Part of The Cats' Pause

97/e ' &au&& VIEWPOINT Lot tors To Th Editor Too Much U of L Dear Sir: I've enjoyed your magazine greatly over almost the entire time you've been publishing and I wish to renew for another year. But I don't feel that you are really listening to many readers complaints about columnist Bob Watkins. I, too, feel he is much too pro-U of L in his columns, to the detriment of UK. And UK is what I subscribe fornot U of L. Bluntly speaking, I wish he were replaced by Jim Griesch, whom I did like. I hate to write this kind of item but I do get kind of "rankled" by Mr. Watkins writings. Frankly, I could do without him. Sincerely, Marvin R. White Lexington. Kentucky Eddie's America's Best Dear Sir: As two "True Blue Fans" who just happen to live in the heart of ACC country, your publication is like a breath of fresh air when it arrives in our mailbox. After reading the letter in the 12-27-86 issue from Mr. Robert Dishman of Jeffersonville, Ind., titled "Put Up Or Shut Up" we felt compelled to respond. Well, here it is 6 p.m. on 12-27-86 and in answer to Mr. Dishman, we now know once and for all that UK is the real Kentucky team. We think that today's game proved that Eddie's No. 1 last year's win at home was not luck, as Mr. Dishman, suggested, but pure talent. After all, today's home court advantage didn't seem to help UL did it. Mr. Sutton certainly did shut up Mr. Crum and Mr. Dishman today. Mr. Crum maybe America's Coach, according to Mr. Dishman, however Eddie Sutton proved today he is America's Best Coach! Our applause to Coach Sutton and the Wildcats for your impressive win today! We will be "True Blue Fans" forever! Sincerely, Ray and Pam Hislope Raleigh, N.C.
