Friday Headlines: Phil Steele on Kentucky Football Edition – A Sea Of Blue

Filed under:
Steele has Kentucky finishing behind Louisville in the final AP poll.
Before each College Football season, Phil Steele annually releases a magazine previewing the season for certain teams and how he believes that specific team’s season will shake out. Kentucky fans will disagree with Steele’s assessment of their team, as he has the Wildcats finishing 35th in the final Associated Press poll.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, he has Kentucky finishing two spots behind Louisville. Ouch. Steele is apparently big on returning production vs. a team losing key contributors from the previous season, which leads to explaining his thought process with Kentucky. The Wildcats did indeed lose two thirds of their receiving yards from last season, two stud offensive linemen and two playmakers on the defensive side of the ball. However, they also did an excellent job returning a haul of experienced players while bringing in recruits that are ready to play as freshman.
The Wildcats also have a pretty tough schedule this season with multiple games away from home that are expected to be a real battle. So, the Wildcats could be “better” this year but also not win 10 games like they did a season ago. The season begins in just 50 days.
