    Coincidentally, the ticket also represents the number of times he’s been mistaken as ‘The Most Interesting Man in the World’.

    All I know is that I want a sweet job like these people that camp all week. I guess I could save a week of my vacation time and camp instead of going to the beach.

    Lots of jealous commenters on here.

    Congrats to you (in the pic) for getting the #1 ticket. You are what UK basketball is all about. This younger generation of fans (that post on here) are a-holes and know nothing about anything except video games and drugs. All you young people need to go to church and maybe you’ll learn something.

    Wildcat Rick does it again. That’s like 9 out of the last 10 years he’s been first in line! And yes he does take time off from work every year to camp out. This man is one of the most passionate UK fans you will ever meet. Great job Rick! Some of us less fortunate UK fans can only envy you!

    What is sad , is he has followers who make sure he is always first . I have seen this happen year after year . Not an accomplishment if others give it to you.

    Rick is one of the admins at the website. It’s a forum based website that seem like it’s been around since the birth of forum based websites aka message boards. They have a great community over there at WCN and it’s very well moderated. Alot of posters over here wouldn’t last too long over there with their personal attacks and slander. They also throw awesome before and after tailgates at the football games and if I recall correctly Rick is one of the head people that spear heads that operation. My hats off to you once again Mr Rick!

    Well I got here at 9pm on Tuesday night and because of all the screwed up ways they hand out control cards ended up with 622-626 on the green side……….

    Ten bucks says this guy lives in a trailer and drives a beat up truck. The good news is tomorrow is the first of the month. He’ll be able to make that trailer payment.

    I met Wildcat Rick years ago – one of the biggest UK fans ever, and one of the most giving and friendliest.

    #16.. People cut line. 1 tent will have one person in it till right before the cards are handed out… then it has 20.

    #13. True… very very True. Yes he has people secure his spot. Its cheat to win!! The year he did not get #1. My friend did. They wanted to fight him and kept talking smack under their breath then were all go UK to his face! Suck it Loser.

    You think he stink cause he’s camped out for days… but you then have to sit near him at the madness… he still smells that way.

    #17 people like you are the reason the world is so bass ackwards. If all of your shortcomings were presented so clearly obvious as outward appearance for all to see – you’d probably be easy fodder as well (scratch that “easier” fodder). I find it so very telling when someone immediately calls out another for being “fat”, “short”, “gangly”, “ugly”, “goofy” – whatever. DUH! Wow captain obvious – its amazing that someone can be so damned insecure that they really feel better by attacking one – ONE aspect of another person’s makeup simply because it is so easy to see. If you had to tattoo your IQ, gross income, job status, level of education, number of felonies and / or misdemeanors, number of sins against society and / or God, etc. on your forehead – WOW – we could probably make fun of you as well.

    This thread is why I hate UL fans.

    Also – the ability of ul fans to come here and post anonymously without consequences is not good.

    For those of you criticizing WildcatRick, you are either a) jealous b) idiots c) a little of both. Why so much hating? Especially if you don’t even know him. I have tailgated with Rick for 10 years and you will never see a more loyal True Blue UK fan.

    UL fans could never pull this off due to the danger of being cornholed in their tents by Pitino.

    There is no better UK fan than Rick Brizendine or his twin sons. WildcatRick is the man above all wildcat men fans!

    I consider myself fortunate to call Rick my friend. Have known him for several years now and wouldn’t trade our friendship for anything. He is one of the most passionate UK fans I have ever met and does a lot of great things for the program. From helping run a website ( WCN ). And tailgating for every home football game. The list goes on and on. So all you haters out there. Stick it. Way to go Rick. Wish I coulda been there.

    I would like to add he has been #1 in line 9 out of the last 10 years which was posted earlier by someone else. And folks that was during the Billy Gillespie disaster as well. So only a true diehard UK fan would sit for the week in the cold and rain waiting on a ticket for what is not even a game. I could go on and on about this but you people with all the negative comments should be ashamed.

    So depressing to read all the posts of people hating on someone. If this is what this guy loves to do, let him do it. You people that are pissed off about someone getting the number one ticket are just as bad as the haters of our team when we are number one in basketball.
    Spend your damn time doing something productive rather than hating on one of your own people. As for the doucher that makes fun of his weight, just think if on of your shortcomings was posted for all to see. Grow up!
    Congrats to you Rick…

    Hope he at least got lower level… 3 days of camping got me upper arena :(…. Might wipe my ass with them all the good it did me to stand in line to get them. Even at free it aint f’n worth it. Never thought something would shake my confidence as a fan. This did it.

    Rick is a good guy.

    F*ck off you cunts!

    And he’s a loyal friend with enough perspective on life. As much as anyone.

    On the other hand, WCN SUCKS ASS. Except the tailgates. Lots of folks on WCN could use some perspective. Especially the Joke apologists and football morons.

    Rick is a great guy and he’s extremely dedicated and caring! The guy deserves #1 every time. I should know, I’m part of his group. 3 years ago when it was pouring down rain and they opened up memorial for everyone to go sleep, he was passed out under the ticket awning in the rain in a chair. He opened his group up to me and my boyfriend and has always been so nice and giving. Everyone knows in order to succeed in the “campout” world for BBM, it’s pack mentality. He’s smart enough to have figured that out and found something that works. Stop hating and spend your energy making a plan that works for you instead of being jealous about someone else’s!!!

    Rick is an amazing human being and does not live in a Trailer nor smell bad nor drive a beat up truck, and even if he did who The heck cares! That’s not even what being a fan should be about! You obviously have no lives yourselves. he does have a job unlike most of you who have nothing better to do than shit talk a great man online for being dedicated. So those who live in glass houses shouldn’t cast stones.

    For all u haters Rick does too have a job and a life!! He’s a great guy who would do anything in the world for anyone and sadly all of you who slander against him and try to tear him down didn’t even take two seconds to get to know him. You just read in to him the moment you layed eyes on him and let me tell you something you definitely read him wrong. I love Rick he’s like another family member to me and for you that say hes not who we think he is well let me tell you something else I think we people (who actually gave him a chance) know him better than you and he is who we think he is. He’s a great man with a big heart who loves UK. Shame goes upon all you who called him fat and smelly because it shows your character to judge him from the outside and not the inside.
