Breaking news: the NCAA just announced it will fill extra bowl games with teams with 5-7 records based on Academic Progress Rate (APR). This means Kentucky is out. The highest APRs of the 5-7 teams remaining are in, in order, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas State, Minnesota, San Jose State, Illinois, and Rice. Kentucky’s score, 945, falls well below the scores from those programs.
The extra practices would have been nice, but this is probably for the best. Time to take this season around the shed and put it to bed.
