Good Morning, Sunshine! Here are some links to get your day started:
– As always, here is a rundown of today’s SEC Football Schedule. Of course, there’s no Kentucky football today because of the bye week. It also looks like it is a weak schedule for the SEC this week with no Top 25 matchups.
– I always hate to see former Cats fight and hope that Bledose and Noel can work this out. Obviously Bledsoe is still upset over what happened on the court. I really think Bledsoe was joking with his comment of how Kentucky could beat the 76ers and hope they can work this out off the court.
– Even with Kentucky not playing the best basketball last night, after watching Kansas, Louisville, Florida and Kentucky play this past week there is one thing I have learned: There is a huge difference between the #1 team’s playing level and the playing level of anyone #5 or up. Here is a look at the Top 25 men’s basketball teams and how they fared. My favorite part is where Louisville struggled to handle a very weak Marshall team in a rebuilding period.
– Seventh-ranked Alaska handed the No. 2 Kentucky rifle team its first loss of the season after winning 4693-4665 in a Friday matchup. Alaska outscored UK by a 2370-2355 score line in air rifle and a 2323–2310 margin in smallbore. The team will be back at it today against another strong opponent No. 5 Nebraska at 1 p.m., continuing the team’s stay in Alaska.
– After day one, at the Ohio State Invite, Kentucky Swimming and Diving team member Danielle Gallyer won the 200 individual medley and broke a school record. The Cats finished the day with 19 members placed in the top 10 in 11 events. The women sit in second place, while the men are in fourth.
– The University of Kentucky gymnastics team will have a season preview today with its Blue/White meet at 4 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum. Admission is free and it will be the last chance for UK to tune-up before the 2014 begins in January. The Wildcats, who finished 21st in the national rankings last season, return 13 gymnasts from the 2013 squad that posted the program’s highest-ever NCAA Regional team score of 195.925.
