I have just boarded the private plane set for New Orleans along with
Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart (turns out Barnhart didn't board the plan after all and is flying down on another jet), radio broadcaster Tom Leach, compliance director Sandy Bell and several other noteable figures in the athletics department. As soon as the men's team arrives, we'll hit the runaway and take off for the Big Easy and the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
Before we get this bird in the air, I wanted to use this opportunity to give a short programming note for the upcoming postseason.
Given that I will be traveling with men's team throughout their stay in the Big Dance, I'll be bringing you the latest updates, features, commentary, video, live blogs and more. With the exception of the Associated Press recaps, photos and notes we will have on the homepage, this will be your one-stop click for all the latest postseason news.
Although I won't be able to tag along with the women's team throughout their run, Cam, UK's Web site coordinator, will be making the trip with the team. He'll have videos and live blogs with the Cats, and I'm hoping to add a few blog posts, time permitting, from the road as well.
If all goes according to plan, I should be able to make it Louisville on Monday for the women's second-round game, but that's very tentative at this point.
I'll check back in later tonight once we get settled in at the hotel in New Orleans. Until then, make sure you stay tuned to Cat Scratches and UKathletics.com for all your latest postseason news.
