RIP Mr. Wildcat....you are already missed. I hope the university will keep your seat vacant for years to come. You represented the University with nothing but class for so many years. Every UK basketball fans mourns your passing, but we all know you are in Big Blue heaven looking down on us.

UK stands for UNITED KINGDOM, and always will, no matter what a bunch of southerners think.

Drood, you're just disrespectful...really, to make such a statement on a page about a man who passed away and who had a great impact at UK, yes we can call it UK, was just really classless, hope you feel better about yourself for saying it....Mr. Keightley RIP, the Cats will miss you!

Hey Drood, the fact that UK was used was not a shot at you and the other UK. This is about a man that was dedicated to a school and a job for many years that passed away... He needs to be respected and remembered for that... Mr. Keightley, I'm sure you will be remembered for years... They should retire jersey number 81 with Mr. Wildcat on the back... Btw drood, if you are so proud of the United Kingdom, then HA... Thats what us southerners use for "Haul Ass"
