LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE! Michael Buffer returning to Rupp Arena for Kansas game

4878793

RUPP ARENA, ARE YOU READY??????

Famed ring announcer Michael Buffer is returning to Rupp Arena for Saturday’s game vs. Kansas, reprising his role from Big Blue Madness in October. Buffer announced the good news on Twitter minutes ago:

Buffer helped introduce the team at Madness with a spin on his famous saying, opening the ceremonies with “LET’S GET READY FOR ROUNDBALL!”.

Between Gameday, the Guinness Book of World Records thing, former Cats coming in, and now this, Kentucky really is pulling out all the stops.

    He was worst part of Big Blue Madness – not seeing this as a positive.

    Crowd will be hyped enough – why not get a Kentucky oriented celeb to participate.

    Maybe I am missing something.

      Not about fans. About players.

    Between Buffer and the Guinness thing this sounds like a “white out” or “black out” or whatever else other schools do that play UK and get mocked by KSR. Just play the game.

      Agreed. This is all silly.

    What former cats will be in attendance?

    That’s OK I guess. I would be a lot happier if Fox, Monk, Briscoe, Gabriel, Humphries and Willis showed up again.

    Lighten up, people. It’s just another way to have some fun with this game.

      Agree; and the guy has become somewhat of a celebrity; how long has he been doing this…20+ years?

    People crack me up on here. You better hope Cal don’t leave… You all are acting like the world has come to an end because we got beat on the road by 2 for our first loss in conference. You better enjoy 3 loss seasons because if Cal ever leaves it will be back to normal. I am glad we win almost every game and do fun stuff like this. Could have Billy G walking through the crowd and going to the NIT.

      I love UK and most of BBN, but damn, there’s a pretty idiotic portion of the fanbase (that’s unfortunately usually the most vocal).

    Geez, for all the people who complain about the atmosphere at Rupp and how we never do anything interesting to get things going, now some will complain about this! Seriously, do some of you get up and look in the mirror every morning and practice b!tching?

    And I agree with the others who said we really need to WIN!

    1 piece of advice for Mr. Buffer. Don’t mess with the Zohan.

      Ashley Judd gives Thousands upon Thousands of dollars to the university, How much does your McDonalds job allow you to send?

    These intros will be awesome! Good way to get the CATS hype before the game. Hopefully sec network shares the clip

    Doesn’t matter; if we’re watching at home we won’t get to see it; never see the starting lineups either…the networks have to get every commercial in; I’m surprised we get to see the opening tip.
