Cohen's Cats keep crushing

Sure the schedule hasn't been a gauntlet just yet, but former NSU head baseball coach John Cohen's Kentucky Wildcats are rolling.

UK is off to a 19-0 start. That's right, 19-0. Even if you're playing competition that is several notches below you, that's impressive.

Perhaps the most startling stat from the start is the Wildcats are doing what they're doing without preseason All-American Collin Cowgill. That's the same Cowgill who had 16 home runs and 61 RBIs last season. Still, the Wildcats are putting up relatively obscene offensive numbers.

Last season, Kentucky was seen as a bit of a fluke and the same could, but shouldn't, be said about the Wildcats program. A disappointing performance in a regional at Cliff Hagan Stadium didn't help national perception.

This weekend, the proving ground begins again for Cohen's Cats as Southeastern Conference play begins. Kentucky welcomes Arkansas, a top-15 program, to Lexington in one of the most interesting SEC series of opening weekend.
