19 Years Ago Today – August 25, 1997

- New Kentucky Football Coach Hal Mumme makes his debut on UK call-in radio show the “Big Blue Line” on WVLK- AM 590. One of Coach Mumme’s most frequently asked questions is to explain his team’s unusual method of conducting non-contact football practices. Mumme assured the fans there were indeed times the team worked out in pads and invited the crowd to come and see for themselves at UK’s open to the public practices. Mumme’s first game as the head coach at Kentucky will be this Saturday when the Wildcats take on Louisville at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington.
