I am retired from the insurance field after working for my Dad 5 years and then for my husband who both owned Independent agencies. I grew up being a Wildcat fan due to my Dad's passion for UK basketball and football and his beloved Notre Dame. I have an old picture of him after a football game at St. Leo Prep Academy and his face is so beaten and rough looking! He lettered in basketball too.
I share this passion of sports with my three sisters, three brothers and a very large extended family of relatives and friends. We are the BBN!

Wildcat Called to Serve - Corey Peters

Former Wildcat Corey Peters being recognized for his efforts to make a difference in the world outside of football.

Travis Ford gets a new 10 yr conract

They must really like him...doubled his salary for this season. Good for you Travis and good luck with your team. Tell Heather I said hello. She was a friend of my daughter during HS and the swim team.

The swine flu in Ky has now gone to regional outbreak.

+

This could really be bad this season. Some schools in Ky have already been hit and they have shut down for a week or several days this week. It seems to be hitting the elementary schools the hardest. I am hoping it does not hit our sports programs at UK.

Outstanding article on Jeremy Jarmon

He is doing well in the practices with the Redskins and presently working on the special teams unit. Go Jeremy!

Bucks sign Meeks

Jodie gets a 3 year contract with Milwaukee. Great for him! Hope this link is right, unlike my other one :-)

Mike Pratt totally supports Coach Cal

7

Per Larry Vaught's site. I know Pratt was part of the search committee for a new coach, but his comments on Gillispie gave me pause to note just what was happening with our program. Mike feels very confident in this hire so I will take his word.

Now we know the Boogie Man at Rupp

6

Great artcicle from Mark Story on Darren Moscoe who dances at Rupp Arena during the basketball games. His story in his childhood years is very sad, but thanks to the dear Lord, he can now do what he loves. One of the commenters says he coached him in LL baseball. I love this story and video of him dancing. Enjoy everyone.

Want to see a nice article about Coach G?

A close up look at Coach after the Tennessee win from Steve Tressler who owns a restaurant in Lexington.

Bill Keightley's Oral History Project

4

"The William B. Keightley Project contains interviews with Bill Keightley about his life and experiences as the equipment manager for the University of Kentucky Men’s Basketball team from 1962 until his death in 2008. Keightley talks about the basketball coaches he served under including Adolph Rupp, Joe B. Hall, Eddie Sutton, Rick Pitino, Tubby Smith, and Billy Gillespie, he discusses players he interacted with over the years, and he reflects on changes to the game of men’s college basketball. Keightley, nicknamed "Mr. Wildcat," also reflects on his personal life and family, his career as a postal carrier in Lexington, Kentucky, and his experiences as a United States Marine." I know that many UK fans want to hear what Mr. Wildcat experienced all his many years at UK. I am going to listen to all of them in my spare time. I personally think ASoB should have a permanent link on this site Tru. UK will never have another Mr. Keightley IMO.

Porter knows how to handle criticism

2

Another great piece from Vaught on Mike's ability to handle the criticism he has received his three years at UK. I must say it takes a very special UK player to look past that and just continue what he is asked to do in practice and for the team. Jodie Meeks says the same thing in a different way referring to his injuries last season. A very good read.

Lyons a perfect fit for Big Brothers recruitment

+

Another good story from Larry Vaught on Dicky Lyons...a great Wildcat and young man.

Meeks, UK Looking OK for Jan 4

10

This is an artcile by Crawford at the CJ about the game yesterday...there are also 3 video interviews with Coach G, Harris and Meeks. I like seeing the faces with the interviews. Enjoy!

Keightley big influence on Slone

I had not heard this before but I am not surprised. I think this guy is going to have a great career at UK. I love home grown Kentucky walk-ons.

Hey Cat fans just hold on tight and enjoy it! I am.

Tom Leach's interview with Ashley Judd after the UNC game

All I can say is we should be VERY proud to have her as UK basketball fan. She is so intelliigent as an individual and a woman, and has done so many good things outside of her acting career for the human cause.

Regarding 93.9 The Ticket

I for one am upset that Cumulus pulled the radio show.  I did not listen that often but anytime Matt, Jody and Trevor were going to talk about potential  recruits coming into Louisville, UK or IU,...

The Harassment of Coach G by the NABC

11

Yet again, the NABC has gone after our Coach because he set the date for Big Blue Madness a week earlier, all within NCAA guidelines. I think the other coaches are just po'd that our Coach was more ingenious than they. Go Cats!

Now, it's official: Miami Heat president Pat Riley a Hall of Famer

He just wishes that his parents were alive to see this. And yes, his Dad could drive to a hilltop in NY with his 6 pack to hear his games at UK on the radio. Good for him!

Big Blue Madness Date has changed

Will now be Friday October 10 instead of the 17th. Thought many UK fans would want to know.
