Kentucky Wildcats Saturday Quickies: End Of Spring Practice Edition

News and commentary from around the Big Blue Internet. Stoops pleased with spring practice. Softball, baseball play at home today. More.

Mark Stoops is clearly very pleased with the spring practice, and based on what I have seen, rightly so. It looks to me like Stoops & Co. have finally hit the point at which we have enough depth and skill to compete in the SEC. Having said that, "competing" is not the same thing as winning.

  • Luke Winn doles out the first-ever Effy awards, based on efficiency. Kentucky gets one team and one individual, but Wisconsin garners the most.

  • Lost Lettermen writes an interesting article attacking Big Ten commish Jim Delaney. They make a lot of great points, including this one:

    In a 12-page letter sent to the media on Friday, Delany said his goal is to correct the imbalance between academics and athletics during this "critical moment in the evolution of intercollegiate athletics."

    As Delany said in February: "We’re trying to figure out a way to communicate that education comes before athletics. We don’t want to be a minor league for the NBA and the NFL. … College sports need to be about college. The educational experiences need to be real."

    Let’s cut through the B.S. and say what this is really about: The one-and-done rule in college basketball that college commissioners hate because it has shifted the power in college basketball from administrators to players.

    Exactly right. Delaney is a jerkweed, and it’s time to take him to task. Kudos, LL.
