Kentucky falls out of Top 15 in Coaches Poll

Kentucky dropped two spots in the AP Poll to No. 15 following the loss to Auburn, and they’re down in the Coaches Poll as well. The Cats fell three spots to No. 16, while Auburn jumped six spots to No. 10. Again, I don’t think many people watched that game because the Tigers definitely didn’t seem like a top ten squad to me.

Regardless, here’s the rest of the Coaches Poll, which still has Baylor on top, followed by Gonzaga, Kansas, San Diego State, and Louisville:

    We don’t deserve top 15 but we can still win it all we gotta be more disciplined and get tougher. These young men can play ball it’s a will vs skill thing right now

    The polls don’t mean squat this year. Any top 30 team can beat another one. Kentucky just needs to take care of business once the Big Dance starts.

      Exactly. It wasn’t that long ago people said Ohio State was the best team in the nation. Now look where they are.

    We go on the road and win against a ranked team we move up 1 or 2 spots.

    Auburn wins at home and jumps up 6.

      A lot of that had to do with just about everybody above them losing.

    LSU is underrated.
    SDSU and Dayton have one top 25 win between them, Iowa.
    Really like Cals coaching job this year so far and love our backcourt. If Sestina/Montgomery/Brooks could just take it up a notch, we’d be set. Saturday was a good loss.
