Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook editor Chris Dortch understands why some fans seem to almost have a hatred of Kentucky basketball.

“Fan is just short for fanatic and can mean Looney-Tunes,” said Dortch. “If you are like me and appreciate basketball and understand why people of Kentucky appreciate basketball, you can appreciate Kentucky fans’ appreciation of their program.”

Dortch expects John Calipari to have another team UK fans will appreciate this season, especially with the return of sophomore Isaiah Briscoe.

Blue Ribbon’s Chris Dortch to join us on WPBK-FM


Certainly in Kentucky it is never too early to look ahead to college basketball season and Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook editor Chris Dortch will join Tim Estes and myself on WPBK (102.9 FM, wpbkfm.com) Thursday from 7:30-8 a.m. to talk college basketball.

Blue Ribbon is the Bible of preseason basketball yearbooks and annually has the best and most thorough analysis of every team in the country. And the great thing about Blue Ribbon is that you can use it all season because the basic information is that good.

Join me and guests Doug Flynn, Chris Dortch on Leach Report Monday


Monday I get my first chance to host the Leach Report while my buddy Tom  Leach continues to take a few days off. The pressure is on because the one and only Ryan Lemond hosted for Tom last Thursday and Friday.

The good news is that the show from 9-10 a.m. should be easy because of my guests — Doug Flynn and Chris Dortch.

Flynn will join me from 9:15-9:30. Certainly I plan to have him update us all on the health of his father, Bobby Flynn. He’s been a fixture at Lexington sports events, including UK football and basketball, for years but recently suffered several injuries in two falls.
