One of the main reasons Mark Stoops accepted the Kentucky job was a promise from Mitch Barnhart for major facility upgrades. Mitch met with boosters and sent out a letter to K-Fund donors outlining a series of upgrades to Commonwealth Stadium and the Nutter Field House. But, in order to make all of that happen, the program needs funding from the Legislature. The university is currently working on a bonding request for the next Kentucky legislative session.
cn|2 just posted a troubling video of Kentucky Speaker of the House Greg Stumbo answering the question of whether or not Mark Stoops would get the new facilities he was promised. His answer? “We better wait and see if he can win a football game first.” **evil laugh**
