Field at Titan Stadium closed for the fall

The field at Titan Stadium is closed down for all three fall sports that use it.

Collins High School's football, boys' soccer and girls' soccer teams have to find new places to play their home schedules in their upcoming seasons, or play all their games on the road, because it has been decided that none of those three teams will be able to use the multi-purpose turf field this fall. 

This is just the latest in the Great Field Fiasco.

Sanner 11th; Lenz 12th, Griffin ties for 13th at KY Jr. Amateur Championship

Shelbyville's Brandon Sanner finished 11th in the 2011 Kentucky Junior Amateur Golf Championship in his age group Thursday, while Finchville's Hunt Lenz and Shelbyville's Josh Griffin finished 12th and tied for 13th, respectively, in their division. 

Sanner, in the Boys 13-14 age group, finished the two-day tournament with a score of 151 (74-77) at My Old Kentucky Home State Park Golf Course in Bardstown. He was tied for third-place after Wednesday's first round.

My mock NBA lottery

Didn't have room for my NBA Lottery mock draft in Wednesday's paper, so I'm posting it here.

Several players with local ties should be among the Top 14 selections in Thursday night's draft. Here are my predictions.

1. Cavaliers - Kyrie Irving

Comment: Cleveland takes the best player in the draft – the Duke guard who missed much of last season with a toe injury - with the likely hopes that it can turn around and get a big man with its second pick.

2. Timberwolves - Derrick Williams

Add Watson to my list of non-major champs

After the Masters I ran a list of my Top 10 current golfers who haven't won a major championship yet. It included Rory McIlroy, who absolutely blew away the field at this past weekend's U.S. Open. So with that in mind here is my updated list of the Top 10 current golfers who have not won a major championship.

1. Steve Stricker

2. Sergio Garcia

3. Lee Westwood

4. Matt Kuchar

5. Dustin Johnson

6. Adam Scott

7. Luke Donald

8. K.J. Choi

9. Ian Poulter

10. Bubba Watson

Collins coaching announcement should come today

The word I got the other day was that an announcement about the new boys' basketball head coach at Collins would be coming today.

If it IS NOT Titans assistant Chris Gaither, in the immortal words of Clark W. Griswold from Christmas Vacation, "If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet I wouldn't be more surprised."

It's offical: Turley to WKU

Below is the official press release announcing former Collins boys' basketball coach Curtis Turley as the new Director of Basketball Operations for the women's team at his alma mater, Western Kentucky University.

Five for Monday

Here are five thoughts, and/or items, for Monday.

1. Personally I'm glad to see LeBron James was MIA for the MIA in the NBA Finals. I was glad to see Dallas win its first title. I don't like Mark Cuban, but I like the players and coach.

Collins coach coming soon??

I've heard that we might find out who Collins' next boys' basketball coach will be as early as Monday.

If that's the case I figure it'll be an in-house hire.

Turley to be Director of Basketball Operations for WKU women

Expect the announcement, possibly as early as today, that former Collins Coach Curtis Turley will be the Director of Basketball Operations for the Western Kentucky University women's basketball team.

Mary Taylor Cowles is quickly building her coaching staff with some of the top high school boys' basketball coaches in state history. She hired Tim Riley, who won 307 games - including the 2004 state championship - at Warren Central, last week and now she'll add Turley, who has more than 600 high school victories to his credit.
