Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies. Today’s lead story is the advent of the SEC baseball tournament, and the Bat Cats tilt with the Alabama Crimson Tide in the first round today. First pitch is slated for 5:30 PM ET in Hoover, Alabama.

Kentucky and ‘Bama are tied for 8th in the SEC, and UK has the higher seed by virtue of winning the series against the Tide earlier this season. Kentucky had to win it’s last series against Missouri just to get to .500 in the SEC season and tie Alabama.

Kentucky is firmly on the NCAA tournament bubble, and a loss to Alabama today would most likely burst it.

I hope he’s right. That would make the Wildcats an even more serious threat to win #9 next season.
