Kentucky slides in the latest AP Poll

tumblr_lqp6jj5byL1qejbiro1_1280

It was expected, but after an overtime win over Georgia and a 22-point drubbing at Florida, Kentucky fell seven spots in the latest AP Poll to 15th. Six teams in the AP Top 10 lost on Saturday, so this week’s poll looks pretty different from last week’s, although undefeated Gonzaga is still #1:

      Kansas lost AT HOME to 13 – 8 Iowa State, and remained at # 3. They’s lost 2 of their last 4 games, and plummeted (not) in the polls.

    ACC has 5 teams in the Top 25, SEC has 3. Where’s that huge discrepancy?

    Everyone in the top 25 other than Gonzaga and St. Mary’s would beat UK right now.

    Should be ranked lower.

    Not saying what they will be, but what I’ve seen in the last month, anything better then 25 I think is being generous, just being honest, I hope this is as low as they will go, maybe they won’t loose anymore and go straight back up to about # 4. GO CATS!

      That would be nice, but there is nothing they can do with the remaining schedule that would put them back to #4, short of everyone ahead of them going into a tailspin. This NCAAT might require some 2014 magic. And with the parity that exists this season, I think that is a possibility.

    15 is overrated…
