'Greatest Wildcat of them all' dies - Sports

'Greatest Wildcat of them all' dies - Sports

This is a link to an article about Bill Keightley... UK's Mr. Wildcat.  He's a legend of Kentucky basketball sharing the UK bench as the equipment manager for the men's basketball team for over 30 years, serving under every coach since Adolph Rupp.  To say he had a great impact on Kentucky basketball and that he will be missed is an understatement.

I couldn't believe it when I read about it on Monday night. I never met him but it felt like I lost a family member. After reading article after article with quotes from the former players and coaches, I shed many a tear the last couple of days. It's not going to be the same watching them play next year and not see Mr. Wildcat on the bench.

You know you're from Kentucky when your mom calls to say, "Sarah, I have some bad news. Mr. Wildcat has died..."

We will all miss him. May Bill rest in peace.
