The News-Enterprise BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Many expect it to be a rebuilding year for the Kentucky Wildcats. The Southeastern Conference coaches apparently agree. Out of the 12 SEC squads, Kentucky was the only one not to land a first-team selection on the Southeastern Conference Coaches Pre-Season All-SEC Football Team, which was announced Monday. In all, the Wildcats had five players named to the 81-player team. Senior offensive lineman Garry Williams was named to the second-team offense, while junior defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon and junior defensive back Trevard Lindley were named to the second-team defense. Linebackers Micah Johnson, a junior, and Braxton Kelley, a senior, were selected to the third-team defense. Kentucky had no players named to a special teams squad. Defending national champion LSU led all teams with 14 selections. Florida totaled 10, including five first-team selections. Defending Sugar Bowl champ Georgia pulled in nine selections, while Alabama, Auburn and South Carolina each received eight. Tennessee had seven, while Kentucky’s five landed it in eighth. Ole Miss and Mississippi State each had four, Arkansas had three and Vanderbilt received one.
