PPF ranks Kentucky No. 19 in preseason poll

The Kentucky football team has found plenty of bulletin board material going into the 2019 season, and Pro Football Focus wanted to make sure they didn’t add to the list.

In their official preseason poll, PFF ranked Kentucky No. 19 overall and ninth in the SEC.

SEC foes ahead of the Cats? Alabama (2), LSU (3), Georgia (4), Florida (8), Auburn (13), Texas A&M (14), Mississippi State (15), and Missouri (17).

Take a look at the entire list:

In not-so-optimistic news, Athlon Sports has Kentucky at No. 48 in their preseason rankings:

Meanwhile, ESPN, USA Today, and CBS Sports failed to include the Wildcats in their preseason top-25 rankings.

While Kentucky lost a lot of talent on both sides of the football from their historic 10-3 season, the Cats still have elite playmakers at their disposal, depth, and a solid mix of young talent and seasoned veterans.

While coaches always tend to be optimistic going into every season, guys like Mark Stoops, Vince Marrow, Brad White, Lynn Bowden, and Kash Daniel all touched on their program not getting enough National during their appearance on KSR on Tuesday.

I guess they’ll have to prove to Pro Football Focus why they are right and everyone else why they are wrong again this season.

I like my team.

    Missouri? Ahead of us? What? Why?

      Kelly Bryant is there. Remember he was a 5-star QB, led Clemson to the title game. Won ACC player of the year. Was benched for the golden boy so he transferred to Mizzou and sat out a year. Missouri is legit.

      Delray… That may be the case but Kelly Bryant torched a weak ACC before getting rolled by Bama in the Natty. Loses the starting job to true freshman Trevor in the second game of the season. Trevor makes it to the Natty and torches a possibly better Bama team. Bryant has never impressed me and I blame that partially on me trying to compare him to Deshaun Watson. Also, Kelly Bryant never had to sit out, he was cleared for immediate play.

      Missouri is mediocre at best.

    19 seems fair, but I like my team against those listed 14-18

    So how long before Bama fans start bellyaching about Saban, now that Clemson has passed them up? 🙂

    Definitely a top 20 team. Pretty good company if you ask me
