Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning quickies. I hope your summer has been great, because it’s coming to an unofficial close pretty soon. Of course, that means Kentucky football with basketball hot on it’s heals, and that’s not a bad thing.

Today’s lead story is by Jen Smith of the Herald-Leader, and it’s about UK center Jon Toth — or rather, Jon’s mother Stacey Reifeis. Reifeis suffered a horrendous motocross accident that resulted in a 25-foot fall, and it was almost easier to name the bones that were not broken than the ones that were.

Her doctors doubted she would ever walk again. 15 surgeries and 3 years later, she can walk just fine. Amazing story. The bravery and determination of human beings is truly breathtaking sometimes.
