Digger Phelps says Gameday is coming to Rupp

“Listen to me. Listen to ME! LISTEN TO ME”

We now interrupt your SEC Media Days coverage for a very important announcement. In an interview with Jason Anderson on ESPN 680 in Louisville, Digger Phelps said that ESPN Gameday will come to Rupp Arena next season for the Florida/Kentucky game. He said the Gameday crew will also make stops at Assembly Hall and the Yum Center, for Notre Dame at Louisville.

Just to refresh your memory:

This is going to be fun.

    Digger Phelps and Bobby Knight will have previous engagements, I’m sure.

    I cannot wait to boo Digger. It’s sad that I get excited about it, but his old pompous ass deserves it!

    i would suggest instead of booing, to just everyone sit quietly whenever digger talks, because after all that is what digger wants. booing would just be something a west va. fans would do, sitting quietly shows more class. be loud as hell for everyone else and then just complete silence, now that would be funny and over the top.

    The crowd better do a “Listen to me…clap, clap, clap, clap, clap” chant.

    Oh yeah, I cannot wait to see how Digger is greeted under the hallowed rafters of Rupp Arena. Especially with UK having just won the national title. I just wish I could be there to see the look on his face when he gets a well-aimed, well-thought out, yet classy, zinger as only the fine folks of Rupp Arena can do. I bet Bilas and Davis are already wearing him out about going to Rupp because they know UK fans will light him up good. haha

    7) If you do it, I will too, like right before he talks start cheering, but when he starts the stadium needs to go silent. Digger would not know what hit him. After he is done and when the next person starts talking we cheer as loud as we can.

    Bet anyone,,,,he does not show up here. He is a complete ego maniac that would not survive the less than friendly reception he would get here. UK athletics,,,,do everyone a favor and tell ESPN they can take their damn game day somewhere else. I don’t care for Bilas either but he does have something to say worth listening to. Digger and Knight,,,they don’t have anything relevant to say and we don’t need either one of them in Lexington.

    Digger is a class A, number 1 jerk. I would not care if Game Day ever comes back to Rupp.

    #5 I thought the same exact thing. They need to make “listen to me!” shirts for that game.

    I’d like to commend BBN at the game for not taking Digger’s bait and heckling his dumba$$.

    You stay classy BBN
    (but give it to him at Rupp)

    10 Davis is no longer on ESPN. He signed with Ole’ Roy as an assistant.

    I thought he did that every where ?

    24. I knew Hubert Davis left. I was talking about Rece Davis.

    I’d just suggest a chant of Digger’s record against UK. When someone held a sign up at a Game Day in the past with it, Digger commented, “I didn’t know it was that bad.” He’s an older man and likely to be forgetful again, just remind him. Or we can go very retro and reecho the chant I heard so often sitting next to my father at Freedom Hall, “SITDOWN DIGGER!”.

    Digger won’t go to Rupp…they will make him unavailable.

    If he thought it was bad the first time he was here, and the fans chanted “4-12” whenever Digger spoke, he ain’t seen nothing yet. I will make extra sure to tune in to watch this. I hope we boo his ass so loud that he can’t be heard.
