Kentucky Sports Radio

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

You people are crazy…

The Big Blue Madness campout is already underway, although it’s not official until tomorrow morning when UK allows the crowd to storm Memorial Coliseum’s front lawn at 7:00 a.m. About 30 campers were across the street in lawn chairs when I stopped by this afternoon, including some who have been there (or around there) since Saturday.

Wildcat Rick is front and center, of course. He’s looking to claim the No. 0001 ticket for the 10th time in 11 years.

Here are some photos from the early turnout…

We’ll have more throughout the week…

    Wow.. That’s the roughest looking group of slobs I’ve seen in a while. Looks like our tax dollars are paying for a few tickets to BBM.

    Wow, all you people judging other people on how they look, need to move to California
    and become UCLA fans. This is Kentucky. Leave us alone. It’s how we are.
    We’re fat. Not all of us have all our teeth. Not all of us have more than an 8th
    grade education. But most of us love God and do a lot for our fellow man.
    We take care of our own, and we love our Wildcats. If you don’t like
    how we look, Yankee, you can go back to Louisville or go all the way home.
    Love, Big Blue Nation.

    1, 2, 3… would hate to have the seats next to them at Rupp. Space is at a premium with normal sized people beside you.

    They look like a bunch of occupy dingle berry st protesters. They need to have their welfare checks and food stamps rejected, immediately. Go get jobs and be productive!

    #19. In case you didnt notice, many are taking off, AKA vacation days, the others are kids or fairly old, therefore retired or missing school

    Why do people camp out for this stuff really? It’s a practice thats 90% anything but Mens Basketball. I would never waste my time sitting in this to watch womens bball with an intro to the men’s team. People who do this are stupid

    #7, what if they’re gay? Kentuckians seem to have a problem with those people having rights…

    Bearded guy HAS to be working on his PhD from UK at this point. Dude’s been at UK for at least 7 years.

    A lot of adipose tissue in the above pictures. I know Cal and the guys always hand out pizza for the campout, so they better be ordering a hell of a lot of it.

    This is exactly what I think of when I picture UK fans… glad to see it’s accurate.
