Saturday morning links


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.

    I’m with Bledsoe on this one. That is not how Noel typically blocks a shot. There was an exaggerated follow through. Whether Bledsoe was joking or not Noel needs to grow up. He could have done some damage with that swing. (and no there is zero chance the Cats would beat the Sixers)

    I haven’t seen the tape of the block, (comp. probs) but I will go with Nerlens on this!
    You say something like that about a team, what do you expect? Nerlens is taking care
    of his team, and hard fouls have become part of the game, (like it or not)!

    BTW, if it was a joke, he should have said it was a joke!

    I haven’t seen it and therefore know that it wasn’t a dangerous blow to the face against a guy a foot shorter.

      Some people just have to defend their opinions, don’t they?
      Get over yourself! I never said you were wrong, just took the
      other position! So WHY is that hard for you to take? Must not be
      very confident in your feelings about it!
