I have noticed these markers around campus for the last few months but was not aware UK was promoting checking in. I had actually thought that they were part of an art installation.
If you have seen the Facebook Places icons throughout campus, decals on the entraces of classroom doors and posters on the walls of your favorite hang outs, then you already know about Facebook Places. (UK)
As of yesterday the entire exterior of the bridge had been removed. All that remains is the steel skeleton. View an earlier photo here.
Check out the bottom right hand corner of the bridge.
In the Herald Leader Jerry Tipton Compares Rupp Arena to the facilities at similarly perceived basketball programs.
Let’s compare Rupp Arena to home courts for North Carolina, Duke, Indiana, Kansas and UCLA. Of the six programs most strongly identified with college basketball success, only North Carolina’s Smith Center was built after Rupp Arena. UNC opened the Smith Center in 1986. Rupp opened 10 years earlier.
Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium opened in 1940, Indiana’s Assembly Hall in 1971, Kansas’s Allen Fieldhouse in 1955 and UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in 1965.
All have undergone renovations in recent years that included new scoreboards, video boards, upgraded locker rooms and modernized concourses. None have luxury boxes, so Kentucky has not fallen behind in that revenue-generating idea.
Seating capacity means a lot to UK fans who want the “big” emphasized in Big Blue. Again, Rupp Arena compares favorably. Only North Carolina’s Smith Center (21,750) comes close to Rupp Arena’s listed capacity of 23,000. (Link)
Someone added scarves for the jockeys and leg warmers to the horses at Thoroughbred Park.
A colorful mystery in a popular central Kentucky park.
Someone placed scarves and leg warmers around the horse statues at Thoroughbred Park in downtown Lexington
People we talked to seemed to like the change.
No word on how long the scarves and leg warmers will stay on the statues.
City officials say none of them were damaged.
