Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for holmes.jpg- Former UK golfer J.B. Holmes is in contention at the PGA Championship after two rounds of play. Holmes currently sits in a tie for third with Jim Furyk at 6-under-par. Matt Kuchar leads the the tournament at 8-under. The second round just wrapped up at beautiful Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisc., with the third round set to begin any minute. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like we're seeing the former UK star storm into contention more and more these days. The ex-Cat is quietly becoming a household name but is still looking for that breakthrough major championship. Maybe it comes this week. Holmes won't tee off until much later today, but you can follow all the action on CBS at 2 p.m. ET. Live scoreboard can be found here.

- Chris Low of provides some nice praise for Kentucky wide receiver Randall Cobb on his blog. Low writes that "Cobb is one of the best football players -- period" in the league and that "Cobb could play on my team any day." Pretty good approval from a guy who has typically been tough (but fair) on Kentucky football on his blog. Also, while we're talking about the pigskin, UK will have a scrimmage Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium to begin a major evaluation of the depth chart. There are a lot of position battles going on that Phillips hopes to look closely at Saturday. While the scrimmage is closed to the public, we will have a full report on the front page later this evening along with some video interviews on the blog.

- John Wall might be gone, but the legend of his dance continues to grow. During Friday's night's NFL preseason game between the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills, a game the Redskins won by the count of 42-17, Washington punt returner Brandon Banks did the John Wall Dance (video below) after scoring a touchdown (credit to John Clay for the find). Wall fever is obviously catching on in Washington for the Wizards' No. 1 overall pick. Even video games (NBA 2K11) have caught on with the dance.
