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, 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."
