LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – More news for Joker Phillips to inhale. I didn't say bad news. I simply said news. 

Phil Steele, one of the gurus of college football, is very impressed with Kentucky's football schedule this season.

In fact, Steele is so impressed that he ranks Kentucky's schedule the fourth-most difficult schedule in the game. Steele ranked the schedule by using pre-season rankings, game against possible national championship contenders, games against bowl opponents and other factors.

That's correct – Number Four, behind Ole Miss, Missouri and Notre Dame.

Of course, like most observers Steele gives the Southeastern Conference all the love it could possibly need.

How do I know that?

Because Steele uses his criteria to show how seven of the top eight and nine of the top 11 schedules in the nation are played by SEC teams. Even if you love the SEC, that seems a tad self-indulgent.

The only other teams to crack the Top 11 are Notre Dame and Michigan.

Louisville's schedule is ranked the 84th toughest in the nation. Indiana's is ranked 49th.
