This is me making a plea to everyone out there who is a Kentucky football fan. Please, let’s do it again for Missouri like we did against Florida. I’m asking this on Monday, so everyone has time to make plans for babysitters, extra tickets, parking situation, etc.
I attended the game on Saturday as a fan, sitting in Section 211. It was fantastic as it was the best atmosphere I’ve ever been a part of, even if the game didn’t go as planned. From the time we arrived to our respective tailgate you could tell it’s a different feeling around Lexington. More Kentucky flags flew high, less orange was walking around. Inside the stadium, fans stood the entire game with literally no one – young or old – asking for us to sit down, but rather joining in making noise on key plays.
Now, after the game there was pure dejection, but we can’t let that happen as fans for Missouri. The Tigers are back-to-back SEC East champs and this game is just as important as the Florida game. Now, I’m not saying we need a blue out, but let’s do something special to keep the energy in the stadium high. Whatever the suggestions are will probably be great, so let us hear them. Most importantly though, let’s make sure it’s another sell out.
