About 90 minutes to game time and Rupp is ready. Huge media contingency of over 250 credential media for one regular season basketball game. I have never seen anything like it. Couple of notes before our 3 PM LIVE BLOG with GREGG DOYEL.
— The security scene is tight…confiscating signs left and right. We shall see if people bring markers and do their own thing.
— Basically every major college basketball writer is here. Talked to two who are leaving here and headed to BCS Title Game in California…both tell me they think this will be more fun.
— No one is picking Louisville to have a shot…that is always a bit concerning.
— Good to see former UK Assistant Coach George Felton around today. Most undervalued recruiter UK has ever had.
— Talked to a couple of scalpers…tickets on the street ranging from 250-400 dollars for upper levels.
— This is going to be crazy fun….stay tuned
