UK fans came out by the dozens in London Tuesday to get their hands on Final Four t-shirts.
He was a member of the last basketball team to hang a banner in Rupp Arena.
Although Jeff Sheppard may not be on the basketball court anymore...his business allows him to still be involved with Kentucky Basketball.
"We are selling Final Four t-shirts, everyone is excited about the Final Four, I am too. I am so proud of the guys this year,” Sheppard said.
As a former wildcat Sheppard can relate to the Kentucky/Louisville rivalry, but he thinks this game will be a little different.
"It is not about bragging rights anymore, it is about something more and both coaches know that and will tell their teams that. But you are still playing Lousivlle,” Sheppard said.
But he doesn't seem worried about the game, "When Kentucky wins the National Championship we will be right back here at Gondolier selling national championship t-shirts."
Sheppard says he thinks this year’s Kentucky team will end up among the ranks of the "Comeback Cats" and fans will have to come up with a fitting name.
