Football facility to be named after Joe Craft

IMG_1460

A multimillion dollar donation will get you a lot of things in this world, and in Joe Craft’s case, it got him the naming rights to the new Kentucky football training facility.

Today, the UK Board of Trustees decided to formally name the new facility the Joe Craft Football Training Facility. Mr. Craft donated $4.79 million for its construction, which was enough to put his name on the building.

As you probably already now, the Kentucky basketball practices and trains in the Joe Craft Center across campus.

Joe’s obviously been great to UK Athletics.

    that’s not going to be confusing to freshmen at all…
    “OK Google, Navigate to Joe Craft”
    “I found 2 locations near you, what sport do you play?”
    “Huh?”

    They make an agreement with Mitch Barnhart that they’ll put his name on it if he agrees to tear up his contract.

    Call it: “Barnhart’s Struggle Complex”

    This is a much better use of his money than backing failed republican politicians. The best thing he can do for UK football is keep pumping out Dat coal! All those dirty carbon emissions contributing to global warming will accelerate sea level rise and flooding in Florida and Louisiana which hopefully sends those football recruits our way!

    I would have thought it might take 20 million to get your name on a building, Joe is getting by cheap!

    I don’t even care about anyone’s penalties anymore, hookers, etc. God only knows what we’re doing.
    At Big Blue Madness, a kid walked in wearing a Gucci blazer. That kid didn’t pay for it, and neither did anyone in his family.
