Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies.

Today, I want to highlight an article over at the Lexington Herald-Leader about an new book by Jim Host, founder of Host Communications, that sounds like a real doozy for fans of “inside baseball” stories about UK Athletics. Just a few teasers include:

  • Rick Pitino’s cut-throat negotiations with a desperate UK;
  • The story of how Bill Curry came from Alabama to Kentucky; and
  • Kentucky’s 1990’s flirtation with joining the ACC.

Looks like a fascinating read for any Kentucky fan. The book is entitled “Changing The Game: My Career In Collegiate Sports Marketing” and it’s out now. You can get a copy at https://www.jimhostbook.com.
