UofL played a terrific game against a talent-heavy Kentucky squad, relieving pressure on what's been a lopsided rivalry. Big win for Louisville. Great night for Quentin Snider & Deng Adel vs UK's vaunted guard tandem of Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox. My radio buddy The Beasman isn't happy about his Cats, his Coach, or his Christmas. Along with Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson, Louisville Ballard alum Quentin "Q" Snider both became the toasts of the holiday season on Planet Red.

First team All-America, Heisman Trophy, Walter Camp Award, Maxwell Award, and AP college football player: it's been a pretty solid week for Lamarvelous. Swirling through his victory parade after winning the Heisman Trophy, University of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson visited Dan Patrick, one of the best interviewers in sports. Great stuff considering that Lamar is one of the most shy superstars in college sports. Patrick did a masterful job of pulling info from this humble student athlete. University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari was also scheduled for the December 12th Dan Patrick Show. The UK coach and UofL quarterback talked about next week's rivalry basketball game between their schools. Cal tweeted a photo he took with Lamar, then heaped
Frank Capra's timeless It's a Wonderful Life was released in 1946, featuring Lionel Barrymore as sniveling miser Mr. Potter. But first things first. The 1939 radio play of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol features Barrymore cast as another miserly cad. Narrator Orson Welles refers to lead actor Barrymore as "the best loved actor of our time." 840WHAS Radio replays this incredible production every Christmas Eve. Showtime this year is 7 p.m. And now...meet some of my friends. My long broadcast career has allowed me to work with the best of the best in media.

NEW YORK - University of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson won the Heisman Trophy, a first for the university. Only 19, Jackson became the youngest winner of the award in its 81 year history. His 526 first place votes easily outpaced the 269 first place votes sportswriters and athletes generated for runner-up Deshaun Watson of Clemson University. Three other finalists were invited to the ceremony but their numbers were dwarfed by Jackson's 2,144 overall vote total. Prior to the award ceremony, the humble Jackson met the media to talk about family, football, and New York pizza.
