The new USA Today Coaches Poll is out, and despite two encouraging performances in the past week, Kentucky remains at #19. I didn’t believe it until I actually saw it, but after another loss, Duke fell out of the poll for the first time since the end of the 2006-2007 season:

    Stayed same in both polls…I guess we’ll take it with the loss. Still think we shoulda made up a little ground with an OT performance at AFH, but it will help keep our guys hungry

    I hate to say this but…….

    Kentucky will get thumped by Texas A & M Saturday and say bye to the Top 25.

      That’s going to be really hard to lose to Texas A&M on Saturday since they don’t play them until February 20th.

      RVKCAT, I agree, I have a hard time trusting the prediction of a guy who can’t understand a calendar.

    Aside from a win, the only thing that could have made the Kentucky-Kansas game better would have been that goose-stepping Ref from the Vandy game.
