Sept. 12, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The University of Kentucky Student Government will kick off its "Big Year of Bashes" with the "Hoosier Daddy?" street party to set the tone for Saturday's football game against Indiana University. The party will take place at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, on Euclid Avenue between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Limestone Street.

The party comes as UK's football team is off to its best start since 1998 following its spectacular defeat of Louisville that compelled the return of the Governor's Cup to Lexington and its stunning win this past weekend over UTEP. The team is 2-0 on the season and has sparked a renewed feeling of football pride.

Like "Gator Roast" last year, "Hoosier Daddy?" will take place outside the UK Student Center on a section of Euclid Avenue that will be temporarily closed. In attendance will be President Lee T. Todd Jr., Patsy Todd, Director of Athletics Mitch Barnhart and Associate Provost for Student Affairs Patricia Terrell.

"Patsy and I had a great time at last year's Gator Roast and look forward to joining the UK students in these festivities," Todd said. "It's a great way for everyone to show their Wildcat spirit and have a little fun."

Students will be entertained by the sounds of Lexington favorite Voodoo Symphony, which will perform at 9 p.m.

Student Government is providing complimentary popcorn, soft drinks, lemonade and water. SG will also offer free multi-colored beads to those in attendance.

"This event is not to be missed," said Student Body President Tim Robinson. "We're going to have a blast and get pumped up for another Wildcat victory against the Hoosiers."

Robinson asks that all UK students help spread the word about the event.
