The staff at SEC Writer was recently able to catch up with former University of Kentucky softball player Megan Glenn. Megan played for Kentucky from the 2003 through the 2006 seasons. She was one of the best defensive players to play at the University of Kentucky as she totaled 1,117 putouts in her career and also had a .980 career fielding percentage. Megan posted over 300 putouts in both her freshman (2003) and senior (2006) seasons. Prior to her career at Kentucky, Megan was named 2002 Defensive player of the year and high school MVP at St. Charles East High School in St. Charles, Illinois. We were able to ask Megan where she is now and about her career at Kentucky.

This past week was an awesome week of SEC baseball! Many teams continued to play well, and a few stayed undefeated. However, there was one player who had an incredible individual performance. His story will be told after this week’s power rankings. The power rankings this week will feature a slight shake-up due to a rule I have for myself. Whenever a team is undefeated, they are ranked ahead of any team with losses. Once they have a loss, the teams go back to their normal positions. The teams that are still undefeated are South Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
This week’s rankings are as follows:
1. South Carolina (7-0)
2. Arkansas (6-0)
3. Tennessee (7-0)
4. LSU (7-1)
5. Vanderbilt (7-2)
6. Texas A&M (7-1)
7. Ole Miss (8-1)
8. Kentucky (6-2)
9. Mississippi State (6-4)

A lot of the criticism of Tennessee head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin this season has been directed at his coaching staff and coaching decisions. Fans to call in-shows have been critical of Martin’s lack of coaching and coaching depth in the final moments of tight games this season – many of which the Vols have let slip away.
But, could it be that in what many were calling the biggest game of the season for the Vols’ waning NCAA Tournament hopes that Martin over-coached the final seconds in regulation, sending the Vols not only to overtime but, also to defeat?
Consider the situation.
Down by eight points with a minute to go in the game, the Vols come storming back to cut the lead to just two points with under ten seconds to go...Read More

Baseball is finally back! Last weekend we finally had some good weather and the opening weekend of baseball was perfect. I enjoyed my time at Baum Stadium immensely. If you’ve never been, that’s a great place to catch a baseball game. Now this week will feature what we learned from week 1.
SEC Power Rankings:
1. LSU Tigers (4-0)
What we learned: The Tigers are as loaded as we thought they were. They outscored their opponents 22-7 in week one and they had no problem with anyone. They’re still the team to beat this year
2. Vanderbilt Commodores (4-0)
What we learned: If you score against Vanderbilt, keep the ball. This team allowed four runs through their first four games of the season. They’ll compete with LSU for the top spot this year in the SEC.
