When people talk to you about the Kentucky Wildcats, the thing they bring up most often is the fact that the program’s a basketball program which happens to play a bit of football. And with former Jared Lorenzen suddenly in the news for, er, eating Jared Lorenzen, the school’s football program’s been a source of laughter for many.

But with former Kentucky defensive star Danny Trevathan helping to take the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl, ‘Big Blue’ winning  a basketball game comfortably and Mark Stoops having a solid National Signing Day, things might be changing in Lexington with this good few weeks.

Kentucky got into the news a few days ago when fDT Matt Elam decided he wasn’t going to play for Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa, but was going to play in Kentucky.

He’ll help to solidify Kentucky’s defense, which was added to with DE Denzel Ware, the No.113 player in the nation and 14 other defensive signings, highlighted by DE Lloyd Tubman, who decided to de-commit from Penn State to play in the SEC.

Offensively, they added QB Drew Barker, who was recruited heavily by SEC East rival South Carolina.

Kentucky has been ranked No.16 in the nation by Rivals and No.22 by 24-7.
