Daily Devotions for Die-Hard Fans: Kentucky Wildcats combines the great passion of the Wildcat fan with the great passion of the fan of Christ into one set of devotions, one book that is fun while providing a time of reflection about God and your faith.
• Coach Joe B. Hall was dumbfounded by the answer he got when he asked a recruit how many points he had scored.
• Kentucky once played a football game in which the teams punted more times than they ran plays from scrimmage.
• Sean Woods made quite a first impression on Rick Pitino’s new strength and conditioning coach: He threw up.
• Alex Meyer walked away from $2 million to play UK baseball.
• UK defensive end Dennis Johnson played in his first high-school football game when he was 6 years old.
These stories and more are recounted here. Also appearing are Dan Issel, Adolph Rupp, Tony Delk, Joker Phillips, Valerie Still, and many others. Their stories – along with legendary games, improbable victories, and historical events – are told with a twist: They are all tied to God’s story.
Have fun! Have faith!
Go Cats! Go God!
