Dakari Johnson finally understands UK/UofL Rivalry after Win



Dakari Johnson blogs about the Louisville game, Camp Cal, and believes team is coming together.

Here’s is an excerpt from In their own words: Johnson believes team is coming together

I want to start off with the Louisville game because it was one of the best atmospheres I’ve ever played in. I lived here for a couple years when I was in middle school, but I didn’t fully understand the rivalry until playing in this past weekend’s game. It was kind of different seeing how everybody was into it. I know our fans don’t like Louisville and Louisville fans really don’t like Kentucky, but I was really surprised with just how loud it was in Rupp. We could hardly hear what plays we were running. So that was very intense and it was great to play in. It gave us a lot of motivation, and the fans really helped us pull out the win.

The locker room postgame was pretty fun. Everybody was hyped. We were playing music and just dancing and stuff. It was a good time. Some of my aunts, uncles and cousins came down for the game so I went out to celebrate with them after the game. Some of the other guys’ families were in town as well. It was great just having our families down just to experience that with us.
