Off Campus: Senior Standouts
Once again it’s time for my top-5 list of noteworthy stuff from the past week in college golf. This will appear each Monday in Blog U. throughout the college season.
If the Kentucky men’s team gets the invite to regional play, this past week could likely be the reason. The Wildcats went 19-8 last week after a second-place showing at the Palmas Del Mar Intercollegiate and then an eighth-place finish at the Schenkel E-Z-GO Invitational. Kentucky has its best won-loss record on the year at 64-54-1 and is holding steady at No. 57 (UK finished the fall at No. 72) in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
For the sake of this item, let’s just say the Magic Number to get into the men’s postseason will fall at No. 65 – meaning the top 65 teams would be safe (we all know this is not exact, but time has showed us the Golfweek/Sagarin numbers are usually not off more than a spot or two). Looking at the updated rankings, the following teams would be crossed off due to a less than .500 record: No. 27 Arizona State, No. 38 Coastal Carolina, No. 45 Vanderbilt, No. 47 North Carolina State, No. 48 Augusta State, No. 61 Georgia State and No. 64 Northwestern.
