Believe me, that headline would have screamed crazy earlier this week.
But as we head into the final few days of conference tournaments and the NCAA selection committee prepares to meet, the chances that the UK baseball team makes the NCAA Tournament is looking more and more likely.
Because of a weak overall field and strong RPI by Kentucky, there have been several rumblings that the Cats, despite missing the Southeastern Conference Tournament, could find themselves in the tournament.
Earlier in the week, Kendall Rogers of Rivals.com projected UK in the tournament and had them heading to Cal State Fullerton. SEBaseball.com released its projections Friday and included Kentucky as well.
The website predicts Kentucky will head to the Coral Gables Regional, hosted by Miami, as a No. 3 seed. Miami, FAU and Minnesota are the three other teams in the regional.
UK will find out its ultimate fate Monday during the selection show, which is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. on ESPN.
