The magazine features in-depth articles on players and coaches and really allows you to better get to know the people that make up the Kentucky Wildcats. Here is an example of an in-depth article on Patrick Sparks from Larry Vaught that will be coming out in our next issue:

His father isn't sure everyone understands how competitive his son is. Patrick Sparks seldom shows emotion on the court and even when he makes a flashy play, he'll not celebrate like many players do. "He is very serious. He's a student of the game. He studies teammates and the other team," Steve Sparks said. "He doesn't get credit for that, and doesn't expect to. He's not a chest thumper. He wants to do his job and do it the best way he can. It hurts him to lose. But he's never going to show much emotion win or lose. If he shows too much, it might give something away." Perhaps that?s why Patrick Sparks didn't overreact earlier this season when a UK official made a derogatory comment about him in a national magazine and implied he was not cooperative with media members. "I didn't think it was fair or right, but I moved on. I couldn't let that ruin my season," Patrick Sparks said.

His father said the comments hurt him. "He's a lot more sensitive than people think, or want to believe. If Patrick doesn't have a perfect game or make a big shot, it's not from a lack of desire. If you question this or that about him, I am sure it is hurtful. Yet I would guarantee you that Patrick has done everything preparing for a game that you could possibly do. I have seen it too many times. But we are all human. There have been some things said that upset and hurt him and his family, but he understands that comes with the territory and probably deals with it better than I do."

Our next issue also features a great interview with cormer coach Joe B. Hall by Keith Taylor on his impressions of the movie "Glory Road." Ryan Lemond has two articles. In one Ryan profiles some pretty famous walk-on's at Kentucky. Im another, Ryan speculates on how the Kentucky football team may use the versatie Curtis Pulley next season.

Here is another free excerpt from our next upcoming issue, Keith Taylor's interview of Joe B. Hall about the movie, "Glory Road."

Hall said Rupp and his staff prepared for the game just like it would have any other contest at the time. “It was just like any other game,” Hall said. “There was no mention of them (Texas Western) being an African-American team. There were no confederate flags or anything like that. Texas Western was a very good team.” Hall said that Rupp and his staff made “no excuses or anything like that,” after losing any game, but added that a “lack of knowledge” of the talent at Texas Western may have contributed to the final outcome. “Maybe we overlooked them,” he said. “We did not know much about them.” Following the contest, Hall was impressed with the Miners.
