It’s a Sunday morning here in Big Blue Nation but I would be remiss if I did not note the passings of two baseball Hall of Famers on Saturday with the loss of Cardinals great Stan Musial and Orioles manager Earl Weaver.
UK Hoops will take on Auburn on Sunday. Matthew Mitchell’s team is ranked #5 in the nation as they host the visiting Tigers at Memorial Coliseum at 2 p.m. on the SEC Network. The game is also available on ESPN3 and, as always, Neil Price is on the call on the UK IMG Sports Radio Network. The game is part of the “We Back Pat” campaign.
The Kentucky cheerleaders are heading into the finals in their quest for their 20th UCA Cheerleading Championship.
This year, the Wildcats will be looking to extend their latest streak to two championships. UK has won 19 of the 28 UCA national championships dating back to 1985 and 15 in the last 18 season, an unprecedented level of dominance for a program steeped in tradition.
It’s amazing how dominant the Cats have been in cheerleading over the years.

Mark Stoops is excited for Kentucky to start spring practice. Many Kentucky fans join Coach Stoops in looking forward to spring football practice and especially the 2013 edition of the Blue-White Spring Game in April. As of yesterday, the 2013 recruiting class is ranked #42 according to Rivals. Depending on which seniors announce their commitments to the Cats, this very well might change come National Signing Day.
Kentucky kicker Craig McIntosh was on the roster for the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, which took place last night. He was the kicker for the American team. Unfortunately for McIntosh, the National team crushed the American team 34-0.
