I think we all saw this one coming a mile away. The Kentucky Wildcats find themselves out of the top 25 again with an 0-2 week. This latest smack in the face comes after a road loss to Florida, the loss of Nerlens Noel, and an embarrassing blow out against Tennessee. I’m not sure how things could get worse at this point. They say bad things come in threes but the ‘Cats can count this as number four.

The top five is composed of Indiana, Miami, Gonzaga, Michigan State and Florida. Miami and Gonzaga? Yeah, college basketball is messed up this season.

Kentucky is no longer receiving votes for the poll.

ESPN college Game Day is still coming whether this team is really worthy of it or not. There are 13,000 tickets still available. A few years ago, Kentucky set the attendance record for an ESPN College Game Day crowd. I wouldn’t expect that to happen with the way things are trending at the moment. Kentucky fans are upset and not too thrilled with the attitude of this team. I still think there will be a very large crowd and the bulk 0f those 13,000 tickets will be sold between now and Saturday.

Kentucky’s performance at home against a truly awful Vanderbilt team tomorrow night will have a lot to do with the future of the Game Day crowd.
