The latest AP Poll has been released, and as expected, the Kentucky Wildcats took a bit of a tumble.

After their loss to Texas A&M on Saturday night, the Cats slipped from No. 13 to No. 18, a similar five-spot drop to the Coaches Poll released earlier today.

As mentioned earlier, this is the third consecutive week Kentucky has found themselves in the AP Poll, the first time since 2007.

In other SEC news, Alabama held steady at No. 1, followed by Georgia at No. 2. LSU and Florida came in at No. 13 and No. 14, respectively, followed by Auburn at No. 21, Texas A&M at No. 22, and Mississippi State at No. 24. Out of eight ranked SEC opponents, Kentucky came in as the fifth-best overall and third-best in the SEC East.

Kentucky fell in the Coaches Poll from No. 15 to No. 20.

    So we win @ Florida something the #5 team couldn’t do and now Florida is ranked higher than us?

      And Texas A&M just beat us and we are ahead of them. Polls and NCAA football are a joke. Any time you can be in a playoff and not even win your division, not your conference but your half of it, the system is a joke. Suckeyes got in a couple years agoand Bama last year. They basically got rewarded for losing and not having to play in the conference title game.

      Because everyone sees that our QB sucks and Cannot throw the football. He’s taking too long to throw because his visualization of safe passes to receivers “covered” is not natural such as what u will see say Drew Lock passes at Missouri or the Majority of SEC caliber QBs. Wilson forces passes or under throw passes. He has no touch or finesse like Gunner Hoak. He’s dangerous and needs replaced.

    We beat Florida, and everybody said Gators were no good…and they beat #5 LSU. We beat MIssissippi State, and everybody said State was no good…and they beat #8 Auburn. Polls are basically worthless.
    But the voters obviously watched our game; and, they noticed our coaching staffs’ philosophy of ignoring our strengths, and relying on our weaknesses.

    Thanks, Eddie, for letting us drop in the polls. If you think otherwise, you’re an idiot.

      Oh shut up. We are 5-1

      Make me…. 6-0 is better than 5-1. Your expectations are so low. Pathetic.

      Terry Wilson has had one decent game. His arm isn’t the problem it’s touch and decision making. At least Hoak can get the receivers the ball. Benny and our defense got us to 5-1. Wilson only got us to 2-0.

    Teams have off games. It happens. Our defense is great but our offense had a bad game. Put it this way. Benny ran for 70 yds. Our total offense was around 200 yards. We couldnt move anything and played terrible. All that said, we went to OT with a 22 ranked team at one of the biggest college venues in the nation seating 100K fans and it was a night game. The fact we lost the way we did should speak to what type of team we have.

    SEC with eight ranked! Let’s go. Must-win at Mizzou three weeks.

    We’re ranked. Kentucky football is ranked in the top 25. how many have waited decades to say this? bad game, yup. But remember last year, when we were un-ranked? Year before that, year before that, year before that…. ?

    Thank you Coach Gran ,Coach Stoops, every last coach we have and every last player!

    KENTUCKY FOOTBALL IS RANKED IN THE TOP 25 and last game aside, in which our QB was tight and scared and a half-step behind, a game in which, there were some bad decisions in HINDSIGHT, we have played an AMAZING, UN-KENTUCKY-LIKE SEASON so far, with MORE TO COME!

    Looking forward to NEXT GAME!

    I make mistakes every week in my job that are not fireable mistakes. The only mistake is the mistake not learned from. Usually, the people around me know when I do make a mistake so the best thing to do is to own it, apologize and move on. It was (in hindsight) a mistake to not give Benny the ball on 3rd down in OT. Eddie owned it. Time to move on!

      So ditch the 5-1 QB (with wins over FLORIDA, USC & Mississippi St.)? Gotcha- you’re a moron.

      Gunnar Hoak already showed he can’t even throw the ball as good as Terry. Terry is not the reason we lost last night. Eddie Gran is. And he admitted that he messed up. I’m pissed, you’re pissed. Oh well. Last year if we played like that we wouldve got blown out. This year it took a legit good team overtime to beat us at our worst. Move on, and GET UP!!!!

      U 2 are ignorant. We have won because of the defense and Benny…that’s it! Not TERRIFIED TERRY. Gunnar scores in 55 seconds!
