The SEC Network’s Cole Cubelic freely speaks his mind; and does so frequently. He ruffled Golden Flake feathers throughout the south a year ago by ranking the Kentucky Wildcat offensive line as the top unit in the Southeastern Conference.

Cubelic made his case for the Cats early in the 2016 season and well before UK’s rushing attack became a hot topic for talking head conversations. In other words, he was first to bring attention to Mark Stoops’ high achieving Hog collection. He’s back at it again. This time he lists John Schlarman’s group third.
I concur with Cubelic’s list. Most will wait to see how the Wildcat big fellas execute without All SEC center Jon Toth. But if Cole ranks it 3rd, he must be awfully high on the projected 2-deep rotation. No college football analyst watches more film or studies the game more than the former Auburn center.
Full disclosure, he and I often communicate about all things college football. Cole’s a friend to Kentucky Sports Radio as well and is set to host the KSR radio show while Matt vacations. Give him a Twitter follow if you don’t do so already @colecubelic.
