Before last night’s ring ceremony at halftime of the UK vs. Mississippi State game, the 1996 team gathered to sign autographs for fans inside Rupp Arena. KSTV talked with former Cat Walter McCarty about the fans still supporting his team, finally getting a ring and if his former coach could ever get the same sort of welcome in Lexington.
