Saturday Morning Links

linksLooks like it is a slow news morning, although I expect that to pick up soon. Before I forget, don’t forget to change your channel to ESPN at 11 a.m. (Eastern) to catch College GameDay straight from Florida. Can’t watch it? We will keep you updating on anything important from that. Now on to some Saturday morning links:   –           As always, here is a look at what is happening around the conference today. Looks like SEC play starts today with Tennessee facing off against Georgia.   –           What’s the difference between Florida and Kentucky this year? Everything. And Jerry Tipton broke that down in an article. To summarize it best, the biggest difference is that Kentucky is really really good and Florida is really bad this year.   –           Vavel has a nice preview of today’s game. Pat Duerr breaks down a little bit of the rivalry and, with Lyles out, finds me something to worry about in Florida’s Dorian Finnley-Smith who is most likely the Gator to watch in this game.   –           Although it is likely this will not affect Kentucky, mojo please continue to help us, but the NIT is planning on shortening the shot clock this year to ‘jump-start college basketball’s lagging offense’.  It’s the NIT, so isn’t everything going to be lagging anyways? Just some food for thought.   –           Makayla Epps was recognized as one of the nation’s top point guards yesterday as she was named to the 2015 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch List. The award recognizes the top point guard in women’s NCAA Division I college basketball. Candidates exhibit the floor leadership, play-making and ball-handling skills of Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman.   –           I always like to give a little attention to the ‘other sports’ at Kentucky, but yesterday there were 3493485 events, so I will just break them down really fast now:
  • No. 23 UK gymnastics beat Mizzou with a season-high score
  • Meagan Prince posted a career-high 11 strikeouts to lead the No. 6 Cats to its season opener win over Florida A&M Friday.
