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.
