Received a tweet from @uglykidneil this morning, which read:

@johnclayiv Good to see Tamme get the love. But @steviejohnson13 does it every week, and gets no love from local media! #why?

He’s right. We’ve neglected to give ex-UK wide out Stevie Johnson a pat on the back for his fast 2010 start with the Buffalo Bills.

Why? Oversight.

And the fact that Jacob Tamme has a double-connection (UK and Boyle County) as opposed to SJ’s singular, but important, Cats connection.

Plus, Johnson plays for the winless Bills. (No excuse.) And Tamme replaced a known star in Dallas Clark, plus catches passes from a fellow named Peyton Manning.

But mainly, blame it on oversight.

So let’s try and make up for it a little.

Johnson leads the Bills with 30 catches for 409 yards and six touchdowns. Two Sundays ago, he caught eight passes for 158 yards and a score in Buffalo’s 37-34 overtime loss to Baltimore. In two seasons, Johnson has 42 catches, eight for touchdowns.

And here’s a nice Stevie “Call Me Steve” Johnson story from John Wawrow of the Canadian Press.

Larry Vaught pays a fashion tribute to Jacob Tamme

Larry Vaught of the Danville Advocate-Messenger is not shy when it comes to his local rooting interests.

In that vein, he has worn a Jacob Tamme Indianapolis Colts jersey while covering several sporting events.

Tamme played his high school football at Boyle County.

With Tamme starting in place of the injured Dallas Clark last night, and with Larry covering the UK-Pikeville exhibition basketball game, Vaught combined the two.
