I'd like to call the 2011 total insurmountable, but I know better than to bet against the Big Blue Nation.
Last year's camp-out was the previous record holder with approximately 525 tents, but UK fans needed only until Friday morning to top that. Since 9 a.m. this morning, another 20 tents have been erected on Stoll Field across the street from the basketball complex.
At 2 p.m. on Friday, UK staff handed out control cards to fans. Patient Kentucky fans have been distracted by visits from John Calipari and members of men's basketball, women's basketball and volleyball teams.
