    The Ongoing 2007 UK Football Thread

    I never thought I'd see it, but UK is ranked 14th in today's new AP poll. I think it's way too high, but we'll take it.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/polls?...ate=2007-09-23

    It's their highest ranking since they finished the 1977 season ranked 6th (10-1 record) and were banned from playing in a bowl due to being on probation.

    The bad news is that after next week, they're at #16 South Carolina and then host #2 LSU and #4 Florida. Do they have any chance of avoiding going 0-3 in those games? Furthermore, four of the six teams in the SEC East are in the top 16, and that doesn't include Tennessee. They could be among the best 25 teams in the country and still finish 5th out of six teams in their division.

    Re: Kentucky #14 in latest AP Poll

    There is some preliminary talks that--IF they win their next two games (FAU and South Carolina)--then an undefeated UK (6-0) hosting undefeated LSU (6-0) would make Lexington the host site for ESPN College Football Gameday on October 13.

    While that would be pretty cool, I personally think that the Thursday night game at South Carolina is going to be one of the tougher battles of the year for the Cats to win.

    Wow, having College Gameday in Lexington would be pretty amazing considering our football history of the past few decades.

    Wow! Fourteen! That's a lot higher than I thought they would climb. This could be a special season for the Cats but those three coming up are killers. South Carolina,LSU and Florida just dont' get much harder than that.

    They r good very will coached.
    They Block great.
    they can beat SC.
    Florida I don't know.
    LSU, that would take a miracle.
    But I hope they beat them all.
    They made me cry Saturday I want others to feel the pain.

    Simply amazing. It's been fun to watch these kids turn this program around and make people take notice.

    KY may be ranked too high...I don't know. The thing is, other good teams are losing while KY is winning so you can't knock their high ranking. The ride may not last long and they might be over-acheiving. Still, it's fun to watch and I hope they do well the rest of the season.

    Ask Tennessee fans the opposite question.

    Happiest guy in Lexington right now has to be Billy Clyde Gillispie...

    Because of the football team's success, all of the Herald Leader's column inches are being devoted to something other than UK basketball....or perhaps, certain tabloid stories that could be emerging about the UK basketball coach this VERY week.

    In actuality...those stories WOULD have already been written...were the football team were not front page news virtually every day.

    Come on, Blimpie, don't tease us like that. What's Clyde done? Is it bad?
