  • Satterfield pulling offers is not good


    New University of Louisville football coach Scott Satterfield has only been in the Bluegrass State for a little over a week now, and he’s already made a few enemies within the coaching ranks.

    Satterfield, who was hired to take over for the fired Bobby Petrino, pulled the scholarship offers of four players recruited by Petrino.

    Two players area fans got to see this season, LaRue County standout Anthony Adkins and Franklin-Simpson guard Jack Randolph, were among the four athletes Satterfield pulled offers from earlier this week.

  • The latest controversy... or lack thereof


    All the rage lately has been about the song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” since a radio station in Ohio decided to remove the song from its Christmas playlist, citing customer complaints that the song promotes date rape and in particular some concerns about the lyric “what’s in this drink?” 

    Personally, I’m not sure what the song’s intent was, and let’s face it, we will never really know for certain. The writer, Frank Loesser, passed away in 1969, so really all we have is speculation.
