KSR’s own Freddie Maggard spoke with UK football head coach Mark Stoops following today’s Kroger Field announcement to discuss what he thinks about the transition and the impact it makes on the program.

We’re very proud to play on Kroger Field,” Stoops said. “We’ll be happy to open that stadium our second game of the year.”

As far as UK’s partnership with Kroger, Stoops says it’s not a surprise to him the deal got done..

“We have a great relationship with Kroger. I might be the only one that goes in Kroger every day, that’s where I stop and get my coffee every day. I’m a Kroger man.

      You “check out” at the check out line at Kroger.
      Good joke, but I still hate “Kroger Field”.
      They support U of L, U of Cincinnati, Ohio State and probably more.

      Ok thanks runnin. Yes I agree I hate the name. I still wouldn’t like it at all, but at least make it kroger stadium.

    my problem is most of the players don’t like it, and they’re the reason the stadium exist on the first place.

    Can we all at least agree that “Kroger Field” is at least better than “Walmart Field”?
