Rich Brooks has retired

That means that Kentucky, our beloved state which just finished next-to-last in overall educational achievement, is leading the nation in at least one thing.  The head football coaches at both of the state's major institutions of higher learning are African Americans.  That's something to celebrate in a state that doesn't have much going for it these days.  We've somehow found a way to do the right thing more quickly than the overwhelming majority of colleges and universities in this nation.

It may be a small thing to many fans, but it's something important and something for which we ought to be proud. Here's hoping both Charlie Strong and Joker Phillips conduct themselves with class, with honesty and effort and integrity.  Here's hoping the U of L Cardinals fight and find their way back to the top.  And here's hoping that university presidents across the country see the results and say, you know, we ought to be taking a look at a lot more people of color for our head coaching jobs.
