Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: SEC Baseball Semifinal Edition

US PRESSWIRE

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Bat Cats to face Florida in elimination game for SEC Tournament finals berth today. Kentucky softball to face UCLA in Los Angeles Super Regional action tonight. More.

Tonight, it's the Wildcats versus the Gators for a berth in the SEC Men's Baseball Tournament finals. What a run it's been for Kentucky, no matter who wins. If the Wildcats had just played a bit better down the stretch of the season, they could've been in line for a national seed.

  • When I hear somebody quote an unnamed NBA source, I ignore it. Unnamed NBA sources are among the dumbest basketball people on the planet. It looks even dumber right next to this:

    Cuff: "I would go would Randle, too. His game might not be NBA-ready, but his body is most NBA-ready. He's very athletic. He's right hand dominant. Needs to work on that left hand a little bit. But you're looking at 16-17 points a game, maybe eight or nine rebounds. [my emphasis]

    Dumb, and dumber. but I'd be happy to see Randle go to the Celtics.

  • Mike DeCourcy picks Arizona over Kentucky as the #1 preseason team. I respect and like DeCourcy, but I think he's just being contrarian here. Kentucky deserves to be #1 preseason, and you can rarely say that about any team.

  • A review of Governor Steve Beshear and Lexington Mayer Jim Gray's appearance on KSR's radio show.

  • Jon Cooper for SDS reports that more ACC-SEC games are likely coming with the new mandate that SEC schools play at least one FBS team in their non-conference schedule.

  • Not to be outdone by anyone, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly says he wants an SEC team on their schedule. Go get 'em, boys!

  • The iPhone 6 is coming! I don't know, for me, bigger isn't always better. I carry my phone in my pocket, and most of the larger phones are just too darn big to be comfortable. My iPhone 4 still works great, but I'm getting the itch to upgrade. It probably won't be for the newest model, though — I like to have phones where most of the bugs have been worked out before I buy them.
