Kentucky Basketball to hold a virtual BBM this year
On Thursday afternoon the school announced that the Men's basketball program won't be allowing fans to attend the annual Big Blue Madness event, as this year it will be an all virtual one.
They've decided to move the event from Rupp Arena to Memorial Coliseum, where they will partner up with the SEC Network to broadcast it live. It will be the first BBM inside of Memorial Coliseum since 2004, and will feature introductions of both the men's and women's basketball teams, practice drills, scrimmages, player spotlights, a performance by the 24-time national championship cheerleading team and more.
Big Blue Madness will be a 90-minute telecast with Tom Hart, Jimmy Dykes and Carolyn Peck on the call for SEC Network.
I think this makes the most sense due to Covid concerns, and to be honest, you all should be thankful to not have to campout for multiple days just to get inside the doors.
