What a win! Couldn't envision a better game to have all these Jr day recruits in the house for. Every recruit had to be imagining playing in front of a racus 70,000 BBN fans in Commonwealth Stadium. Looking forward to hearing the reaction of all these recruits after tonight.
absolutely! You know that they had to be impressed with the crowd tonight and throughout the entire day thanks to Gameday being on campus. Huge, Huge weekend for the football team.
Cal just said on postgame that this was the best crowd since he has been here.
I would have to agree with Cal. We finally had a game where people didn't just stand up during timeouts. Everyone was off their asses for once! Great job by fans tonight, finally!
I agree wholeheartedly, just couldn't understand why some UK posters didn't think we could win!!
Better than the UNC game last year? Not sure about that one.
I have been a UK fan since my childhood, and now am in my 50s, so have been to many games since Rupp opened and several on the road, along with a trip to San Antonio in 98. My point in this is that I have often referred to Rupp Arena as The Mausoleum with it's dead crowds, I have always felt that if you wanted to taste the flavor of the Real BBN then go on the road, especially to the SEC Tournament, those are the UK Fans that make this program great and beyond. The money folks that inhabit the lower arena seats are necessary also, but we only need their checkbooks and they should only worry about the tax breaks, not seating arangments. Last nights crowd was amazing, let's keep it up.
I readily admit that I am one of those who didn't think we could win. We have not played with that kind of effort and heart all season. I'm glad I was wrong! But, now Cal has to keep on them that they have to play this way from here on out. They can not have a letdown Wednesday against State. If this win goes to these guys heads we will find ourselves with another loss Wednesday and in turn UK would be eliminated from the NCAA tourney, short of a run in the SEC. Even with the improved play, I just don't see us being able to beat Florida. I've chalked that one up as being extremely surprised if we win. And Arkansas hasn't lost at home. I almost think we have a better shot at beating Florida here than Arkansas there. And Georgia will not be easy either. We have to beat MSU and UGA. I don't know if we can afford to lose to Ark and Florida and get in without a good showing in the SEC tourney. There is little room for error. Let's hope the kids keep listening to Cal. Also, lets hope the fans in Rupp realize the importance of the game Wednesday and help the guys out again as they did last night.
