Tubby Smith, Rex Chapman, Press Whelan, Leslie Nichols, Jesse Witten and Oliver Barnett will be inducted into the UK Athletics Hall of Fame September 27th-29th, and another BBN VIP is flying in for the occasion. According to the all-knowing Oscar Combs, Josh Hopkins will be on hand to present his friend Rex Chapman with the honor at the Hall of Fame dinner on the 27th. Knowing Josh, that will be one awesomely authentic fanboy speech.
The group will also be honored at halftime of the UK/Florida game on September 28th. It’s not quite Rupp Arena, but hopefully Tubby Smith will still get a nice ovation from the Big Blue Nation.
