One of the highlights of last year’s Big Blue Madness was the blue carpet VIP entrance. This year, Kentucky’s taking it to another level by moving the blue carpet to High Street, where fans will have the opportunity to watch the teams, coaches, and VIPs enter Rupp Arena from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Bleachers will be set up on either side of the blue carpet, which will be located just in front of the High Street entrance. The teams, including John Calipari, Matthew Mitchell, and “featured guests,” will be dropped off right in front so they can have a chance to walk the carpet, greet fans, and do interviews with media members.
Last year’s blue carpet was a really neat addition to Madness and it should be even better now that fans are involved. Which will be louder: the cheers for Zion Williamson or the cheers for Drake?
