Kentucky Wildcats Monday Quickies: Kentucky Softball Wins NCAA Regional Edition

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday was a huge day for UK sport fans. UK women's softball won a Regional championship, and the track and field team had their best performance in over two decades, More news and commentary from around The Big Blue Internet

Happy Monday morning to you all. Today will see quite a bit of content to help get you through the workday. If your Monday mornings are like mine then you woke up this morning feeling equal parts happiness and regret at staying up late to watch hours of Sunday night television. I do it because otherwise Steve will inevitably, and loudly, spoil anything of significance that occurred on Mad Men and Game of Thrones at my office in the morning. Steve...

Look Ahead

First up today is a post that had me reaching out to several friends and acquaintances who coach HS football in Lexington, Louisville, and western Kentucky for insight into Kentucky's 2016 in-state prep class. I hope you enjoy it. Second will be a post Glenn wrote on his way out the door that analyzes the utility of shortening the shot clock. Nothing is better than Glenn writing about basketball, in my opinion. Finally, batting clean-up, Keith has a post going up that discusses the state of the current quarterback race. He breaks it down from various angles, and it's another great post by him.

To the news...

Tweet Of The Morning

A tremendous accomplishment for The Hittin' Kittens. Congratulations to them, and all the fans that made the trip out to Cropp Stadium.

Your Quickies

Kentucky Softball
  • The softball team ended up having to play two games yesterday after dropping the first game to Depaul. Depaul winning that first game proved a mistake for them, as UK easily won the second game.
  • With the victory the No. 14 Wildcats won their NCAA Regional, and the team now advances to the Super Regional (The Sweet Sixteen) where they will take on No. 3 UCLA in a best of three series out in LA. This is the third year in a row the softball team has made it to a Super Regional.

If there are any Wildcat fans living in LA this should be a fun event to attend. Also, can we stay with you?

    Kentucky Track and Field
Kentucky Baseball
  • As previously mentioned, with their series win against UGA, The Bat Cats head to Hoover, AL to take on The Crimson Tide ranked No. 19 Tuesday at 5:30. AJ Reed will start on the mound.
Kentucky Football
  • Four star linebacker who recently visited UK committed to Michigan yesterday. UK lost out on two kids they would've taken to Clemson and Michigan this weekend. I'm fine with that.
  • The top outside linebacker in 2015 looks to be trimming his list again soon. Increasingly doubtful he ends up at UK, in my opinion.
Kentucky Basketball
  • 2016 guard shows an interest in BBN.
  • Carlton Bragg won't be committing anywhere soon.
  • Dominique Hawkins is doing big things in China.
  • recent poll states citizens don't want Rupp renovation to include tax dollars. I was going to bang out a post scrutinizing the poll and its implications, but thankfully Matt Jones has already done the heavy lifting.
