when did University of Kentucky drop wrestling (early / mid 80s?)? I'm assuming that was last time there has been D1 wrestling in Kentucky. 

SoCon for 'permanent' membership rather than being an independent would make sense.

Kentucky dropped in 1982. They wouldn’t be a permanent member in the SoCon, they’d be an affiliate.

There is no reason to join a conference.  They don't need a qualifying tournament until 2024.  This will allow them to schedule as they see fit.

They should schedule duals with the weakest of the "brand name" D1 teams so that the wrestling teams looks to be competitive in D1.

I'm shocked that the PAC 12 hasn't invited them to join their conference  (SARCASM ALERT)

With ULAR in the conference, this one seems to be in the correct footprint for the conference.  I say go for it :-)
