LSU Columnist Ranks UK 7th in SEC Weekly Rankings

Searching around other SEC sites can sometimes be entertaining, especially during a bye week.  In terms of weekly rankings, it’s always fun to read about Kentucky football on the rise.  Well, over at Nola.com, Ron Higgins has the Cats ranked 7th overall in the SEC.  Here’s his opinion on Kentucky:

It’s still hard to get a read on the Wildcats. The same team that beat South Carolina and Missouri is the same one that almost got beat by Eastern Kentucky in overtime last Saturday. What a bunch of crazy ‘Cats!

What makes this so interesting you say?  It’s who he ranked behind Kentucky.  Coming in at #9, Mississippi St.  #10 goes to our next opponent, Auburn.

Even in an off-week, things got worse for the Tigers. On Monday, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn tossed star receiver and former East St. John star D’haquille Williams off the team. Williams certainly didn’t hide his frustration about Auburn’s quarterback struggles.

No, no he didn’t.  Williams took out his frustration by punching four people in the face at a bar.  Continuing through the rankings, he has future opponents Tennessee at #12 and Vandy at #14.  I like Higgins’ opinion on the Vols the best.

If Tennessee truly wants to play in games like it practices, maybe Vols’ coach Butch Jones should use a microphone to scream at his team as loudly as he does on the practice field rattling windows in a half-mile vicinity.

So if these weekly rankings hold up for the remainder of the season, and Kentucky can beat the teams he has ranked behind them, we’re looking at a 7-1 record heading into Athens, GA.  How nice would that be?  I know, this bye week has me dreaming, but it’s not impossible.

Is it Thursday yet?

    Rankings like this tell you the supposed order but not the separation. There may be an insignificant difference between No. 7 and Nos. 9 and 10. You can’t assume No. 7 will beat either of them.
