Most folks know I'm about equivalent not special rights, and you won't catch my a^s anywhere near Sharpton, but the mid 60's were different times. Texas Western (now UTEP), the first team to start five black players, defeated Rupp's all white UK squad for the 1966 title @ College Park, MD.
Race aside, it was a David vs Goliath story .
Anyway UK has rejected an offer to play UTEP in a 50 th anniversary game in 2016 and the excuses in the linked article are typical...Read Full Post »

I know it’s been a while, but often in the summer I’m too busy watching sports to blog much about them. College football is just the perfect sport for me to blog about since you have all your games finishing up on Saturday night, and (even with the national semifinal system) each game is much more important than an NFL game. Then, aside from the mostly irrelevant early-week games, there are a good few days at least to ponder the results and the upcoming week with no new results c...Read Full Post »

I said I would write on the Luongo trade a day after it happened, but I'm back at the radio station I interned over the semester break and covering hockey (Canucks) all day makes me not want to bring my work home with me. So will probably wait until the summer.
But I will share my men's basketball All-American and All-District teams quickly.
As a member of the USBWA I am allowed a vote for their Coach of the Year, Player of the Year, Freshman of...Read Full Post »

Pretty good article on possible outcomes. I have a feeling she could make all former athletes certify while current can't. Maybe the whole have an account with a sum earned for the player once they grad/leave early/injured will happen.
