606, $10 Kentucky vs. Mississippi State tickets are coming to Paintsville on Thursday, and I love it.
Kentucky is trying to get butts in the seats for UK’s colossal SEC matchup against Mississippi State on Saturday and so far they haven’t done a great job, but they’re trying to change that and you gotta love the effort with $10 tickets for Eastern Kentucky residents.
Listen, some fans are going to get upset that they paid $42, or $48, $64, or whatever to be at Kroger Field on Saturday night, and others will pay $10 but would you rather be there in a packed house or a stadium that’s only 70 percent full? I’d choose the former.
I applaud UK’s effort to get fans in the stands and if they can get a few thousand folks from Paintsville there you know it’s going to be a rowdy crowd.
