Perfect that it is being retired for the kentucky game. Big blue nation gets to watch a kentucky native get his jersey put up in the rafters and watch another Rick Barnes victory over Cal. Part of me though wishes they would have retired it when we played auburn at home last season or possibly another season when we play them at home. Would be nice to have Bruce in attendance for the ceremony
Well, well deserved. I remember earlier in the year there was a debate on here by some on whether or not Chris deserved to have #5 retired because he "didn't meet the requirements." I'm glad that argument is now moot. IMO, there are very few players to ever wear the orange and white that had a better college career than Lofton. SO happy this is happening.
