Kentucky Basketball: Want to Know What A Real Sports Writer Looks Like?

There are sportswriters, and then there is Dick "Hoops" Weiss.

My earlier article took umbrage with the dreck we have been seeing out of the national sports media about the Kentucky Wildcats vs. Cornell Big Red Regional Semifinal game tonight, so it's only fair that I point it out when one of them does it right.

Dick "Hoops" Weiss has been a wonderful sportswriter for many years, and he famously helped Rick Pitino write Full Court Pressure:  A Year in Kentucky Basketball, which I still re-read now and again.  His piece on the UK-Cornell matchup is here, and it is absolutely worth your time to read.  He is fair to both teams, does a great job of storytelling, and grinds no axes with anyone.  I wonder if we can clone him? 

Thank you, Hoops, for setting such a great example.
