Kentucky Wildcat Sports

The University of Kentucky athletics have been around since the early 1900’s and have a proven record for producing championship caliber teams. The men’s basketball program has won the NCAA Tournament in 1948, 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996 and 1998 and has played in 13 Final Four games. The UK Football program has played in five bowl games since 1999. UK sports fans have always been considered some of the most loyal and most dedicated fans in all of college sports and are notorious for supporting their teams through thick and thin. The fan base of UK is so large that the name True Blue Nation is often used to describe them. Fans of UK have followed the Kentucky Wildcats sports teams ever since the days of Adolph Rupp (basketball coach) and Bear Bryan (football coach). Through Rupp’s seasons as the coach the UK basketball teams had much success and it seems there has been relative success ever since. over 90 players from the basketball team have went on to play in the NBA with success. Several of those players have returned to there roots in Kentucky where they have visited schools, which helps recruiting in the state.

The Kentucky Wildcats athletic teams have always been a dominant when it comes to statewide fan support compared to other schools like, the University of Louisville, Eastern University, Western University and Morehead University. University of Kentucky Wildcats sports fanaticism is something often passed down from generation to generation. The term I bleed blue is used to describe a real UK fan and a member of True Blue Nation. when looking forward to the upcoming seasons Rich Brooks has me really excited about football this next year. The last three years, Kentucky football has won three bowls and the team just seems to be getting better and better every year.

With the addition of the new basketball coach John Calipari I am really looking forward to the upcoming UK basketball season. this guy is proven winner and his intense coaching style and awesome character will make me love the basketball program even more. I believe he will have a lot of success at UK developing them into a contender of the National Champion again, something that has been missing the last few seasons.

In closing UK is a great team to follow for many reasons, especially if you love the passion of college sports. University of Kentucky Wildcats sports teams will always be my teams
