Kentucky returns 2060 of 5500 allotted tickets for UofL game

In what seems to be a sign of the times so far this preaseson, Drew Deener reports that Kentucky has returned 2060 of its 5500 tickets allotted from Louisville for the Governor’s Cup. The tickets will go on sale to Louisville season ticket holders tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Ouch.

UPDATE: The tickets were only offered to season ticket holders, which begs the question: why not offer them to the rest of the fans before returning them?

    I’m a student and went to the ticket office to purchase a couple. As a college kid, I’m not spending $78 to sit in the top of that $h!t hole. But yes this is very sad.

    Why would a UK fan want to go to that game to get beer thrown on them by unruly drunk, obnoxious Loserville fans. I would rather watch in on my 60″ TV.

    UK fans are tired of UK football and are going to get someones attention. UK football is the largest revenue sport at the school we are going to get their attention on the balance sheet. Unfortunatley there will be damage to other sports including basketball because of this action by the fanbase. Already basketball tix and donation requirements have went up to try and compensate for the loss of football revenue.

    I actually haven’t given up on this team, but I want nothing to do with Papa John’s Stadium or even going to Louisville. Every time I’m there I feel like I’m in the middle of a Jersey Shore episode. I know the whole city isn’t like that, but I hate that place. Last time I was there, I almost had to shoot someone for throwing a beer bottle at my truck because I had a UK license plate.

    As bad as KSR and the UK athletic department want this rivalry with Louisville to grow, the tribe has spoken– Get the hell out of this Louisville game. We gain nothing from it. We foolishly risk our season, unnecessarily. The success this program has enjoyed over the last ten years could have been even greater without this game. Now we are stuck with an in-state rival for recruiting. Rather than get this toss up, season determining game, we should play another out of state program that we can consistently beat, but is a step above the cupcakes on our silver platter schedule.

    There are fans like this on both sides…last year at Commonwealth my car was keyed and UL plates bent in half….However, this game will not go away in the future…If Western beats you do you want to drop them too? I guess you could always play Georgetown College

    Pretty simple… everybody thinks we’re gonna lose. I’ve been offered some tickets, and the stadium is five minutes from my house, and I had to think about it for a long time before I decided that I didn’t really want sit through the inevitable verbal abuse. The UK-UL thing is nastier than ever. Harsh feelings from the Final Four.

    I love the city of Louisville. I live here and I hope I always do. Still doesn’t change the way I feel about it.

    Sadly in 02 I was at the John when I almost got in a fight with 3 younger (early 20’s) UK fans who were throwing stuff at a UofL couple who were about the same age. They were ready to fight when I told them to stop and start representing the University with class. #10 I know that stuff happens on both sides and I hope both fan bases can get to a point where they can at least go to a game without being harassed.

    Oh puhhlease guys. Quit making up lies and be a little more mature. You don’t get beer thrown on you here or spit on and our fan base is no more jersey shore than yours is as this metro also has UK fans in it.

    It’s just a reflection of the fanbase is speaking with their wallets….taking a page out of the UofL fan playbook. It will work as money talks. Good luck on your next hire.

    I can’t believe I agree with Matt but your ticket office should have publicized they had some for sale before returning them to us. Also, why was your ticket office selling them for $30 more? Are they that hard up for money that they were hoping to make a small profit on road game tickets?

    Funny to see both sides in a pissing match to determine who will be the best of the “middle of the pack”. Lville is in a crappy conference, and UK will suck until we alteast make an attempt to do something about it or atleast try to.

    Lville is doing something about it, but UK STILL refuses to do anything about it – just write the damn check and hire someone already!!! I don’t want to hear about how there isn’t any money either, my season tickets jumped $300 from last year $1300+ to $1600+ and UK wonders why so many people didn’t renew. The cash cow of our athletics program is slowly starving to death…

    Why is South Carolina preseason ranked top 10?? Two words, Steve Spurrier. They used to suck!

    Is there anyone in here that truly believes that Mitch Barnhart truly sought the best coach in America that he could possibly get his hands on…and he ended up with Joker Phillips?!? He did the exact same thing with Billy G., wanting something for nothing. He wouldn’t have hired Cal unless his job depended on it, which it did.

    You can’t survive in the SEC nowadays without a big/proven name attached to the program. We can’t recruit because of our geographic location alone!!

    I/m just tired of people either defending this mediocre program or just throwing their hands up and saying “well we can’t get anybody anyways, etc”.

    As someone who moved to Louisville many years ago. I have always considered myself a UK fan. I did like what Howard was able to do with the UL program to raise their prominence. I wish he had been given a chance in Lexington first before Claiborne. I am a long time Canes fan and I wore my colors to a UL game against UM a few years ago and was harassed incessantly. I also observed UK fans in Lexington threatening two UL fans at Commonwealth to a point where other UK fans had to step in to protect them. So both fan bases have elements of Jersey Shore mentality. Give it all a rest and quit giving everyone a reason to hate both fan bases.

    how many would consider say playin for nick saban at ky a proven winner turning a program around and leaving ur own mark for others to follow its simple hire a good coach an have a good football team hire a medi oaker coach (rich brooks) an have a medi oaker team hire a crappy coach (joker phillips) and have a crappy team just like its been the last 2 yrs like it will b this year and like it has always been

    It has nothing to do with the coach ! this is all on the so called fans which suck! Support your F-ing team. ” I don’t want to go because we are going to lose” “I am not going to give Loserville any of my money”” Our coach sucks” All I hear are loser UK fans with excuses. Now when the UL fan base talks about the UK fan base they will be correct. Wait for all the calls on the underdogs show today! I will be there win or lose… but I am 100% sure we are going to win this game,So after we do all you losers will call Matts show and tell him how great it is.You all make me sick!!! Also, the UK ticket office should have offered to general public before returning them. Maybe they were not alloud to do so. And # 10 your are a p…y if you let someone spit on you and take it. I have seen the same crap at Commonweath too.

    #35 steve: But your post presupposes that Nick Saban (or equivalent) would take the job if only offered enough money. This is a false premise. The fact of the matter is no “big name” coach is going to be stupid enough to take the UK job when other better jobs are available for the same money every year.

    And, that list above that CamoCat put up: Solich, fired by Nebraska; Sherman, fired by Texas A&M; Hill, fired by Fresno State; and Schiano, currently the head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucks. Solich, Sherman, and Hill look like modern day Currys to me, and no coach is leaving an NFL head job for UK – not one.

    Leach is the only name that even is a prayer, and I personally don’t see why he would leave Washington State for UK, when WashSt has more tradition and is in a weak Pac-12.

    Rich Brooks need to take a large part of the blame for this coaching hire. He was the one that was pushing continuity to Barnhart, citing the success that followed him at Oregon. Out of curiosity can anyone name another program that hasn’t had a winning record in their conference in well over 30 years that enjoys the fan support UK has?

    Louisville has moved up to a 14.5 point favorite. I really wish I had locked them in at 13.5. The total is 41 and I don’t see how UK comes up with more than 14 but holds UL to less than 35. It will probably go over and Cards will cover.

    Can we please have fewer updates on this joke of a program. Please.

    So, the board basically has the game as UofL 28, UK 13. I think I like UK to score more than 13, but to hold UofL to less than 28. If I were a betting man, I would take UK and the points, but steer clear of the total.

We are absurdly overrated. 2 of my 3 most painful moments as a UL fan came to UK. The Micheal Bush broken leg and the Lorenzen game in Papa Johns in 03. This game is going to make or break the season for both teams.

    Product versus cost feasibility….simple as that.. I love UK Football…but I won’t buy season tickets as I know I will be unable to attend each game…..the other day I had a three of the 3 game mini-packs in the shopping cart…and backed off..because I KNOW that when we get to those games that I will be able to attend….I can buy @ the game cheaper than the $ charged NOW….BECAUSE THE PRODUCT IS OVERPRICED!

    Econimically….not a great deal for the product offered. And that is the UK Athletic Dept fault not just Joker’s fault as most assume.I believe it should be not just a better product on the field but a more econimically feasible cost based on the product offered.

I have gone to all the bowl games in the last 5 yrs and follow the Basketball team in the NCAAs.

    38 Every name on that list has accomplished twice what Joker Phillips has. Fired or not. And your NFL head coach not leaving argument doesn’t hold up, again see Steve Spurrier. I use his name alot because HE WINS!!!!! You can’t argue with that, and if he doesn’t win, he will assemble a very talented team at the very least. Are you kidding when you act like you wouldn’t rather have Mike Sherman (Former GB Packers head coach)than Joker Freakin Phillips?? What planet do you live on?? Solich has compiled a 109-58 record as a head coach!! I should have put Ron Zook on that list too, or is he just not good enough for UK?? He was good enough for Florida to give him a shot.

    And by the way 37, I don’t have to take the time out of my life to buy 4 season tickets + pass, travel to Commonwealth, pay for a hotel room, buy food and gas, 6-7 times a year just so I can consider myself a true fan. I’ve been doing that s&*t for 7 years now. That’s well over a $20,000 investment since I started, does that make me any more of a fan than someone who can’t afford to go to just one game? No, but it makes me feel like a damn fool… So keep on funding mediocre football, good for you it must make you proud. I will still pull for my Cats, but from the comfort and affordability of my home.

    UofL will face the Wildcats on Sunday, Sept. 2 at 3:30 p.m. in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

    The tickets were returned last week by Kentucky from its fan allotment of 5,500 for the game.

    UK spokesman Tony Neely said if UK hadn’t been able to move the 2,060 tickets, which were made available to any Wildcats fans who were interested for $78 apiece, the school would have owed $156,000 to cover them.

He took Florida who was on probation, to a powerhouse in three years!! I hate Steve Spurrier, but the man won 6 SEC Championships, played in the National Championship 2 times and won 1 of them. Please tell me you are not comparing his coaching ability to that of Joker Phillips. If Joker could give us an average of 7 wins a year in his first 5 years, we would all be thrilled, but it’s just not going to happen. By the way Joker hs 6 and 5 wins first two seasons at UK and 2-6 both seasons in SEC…not quite 7,8.

    You all are too funny…You had no problem showing up in the past at PJ “Pizza Pit” as you call it when you were pretty sure you were going to win..you had no problem going to the “Chicken Bucket” as you all call it when you were pretty sure you were going to win…truth is you think UK is going to get beat and you have all these “lame” excuses.

    5 – According to your boy @thomasbeisner your allotment of tickets has been available to the general public since July 14th.

    50 – I would believe your price argument too if you hadn’t sold 5,353 of your 5,500 in 2010 for the same price (according to @J680Anderson). Just admit your fans are fair-weather or say your boycotting your Joke® of a head coach. “An excuse is worse than a lie, for an excuse is a lie, guarded.” — Alexander Pope

    71 – Does supporting your biggest revenue sport mean anything to you? I thought ya’ll had the best fanbase in the nation? I thought you had 50%+ of the population in Louisville? Ignorance is bliss.

    To everyone- I don’t believe UK added the $30 to the face value of the ticket. That started several years ago, I think by UL, but I could be wrong, to charge more for tickets to the UL/UK game. The increase was not passed along to season ticket holders.

    I am surprised that UL didn’t keep the increase when they try to sell them to their season ticket holders, but I suspect they were concerned they wouldn’t be able to sell them either. It only works when the opposing fans teams are willing to pay out the nose for it…
