  1. I expected this with the way UK closed out the season. Sad to see.

  2. They played good enough most of the year to earn getting in but when they needed to show that they belonged they didn’t come thru for whatever reasons. They went from very good to very bad so they didn’t get cheated.

  3. You have to have a winning conference record to get in, period.
