Today on vaughtsviews.com is going to be officially Oscar Combs Day.
The legendary University of Kentucky media personality announced Thursday he was going a “different direction” and would no longer be part of the University of Kentucky Radio Network presume show for basketball or football.
Obviously Kentucky fans took to Twitter to thank Combs for all he’s done for UK sports since founding The Cats’ Pause in 1976. But Combs is just as beloved and respected by media members of all venues and age groups.
So during the day, I am going to share what some media members sent me when I asked them for their thoughts on our friend, Oscar Combs.
Cameron Mills, cameronmillsradio.com: “There is no one more knowledgeable or passionate about Kentucky basketball than Oscar Combs. From his sense of humor, his Perry County twang, his love of ‘mountain ball’ to most recently his evisceration of Dan Dakich.
“Kentucky broadcast will no longer be the same. There is a short list of people who became legends of the most legendary basketball program in history without ever touching a ball. Oscar is one of those three. You can decide who are the other two.”
Next: Gary Moyers of The Cats’ Pause.
