Podcast: Who voted for Kentucky in the AP college football poll?

Kentucky received one vote in The Associated Press preseason college football poll released Monday.

Who was the voter who included the Cats in his or her Top 25?

That would be longtime Gainesville Sun columnist Pat Dooley. I talked to Pat about why he put UK No. 25 on his ballot. We also talked about the Sept. 8 Kentucky-Florida game, new Florida head coach Dan Mullen and the fiasco at Ohio State involving former Florida coach Urban Meyer.

Also in this podcast is Kentucky special teams coach Dean Hood, who talked after practice Thursday about the kicker competition involving Miles Butler and Chance Poore, kickoff specialist Grant McKinniss and punter Max Duffy. Hood also talked about who might replace Charles Moushey, the special teams star, especially on punt coverage, last season.

We discussed the unofficial close of Kentucky’s training camp, the quarterback competition, the bright spots and the questions heading into game week. The Cats open the season Sept. 1 against Central Michigan at Kroger Field.
