Kentucky Football has adopted the motto ‘Bring It’ for the 2019 season, and once you hear the inspiration behind it, you’ll want to plaster your walls with the promotional posters.
According to the folks at UK, the motto originated from the Citrus Bowl, specifically, when Kentucky sniffed out Penn State’s fake punt on fourth down at the start of the game. If you remember, a fiery Mark Stoops was captured yelling, “BRING IT ON” on the sidelines:

It’s a shame they couldn’t use Stoops’ entire comment there, but I get it. No one wants deforestation on their hands.
