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

Kentucky is one of just three schools to finish the season ranked in both football and basketball

The Kentucky football and basketball teams accomplished something together this season that very few others can say they did.

Both sports finished their respective seasons ranked in the final Coaches Poll, making them just one of three programs to accomplish that impressive feat.

The only schools on that list? Kentucky, LSU, and Michigan.

Kentucky had an average rank of ninth overall between both sports, good for the best in the nation. Behind them was LSU with an average rank of 11th, followed by Michigan with an average total of 12.5 overall. All three schools finished in the top-15 in both sports.

Several other schools were ranked in one sport and received votes in the other.

Kentucky also finished the season ranked No. 7 in basketball and No. 12 in football in the final AP Polls, as well.

Basketball AND football school.

    That’s crazy. It’s also pretty funny, when you think about the programs that SHOULD have been on that list, but aren’t. Ohio State is the most obvious no-show, when you consider their BB team was ranked the highest in the early season by the stupid NET ranking system. Also, LOL @ UofL.

    And for those who bitch about Mitch Barnhart I ask, feelin’ foolish right about now? (Hint: u should) Class programs, good results, great facilities upgrades and scandal free… and oh yea, solid GPAs. Good kids – good results.
