Cincinnati safety Mike Edwards grew up not liking UK or Duke basketball

By LARRY VAUGHT

Cincinnati safety Mike Edwards, who has verbally committed to play for Kentucky coach Mark Stoops, said he “really didn’t know much” about Kentucky football growing up. In fact, he was anti-UK basketball.

“I really didn’t like Kentucky growing up, especially the basketball team,” said Edwards, who has verbally committed to play for the Wildcats. “I just started liking Kentucky when Stoops came in. I really liked him.”

Edwards, who played basketball and baseball along with football, laughs now when he thinks about why he was not a UK basketball fan.

“I just didn’t like them or Duke,” he said. “It seemed like they thought they were the best all the time. They just seemed cocky at that time to me.”

    But we ARE the best of all time. Duke just thinks they are.

    Hey Mike, glad you are a “Wildcat.”

    I know there are reason not to like UK, but you are with us now and we support you. You will find that BBN supports you more than any other college program. Glad to have you on board!

    Welcome, Mike. Once you are here, even for a short time, you will understand about the basketball program. UK is the BEST and if you are, you are confident and that is not being cocky. But you are now one of us and in a very short time, you will know what it is to be part of the program and the BBN – the best ever. And when you graduate, you will always be one of us and will never be forgotten. You will find yourself returning periodically, just because you are ‘family’. Good luck and I’m looking forward to watching you play. GO CATS!
