    Ok… so we have 3 guys on the horizon that look like UK and those 3 are Darius West, Mike Edwards and Derek Kief. When we add them they will add 316 points to our team total. We would go from 727 points to 1043 – good enough for 7th in the nation. Add Elam and thats another 105pts. Add Berrios thats another 105pts. Add WARE, and thats another 105 points.

    If we go 3 for 3 that gives us a total of 1358pts with only 13 players committed.

    How the rankings work. The top 20 highest rated players in a particular teams class are the only ones that count.

    UK with who they have now has 727pts.
    UK with Edwards, West and Kief- 1043pts
    UK with Elam, Berrios and Ware – 1358pts with 7 more spots

    for comparison: Here is UK’s total team points with 20 players the last 5 years:

    2013- 1642 (stoops)
    2012- 504pts (Joker)
    2011- 357pts (Joker)
    2010- 742pts (Joker)
    2009- 646pts

    So Stoop has doubled our pts in his first year. In his second year class he has 6 players that total for more points than the best class of the past 5 years….WOW

    Yeah, what #3 said. Come on, KSR, and help spread the word. One of Lexington’s home-grown businesses is in trouble due to a whacky lawsuit. Let’s support our local brew!

    I see people are swallowing the West Sixth public relations campaign hook, line, and sinker. They make good beer, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a sheep.

    Drew, that #22 RB ranking for Horton is not accurate, that is his old position ranking. The new position rankings will be released on Thursday and he should check in at around #13.

    Big S/O to @4 for the good info. It really is amazing to see how different the numbers are when it is broken down. Hopefully this trend continues in the future.
