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.
