Thursday Headlines: Most Underrated in the SEC Edition

One CBS Sports panelist thinks the Cats are the most underrated team in the SEC.

Are the Kentucky Wildcats the most underrated team in the SEC?

One CBS Sports panelist thinks so in a recent breakdown of the conference.

Jerry Palm of CBS thinks people aren’t giving the Cats enough credit going into the season.

The Wildcats are the one of only two schools in the SEC that cares more about basketball than football. Nobody thinks about Kentucky football when the hoops season is almost upon us, yet Mark Stoops has turned things around for the Wildcats. Talk in the SEC East is all Georgia and Florida, but UK has tied for second in the division two of the last four years and finished third in the other two. The Wildcats may not yet be ready to win the division, but they are a team you better be ready to play.

Will Kentucky win the east this year? The odds are against them, but gone are the days when the Georgias and Floridas of the world can simply look past the Cats and coast to victory.

Mark Stoops likes to play with a chip on his shoulder, as the underdog. There are some who have doubts about Kentucky going into this season, and I’m sure he’d love to prove them wrong.
