Rupp allowed Sports Illustrated writer Frank Deford to stand in the Wildcats' locker room at halftime. Deford said he was stunned by Rupp's racist halftime exhortations.

"He said, 'You've got to beat those coons,' " Deford said. "He turned to (center) Thad Jaracz. 'You go after that big coon.' . . . He talked that way all the time. . . A chill went through me. I was standing in the back of the room, and I looked around at the players. They all kind of ducked their heads. They were embarrassed."

In a quote from Harry Lancaster, long-time assistant to Rupp, in his book "Adolph Rupp As I Knew Him" Rupp said after a meeting with Dr. John Oswald, UK President at the time, "Harry, that son of a ***** is ordering me to get some ni**** in here. What am I going to do? He's the boss."
