Libertarians4Freedom, mityeltu & dao1980 comments are disgraceful. These deaths are tragedies and don't involve frivolity, politics or religion.
This column is nothing but the usual Mark Wiedmer using his cute little phrases to embellish himself. Stick to the facts and spare us the homilies. AND....by the way, Weeds....are your own skirts clean in basketball recruiting? Seems I remember this kid named Lightfoot that you were trying to recruit for your beloved Kentucky Wildcats, although you were just a gofer. Why don't you come clean and tell the public what you did which you know was a blatant violation of NCAA rules. And when you do spice it up with a few of your little catch phrases.
Bernard King is without doubt the greatest player in the history of the SEC PERIOD!! 25 points and 14 rebounds per game for his 3 year career at UT and three time All American. I was in the locker room at old Memorial Gym in Lexington his freshman year when he told the media, "As long as I'm here they will NEVER beat us again!" And they didn't. I was also in the locker room at Rupp when after the Vols beat favored UK, Bernard pointed his finger at Curry Kirkpatrick of Sports Illustrated and reminded him, "Remember what I told you- as long as I am here they will NEVER beat us again!" Kirkpatrick nodded and printed the quote in his story of the game.
