College Gameday comes to Rupp on February 23rd

Listen to me! LISTEN TO ME!

ESPN just announced that College Gameday will come to Rupp on February 23rd, 2013. The network didn’t announce who the Cats would be playing on that day, but dear ole Digger Phelps said it would be Florida during an interview back in July. Gameday will also visit Butler, N.C. State, Indiana, Kansas, and Notre Dame or Cincinnati.

I vote we make Digger sit upstairs.

UPDATE: ESPN has announced the Cats will face Missouri in the Gameday game, which will tip at 9 p.m. Lies, Digger, lies!

    Digger will constantly get boo’ed and then at the end will say he predicts UK to win just to win back the fan base, don’t fall for it!!!

    This is going to be awesome, I fully expect everyone to heckle him anytime he opens his mouth. Did someone say “LISTEN TO ME” T-Shirts?

    Boo him until he can’t be booed anymore. You don’t disrespect the BBN and get away with it.

    I think a chant of “Listen to Me” is well in order… It would make Bilas laugh!

    We need to boo him so you can’t understand him on tv, not that anyone cares to. But if he walks in and everyones nice to him he will walk out with his head up saying we’re a bunch of pansys. So lets rain heckling on him for 2 hours

    every time he starts to speak, we should all yell “listen to me! listen to me!” we could have a real boo bash if boob nite would show up. but no way that will happen

    Pretty soon Digger’s face is going to one giant age-spot. That’ll be cool.

    IF ESPN & Digger were smart, Digger would take a sick day. Then again, Digger you did it to yourself, you deserve whatever you get.

    Listen to Me! ESPN sends over Digger’s specific itinerary (on a posterboard with jumbo lettering) months in advance, so that Digger can get mark those dates on the fridge calendar he picked up for free at the credit union. Digger assumed he would be attending all of the gameday dates when he announced them earlier, when, in fact ESPN decided not invite their resident grumpy old man.

    Like I’ve said on numerous occasions. The SEC and Mitch Barnyard are trying so hard to manufacture a rivalry between UK and Missouri. ESPN and KSR no doubt will fuel this synthetic rivalry and play right into the league and the programs hands and justify this idiotic inclusion of Missouri and Texas A&M.

    UK for years has played UF in the last game of the season in early March so unless that has changed the Feb. 23 date for UF didn’t make sense.

    I can see it already. Days leading up to Feb. 23rd there will be numerous posts by the top dogs of KSR telling BBN to stay classy. Don’t do anything to embarrass yourself and/or the school on national TV. Maybe between now and 2-23, BBN can think of smart original ideas to do during College Game Day to show our distaste for Digger. Holding up newspapers and being silent while he talks has been done by fans before but you get what I mean. Or we could just conform, do nothing and act like good boys & girls.

    How about you guys do the state and the nation a favor and drag digger through the streets of lexington during the pre-game intros. America would applaud you.

    I say we all dress in gold and black and then act a fool. That way we get Digger and make Vandy or Mizzou look like they are the buttheads! GENIUS

    Or we could just beat Mizzou by 30 and show them that this will not be a rivalry but merely another SEC whipping boy to ready us for national glory

    Chigger Phelps fired the first shot in this war. I don’t care what KSR or anybody else says, this is our chance to let him see how we feel about his stupid old ass.I agree with you #22, UK, Cal and KSR will tell us to show “class”. This should fall on deaf ears, I plan on letting him know how I feel about his comments.
