Argument for Kentucky

Now I don't want to go all backwoods crazy Kentucky fan on you guys, but I do think that they have an argument for being a top 25 team in this weeks poll. Currently the Cats are sitting at 16-4 and 5-0 in the SEC. Now I realize this isn't a very strong SEC but they are currently showing very strong in their conference which is important. Of their 4 losses, two of them are legitamate, Louisville and North Carolina. The other two, VMI on the first game of the year and Miami are poor losses as a whole but both were early in the season. They have quality wins over Alabama, Tennessee, and West Virginia all away from Rupp Arena. They have won 11 of their last 12 and I think should be in the top 25, if anything just to have an SEC team ranked.

They are ranked....

Just to play devils advocate, 8 of Kentuckys wins have come against teams ranked above 200 in the RPI....that doesnt look good
