  • Cal's Cats score, but not in classroom

    The University of Kentucky's 4-year, $32 million dollar man hired to rejuvenate the men's basketball program has succeeded in satisfying the Big Blue Nation's desire to be the best in the nation - or at least as close as West Virginia let them get to the top.

    No one can argue that Coach Cal hasn't restored the shine and luster to what the Cats do on the court.

    But someone, preferably Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart, should at least raise an eyebrow at how Cal's Cats are performing in the hallowed halls of academics at UK.
