Needless to say, he accepted that offer immediately, and is also a member of that college's tennis team. So he doesn't have an actual "connection" to UK, but he remains to this day a diehard UK fan and always will be. There are many other instances and ways in which someone can become a fan of a school's sports teams without having attended that school.
Was that school Centre College?
I really don't understand the disdain for "sidewalk fans" or whatever you want to call them. If they buy the stuff and get the royalty for my program, I'm cool with it.
