Congratulations, Big Blue Nation. According to our readers, you are the most annoying fan base in college sports. Kentucky basketball supporters were voted slightly more annoying than Alabama football fans, 52%-48%, in our championship game this week. Kentucky was our overall No. 1 seed in the tournament, so technically, chalk won out.
Here’s the entire bracket, which is now complete...
The fanatical fanbase of Kentucky athletics, particularly basketball, is colloquially known as the Big Blue Nation, or BBN. Renowned rapper Drake is a UK fan, and he isn’t shy about showing his allegiances.
In Drake’s verse on Nicki Minaj’s song “Only”, he drops the line “I like my girls BBW.” Naturally, someone had some fun with that lyric, creating a banner showing...
This Kentucky fan inked an undefeated national championship tattoo because Big Blue Nation does whatever it wants these days.
When you’re undefeated and dominating the competition like No. 1 Kentucky is, you’re bound to inspire passionate fans to drum up unique ways to express their love and appreciation. What better way for two fans to show their devotion to UK basketball than with a little Bluegrass tribute?

It our weekend recap, Kentucky continues its road to a title, overrated teams keep winning and one conference is contemplating suicide.
A Walmart in small town Kentucky made a super BAMF Wildcats soda display, which should be mandatory for any store in the Bluegrass State.
A Kentucky fan made his own "Ballad of Big Blue Nation," and the song is really quite catchy.
Last night, 24,000 fans once again showed up to Rupp Arena to watch what was basically glorified starting lineup introductions and some practice drills. As a kid I was enamored by this whole thing, but as I get older and older, it has lost it’s luster a little bit. Back when it was Midnight Madness, it was cool. I guess it is still kind of cool, but it’s not my cup of tea anymore...
BEREA, Ohio - What's probably the final leg of Carlton Bragg's recruiting tour hits Lexington tonight for Kentucky's annual Big Blue Madness event.
Bragg, a 6'9, five-star forward from Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School, visited Kansas last week.

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team is taking on the Puerto Rican national team reserves as part of the Big Blue Bahamas Tour. So far, it’s been a pretty back and forth game, but one of the most notable moments came late in the first half, when Wildcats point guard Andrew Harrison absolutely destroyed a Puerto Rican defender with one of the nastiest crossovers you’ll...
Eight Is Great, But It’s Time For Nine! I personally love this part of the year, because it signals to me that college basketball is right around the corner when the BBM Campout happens. It is a great time to hangout with other UK fans, see the players coming and going, then of course at […]
