Soccer: Womens World Cup-USA vs Netherlands Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

The Women’s US National Team won their fourth World Cup in a row as they defeated the Netherlands 2-0.

It was another dominating performance for the Women as they once again showed the world that they are the gold standard when it comes to women’s soccer. They weren’t fazed by any of the challenges they faced. They were the best team in the tournament and they let their opponents know about it.

Of course there is controversy as there is with everything these days. Honestly there are multiple to choose from but the one that has been in the spotlight the most is the pay gap between the men’s and women’s teams.

The pay gap isn’t just noticeable... it’s substantial. It’s about time the women earn close to or even more than they men’s team. They deserve it.

College football preseason top 25 | Saturdays Down South- Kentucky makes the list here coming in at #23:

I don’t care if I’m the only person willing to put Kentucky in the Top 25 to start the year. Yes, Benny Snell and Josh Allen are gone, but you know who’s not? Mark Stoops, AKA the guy who coached Kentucky to its best season in over 40 years despite the fact that his team got zero preseason buzz. A Kentucky team that finished 2018 with 10 wins and a No. 12 ranking will have a more versatile rushing attack, a more reliable passing game and maybe, just maybe, Stoops’ defensive prowess will prevent them from falling off the face of the Earth.

Damn right.
