University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

22,189 and counting…

(UK Athletics)

22,189 tickets to Kentucky’s Blue/White game have been claimed as of 3:45 p.m. today, according to an update from UK Athletics.  Mark Stoops tweeted to Big Blue Nation that he’d like to see 25,000 by the end of the day.

Get yours at with the promo code “LOYALTY” to help meet the Day 1 goal.

The record attendance for the annual spring game is 20,700, set back in 1987.  That record is in serious jeopardy.

Go Cats.

    Spoiler Alert: IT’S A PRACTICE!!!! For the FOOTBALL TEAM!!! Have you ever watched one of these on TV, even of traditional powerhouse teams? They are about as exciting as watching paint dry. Can’t put “lipstick on a pig” like you can at a Big Blue Madness event with lasers and dancing and fireworks and videos…

    Practice…we talkin’ bout PRACTICE. (For a football team that will be fortunate to go .500 next season.)

    Is there some kind of filter we can add to this site to keep Loserville fans off like Yoda???

    Y’all obviously don’t come around here often, because you’d know I’m the furthest thing from a Loserville fan. I hope UofL loses to UK every time we play them in every single sport, including the friggin’ Debate Team. That being said, our football team is still going to be scrapping to be slightly above mediocre/average this year, and the next, and the next.

    #8, nice personal attack. Stay classy big guy. I ain’t mad atcha.

    I hope it is not like gameday, where a lot of tickets were sold because they were free and then the seats were empty at the event! I know it will be a great crowd, but if you by extra tickets that you will not use, then give them to someone who will use them.

    My Son and I have gone to the last three and had a great time! The attendance was embarrassing! I am glad to see the University is finally trying to make football special.

    I think the ticket sales are a little misleading. Since it only costs like 12 bucks to reserve 8, it is very easy for people to just reserve the max, whether they plan to use them or not…..

    I love UK Football, and I can’t wait for the game. I really hope 25 or 30K people come to it. I guess we will see. 🙂

    shut up son. you are making yourself look like an ass. Be a fan. Get behind our “average team” and see if we can help them. your comments are worthless. keep them to yourself please. Fans only around here. you embarrass all of the BBN

    OK all great and knowledgeable Yoda- Lets just not even play the next 3 season since we aren’t going over .500 and making a bowl. We’ll just cancel those seasons then.

    You have NO IDEA what this team is going to do next year or any year after. NO ONE does right now. I think they will be over .500 next year and improve every yr after- of course that’s just IMO. So in the immortal words of Nate: “Shut your damn filthy mouth!!”

    Here are some SEC comparisons of last years spring practice games. It will be really interesting to see what we end up with especially considering what happened last year… the bottom line- a football school with a really good basketball program.

    Alabama 78,526
    Georgia 44,117
    Auburn 43,427
    Florida 38,000
    South Carolina 34,513
    LSU 33,000
    Missouri 18,614
    Vanderbilt 8,500

    I love that people actually think we had the talent of a 2-10 team last year…

    We lost our starting qb 3 games in and had awful coaching. Add maxwell smith, several juco starters , a talented freshman class, and much much much improved coaching and youve got a decent squad.

    5-7 and 6-6 is very possible which is great after 2-10

    # Yoda

    Your probably the same guy that said UK could never recruit because of location, state talent, no tradition ect. You just sound like a fair weather fan and why you think UK will be still average with top 25 recruiting classes, proven OC and Proven DC is pretty hysterical. Do I think they will win the SEC ? Probably not but they will be way better in than the past and probably def. be above average and make some good bowls.
