Morning Newspaper for February 18th


Another trip to Nashville, another depressing result.  Of course, I do think a lot of UK fans were laboring under the delusion that we could beat a bunch of SEC teams while our best all-around player healed his wounds.  I think the fallacy of that thinking has now been exposed.  But this is the news, not a mournful commentary on last night.

And so, we move on to the rest of today's headlines and hidden gems ...
