We have been saying for awhile the state of the Kentucky football program might be at an all time high. The Kentucky football Twitter account confirmed these opinions with this tweet:
UK finished in third place in the SEC Eastern Division. Placing second last season, it is UKâ€™s best back-to-back finishes since the league split into divisions in 1992. pic.twitter.com/KUL8Vc0PUP

Sure, the SEC East is not a good division, but this is still something that we need to be proud of this team for accomplishing. If I would have told you this stat in 2011, would you have believed me? What about 2014? I know I wouldn’t have believed it. We, as fans, need to enjoy this period in Kentucky football. This is the beginning of the future of what will become a perennial power in the SEC East. I am confident of that. Kentucky football will be in an SEC Championship game within the next five years. I guarantee it.
