    I would hope so, it's 35 years newer and will have cost $1 billion (4 times what it cost to build) by the time they pay if off many decades from now because of their inept financing "strategy." RollLaugh

    ....or at BW-3's in Newport. Maybe 3 U6ers in the entire place. Anyone wearing the U6 gear in Northern KY is the equivalent of a unicorn with leprosy.

    Name given to them by the FBI in the shoe co/recruiting scandal.
    "University 6".....I prefer just 'U6'.

    Since the renovation, Rupp's seating capacity is now smaller than Louisville, UNC, and Tennessee.

    Just a uk obsession nick name. Most fans of other teams don’t leach on to things like that, because they’re not entrenched in all things Louisville. Those poor hillbillies.

    Not really. UL has earned even better nicknames - like "Little Brother" for one. We were perfectly happy with just that one.

    But you guys outdid yourselves - went out and earned yourselves a new one.
