  • CAT ATTACK 3-13-09

    HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!  The four game losing streak is over.  I honestly almost forgot how to write something following a victory, but I’m thankful the Wildcats gave me the opportunity once again.  Maybe a trip to Tampa is what this team needed to regain the focus and intensity that had escaped them in recent weeks.  I can tell you one thing for sure, the weather here is just a little bit nicer than the 35 degrees back in Kentucky, but why rub it in.
