Tim Shaughnessy, the Senator behind the bill for UK and UofL to play every year, made an appearance on Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning to talk about his proposed legislation. Matt Jones stepped away from the microphone — something he rarely does — and gave Sen. Shaughnessy the open airwaves to explain the bill.
“It was a pure publicity stunt.”
That’s it. Nothing to see here.
He said the UK vs. UofL annual game requirement was only included in an effort to draw attention to the bill, and it will be removed going forward.
So, there ya go. It was all for attention.
Have a listen…
