eRUPPtion Zone Antics Have Everyone Talking

Kentucky is one of the greatest traditions in college basketball. Rupp Arena is known for its electric atmosphere, but recently sagging student interest has left the eRUPPtion zone less than the intimidating force it once was. UK Athletics ticket incentives and some creative fans are trying to re-energize the student section. These efforts have created a buzz and left BBN waiting to see what is planned for future games.


Rumor has it some of the “fans” were actually undercover Kentucky cheerleaders.

According to a recent tweet, “Wrecking Ball Guy” (@salolivet50) hints we can expect future antics: “…you’re welcome #BBN me and @Snackdaddy_Swiz have more to come. Pics and videos coming soon”

    I think it is terrible the way the entire fan base is basically silent during the games. It is a priviledge to go to a game so give up your seat if you just want to be seen on TV and aren’t going to cheer! The Duke fans seem to always be cheering. I would give anything to be able to go and have a close seat and it just makes me sad

    If you can’t have “chains on wallets” when you enter Rupp Arena, how in the world did Wrecking Ball guy get in??
