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

Spoiler alert?

Cats Illustrated’s T.J. Walker tweeted this picture out this morning…could today’s celebration also include hanging the banner?

Chills.

UPDATE: General public tickets for today’s celebration are now SOLD OUT. Some student tickets still remain.

    No they should hang it today. I remember them hanging the banner during the 98 celebration and not midnight madness.

    If I remember correctly, they hung the 96 and 98 banners during the celebrations when the team got back, so they’ll probably hang this one today. And to be honest, waiting for October to hang that beautiful piece of fabric might kill me.

    Three years, an elite 8, a final 4, NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. Nation wide respect
    from every news source and general public that marvel at the talent and more so the unselfish team play. Love and trust for eachother, coaching staff and UK
    and the fans. Nothing but superior positives for Coach Cal staff and players.
    But wait, there is one place in the universe that is not fooled by the evil spell of deceit comimg from Satanpari. This beacon and protector of all that is uncorrupted and pure knows that Suks minor Nba league is cheating, buying players, ncaa oficials, cant coach, should have lost to them in a fair world,

    For all of you asshats that are talking about this banner being vacated, know this the NCAA DOES NOT mess with Championship winning coaches too much. Ask bill self who in 2008 used an ineligible player (Darrel Arthur) but won the title so nothing ever happened. Ask Beheim and Calhoun who have both been in trouble, but nothing really happened to them. Ask Coach K about Corey Maggette, the NCAA says that investigation is ongoing even after all parties involved have admitted to cheating. So now Cal has joined the club and really has no worries. So your dreams of having this title taken away will NEVER HAPPEN.

    29, you never fail me my friend. Always a good comeback.
    All you nay sayers, all I can tell you is that years will come and go, players will come and go, but you guys will still be in the basement that your miserable lives has brought you to be the person that you are today. You don’t want other folks to be happy so you try to rain on everyone’s parade. Go ahead, if it makes you feel better about yourself. So read all the comments, comb your Mohawk and spike it well, because you’ll be at the drive up window taking orders from UK fans at white castle. Or Taco Bell or where ever your diploma from your college of choice brought you.

    I can’t wait for Thunder over Louisville, when all the UofSmell fans have to sit and watch as they fly the UK banner during the show, just like in ’98 and ’96, and ’86.

    To all you trolls and hates I say simply “FCK U”. If you were smart, we know you’re not, you’d do some real work and see if you have any proof to back up your “opinions”. Search Marcus Camby and you’ll find an extensive SI article on Camby and what happened. Guess what, Coach Cal wasn’t involved. You’ll also find a letter from the NCAA president that clears Cal of any wrong doing. Go to Derrick Rose and you’ll find several major colleges were after him AFTER he took his ACT test. He was cleared to play by the NCAA, any coach in America would have played him after that. If anyone has any proof that Cal and UK are doing anything wrong, I’m sure there are only about 1,000 reporters out there that would love to help you. So press on you fools we’ll just continue to rein supreme in college basketball.
