Being the head basketball coach at the University of Kentucky guarantees that Tubby Smith is going to be an influential person in the Bluegrass. However, Sports Illustrated noted last week that Smith's influence extends outside the state. The weekly sports magazine ranked Smith No. 60 on its list of the 101 most influential minorities in sports. "In 2004, Smith won his fourth SEC title. An early-round NCAA exit riled rabid UK fans, but a top-ranked recruiting class calmed them down, at least for the time being," the magazine said about Smith.

Linebacker Ben Bates of Plain City, Ohio, has joined Kentucky's 2005 football recruiting class. Bates committed while attending Kentucky's summer camp, but had not made the announcement public until Thursday. He was averaging 12 tackles per game this season before fracturing his ankle. He's still hoping to play in November. Bates said several schools, including Wisconsin, wanted him as a defensive lineman, but he wanted to play linebacker and UK was willing to give him that chance.
