Can you feel that? It’s bass ringing from the newest addition to Kroger Field.
Before the 2019 Blue/White Game, UK rolled out an eight-foot drum to the 50-yard line. They debuted the massive musical instrument as a new pregame tradition. Before each game, a former player will bang the drum to the tune of “Go Big Blue.” Up first, College Football Hall of Famer Art Still.
New feature before UK games this season is the “Big Blue Drum.” Wildcat Hall of Famer has the honors tonight. They’ll have a former Wildcat do it before every game to a “Go Big Blue” chant from the crowd. pic.twitter.com/6yJ2eXruGP

Creating new Kentucky football traditions is a great idea, when it’s original. Purdue boasts the “World’s Largest Drum,” while a former Missouri player bangs on “Big Mo” to the tune of their favorite chant, “M-I-Z! Z-O-U!”
Will the Big Blue Nation embrace the Big Blue Drum? Only time will tell.
