    By LARRY VAUGHT He never played with quarterback Jarren Williams in high school, but Williams’ father, Anthony, saw E.J. Price play when he was a Georgia prep star and knows how good he is. “He played at Jarren’s high school. This dude is physical and nasty.

That’s why it seemed a bit surprising when Calipari offered a scholarship to 6-1, 150-pound point guard Darius Garland of Nashville after watching him at last week’s Peach Jam. Garland is good.

    By LARRY VAUGHT Life has been different for Kentucky running back Benny Snell since he ran for 1,091 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2016 — both UK records for a freshman. “I have been treated different by a lot of people,” said Snell. “But I also got a lot of doubt and negativity about whether I can do it again that gives me an edge for next year. Last year was okay, but I am never satisfied.” He got another “edge” for the upcoming se...

    By LARRY VAUGHT This is a true story. Make sure to remember that even though Leland Conway, Aaron Boone and I really have no way to prove it other than for you to trust us.

    By LARRY VAUGHT Who is the most athletic player on the University of Kentucky football team? No way could I pick one. Kentucky coaches probably could not either. So I decided to ask a few of the returning players to see who they would say was the most athletic player on the team. Junior linebacker Josh Allen had no trouble with his answer. “Josh Allen,” he quickly answered. “I do it all. Put me in any position and I am going to excel. I will show up and play. Th...

    By LARRY VAUGHT Nick Haynes believed in Mark Stoops when he opted to sign with Kentucky and come from Niceville, Fla., to the Bluegrass to play for the new UK coach back in 2013. Now that he’s set for his fifth — and final — season at Kentucky, Haynes admits he’s learned a lot from Stoops. However, one thing stands out to him. “Probably resiliency.
