One of our favorite moments from Kentucky football over the last five or so years is currently being mocked on Twitter by anyone and everyone, including some of the NFL’s biggest stars.
The Checkdown, a popular football Twitter account, shared a video of the Cats’ special teams unit dancing before a third-quarter kickoff in the South Carolina win in 2014, to ask, “If you’re the return team, are you intimidated by this?”

The dance sparked the comeback that gave UK its second win over South Carolina in 15 years, which has since become a four-game win streak; it also made “Grove St. Party” the unofficial theme song for the program. JD Harmon, one of the participants, said afterward, “That was the loudest I’ve ever heard that stadium. It felt literally like the whole stadium was rocking.”
But two-time Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins, a former Alabama star, said he isn’t intimidated “because it’s Kentucky.”

Kansas City Chiefs Pro-Bowler Tyreek Hill simply tweeted, “Nope.”

Several other replies suggest it would be intimidating if it were any other school but Kentucky.
