Remember, It’s Only August

I admit it.  I had very modest expectations coming in to the Big Blue Bahamas Tour.  I was fully aware this was the first time the team would be playing together.  I realized it was only August, so practice in earnest really hasn’t even begun.   The competition, while respectable, wasn’t the toughest we could have by any means.  I expected a typical exhibition kind of game...

Big Blue Bahamas Tour Begins

The long-awaited debut of the 2014-15 Kentucky Wildcats finally arrived as UK took on Puerto Rico in the first of six games to be played in the Bahamas.  I had been so anxious to get my first look at this exceptionally talented team,  I was able to (mostly) overlook those hideous uniforms.   While I understand this is very early, I saw much to be excited about for the upcoming...

Linebackers becoming a Big Blue strength

There were moments early in their careers — probably too early — when Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams started games at linebacker for the Giants. They made plays, missed plays, stayed on the roster and did not do enough to seize control of a job. Help has arrived — Jon Beason not long into the 2013 season and Jameel McClain in this year’s free agent haul. Just like...
