Good morning BBN, and it is with a somber tone that we start Monday off. Sunday saw the loss of two athletes that were very well-accomplished in their respective sports, Arnold Palmer and Jose Fernandez.
Palmer’s legacy speaks for itself, and there are few who don’t know just how great he was. He was a trailblazer for the game of golf, he was nicknamed ‘The King,’ he was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he was one of the greatest to grace the sport. His impact on golf will be felt forever, and given the fact that he was recognized by the President of the United States and has a popular beverage named after him, it’s definite that Palmer will never be forgotten.
As for Fernandez, he leaves us in a position that Palmer was once in with golf. Fernandez was just 24, and was just establishing himself as one of the best pitchers in baseball. At such a young age, he was already demanding the attention of opponents, receiving awards and going to All-Star games. His dominance on the field was supplemented with an infectiously upbeat personality and a deep love for two things: baseball, and his family. He was one of the great, vibrant young personalities in baseball, and his loss has shook baseball to its core.

The Wildcats may have found their winning formula against South Carolina, or at least a portion of it.
A look at everything that went down in Kentucky’s second win of the season.
The Cats are NOT ranked last in the SEC in this poll. Have we finally climbed from the cellar?
Again, Kentucky has climbed out of their last place position. Meanwhile, rival Tennessee is on the rise after finally getting a meaningful win.
According to Joe Mussatto, the Wildcats weren’t any different on defense than they have been. All they did was actually execute, and that was all they had to do.
I’d say he still is, but the win over the Gamecocks goes a long way in keeping his job safe for the time being.
The mad hatter was awfully close to being fired at the end of last season, and the loss to Auburn was the last straw, as LSU has decided to part ways with Miles.
One of the greatest to ever play the game of golf, Palmer will forever remain a legend.
Carson Wentz continues to shine, and he destroyed the Pittsburgh secondary en route to his third win.
The Cuban-born Marlins ace was one of the best in the business, and everyone will miss his great pitching, his love for baseball, and his infectious enthusiasm.
While I’m sure the 12s are happy about the win, Wilson’s injury casts some uneasy feelings. Wilson sprained his knee and sat the remainder of the game after finishing the drive that Seattle was on.
This is nothing new for Steve Smith, but now he’s got a new opponent when it comes to jawing. Ramsey showed some tenacity, getting into it with someone as well-established as Smith However, Ramsey might want to remember the record his team has.
