    UK FOOTBALL SINCE 2010:
    – OVERALL RECORD: 25-48 (34% wins)
    – SEC RECORD: 8-40 (16% wins)
    – NON CONFERENCE RECORD (excluding Louisville): 16-3 (84% wins)
    – LOUISVILLE: 1-5 (16% wins)
    While the numbers are bleak, when you break them down, the picture gets even bleaker.
    The only SEC teams UK has beaten: Vandy (2), South Carolina (3), Ole Miss, Tennessee, Mississippi St.
    Non-Conference Teams UK has beaten: 64% of UK’s wins have come against very poor competition.
    – Akron
    – Charleston (2)
    – WKU (2)
    – Central Michigan
    – Jacksonville St.
    – Kent St.
    – Samford
    – Miami (OH)
    – Alabama St.
    – UT Martin
    – Ohio
    – ULM
    – Louisiana Lafayette
    – Eastern Kentucky
    Non-Conference Teams who have beaten UK:
    – Pittsburg (in bowl) Note that Pitt is the only power 5 non-conference opponent UK has played and they didn’t choose to play them.
    – WKU (2) — worth noting that as soon as UK realized WKU was going to beat them consistently, they immediately stopped playing them. Classic UK move. They do it in all sports.

    WHAT UK MUST DO TO BE BOWL ELIGIBLE CONSISTENTLY:
    – Win the 3 non-conference cupcake games each year, even if this means avoiding high quality lower-level competition — like WKU. These 3 games must be won at all costs (including buying out opponents that are unexpectedly good (Southern Mississippi)
    – Must win 2 of 3 games against Vanderbilt, Missouri, and South Carolina each year. (with Muschamp likely to turn SC around, the Vandy / Mizzu games become must wins)
    – Must drop the game vs Louisville. It would be a PR nightmare, but it’s the right thing to do if your goal is to build your program. This allows you to schedule one more cupcake game, get 4 non-conference wins, and get into a bowl while only winning 2 real games (Mizzu / Vandy)
