Kentucky Wildcats: Morning Quickies - Robin Gibb Edition

Morningquickies_medium

Sad news in the world of entertainment last night as Robin Gibb, one of the founding members of the Bee Gees, passed away at 62 years young. I cut a lot of rug as a youth to the Brothers Gibb.

In Kentucky Wildcats news, baseball coach Gary Henderson was named the SEC Coach of the Year this year, and a well deserved honor.

All that and more after the jump.

This is always a conundrum for mid-majors with good teams coming back. Very much like Boise St. in football, it is a struggle to get BCS schools to take you on. Because of the fact that these teams tend to be underrated in the RPI due to their relatively weaker conferences, there just isn't much incentive for a BCS team to take on a squad this good and risk a big hit to their RPI if they lose.

I'm not sure what the solution is, other than jumping into a tougher conference.

I grew up with the Bee Gees in the disco era. Our prayers go out to his family.

Gary Henderson Named SEC Coach of the Year // Kentucky Wildcats Official Athletic Site

Henderson has helped guide the Wildcats to a 41-15 record and an 18-12 mark in the rugged SEC, with UK’s 41 wins marking the most in UK regular-season school history. He has directed a turnaround from an 8-22 mark in league play in 2011 to the second-most wins in program history in SEC action with the 18-12 mark.

Congratulations to coach Henderson. I never thought he could do it. I'm glad he proved me wrong.

I think MKG will be much better than Alonzo Gee in the NBA, although it will probably take him a little while to get caught up.


SEC-Big 12 partnership could be big in college football postseason // shreveporttimes.com

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany wants only the four highest-ranked conference champions in the playoff.

However, both Alabama coach Nick Saban and LSU coach Les Miles are on record saying the field should be open to more than just conference champions.

So who wins this battle of the wills? I think it shows a remarkable lack of confidence by Delany trying to exclude a second member of a given conference. Has the SEC proven once and for all that it is superior to the Big 10, even to the Big 10 commissioner's satisfaction?

The always-interesting Kyle King looks at the possibility of some Big 12-SEC games other than the new bowl tie-in. Don't expect too much for the Kentucky Wildcats, though -- the SEC traditional powers think no more kindly of us than they ever have, and no amount of basketball championships will change that.
