    Excellent. Should have done this a long time ago.

      So, did they use the same concrete foundation? If so, I’m not sure how knee room would be any better. Seems like it might even be worse. Maybe I’m missing something.

      Jhnny, I don’t see how they could do it any other way. changing the concrete would be a major undertaking – might as well change the whole setup and add the luxury suites if you are doing that. Legroom looks pretty good in the pictures, but maybe that is just the front row.

      Yeah, there’s just not enough room period up there. Add that to the fact that the average Kentuckian is 50-100 lbs overweight and it makes the whole experience miserable if you’ve got a 250+ lb guy on both sides of you.

    I hope the bleacher seats cost less. Kinda dumb not to put seats all around.

    What took so long??

      Well, the crew tossing the seats around looked real professional.

      You could probably toss those seats off the back of a truck on the interstate and not hurt them. That’s high impact ABS plastic.

    Still would prefer an on campus arena. But not going to happen.
