It may have come at the expense of our man Jared Lorenzen leading the Blue-White chant, but my favorite new tradition at Commonwealth this fall has been former Cat Marcus McClinton coming out to get the crowd hyped for the fourth quarter. You can’t fully appreciate it unless you see it in person, but McClinton screams at the crowd to “GET YOUR FOURS UP,” whirling around the field like the Tasmanian Devil on Mt. Dew. It truly is a sight to behold.
That’s why I was so excited this morning to see this video from Marcus revving the fanbase us for tomorrow’s game vs. Georgia as only he can.
“This is the week. This is the week to complete the turnaround. This week gonna complete the turnaround in UK Football. Hands down. Hands down.”

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, UK just announced Marcus is also singing the national anthem. You ready, America? GET YOUR PATRIOTISM UP.
I think this calls for a little, “We Believe,” don’t you?
And, in case you’d like to download Marcus McClinton saying, “Big Blue Nation, WAKE UP” to be your alarm like I do, here’s a link:
