The 97th Indianapolis 500 happens on Sunday, and whether or not you're a fan of auto racing (and I'm not), that's big news. I was able to attend the time trials at Indy 15 or so years ago, and it was a very cool thing.

Tweet of the Morning:

Mark Stoops is determined to give himself, and Kentucky, a chance to compete in the SEC. It shows.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Drew Barker will be participating in the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge (via Hank).

  • Mark Stoops thinks hiring Vince Morrow was a home run in retrospect, and I totally agree (via hank).

  • We all know, or should know, that Darius West and Mike Edwards want to play together. Both are considered Kentucky leans. However...

    There's one problem with this article: He doesn't have an offer from Michigan State. Clearly, his coach is trying to get an offer from the Spartans and I believe he's trying to direct his player away from Kentucky. (Hank)

  • UK offers a 2015 player who has the perfect name for a linebacker.

  • Here's a good interview with T.V. Williams who may be leaning toward Kentucky. (Hank)

  • Can Kentucky compete with Alabama? Ky Cat Stats seems to think so. (Hank)

  • Larry Vaught interviews Mark Stoops, who was surprised by the amount of fan support. Also read the comments. (Hank)

    Kentucky fans' support for football is one of the lesser-known facts about this program. Historically, fans have stuck with the football Wildcats through thick and thin, not counting last year's protests. (Glenn)

  • Straight from the horse's mouth. Nice visual as well as UK being among some nice company. (Hank)

    Pretty darn cool, that. (Glenn)

  • Here's what a Florida spring game looks like... Kentucky recruits on the field: Ryan Sousa - Lake Nona - Watch the video at the end of the article.

  • Kentucky gets another offensive line commitment from Ohio. Had some nice offers, like Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Pitt.

  • Mark Stoops understands the challenges at Kentucky.

  • In case you've forgotten, softball opens play against Arizona St. in super regional play today. The winner of the super regional advances to the Women's College World Series.

  • KSR has a postmortem on Kentucky's baseball season. This was an epic fail by the team, dropping 19 of their last 27 games to go from 5th to no postseason.

  • Five college coaches without long, consonant-dominated names who could lead USA basketball. The usual suspects, with the somewhat notable absence of Rick Pitino. Does Goodman think he's too old or something?

  • You know what the best part of this video is? My Kentucky does NOT include the Louisville Cardinals.
