AP Top-25 released, Kentucky to play five of the Top-10

saban

With the college football season just two weeks away, many are putting the finishing touches on previews, prognostications, and preseason rankings. The most famous of college football rankings, the AP Top-25, was released today and it sees Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide of Alabama atop the list. Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford, and Georgia rounded out the top five. As it tradition, Kentucky will take on one of the nation’s most difficult schedules. In his first season as Kentucky head coach, Mark Stoops will be forced to do battle with #1 Alabama, #5 Georgia, #6 South Carolina, #9 Louisville, and #10 Florida.

The SEC also has two other teams ranked in the poll – 7th ranked Texas A&M and 12th ranked LSU. The entire list can be found by following this link to the AP’s site.

    Correction, 5 drubbing routs for kentucky. UofL is the only team of those 5 I see UK staying within 3 TD’s of, and that’s only in the 1st half. Patience people. Gonna be 2 more years before we turn the corner.

  3. Brutal, just brutal. I’m not normally in to moral victories, but this schedule is worse than what Pat Dye used to refer to as “Amen Corner” when he was at Auburn. If we can just give the effort in these games, that will have to be enough for this year, although hopefully UL is overrated and maybe we can sneek up on them.

    Anyway, GO CATS!!!

    If I give up that easy, I never own my trailer

  5. 2, it could be even longer than that when you see what Vandy is doing (the 1 team we used to almost always beat it seemed) and that UT is biuncing back on the recruiting trail. The SEC just gets tougher every year.

  6. Bouncing back…

    I don’t see why everybody is making a big deal out of UKs schedule. It’s like this every year.

  8. 4 = UL troll. Kinda funny still.

    Tough schedule but who is to say we cannot have an upset or two?

    Ridiculous. This is why I’d love to move to the ACC. Much better basketball games and a fighting chance in football.
    I imagine A&M will drop when Johnny Signs Footballs gets suspended.

    #9 sure we can have an upset….possible against Mizzou, Vandy, MSU or UT. Not against one of those brutes in the top 10. I think we can play UofL close until the emotion runs out in the 3rd Q. Then I fear UofL is gonna pour it on knowing they have such a weak schedule, they will have to beat an SEC team handily to keep their (delusional) BCS hopes alive.

    With that schedule UL would be 5-7

    12 UL is better, but not so much better that they can just pull away at will…their staff knows this, that’s why they scheduled so cowardly

    7- um no. we dont play bama every year and UF, UGA, USC & (especially) UofL are not all in the top 10 every year.

    I feel your pain, BUT…there’s that sweet tasty SEC Channel money. What do you think is upgrading CWS and 2 campus classroom buildings? It ain’t the pop corn sales.

    Move to the ACC and suddenly see a TREMENDOUS drop in UKAA income. It’s Football that pays the way, and ACC Football is not going to generate the revenue that SEC Football does.

    14, get your facts straight! Had it not been for the Big East implosion, we would’ve had Boise State, TCU, and San Diego State on the schedule this year. Not our fault the conference blew up and everyone either started their own league or decided not to come. Besides, once we get into the ACC next year, there won’t be anymore “the Cards schedule cream puffs!” Heck, the UK administration are the ones trying to kill the annual rivalry.
