Not much going on in the way of news, but here are a couple of things worth checking out:
- In light of last week's saddening news that future Hall of Fame baseball player Ken Griffey Jr. has retired, SportsIllustrated.com is chronicling the top retirements of 2010. Why is this relevant for a UK blog? Well, beloved UK football coach Rich Brooks, who, as Sports Illustrated terms it, got Kentucky's football program back on the road toward respectability, made the list. I don't know if the list is in order of importance, but for a Kentucky football coach's retirement to even be big news speaks volumes of how far the program has come under the tutelage of Brooks. Check out the feature here.
- In addition to a great news release by Evan Crane, check out this story by Jody Demling of the Courier-Journal on a great story on a pair of UK golfers at the Kentucky State Amateur Championship. Jordan Blann, a senior on the 2009-10 Kentucky golf team, edged out his brother, who is also a UK golfer, on the first playoff hole of the Championship. "You want to beat him, but you don't," Jordan said of beating his brother, according to the Courier-Journal story. "I don't know. You just don't ever expect something like that."
