Kentucky’s David Beaty took over the game’s national anthem on Saturday night, which he did to honor the state’s fallen soldiers.
The game was a homecoming for Kentucky’s basketball team after it played a home-and-home series against Missouri and Arkansas.
Kentucky is one of the 10 unbeaten teams in the country, and Beaty became the first head coach in the history of the SEC to be named to the title.
He had previously said he would do it as a private citizen, but added it was a matter of honor.
“This is my time.
I’m the coach.
I want to be remembered as one of our great coaches.
I love this team, and I love being here, and we’re a special group,” Beaty said.
“We’re going to honor our fallen brothers and sisters, our parents, our friends and we have a special responsibility to do that for the men and women in uniform who have given everything they’ve got to our great state and this great university.”
Beaty also addressed the state of Kentucky’s Confederate heritage.
“I believe in what we stand for, and this is something I want Kentucky to do with our football team.
“So let’s honor those in uniform and let’s not let this go.” “
