be all pretty and white I
forever. Not only were ‘
there a ton of
accidents, I saw three
and was victim of
another (minor bump
in the rear, nothing
serious). It seemed as
if sledding was a good
idea. Although the I
snow was not deep, it ‘
was still enough to

tickle the underside of

one of those wiener

dogs and enough to

slide down a very

steep slope on a bit of
plasticized cardboard.


I know of at least one
person (yours truly)

music and having an all

a place where you can i
dance with someone I
as old as your mom or ‘j
dad and yet not care I
because of the great

not the basement of

out of the loop in not ‘

Protesters fight police in Thailand

BANGKOK, Thailand w Hundreds of people
fought police in protests over the results of Thai-

unrest partly on disgruntled bettors who had lost
wagers on the vote. Police sent reinforcements to
10 provinces, mostly in the south, where demon-
strators blocked roads and laid siege to offices
where votes were counted, said national police
chief Pornsak Durongkapibul. “They burned po-
lice cars and other property and injured several
officers." Pornsak told Ruam Duay Chuay Kan

rule violations had been found
in the University's investiga-
tion. but would not reveal
specifics until the NCAA‘s in-
vestigation had been complet-
ed. Ivy will turn all of UK‘s
findings over to the NCAA.

Ivy's investigation began
Nov. 30 when he was informed
that possible rule violations
might have been committed on
an unofficial visit by Thomp-
son and several Melrose play-
ers to UK.

UK is expected to propose
self-induced penalties that
could include loss of scholar-
ships and official recruiting
visits. Mumme may be faced
with losing scholarships as

Mumme may face more
than the loss of star recruits.
Mumme's contract has a
clause that permits the Uni-
versity to terminate his con-
tract if Mumme commits “ma-
jor" rule violations or if they
occurred under his supervi-
sion by an assistant. Ivy has
supported Mumme throughout

the investigation.

The firings in November
and the investigations have al-
ready resulted in two of the
Cats‘ top recruits revoking
their oral commitments to UK.

Louisville Male wide re-
ceiver Montrell Jones changed
his mind after Bassett was
fired and did not include UK
on his new list last week.

Linebacker Joe Dipre of
Erie, Pa., backed out of his
commitment on Jan. 3. Dipre
and Jones were highly touted
and formed one of the top20 re

“It's kind of funny, or at
least ironic that Kentucky had
jumped into the ranks with

State and Ohio State in recruit-
ing," said Eric Thornsbury, a
fifth year education senior.

dards set by Eddie Sutton
