Kentucky Wildcats Monday Quickies: Memorial Day Edition

The softball season comes to an end, the baseball team probably doesn't make the next round, and more.

Today is Memorial Day 2015. Whether you're spending the day out on the water, grilling marbled fat, day-drinking, doing yard work, unfortunately working, or a combination, I hope it's a good one with those near and dear. I apologize in advance for getting preachy, but at some point today let's take a moment to remember what today actually signifies and avoid going through the motions.

One may say, "Happy Memorial Day", but keep in mind the ones saying it are probably not the one's grieving. Many will be making trips, laying fresh flowers on a slab of stone in quiet cemeteries, and reminiscing. Today is the day for those who died in the service of our country. Let's dwell on that thought, and rightfully absorb it regardless of political leanings.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Per KSR, UK is a 1 point favorite over UofL, according to "a former oddsmaker". The inclusion of "former oddsmaker" doesn't make me want to put a lot of stock in this prediction besides the fact it's still May.
  • A thread on which true freshmen will start next season. If it's more than CJ Conrad it'll suggest issues with the development of players in previous signing classes. If Conrad is the only freshmen in all of the two-deep, that will be a positive sign in a lot of ways.
  • Scout's Patrick Loney has been tweeting that most of the 2015 signing class will enroll at UK on June 7th which will be the first day for the eight week summer session. They'll probably start "voluntary" workouts at the same time.

  • Patt Tillman. That is all.

  • ESPN's SEC blog has already "previewed" every SEC team. I have some nitpicks about the Kentucky preview, which makes me call into question the other previews.

  • SEC spring meetings focusing on Big 10 schools hosting satellite camps in the South. Building rapport in Atlanta is one thing. Getting players to leave warmer temperatures, and their home state schools, for a Pennsylvania February is something else. One or two players may end up in the B1G this way, but the topic feels like much ado about nothing.
  • Coaches on the hot seat.
