UK fan Megan Dills said UK-Indiana series over, but proud to be a Wildcat fan and proud of championship team

By LARRY VAUGHT

Now that the Kentucky-Indiana basketball series is over — at least for two years — I wondered what UK fan Megan Dills thought of the rivarly going away.

You remember Dills. She is the Playboy model — and die-hard UK fan — who was in Bloomington when the Hoosiers beat No. 1 Kentucky on a last-second shot and fans stormed the court. She was knocked down, injured her ankle and made it clear that she thought it was a “scary” situation for fans.

Here’s what she had to say about the series ending.

Question: What did you think of the Kentucky-Indiana series not being renewed?
Dills: “I was saddened that the rivalry would be ending. I wish that they could have agreed on venues to keep it going but I feel like Coach Cal was more than fair in his offering to play at neutral sites. ”

Question: If the series had continued, would you have gone back to Bloomington in two years if it had been home-and home? Would you have gone to UK-IU games at neutral sites?

Dills: “If it would have continued I would have most definitely made it to the home game but I didn’t care for the environment at Assembly Hall and I’m sure it wouldn’t have changed by our next game. Their loss in the Elite Eight to UK would have only intensified their unruly behavior.”

Question: Do you still have fans/people ask you about what happened at Bloomington?
Dills: “I am not asked as often as I used to be and I’m thankful for that. There’s much more to my life than one basketball game.”
Question: Finally, how much did you enjoy the national championship?
Dills: “Winning the national championship was nothing less than pure ecstasy for  me. I don’t believe I have ever been as proud to be a part of the world’s best fan base than I was that day. I feel very blessed to have been born and raised a Kentucky fan. This is a tradition that was passed onto me and I have continued it with my nieces and nephews. The 2012 national championship team is a group of amazing, genuine young men with a bond that is not seen often. I am proud to be a Kentucky Wildcat.”

    Megan, IF this series eventually resumes, on a home court basis, just remember to wear a flak vest for your Bloomington visit.

    I for one am glad the series has been put on hold. It’s actually more fun to listen to the Lose-ier fans whine and cry, than actually beating their sorry excuse for a team.

      Brent, I don’t think you are totally wrong thinking that

    Sorry the lady got hurt but glad IU fans helped her and that the event provided her with her 15 minutes of fame.

    Now if Calipari and your AD would just man up and agree to play the Hoosiers.

    I understand why though, as the odds of IU winning the next couple are high and the comparison of the two programs in the media is a PR nightmare for UK not to mention the post-game violence in Lexington.

      Wow Jeremy. Not sure I can go along with any of that
