See, we told you.
On Friday night, UK's baseball Cats took down No. 8 -- and perennial national power -- LSU, 8-2.
The Wildcats won their SEC opener for the second time in three years under John Cohen and improved to 16-3 on the season with their seventh straight win. LSU lost a conference opener for the first time under fifth-year head coach Smoke Laval and fell to 16-4.
With the quality of talent the Bluegrass State produces annually in baseball, a College World Series-caliber season could lift Kentucky into the SEC's top tier.
