AP All Time Top 100 – KENTUCKY #1 ALL TIME PROGRAM (not that we already didn’t know that)

KENTUCKY #1 ALL TIME PROGRAM

Tell us something we already didn’t know. If you haven’t seen “The List” check it out here, it has some jaw dropping historical numbers.

Some numbers from AP All-Time Top 100 are as follows:

75.37% of all polls
Jan. 18, 1949 (first-ever poll)
124
1950s, appeared in 89.63% of polls, but 1990s were close with 89.33%.
1960s, appeared in 59.59% of polls.
The Wildcats have missed appearing at least once in the poll for only three seasons during the 68-year history of the AP poll, the fewest poll-less seasons of any program. Those seasons were 1952-1953, 1988-1989, and 1989-1990.”
It’s interesting to note that his decade could end up being the best all time once completed.
The Top 10 lookes like this:
1 – Kentucky
2 – North Carolina
3 – Duke
4 – UCLA
5 – Kansas
6 – Indiana
7 – Louisville
8 – Arizona
9 – Syracuse
10 – Cincinnati

#1 Oklahoma plays #2 Kansas tonight.

Both are true. Crazy top 25 sees the Cats move up in both polls as we prepare for a huge road game at LSU. Lil Bro moves up 2 spots to 16. Duke does their usual climb back into the top 10 in one poll.

Maybe the biggest difference overall in both polls ever witnessed, check it out.
