Sports On Earth, a website dedicated to sports played on the third planet from the sun, has a very, very, very early preseason ranking of all college football teams for the 2016 season.
Alabama is the Sports on Earth’s preseason No. 1 team, with your University of Kentucky Wildcats falling a close 57 spots behind:
58. Kentucky. Questions persist as to whether Kentucky will ever get over the hump. The offense will turn to former touted recruit Drew Barker with Patrick Towles transferring, and Cincinnati coordinator Eddie Gran comes in to call the plays. After two 5-7 seasons, Mark Stoops really needs to take advantage of a weakened SEC East and get the Wildcats back to a bowl game, especially with all of the backs and receivers returning.

Southern Miss, Kentucky’s first opponent, is ranked 14 spots ahead of the Cats.
Here is where all of the teams on next year’s schedule rank:
44. Southern Miss (Home)
24. Florida (Away)
113. New Mexico State (Home)
61. South Carolina (Home)
1. Alabama (Away)
67. Vanderbilt (Home)
37. Mississippi State (Home)
54. Missouri (Away)
22. Georgia (Home)
13. Tennessee (Away)
— Austin Peay (Home)
21. Louisville (Away)
That leaves only two SEC teams, Vanderbilt and South Carolina, ranked lower than Kentucky.
