The University of Kentucky kicks off its season every year with a ceremonial first practice in mid-October. The anticipation for the event is seen all over the Commonwealth with fans camping out over-night at Memorial Coliseum for a chance at the coveted admission ticket. This year not only does UK have a new coach but one of the top-ranked recruiting classes in the country. Head coach John Calipari hopes to bring the program back to its regal status with a new offense and athletic players.
