Solid Blue Fans React to Reputation After Riots

Solid Blue fans say not all the trouble caused during riots is from UK's student body.
Media outlets all over the nation have been showing images of Saturday night's riots on and around UK's campus, leaving some Solid Blue fans feeling the student body is getting a bad reputation.

Those that were in the middle of the crowd Saturday night say there were plenty of non-students and non-Lexington residents causing trouble as well.

Police arrested 27 individuals following the riots downtown. Multiple cars were tipped over and even burned along with couches.

More than 150 police officers were called in to quell the riots. Some say that added police presence may have played a part in the rowdiness, even though law enforcement interfered very little with the crowd, except to prevent more vehicles from being tipped over and other fires being lit.

Lexington Police are planning a news conference Sunday prior to the National Championship to outline their plans for after the game.

Many around town believe rioting will be even worse if Kentucky wins their eight national title Monday night.
