CBS Ranks Southern Miss Ahead of UK

Unlike most college football polls, the CBS college football poll includes all 128 FBS teams, not just the Top 25.  For those who are looking for another reason to worry about the season opener against Southern Miss, enjoy.

Southern Miss is ranked No. 34 compared to Kentucky at No. 74.  While it would not be a shock to see a 2015 bowl team ranked higher than a team that did not reach the postseason, a separation of 40 schools between the two comes as a shock.

Ranking UK’s FBS Opponents 

34. Southern Miss

26. Florida

100. South Carolina

1. Alabama

89. Vanderbilt

71. Mississippi State

75. Missouri

19. Georgia

12. Tennessee

20. Louisville

    If we start the season out with a loss to Southern Miss, expect an average of 10,000 fans the rest of the year and fans calling for Stoops head.

      That’s the only way I see Stoops getting fired this year instead of next — if we lose the opener. Which is a real possibility. If he wins that game and the rest of the cupcakes but loses all the rest of the games, Barnhart will give him one more year. Which will screw the next coach because if we don’t go to a bowl game this year then recruiting is going to really suffer going forward.

      I hope we win 13 games. I just don’t see that happening. If we win 4-5 like I think we are going to, then Stoops will hang around at least one more year. I don’t see him being the long term solution.

  3. Can we just lay the wood to them already?

    We will beat them by a minimum of 17 points. Wait and see. I can’t wait for some of these “fans” above me to writhe in the awkwardness. What is wrong with you people? SUPPORT YOUR COACH, SUPPORT YOUR TEAM, OR STFU.

    I like it. That means it will be a quality win when we beat that ass. Vegas has us by 7.

    Drop this game and Stoops is toast. MAYBE the best outcome for we, the cash paying fans…

    17 points? I’ll take So Miss and give you 2 to 1 odds.

    They’re a better team. They may not win since it’s a road game but there’s no way in hell they lose by 17 points.
