UK Fans of the Day want a Preseason Top 25 Roundup

N’Faly Dante’s decision to reclassify and go to Oregon could be the final domino to fall ahead of the 2019-20 college basketball season. In turn, outlets across the internet updated their preseason rankings. Here’s where your University of Kentucky Wildcats stand with 83 days until the season opener:

ESPN’s Jeff Borzello

1. Michigan State
2. Kansas
3. Kentucky
4. Florida
5. Louisville

CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish

1. Michigan State
2. Duke
3. Kentucky
4. Louisville
5. Kansas

NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster

1. Michigan State
2. Kentucky
3. Duke
4. Kansas
5. Villanova

Jon Rothstein

1. Michigan State
2. Louisville
3. Kentucky
4. Kansas
5. Duke

To summarize my thoughts on Rothstein putting Louisville ahead of Kentucky, here’s 14 seconds of Kahlil Whitney hitting a tire with a sledgehammer:

    I dont understand all the love for Kansas. They lost so many people and brought in basically no one. They’ll drop outta the rankings in no time.

      What? They brought back De Sousa, Dodson, and Azubuike who was probably the most dominant big man in college before getting hurt. They lost Vick, a total headcase, and Grimes to transferring who was kinda a disappointment for them anyways.

      They def deserve to be highly ranked

      I agree they should be rated high but they lost their best player from last year as well Lawson didn’t they?

      Yeah, but Azubuike is better than Lawson. They will be good…but the trend for this is not.
      Self’s recruiting has dropped off significantly. Wow. All 4 guys are outside the top 50…with 2 outside top 100.

      And Azubuike staying healthy an entire season is a BIG if.

    Kansas deserves no tourney, scholarship losses, and a new hair piece for Bill Self that’s what they deserve.

    Didn’t see Memphis in there. Thought they were supposed to be in top 2 or 3.
