I'm sure a lot of you have been wondering about our annual Kentucky basketball prospectus, Wildcat Tip-Off. We have published Wildcat Tip-Off for the last two years through Maple Street Press, and it has been sold in hard copy at various distribution outlets around Kentucky.
This year, things have changed. Maple Street Press had a snafu with their distributor that made publishing the book in hard copy at magazine stands impossible. This breakdown happened very late in the process, long after all content had been submitted to Maple Street Press. For a while, it looked like Wildcat Tip-Off 2011-2012 would not happen, and that all our hard work, and all that excellent writing, would simply go down the drain and would be lost to Wildcats fans.
THE GREAT NEWS IS that in spite of this devastating setback, we were able to publish the book digitally, and you can get your copy right now. The only real difference between the digital version and the printed one are the lack of pictures in the digital version.
The book is currently offered in two forms: A Kindle version available in the Amazon.com store right here. If you have a Kindle, you know the drill, and it is available and ready to download.
The other option is a PDF version, which you can purchase by clicking the BUY NOW button at the bottom of this page. The PDF version will be emailed to you at the address you provide. Both versions are available for about half the price of last year's printed version: $6.99.
For those of you with Barnes & Noble readers, we're in the process of sending Wildcat Tip-Off to their servers as well, and I'll let you know when its ready later this week.
Wildcat Tip-Off 2011-2012 has all the great writing and features that have been in the previous two printed editions, including:
- A detailed look at the incoming freshmen, by Jeff Chao
- An analysis of the impact of Rupp Arena on Kentucky games in terms of real points by Jonathon Leverenz
- A look at the conference and non-conference schedules, game by game
- Ken Howlett remembers the Unforgettables after 20 years
- Joshua Lars Weill remembers Rex Chapman
- Darius Miller talks to Chris Diggs
- And much, much more!
