University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Let’s take a minute and appreciate this stat

UK Athletics has never been better than it is at this moment. Let that sink in. In the history of a proud athletic program the Cats have never been better across the board, and this doesn’t include the spring sports where UK will be nationally ranked in a couple sports, too.

And not to get picky, but I don’t think Kansas is better than UK in men’s basketball (although I get it). Also, UK being at No. 12 given its resume in football seems to be a bit of a slight. The Cats are the only football team to have a road win against a team currently ranked in the top 10.

UK volleyball is undefeated in the SEC (8-0) and Kentucky men’s soccer has lost just one game on the season and has notched top five wins against Louisville and Indiana in the out-of-conference. I don’t know too much about UK’s women’s swimming or rifle, but the rifle team seems to always be competing for titles.

Kentucky women’s soccer is rebuilding and obviously Matthew Mitchell’s women’s basketball program is doing more of the same. Before the strange string of transfers a couple years ago UK women’s basketball was consistently in the top 20 and it seems it’s only a matter of time before the Cats return to being a force in the SEC.

Things are amazing for Barnhart’s athletic program and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that as the facilities across the campus improve, the team’s improve, too. Also, no probation is nice, unlike some other schools we know.

And it’s not just athletics, folks. Watch out, country.

    Why does cheerleading never get a nod in these kinds of things?

      I think maybe it’s not cheerleading season(?) if that exists. Maybe it’s a year-round thing, but the Championship is in March or April, right? Around the completion of March Madness, if I recall. Maybe I’m remembering that wrong. They are DEFINITELY the most decorated though. They don’t get the love they deserve. From what I understand, it’s UK in a league of their own, and then everyone else battles for second place.

      How did Terry Wilson get in this picture? Benny should have been in his place. Hey KSR, I can’t even post a regular comment unless I click on other posters comment to MAKE A COMMENT. The comment section has been inundated with garbage ads and I can’t scroll forever to make a comment. Please find a new web developer with some good UX knowledge (user experience).

      They don’t really care about UX nor the comment section. They need to make money for what they do, so something has to give

    I just wish we still had that amazing track athlete that went pro on the UK track team.
