Good Question: Reply All-UK Questions.

We all know fans pack Rupp to see the Wildcats, but there is one tradition they eagerly await.

John in Lexington- Who decides who is the "Y" at the UK basketball games?

This past Saturday former football Wildcat and NFL player Tim Masthay wasn't punting rather he was completing the Y in Kentucky in front of fans.

The UK Cheerleading Advisor says they only use people who are recognizable and need no introduction, their role is to excite the crowd.

That advisor along with UK Marketing typically pick the celebrity, but they don't make an official selection until after the game begins.

Some of the most recent "Y" celebrities include Ashley Judd, John Wall and Lebron James.

Rocky in Morehead-What is the design on the back of the UK jerseys?

The uniforms introduced last year are all about symbolism, they feature embedded images of the championship banners, a pic of Memorial Hall, roses for the Derby and a wildcat.

Alice in Lexington- What are the words to the UK fight song?

The song was written in the 1920s by Carl A. Lambert, the first chairman of the Music Department.

The words are as follows:

On, on, U of K, we are right for the fight today,
Hold that ball and hit that line;
Ev'ry Wildcat star will shine;
We'll fight, fight, fight, for the blue and white
As we roll to that goal, Varsity,
And we'll kick, pass and run, 'till the battle is won,
And we'll bring home the victory.
