Coaching change

As the smarty pants in the Bluegrass analyze the departure of UK coach Tubby Smith, let’s take a look at at least one set of coaches from Kentucky who haven’t changed much over the last three years.

Fast-forward to today, March 22, 2007.

Looks like the only thing to change was Denny’s sweater. You can’t make this stuff up.

Happy Birthday Mr. Bertram!

March 18, 2007 by Mark Cornelison  
Filed under Mark Cornelison

Being on the road often takes you away from family and friends on important days. Such was the case on St. Patrick’s Day, which also was Charles Bertram’s birthday. I’m sure part of Charles wishes UK had lost its first game and he could have gotten home for his birthday. But his "photo" family made sure he celebrated with good food and good friends.

Charles, who turned 51 on Friday, has been at the paper for 30 years. We benefit from his work ethic. Thirty more years coming up Charles!

OSU rocks, Texas A&M rolls on

March 18, 2007 by David Stephenson  
Filed under Blog

This week, I’ve been holed up in Rupp Arena covering the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament. I thought I’d post some photos from the Saturday games here, most of which didn’t get published due to space restrictions.

First the Ohio State game:
070317osuxaviersds834
That Greg Oden rocks. He won’t be playing college hoops long. He could be Robert Parish’s son.

070317osuxaviersds010
OSU coach Thad Matta. He thinks Greg Oden rocks, too.

070317osuxaviersds03
Ron Lewis’ buzzer-beating three-pointer, which sent the game into OT.

070317osuxaviersds02
Same moment, same photographer, same position. Different camera, different lens. This photo was triggered by my foot with a switch connected to a 30D with a 16-35mm f2.8 lens resting on the floor in front of me.

070317osuxaviersds04
We’re always looking for good action from a game, but often we’re looking for any kind of emotion that reflects the outcome of the game. Even better when both teams are in the photo.

Now, for the second game, Louisville vs. Texas A&M:
070317ultexasamsds14
How do you spell ally-oop? That would be Terrence Williams on his way to a dunk.

070317ultexasamsds12
UL’s Edgar Sosa, left, and Texas A&M’s Acie Law IV duked it out the entire game; both had incredible performances.

070317ultexasamsds10
But, someone had to win, and someone had to lose. Sorry Edgar.

070317ultexasamsds07
And now it’s time to celebrate and head to the Sweet 16.

070317ultexasamsds05
I’m sure there are a lot of people in Texas who would like to hug Billy Gillispie.

070317ultexasamsds06
Not Terrence Williams, though.

070317ultexasamsds11
The end. There is always football.

The “OFF” day

March 18, 2007 by Mark Cornelison  
Filed under Mark Cornelison

During the NCAA Tournament, the day between games is known as the off day. In some cases, we shoot fans enjoying the city in which their team is playing, and we get to do some exploring ourselves. During such exploration, we Kentucky photographers practice an art form we call "snappers". Snappers are fun photos. Sometimes they are photos of us in cool cities doing tourist things, and other times the images are intended to be funny.

This photo above is Charles, Bill Luster, and myself shot by David Coyle. Luster, Coyle, and Charles all have a knack for the snappers so I was just along for the ride.
