    Billboards of UK players in Louisville?

    http://blog.sportscolumn.com/
    5. Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    Brian Brohm threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns on a mere eight completions in the first quarter of a 58-42 shootout against Middle Tennessee State. By the time the game ended, Brohm had a career high 401 yards and five touchdowns to bring his season totals up to 776 yards and 9 TDs. Brohm could be commanding another air assault when the Cardinals travel to Lexington for a game against rival Kentucky. And if the Heisman trophy isn't motivation enough, he should have some added incentive to put a hurting on the Wildcats after the Kentucky athletic department erected billboards of their well-known players throughout Louisville.

    Yes there are as many or more UK fans there as UL fans...For some reason they seem to forget that Louisville is located in KENTUCKY so it is a possibility that there are fans for KY in the city.

    I do not think so but it would be ok with me if there were..they have a good program and it gives fans something to talk about.

    There used to be Pitino billboards but after the rioting they took them down

    If UL thought they could get their money's worth by placing a billboard in Lexington, they would.

    Simple case of economics.

    The UK ones have been up in Louisville for a while now. I want to say sometime in June/July. I pass one everyday on 65.

    UK is the state's school. There are a ton of UK students who are from Louisville. I think there is a big difference.

    You're right...It's not like anyone from Lexington attends UL.

    But there is a lot more students that go to UK from Louisville then there are Kentucky kids outside the "greater Louisville area that go to UL. And again, I reiterate, UK is the state school and Louisville is in Kentucky.
