That is phenomenal. I've seen articles somewhat like this, but usually they're from a neutral source. This is the official Lexington newspaper, and UK fans are some of the most defensive in the land when it comes to talking up the history, tradition, and excellence of another program. Thus, I was truly surprised at the depth of positive sentiment in this. It was truly a breath of fresh air. He gets it. And so do all of the sources he quotes in the piece.

One of the best articles I've ever read on our beloved old Barn. Thanks for sharing!

“With kindest regards to Dr. Forrest C. Allen, the father of basketball coaching, from the father of the game.”

Yes, k63. This floated around on Facebook a few years ago; I stumbled onto it this evening.
