Saturday’s turnout was inspiring to the team and recruits

Neal Brown knows turning the Kentucky football program around will be a process, but Saturday’s spring game was an enormous step in the right direction. He said the incredible turnout — the second highest attendance in the country — made a huge impression on the players and all the recruits who were in town on visits.

“They felt it,” he said of the current players and visiting prospects. “They saw the Cat Walk. That Cat Walk was unbelievable.”

Brown admits the Wildcats are thin and there’s a huge difference between the first and second teams, but seeing Big Blue Nation pile into Commonwealth Stadium for a spring scrimmage will only help bring in better talent for the future and develop the guys who are already here.

“I think what happened on Saturday night is that our kids see that the fan base is behind them,” Brown said. “Now we have to give them a product they can be proud of.”

Way to go, #BBN. Keep fueling the football fire.

    Will be interesting to see the ripple effects of that turnout. The enthusiasm of the head coach has been huge for the buy-in of the fans and players.

    Turnout was great, glad to be a part of it. Tough schedule ahead, just hope the fans stay behind the team and not give up when losses pile up. It will take time to get this thing rolling again.

    It is going to be a mess for a few years I think as you don’t turn around a football program as fast as basketball. But, we’ll see some wins next year that will show what is to come.

    Excited and ready to get it all going. I’ve never seen this much excitment about UK football and the staff talks like they care and want to put a great product on the field.

    Kentucky showing they are a players’ first program. Only 1 of 3 states that are supporting Noel’s decision to go pro.
