Senior Day on Television


This is taken from bigbluehistory.net

"One of the most cherished days by UK fans is senior day when the seniors will run through a hoop to center court where they are greeted by family, the coach might say a few words and the entire stadium sings 'My Old Kentucky Home' by Stephen Foster. At one time, the networks would carry this, with more than a few announcers mentioning it was one of the most touching ceremonies they have seen in sports. After a number of opposing coaches complained that it gave an unfair recruiting advantage to UK, either the NCAA or the networks made a point to NOT show this ceremony on national television. "

My first question is this an NCAA rule or is it a network rule?

The reason and I am bringing this up is two fold.

One, watching UK's Senior Day was a special moment for me growing up and I miss it.

Secondly, I was watching the pregame show for the UNC vs. Duke game the other night on ESPN and they showed Duke's Senior Day ceremony.  That got me to thinking, "How come they can show Duke's Senior Day ceremony and not UK's??"  I would have loved to have seen Krebs hugging his mother.

Thanks
