Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: A.J. Reed Golden Spikes Edition

Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Kelsey Nunley honored for her WCWS efforts. James Young to work out for legendary team. Bruce Pearl returns to controversy. SEC Media Days schedule announced. More.

In case you somehow missed it on the front page of A Sea of Blue yesterday, Kentucky Baseball's A.J. Reed is a finalist for the Golden Spikes award for the best player in college baseball. There is really no objective doubt that he is the best, but fan votes count, so be sure to vote early, and often.

  • Valhalla to allow cell phones at PGA championship. That's sure to go well. I'm going, so what I want to know is will they allow Four Roses Single Barrel?

  • This was really inevitable. Geno Auriemma has it right:

    Auriemma also disdains the sense of entitlement he believes has become pervasive in the sport. "There are a lot of women's basketball coaches whose teams don't win a lot of games who feel like they're entitled to that job because of Title IX," he says. "I don't think the track coach feels that way. I don't think the baseball coach feels that way." Dykes, for one, is determined not to fall into that trap. "I've gotten lots of praise and I've gotten lots of criticism. Both of those are poison to me," he says. "The only thing I can do is control what I can control, because ultimately I'm going to judged four or five years from now on, did I get the job done or did I not?"

  • SEC baseball has stumbled badly in the NCAA Tournament. That's an understatement.

  • Florida claims the Women's College World Series over Alabama. Congratulations to the Gators.

  • Indiana fans lament a tough season. Wipe that smug grin off your face and have a little sympathy, willya? Okay, never mind.
