No Gameday At Rupp This Year

ESPN released their schedule for College Gameday stops this season and, sadly, Rupp Arena is not included as a destination.  The eight-week tour makes stops in eight different states, none of them better than the fine Commonwealth of Kentucky.  However, much like last season in Gainesville, the Cats will be the visiting team for ESPN’s SEC stop, this time in Nashville February 11.  Here is the full list of games they plan to attend:

Jan. 14: North Carolina at Florida State
Jan. 21: Louisville at Pittsburgh
Jan. 28: Washington at Arizona
Feb. 4: Kansas at Missouri
Feb. 11: Kentucky at Vanderbilt
Feb. 18: Ohio State at Michigan
Feb. 25: Syracuse at Connecticut
Mar. 3: North Carolina at Duke or Texas at Kansas

They’re obviously biased.

    We only shattered the gameday record when it was at Rupp last. No sense in doing that again- right? IDIOTS

    This is even better than having it at Rupp. Let’s all show up in Nashville for the morning show and turn Memorial Gym into a sea of blue. Whether you have tickets for the game that night or not, let’s sell out Gameday again….in Nashville.

    Why are they going not to be here for the epic throw down between UK and UNC. It will be Legendary. Bad Move on ESPNs part

    UK/UNC is too early in the season. The Gameday show doesnt start until mid January. The UK/UNC game I think is the same week as Conference Championship Week in football, so I’m sure they will have the football gameday show running that day.

    Tubby to Digger:

    In the picture Tubby just told the Game Day guys that he won the 1998 championship with an empty cupboard.

    honestly who gives a f*ck about F$U or Michigan? UK is about 3 things 1) WINNING 2) getting PLAYERS 3) putting A$$ES IN SEATS.

    hmm, lemme try to predict these…
    unc will kill fsu
    lville and pitt mediocre
    wash and zona mediocre
    they will make a big deal out of ku and mizz bc mizz will win that game bc ku is rebuilding
    uk @ vandy will b a great game
    osu will kill michigan
    cuse uconn will b decent, but they only go to this game on a regular basis now bc of tht 17 zillion ot game they had a few yrs back.
    if anybody thinks they go to texas ku over unc duke your out of your mind. no way espn misses “the biggest rivalry in college bball”

    This is why the Louisville game needs to be moved to late February! Why that game is played on New Years Eve is just stupid.

    #2 nailed it. bbn needs to show up in nashville and drown out the ‘dores. that would be epic. those of you living in southwestern kentucky need to get that done.
