Twelve ESPN writers put their heads together to create a list ranking all 128 FBS schools based on the historical impact the program has made on the sport.  After ranking each school on a scale of 1-10, it was hard to find Kentucky. The Cats ranked No. 62 with an average of 3.33.  Other schools in similar standing: Northwestern, SMU, Maryland, Duke and the Air Force Academy.  Louisville was tied for 41st with an average of 4.92. If this shocks you, you haven't been a Kentucky football fan for long. [ESPN: What Should Be Considered College Football Royalty?]
