  • Melton marked by passion

    Brian Melton has a dirty secret.

    “I was actually a Louisville fan growing up,” the self-proclaimed University of Kentucky ultimate fan said. “I hate to tell people that. I was born in Louisville and my dad went to medical school at U of L. When I was 10 or so, I became a Kentucky fan because I had a lot of family peer pressure. I converted and never went back. Once I went to UK and experienced that, it was pretty much lights out.”
