We’ve all been trying to relive 8pril the 2nd for the past month or so and will continue to do so until we get number 9. There’s YouTube videos, there’s our own pictures and videos we took of the celebration, and there are our memories, still fresh considering the win was roughly 4 weeks ago. Kentucky is rich with tradition and national championships, and with BBN being a fan base who lives and breathes basketball year round, there are DVD’s out there that were made to allow us to do that. While some of you may own the recent DVD’s that have came out over the past couple of years, there are also DVD’s from years past that allow fans to relive monumental moments in the Kentucky basketball program. Here is a look at the top DVD’s I would be interested in owning and re-living.
1. 100 Years of Kentucky Basketball:
This DVD features rare footage and interviews from the past 100 years and features highlights and interviews with players and coaches who have made our program what it is today. It focuses on the teams over the past 100 years that have had the greatest impact on Kentucky basketball.
2. The Championship DVD’s
1958 NCAA Basketball Championship Documentary:
This DVD replays the entire 1958 Championship game and also provides commentary from Adolph Rupp and Harry Lancaster who break down games throughout the 1957-58 season.
1966 NCAA Championship Game Kentucky Wildcats vs. Texas Western: This DVD features the 1966 championship game in it’s entirety.
1978 Championship DVD: This DVD shows Kentucky’s fifth national championship, and focuses on Jack “Goose” Givens, who had what many say was the best game in any championship played up to that point, scoring a total of 41 points and leading the cats onto their 94-88 victory over Duke.
1996 NCAA Basketball Championship DVD: This DVD includes the championship game, but also the final four game UK played against UMass.
1998 NCAA Basketball Championship DVD: This DVD allows you to relive the 1998 championship game.
3. Adolph Rupp: Myth, Legend, and Fact:
This documentary focuses on the rumors behind Coach Rupp and deals with the racism that Rupp has frequently been associated with it. And excerpt of the DVD says this: Gabriel’s documentary is a straight-on look at the accusations made against Rupp over the years supported by interesting, insightful interviews with many former players, coaches and friends of Coach Rupp such as C.M. Newton, Larry Conley, former Rupp assistant coach Neil Reed and Jim Tucker, an African-American from Paris, Kentucky for whom Rupp helped arrange a scholarship to Duquesne University in the 1950′s. This documentary may change some people’s view of the coach and at the very least provide documented fact behind the perhaps fictional racist image of one of the country’s greatest collegiate coaches.
4. Blue Dawn:
Blue Dawn relives Calipari’s first season as the head coach of the cats and focuses on our ride back to the top.
5. Baby Wildcat DVD:
This is a DVD that helps you relive the past while your baby learns for the future. There’s no better way to describe this DVD than by the description the DVD gives itself. “This DVD features officially licensed NCAA footage of Wildcat sports, highlighting the marching band and campus attractions, along with sights, sounds, traditions, and colors of the University of Kentucky. BABY Wildcat® combines all the great things you love about the University of Kentucky, with all the things you want your lil’ toddler to learn – numbers, letters, colors and more. Featuring music from the Wildcat Marching Band, as well as original footage of the “Wildcat Kids”, BABY Wildcat® is the ideal way to raise tomorrow’s fans today!
Watch together… cheer together… learn together. Raising Tomorrow’s Kentucky Fan Today!”
If you don’t own these DVD’s, you should. They are a great way to relive the past while bonding with other Kentucky fans. Watch Together. Cheer Together. Learn Together.
