UKathletics.com announces, “Posters for the 2017-18 Kentucky men’s and women’s basketball teams were unveiled on Tuesday. They will be distributed at Big Blue Madness presented by Papa John’s on Friday and beginning on Saturday morning at Kroger locations throughout the state.”
Tell us something we already didn’t know. If you haven’t seen “The List” check it out here, it has some jaw dropping historical numbers.
Some numbers from AP All-Time Top 100 are as follows:
75.37% of all polls
Jan. 18, 1949 (first-ever poll)
1950s, appeared in 89.63% of polls, but 1990s were close with 89.33%.
1960s, appeared in 59.59% of polls.
The Wildcats have missed appearing at least once in the poll for only three seasons during the 68-year history of the AP poll, the fewest poll-less seasons of any program. Those seasons were 1952-1953, 1988-1989, and 1989-1990.”
It’s interesting to note that his decade could end up being the best all time once completed.
Kentucky fans have a passion like no other. We paint our faces blue, we name our kids after players, we spend hours putting together videos like this one.
This about it, what would we do in the winter without Kentucky basketball?
Ken the Andel is the maker of this one and here is what he had to say about it.
“My first hype video for UK basketball. Every Kentucky fan knows that when the weather starts to cool and the snow begins to fall, it’s basketball season. So, I figured why not combine Game of Thrones and the words of House Stark with UK basketball to get excited for the upcoming season. Hope everyone enjoys, and Go Cats! :)”
