    Happy day, big fella! Such a misunderstood individual. Teddy bear off the court, Mac truck on the court.

    Thanks for everything, Boogie. My kid still wears a headband from time to time, in your honor.

    The “baby clip” is the number one reason I think Demarcus it a great guy. If he was the thug people made him out to be, you’d have never seen happen. Happy Birthday, young fella!!

    I always explain to people that the reason DeMarcus was and is so loved at Kentucky is because of the way he matured over the course of the season. There are different types of troubled players — there are the ones that make really, really stupid decisions and neglect their responsibility to the fanbase and the program leaving you thinking ‘I cannot believe that guy. Wow. I’m embarrassed by what he did.’ Then there are the guys like DeMarcus (and there are fewer of them) that might say something that you wish they didn’t say, but it’s in a way that resembles your feelings about your own kid or a younger brother, because you know who they really are and hope they do better.

    I think DeMarcus would’ve been in trouble if he hadn’t stayed with Cal. You can tell there was a serious father/son relationship between those two, and it’s refreshing to observe as a fan.

    I will never forget being at that SEC championship game. That tip was unreal. I still get chills watching that.

    Boogie will forever be my favorite player to wear the blue and white. He was the first player I saw at the campout that embraced the fans. And when I say embrace, I mean among the fans as much as he could, interacting with the fans. He has the best quality a person could have; when you are around him he makes you feel special. Happy Birthday Boogie. Thank you for being a great individual.

    Been watching the cats since the 70’s and that is in my top 5 all-time plays. That team will forever be known as the team that brought us back to where we belong, If you want that NCAA championship, then you got to deal with us. HBD Boogie…
