Kentucky Falls to 81st in Sagarin Ratings

Jeff Sagarin is known for many things.  Not really, he’s actually only known for rating various sports like basketball, golf, and soccer at USAToday.com.  The rating system that gains him the most notoriety, however, is college football.  After yesterday’s 38 point defeat to Florida, Kentucky has fallen to #81 in the poll, with a rating of 66.47.  This places Joker’s Wildcats immediately behind Western Michigan, Air Force, and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Next week’s opponent, South Carolina, is currently ranked 5th with a rating of 89.85.  To see how many points the Gamecocks are favored by simply add three points to Kentucky’s rating to signify home-field advantage and subtract that total from South Carolina’s total.  After computing that we learn that Kentucky enters Saturday’s match-up as 20 point underdogs.

 

Other teams of note.

#1.  Alabama (99.96)

#3. LSU (91.72)

#6. Florida (89.84)

#10. Georgia (88.46)

#43. Louisville (75.46)

#46. Tennessee (75.01)

#99. Indiana (62.78)

    If the Vegas line is only 20, I’ll get rich! They will be up more than that by halftime. We are UK. We are AWFUL!

    Personally, I would like to see Rob Ryan as the next head coach! Now would he leave Dallas? That’s the big question but I like how his defense plays and I think he could whip this team into shape.

    That means about 40 other D1 teams are worse than us. Yay! And Im tired of hearing people wanting Bobby Petrino. Id rather have Joker stay than him come here. But for some awful reason (I have no idea why I feel this way) I can see UK pulling ) more wins somewhere out of their ass and two of those being significant wins, and Joker getting to keep his job one more year. I hope and pray Im wrong

    That was supposed to say 4 more wins (see comment above)

    No we are not Neal Brown. Bobby Petrino!

    We DO NOT want Bobby Petrino. A. Brainfart would never speak to him. B. Petrino would never come – he could never co-exist in the shadow of a b-ball coach who outclasses him in all regards (remember, Ricky Three Stacks was a fellow slime ball). C. Winning isn’t worth having a confirmed lier and adulterer wear UK blue.

    I hate Louisville as much (more than most) as anyone, but this poll has North Carolina ranked 29th. Louisville beat them and they ae 43. Adjust your formula Jeff.
