The Kentucky Wildcats blewout the Tennessee Volunteers 74-45 Saturday afternoon in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament in Nashville, TN.

The good folks over at ESPN captured this beautiful photo of Bruce Pearl taking a shit yelling at one of the players, refs, or Coach Cal during the game. What do you think Coach Pearl is trying to say or do?

2010 MLB Season Preview: Washington Nationals

The usual question, we have to ask ourselves about the Washington National is will they lose 100 games. However, this year things could be very different. By July, they should have a starting rotation featuring Stephen Strasburg and two time 19 game winner Chien-Ming Wang, a formidable lineup featuring Adam Dunn, Ryan Zimmerman, and Nyjer Morgan, if the defense can improve the question this year may be can the Nationals finish the year with a .500 record.

Speaking of that defense, in 2009 they committed 143 errors which was the most in baseball since 2004. It directly led them to give up 83 unearned runs, which was worst among all 30 MLB teams. Since they now have Pudge Rodriguez behind the plate the though is he can effectively slow down the opponents running game. On top of that switching Dunn from Left Field to first base should also help. This team still has big questions at second, and short.

The sooner Strasburg can get to the minors, the better. However, we must remember that he is still a pitcher who has never faced a major league hitter. By the start of summer, if everything goes right, he should be ready to move up to the big club. Nationals manager John Riggleman faced a similar situation with the Cubs in 1998 when he sent a young Kerry Wood down to the minors despite a strong showing in spring training.

The last question facing the Nationals is how much does Rodriguez have left in the tank. He is 38, and coming off his worst offensive season. He will likely share time behind home plate with 25 year old Jesus Flores. Flores was impressive in 2009, but was derailed by shoulder problems. The Nationals need Pudge to be solid, help fill for Flores as he recovers, and most of all be a solid club house guy, which has not been his strongest suit over his career.

Here's what I think the lineup may look like:

1. CF Nyjer Morgan
2. 2B Adam Kennedy
3. 3B Ryan Zimmerman
4. 1B Adam Dunn
5. LF Josh Willingham
6. RF Elijah Dukes
7. C Pudge Rodriguez
8. SS Cristian Guzman

Championship Week--What 2 Watch 4--Saturday Edition...

Friday provided us with a great day of basketball and saw many teams improve their bubble status, and possibly punch a ticket to the dance. Steve Fisher and San Diego State defeated the Lobo's of New Mexico and improved their tournament status to a near lock position. Tubby Smith and the Golden Gophers upset over Minnesota has possibly moved them ahead of Illinois on the better side of the bubble and UNLV's late night victory over BYU has almost guaranteed the MWC will have four teams in the NCAA tournament.

What in the hell is going on in ACC country? A country that is routinely touted as the best in the land has fallen into the depths of mediocrity. Duke has been handed a cake walk through the ACC tournament and has to run the gauntlet of Duke, Miami and the winner of N.C. State & Georgia Tech for an ACC Crown. WOW.

Enough of the Friday news....Let's talk about today.

-Kentucky and Tennessee will meet for the third time this season in the SEC Semifinals. Tennessee has handed UK one of its two losses this season and Bruce Pearl seems to have the perfect game-plan to beating Calipari. Pearl has been successful against Cal when playing Memphis and now the Cats. It should be interesting in Nashville this afternoon, as the Big Blue Mist has taken over Music City and many are now referring to the city as Nashville, KY.

-Kansas, being lead by that chubby, punk-ass Sherron Collins, is taking on Kansas State for the Big 12 championship today. The Jayhawks have dismissed the Wildcats twice this season, but the Wildcats are still playing for the hopes of a #1 seed in the big dance. Expect a great crowd in Kansas City and an even better game. I think the Wildcats finally pull off the upset and get a victory today versus the Jayhawks. Bobby Knight will weep for the rest of the week.

-Georgetown is on a roll and West Virginia has struggled to put the biscuit in the basket over the second half of the season. Greg Monroe and company appear poised to make a strong run in the tournament and the Mountaineers will have trouble slowing them down today. Georgetown by 10.

-Tom Penders and the Houston Cougars are attempting to make a cinderella run through the Conference USA tournament, but they're running into a red hot buzz-saw from UTEP today in the championship game. The Miners are now 26-5 on the season and have won 16 in a row. Tony Barbee has things clicking in El-Paso, and it'll be tough for the Cougars to slow them down. Randy Culpepper and company continue to improve their seeding with a big victory today.

There are several other tickets on the line today, but I'm running short on time and will give a recap of all the days festivities tonight. Enjoy the games!
