University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

We’re No. 65!

Your University of Kentucky Wildcats football team is ranked 65th in Athlon Magazine’s preseason college football rankings. With the low ranking and the incredibly difficult schedule next season, it’ll be tough to reach the No. 1 spot in the polls in Mark Stoops’ first season. I guess we’ll have to wait a year.

Western Kentucky, UK’s first opponent, is ranked No. 91. Louisville is No. 10.

Go Cats.

    1 I guess somebody has to feed the trolls. And anyway, it’s Drew Siva-Franklin after their Derby shenanigans.

    Higher than I thought we would be. I figured high 70’s low 80’s.

    I’m sorry, but the only way WKU beat us last year was from incompetent coaching (which includes not developing players). Stoops can say all he wants that WKU would beat us right now, but we all know that’s a tactic to encourage his players/temper our expectations. The fact is, we have TONS more talent than WKU, and we will beat them heartily. No way they’re better than us.

    And of course, my math skills remain the same. Forget my previous post.

    #1 #2 #3 Technically if you wanted a more proper ribbing of Drew, you would say Drew Franklin de Siva. The “de Siva” in Spanish terms is like saying property of.

    That said I don’t believe Drew has any underlying intent to his posts. Drew’s good with me.

    We just make this stuff up. Some of it works out, Some of it doesn’t.

    This is a nice reminder that while Stoops is having great success in recruiting, it will take a while for the impact to be felt.

    If this were basketball, that would put us squarely on the “bubble” to make the field of 68.

    It’s a major improvement in national perception. Weren’t we the lowest rated BCS Conference team in the country at some point last season? I know we had the worst offense. Go Stoops!

    Beat UL and we’ll jump quite a bit.

    UK would be a hole lot hiher than 65 if it werent for teams taking up other spots like USC Michigan ohio state and loserville which stand no chance against SEC oponents. UK would easily go 9 wins or better outside the SEC
