..........in 2005, UK's Johnny Rondo (far left) had 8 steals in a ESPN game against Mississippi State. The CATS took down the Bulldogs 94-78 in front of the likes of Mrs. Judd, ESPN Gameday's crew, and countless numbers of old people who were asleep by the second television timeout. It was "the loudest crowd ever recorded" (in the history of the world I'm guessing) for a ESPN Gameday segment. Which, as any fan will tell you, wasn't as loud as the next home win. Gets kinda watered down when every home win becomes the "loudest I've ever heard it". Anywho, Rondo's eight steals tied the school mark set by Wayne Turner in 1997.
