Kroger Field Adds “Big Blue Drum” to its Arsenal

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.

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.

      Mr. Ego will try to tell the fans if they should like this or not. And Ryan will echo whatever opinion Matt has

    This is terrible. Im all for making new UK traditions, but not crappier versions of stuff that already exists…

    Drum heads are weather sensitive. There must be 64 lugs on that big ass BAMborine.

    Anything is better than the guy spelling out C A T S over the loudspeaker; that was always horrible.
