Kentucky doesn't seem to want to 'test the water' by playing other BCS schools in the non conference schedule. There seems to be a debate on why we do or don't. We have been doing so since the inclusion of the twelfth game on the schedule.
Would beating someone of BCS caliber in the regular season benefit the program?
Some say going to a minor bowl hasn't really benefited the Cats. Others say the extra practice is good.
I think it would be interesting to see what the readers of ASOB think the reason is.
