The college basketball writing staff over at ESPN named the song that defines each of the 25 teams in its top 25 for next season, and Kentucky’s is from Beyonce’s visual album, Lemonade, released earlier this year.
C.L. Brown assigned Beyonce’s “Sorry” to the 2016-17 Kentucky Wildcats.
He explains why:
3. Kentucky Wildcats: “Sorry,” BeyoncÃ© (2016)
Two reasons to pick this song. First, the Kentucky fan base, also known as Big Blue Nation, swarms after naysayers just like Beyonce’s legion of fans known as the Beyhive. Just try to say something bad about BBN. We dare you. Second, John Calipari has an unapologetic style, and he’s not changing anytime soon. If any team personifies the line, “middle fingers up, put them hands high,” it would be the Wildcats. — C.L. Brown
