Lost in the nearly 12 minutes of talking to Neal Brown — none of which was about the quarterbacks, per his request — was a little shot at the rival down the road.
When asked about the import of the Blue-White Spring Game to recruiting, Brown said “it’s huge,” adding that UK’s recruiting really soared after the 51,000 showed for last season’s game at Commonwealth Stadium.
It’s one of the first things he mentions to recruits still, a year later.
“There’s no NBA team; there’s no major league baseball team … there’s no NFL team,” Brown said.
“So UK athletics is it. The other team doesn’t want to hear that, but it’s it. I mean, we’re the show in town, in the state.”
