The Wildcats are officially contenders. Forget all the hoopla about the Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, Volunteers, or even the Bulldogs. The only team you should be watching in the SEC this fall is the Kentucky Wildcats. This is all because they have officially put a championship trophy in their trophy case. And, as everyone knows, once you have a trophy in your trophy case, you are officially considered legit in the SEC.
That’s right. The 1950 Kentucky Wildcats have finally gotten the credit they deserve. That 1950 team beat consensus national champion Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl and finished 7th in the AP rankings. But don’t let that fool you. The Sagarin Ratings, a system created in 1978, decided to apply their model to previous years, and voila! The Wildcats were crowned national champions.
What better way to celebrate the occasion than by creating your own trophy and putting it on display for all of your athletes and potential recruits to see?
This is a dynasty in the making. Once that first trophy arrives, they come in bunches. Kentucky is going 15-0. Book it.
Side note: Is this worse than Florida State making state champs rings?.
