This is a special edition of the Wildcat Country Podcast. UK fans only have a few days before Big Blue Madness. Madness is becoming a statewide holiday, so we thought it would be a good time to look back at some Madness memories. We are joined by former Kentucky basketball players Ramel Bradley, Jon Hood and Cameron Mills. The guys recall memories on the editions of Big Blue Madness they participated in.
We start off with Bradley. Bradley was at the last Madness in Memorial Coliseum, as he recounts a dunk that he and Rajon Rondo teamed up on. He was also at the first Madness held in Rupp Arena. He discusses what that was like and if he liked it more than Madness at Memorial. Bradley talks about the madness around Billy Gillespie’s introduction at Big Blue Madness. Finally Bradley remembers some special moments he had with Mr. Wildcat Bill Keightly right before Madness started.
Next we talk to Hood, who was a member of the team during John Calipari’s first Madness. He tells some tales from behind the scenes. He discusses the other Big Blue Madnesses he was a part of during his time at Kentucky. There may have not been anyone who played with more pros than Hood. Plus he tells us what is like walking out during Madness being from Kentucky.
Cameron Mills played for both Rick Pitino and Tubby Smith,and we ask the differences in those Madnesses? Mills was at madness after a national championship, he describes what the fan base reaction. Mills discusses Tubby Smith’s first madness as well.
