Rupp Arena needs to be rowdy, just ask Doron

Doron Lamb is feeling the Big Blue Nation spirit this morning. He tweeted out the photo of Rupp Arena you see above with the message, “It better be like this 2day.”

Lamb, who went 3-0 against Louisville during his UK career, is exactly right. Rupp Arena could, and should, be the difference maker in today’s game. You can debate match-ups until you’re blue in the face, but Kentucky’s biggest advantage will be the 24,000 screaming fans in the stands. This needs to be an environment we’re talking about years from now.

Louisville’s Russ Smith claims it is his arena; and to be fair, he’s put on a hell of a show in his three games there. “Russ Arena,” Louisville fans call it, and they have good reason — Russ is averaging almost 27 per game in Rupp.

But not today. Not today, Russdiculous.

Doron says, “It better be like this 2day,” and it will. Big Blue Nation is today’s MVP in a Kentucky victory.

Blow the roof off, BBN.

    You blaming the refs already tard? A little premature, just like a coach we all know.

    Marty B, the article said Lamb was 3-0 which would include 2 regular seasons and the Final Four. He didn’t have to be there for 3 years to get 3 wins.

    People talk about how loud it needs to be but the sad fact is that 95% of it comes from the upper arena. If you removed the upper deck you’d be able to hear a pin drop during this game. The blue hairs suck ass when it comes to making noise.

    Speaking of Dakari, I overrated him last year. I’ve revised him down to a 2 star. Boy does he suck.

    Wow these Louisville people are on here in droves today. Wonder if they’ll be on here blaming refs or hillbillies or Karen Sypher later if they lose today.

    Okay . . . Russdiculous is averaging 27 ppg in RUPP Arena. Big Deal. His record is also 1 – 2. Let him have 27 or 37 even. But after the game his record will be 1 – 3.
