UK holding mascot tryouts on Thursday

If you grew up wanting to be a Wildcat, now’s your chance.

UK is hosting mascot tryouts this Thursday, August 23, in the gymnastics room at the Seaton Center on campus. Students interested in trying out will need to show up in athletic clothes with an unofficial transcript in hand for the 5 p.m. tryout.

It may not be that childhood dream of sinking a three-pointer at the buzzer to beat Louisville in Rupp Arena, but let’s be honest: you were never good at basketball and this is your only shot at running out onto the Rupp Arena floor in front of 22,000 fans. So give it a try if you think you’re qualified.

Washed up adults who aren’t students at UK, this isn’t for you. Sorry.

Go Cats.

    Requirement #1 should be the ability to do 20+ push ups with proper form.

      I sincerely hope the number is closer to 40 than 20. If we’re only putting up 20 points per game, we’re going 3-9 at best

      Baby steps. The offense has long since surpassed the mascot’s ability to do the pushups, so I’m not even worried about that.

    Whatever happened to the real one-handed push-ups from back in the day?

      We had a real Cat back then.

    Actually if you put up 21 points, as in 3 touchdowns and the extra points, then he is really doing 42 push-ups. 7, then 14, then another 21
