A public service announcement for those of you headed to Big Blue Madness tomorrow: Kentucky has moved the Blue Carpet inside this year. The men’s and women’s teams and VIP guests will now arrive at the northeast entrance of the first level of the Lexington Center shops. Fans are invited to watch from the first- and second-level balconies starting at 5:30 p.m.
If you can’t make it to Rupp, you can watch UK Sports Network’s “Before the Madness” special, which will be televised live from 5:30-7 p.m. on select UK Sports Network affiliates (click here for a list). Madness will air live on the SEC Network and the WatchESPN app starting at 7 p.m. Tom Hart will be on hand to make the call alongside analysts Sean Farnham and Debbie Antonelli.
Our own Bradley McKee and Dr. Mike will also be on the blue carpet to bring you the sights and sounds of Madness in the most ridiculous manner possible. If you see them, please say hello.
