    Also check out this song honoring our cats. It’s a rap version but the lyrics are great. Sound clips in it too get you pumped up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOgL0TwreDs&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    UK / SEC always takes down his videos …. So lame of our conference and school to not allow fans to make their own tribute videos to their teams. I still remember his Harrellson tribute video. Wish that one was still up.

    I didnt miss one game live or on tv this year. Thank God for DVR! Love the Goose in 78, Delk in 96, Shep in 98, but AD my favorite. This one my favorite, beat IU and UL to boot!

    I had to watch that twice to soak it all in. So many great memories from a special group of young men. Of course, I wish that they would all come back and do it again, but because they won’t, part of me almost wants all 5 of them to announce that they are leaving for the NBA tomorrow. Together. Just like they did everything else all year long…as one!

    I’m 55 and I’ll be watching this one until I’m 85, which by then we will have 9 or 10 more Championships. Good bye UCLA hello CATS! Best video I’ve ever felt on my CATS. My dog even cried.
