Kentucky coaching legend Adolph Rupp once said, "We feel that every boy who puts on a Kentucky uniform just plays a little better than he would in one of another color." Nothing could better describe the powerful Bluegrass mystique in the world of college basketball.The Big Blue's rafters still ring with the daunting achievements of the Fab Five—the back-to-back championship teams of 1948 and '49 led by All-Americans Alex Groza and Ralph Beard. Other greats include Frank Ramsey, Cliff Hagen, Cotton Nash, Dan Issel, Louie Dampier, Kevin Grevey, Jack Givens, Kyle Macy, Rex Chapman, Jamal Mashburn, Antoine Walker, Tayshaun Prince, and Church Hayes—and many more. 'Wildcat Madness' is the story of University of Kentucky basketball as told by Kentucky players, coaches, opponents, fans, and the media. It weaves a timeless tapestry of heroes and characters, headlines saluting the great players, teams, traditions, moments, rivalries, venues, fans, and the alll-time Kentucky team, plus rosters from all seven NCAA championship squads.
