Three Kentucky Wildcats named First Team All-SEC

Eight seasons into the Mark Stoops Era, Kentucky Football is finally getting some respect.

On Tuesday, released its annual Preseason All-SEC honors, which are voted on by the league’s football information directors, and THREE Kentucky Wildcats made the First Team: center Drake Jackson, offensive tackle Darian Kinnard, and punter Max Duffy. Kentucky’s trio of first teamers on offense is the second most of any school in the league behind Alabama, who had four. This is not a moment, it’s a movement, folks.

Defensive lineman Josh Paschal also made the Second Team on defense. When it comes to season predictions, well, they’re a little more predictable. The 14 football information directors picked Kentucky to finish fifth in the East, ninth overall, just behind Tennessee and South Carolina.

1. Alabama (168)
2. Georgia (149)
3. (tie) LSU (139)
3. (tie) Florida (139)
5. Auburn (124)
6. Texas A&M (109)
7. Tennessee (93)
8. South Carolina (82)
9. Kentucky (80)
10. Mississippi State (60)
11. Ole Miss (54)
12. Missouri (38)
13. Arkansas (20)
14, Vanderbilt (19)

    ITS A SHAME on the SEC and the whole NCAA that reporters can’t see talent it’s obvious why they never coached bc they assume way too much.. Jimbo is by far the most overrated coach in America.. I mean if you can’t control your own home how can you get kids to buy in.. watch out for the boys in blue and as bad as I hate to say it Tennessee could be that team as well..

    And they forgot about Landon, probably because of the injury. By end of season he will be on that list.

    Me likey! Except for the #9 prediction.

    I suppose if Stoops goes 15-0 they MIGHT finally pick us to finish ahead of USC. Brother.
