University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Over 38,000 tickets claimed for the Blue/White game



The number of tickets reserved for Kentucky football’s spring game is up to over 38,000, according to Kyle Tucker. That means the 1987 scrimmage’s record attendance of 20,700 is in serious jeopardy.

To put that number in perspective, UK is on pace to be among the top schools nationally for spring game attendance this season. Only 14 college football programs had over 30,000 fans at their scrimmages last spring.

You can add to the total by reserving yours at

Go Cats.

    Maxwell Smith will lead us to the promised land before he is done (promised land being 8-4 and the outback bowl)

    REALLY hope that many shows up. (I’ll be there)
    Numbers for attendance skewed by ticket distribution guidelines.

    If you don’t show up, You will miss something you haven’t seen in UK football.

    List the 14 schools that had 30k tickets distributed last year and make this post interesting.

    Does anyone know what happened with the tickets that were supposed to go on sale for the Basketball game in Brooklyn on 12/1?

    Just guessing: This post is the result of a UK press release.
    No actual input from the poster?

    Have been looking forward to Spring Game since Stoops hire. However, if it doesn’t get above 30 degress not sure I or many others will be there. Come on Mother Nature, it’s a SPRING Game.

    I got my tickets thanks to loyalty code from KSR. If BBN misses the spring game because they don’t want to go, don’t want too pay for tickets, or whatever other excuses (cough, unnamed KSR caller), it’s on y’all and don’t bitch about it. The first “Night Spring Game” will be awesome…Go Cayts

    Louisville’s spring game is the afternoon of the 13th–Kentucky’s is the evening of the 13th. I’m a sports bigamist–I’m going to BOTH!!!
