A Plea for Saturday’s Game

commonwealth

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.

      As a season ticket holder, it makes me excited to pay huge money to keep my seats each year to the K fund, only to see Stoops put tickets on sale for $25 in an attempt to sell out the stadium. To us who have had season tickets before UK even moved to Commonwealth, this is ridiculous and an insult.

    Couldn’t agree more and as if I didn’t live in Colorado I would be there. A season ticket holder with Curry in the ’90’s I saw some pretty terrible football but this team is so close. Hope this long suffering fan base and UK students shows up early, stays late and is loud all game!! GBB!!

    you shouldnt have to ask, we as a fanbase (true fans) should want to pack the new CWS every single game if they (we) want to see a better product on the field. GO!
    COME ON! BEAT MISSOU! GO CATS!

    I am actually really afraid so many fans got ahead of themselves last week that they are just deflated and angry right now. There’s no reason to be angry or give up, we lost a close hard fought game.

    And when was the last time Kentucky was the Vegas favorite vs. a top 25 team? That alone should get our fanbase back up and excited.

      That’s exactly what happened. It seemed everyone had already just assumed we were winning, even when we haven’t done so against Florida in 28 freaking years. I was a step behind most but hell even I got caught in the hype.

      O Line has to play better, Towles has to go more accurate and have better pocket recognition (being quicker is just one aspect of it), and Dawsons play calling cant be vanilla. There was a lot of plays that made you wonder if he was overthinking them…Ill take that school of thought since he called two pretty good ones to start the season and that makes me think on that he over-analyzed them as opposed to not knowing what he was doing.

    I was there Saturday night. I was at the first game ever played there vs VPI in 1973. Been to many since. The NEW CWS is unbelievable. I have been to many of the SEC venues. Yes Neyland, Tiger, Sanford, etc. are bigger but NONE are better. That is a major league stadium in every aspect. It now feels like a total SEC stadium, the student body acted (shakers included) like a SEC student body, and no opposition player is every going to tell another UK football player that there is not an SEC atmosphere at UK’s stadium.

    If Stoops is going to be able to build what we want built, John Wall is correct…every game needs to have the attendance and enthusiasm of the Florida game…

    The best to Coach Stoops and players.

    -put towels in every seat
    -if you’re doing a blackout or whiteout, UK should provide shirts
    -put an image of decibel meter on the big screens for 3rd down plays when UK is on defense, and have it measure the crowd noise.

    Yea yea yea, same old story, same old result, you can say whatever you want, sugar coat it any way to help you feel better, but this team is same old kentucky team, can’t win and probably never will. The opening drive for UK offense says it all, has been same old story, can’t catch a ball that hits you in the stomach, tell the fanes don’t give up. The sooner you accept the better you will be.

I had a better week waiting on a win we didn’t get than I would have waiting on a loss. So what we lost to Florida again… We are Wildcats we are used to this shit. I’ve been a wildcat my whole life that’s football basketball baseball softball volleyball shit I support the chest team too if we have one. If you can’t stand taking some losses in the fall just go be one of them people who claim to be wildcat basketball fans and Alabama football fans. Just don’t expect any respect from people who consider there self true fans of ANY team because you don’t deserve it. We’re 2\1 I can live with that. #stoopstroops

I was at the game on Sat and eventhough we lost it was the best UK football experience I have ever had. The crowd was loud. They stayed the whole game. And you could just feel a different energy around this team. I have never been more proud of our football program. I would drive up again this week if I could. I just hope our fans realize how important their support is and show up again. We wanted the FL streak to end I know but this game could be our turning point. Show up people, be loud, Be KY proud!
