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...

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team is taking on the Puerto Rican national team reserves as part of the Big Blue Bahamas Tour.

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.
