â†µWhat we haven't mentioned yet is that even one of Wall's least cool moments in UK regalia so far has been lovingly immortalized by the Big Blue faithful. â†µâ†µ
â†µThat, the flex and turn, is the John Wall Dance. It is so popular among Kentucky fans that its Facebook page has almost 5,000 fans, and renditions have occurred on Cougar Town and on the Great Wall of China. Search for it on Google or YouTube and you will see how quickly it has spread. â†µ
â†µWall isn't exactly taking credit for the trend. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥"It's not really my dance; it's just something I saw in a video and decided to do at Midnight Madness," he said. "I never thought it would get so big." â†µâ†µ
â†µBut it is undeniably his dance now, a part of the tremendous hype for this Kentucky season, which is still less than ten games old. Should the Wildcats be cutting nets down come March and April, I'd expect most of the state to be happily stepping to the same beat. â†µâ†µ
