Kentucky football ranked last in SEC in arrests


Kentucky often finds itself at the bottom of the Southeastern Conference in several statistical categories. But this last place ranking is one it can be proud of.

According to Saturday Down South, the Kentucky football program was one of four league teams with zero arrests in 2015, giving it a tie with South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Missouri for the lowest in the conference.

Florida led the way with eight arrests in Jim McElwain’s first year in Gainesville, ahead of national champion Alabama’s six arrests:

Florida: 8
Alabama: 6
Mississippi State: 6
LSU: 5
Georgia: 4
Ole Miss: 4
Tennessee: 4
Arkansas: 3
Auburn: 1
Texas A&M: 1
South Carolina: 0
Vanderbilt: 0
Missouri: 0
Kentucky: 0

The four teams with zero arrests happened to be the four worst teams in the conference, while Florida and Alabama were the divisional champs.

    So what this all means is until we increase the number of arrests we won’t contend for a division or conference championship? #faultylogic

      I feel like your taking this post as a plea from drew to have more kentucky players arrested… (pun intended)

      No. What I said is faulty logic. I was joking. It has nothing to do with Drew.

    Moral of the story to be good you gotta be bad.

    I am finally glad to see us ranked at the bottom of something that matters. Proud that they represent UK in this manner. Go Cats! However, they may need a little more toughness.

    Saturday Down South went on to publish a report of 4 year arrest totals. Vandy was listed with 2. UK listed with 15. Not sure where SDS is getting these totals, but couldn’t help remember the national coverage of the 5 Vandy Football players arrested in 2013 for rape …so SDS credibility of such rankings is about that of Dan Dakich ranking point guards
