News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Kentucky plays for the NCAA Tournament championship tonight. Bat Cats take series off the Florida Gators. Softball takes series 2-1 off Texas A&M. More.

Off all the songs that I have seen done about Kentucky this season, this one by Crystal Reeves is my runaway favorite. Enjoy.

Tweet of the Morning

There seem to be a lot of firsts this season.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
Kentucky basketball
Other Kentucky sports
College basketball
  • Wisconsin may be heartbroken now (and who wouldn't be after that game with Kentucky), but I think they have a fine chance to get back to the Final Four next season.

  • This is totally hilarious!

  • Black coaches at major colleges seem to be diminishing in number.

  • Sigh:

    But the model isn’t working for college basketball. When Kentucky’s five freshmen starters take the floor against Connecticut on Monday night, it’s unlikely they will ever play together in the same uniforms again. They’ve been in school for seven months. It’s unlikely they’ll all return for another semester as student-athletes.

    Yeah, yeah, we hear this every single year. Bad for college basketball, blah, blah, blah. Honestly, it has worked out fine. Most colleges never have to deal with a one-and-done player, and colleges who don't have them win national titles, too. Spare me, please.

    Then this:

    It’s incumbent on the NBA and the NBA Players Association — and the NFL, too — to stop encouraging this mockery of higher education by doing what Major League Baseball does, and create a farm system. Scholarships should go to students who want to be students first.

    Lady, I don't know how to tell you this, but the NBA is a business, not a social club. It doesn't have to do a single thing that is not in it's best interests, and right now, at least, their interests are served by not having to spend a fortune on a development league when they have one ready-made that doesn't cost them a dime.

  • University officials adamantly opposed to "one and done." Doh.

  • Retrospective by the Gators at Alligator Army. Good stuff.
